NAILS | My Top Winter Nail Polishes
You all know how bad I am with painting my nails… But I do tend to make more of an effort once Christmas rolls around! Here are my top fave picks…
I need to update my nail polish collection, because I cannot find links to any of these polishes which means they’re all discontinued stock – yay! – which I know it’s really annoying to talk about stuff that is no longer available, however I have linked other similar options below that you can shop!
Tanya Burr Nail Polish, Penguin Chick
I do love a typical Christmas red shade during December, however I do also like my darker subtle shades – this then means I can add lots of glitter and it’s not too much. Penguin Chick by Tanya Burr is a really lovely purple toned grey. I love wearing this with a silver glitter over the top for the festive season.
Barrym Gold Glitter, 226
Who doesn’t own a gold glitter nail polish!? I love grabbing this one during December and sometimes I’ll just wear it on it’s own and do a full set of glittery nails, other times I’ll layer this over nail polishes (red, black, white, etc.). I find the Barrym glitter nail polishes to remove fairly simple, as I know most glitter nails can be a pain to get off!
Barrym Bright Red, 262
A true Santa Christmas red – you can’t go wrong with one of them! I adore wearing red shades on my nails throughout December as nothing feels more Christmas-sy. The shade of this is actually slightly deeper than it looks in this photo and once you’ve done a second coat, that makes all the difference.
Ted Baker, Sparkly Blue
I don’t wear this one as much as I should, but it is beautiful. I don’t wear many blue shades on my nails, but this one is the perfect shade of blue and because it also contains glitter, I’m all for it!
Topshop Nails in Matte Top Coat
Not to everyone’s taste, but I actually prefer a matte looking nail to a shiny finish. This matte top coat from Topshop is perfect and I’m gutted this one is discontinued, as I’m going to have to find a new alternative that lives up to this one.
Urban Outfitters Glitter Red, Solar Flare
Isn’t this the most beautiful glitter nail polish you ever did see?! Now this one just screams C H R I S T M A S at me and I can’t get enough of it. You can bet I’ll be wearing this one this month! Either layered up on it’s own, or layered on top of another shade.
Here are a couple of picks I have on my Christmas/Winter nail polish picks;
