I love changing my routine, wearing different products depending on the season. Not only the foundations which should be more hydrating in the cold season but also powders, eye shadow (l love wearing heavy smoky eyes in the winter while in the summer sometimes I don’t do any eye makeup at all) and of course nail polishes. I’ve got different favorites for every season and today I would like to share with you my top 5 winter nail polishes.
I’ve photoshopped the picture above…without doing it explicitly, it looks like there’s some frozen ice on it. In reality, the nail polishes look like this: Here I applied them all and added the names.
Let’s start with my pinkie.
1. MAC – Everything That Glitters
This is one of MAC’s previous limited editions. You can read the full review here. This is the polish for the winter time: the glitter reminds me of Christmas tree decoration and the almost black base is the color of the winter sky. It gets dark really early in the winter so this polish to me is a warm, cozy indoor winter evening with a nice scented candle, warm chocolate and Christmas tree!
2. NYC – Full Metal Jacket 002
The second polish fits perfectly for any party. I also use it a lot as an accent for one of the fingers or for any nail art tutorials. Actually, I use this polish a lot for nail tutorials! It so happens that I’ve done 3 nail tutorial for now and I used this polish for 2 out of 3 (hearts, double French manicure).
3. OPI – The Spy Who Loved Me
This polish is the most Christmassy of them all and probably my favorite nail polish ever! It’s so bright, red with golden glitter, it makes it so fancy! You can read the full review here.
4. Rimmel Lycra Pro – 400 Blue Vogue
This one is perfect for ‘any other winter day’. It’s so profound and dark, during a grey day it looks almost black. But under electrical light you can see the shimmer. It looks gorgeous with a matte top, too. But I love it the most in the days when the sun shines: there we can see the full beauty of the shimmer! I’m wearing Rimmel 400 Blue Vogue in this video.
5. Chanel Black Pearl 513
Black Pearl…so classy, stylish, it is perfect for a sophisticated night look. This is Chanel and it’s more than 1000 words.
Unfortunately this nail polish is an old limited edition, I’m not sure you can still find it. I do have another nail polish that looks a bit like Chanel Black Pearl 513: Essence 122 Chic Reloaded:
So here are my top 5 winter nail polishes! What are yours?
