Honestly, we’re in full support of a polish collection top-up at any old time of year, but hey, it’s nice that a new season gives us a legitimate excuse to shop for fresh shades.

And if you’re down to embrace the chicest colours of autumn (without having to spend a fortune on a new wardrobe), let your mani do the talking with these gorgeous fall-friendly hues.

  1. I’m more of a pink girl, but if I had to chose one of these shades, I’d probably go for the light blue Saltwater Happy. It’s not my first choice, but it’s pretty.

  2. Is anyone else having problems with this site? Every time I leave a comment and click on 'Post my comment' it takes me to an error site. The comment does get posted, but it does not earn a point.

  3. I realised that my comments were still being posted even when the error message displayed, but I didn't realise that I wasn't earning a point. I've just checked and definitely no point has been added to my tally. I think I might stop commenting on articles until the problem has been fixed.
