I'm usually a little reluctant to leave behind the pastel colours of summer but I've totally embraced darker shades for my nails this year, go me!

I thought I'd share some of my current favourites on the off-chance some of you were looking for some new additions (...well you can never have too many polishes right?) 


a little peek


..of them in the flesh.


top row - left to right

barry m gelly | lychee. a classy all rounder nude that's perfect for work or play.
nails inc | victoria. one of my all time top 5 shades. a deep deep red that look almost black until it catches the light, this bad boy goes with every outfit you can throw at it.
american apparel nail lacquer | lipstick. a little deeper than the classic pillar box red, looks great on pale skintones.
barry m gelly | mustard. I've been totally converted to condiment coloured nails since this beauty came along.
models own | liquorish allsorts* I will never stop loving black nails. end. of.

bottom row - left to right

topshop nails | pillar box. this polish is a sexy little minx, a definite pick me up shade.
barry m nail paint | grey. I've always had a soft spot for grey nails, this is my go-to.
kiko poker nail lacquer | exclusive blue. a vivid inky blue for a days when I fancy some colour.
kiko poker nail lacquer | intuition wine* a gorgeous rich winter shade for cosy days.
nails inc | chiswick park. a purple that dries with more of a matte finish but a dash of top coat will make it shine.

do you have a favourite colour for this time of year?

back soon!

  1. The blue is incredible! I've been looking for a shade this exact colour forever, it's a shame Kiko is hard to get your hands on where I live.

  3. I love all your picks :) I've been loving a burgundy shade from Ciate lately and I've been wearing it with one of Seventeen's gold glitter top coats (the overall effect is very christmassy) xx
