As today is Yule, the Winter Solstice signalling the start of the official winter season in the Northern Hemisphere I thought now would be a good time to share my top five winter polishes. I have done similar blog posts in previous years 2019 (here), 2018 (here), 2017 (here) and 2016 (here).
W7 - Red Dazzle // Barry M - Nightshade // OPI - Born to Sparkle // Barry M - French Rose // OPI - Let Your Love Shine
Red Dazzle was the first polish I picked, would it be the festive season without a red? I thought a glitter would be really good, and I have had this for over five years so time to use it again!
Nightshade is an almost black cream polish, while red and sparkle is nice for this time of year a dark polish is nice for new years, particularly with a glitter gradient.
For a glitter gradient I like using Born to Sparkle, it is a rose gold hex glitter with small standard glitter in a clear base.
And because it is nice to have something that isn't as in your face this season, French Rose, I think this would be a nice nude pink polish on someone with a darker skin tone than me but on me this is a dark enough polish that doesn't come off as nude. You could also use Born to Sparkle on top of this.
Finally Let Your Love Shine is a beautiful glass flecked deeper red polish, this one is more traditionally festive than the Red Dazzle above. I haven't worn this polish nearly enough!
