The Something A Bit Different : OPI - Schnapps Out Of It!; the perfect Autumnal Orange. It reminds me of crunchy leaves and pumpkins. Not for everyone but one of my favourites!
The Berry/Burgundy Hybrid: Chanel - April; Intended as a transition from Winter to Summer, I don't see why it can't be used the other way around. It's perfect if you want a little bit of that Autumn berry tone without going too dark, or too red if that's not your style.
The Red: Essie - Forever Yummy; The Red red. This is my favourite shade of red at the moment, and a fairly recent purchase. A true red. Everyone needs one. That is all.
The Shimmer: OPI - Diva Of Geneva; This covers your purple, and your shimmer. For me I start to feel festive at the end of August, so a shimmery nail polish is the way to feel it with out people judging you; I tend to leave the gold and silver shimmer/full on glitter to the beginning of December. Santa hats and Christmas tree earrings are not yet (or really ever) appropriate.
The Statement: OPI - Lincoln Park After Dark; Everyone needs their go to dark nail polish. This is mine. Again something a bit different than a full on black; although if that's your statement love, go for it! Another alternative is an almost black navy blue, or almost black red. The hint of colour just gives a little something extra than a pure black.
