When seasons change my nail colour picks update too and I lean more towards dark shades and a bit of glitter for those christmas parties. With a full time job I struggle to paint my nails as often as I like so longevity is also important when i'm picking a nail polish, so i'll discuss that as well as the shades in todays post.

I have a couple of these polishes in more summery shades so I was excited to receive more winter themed picks and ones I know i'll wear! The shades I got are Couture Covet, a dark blue with a moss green hint to it, and Silver Chrome, which as the name would suggest is a silver polish that has a chrome effect on your nails. This is called a weekly polish and I can say that these definitely last for a long time without chipping.

H&M nail polishes are some of my favourite polishes and I have quite a few in my collection but this shade is a favourite of mine. This shade is a dark brown almost black shade, I love wearing black polish but sometimes it can be a little too harsh and this toned down dark brown is perfect. These polishes last for ages when I wear them and they have a curved brush that helps get right into the nail bed.

A chunky gold glitter is a must for me during the festive season as it is the perfect party nail. This is a real chunky glitter so obviously a nightmare to remove but it has such a pretty effect. I like layering this over a white or pale pink nail to really enhance the glitter or on top of a red for that festive look.

These are some of my favourite polishes but purely for how pretty the bottles look, they definitely have a higher end look to them but are so adorable. The range of polishes have a number of pretty shades all with a high shine finish. My favourite shade for this time of year is Greige Amoureux, which is a steel grey shade. I find that these although last for a good amount of time and don't chip quickly.

A bit different to the rest of the shades in this post but I had to include a pink shade as I still love it even when it's not summer. This is a muted rose pink shade that is nice and natural for every day use. I find that the Kiko polishes need a few coats to be fully opaque but they last a while with a good top coat.

This was part of a trio I got from Primark but its the perfect gold for the festive season. The muted gold chrome shade can be worn on its own or over another polish. Unfortunately I really wasn't impressed with the formula of these, they are watery and need a good few layers and it chips easily.

What are your top winter nail picks?



  1. Dark berry shades are my fav to coat my nails with when winter and autumn come round. I love your picks too! It’s always nice to add a bit of sparkle with glitter!

  4. H&M Nail Polishes are some of my favourites too - they're such good quality and the shade range is great. I don't actually have a glitter polish for the festive season so may check out Essie Summit of Style!
