I don't know about you but when it comes to nail polish I try to hang onto my Summer brights for as long as possible and since we were lucky enough to have that bit of Indian Summer not too long ago they stuck around for that bit longer than usual! I tend to ease myself into the new season gradually (and somewhat reluctantly since I'm a proper 'Summer lover'!) moving onto neutral polishes, and eventually the deeps! Of course, you can obviously wear whatever the hell you want on your nails throughout any season and depending on your mood but this is just how I tend to roll ... generally!
So here's what I've picked out from my current stash - different depths here but I consider all these to be in the 'neutral zone' ...
From left to right...
Nails Inc - Basil Street
Maybelline Forever Strong - Taupe Couture
Leighton Denny - Supermodel
Barry M Matte Nail Paint - Mocha
M&S Limited Collection Nail Polish - Putty
And here they are on ... as always a rushed paint job (on a Sunday and I had to get a chicken in the oven shortly after - as you do!) ... but you get the general picture ...
Basil Street is the palest and reminds me of Baileys Irish Cream - usually need three coats with this one. Haven't used Taupe Couture for ages and it's a deeper shade than I remembered but still has that flat brown/neutral vibe. Supermodel is quite new and one of the thinnest polishes I've tried but very easy to apply. Mocha is unfortunately the least long lasting but I still love the matte effect. Putty is my newest edition (you can see my NOTD here).
Must invest in a couple of those 'nail wheel' contraptions I know some of you use for these types of posts - would certainly make things easier when there's a Sunday dinner to cook!
What are your favourite Autumn nail polishes? Do you cross over with neutrals or dip straight into the deeps?
