Friday Favourites | Top Six Winter Nail Varnishes

So over the winter I have been loving my dark reds and berry shades as well as some sparkly festive glitter.  This applies to my nails especially. For this post I have chosen my 6 favourite nail varnishes for this winter, I have tried to choose a variety of different shades to show you guys. 

First up are my beloved berry shades. Just look at them... Beautiful!
I absolutely love Essie nail varnishes, they last for an age without chipping, and come in a massive range of colours. They are around £7.99 from boots, however, I think they are worth spending that little bit more, and they come in a good sized bottle. The colours that I have been loving are Angora Cardi which I think will also be nice for the Summer, and Fishnet Stockings, which you could wear all year around. This is my staple red nail varnish, and I have done a review in my recent 'Manicure Monday' post.
I have also been loving two shades from Topshops Matte Nails collection. The shade Dress Up above, and Light Drizzle in the photograph below. They are both gorgeous, dark colours which I have been loving this season.  I used to think that grey nail varnish was boring, but it actually looks lovely on your nails and really stands out. While I love these colours, I must say that I wasn't really impressed I with the formula of these polishes! I love my matte lipsticks and polishes at the moment, so was excited to try these. The polish does last a long time, however, it does not stay matte. The matte layer on top just rubs off within a couple of hours. I was pretty disappointed to say the least. But none the less I still love the colours and will continue to wear them. I think these were £6 from Topshop. Not really worth the extra pound for a matte finish when you could get one of their normal varnishes for £5.

Now of course I had to involve a glitter polish in this post! This one I have reached for numerous times and it is Stunning from Revlon. I actually got this for free before Christmas because I spent over a certain amount on Revlon products. I love this polish, and it is surprising easy to get off considering that it is a glitter polish. I look forward to next winter when I will start wearing this again!
Last but not least I am loving this lovely deep green/blue colour from Gold by Giles, a collection which you can find in New Look. This cost me a pound which is an absolute bargain. I will not go into detail about this varnish, because I have already reviewed it, here

What colours have you been loving during the winter season?
