When I want a quick manicure, I always reach for Essie as they have over a hundred colours to choose from for all occasions. If you're not sure where to start and you want to find a new nail vanish for Autumn, then I've narrowed it down to five of my favourites.
Angora Cardi* continues to make it onto every Essie seasonal post I've ever done. It's named as the most Pinterest worthy nail shade and if you've ever worn it, you'll understand why. It's a deep mauve shade that goes with everything and lasts a considerable amount of time on the nails. Perfect if you want a dark shade, but nothing too overpowering.
One nail vanish that stands out amongst the rest is Cargo Cameo*. If I could sum this up, I would say it reminds me of autumnal woods as the brown with gold speckles reminds me of crisp fallen leaves. Absolutely dreamy if you want a unique looking manicure for this season.
If you want a nail shade darker than Angora Cardi, then I would recommend checking out Bahama Mama. It's a rich plum colour that feels like the perfect shade to wear with a cosy cardigan and comfy socks. There's something about this that I always come back to and despite rarely ever finishing a bottle of nail vanish, I've gone through a couple of these.
Now for something a little different and it's Fishnet Stockings*, a classic red shade that doesn't have a blue or orange undertone, so I think it works well with everything. With two applications, it creates an opaque, shiny finish that means you don't have to wear a top coat with it if you're in a rush. I would go as far to say that if you're only looking to own one red shade, then make sure it is this one.
If you want Halloween in a bottle then look no further as Sole Mate* is just that! It's a deep plum colour that upon glance looks almost black, but the purple hue makes it a super unique shade to have in your collection. I think this would be the perfect pick to pair with nail art at this time of the year, but I personally love wearing it on it's own too especially on the 31st October.
