Autumn Inspired Nails
Ahh hello autumn! One of my favourite seasons of the year! As the skies get greyer and the leaves turn brown, welcome in the new season by swapping your bright summer polishes for richer shades and darker tones.
Personally, I’m a huge fan of deep vampy reds, burnt oranges and different shades of brown and even black, so here are a few ideas that will guide you to pulling off fabulous autumn inspired nails.
Here we have top model, Kendall Jenner wearing Chanel 219- Black Satin. Such a deep and dark colour is perfect for the autumn season. This particular nail polish retails for around £16- £18. However, if this is too pricey I have found a number of alternatives at more pocket friendly prices.
Barry M has a similar shade of nail paint to Chanel with the same dark, rich and glossy finish. This retails at your local Boots or Superdrug for just £4.99! Result!
As you may have noticed, I always mention Barry M within my articles but only because their colours are amazing and let’s face it, so are their prices! These awesome matte nail paints above definitely vary, but are all equally attractive for this season.
In 2012, Butter London launched their Lippy Autumn/ Winter Collection, which partnered nail lacquer shades with matching lip glosses! My personal favourite would have to be the La Moss nail lacquer. This gorgeous vampy red reminds me of the dark and beautiful scenes in London’s Hyde Park during autumn.
Tea with the Queen nail lacquer, which is almost nude would be an ideal solution for those who would perhaps rather a lighter and less convicting shade for the season. The best thing about this collection is that it is still available and each nail lacquer is priced between £8- £10!
This wonderfully rich raspberry shade by OPI is striking but is richer than those much loved summer pinks. In fact, it’s perfect for that transitional time when you’re getting cosier and dressing for the colder weather.
So, I know I’ve been focused on the beautiful oranges, reds and browns but truth be told, autumn isn’t solely about these shades, it’s about the array of colours associated with the season, like the fallen leaves outside and those evenings spent at home around a warm fireplace.
I hope these examples and hot picks have been helpful guys, share your thoughts by commenting below. Happy autumn!

I am so intrigued by the Barry M Matte shades! I have never really considered a matte nail varnish, but these look really great on the nails, .. must try asap!
Love the selection of Autumnal tones – always a great time of year for the dark reds, blacks, plums, and so on.
OPI has always been my favourite, but I’d love to diversify a bit and find some new favourites. I haven’t actually tried Butter yet.
RE – the Barry M Matte, I’m not sure if I like it or not. It looks chalky.
