Nail polish galore for the Season to be jolly, lalalalaaa!

Your festive makeup really isn’t complete without nail polish. Pretty nails will take your carefully designed look to the next level and since there’s such an overwhelming choice on the market now, here’s some inspiration.

In the Essie Winter collection, you’re sure to find an array of colors with a creamy, pearly or glittery finish. I’ve discovered some out of the ordinary shades like social-lights, a glittery slate grey with a warm amber-colored hue, and ring in the bling, a ruby red with a touch of pearly marine blue.

If you’re more into nudes, you might like the sandy beige suit & tied, or choose one of the Essie Wild Nudes, a collection of deep nude earthy shades, which was launched this autumn. Finish with the fast-drying top coat Essie Speed-setter to make your pretty nails last longer.

For long lasting hold without fussing about UV-lamps, the trusty Essie gel couture is now available in holiday collection colors, inspired by Parisian glam.

This festive range features a sparkly, barely-there diamond in the cuff, a pearly, almost holographic gold gilding, a jade green, a creamy classic rue de la ruby red, a purplish red and amethyst noir, a striking dark violet.

US brand Sally Hansen launched their Miracle Gel in some festive shades. My favorites are the classic deep red Can’t Beet Royalty and Wine Stock, a daring but stylish burgundy. Long lasting, glossy color is easy to obtain.

No base coat needed, just apply two layers of your favorite Miracle Gel color and finish with the fast-drying Miracle Gel Top Coat to seal it.

Merry colours on your nails,
Peggy
