Autumn NailsThursday, October 09, 2014
So seeing as it's now October and I went and bought tights the other day. Autumn is officially here. I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty happy as I always love A/W clothing and this year I have not held back with buying a few new additions to my wardrobe #whoops. With this in mind, not only am I digging out my boots and scarves but some of my beauty routine has changed too. Especially when it comes to my nails. Throughout spring and Summer, I wore pastels and neon's on my nails, but that seems a bit wrong when it's blowing a gale outside and raining a monsoon.
With this in mind, my nail collection has taken a u-turn and long gone as the mint candy apples and baby pinks, and in their place are moody greys, and blackcurrant purples. I've been loving nail polishes from a variety of brands this season so far, from Barry M's new additions to their Gelly and Nail Paint line up, with Nightshade a dark moody purple, and Chai a cool toned grey, have been perfect for autumnal colours but on a budget. Cocoa is a rich, warm brown that will be perfect for around bonfire night. It will look perfect on your nails whilst your hands are wrapped around a mug of hot chocolate. What I will say is, invest in a good top coat as these chip quite easily! I've also been loving this shade by Mavala, who's nail polish I've never actually used before but comes in the most dinky bottles. I like to hold them and pretend I'm a giant. Ha you'd never know I was 23 would you? Montevideo is a raspberry red that I actually have on my nails right now and is one of those shades that doesn't look much in the bottle but once applied is actually really flattering and perfect for autumn!
These are the shades I'll be using on rotation throughout out Autumn/Winter but I'm sure there may be a few new additions added not before too long! What's your favourite Autumn/Winter nail shade?
