I feel like when it comes to seasonal nail polish, I don’t always play by the rules. I mean, what is a typical cold weather nail polish shade and why do I have to listen – right!? To me, these are the shades that I like to wear when it’s cold. I thought you might be interested to see incase you want to mix it up a little bit.

Essie Island Hopping is a colour that I have been on the hunt for way too long. I’ve been looking for a pastel maroon shade for what seems like forever and I’m so happy that I found one by Essie. The formula of Essie nail polishes is definitely my favourite which I guess is no surprise as half of the nail polishes in this post are Essie, right? Island Hopping only needs two coats to be fully pigmented and stunning.
Essie Flowerista* is described as a plummy purple. I feel like it’s a pretty unique version of purple and purple is my favourite colour, so I’m definitely a sucker for this shade. When it’s warmer, I prefer more pastel purples but when its cooler, I like a more pigmented pick me up sort of purple, and this is it.
Essie Sole Mate* is probably the only kinda typical winter shade here. It is my favourite deep red wine nail colour. I own quite a few deep reds but this one just seems super classy to me. The only thing that I don’t like about this shade is that it can get a little messy when you remove it because the colour is so rich.
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Dig Fig* is on the darker side of red, but still bright, rich and pigmented. The formula lasts such a long time. I personally love this shade because most of the jumpers and cardigans that I wear are fairly neutral in colour. When I get in the jumper mood, I feel like this nail polish adds that nice subtle touch to my outfit.
Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish in Violet Vogue* is more blue than violet to me, but hey just a shade name! This is a gorgeous rich blue shade that I can’t stop reaching for. I definitely think Maybelline nail polishes are underrated and their lasting power is actually pretty incredible. Especially when you pair their polishes with their Dr Rescue Top & Base Coat. Try it out and thank me later.
Last up, Revlon Parfumerie Moonlit Woods. I went absolutely crazy for this nail polish when it came out. The nail polishes actually smell like a legitimate perfume. Say goodbye to stinky fumes! This colour is a gorgeous light blue with a silver sheen to it. It’s one of those polishes that look different under various types of light and I usually get a few sneaky compliments when I wear it.
