So Autumn is well and truly upon us.
We can wave goodbye to whatever summer we had this year, and welcome evenings in front
of the fire with a cup of hot choc, chilly mornings, and chunky knit jumpers :)
I love autumn, and am loving the fashion and colours for the upcoming A/W months.
So I thought today I would share with you some of the nail varnishes I think will
be perfect for us this autumn...
Revlon - Totally Toffee 034
I'm not too sure why but this for me literally screams Autumn!
Its a medium brown shade with hints of orange/red.
Kind of makes me think about toffee apples, mmmmm :)
This polish applies really well, similar to most Revlon's I own.
It gives completely opaque coverage with just 2 coats.
Barry M - Raspberry 273
This is an absolutely gorgeous shade for Autumn.
We all love a splash of red, whether it be a lipstick or nail varnish, and this is it!
Its a very deep red, with hints of purple & brown undertones.
(Unfortunately I just couldn't seem to get the true colours to show for this shade! Sorry)
Barry M never fail to impress me, they apply well and have great colour pay off.
Available from Boots, Superdrug and Barry M for just £2.99.
Accessorize - Pink Spice 35
This makes me think of trees in the autumn months, just as the leaves are turning
an orange/red-brown colour, and when you walk along and they are crunching
under your feet. A little imagination time for you there ;)
I love everything about this polish, the multi tonal colours and the shimmery,
metallic and glitter effect it gives. It applies opaque with as little as one coat too!
You can purchase from Superdrug for £3.45.
Barry M - Cappuccino 341
This is the perfect Nude shade for Autumn in my opinion.
This doesn't sound too appealing but its like a "muddy" brown shade with purple undertones.
I like the name of this shade, who doesn't love a nice hot drink in the cold weather?
Again, this nail paint applies really well, you can easily coat each nail with just one stroke.
You can purchase from Boots, Superdrug & Barry M for just £2.99
(Another shade I will recommend similar to this for autumn is Barry M-Mushroom)
Deborah Lippman - Razzle Dazzle
Excited for CHRISTMAS? I'm not...Yet. But this is the perfect Christmas day nail colour!
Jewels, glitter and all things pretty and sparkly. I love it.
I received this mini bottle in a Glossybox last December.
The polish itself is a sheer black base packed with specks of ruby red glitters.
It does take a fair few coats to get the coverage & colour shown in the photo above.
You can buy full size here for £10.75
