Nails: Top 5 Winter Polishes 2019


As today is Yule, the Winter Solstice signalling the start of the official winter season I thought now would be a good time to share my top five winter polishes. Also today is the shortest day in the northern hemisphere, will be nice to have some actual daylight once again. I have done similar blog posts in previous years 2018 (here), 2017 (here) and 2016 (here).



A England Rose Bower, would it be a festive season without a red polish? This one leans pink and is holographic which adds something a bit different to your standard red cream polish.


Barry M Spearmint, as with a red a green is a traditional festive shade. This green is more of a muted cream which would make a nice base for some seasonal stamping.


A England Goth, so I was torn between a white and a black for this pick, I being me ended up going for the darker option. Goth is a very dark aubergine polish with holographic particles throughout. This would be nice for New Year's or even a festive event.


Nails Inc Sound of Sequins, a silver polish is also a good one for events and New Year's, this one is a metallic shimmer finish and nice if you don't want to opt for something darker like Goth.


Essie Hors d'oeuvres, for New Year's I think glitter is a traditional choice. This one is opaque in two coats, mainly silver glitter pieces in various sizes, also gold large hex glitters. Very glitzy and does catch the light when you wear it.

Nail Polish Battle 2017: Top Three

Having now gone through all of the various categories this post is pulling together all of those winners and then working out what are the top three polishes I have acquired in 2017.

Barry M - Cotton // Barry M - Holographic Lights // A England - Rose Bower // A England - Spirit of the Moors // Barry M - Copper Dreams // A England - In Robe and Crown 

Cotton is a great staple white, however useful it may be in my collection it isn't going to win this battle, it just isn't exciting enough.


Rose Bower, is a stunning vivid pink polish, I don't usually like pink polishes but this one is pretty special. Not special enough to win though, because it is ultimately still a pink.



Copper Dreams, a great autumnal duochrome but for me it isn't that extra bit special enough to make it to the top three.


And so the top three of 2017 are;

Holographic Lights // Spirit of the Moors // In Robe and Crown


One last post to come to find out what my top nail polish of 2017 is.

Nail Polish Battle 2017: Orange and Red

Today I am looking back over my orange and red polishes from this year, I have seven polishes for this category.

Barry M - Papaya // Barry M - Satsuma // Barry M - Blood Orange // A England - Gloriana // A England - Rose Bower // Nails Inc - Marylebone Lane // Leighton Denny - Infatuation

Firstly I began by selecting my top three;


Blood Orange is more of a red based polish than a orange as the name suggests. Vibrant and bright red cream polish.


Gloriana is a shimmer burnt orange type of shade which I really liked for autumn, and is very unique in my collection.


However out of the three I particularly liked Rose Bower, a rich berry holographic shade. Which is why Rose Bower ended up being the winner of this round.
