The Autumn Nail Edit 

Today I’m talking Nails! Autumn nail colours to be precise. I have always loved doing my nails, and back when I was 16 I used to practice so many different nail arts. Since then I’ve built up quite a collection of nail varnishes so I wanted to share with you some of my favourite colours and picks for Autumn which won’t break the bank either.

So from left to right the shades are:


This is a gorgeous pink berry shade which I have used every autumn winter for 2 years now, it’s a staple in my opinion.


A lovely deep Grey, this shade is probably better for more towards winter but with Halloween coming up you need a few darker shades!


A beautiful Shimmery rose gold, perfect for Autumn and Winter and one of those shades that you just can’t stop staring at your nails when it’s on!


A lovely deep red brown which would go perfect with any Autumn outfit.

IT GIRL – Primark

A gorgeous muted pink. I loved this all through summer and think it’s a great transitional shade.

583 TABOO – Chanel

A beautiful dark purple, with different tones of fine shimmer in. It’s so hard to photograph how beautiful this colour is but in the light you can see all the shades of glitter and it is gorgeous.

CRUSH – Barry M

A third Barry M polish, I just love their polishes a lot. This one is a dark red matte berry shade. I love the fact that it’s matte. I do own a matte top coat that I like to use a lot to make any other shades I have matte, but the fact this one already is just makes it a favourite. It’s so pretty on its own and you can’t beat red for Autumn. It’s on my toes right now!

906 MATTE BLACK – Rimmel

A matte Black shade, I can’t describe it any better than that! This is from a new collection from Rimmel in collaboration with Rita Ora labelled “#Shadesofblack” and I received it free from Influenster. I wanted to feature it because I think it would be great for Halloween nails (which I am planning a post on so stay tuned!). Sometimes black shades aren’t really a true black but this one is and I’m so far loving it.

Here I have swatched all the shades using 2 coats so you can see the shades properly:

I’ve edited the picture to include the shade names on just so it’s a bit easier to see which colour is which here:

So there are 10 shades I’m going to be wearing lots this Autumn! What colours do you like on your nails in Autumn?

    You have some gorgeous autumn inspo’ here. The Chanel sounds amazing. That’s one brand I LOVE but don’t yet own any of the polishes. Your swatch sticks are so good! So useful for your post.

    Loved reading!

    I’m absolutely in love with Taboo and Crush. I’m trying to grow my nails out a bit so I can actually use some nail polish on them x


    The more I hear about Edinburgh the more I want to go. Really hoping that I can plan a trip there soon and I’ll definitely be looking into some of the places that you’ve mentioned! x

    Such gorgeous shades, I love the sound of the Chanel one with the different shades of glitter. The Barry M Molten Metal one looks so stunning for Autumn too!

    xo, Nai
