Nail Polish Battle 2021: Nude and Brown

Previously I looked at the pink, red, orange and yellow polishesgreen polishesglitter polishes from 2021, today I am looking at brown and nude polishes.

Out of the ten polishes I worked out my top three;

Cappuccino was part of the Autumn 2021 Nude gelly collection, I chose this mid brown shade as its not too dark or too light. I think it a good basic cream polish. Comes with a paddle brush and is opaque in two coats.

I'm Gonna Wreck It! is a holographic brown polish which I liked wearing in autumn, it was part of the Under Appreciated Disney Holo's collection. It took two coats to achieve fully opacity and has a flat, wide brush.

Meaning the winner is; Aj Nails Venus This was a more recent purchase, I was looking for a duochrome polish with the same colour shift as the flakes in Fancy Gloss Magma, which came second in 2020 nail polish battle. This polish has a beautiful red, orange, green shift which I really liked wearing this past autumn.

Nails: Top 5 Autumn / Fall Polishes 2021

As autumn arrives today I thought I would share my top five autumn / fall nail polishes.
I have done similar posts in 2020201920182017201620152014, and 2013.

A England - Gloriana // Aj Nails - Venus // Barry M - Matcha // Barry M - Espresso // ILNP - Eclipse

A England Gloriana is a metallic rust orange shade which reminds me of autumnal leaves.

Aj Nails Venus a polish which is new to my collection but it is a duochrome polish shifting between bronze and gold with a slight green shift.

Barry M Matcha is a army green cream polish which is nice for autumnal skittle nails.

Barry M Espresso, another new to my collection polish. Espresso is a dark brown cream polish, you can tell it is a brown and not black on the nails which is nice.

ILNP Eclipse, one of the first red to black shifting polishes from late 2020. Dark and shifty, something which is distracting watching the shifts on the nails.
