#7 Top A/W Nail Products

6 Nov

Hi guys! Sorry for not posting yesterday, I had a load of work to do which I am finding really challenging. I have an essay and presentation to prepare at the moment, not fun at all. But doing this post now is a nice little break from those! Hopefully there won’t be too many days where I don’t post. Fingers crossed :) Now for todays post, top autumn/winter nail products. These are 6 of my favourite nail polishes at the moment, perfect for seeing you through the transition to winter.

Barry M 3-in-1 Basecoat, Topcoat and Nail Harderner – I love Barry M, I have used their polishes ever since I was about 13. This 3-in-1 polish is an absolute essential, and only costs £2.95 (STEAL!). As a topcoat it gives a shiny finish and is great for preventing chips. I find that it leaves my polish chip-free for around a week.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish in 180 Purple Pulse – I picked this up when ASOS had money off Rimmel London a couple of months back. I think I got it for around £2, and it is really good value for money. It is not the most hard-wearing of polishes, but it gives a bright purple colour.

Avon SpeedDry+ Nail Enamel in Twilight Blue – This polish is a really deep navy, with a slight shimmer to it. The metallic finish looks really professional when applied with topcoat. And as the name suggests it dries really quickly, and is quite long-lasting too. I got this a while ago and I can’t remember how much exactly it cost, but I think around £5.

Barry M Nail Polish in 273 Raspberry – This is my favourite Barry M polish (apart from their pastel range which I adore). It is a perfect transitional colour and is a real classic. As always with Barry M polishes they give a great burst of colour and last ages with a topcoat. The photography is not doing this polish justice believe me!

Rimmel London 60 Seconds in 260 Funtime Fuschia – I know pink isn’t the most wintery of colours but I still love this. I guess I am still wishing it was summer when I didn’t have uni work to think of. But still, the colour is brilliant giving a vivid fuschia colour. The formulation is great, and the brush is also fab giving easy application.

Models Own hedkandi in Ibiza Mix – When the weather is all doom and gloom I like to add a bit of glitter to my nails! I usually just add glitter to my fourth finger on each hand. I add a layer of topcoat after applying this and after that it will not budge. It does take a couple of coats to build up a full glitter coverage. The only big downside about this is that it is a nightmare to remove.

Hope you enjoyed this post. If there is anything you would like me to post about just drop me a tweet or email!
