Autumn Nails

So Autumn/winter is probably my favourite time of year, i just love to snuggle in front of the fire with my PJ'S and hot choc! Another reason for a/w being my favourite time of year is my love for dark colours such as purples and reds. So therefore ive picked out my favourite nail polishes ill be sure to wear throughout autumn and winter.

17 Mini Polish - True Red ... I got this nail polish in one of 17's christmas collection gift sets and i love it! Its great for adding a pop of colour to the nails.
No7 Stay Perfect - Betty Blues ... I Love No7 nail polish i always think they have a great selection of colours and i especially like the darker range of colours they do, Betty Blues however is a navy blue with a noticeable shimmer that perfect festive colour.
Maybelline Salon Expert - Bitten Plum ... This is the only Maybelline nail polish that i own however i defiantly want to try more as i only purchased this a couple of weeks back. It stays on forever, with only minimal chipping and the colour is a beautiful red toned plum. 
Gosh - Miss Mole ... I was looking for the perfect chocolate/nude shade of polish in what feels like forever and i think ive found that perfect "go to" shade in Gosh's Miss Mole (only sold through Superdrug).
MUA - Shade 3 ... I picked this up a good year or so ago so im surprised it hasn't gone gloopy and hard to use. The only downside to MUA polishes is that they don't have names just shade numbers so the best way to describe it would be a medium shade of purple with no glitter or shimmer. Something that can be worn for any occasion or season.
No7 Stay Perfect - Rose Truffle ... I LOVE this colour its a gorgeous "wine" red colour that is darker on the nails than it looks in the bottle. To me its my all time favourite No7 nail polish.
17 Mini Polish - Bronze/Gold ... This is going to be great over the christmas period as its a great dark gold/light bronzed colour and would go with any outfit. Im not normally one for metallic polishes but i think this one is just lovely not two in your face.
