"Women think of all colours except the absence of colours. I have said that black has it all," Coco Chanel once famously intoned. From quote to style gospel, there's no denying the allure and bold glamour when it comes to the darkest pigment in the colour spectrum (just ask the Buro team dressed in black 90 per cent of the week). But contrasted with the yin to its yang by using accents of white or nude, that's when black truly shines. And who doesn't love a mysterious lustre that doubles up as gleaming polish to spruce up your nails?

In the spirit of Mademoiselle Coco's love for black, nail art in the form of negative space and creative painting was notably spied on the fingertips of the models during fashion week and fits right in for the fall season. So whether you're a DIY girl or you prefer to kick back at a plush nail spa, here are a handful of chic and casually 'undone' #nailspiration to try out — and dare we say it, might even be apropos for a certain celebration on All Hallows' Eve.
