Autumn Nail Varnish Haul

Ever since the temperature dropped, I have been obsessing over autumnal and wintry colours, desperate to get some more muted, moody hues into my life. Since I haven't had any time to go clothes shopping yet, I have indulged in my obsession by buying some new nail varnishes for the Autumn/Winter season. Oh boy, are these beauts!


First of all I picked up four OPI nail varnishes from Fragrance Direct, which are just £3.99 each instead of the usual £13.95. I have never tried OPI before, so I am very excited about having some in my nail varnish collection! All of the shades available on Fragrance Direct seem to be from previously released collections and at the moment there is a huge selection of shades to choose from! I picked up Color To Diner For (cranberry red with a light red shimmer), Diva Of Geneva (a metallic, pink toned purple), Dutcha Just Love OPI (a deep purple with a light gold shimmer) and I Have A Herring Problem (a green toned blue with a light silver shimmer).

I also did a cheeky online Boots order so I could get my hands on Models Own Obsidian from the Velvet Goth Collection. The base colour is black but the nail varnish is packed full of different size silver glitter particles. This would look amazing with a LBD at Christmas! 

When I picked up my Boots order from the store, I also used my £3.00 No7 voucher and bought the No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour in Thunderstorm. This is a deep, purple toned, stormy grey, which I think is perfect if you want a nail varnish that isn't too dark as it has a lovely hint of colour.


I can't wait to get all of these on my nails, the problem is... where do I start??!!

Have you been buying any nail varnishes for the coming cold season?
