Just like the seasons, my favorite nail polish colors tend to change on a regular basis. Since we’re in the midst of winter, I felt it appropriate to update my picks accordingly! Lately I have an affinity for soft, glittery, and warm hues (very winter appropriate in my book). I’ve even thrown in some of my favorite trends of 2016—can you guess which ones they are? Keep scrolling to see which polishes I’ve been keeping on rotation this season…
Some days call for a barely-there, low maintenance kind of manicure, and I always gravitate toward pretty nude polishes with a slight hint of pink. My favorite pink beige has to be JINsoon’s Nail Lacquer in Nostalgia with Dolce & Gabbana’s Liquid Nail Lacquer in Pure Nude 103 being a close second.
Even though the holidays have come and gone, deep red still feels like winter to me. I like to keep a red polish on hand all year long (pun intended) since it’s one of my top favorites. A couple of my favorite wintery reds are Ciaté London’s Raising the Barre and Formula X’s Ignite.
Glitz and Glitter
I don’t think you should wait for special occasions to break out sparkly nail polish! Maybe I’m still riding a New Year’s Eve high, but I’m all about glitter. I’m always torn between loud and fun polishes like Deborah Lippmann’s Glitter Nail Polish in Candy Shop or a more reserved sparkle like Whim’s Bold Glitters Nail Lacquer in Endless Nights.
According to Pantone, this tranquil shade of blue is going to have a big moment in 2016. Not only does this color work well for your interior décor, but also looks sweet and simple on your fingernails. Right now I’m obsessed with Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel nail polish (no UV light required!) in the shade Sugar Fix.
Winter calls for a hint of shimmer, and metallic nail polish does just the trick. From bags to clothing and shoes, I’m hoping to see a lot of this trend throughout 2016. Since I’m smitten with mixed metallics, I’ll be rocking shades like Marc Jacob’s Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Polish in Petra. It’s the perfect combination of shimmer and bronze.
A girl has to have choices, am I right?
