#theWinterProject | Winter Nail Polish

I was a little late to the party with the So project but I joined in the last few weeks and I really enjoyed it. It was nice having a subject there already for us to write about.

So now we have a new tag to keep us inspired. 

#thewinterproject has been started by Kellie with a lovely winter theme taking us through November to Christmas day. Seeing the line up of posts it makes me realise how close Christmas actually is!

I love this tag as I'm not much of a winter fan if I'm honest and this might be a way to take notice of the small things I enjoy about the season, who knows I might even be converted!

This week is about Winter nail polish.


When I saw this was the first post  I was a bit stumped. I have so many favourite nail polishes and they can easily be replaced by a simple offer in Boots and a lack of will power! I'm so fickle!

But I narrowed it down to these...

Nails Inc Kate Spade -New York Noir

I Love a black nail polish, It looks better when my nails are a little shorter really and I always add a glossy top coat as for me black looks best when it's super shiny! This was free with Glamour this month which was great for me as my black was getting a bit gloomy so it was perfect timing!


Barry M Textured Glitter Nail Paint -Duchess
I picked this up last week and have worn it mainly as an accent nail or on the tips but it's lovely as an all over colour too, perfect for Christmas. I love the pinky-toned glitter rather than the usual golds or silvers.


Essie -Bahama Mama
This is a new polish for this season and it's a great berry colour. Annoyingly I prefer the colour it gives with just one coat but it needs two coats for a better coverage. It's still a nice shade for autumn/winter -just not what I'm after.


Barry M -Mushroom
This is an old polish of mine that I rediscovered when going to buy an OPI shade that looked very similar. I often buy new shades almost identical to ones I already have without realising, I think that's why I have so many! Taupe colours are really in this season and I think this shade suits everyone.


Revlon - 680 Revlon Red
One thing I love about Revlon polishes is that the colours are written on the top, it makes it so much easier to find them! I love a red polish but it can sometimes seem a bit much, especially when my nails are on the long side. But I think red always looks lovely on toenails and this is my favourite shade of red.


If you are involved in the winter project please leave your link. I love seeing other people nail polish collections!
