Autumn Nail polish.

So the small minority of you that follow my blog will probably have been wandering what has happened to me?  Well the truthful answer is that I broke my camera.  Just after my weekend post I broke the focus on my main lens so I have been unable to take any product photos and as I refuse to use stock photo's, I'm afraid there have been no reviews.  Sorry about that, but now I have managed to somehow fix it but I am having to try manual-focus on my photos so bare with me if they are a little un-clear.

However, we are now well into Autumn territory, the rain is starting and all of the leaves are falling, secretly I am loving it.  There is just something about snuggling up in knitted jumpers and cosy socks with a cup of tea or hot chocolate while it's raining outside.
Anyway, after a summer of brights and neon nails, here are some of my favourite nail polishes for the autumn.

Avon nailwear pro - midnight plum

 Models own - in the navy

When it comes to autumn nail polish I tend to think of warm and dark colours, and 'midnight plum' is the ultimate colour.  It's a flat colour (meaning it has no shimmer or undertones), and is basically a warm, deep purple.  It doesn't have amazing staying power as it is a cheaper polish but personally I think everyone should have one of these in their collection. 
'In the navy' doesn't come under the 'warm' category because it is a blue but I still think it's really wearable in autumn.  It is what it says on the tin; a navy shade. I find this actually lasts for a pretty long time but it defiantly needs a couple of coats to make the colour strong because it's a bit watery.
This glittery gold/copper polish is not one I would wear everyday because I don't have the patience, but for a night out I think this is gorgeous.  The polish is quite thin and defiantly needs a few coats but I love the effect, I don't know, the glitter reminds me of autumn leaves.  Sorry, I haven't found a polish quite like this that is available to buy yet, but I am searching!
Sometimes I feel like toning down my nails a bit, and I always turn to 'perfect nude'.  I am still not sure how much I like this polish yet but it seems to work quite well with my fading tan and I love to switch up my darks sometimes.  This one has pretty good staying power, however after a couple of days it will have chipped and defiantly needs replacing after a week.
This last shade is hands-down my favourite!  It's so hard to describe, a sort of deep brown/red colour with tiny red shimmery bits in it.  I got this in a big set of polishes for Christmas a couple of years back but I threw away the packaging before I even knew the brand so I have no idea where to get this or anything like it.  I am desperately searching for a dupe so if anyone knows of one, please let me know!

I hope you enjoyed reading, I would love to hear about your favourite polishes, the Barry M Gelly polish in 'dark green' is next on my wishlist!
