Autumnal Nail Polish

Autumn is well and truly here! This is the first post of the season guys so I thought we'd start with something I love to spend time on: nail polish. Here are five seasonal colours, mostly from the high street.

I actually have this colour on my nails right now! It's Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Chilli (£3.99 here). This colour is a blend between red and brown, but I wouldn't call it a 'proper' burgundy. It reminds me of a typical autumn colour, like leaves and chestnuts. And of course it's in the gelly formula that so many love.

So it looks brown in the bottle, but trust me it's not. This is Bourjois So Laque! Ultra Shine in 29 (£5.99 here) and it comes out a deep purple, with a hint of red in the light. Another colour which to me seems typically autumn but I also love the formula of these polishes. They are really glossy and apply well.

The picture doesn't so this polish justice at all. This is the OPI Nail Lacqour in Russian Navy (£8.98 here). I got this from TKMaxx in a set for about £10, I love TKMaxx for bargains like this! The colour is beautiful, a deep purplely blue. Not so typical for this season but I love dark colours when it starts getting cold.

This gorgeous colour is the 17 Magnetized Nail Polish in Green (£5.99 here). This polish is a striking metallic teal, I've never seen another polish like it. And if you're feeling especially fancy you can use the magnet included to create patterns.

This colour is for all you Halloween lovers! It's a lovely sparkly orange which many people have complimented me on in the past. This is a very unique and bold colour but still wearable. It is another Nail Paint by Barry M in Tangerine (£2.99 here).

Lastly a shout out to this genius nail product which I have been relying on heavily these past few months. This is the Bourjois Instant Dry Nail Drops (£5.99 here). You just squeeze the nail drops onto each nail once fully painted, wait a few moments then wash the residue off. They work extremely well, which surprised me for a high street product, but they truly are now an invaluable bit of kit.

What nail colours do you love to wear in Autumn?
