Recently I have been completely falling in love with darker, more Autumnal nail varnishes. I can definitely say my summer pastels and brights have been pushed well to the side for these ones. So without further ado, here are my top five favourites for this lovely time of year:

You can probably notice a brand that I obviously love a lot for nail varnishes... Yes good old Barry M seems to have taken over my Autumn nail varnish favourites. What can I say? They are all lovely colours, with good lasting time and a cheap price tag. Sounds pretty perfect if you ask me! I also included one of my recent purchases, which happens to be an OPI polish. Here is a quick description of each nail varnish:
Barry M Matte Nail Paint in Crush
If you have read my blog before you have probably came across my review post of this amazing polish (you can read it here if you haven't). It is a beautiful dark, burgundy red colour and I surprisingly love the matte finish it leaves. It goes on perfectly and lasts well with a base and a top coat.
Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Watermelon
I have had this polish for quite a while now but I didn't really use it much until now. This colour is a really dark green with some definite blue undertones. It leaves a lovely shine on your nails as well so if you didnt have time for a top coat it wouldn't be a disaster. It applies really well and lasts a really long time on my nails with very minimal chipping.
Barry M Nail Paint in Raspberry
As far as I know this is quite a popular one. I have only wore it a handful of times but I honestly love it. I would say this polish is a pinky red colour but it is much more red than pink. This colour will be even more lovely nearer the Christmas season. (Same application and lasting time as other Barry M Nail Paints)
OPI Nail Lacquer in Suzi Takes the Wheel
I really like this colour especially because I have nothing like it in my collection. It is a lovely muted, light grey and is just the most perfect transition colour from Summer to Autumn. I think it works so well because it is still a light colour but it's quite dull instead of bright. This polish goes onto the nails like a dream but I would say definitely use a top coat.

Barry M Nail Paint in Berry Cosmo
This nail varnish is a very dark purple and the colour is just ideal. I've always had a thing for dark purple nail varnishes but this one is my most favourite. (Same application and lasting time as other Barry M Nail Paints)
I hope you enjoyed reading about my favourite Autumn nail varnishes.
Have a lovely day!
