Festive Nail Polishes 2016!

img_8649Hello everyone, 

I hope you are all well and are having a fab festive filled weekend! As Christmas is just around the corner, (less than one week away!!) I thought I would share with you some festive nail polishes that I have been loving to wear this season on the run up to Christmas and New Year! I hope you enjoy my lovelies…

img_8645Whenever I get an opportunity to paint my nails, I always love doing them even if it initially goes wrong! I must admit, I do have those moments where you accidentally smudge a nail and you just want to give up but never the less, I always look forward to painting my nails and experimenting with different designs and colours! Especially around this time of year, I always find it a struggle picking out a nail polish to paint my nails with as I know I have way too many to choose from! If you are like me and are stuck for what shade or design you want to go for this season, here are some of my personal festive nail polish faves…

Festive Nail Polishes 2016:


Last Christmas I was kindly gifted one of the lovely Tanya Burr’s nail sets which contained three of her nail polishes which I still love and use! Since then Tanya has released new products to her range including her nail polishes which now have the latest new packaging so the ones I have are in the old packaging. I have linked both the set and the latest nail polishes above which still come in the same shades that I have just in newer packaging!

After my ramble about packaging, the actual polishes themselves are high quality which I was quite surprised at! I also think the names of her products are so well thought of which makes the polishes that extra bit more special! For Christmas, I have been loving wearing the red shade ‘Mischief Managed‘ as a base topped with the very glamorous sparkly shade ‘Fireworks‘ on top. Usually with nail polishes that add glitter, I find that they don’t always end up adding many pieces of the glitter onto my nails but this one along with the others I’m going to talk about is an exception! With one stoke of using this, my nail had plenty of the sequins/glitter applied which was fab! Using a clear, glittery top coat makes sure that the polish underneath doesn’t chip while making your nails look extra fab!!

The next nail polish that I think is great for the festive season is this Barry M nail paint in the shade ‘Christmas Tree.‘ The clue is in the name that this polish was made for Christmas so I couldn’t not mention it in this post!

You may or may not know that Barry M is one of or my most favourite brand of nail polishes so having Christmas in a nail polish, for me is amazing!! I got this last year and so this is no longer available in store but I have linked one above that I found online. This nail polish also came in another shade ‘Jingle Bells‘ which is equally as gorgeous! Again, Barry M nail polishes always last for a good amount of time and overall this definitely has to be my favourite festive nail polish that I own!


Moving onto some of Seventeen’s nail polishes, the shades ‘Dark Heart‘ and ‘Winter Coat‘ are also some of my favourite nail polishes to wear around this time of year. Similar to the Tanya Burr polishes, I like to wear the classic red shade as a base and then the gold glitter shade on top which I think is a nice festive combination! These polishes are exclusively to Boots so if you can get your hands on these, I would definitely recommend!

Finally this H&M nail polish in the shade ‘Party In Pink‘ is a nice alternative to add on top of a nail varnish to add a festive touch as it is a pink glitter polish instead of the classic red, gold and green colours. I can’t remember exactly when I got this but unfortunately  I couldn’t find it online but if you can get hold of anything similar, I think a pink polish is a nice alternative idea which you could also wear for a Christmas party or New Year!

That brings me to the end of this weeks post! Thank you so much for reading as always and I hope you enjoyed this post! Comment what your favourite festive nail polish is to wear around this time of year?? and I’ll see you in my next post!

Much Love, Amelia xx
