When I think A/W nails (aside from your classic Christmas glitters), I think of a subdued, muted colour palette. It can vary from pastels to nudes to darks, but I avoid brights and neons! I don't want to make this most three miles long so I won't go through all eight of my seasonal polish picks in detail, but I've listed them all below along with a quick shade/formula summary.
Essie Wicked // An opaque, glossy, almost black reddish berry.
Essie Maximillian Strasse-Her // An opaque, kind of shiny, subdued grey-mint.
Essie Midnight Cami // An opaque deep navy blue with royal blue pearlescence (it actually works, surprisingly)
Nails Inc. The Thames // An opaque, semi-matte dark grey.
Nails Inc. Porchester Square // An opaque, kind of shiny taupe/mushroom nude. Honestly it looks a bit meh with my skin tone, but others love it!
Topshop Crystal Clouds // A metallic champagney gold/silver (the perfect accent nail!)
Topshop Arabesque // A sheer, shiny, pale milky-coffee nude.
Some serious self-restraint went into cutting down the number of Essies to just three! *pats self on back*
What are your favourite nail colours for Autumn/Fall? Or Spring in the Southern hemisphere? (not jealous of your weather down under, definitely not jealous at all)
