I realise I’m a little late in doing an autumn nail varnish post being that it’s almost winter, but I really wanted to do this post so here it is. I’m the kind of person who can’t not have their nails painted, and I love changing up my shades depending on the season. I’ve tried to not include too many berry shades in this list – but they’re so perfect for autumn that I couldn’t help including a few! Without further ado, here are my favourite nail shades for autumn.
BARRY M MATTE NAIL PAINT IN ‘CRUSH’
This nail polish is a total staple for me during autumn. It’s the most perfect burgundy shade, plus the matte finish makes this so great for this time of year. I also sometimes like to apply a shiny top coat over this if I’m not really feeling the matte look that day, so it’s definitely a versatile polish.
NAILS INC NAIL POLISH IN ‘SLOANE MEWS’
Nails Inc. do my absolute favourite nail polishes, and this is probably the one I wear most during autumn. It’s a very deep plum shade (it’s even darker than it looks in the photo) and it’s so beautifully vampy. This is the kind of shade that would look amazing on every skin tone, and the formula is incredible too, I definitely recommend it for this time of year.
BARRY M GELLY HI-SHINE NAIL PAINT IN ‘WATERMELON’
This is easily one of the prettiest shades of nail polish that I own, and it’s so amazing for autumn. It’s a stunning peacock-blue/teal shade that is so unique for a nail polish, and it has an insanely glossy finish. This is another polish that would look gorgeous on every skin tone – you definitely need it in your life.
EVE SNOW LONDON NAIL LACQUER IN ‘BIRTHDAY SUIT’
It’s always important to have a perfect, seasonal nude, and this is definitely the best I’ve found for autumn. It’s a very cool-toned taupe-nude that pairs well with everything, and is perfect if you don’t love dark or vampy shades. This nail polish also includes argan oil, ginkgo biloba and vitamin E, so it’s good for your nails too!
ESSIE NAIL LACQUER IN ‘ANGORA CARDI’
This is another of my staple polishes for autumn, it’s just such a unique shade. The best way to describe it is as a muted, pastel burgundy – it’s truly stunning and looks even more incredibly in person. I definitely think this is the best nail polish for autumn, you seriously need this one if you haven’t got it already.
MODELS OWN NAIL POLISH IN ‘GREY DAY’
I love a muted grey for autumn, and this one is totally amazing. It’s a very true grey that works well with everything, and its cool-tone matches the autumn weather perfectly. It’s also a very pigmented nail polish, you can actually get an opaque application with just one coat.
NAILS INC SPECIAL EFFECT NAIL POLISH IN ‘EXHIBITION ROAD’
The last nail polish on my list is this beautiful, sparkly nail topper. This contains copper and blue glitter that looks beautiful on top of the burgundy or grey shades, and helps to add a little bit of glamour to your nails. There’s actually quite a lot of glitter in this polish, so it’s pretty easy to pack it on and create a very intense, statement nail.
So those are my favourite nail polishes for autumn! I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments what your favourite autumn nail shades are. See you next time,
