Top Picks: My Favourite Autumn/Fall Nail Polishes!

I only bought my first nail polishes last spring, infact some of you may remember the special day where I showed my first haul with great excitement. Since then I've become a little obsessed and been trying anything I can get my hands on at a good price. So today I decided to show you some of the beautiful shades I've been loving for Autumn - mostly deep 'smoky' shades, but I added a couple of brights that I think work well for the season for those that want more colour in their life! 

1) MUA Nail Varnish - Shade 8 - Red's are good for everytime of the year, this particular one is slightly deeper and costs just £1, so great for the season!

2) MUA Nail Varnish - I Want U - For me one of the main autumn colours is orange, I think it comes from the trees! This particular one is cream finish bright orange, which would make a great accent nail with taupe nails!

3) Accessorize Nail Polish - Truffle - This is the first nail polish I ever bought and in the bottle it does look a little dull. But actually I really like it for an understated medium taupe coloured nail.

4) Barry M Gelly Nail Paint - Watermelon - Brand new to me, infact I put it on my nails for the first time last night. Love the emerald green colour it has - very much so actually. But unfortunately I've had it peel off of one of my nails already?

5) Essie Nail Polish - Carry On  - Everyone needs a really deep wine coloured nail polish, it's very classic and I always think rather sophisticated as well. This one from Essie ticks the boxes!

6) Barbara Daly Nail Polish - Potion - This is actually a dupe of Carry On by Essie, but ever so slightly lighter and a touch less purple. But you have to study them to notice the differences. So I'm going with dupe!

7) Barbara Daly Nail Polish - Dream - This brand is available in Tesco for those wondering, this particular shade is a really nice deep navy colour with a cream finish!

8) NYC Quick Dry Nail Polish - Chinatown - Oooo finally a colour with a bit of shimmer, can you tell I like cream finishes?! Chinatown is a gunmetal purple shade.

9) ELF Nail Polish - Dark Glitter Purple  - Good old ELF contributing something to the party, this is a very deep purple shade - it looks almost black on the nails. But in the light you can see some really subtle purple and blue shimmer - very pretty. 

Apologies for not putting all these shades on my nails and showing you guys - but could you imagine the state of my nails after doing that! I'm up for requests of particular ones though so do let me know! Thanks for stopping by, Hannah
