Well with verification from Google that today is the first day of autumn it seemed only fitting that this post should go live tonight. As we have already established over the last few weeks autumn is my favourite season therefore I've a few polishes that would fit the bill nicely however I decided to choose my current favourite five that I'll have on rotation in the not so distant future.
First up I've picked out Barry M Red Black which my sister picked up for me after I saw it mentioned on Sophie's blog last year. In the image above it looks a lot lighter than it does on the nails whereby in fact it really is quite an inky black which if in the right light you are able to see the red coming through. Keeping with Barry M for the moment my all-time favourite polish sneaks in. Raspberry is such a beautiful deep toned red that looks stunning at this time of year.
Models Own rarely features on my blog however their shade Purple Grey was one that caught my eye last year and if I'm honest is one that I had forgotten about until I was rooting through my nail polish box a few days ago. I'm not entirely sure why this polish had slipped my mind as it really is lovely on and has a fantastic formula to boot.
A few months ago there was a free Nails Inc polish within InStyle magazine so naturally I picked it up. Sao Paulo Streets is a beautiful creamy off white shade that looks stunning on the nails, it is however not very forgiving and highlights any scruffiness around the nails therefore it's one I save for good nail days.
Back to Barry M their Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Polish in Plum has been a favourite of mine ever since I picked it up. For me this formula works generally very well on my nails although I'm aware that some do struggle with it. It's hard to beat a genuine deep purple toned nail polish in autumn, it's a classic.
Of course nail polishes from an array of different brands work on everybody differently, I only have to think of Essie here as a prime example. These polishes are generally all quite good for me in terms of longevity with Barry M for me being some of the best out there.
