Nails: Top 5 Winter Polishes 2022

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 2021 (here), 2020 (here), 2019 (here), 2018 (here), 2017 (here) and 2016 (here).

Pudding Lane - I seem to wear more white during winter than summer, either way its a good base for snow based nail art. This is an off white cream finish polish.

St. George - A good dark green holo polish.

You're on Sapphire - A dark blue shimmer, quite an icy shade.

Nail Polish Swatch Orly You're on Sapphire

Berry Cosmo a dark purple but clearly is a purple not a black, cream finish polish.


 Naughty - And finally a deep oxblood cream polish, winter is a time I reach for dark polishes more often.

Nail Polish Battle 2016: Purple Polishes

Over the past year the purple polishes seem to have been the colour which I have gotten the most of.

Essie - Virgin Snow // Barry M - Vintage Violet // Barry M - Berry Cosmo // Leighton Denny - Raspberry Affair // Nails Inc - Clarence Avenue // Champneys - Plum // Champneys - Mulberry // Sally Hansen - Plum Luck // W7 - Chocolate Pudding // Barry M - Nightshade // NYC - West Village

Breaking down this category was difficult, I ended up with Nails Inc, Sally Hansen and a Barry M. All are darker purple colours.

Clarence Avenue won however because Nails Inc have the best brushes in my opinion. Flat and wide with a curved cuticle which means little to no clean up with is great. This polish is clearly purple where as the other two are very dark, especially the Barry M one, it almost looks black.
