OPI - My Top 10 for Autumn

Don't you just <3 autumn? or Fall to our American friends :)

Multicoloured leaves skatter the ground, new winter coats, boots, gloves and fabulous colours...

Here's my line up of my top OPI picks this autumn ...


Glamour Game
A champagne gold shimmer, very subtle and not as in your face as Bling Dynasty or Glitzerland from this years collection

Meet Me at the Star Ferry
Plum/burgundy with shimmer, lots of shimmer. A perfect autumn colour, reminds me of fallen leaves and conkers.

Cuckoo for this Colour
Emerald green shimmer, who could resist? I have so many compliments on this polish so naturally I will be reaching for colour often :)

Jewel Tones

Pamplona Purple
Bright Purple magenta - autumn doesn't have to mean that you cant wear colour and this purple shade is perfect! Although Barry M have an exact dupe in 303 Bright Purple, I still find myself reaching for Pamplona Purple.

Ski Teal We Drop
I love teals and turquoises so this new addition had to be included <3 it. Totally unique in my OPI collection.

Sapphire in the Snow
There is only one way to describe this colour - Blurple, a dark blue, purple. Haven't come across any dupes for this as of yet, and had a lot of trouble tracking it down from the UK. One of the stand outs from 2009 Holiday Wishes collection and perfect for autumn, purple is always a fave colour this time of year for me.

Red and Nudes

Vodka and Caviar
I was late on the band wagon on this one, I'm not really a fan of red polishes so only have a few in my collection and this is so far the only one I have dared to wear out of the house, only on my toes, but that counts right? right! in fact it has been on my toes ever since I got it about a month ago, theres something that just makes it different from a cherry or cheap fire engine red colour and I love it. It will maybe make it to a mani colour for Christmas.

You Don't Know Jacques
YDKJ has been featured in just about every Autumn/Fall 2010 YouTube video I have watched, and rightly so. This remains a firm favourite for me all year round. Who can resist a murky taupe brown? Very flattering, looks good on everyone, can't go wrong with this polish.

Barefoot in Barcelona
Another new addition to my collection, having been on my wish list for quite some time I decided it was gonna have to be, and I'm so glad I got it. To my eye its in the middle ground between Tickle my France-y and Kreme de la Kremlin, a good nude colour, perfect for mannequin hands.


and Mad as a Hatter! love this multi coloured glitter, and judging by OPI's latest collection- Burlesque. Glitter is definitely in this winter, from promo pics and sneak peaks I think Sparkle-isious is going to be a good dupe (with a few gold/yellow tones added in for good measure) so if you missed out on the Alice in Wonderland collection it will be a good one to pick up. I was lucky enough to get my hands on 2 bottles of MAAH so I have a back up one, but I am still longing for some Burlesque in my life.

What colours will you be wearing this Autumn?


  1. Your so lucky you picked up 2 bottles of mad as a hatter. I wasn't too crazy about it when it came out, but now I want it soooo bad!

  2. aw you should definatly pick up Sparkle-isious from the Burlesque collection then! I have a feeling its going to be popular, the holiday collections always are!!!
