Top Five Autumn Nail Polishes

The next in my Autumn-themed series is my favourite nail colours for heading into the cooler months; personally, I'm all for wearing bright colours and dragging the warm weather out as long as possible, but if you prefer to tone things down as the days get darker, here are my suggestions:
Autumn Nail Polishes
Nail Polishes for Autumn
(L -R: Body Collection Crystal Suede Nail Lacquer 'Little Black Dress'; 
Khroma Beauty 'Fever Dream'; Look Beauty Nail Pop 'Kimono'; 
ELF Nail Polish 'Dark Navy'; Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine 'Blackberry')
Body Collection Little Black Dress
'Little Black Dress' is a lovely glittery shade, but without all the hassle of removing glitter polish - love! I really like the textured finish of this polish, although it only lasts a day or two before it's worn down to a smooth, semi-matte finish.
Khroma Beauty Fever Dream
'Fever Dream' isn't as dark on the nail as it looks in the bottle, which is sort of a shame, but I kind of prefer it a little brighter so it's okay I guess! This is perfect for the burgundy/oxblood shades which are hot at this time of year.
Look Beauty Kimono
'Kimono' is a beautiful Autumnal multichrome, flashing orange, green and gold depending on the light. It reminds me of Autumn leaves and is seasonal without being too dark, which I like. I've had this ages and never properly worn it, but all that is going to change this season!
ELF Dark Navy
'Dark Navy' looks black on the nail at first glance, but on closer inspection it's exactly what the name suggests - a super-dark navy blue. In the bottle it looks to have a bit of shimmer to it, but sadly this doesn't seem to translate onto the nail.
Barry M Blackberry Plum
'Blackberry' is my favourite of the polishes I own from the Gelly Hi-Shine range and, although I wish it looked as bright on the nail as it does in the bottle, I'm not complaining as it's still gorgeous, with a glossy finish and a deep colour which does remind me of September afternoons blackberry-picking - although I believe Barry M have actually re-named this polish 'Plum'?
What are your favourite Autumn nail polishes? Do you own any of these polishes?
