Festive Nails

Hey Guys,

Christmas is so getting so close so I thought I would share with you my options for festive nails. Just a bit of a forewarning, I own absolutely no glitter nail polish, whilst it looks amazing it is an absolute pain to take off and a year or so ago I threw away all my glitter nail polish and have not bought any since. Obviously glitter nail polish is a great choice during Christmas time and if I owned any I would share it with you in this post however I only own a few nail polishes with little bits of glitter in them. So this post is more of the options that I have for festive nails! 

One obvious choice for festive nails is red nails. I actually was unaware that I owned so many red nail polishes as it is typically not a colour I will wear. I have a few options to choose from, going from deep wine reds to vibrant red orange almost colours.

First up we have a nail polish from O.P.I in the shade Malaga Wine (RRP $19.95 AU) which is a lovely deep red wine shade. I absolutely adore this shade and whilst it is more of a winter time colour than summer I think it fits perfectly for this festive season. Another wine red I own is the Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in shade Wine to Five (RRP $6.95 AU). This shade is ridiculously similar to my O.P.I one but I prefer the formula of the O.P.I nail polish, this is a great cheaper alternative however. The next nail polish I have to show you is the SinfulColors Nail Colour in shade GOGO GIRL (RRP $4 AU). In the bottle this looks like a very vibrant red colour however when painted on the nails it starts to lean a little bit towards pink. This is a very thin formula and it does take a few coats to build up to opaque. Another similar colour to the SinfulColors nail polish is the Maybelline New York Color Show Nail Lacquer in shade 250 Keep Up the Flame (RRP $5.95 AU). This colour leans towards pink and the formula is quite thin so does require layering. The last red shade I have to show you is the Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel in the shade China Flower (RRP $15.95 AU). This is one is a gorgeous red that leans slightly towards orange which is great for my skin tone. This one also smells nice so there is that added bonus!

Another shade choice for festive nails that I own is green. Whilst these colours are not exactly green (more turquoise) I am sure no one will be disappointed.

First up is another Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel in the shade Wintermint (RRP $15.95 AU). Finally we have some glitter polish, this is a turquoise shade with blue square glitter particles floating in it. This smells like mint and is such a lovely colour. The other green (not really) shade I have to share with you is Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in shade Mint Mojito (RRP $6.95 AU). This is another turquoise shade however this one is quite bright in comparison.

I think come Christmas day, O.P.I's Malaga Wine will be on my nails. What festive nail polish do you plan on wearing?

  1. I just did a festive nail post featuring China Flower. I love the colour and the formula! You have some nice reds here. True greens don't really suit my skin tone I reckon so I reserve them for nail art.
    Merry Christmas!
