I'm a big fan of dark berries and grey coloured nails during the colder months. I think it's because I tend to wear darker clothes in the Winter and I feel like dark nails just pull the outfit together. Above I've selected a few of my favourite shades that I've been loving recently for both their colour and formula.
I absolutely love the formula of the Nails Inc Gel Effect polishes, they go on super shiny and last a good amount of time without chipping- even on my chip prone nails. They also come in a huge range of shades now and lots of darker colours for Autumn/Winter. Another one from Nails Inc is the Alexa Chung Polish in the shade Uptown, this is an amazing nude shade and the formulation is excellent. Whenever I wear it people ask whether I have gel polish on, it's super shiny, glossy and thick looking and last a really long time.
This summer Max Factor launched their Gel Shine Lacquers and again these are super shiny and glossy and I love the shades Sparkling Berry and Sheen Merlot. The last gel effect polish is from Barry M in the shade Almond, this is a really love beige shade and if you like thick polishes you'll love this range.
Lastly, I really love the Butter London Polish in Full Steam Ahead for a dark grey, Models Own in Utopia is probably in my top 5 favourite shades as its a beautiful milky beige and Addictive Plum from the L'Oreal Colour Riche range is another great berry shade.
