1. The Classic.
Rimmel Lasting Finish in 193 Black Cherries
Nothing screams cozy-by-the-fire-sipping-chai-lattes more than the deep cherry red. A super sultry and decadent colour, that at first appears black but when it catches the light throws off the most beautiful deep bruised red.
2. The Functional.
Rimmel 60 Seconds in 803 Man Overboard
There's nothing more wearable than a gorgeous slate grey. As the name of the colour suggests, this is the kind of grey only found in the depths of the highest, windiest seas, conjuring images of stormy weather and.., pirates? In any case, this colour just screams autumn/winter, but also benefits from being a shade that matching with virtually any wardrobe.
3. The neutral.
elf polish in Desert Haze
Sometimes, you need a little neutral in your life. Yes, even in the burnt orange, oxblood, magenta haze that is autumn, Imagine: trench coat, dark blue jeans, heeled boots, claret red scarf, windswept hair and gorgeously neutral nails. Need I say more?
4. The sexy.
Barry M Nail paint in 273 raspberry
What is an autumn nail edit without a sexy red? Well maybe I'm cheating, this is more of a berry, with distinctly deep pink hues, but hey it's still sexy amiright? I do love a classic red, but there's something playful about a berry polish that mixes up the sultry tones we usually see around this time of year.
5. The Wild Card.
Revlon Top Speed in 730 Royal
Woah. I know. Can you say in your face or what? This is such a bold and rich colour, kind of reminds me of primary school poster paint - such a true blue. I love this, though. It's so different and eye catching, this is perfectly matched with a neutral or monochrome wardrobe.
Mix it up...
I decided to add a coat of this elf Matte Finisher polish over top to show how these polishes looked toned down. I love this matte top coat - when I first bought it I was obsessed with putting on top of everything! I especially love it over that neutral shade, and if you wanted to tone down that electric blue this would be perfect!
