Autumn Nails: Essie Bordeaux

It's dark nail season, hooray! I love Autumn, and I absolutely love Essie Bordeaux!

"Deep red wine nail polish uncorks a positively intoxicating manicure. Everybody's under the influence of this vintage beauty bottled at chateau gorgeous."

Much like its namesake, Bordeaux is an opaque red wine nail polish but it can be an interesting mix of colours depending on how many coats you apply. One coat paints a pretty deep pink, two reveals this lovely dark wine, and three or more makes for a chic almost-black nail. It really is a menagerie of Autumn colours. Dark nails are pretty much synonymous of A/W, and I think it adds a bit of sophistication to any outfit (paired with fur coats and ankle boots come to mind) I also applied Seche Vite top coat to my nails which seals in the polish and gives it a gel-like finish - it's pure love!

Are you a fan of dark nails?

Essie nail polishes retail at £7.99, and are available from Boots, Superdrug and online.
