Favorite winter/holiday nail polishes - Essie, OPI, China Glaze!

I have been putting aside writing this post for a long time but the time has finally come and today I took the time to do it properly :)

These are the polishes that I have been using the most for the last couple of weeks and I love them all. Here you can see them all together:

I have to say that these photos have been edited but only because the colors were very distorted  on the original pictures and not as vivid as they really are! So these are the most realistic images that I managed to pull off.

First color in this small set of mine is Essie: Parka Perfect and ever since I've seen this shade on other blogs I decided I had to have it, it is a beautiful cold-icey-blue shade which reminds me so much of winter weather and frosted scenery. It really is a parka perfect shade :)

Second up is a top coat - and that is the Seche VITE top coat, a perfect most amazing top coat you will ever use and probably have used - it dries INSTANTLY - and I mean it literally. The minute you are finished with top-coating your nails, the first one will already be dry! And it leaves a beautiful shine which really helps all the colors stand out. Highly recommended!

Third is my currently favorite shade from the new OPI by Mariah Carey holiday collection in the shade Silent Stars go By which is the first liquid sand polish I have ever tried and all I can say is - it is better than normal glitter polishes and with the aluminium foil method easy to remove as well. The color of this shade is a mix of silver and gold, and sometimes if under the right light it looks almost rosey gold. :)

Next up I have two pretty red shades to show you: Essie Twin Sweater Set and China Glaze Ruby Pumps - the latter one being one of the most popular CG shades of all time - it is a dupe of Essie's Ruby Slippers and it's a perfect holiday/christmas/festive shade - a beautiful red with lots of small sparkles!

Twin Sweater Set is a classic red shade with some pretty amazing shine to it, even without the top coat, so I would definitely recommend it for anyone who is trying to find the perfect red nail polish :)

Which of these have you tried or would like to try? Can you recommend any other polish shades for this winter? :)

  1. svi su prekrasni,,, ali najviše mi se sviđa ovaj zadnji Twin Sweather Set... i slatka su im imena :D naš idealan posao bi bio smišljat nazive za lakove hehe :D

  2. Da, slazem se skroz :D meni su bas svi nazivi posebni isto, zato ih jos vise volim :)

  3. Moja opsesija lakovima za nokte se (napokon) smirila, a sami nokti već nekoliko mjeseci prolaze kroz fazu oporavka. Trenutno ih mažem samo lakovima za jačanje jer su se dosta "napatili" u posljednjih nekoliko godina (imala sam ih običaj lakirati svaka 2 dana).

    Jako mi se sviđaju tvoji trenutni favoriti. Moram priznati da tijekom cijele godine više naginjem tamnijim nijansama jer nisam tip "od (upečatljivih) boja", a već neko vrijeme na listi imam Essie - After School Boy Blazer.

  4. To sam cula od dosta cura - da im notki stradavaju od previse lakiranja, srecom jos mi se to nije pocelo dogadjati, a isto imam lak uvijek na noktima. Mislim da ti je vitamin C odlican za oporavak nokti - pokusaj ih istrljati limunom/narancom ponekad...
    a sto se tice favorita, da, mene nekad puknu boje, nekad sivilo ali taj koji si spomenula je predivan <3! on mi je iduci na wish listi! :D

  5. Love every single one of your holiday picks for polishes! xx
