My Top 5 Winter Nail Polishes


I have only been painting my nails for about a year and a half, before that I had the awful habit of biting my nails (this habit does have a tendency to reappear on some occasions). So when I first discovered the wonderful world of nail varnishes, I didn't put much thought into what colours suited what season etc. However now, I love the bright and neon colours in the summer, pastels in spring, and for the autumn and winter, berrys and deeper shades take my fancy. So I thought I would show you my top 5 polishes that I love to wear in these colder months.
First up is Raspberry by Berry M. This shade sums up autumn in a colour, it is the perfect berry with a lovely gloss finish that the Barry M polishes have. I love wearing this colour as it is so wearable and goes with so many items in my wardrobe. Another Barry M shade I love to wear at this time of year is Mushroom. It is a pale, neutral shade which looks classy on its own, and is subtle enough for everyday wear!
Another polish I love to wear is Blue Eyed Girl by Rimmel. This shade is quite bright for this time of year, but the blue is such a lovely tone that I think it is perfect, especially for an evening out or a party.
I have a few George polishes in my collection, they're super cheap and they have a lovely glossy finish-plus they're very quick to dry! The shade Cupcake is a beautiful soft, dusky pink which I think is perfect for this of year. I quite like pairing this with Mushroom and wearing Cupcake on an accent nail.
Finally, Damson Dream by No 7 is a perfect festive party shade. Its a deep plum colour which looks beautiful, but the polish does need a few coats to get the desired look.
What's great about all of these shades is they all have great staying power, and they're all drug store so you don't need to break the bank to get beautiful, winter nails!
What are your favourite nail shades? I would love to know!
