Nails: Top 5 Winter Polishes 2020

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).

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!

W7 Red Dazzle

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.

Barry M Nightshade

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.

OPI Born to Sparkle

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!

Nails: Top 5 Winter Polishes 2016

Now that December is upon us I thought I would share this years top 5 winter / festive nail polishes with you all. Expect lots of sparkle!

 Nails Inc - Silver Road Snowglobe // OPI - Let Your Love Shine // A England - Encore Margot // Kiko - Violet Microglitter 255 // A England - Natasha's Dance

First is OPI's Let Your Love Shine, it is a gorgeous deep red with red glass flecks running though it.

Next is A England and Encore Margot, a silver holographic which is sparkly and quite holographic when in the rare winter sun!

What would a top 5 nail polish picks be without a purple. This one is Kiko Purple Microglitter, a dark purple base with multi coloured micro glitter. 

In dark light this looks almost black, with any light shining on it though it comes alive with a beautiful holographic shine

And finally we have a silver glitter in a clear base, which can be used as a cuticle accent gradient or as a wash of sparkle over the entire nail. You have to have some kind of actual full on glitter at this time of year I think!
