Autumn nail shades


I love Autumn! It’s my favourite time of year in terms of fashion and make up, I just love the darker tones and will take any excuse to wear loads of black. These are some of my favourite Autumnal nail polishes.

I love OPI and it seems to dominate my nail polish collection. I think that’s because when I get my nails done they always use OPI so I get inspired and buy the non gel versions for at home.

The first three of these polishes are actually from the OPI Nordic collection which coincidentally came out around the time I was going to Norway, much to my excitement. I knew I had to get them so picked them up in Duty Free on my way out there.

You can’t go wrong with black nails. I love these dark shades for Autumn and a bit of glitter. From left to right:

I really like a nude nail varnish too so like these warmer neutral shades.

My obsession with this burgundy colour is no secret this A/W, I’m particularly enjoying  these two shades at the moment.

These are my go-to shades at the moment but I’m always on the look out for others which will compliment my Autumnal colour palette.

    Those nude colours are beaut & that MAC red, oh my lordy! I’ve never tried a MAC varnish, do you recommend them? I love OPI and they’re my favourite “high end”.

      I would, they’re actually really good. I’ve had that red on for a few days and it still hasn’t chipped which is unheard of for me. Same here! I always get a few new ones when I pass through Duty Free or they put out a new collection which catches my eye x

    My favorite polish in general is Essie, and for autumn I love Sole Mate.

    I haven’t been wearing non-gel polish for as long as I can remember but these shades are stunning. I agree you can’t go wrong with a black or nude nail πŸ™‚ x

    • Amy

      I love gel nails but don’t get around to getting them done regularly so tend to use these in-between, wish I could do it all the time. πŸ™‚ x

      • Rachel Stinson

        I do my own gel nails as I bought my own lamp and kit I did a post on my blog and you should check it out πŸ™‚ so worth it πŸ™‚ x

    Ooh, My Voice is a Little Norse is lovely – I adore silvery glitters! I’m currently rocking Illamasqua’s Viridian, a really deep mermaidy bluey green. Jewel tones are my jam.

  • May Cho

    Ahh, I love OPI nail polishes, and I’ve been meaning to get Lady in Black! It’s hard saying where I’d wear them, though, since I do work corporately, haha. Lovely picks, Amy!
