The Perfect Winter Polish Picks

favorite winter polish swatches

If the stormy weather we’ve had in the last couple of days in anything to go by, winter has definitely arrived. Lovely weather to curl up on the sofa with a lovely cup of tea or hot chocolate and do your nails in amazing winter shades. Let me show you my favorite six shades for this time of year.

Loreal Midnight Mistress

This deep dark blue manages to look sophisticated and works with almost any outfit. I prefer this over black myself.

Essie Stylenomics

This is such a deep green it almost looks black until the light catches it the right way. Again, a great chique variation on black nails.

Essie Go Overboard

One of my favorite new Essie shades, Go Overboard is a deep teal that looks much darker on the nail. A wonderful way to break up a monochrome outfit.

Essie Dress to Kilt

I love the name! Dress to Kilt is a dark cherry red that works exceptionally well this time of year in stead of a standard red polish.

Max Factor Glossfinity Raspberry Blush

A lovely berry shade that looks so good with my favorite berry lips and autumn blushes.

H&M Byzantium

Byzantium is a true purple shade that just looks so lovely with grey or blue.

I am clearly drawn to deeper shades of polish in rich jewel tones. To be honest, these shades are normally among my favorite polishes as well and I tend to wear them year round, but they never quite pop as they do this time of year. What are your favorite seasonal colors?


Het stormachtige weer van de laatste dagen is een duidelijk teken dat de winter er is. Fijn weer om lekker op de bank te zitten met een kopje thee of warme chocolademelk en je nagels te lakken in mooie diepe kleurtjes. Ik laat je mijn zes favoriete lakjes zien.

Loreal Midnight Mistress

Deze mooie diep blauwe kleur ziet er echt chique uit op je nagels en staat goed bij de meeste outfits. Ik vind dit net even mooier dan zwart.

Essie Stylenomics

Deze diep donkergroene kleur is bijna zwart totdat het licht op je nagels valt. Nog een elegante variatie op zwarte nagels.

Essie Go Overboard

Een van mijn favoriete nieuwe Essie kleurtjes, Go Overboard is een diepe blauw-groene kleur die op de nagel een stuk donkerder is dan in het flesje. Heel gaaf bij een zwart-witte look.

Essie Dress to Kilt

Zo’n leuke naam! Dress to Kilt is een kersenrode kleur, echt een leuke variatie op standaard rood in de winter.

Max Factor Glossfinity Raspberry Blush

Een mooie bessentint die leuk staat bij mijn favoriete lippenstiften en blushes van het seizoen.

H&M Byzantium

Byzantium is een echt paarse kleur die heel gaaf staat bij grijs of blauw.

Ik kies echt voor donkere tinten in rijke juweelkleurtjes. Als ik eerlijk bent zijn dat zowiezo mijn favoriete lakjes en draag ik ze het hele jaar door, maar ze springen er in de winter altijd wat meer uit. Wat zijn jouw favoriete seizoens-kleurtjes?

      I think the formula is excellent for the price πŸ˜€ Not quite Essie, but they are a bit more expensive.

    Byzantium looks awesome! I kind of neglected my nails lately… Just painted them with a dark colour from Dior forgot how it’s called, from last year’s Christmas collection! Not too picky with my nail polish anyway, FOR ONCEπŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…! I always wear what I feel like! 😊xx, Annie | Annie’s Beauty

      Oh smoky is a lovely color: I remember seeing that on your blog last year πŸ™‚
      I have been slacking a bit as well (they are still so short after all the DIY) but nothing like digging out some shades from the stash to get me going. xxx

            I don’t mind doing them if I have time and am just watching telly, but so stressful if you need to be somewhere quick. I am just not a patient girl πŸ˜‰

    I don’t have any of the polishes you showed but I have similar shades. I still rock my nudes most days but do pop on some deeper shades. This week I’m wearing Becca Billy Tea which is a milky chocolate shade. πŸ™‚

      Oh that sounds very nice as well. I am not really a nude nail kinda girl, I just haven’t been able to find ones that work well with my skin tone.
