Midweek Manicure // Favourite Festive Nail Polishes

November 26, 2014

Squeeee, it’s less than a month till Christmas now Pickles! And you know what they means… CHRISTMAS THEMED NAILS HURRAH!!! I decided that before we get going with lovely holiday nail art I’d give you a peek at some of my favourite festive polishes.



red-glitter-nailsModels Own Scarlett Sparkle 

This is one of my all time Christmas crackers. It’s red, it’s sparkly, it’s just perfect!

Nails Inc for In Style Electric Teal

I love a green nail at Christmas time as it’s a bit more of a subtle and sophisticated choice than red. This Nails Inc colour is a gorgeous deep blue toned green.

OPI Spark De Triomphe

This is the first OPI nail polish I ever bought and I love how it is just jam packed with pretty glitter particles. It changes from silver to gold depending what light it shines in, making it really versatile.


Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolors Hard Kourt Fashionista

This is a really unusual and pretty deep purple / chocolate brown colour. It’s lovely at this time of year when dark AW colours can be worn and has a nice richness running trough it making it softer than black.

Barry M Matte Nail Paint Crush

I love this polish! It’s a lovely deep red and the matte finish always looks really smart and is a nice contrast with the soft knitwear I usually wear at this time of year.

Ciate Paper Doll

This is literally powdered snow in a polish! So pretty and as with the Barry M matte red, it’s nice to have a contrasting nail texture.

Models Own Hed Kandi Ibiza Mix

Despite the fact this polish is part of the Summer Ibiza range it just screams Christmas to me! A clear polish filled with green, silver, gold and pink chunky glitter bits it reminds me so much of Christmas tree decorations! This is really lovely layered over the Nails Inc Electric Teal.

    I have a bluesky gel polish called Diamond Storm that's absolutely gorgeous with snowflakes stamped on top! Anything sparkly and red is always good too.
