Top Fall Nail Polishes

I think this is the first year that i've really appreciated autumn. I'm actually really liking the change in fashion this year which I don't ever remember noticing before.

So, here are the nail polishes that i've been reaching for recently (when I don't have a set of my trusty Impress Nails on).




Rimmel Wear Max 405 fantasy £3.49ish usually


This was a freebie at the Clothes Show 2 years ago. It's somewhere between a purple and burgundy colour with glitter. This lasts really well chip free and you could even get away with one coat but I prefer two.

  • Value for money rating: 4/5

Barry M 293 Grey £2.99

Barry M has such a good colour selection but I have found myself edging away from them lately as so many of my older polishes have dried up. This one is still going strong and is a good tone this season. It has good staying power after two coats.

  • Value for money rating: 3/5

Topshop Nails Neutral £5

This was a gift and it's a really nice colour but you do need a few coats to build it up. I like my nail colour to be opaque but maybe that's just me.
  • Value for money rating: 3/5

Orly Ruby

I got this minature Orly polish in a Glossybox. I'm not quite sure what price full size Orly nail varnishes retail for but i'm thinking about £9? I love this colour and it's definitely my favourite shade but it chips so bad!

  • Value for money rating: 2/5 :(

Umberto Giannini Navy

This nail varnish came in one of Umberto Giannini's hair gift sets last Christmas. I don't know if they sell cosmetics separately but it's actually a good polish. The colour pay off is really high and it lasts really well but it does stain your nails if you don't use a base coat.


  • Value for money rating: 3.5/5

Do you have any of these?

Top Nail Varnish Picks For Autumn/ Winter

Autumn/ Winter to me means wearing a lot of grey and black with bursts of khaki and burgundy for colour. Literally, if I see anything khaki coloured, i'm in love and now that's transitioned into my nail varnish thanks to last month's Glossybox.  Here are my current go to nail varnishes, although I did place a Boots order on Cyber Monday for some of the Revlon Gel Envy polishes so there could be some additions to this soon!

I actually prefer the regular Nails Inc varnishes over the gel effect ones but I love this burgundy shade. Sally Hansen varnishes have a great

Astrid & Miyu

Astrid and Miyu have become pretty big in the piercing world. I've been fond of their items for a little while but thought they were quite a pricey brand. Although, when I actually had a proper look on their website, I realised there were some reasonable items on there. They are very kindly offering 30% off to NHS staff at the moment so I decided it would be a good time to try a few pieces. I went for a pair of huggies earrings and a pair of studs to wear together.  I have my lobe, upper lobe and left helix pierced. My body doesn't actually respond very well to piercings; I've found the healing time to be long and quite painful. The first time I had my ears pierced at around age 7, I found out I was allergic to gold and had to let them close up. However, once my piercings are healed I find that I can wear gold. I had them re-pierced with titanium at a tattoo shop with belly rings as I don't think titanium was readily available at the time. I remember a dark tatt

Statement Necklaces - NEXT

I have been searching for the perfect statement necklaces for so long without success. I'm a bit too fussy you see. The majority of statement necklaces in the shops are gold and it's rare for me to wear gold jewellery; I much prefer silver! In all the shops i've looked in, there has always been something not quite right: too big, too spiky or the wrong colour. I'd actually given up hunting for one but this morning, I ventured into NEXT. Next isn't somewhere that I usually go into but I was surprised at how many nice things they have and there were definitely a few that I wanted! I couldn't choose between the following two necklaces so treated myself to both! They were quite hard to photograph but i've linked the items so you can check out the stock photos on the NEXT website.
