The Winter Nail Polish Edit

This is my favourite time of year for wearing nail polish and I love anything red, navy or glittery during the festive season. I thought i'd put together a post featuring a few of my favourites along with some design ideas from Pinterest.

Nails Inc Red Glitter, Topshop Song & Dance, No7 Disco Ball

Essie Blanc is a great white base for any of the glitter polishes - No7 Glitter Ball gives a really wintery effect as it's a really fine glitter while Topshop Song & Dance is perfect for Christmas or New Year parties. I couldn't leave out a red glitter polish at Christmas so I chose this one from Nails Inc - I wouldn't say it's the best one out there but it's perfect for pairing with either a white or a red on Christmas Day.

Nails Inc Piccadilly Circus & Motcomb Street, Topshop Domestic Goddess, Essie Blanc

Nails Inc Piccadilly Circus looks more red toned on the photo but it's actually more of a deeper purple colour which I love to wear with a camel chunky knit jumper for the perfect wintery look. Motcomb Street is another colour I prefer to wear at this time of year - it's a dark navy shade that doesn't chip easily and also looks nice layered with a fine gold glitter polish.

I've mentioned Topshop's Domestic Goddess polish a few times before as it's a lovely dusky red/pink that is a bit different from any of the traditional red nail polish colours that you get. This is actually my second bottle as I wear it a lot and the formula perfect as it dries quickly and you only need a couple of coats.

I love Pinterest for nail ideas so I thought i'd pick out a few of my favourites to share. The original links to these along with lots of others are on my 'Nails' board. My favourites are the gold glitter ones (second from left) and i'm hopefully going to try and create something similar if I have time!

  6. The Topshop nail polishes are ace! The colours are amazing and I find they're pretty good in terms of not chipping too. These are all great wintry picks :) xx
