I love autumnal shades. I know, I know, I’m strictly a brights kinda girl on a day to day basis, but every year there’s something about the dark warm tones that really grabs me. Even the more cool toned nudes get a thumbs up from me as the weather becomes increasingly cooler and grey.
You may notice that the shades in the back row are some of my favourites from last year, I still love them now. However the front row of polishes (okay the front two – Chanel rose confidential has been hanging round for a long time!) are the new kids in town.
First up is Thorn by Topshop, I am totally in love with this colour as its not only a perfect autumnal shade, but fits occasions like Halloween and Christmas. Day or night, there’s no where this wont fit in, and it survives a good few rounds of washing up without a topcoat. Winner.
Next up is Luxedo by Essie, available in the diffusion line, this is an amazing Halloween shade, and although the formulas a tad sketchy, it’s the perfect autumn alternative to a standard black.
Chanel Rose Confidential is a beautiful muted pink, perfect for the days where nudes and darker shades just don’t tickle your fancy. Another crummy formula, this needs a base and top coat and will not withstand the washing up!
It’s safe to say I have a pretty sound collection here, but I feel like something’s missing. I won’t lie, Chanels latest releases are drawing me in, but let me know if you think there’s something else out there for me!
