Amber Velvet Nails Are The Glitzy, Golden Fall Manicure Trend Of 2023

While we love dark and vampy nails for spooky season, the deep, golden glisten of an amber manicure exudes autumn like no other. These nails perfectly capture the essence of a cozy fall day, being curled up on the couch with a pumpkin spice latte, ready to watch "Practical Magic." The glitz and glam of the soothing amber hues can carry you right into November with a velvety warmth. While we've seen some beautiful and less expected nail trends this fall, like deep evergreen, the glitzy amber manicure is right on trend with the golden fall foliage and fresh pumpkin pie we so adore this time of year.

Velvet nails mimic the soft, crushed, shimmering essence of velvet fabric, making them ideal for the holiday season. "The effect is very magical," nail artist Hannah Lee told Allure. So, if you haven't yet booked your fall 2023 manicure, peruse this amber velvet inspiration for some truly divine, cozy, and magical nails. You may want to get your gold jewelry out and ready to complement the warmth of this trend to truly sparkle in any crowd.

A warm glow

If you aren't ready to go full-on glitz, try selecting two or three nails to sparkle, while the rest simply shine in a warm amber polish. This cozy manicure is the perfect starter for the holiday season and is versatile enough to suit all your autumn adventures. What's more, this trend is super easy to replicate at home.

Glimmering ombre

A creative spin on the look, this mani incorporates the pumpkin spice latte trend into the picture, making for a truly autumnal scene. A glitter ombré on a creamy base along with the warm, amber hues is a fun and flirty take and we're totally here for it. The velvety texture of the glitter polish should capture the luxury of the trend in all the right ways.

Bring on the glitz

This rich, glitzy, burnt amber manicure is great to complement your autumnal wardrobe — oversized chunky sweaters, in particular — and versatile enough for both the pumpkin patch and Friendsgiving. You can even skip the accessories thanks to the glimmer this manicure brings, as it demands to be center stage with good reason.

Multi-toned glam

Featuring deep, sparkling amber as well as some lighter pink tones, this glitzy manicure is a fun veer into ombré territory, and we're loving the variety. You could take this manicure in a few different directions, with varying shades of amber and other warm hues. Shorter nails also suit this trend well, as the glitter speaks on its own.

Moody and mysterious

Ideal for Halloween week, this glowing amber polish with a single glimmering black nail is the perfect transition from warm and cozy to dark and mysterious. Try pairing the manicure with some oversized, ethereal rings to fully complete the vibe, and you're set for the spookiest night of the year.
