Nail Polish Battle 2020: Pink and Red

As it is December, it is time for my annual nail polish battle. I find it interesting to look back over the year at the new polishes I have acquired and seeing which ones are my favourites.

Since last years nail polish battle I have 67 new nail polishes which is 15 more than last year. Today I am looking at pink and red ones.

It wasn't too difficult to choose my top three because pink isn't my favourite colour. My photo doesn't seem to be all that colour accurate for some reason but the individual swatch photos are more accurate.

Barry M - French Rose // OPI - All About the Bows // Rimmel - Bold Burgundy

All About the Bows is a very bright almost neon pink shade, a good summer shade.

Bold Burgundy is almost the opposite to the OPI, a deep burgundy shade. Something I reach for more in the autumn and winter.

And the winner of the pink and red battle is; French Rose. Surprising as it it lighter, but it is dark enough on my skin tone to not look like a nude polish.
