Step into Autumn with new nails!

Autumn is here once again, and although i don't really want to say au revoir to summer, i know i can no longer flip flop around i need to look towards the chilly future and embrace it! I'm looking forward to all the little things that come with fall, the crispness in the air, layering wooly jumpers and swapping the bright summer clothes and makeup for a moodier color palette. One of the best ways to accent this new fall look, is with a fresh manicure.  SO, my first step into autumn is a change of the nails! Here are my top picks for perfect Autumn nails!  

Models Own - Nude Beige £4.99CND Shellac - CocoaEssie - Urban Jungle £7.99

I normally like to keep my nails very dark in the fall, but I’m all about nudes right now—specifically, nudes that are muddled by a tinge of gray. Essies 'Urban Jungle'  is the perfect combination of a greyish nude its very chic and goes with every outfit! CND is the main nail lacquer I use since I was introduced to it a few years ago, because the colours are always on point and it’s virtually unchippable with amazing staying power. I suspect that my autumn beauty staple will be between Essie Urban jungle  and the brand’s cocoa shade.

Nails inc - Hampstead Heath £11 CND Shellac - Baroness, Nails inc - Broadwick Street £11 CND Shellac - Masquerade
For fall I love a clean neutral or a rich, deep red color.  To me, the darker hue is a classic twist on the traditional red and lends the perfect hint of sexiness to my otherwise understated beauty look, the perfect red  for this fall to me would be Nails inc hampstead heath, I've added their broad wick street too f you like a little shimmer to your red. 

OPI - How great is your dane? £11.95CND - FedoraCND Shellac - RubbleLancôme- Chocolate Mordoré £12.50

Could brown become the new black?  I love browns its a twist on the normal nude but not as deep as black, keep it super glossy with a top coat or gel version such as shellac! 

Nails inc - Dover St Market £11MUA - Leapfrog £1

A bit of colour... Whether you go for a candy-color version  or a deep plum like this Nails Inc Dover st Market, give purple a go! It’s an elegant update for fall which i love. I find that teal is simply one of those colors that works year-round, this little gem is very similar in look to that of essie but is a fraction of the price at just £1! Now I've not pictured it but i really want a good navy blue for this fall! Its not quite as edgy as a black,  but blue looks just as sophisticated and i think its a perfect match on square-meets-oval nail shapes.

So what do you think of this Fall nail colour choices!? Do you have any Navy blue suggestions for me?
