We're well into Winter now, Christmas is just around the corner and so what better time to share my favourite wintery nail polish shades. These are the ones I tend to reach for again and again as it gets colder-needless to say there are a few metallic/glittery ones, although the colour palette is not particularly on the dark side. As much as I like wearing blacks/dark reds/navys in the winter, they are a pretty obvious choice so I thought I'd show you some alternatives. Sadly some of these are now discontinued but I've found some dupes if you want to purchase yourself a similar shade.
2. Nars Night Porter was a gift from my boyf's sister for my birthday one year. Before I had this polish I used to HATE shimmery polishes, I thought they were naff and dated. This completely changed my mind because it looks so beautiful on. It is expensive but for once I feel like the price is almost justified, I've tried high end polishes in the past and been disappointed, but Night Porter goes on like a dream, you can get away with just one coat, and it does last if used with a top coat. (Please excuse the horrible top- it had nail polish on so I tried to remove it with remover and this happened!)
3. Deborah Lippmann Razzle Dazzle I got in a glossy box 2 years ago-it is the perfect festive shade and it looks especially amazing on toes when wearing party shoes! Top Tip- you have to use a fairly glossy top coat with this nail polish as it dries kinda matte which is a little weird.
4. Avon Vintage Blue is a polish which I believe has been discontinued, however Essie has a great dupe here. It's a cool icy blue shade which always makes me think of winter and ice skating.
5. Topshop Moonbeam is unfortunately no longer available either- I think it was limited edition. It was more difficult to find a dupe of this one, it's like a mix between this from Barry M and this from Butter London. It's a shame it's discontinued as it's such a pretty metallic heather grey colour that goes on really smoothly. Maybe it will pop up on eBay.
Which are your favourite colours for winter/Christmas?
