Winter/Christmas Nails

I'm sure you all know by now that I'm 100% addicted to nail polishes, and so today I wanted to share with you my picks for the festive/wintery season.

As you can probably tell, most of these colours are fairly dark, as that's mostly what I wear in winter. However, the slightly brighter option I included was Max Factor's Sparkling Berry. This is a dark pink berry colour which I've been wearing a lot recently, and also the packaging is just stunning. Next are a couple of colours from Essie - I absolutely adore Essie polishes, they're probably some of my favourites and the colour selection is huge too. Firstly is a pretty navy in Style Cartel. I think this was from their autumn or winter collection this year, and it's just a nice classic shade that goes with pretty much everything. I also included Essie's Sole Mate, a gorgeous burgundy colour. I was on the hunt for a colour like this for ages as I wanted one that wasn't too blood-red or too brown toned, and this one is just perfect!

Next is a Rimmel nail polish from the Salon Pro Lycra range in the shade Punk Rock. This is something a bit different for me, as I don't often wear purples, but it's quite a grey toned purple which I think looks really nice and a bit more edgy too. And lastly is a top coat from Barry M. I always like to bring out the glittery top coats in the winter, as they just give your nails a bit of something extra, and this one is no exception - it comes out kind of like gold leaf chunks and looks stunning on the nails.

What are your favourite colours for Christmas and winter in general?
