Top 5: Autumn Nail Polishes

Now that there is officially a chill in the air, I'm reluctantly gathering up my pink and coral polishes ready for their hibernation until next Summer. In replacement, I'm bringing out the Autumn shades, five of which I know I'll be rotating regularly over the next couple of months, some oldies, some newbies..

 The most recent addition to my collection is Chanel Le Vernes in Frenzy, one of three in their Autumn range (and the first to my collection may I add!). In the bottle it looks the perfect shade of 'greige', although it pulls through lilac tones once applied on the nails. The comments about the durability have made me steer clear of these polishes before and I have to say after the first day, the edges started to wear, after three, the chipping began, but I'm willing to forgive it because it really is too beautiful to resist. Then there's China Glaze Winter Berry, the name may relate to next season but I find myself time after time reaching for a classic red this time of year, it's so elegant. Bourjois 1 Seconde Gel polish in Beige Distinction isn't anything out of the ordinary, but a nude beige is pretty standard and this works really well with my skin tone. I only discovered Essie Angora Cardi earlier this year, but every time I saw swatches of it, it never failed to amaze me. It's described as a 'deep dusty rose' and I think it sums up Autumn in a bottle so well! Last but not least, how could I not include OPI Lincoln Park After Dark as one of my top five? This is OPI's best selling nail polish, loved by celebs such as Twiggy and Micha Barton. It's a solid midnight purple, which isn't only ideal for Autumn but the perfect transition colour into Winter as well. 

I'd love to know what colours will be adorning your nails this Autumn! There might just be a few more need adding to my collection, any excuse, eh?!


  1. Thank you *so* much for this post!! I wore Angora Cardi to my brother's wedding earlier this year, and when I was getting my nails done, for some reason I never got the name of the polish! I have been hunting and huntingever since for it and now, you've found it for me!!

    Thank you

  2. OPI Lincoln Park After Dark is definitely one of my favorites, too :) I never get bored of it! The chanel polish looks gorgeous as well!! pretty nails by the way :) xx

  3. I want to add angora cardi to my list now. I love Lincoln park after dark and midnight. Frenzy I want but keep debating about it.


    1. Frenzy is stunning, I honestly can't stop staring at it when it's on my nails - I recommend it :-) xx

  4. OPI Lincoln Park After Dark is one of my all time favourites, I love wearing it every winter. I think I might have to add angora cardi to my wishlist its a lovely colour :-)
