Shades of fall- Barry M Mushroom

 know many of you must be thinking it’s a bit early for me to already be taking about autumn colours and shades but I live in rainy London where summer is short meaning we have pretty much hit autumn. Of course I’m still hoping for a little more sun but I must admit half way through each season I start to get bored and start hoping for the next season so I can pull out clothes and makeup which I haven’t used for a while.

Over the weekend I picked up two new Barry M nail polishes, both in what I considered an Autumn/winter colour but I later got home and wasn’t to over whelmed by the colour.
I chose to try ‘Mushroom’ first which looks like a medium tones brown with grey undertones which I actually thought I was going to hate. I applied two coats although one would have actually been enough, the colour was a slightly darker colour then what it appeared in the bottle and the quality was good like most other Barry M nail polishes.

I would say this colour is quite similar to Particuliere nail polish by Chanel but obviously much cheaper (I don’t own Particuliere but they appear to be similar in images) and Mushroom is actually quite a classic/elegant colour.

This nail polish pleasantly surprised me and will be on my nails all through the autumn and winter. I also bought racing green but I will save that for another post. What do you think of this nail polish? What is your favourite autumn nail polish?
