Nails: Top 5 Winter Polishes 2022

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 2021 (here), 2020 (here), 2019 (here), 2018 (here), 2017 (here) and 2016 (here).

Pudding Lane - I seem to wear more white during winter than summer, either way its a good base for snow based nail art. This is an off white cream finish polish.

St. George - A good dark green holo polish.

You're on Sapphire - A dark blue shimmer, quite an icy shade.

Nail Polish Swatch Orly You're on Sapphire

Berry Cosmo a dark purple but clearly is a purple not a black, cream finish polish.


 Naughty - And finally a deep oxblood cream polish, winter is a time I reach for dark polishes more often.

Nail Polish Battle 2022: Blues

Today's battle is blue polishes, and I have 11 to whittle down.

Not sure what happened to the photo of the top three, I've picked two flakies and one magnetic;

The first to go was Ecstasy, while I really like it using a magnetic takes some effort to use whereas flakies aren't so much effort.

In second place is Minty Fresh, it is a light blue base with blue metallic flakies. It is very unique within my collection.

So the winner of the blues is Stolen Flame, it is more of a blurple than a standard blue and is packed with flakies and micro holo glitters.

November is Diabetes Awareness Month and so every Friday to raise awareness I am doing blue nails.

Type one diabetes can be diagnosed at any age, are you aware of the four T's?
