To say I’m obsessed with nail polish might be a bit of an understatement. Nail polish was my first love and it’s probably the beauty product I cannot live without. I don’t stick to a certain color range or shade, I like to be adventurous with my nail polish selection (though my friends will tell you nude polish has a special place in my heart). Here are my current winter favorites:
Maybelline Color Show in Audacious Asphalt: This is what’s currently on my nails and I’m loving it. I have a love/hate relationship with light gray nail polish, there’s always something I wish was different about the color. Whether I want it a little lighter, darker, or to have a higher opacity I’m constantly searching for my flawless light gray shade. With Audacious Asphalt I believe I have found it, it’s just perfect. It is a light gray with a subtle hint of light blue. Every time I wear it I just think to myself “I’ve been searching for you all my life”.
Essie Nail Lacquer in Miss Fancy Pants: No clue as to why I adore this nail polish as much as I do. It’s a mauve gray-nude color with a hint of purple, nothing crazy but it is amazing. This is actually an old time favorite polish; I wore this all of last winter (I was greatly obsessed). Miss Fancy Pants is one of those shades that goes with any occasion and complements any style. Its versatility is what draws me to this shade so often.
L’Oreal Colour Riche Nail in Haute Couture Red: I find this color to be sophisticated and it might be the name, but without a doubt this shade of burgundy is gorgeous. Haute Couture Red is a burgundy shade with a bit more of brown mixed in. This is my night out shade. I like mixing this mysterious color with a fun outfit it creates a great balance. It also receives a lot of attention; people are always wondering what is on my nails when wearing it.
Julep Nail Color in Char: Last but definitely not least this great true blue shade. I always found that darker shades of blue nail polish don’t show enough of their blue color. Char is a Navy blue color that has this bright blue look to it. It’s dark enough for winter and light enough to see the actual blue color. A great find for those looking to wear bright blue nail polish during the winter months.
Hope this helped you discover some new favorite nail polish colors. Be sure to let me know what your go-to winter shades are.
