As much as I love the bright, citrus hues of Spring and Summer, I always look forward to the darker, burnt out shades that Winter fashion brings. My favourite nail polishes are a massive part of this and are also a means of incorporating some much-loved sparkle into an outfit, ready for the party season! Today, I've chosen a handful of my go-to colours that I wear most regularly throughout the colder months...
Leighton Denny 'Best Seller' | Essie 'Tea and Crumpets'
To begin with, let me introduce you to my favourite 'evening' varnishes. Christmas gives us all the excuse to wear red and gold and my favourite 'Christmassy' red is Leighton Denny's 'Best Seller'. This is a beautiful deep crimson colour, with glitter that sparkles when it catches the light - perfect for this season's big events and also the nail varnish that I will be wearing on Christmas Day! Then, Essie's 'Tea and Crumpets' is my go-to nude. It's a gorgeous lacquer with a gold sheen running through it, so I do tend to wear this in the day time too. However, for a slightly more glamorous look, it also looks beautiful with a layer of gold glitter over it - for those who want some extra sparkle! Accessorize do a fab one.
Essie 'Licorice' | No7 'Damson Dream' | MaxFactor 'Amethyst'
In terms of day time, I'm loving black nails at the moment. They go with anything and always look winter-chic. Then, for a more burnt-out Autumnal feel, I go to 'Damson Dream' from No7 or 'Amethyst', which is part of MaxFactor's new Glossfinity Range. All of these nail polishes are affordable and also to a very high standard - highly pigmented and will not instantly chip. I absolutely love every single one of them and find myself tossing up on which one to use, whenever I go to paint my nails! Maybe one for each finger?!
