With the festive season in full swing I've been rummaging around in my nailpolish collection to pick out my favourite nailpolishes that I now want to share with you.
China Glaze Ruby Pumps:
My first favourite is China Glaze Ruby Pumps which I only recently got. I'ts my first China Glaze nailpolish and I really like it. I love it's fine glitter and the ruby red colour which I think looks quite elegant and wintery. It is opaque in two coats and looks even nicer with a clear top coat to make it extra shiny.
Barry M Nailpaint in Red Glitter:
I bought this on recommendation of my friend Alice from Pretty Wonderful and it is just the perfect red glitter for me and looks oh so christmassy. It is slightly lighter than the China Glaze one and the glitter is chunkier too.
I like applying it on top of a plain red nailpolish to make it more opaque (another tip from Alice). As with most glitter polishes it takes some time,patience and quite a few cotton wool pads and nailpolish remover to get it off again but for me it's so worth it. With a price of under 3 Euros it's a bargain aswell.
P2 Color Victim in Free to be:
First of all I have to say that this one was incredibly hard to photograph and the pictures don't do it justice. It is a beautiful dark emerald green with a nice shimmer which makes it look very nice and wintery. I love how quickly it dries and it is fairly opaque in one coat although I prefer two coats just to make it look perfect.
P2 Color Victim in Next exit-Party:
As you can see from the pictures, this is a beautiful gold colour with some very fine glitter and a nice shimmer to it. I think the name next exit:party is very suitable because the first thing I thought when I saw it was that it would be a great colour to wear for a new years eve party. It is very easy to apply and dries very quickly aswell, leaving the nails looking great and almost like covered in golden metallic foil.
Essie Beyond Cozy:
Last but not least is Essie beyond cozy which was part of the 2012 Winter Collection. Again the pictures don't do this beautiful colour any justice. Depending on the lighting the chunky glitter looks either golden or silver and is one of the sparkliest nailpolishes I know. It applies like a dream but is a pain in the bum to remove (but I don't care ;-))
As you might be able to see on the picture, I've already used up about a third of the bottle and I will be very sad once I used it up. If any of you know any dupes for this please let me know.
So these were my top 5 festive nailpolishes. Let me know which are yours this season.
Merry Christmas to all of you. :-)
