When I used to treat myself to manicures frequently (before I could no longer justify the cost) this was the colour I would always ask for. It’s a gorgeous deep shade of red with a very subtle hint of shimmer to it and I’d say it’s probably my all-time favourite red nail polish. You can pick up OPI’s I’m Not Really A Waitress for $19.95 from Adore Beauty.

The only time I wear glitter nail polish is around the Christmas and New Years holiday period,so when my mum brought me this OPI/Sephora nail polish back from the US I knew it had to be my New Years Eve shade for the year. It took around 3 coats to get an opaque coverage and the colour is a beautiful mix of champagne, rose gold and a soft pewter colour depending on the light.

I was looking through my nail polish collection the other day, and this is by far my most worn polish for the Autumn/Winter months. I love it. It has a very slight shimmer to it, which really helps to brighten the deep plum colour. The formulation of these nail polishes is great, and they usually last on my nails for a good 5 days or so before chipping.

I went through a phase a little while back of obsessing over the Mecca nail polish range. I’ve since gotten over that obsession and I don’t think I’ve purchased a new shade in over a year or so. The colours that I do already own from their range though, are beautiful. ‘Audrey’ is one of my favourite cool-weather shades, and it’s a lot more beautiful in person than what shows in the image above. In fact, this colour is so pretty that at least 3 of my friends have gone out and purchased this after seeing me wear it. Not bad, huh?

This is one Essie shade that I’d never heard of before ordering it from OzSale a few months back (and with a name like that, you’d think I would have). It’s a beautiful deep red shade with a hint of shimmer to it. And let that sentence forever stand as a testament to how crap I am at describing nail polish shades. In any case, it’s a pretty colour and perfect for the cooler months.

I’ve literally had this colour on my nails non-stop since the beginning of March. My grandmother brought it back from me after her trip to the USA last year, and I’ve only just opened up the bottle as it’s the start of Autumn and time to start wearing these sorts of shades. This is pretty much the perfect mushroom purple/grey colour, so if you’re lucky enough to live in the US or are able to get someone to ship it to you – I suggest doing so ASAP!
