Autumn Edit: Nails

Autumn Edit: Nails

I know it’s not yet officially Autumn in England, but leaves have started falling. So, I thought it was the perfect time to start the Autumn Edit series. You can catch last year’s instalment of Autumn Edit: Nails if you’re looking for more nail colour ideas.

You can, of course, wear whatever nail colour you want any time of the year. But I really like to change things up a bit with the seasons.

Deborah Lippmann

Good Girl Gone Bad

This deep plum shade has been one of my favourites a long while now. I always look forward to wearing it in the Autumn and Winter. It’s a great way to wear shimmer on your nails without the chunky glitter effect.

It’s great short nails, has a great brush and has a matte finish. I prefer it with a super glossy finish and it seems to shimmer more than way. So, I apply the Leighton Denny Crystal Finish Top Coat.

As well as being cruelty-free this polish is also 5-free. Meaning that it doesn’t have some toxic chemicals that others can sometimes have. Such as Toluene, Formaldehyde and Formaldehyde Resin. Also making it more pleasant to use as it doesn’t smell as strongly as some other brands I’ve used.

You can see what it looks like on the nails on… Winter Nails (2015)

Leighton Denny

Lilac Lust

For when I want something a little more subtle. This muted polish reminds me a lot of Butter London’s Muggins but is warmer and a definite lilac. Whereas Muggins leans more towards the blue end of the spectrum.

Leighton Denny’s polishes are very consistent and have a great brush to ease application. Especially if you have small nails like I do.

Last Autumn I loved wearing Miss Behavin. This looks very similar in the bottle but it is more of a rich, deep cobalt colour than Miss Behavin’.

Blue is my favourite colour and metallic looking blues like this are a favourite for the cooler months of the year.  Day or night.

Rampant Rose

This is just what it says on the label. I went to an Alice in Wonderland themed Birthday party recently and this colour reminds me of the scene where they are painting the roses red.


Nails Inc

Grosvenor Crescent

It’s such a dark purple that it borders on black. A super vampy colour on its own or as a base colour. Like for the next polish.

Highly pigmented I only had to apply two coats for an opaque and glossy finish. Although I still like to use a top coat as with any polish to prolong the wear.


Belgrave Square

Part of a Winter Nails trio I bought months ago I’ve been waiting to wear this until now. It’s great over a dark base like the Grosvenor Crescent.

What was great about this from the start was how easy it was to apply the glitter in one coat. Whereas it can take a few tries to get what I want from a glitter top coat.
