The Transition Nails | Summer - Autumn

Left to Right Nail Inc 'Warwick Street', Orly 'Cupcake', Asda 'Putty Pink', Barry M 'Pomegranate', Joan Collins 'Melanie' and Bourjois 'Bleu Asphalte'.

I know Autumn is nearly upon us but I'm not quite ready to adorn the dark plums and red nails just yet. I feel as if I need a subtle transition into the season - basically I'm not really ready, and want to hold on to summer as much as I can, and these shades are helping me adjust all the more easier.

Nails Inc 'Warwick Street' is a nice shade if you still want to hold on to light colours. The base shade is a muted off white with the addition of fine multi-coloured glitter over the top to make it a bit more seasonal appropriate.
Orly 'Cupcake'  is your typical baby pink but this time it's a little more muted and has a tint of dusky pink to it making it a more wearable Autumn shade.
Asda Gel Pro 'Putty Pink'* is a funny shade. It's not pink, or orange or even brown, but somewhere in between and a mixture of all three. This colour won't be for everyone but I do think it has the 90's Kylie Jenner lip sort of vibe to it.
Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine 'Pomegranate' is a gorgeous raspberry red shade that is a nice merge of the two seasons, not pink and not red but sitting perfectly in the middle.
Joan Collins 'Melanie'* is a stunning muted purple which I think is right on the mark for this time of year. The perfect shade to see you from summer to autumn without going too light or too dark.
Bourjois Ultra Shine 'Bleu Asphalte' is a gorgeous dark lavender grey which is great if you fancy wearing a darker shade but don't want to go all out on the blackened reds and plums.

What shades are adorning you nails at the moment? have you gone full blown Autumnal or are you still hanging on to summer?
*Pr Samples. All thoughts are of course my own.


  1. I like the Asda Gel Pro 'Putty Pink' for a muted pink for fall. Great post!
