Winter nail varnish favourites

Whilst I love experimenting with nail varnish there are always a few colours that I gravitate towards, and after looking through my collection earlier this week, I wanted to share with you my top 5 favourite shades for the Winter season:

Winter nail varnish favourites
OPI pink yet lavender
Barry M dusky mauve
Nails Inc little miss chatterbox
Liz Earle pure poetry
Orly pink flakie topcoat

 Winter nail varnish favourites - natural daylight

Winter nail varnish favourites - with flash 

OPI pink yet lavender - A really gorgeous mix of fine silver glitter and chunky pink pieces. For such a chunky glitter polish the application was surprisingly even and the finish relatively smooth. Beautiful as a top coat over any colour, but especially darker blues and purples.

Barry M dusky mauve - The infamous Chanel Paradoxal dupe - I remember searching for this everywhere when it was first launched as it was sold out for weeks. In natural daylight it's a very dark mauve colour but add in some bright lights and it transforms into the most beautiful deep purple shade with just a hint of pink shimmer.

Nails Inc little miss chatterbox - For sophisticated daytime nails, you can't go wrong with a bit of taupey greige. Unfortunately this colour was limited edition, but for a good dupe I'd recommend Liz Earle ebb tide strengthening nail colour.

Liz Earle pure poetry - A really beautiful berry red shade - one of those classic colours that will always look super chic and goes with just about everything. Opaque in 2 coats, this was fast drying and bar a tiny bit of tip wear, long lasting too. It's also enriched with avocado and borage oils to help strengthen the nails.

Orly pink flakie - Finally a matte snowflake effect topcoat. Suspended in a clear polish, the flakies are densely packed and multi-coloured so gives the most beautiful effect when it catches the light. Like the OPI glitter it'll work over any nail varnish, but is truely stunning when paired with a deeper base colour.

Have you tried any of these nail varnishes? What would be your top picks?


  1. I want that OPI Polish. Ooooh. It looks like it should live in my nail polish stash! May have to browse the OPI stand once again! Oh dear... My purse is going to cry! Haha. Great selection of polishes by the way. The red one is stunning too. I would wear that one too! :)
