Nails: Top Five Winter Polishes 2023

As Thursday was 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 2022 (here), 2021 (here), 2020 (here), 2019 (here), 2018 (here), 2017 (here) and 2016 (here).

Nail Polish Battle 2022: Dark Purple

Next up I am looking over my dark purples, I've split the purples in to two as purple is the colour I appear to have bought this past year.

Femme Fatale Cave of Wonders // Kathleen and Co Graveyard Shift // UberChic Don't Hex My Vibe // Vanessa Molina Dark Opal // Paradox Crocus Sativus // Danglefoot Evil Robot Lady // Danglefoot Apocalypse // Glisten and Glow Cats and Bats // Cadillacquer Purple Lights // FYNO Nirvana // Cat Tail Bloody and Bruised // Orly Plum Noir // OPI Abstract After Dark

As with the light purples it was tricky to choose only three from the 13 in this category. Went with a magnetic, flakie and a tri-thermal.

In third place is Graveyard Shift, a multichrome magnetic which looks better in person than in photos.

In second is Crocus Sativus (Saffron) which is a jelly violet base with pink flakies and scattered holo.

Finally in third place is Bloody and Bruised, my first tri-thermal polish. It is a cream thermal changing from plum, blue to lilac. I hope the thermal doesn't die soon in it.

This week's prompt is 'Violet'. Here is a link to my 2012 version, as well as the image below my 2022 version. Also my white stamping polish changed colour when I top coated for some reason.
