In a few weeks (less than two!), autumn will be rolling in with a whirlwind of brown-golden leaves and the smell of crisp forest walks. Yes, autumn is my absolute favourite season of them all. So in honour of that I thought I'd do soms autumn-oriented posts. First of all: Autumn nailpolishes!
I've chosen the polishes mainly for their colour, the kind of autumn-y mood they put me in. I have to say, I do not only wear these during autumn, I rock them all year 'round! I just wanted to make a selection of the colours that screamed 'autumn' to me.
(side note: I have terrible nails, nailpolishes don't stay as long on my nails as on 'normal' people's nails because mine are so brittle)
I love this colour because it's just a very dark, brown-toned red.It's literally autumn on your nails. The formula is really nice as well, I have two to three days of full, non-chip wear with them. It's a rather 'edgy' nail polish, and I imagine it being my most worn one for the next few months. I love me a dark nail polish.
A really nice touch to this nail polish, is the fact that it smells like candy. When I first bought it I thought it would smell like wine (because of it's name and colour), but I've learned a lot since then.
I can't say a lot about the wear, because I have only worn it once, but it already survived two days before I wanted to switch to another colour. I've got nail polish commitment issues...
Formula-wise, it's alright, if you keep in mind the state of my nails. Yes, they chip more easily than an essie nail polish, but it's still nice for it's price! Freestyle poetry aside, I really like it.
It applies heavenly, only one coat needed, and stays on my nails for at least three to four days! I bet it stays for over a week when your nails are in good condition... I think this will be a personal favorite for a very long time.
It's a taupe-ish grey colour, which is just perfect for my more humble side. In autumn, I'm never really in the mood to wear light, pastel nail colours and at times like that (and I,again, don't want a dark look on my nails that day) I like to bust this one out.
The formula is the same as the other essie nail polish, two to three days non-chip!
Do you have a certain favorite autumn nail polish? Care to share?
I really have to try and stop being so 'poetic'...
