Rouge Noir Is The Quintessential Autumn Nail Colour

We might be in the middle of autumn, but some of the current nail polish trends are unseasonably sparkly and bright. But along with the pearlescent Champagnebronze gold, and pumpkin-esque shades sweeping Instagram right now, there's one classic autumn shade the pros say is back with a vengeance for 2019: red-wine burgundy.
The shade goes by many names — oxblood, wine, burgundy — but we're most partial to its French pronunciation: rouge noir. In translation, it simple means dark red, and most polishes include blended purple or black undertones to give the shade its vampy vibe. Scroll ahead to find the perfect burgundies, that have been conveniently bottled up with a brush attachment.
