The winter nail polish edit


Now, I don't wear nail polish all the time. I mean to, but then i just forget. Or maybe i'm just lazy. Probably the latter. Anyway, i thought i'd compost an edit of my go to winter polishes which grace my tips when i do end up reaching for a bottle.

An obvious choice, but there's a blackened hue polish which has truly grabbed my attention. Essie Luxedo is a gorgeous deep true purple shade which appears almost black in the bottle and when built up more than a couple of coats. I love this as it's so chic and just goes with every outfit. Another love, but slightly less obvious is Chocolate cake by essie. I've already reviewed it here, but in short, it's a deep reddish brown shade which looks great with one coat as a sheer wash of woody colour, or built up to a deep blackened warm red.

Onto the paler tones, and theres something about nudes and muted pastels which makes them perfect for winter. Essie Parka perfect is one which i didn't really think i'd get along with, but boy was a wrong. It's a dull pastel blue shade with a tinge of grey and a subtle shimmer running through which just adds dimension and catches the light all pretty. It's an unusual shade, but i love it all the same. On a similar, muted polish vein is OPI Barefoot in barcelona. Barefoot is a Darker nude/pink shade with a hint of brown to it which makes it very effortless and chic. I love it as it makes the nails look very minimal, but is very different to the usual mannequin like nudes. Lastly is Essie Sand tropez, a pale beige nude which can look slightly mannequin-esque, but in a good way. There's a slight hint of grey to it which makes it a lot more wearable, and i just love how it blends in to my fingers and looks very minimal, meaning i don't have to worry about it clashing with my makeup or clothing choices. A winner all round. 

What are your favourite shades? I already have a few more on my wishlist...
