Want your hands to be as fashionable as your handbag this season? Then you need a mani makeover.

But that doesn't mean expensive salon appointments - the AW18 catwalks gave us plenty of gorgeous nail looks that are easy to recreate at home using polish that costs as little as a fiver. From juicy brights to mesmerising metallics, these designs will have your fingertips looking fabulous in no time. Here are three awesome autumn updates to try now...

1. Bright tips: At Palmer//Harding's London Fashion Week show, lead nail technician Karen Louise said she was, "updating the classic French manicure with a more playful spin, incorporating diagonal lines with pops of colour."

To create the look, start with a nude base then paint across your nail tips with deep blue or bright red. You don't have to be super-neat with your lines, it's about a fun flash of colour, not precision nail art.

2. Juicy pink: "The brief was to create sheer neon pink, so we custom-blended a few drops of hot pink with with a top coat to achieve a translucent 'juicy' effect," explains Robbie Tomkins backstage at the Alice Archer show. We wanted the nails to also tie in with the striking red shading used in the make-up look."

Try creating your own juicy hue by mixing a bright pink, red or orange shade with top coat for a super-shiny finish.

3. Metallic mix: At Paul Costelloe, nail technician Sophia Stylianou created a marbled metallic effect that's surprisingly easy to achieve at home. Start with two coats navy or deep brown, then take a pearlescent silver, wipe off the brush until there's only a minimal amount of polish left and swipe in a criss-cross motion across the nail.
