NOTD - Autumn Loves

Hello beautiful people! So this is not exactly today's nails, it's more the last few weeks and the colours I have been wearing since the weather began to change towards autumn here in the UK.

This is "Mushroom" by Barry M. I picked this up at Superdrug for a mere £2.99! What I love about Barry M Nail Paints is that you really get good value for your money. I applied two coats of this colour plus a top coat and my nails did not chip or show any signs of wear for over a week. The colour is true to what you see in the bottle (see the left photo). I took the right photo with flash but it just washed the colour out completely. "Mushroom" is a great autumn colour and would suit any skin tone and at £2.99 you really can't go wrong!

"Raspberry" is another favourite of mine again by Barry M. The left photo, taken using flash, has completely changed the look of the polish and it appears like a magenta/fuschia pink shade. That's not the case really, it's more of a burgundy red with a hint of pink - much like the photo on the right. Once again I used two coats and a top coat. What I find great about Barry M Nail Paints is I don't have to put up with any streaking or bubbling which I have found in the past with other brands. I love how this looks against my skin tone and I used this on my toenails also.

I love nude colours and "Nude Beige" by Models Own is the perfect colour for me when I feel like wearing something a little more natural looking. The colour is almost exactly what it claims to be - a nude/beige shade, but I find it has slight pink/mauve undertones also. I love how this looks on my nails, it's such an elegant, neutral, classy shade which again, would suit most skin complexions. I wore this on my nails most recently and I got some many comments on it! If you're looking for the perfect flesh coloured nail polish for everyday wear, this is definitely the one to get.

That's it for now, those are my top three autumn shades to wear on my nails - love all of them!

What are your favourite colours to wear during autumn/fall? Would you recommend any other colours/brands for me to try out? I would love to know what you think, so please leave me a comment and share your thoughts!
