Hello My Honeybee's

Autumn is creeping up on us (yeyy!) and I am starting to see more and more A/W apparel in the shops. I know some people really hate this, but I LOVE the autumn, it is my favourite season and I just cant wait for colourful leaves, crisp air, cosy clothes and warm home-cooked meals!
I always like to try to match my nails with my clothes, so I have been on the hunt for some beautiful shades that will work for the reminder of summer through to the depths of winter - and my salvation came in he form of sweet, sweet Barry M Nail paints!

I love Barry M polishes - they last ages, are super affordable and there is a range of colours and finishes to please everyone!
On my most recent trip to Superdrug I picked up 3 shades that I think are going to be great to see me through to next spring (and even beyond!). 

It took me an ages to decide but I finally settled on 'Burgundy Crush' & 'Rhossili' from the matte finish collection and 'Lychee' from the Gelly Finish collection. I feel that each of these colours will work great in the coming months and I really like that you can mix'n'match them too!
These Polishes will set you back Just £3.99 each, so they are very affordable, and I love how long Barry M's nail polishes last on your fingertips - they are one of my favourites!

'Burgundy Crush' is a rich wine shade, that looks perfect with all the deep autumnal shades of clothing and it works so well with gold jewellery, too. This polish dries matte, so even though it is bold, it will not be too over dramatic. I think this has to be one of my favourite nail polish shades ever!
'Lychee' is part of Barry M's Gelly nail collection, which dries super shiny and lasts ages - much like an at home version of the ever popular gel nails. This nude colour is absolutely perfect for the coming months - it looks gorgeous for a very simplistic manicure and will work well with the rich reds and bold blacks of A/W fashion, as well as pastels during the spring time. This polish can easily be jazzed up with some black nail art or a 'Burgundy Crush' feature nail!
'Rhossili' is a poppin' pink that will look great to see the summer out, but because it is not a bright neon pink, it will also look just lovely with your party season outfit, This polish also dries matte, so it has a very understated feel and is versatile and wear-able with many outfits! 

I just love the brushes on the Barry M polishes, the have a long and dense brush which is perfectly flexible, so you can be sure you are getting a good even coat of polish, for a flawless finish and minimal drying time.
There are a zillion colours in the range and there are always new ones being released, too, so keep your eyes peeled for some more great autumnal shades!

What is your favourite transitional polish? I'd love to try some out!
