I am still stuck in FLU LAND and am one with the bed. While I hate sitting in bed all day, there are some little things that cheer me up and make this awful time pass quicker. I can drink hot chocolate and catch up with my reading, indulge in a little Netflix marathon (currently obsessed with Marco Polo) and paint my nails. I saw a lot of people write posts about their favourite nail polishes when it comes to the holidays, so I decided to share my top 5 picks with you. Now, you may be surprised to see burgundy shades in here, but everything comes with an explanation.
My number one pick has to be this gorgeous glittery gold from Ciate, in shade Sand Dune! What I love most about this is the fact that the shimmer is not over the top, you can get away with wearing it on a daily basis. While it looks fantastic on its own, I want to wear it as a top coat on a regular gold polish, to make it stand out. Or I`m thinking of combining it with a metallic one: crazy idea or genius combo, we`ll see about it. Anyway, a fantastic and versatile colour that just screams Christmas!
My second pick is actually a combination of 2 nail varnishes. I love blue shades, I think they really stand out on my pale skin and I can`t get enough of them. At the moment, I can`t stop but reach towards Nail Rock Glitter Dust, a great navy nail polish. While I love wearing it on its own, I decided to upgrade it for Christmas, so on top I used OPI`s Viking In a Vinter Vonderland (how cute is the name, huh?) I think the result makes a great holiday duo, the pictures don`t do it justice, because I was in a hurry.
My third choice is from a brand I did not know anything about until I saw it featured in one of my Glossyboxes. That brand is called All That Jazz and it instantly makes me think about pin-up girls, but I considering the names of the nail polishes I don`t think I`m the only one. This little baby here is called Roxie`s Hart and even though you can`t see properly from the pictures, it`s a stunning red. I know most of the people prefer only shimmery nail polishes this time of the year, but red is always a classy choice, one that you can`t go wrong with.
Another favourite of mine this time of the year is Uptown Glamour, a shade from Nails Inc. collaboration with Kate Spade. I think this is a shade you can wear anytime, but to be honest, I am not that confident wearing it in July for example, it`s too much for my taste. Now, I am really bad with describing colours, but to me, this looks like a metallic champagne gold shade. Very pretty and long-lasting considering it`s from Nails Inc, one of the best brands when it comes to nail polishes.
My last pick is this gorgeous burgundy from Nails Inc. again, a beauty called Hanover Square. While some people might not find it very festive, when I wear it, it makes me think of mulled wine and cranberry sauce, so on the festive list it goes.
So these are my most used nail polishes this time of the year. Which ones are yours? Any good recommendations?
