I was rifling through my boxes of nail varnish the other day, looking for an Autumnal shade to wear and I just couldn't decide which one to use. I pulled out the nail varnishes I was most drawn to and this post was born. So without further ado, I introduce my 5 nail picks for Autumn...
Left to Right: China Glaze - Harvest Moon / Maybelline - Divine Wine / China Glaze - Dress Me Up /
Essie - Warm and Toasty Turtleneck / Essie - Parka Perfect
China Glaze - Harvest Moon
I adore this unique shade, described as a "luxurious metallic copper", which was inspired by District 9 from The Hunger Games. Every time I look it at it I can't help but think of beautiful orange Autumn leaves on a woodland walk!
My favourite colour in Autumn is, well, anything with a berry hue! One of the nicest shades I've come across is Divine Wine, which is a mid toned berry that is vibrant and rich in colour with a gorgeous glossy finish.
If you're loving the 90s nude lip trend at the moment, then this is the perfect nail shade to co-ordinate with your lips. Dress Me Up is a brown toned, dusky pink, but the pink is so muted it borders on the nude category. This shade was also inspired by The Hunger Games - this time District 8.
I only recently bought the Essie polishes in this post (and for a bargain too from Fragrance Direct - clickable link above), the first one being this lovely lavender shade. I love picking up these muted kind of colours - I always think of it as just one step down from my adored summer brights, so you still get a strong, deep colour, just toned down a little.
Although some people see it as quite a boring colour, grey is one of my favourites as I think it suits my pale skin and blonde hair. This is possibly one of the nicest grey nail shades ever - blue toned with a delicate shimmer running through it. Love love love!
Which of my Autumn nail picks is your favourite? What are your favourite nail shades for this time of year?
