Autumn Nails shades 2018

I'm often in denial when it comes to the seasons, I love Summer so much I just don't like to admit to myself that it's getting colder. I refuse to turn the heating on til at least late November. 


Up til now I was still rocking the pastels on my nails but while looking for a new shade to replace my pale lilac I actually got rather excited (as excited as one can get over a nail shade) about reaching for some Autumnal shades.

I couldn't decide on just one so I opted for a selection to create my Autumn Nails look. 


Essie are the real champions here, they do neutrals better than most and have some lovely shades that are perfect for this time of year. 

On my little finger I have Essie 'Chinchilly' which is an oldie but a goodie. Such a lovely grey shade that transitions from Summer to Autumn perfectly.

Next to it is Essie 'Knee High Life' a gorgeous pink toned red  and my middle finger is Essie 'Suit and Tied'  a caramel shade from Essie Winter collection which was released at the end of last year.


I added a bit of sparkle to my index finger using Barry M Bronze Bag from their Molten Metal collection - this one is great as it only really needs one coat and you get such a great look. A lot of shades like this need a lot of building up. Plus Barry M polishes are only £3.99 - you can't go wrong!

My thumb has Nails Inc Queen Street although I now notice that isn't really shown in the pics! But it's a pale nude shade which works in any season. 

It won't be long before I really turn to the dark side and go for the deep navy shades that I love so much in winter but this little selection is going to keep me going for the next month or so.
