Beau Polish - Autumn Collection

*AD - Gifted*
Hi lovelies! Today I have the newly released Autumn Collection from Beau Polish to share with you. Beau Polish is a new to me UK indie brand, so I was more than happy to swatch these and give the brand a try! The Autumn Collection consists of 2 cremes, and 3 shimmers, one of which is a rerelease. Each  polish also has a colour coordinated hand-tied bow attached to the cap, which I think is super cute! Read on for my full swatches and nail art with each polish.

All of the polishes in this collection had fab formulas. They were all super smooth and easy to apply. For the most part they were fully opaque in two coats, though I did need a quick third on a couple which I'll mention as I go. I had no issues with staining, removal, or anything else. Let's get into it!

'It's Not Me, It Mustard Be You' is a mustard yellow creme. I love mustard polishes so I was so excited about this one. I could still just about see my nail line after two coats, so did need a third. Below is three coats with topcoat.

Mustard is such a perfect autumnal colour, so I couldn't resist adding some autumn leaves. I stamped a leaf image from Lina Nail Art Supplies plate 4 Seasons - Autumn 02 using a gradient of Painted Polish 'Stamped in Crimson' and 'Woodland Whimsy 2.0'.

'Wined & Dined' is a deep red creme. I expected to need a third on this as I usually do with reds, but it was good to go in two. Below is two coats with topcoat.

Sticking again to the autumnal theme, I used the same stamping plate to create a sunflower mani. I reverse stamped the sunflower images and coloured them in using 'It's Not Me, It Mustard Be You'. I finished by popping the 'Autumn is here' wording onto my middle nail.

'Kelp Yourself' is a shimmery sage green. Below is two coats with topcoat.

For my last Autumn/fall mani of the collection, I switched this one up a bit. On my ring and pinky nails, I drybrushed both 'Kelp Yourself' and 'It's Not Me, It Mustard Be You' over a white base. I then stamped a pumpkin image over the top in black, again from Lina plate 4 Seasons - Autumn 02.

'Dream of Grapeness' is a shimmery dusty purple. Below is two coats with topcoat.

For these last two polishes, I decided to do some Halloween themed manis. I did originally plan to do black cats over this one, but wanted something a bit brighter, so settled on these cute little ghosts from Creative Shop plate 106.

'Oh, Gurl! Burn!' is a shimmery orange-toned red. This one is a re-release As mentioned, I do tend to need a third coat on red polishes to cover my nail line, and I did just about need it with this one. Below is three coats with topcoat.

For my second Halloween mani, I went with a dripping blood look. Now this mani didn't turn out quite how I imagined (and I had a few hiccups along the way!), but I do still like it. The drip image I used is from UberChic Beauty plate Halloween-01.

What do you think? I'm definitely feeling much more Autumnal at the moment, and I'm a bit torn between both that and Halloween nails - so as you can see, I've gone for a bit of both! I have to say I'm impressed with my first try of Beau Polish, and I'd love to share some more with you again in the future.

You can find the full Autumn Collection (as well as others!) on the Beau Polish website here. Each polish is £7.20 for a 10ml bottle, and is 10-free, cruelty free, and vegan.

Hope to see you in the next post!
