With the chill of fall and the scent of pumpkin spiced lattes swirling in the air, there’s an inherent desire to cozy up in chunky knits, light a comforting candle, and perhaps binge watch some horror shows at home.
In the world of fleeting TikTok trends, “cherry mocha” nails are on the rise, with countless videos and over three million views on the #CherryMochaNails hashtag (and counting).
What Are Cherry Mocha Nails?
“Cherry mocha” is a buzzy way of describing burgundy nails that are rich in pigment and feature that cherry-inspired undertone.
“There is something so quintessentially ‘fall’ about a crisp red manicure,” says Rita Remark, Essie’s global lead educator and manicurist to celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Meghan Markle, and more. “Every year comes with its own variation, and this year, it’s a deeper, brown-toned red.”
In light of the “cherry coke” hair hues, “cherry cola lips,” and cherry-scented perfume obsessions that have already begun creeping in, it’s clear that the decadently juicy fruit is truly having its main character moment. “Some beauty trends start to bleed out across mediums and this is a perfect example of that,” notes Remark.
