Nails: Top 5 Winter Polishes 2021

As yesterday 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 2020 (here), 2019 (here), 2018 (here), 2017 (here) and 2016 (here).

Gold Rush is a straight up metallic gold polish, very vivid but seasonal.

White Moonstone is new to my collection, a white textured polish with a slight sparkle to it. A white is always good for nail art around this time of year, having texture to it is something a bit different.

Candy Cane is another new to my collection polish, it is a thermal going between light pink and red with red and white glitter pieces. Almost like nail art in a bottle.

Icicle is a silver holographic bar glitter with micro glitter particles in it. For me this might be more New Year appropriate but anytime in December holographic polish would work.

Finally Proserpine, which is a darker green holographic polish. Green is a shade I lean towards in December, as this is holographic is adds something extra to a cream green.

Topic Tuesday: Favourite Gold Polishes

I prefer silver to gold polishes, however for this question I would say Models Own Gold Rush is my favourite from my collection. It is bright and quite clearly gold.

Nerd Nail Challenge: Harry Potter

This it the last challenge for the Nerd Nail Challenge and if you have been following I have been having problems with doing some of the challenges because I haven't seen the shows or films the nails are based around. Today it is the turn of Harry Potter, I have actually watched all of the movies, although it isn't something which I particularly enjoyed. Anyhow on with the nails!

Nails: Goodbye to the Summer

I used Max Factor Intense Plum as a base and used W7 Black and Ebalay Rose Gold 004 as a gradient, Jessica Silver Holographic Topcoat for some twinkles. Finally I painted on some people, a palm tree and a waving hand, adieu summer!

Nerd Nail Challenge: Hunger Games

Another challenge which was particularly challenging, as I have never watched Hunger Games, or read the books. Which doesn't really help when doing nails!

Swatch: Models Own - Gold Rush

I was contacted by Littlewoods to review a couple of Models Own nail polishes, my first thought was I didn't even know they sold cosmetics! But apparently they do along with Barry M, OPI, Nails Inc, Butter London, Bourjois, Rimmel and NYX and as we all know it is vitally important to know of all nail polish outlets and in this case nailcare products at Littlewoods.

On to the nail polish, this one is Gold Rush (NP 106).


Colour: Gold
Finish: Glassflecked rather than a foil
Opacity: Two coats
Brush Type: Standard
How Much? 14ml

I'm not sure if this colour really works with my skin tone, but I imagine on a deeper skin tone it would look amazing. So I thought I would use Gold Rush as a base for a bit of nail art:

Models Own - Gold Rush
W7 - Black
Bundle Monster - BM208
