Autumnal Nails with Revlon and OPI
I am not a big fan of Summer nail polishes, apart from the coral pink ones, they without fail, look dreadful on me, I don’t think my skin is made for such bright colours.
Now Autumn colours is a completely different matter. These are just the colours I have worn in the last week, I reckon I could list about 20 colours that I love for Autumn.
As you can see from the pictures above, the colour in the bottle is somewhat different than the colour once applied. All of these are 2 coats and no top coat.
Revlon Smoky Canvas– Review
Smoky Canvas is such an easy to wear everyday colour, it is a kind of a mushroom colour and looks great on the days where you just want to wear black. I like that this one is good at hiding chips too. It is obviously not quite on the same chip-hiding scale as Nude polishes but it’s not bad either. It is nice and opaque after 2 coats and has a reasonable glossy finish. It seems to have been discontinued now but Bare Bones by the same brands is just a slightly warmer version.
OPI – My Private Jet – Review
I adore this colour and had been after it for about a year when I eventually needed a top up product to get a deal on a purchase of a steam mop (oh the glamour) and so I got this. I want to wear this everyday, obviously this is not possible, but I still wish I could. For those of you in-the-know out there, this is the non-holographic version, but I like its subtle sparkle as I am not a big bling fan.
Revlon Mischievous – Review
I have had this a couple of years now and it is a lovely muted purple. It as actually closer to the colour in the bottle than the photos I took, but I couldn’t get it to show up well at all. In case you haven’t gathered I am am a serious Revlon nail polish fan. Their formulas are so heavily pigmented and the bottle is larger at the bottom which helps me to not knock it over whilst applying it. I also really like the brushes that come with them. I often buy these when they are 2 for £10 in Superdrug. They last for ever and I rarely get to the end of one. Again this one has been discontinued but here is an almost identical shade from Barry M called Cappucino £2.99.
