Autumn Polish Favourites

It's time for another round of my seasonal polish favourites, and this time I've rounded up my must-haves for Autumn. As usual I've narrowed it down to six, and it's been the hardest set to choose so far, I kept changing my mind and having to paint a new colour wheel! The list is in no particular order, although for one particular shade I just can't hide my favouritism.

This Autumn I've really been in to brown shades, which is new for me; most people wouldn't consider a brown polish wearable but I think the two I've chosen in my list definitely make it so. I've really stayed on the darker side of the colour spectrum with one exception, I haven't even worn a bright on my nails (with the exception of swatching) for ages. 

Barry M Black Cherry

I'm still surprised by how much I like this, usually super dark shades aren't my thing, but there's something I love about this one from the recent Midnight Gelly collection.

piCture pOlish Autumn

This HAD to be in the list. I love the slightly burnished orange shade and the scattered holo takes it to another level. See swatches here

Illamasqua Faithful

An oldie but a goodie, I only recently realised how much I like this shade. Definitely not to everyone's tastes, it's a coppery brown with strong copper and gold shimmer. This has been in my stash for ages and never made it to the blog, so I'm happy it's finally getting a mention.

Cirque Deco

This dark lavender-grey creme from the Cirque Colors Metropolis collection is an instant classic. I love the classy and understated feel, plus it's pretty office friendly. 

a england Let Me In 

This deep berry shade is made all the more beautiful with its sprinkling of scattered holo. Definitely the most Autumn appropriate of the new To Emily Bronte collection.

Colors By Llarowe Mocha Grande

I know this list isn't in any particular order, but if I'm choosing favourites, this is it. The strong rainbow holo against the chocolate brown base is stunning, and I've been wearing this pretty much all the time when I'm not swatching. I seriously adore it, and if you don't already own it, you need to. See swatches here

So that's my list, and I'm really interested to know your favourite Autumn shades (so far) so let me know in the comments. Are there any on my list that you love?
