Today I wanted to talk about a few of the nail polishes that I’ve been reaching for lately. In winter, I definitely gravitate towards darker, moody colors. Every once in a while, I’ll break up my dark streak with a lighter color and during the festivities last month I was all about that sparkle.
Essie Barefoot in Blue (similar)- This is a nail polish that I won (I think?). It was created in a collaboration between Essie and TOMS. It’s a dusty cornflower blue and I think it’s a color that looks great in spring or winter.
Julep Quinn– When I find a color that’s different from everything else in my collection, I get pretty excited. This is a muted purple-grey nail polish with a satin finish. I don’t think I’ve ever really seen a color like this, so I think this nail polish is very interesting.
Rimmel Salon Pro Red Award– I’m still not over these deep reds for fall/winter. I love the formula of this polish and if you want to learn more, you can check out my previous beauty fave post.
Joe Fresh Navy (similar)- When I first discovered Joe Fresh a couple of years ago, I was surprised to find out that they also carry some beauty products. Their nail polishes were 3/$10, so of course I had to buy a few and try them out. I think the quality of these is good and I love a good navy blue.
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Wedding Glitters– During the month of December, I pretty much only wore glitter polishes on my nails. For two weeks I used Formula X Wham!, but when I traveled home for Christmas I didn’t take any nail polish with me. I was browsing Walgreens for a hair dryer and I spotted this pretty gold shimmer (Typical. I basically can’t go into the drugstore without buying a nail polish.). It’s eye-catching and also great because it’s contains fine glitter, instead of chunky glitter that’s a pain to remove.
