There’s something that happens every year that makes a somewhat obvious nail polish color feel so fresh. Maybe it’s the change of season or the new way of wearing it. Or maybe brands are just doing the color better than ever. That’s how I felt seeing Bella Hadid’s brown nail polish she rocked on Halloween. Hadid dressed up as a sexy Fred Flintstone and visited Los Angeles-based nail artist Kim Truong to get a dark mani for the occasion. But don’t think it’s just a Halloween look. Nope, brown nails are trending like crazy.
Brands like Olive & June, Dior, Zoya and Butter London all rolled out different shades of chocolate—some more milk than dark. Truong mixed two hues for Hadid’s almond-shaped talons: Kiara Sky Nails Haute Chocolate layered over Back to Black. It’s a shade that’ll look great on all skin tones, especially considering you can add more or less of each shade to go lighter or darker as your heart desires.
But if you don’t have Truong on speed dial, don’t worry. Shop some of our favorite brown polishes, below.
