Autumn nail shades

With Autumn upon us I've ditched the summer pastels on my nails and moved on to the berries, greens and burnt reds in my stash. I've been loving getting back into using all these colours and have picked out a few of the favourite ones I've worn over the past few weeks or so.

I didn't intentionally only pick two different formulas but that seems to have been how it worked out. If you've read my posts before then you will know how much I love Essie polishes, the formula is so easy to apply and lasts a decent amount of time with no chipping. I also have a slight obsession with the Barry M Gelly Hi Shines as they are just soooo glossy.

Essie Bahama Mama- a gorgeous berry shade that I always used repeatedly throughout Autumn and Winter every. Single. Year.

Essie Chinchilly- a neutral shade that has a bit of a twist, I can never quite decide if this is a brown, a grey or a nude, in fact I think it sits somewhere in between all three. I love how simple yet chic my nails look with this on.

Essie Angora Cardi- a dusty deep pink thats b-e-a-utiful. I picked this up last Autumn and used it so much, I think this year will be a repeat.

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Watermelon- a deep green with a name that perfectly describes it. I failed getting a picture with it on but still had to mention it.

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Cardamon- yep, another green, green nail polish is my thing regardless of the season. I like this one because its not quite a khaki, its a little more vibrant than that which makes it a little unusual.

Barry M Kelly Hi Shine in Chilli- when don't red nails look good? This time of year these burnt, Autumn leaf shades are just perfect.

What shades do you love on your nails this time of year?
