I’m sure most people agree that as the colder weather sets in and the darker evenings draw in our wardrobes adapt seamlessly; well so does my taste in nail polish colours. I just love wearing a warmer, darker colour on my nails during the autumn/winter months so in this post I will show you some of my favourite picks.
The first one is by No7 and this isn’t a brand I would automatically look for when shopping for nail varnish but this is such a brilliant product for the £6.00 price! I have the colour Totally Teal but I think they have renamed it because Cruising looks exactly the same! One of the reasons I love this so much is the colour, it breaks it up from the various reds and maroon colours and lasts so well on my nails and have a beautiful texture.
The next one is by Ciate in the shade Dangerous Affair and if this isn’t an autumn colour the I don’t know what is! It’s the perfect deep burgundy/purple and as with all Ciate nail varnishes this applies really beautifully and has decent lasting power although not at good as the No7 Stay Perfect ones.
Barry M is pretty much in everyone’s and their mums nail polish collection so it’s no surprise that this one has made it into my top 5 during this season. It’s the shade Dark Side of the ‘Shroom which is absolutely stunning! The only way I can describe it is like a muddle purple but this lasts so well on my nails and doesn’t chip horribly and crumbly like some do. This is definitely one of the ones I’ve worn the most the past few weeks.
Next up is Relentless Ruby by O.P.I and this is such a lovely ruby, berry colour that matches almost half my wardrobe right now. It adds such a lovely hint of colour to an all black outfit (which I wear quite a lot). I have a mini of this but should probably have the full size!
Lastly, is one by Avon which is so underrated because I have yet to be disappointed by any of their products! This one is in Red Velvet and the quality of this is so good especially for the price. This deep red with a slight shimmer running through it stays on my nails so well and the shine it gives is literally the best. The only thing I would say about this is the applicator brush is quite big so does make it a little bit difficult but not the end of the world!
So that’s a round up of my top 5 nail varnishes for the autumn season. I have been loving all of these so much so far… are there any I need to try?!
