Nail Polish AW11

You know you were going to see this post come up sooner of later ;)

I was actually thinking of doing a whole blog post about the key make-up and beauty trend for AW11 , but as(you ALL should know) I LOVE NAILS, I thought NOPE, the nail trend shall have its own post so lets forget the face for a  moment and about this season's smoky eye or red lip(well it seems to be so popular and always fall in every season in my opinion) because all attention is heading down south and will be on your fingertips.

Nowadays, nails are having a fashion moment with icons like Rihanna, Katy Perry the Kardashians and Beyonce all getting in on the act.  The must-have nail colours of the AW11 season, range from ‘70s inspired denim shades and vibrant metallic hues, to sludgy autumnal shades and chic brown hues.

Here we have a range of colours inspired by material effects. Nothing better than the Chanel nail varnish collection which features metallic and shimmering shades of green and gold (yes IN one bottle), graphite and quartz.
Vernis in Peridot, Quartz and Graphite, £17.50

I don't normally spend over £6 (with my NUS card) on nail varnish but i DEFINITELY would buy the 531 Peridot because (to me) the colours are very beautiful and reminiscent of a peacock feather.

However, if you don't want to break your pockets due to Chanel, you could check out Topshop who are more friendly with pricing and have also launched another limited collection . This season, their colours consist of hazy ‘70s mixture of pastel shades of yellow and mint green, and more autumnal burgundies and browns, so you can follow whatever palette you like.  These colours can be worn by ANYBODY, at ANYTIME for ANY OCCASION.

Beautiful colours, suiting every occasion and outfit + can use my NUS card !!!! = Thanks Topshop ;) x

But even if you think Topshop are a little over budget with their pricing you could head to .... BARRY M !!!!

Yurp still at £2.99. Barry M also have other new additions to nail effects like

And a new instant nail effect with a foil finish
Instant Nail Effects - Foil 

So yeah, with Barry M, your nail collection will cost between £2.99-£3.99 (and don't forget to use your NUS card whenever possible)


With that dealt with, we can check out the dusty mauve's and purple blues palette. Models Own have created their own range of gorgeous, shimmery shades for autumn/winter 2011 at the price of £5.
Colours : Ash Cloud in Purple Rain, Dusty Mauve, Betty Blue, Gun Grey and Pure Purple.

In the Dior AW11 show the colours consisted of pure ‘70s luxe, so it’s no surprise that their nails were too. They’ve created deep, bold shades of midnight blue - a surprisingly elegant look for the evening, but can still be worn during the day.

Remember guys, its NOT all about the brand, just how good the colour looks FOR YOU !!!! So dont buy the whole range from somewhere like Chanel/Dior/YSL if you can find similar colours from MUA for Superdrug. You Get Me?
-Well have fun painting them nails guys ;) x
