FRIDAY FAVORITE - Winter Nail Polishes

winter nail polish


I have a horrible habit of picking my nails and cuticles, especially when I’m stressed out.  It’s a problem and I’m trying to stop.  Well over the years I have accumulated a pretty sizable nail polish collection hoping the beautiful colors and finishes would help me kick my bad habit to the wayside.  And while my plan has not always worked, the nail polish hues I present below are so gorgeous I won’t even think of letting my bad habit rear it’s ugly head.  So I’ve picked six of my all time favorite nail polishes for winter for this week’s Friday Favorite.  I hope you enjoy my selections, and leave me a comment below letting me know your favorite winter nail polish!

Essie Hot Coco - This shade is a gorgeous winter color, a warm cozy light brown with grey undertones.  It seriously goes with everything and looks gorgeous on everyone.  Now is it really the color of Hot Coco? ehhh I would beg to differ.  This has a lot more grey undertones, which I’m guessing probably wouldn’t be appetizing in a hot beverage.

OPI Malaga Wine - Love me a deep berry shade.  OPI hits all the marks with this one delivering a classic deep red/burgundy that you just can’t go wrong with.  I like to wear deeper reds this time of year and this will look gorgeous on those manicured hands attending holiday parties.

Essie Marshmallow- It took me so long to hunt down the perfect white nail shade and in Essie’s Marshmallow I have found it.  This color is opaque, but not chalky and goopy looking and it’s a great staple shade to have in any nail polish collection.  It’s perfect for this time of year and considering how pale I am currently my hand and nails will probably just blend into the snow wearing this one.  



Essie No More Film - I feel so cool when I wear this one.  My cool factor probably just went down about 10 points because I just said that, but anyways I adore this navy shade.  It’s deep and mysterious and the formula is so opaque and long lasting.

Butter London Muggins - I am obsessed with this color.  Is it lilac? Is it grey?  We don’t know, but it’s fabulous.  This is such a chic shade and these Butter London nail polishes stay on foreverrr.  Seriously obsessed, you need this nail polish.

Nicole By OPI on a Gilt Trip - I am usually not a fan of glitter nail polish, but I got this lacquer in a recent Ipsy bag and was pleasantly surprised with how evenly it applied.  You can totally wear this on it’s own and the gold glitter evenly coats the nail.  It’s so gorgeous and festive!

And those are my picks for my favorite winter nail polishes.  I hope you had an absolutely amazing holiday and were able to spend it with those you love.  Thank you for stopping by and leave me a comment letting me know your favorite nail varnish of the moment!

  2. YAY thank you for doing this post!! Weirdly I have like 3 of these polishes already (we have such good taste Nicole). I think I definitely need the butter london one - I have a light blue by Essie (find me an oasis) and it's toooooo light blue and has a touch of sparkle, which i do not love. I also just got "devil's advocate" by Essie (it's like a dark, dark, dark, dark, dark maroon kind of? makes me feel like a witch). Ooo I got a set of OPI minis for Christmas and there are a few that I'm pumped to try out!

  4. Oh, I need that Muggins shade! I'm fond of Essie's beige/grey myself, and I love ambiguous colors that require passersby to squint at my nails out of interest.
