As soon as I spot Autumn on the horizon, I get digging out the darker, vampier polish shades in my collection. Throughout S/S I'm firmly attached to my pastel and peachy shades, so they actually make a welcome appearance. I've actually been changing my nails every couple of days, and I've got my eye on a few more to add to my little collection.
I think I have to start with my all-time favourite, which is Nails Inc Hampstead Heath. This is such a gorgeous berry with a plum-red undertone. As you would expect from Nails Inc, the wear time is fantastic, meaning this is on my nails throughout the most of Autumn. One I picked up last year as a magazine freebie from them is Fashion Fawn; I'd describe this as a pretty ugly shade, but for some reason I just love the tone, and think it looks quite effortless and chic on the nails. I'm sad to see both of these are now discontinued, so I'll have to be finding new favourites once they've gone.
Another gorgeous berry is from the Avon Nailwear Pro+ range, in the shade 'tweed', This appears so dark in the bottle, but when on the nails a beautiful burgundy red tone shines through. It's not the most long-lasting and usually chips within a day or two, but with a good topcoat on hand I can make it last longer. And two from Topshop always make my favourites; before these came along I was on the hunt for the perfect grey polish but always found them so streaky. 'Cloud' and 'Sketch' have changed all that, and definitely make my top 5 Autumn polishes.
