(L-R: Rimmel 60 Seconds 210 Ethereal; Essie Sand Tropez; Deborah Lippmann Razzle Dazzle; Essie Bahama Mama; Barry M Peach Melba; Barry M Black Multi Glitter; Barry M Colbalt Blue.)
For me, the greatest Autumn nail polishes go one of two ways. The first is darker colours to match the darker nights and the second is lighter colours for a splash of colour to spruce up that big soft jumper you just have to wear to lectures.
The basic soft pink that is the Rimmel polish, the lovely nude that is Essie's Sand Tropez and every bloggers favourite Barry M's Peach Melba have been firm favourites on my nails for the last week, and as we start October I can't see that changing. They make your nails look undeniably pretty as they peak out of your coat sleeves.
Essie's Bahama Mama is a lovely deep red with purple undertones that can make any dress look glam for a night out no matter how thick those tights are. Barry M's Colbalt Blue is a bold, dark blue colour that adds a little splash of electricity to any moment.
And finally, who can resist a splash of glitter? It's getting into the biggest party season of the year and there's no excuse not to sparkle. Deborah Lippmann Razzle Dazzle (a firm favourite from an old glossybox) and Barry M's Black Multi Glitter look fabulous dashed over another colour or layered firmly.
What are your favourite Autumn nail polishes? Happy October!
