Top Winter Nail Polishes

With this upcoming winter season (though winter always feels like it should start December 1st), I thought I would share my guide to winter nail polishes. I have done a few posts like this in Fall and Spring, so I'm keeping up the momentum and sharing my polish picks for winter. Now, I do this a little differently from other top 10 posts by picking different categories and showing a variety of options. I hope this inspires you to "shop" from your collection and of course, find some new polishes to add to your wishlist.

 A classic choice for the holiday season.

Zoya Sooki A bright red creme.
Julep Coco A dark burgundy creme.
Wet 'n Wild Megalast Under your Spell A dark burgundy with red shimmers.
Zoya Blaze A burgundy with fine holographic glitters.
 China Glaze Ruby Pumps A super fine and dense red glitter.
Sephora by OPI Good Tidings We Bling! A red and green glitter with fine and hexagonal glitters.

A traditional evergreen shade.

Essie Stylenomics A blackened dark green creme.
Zoya PixieDust Chita A textured finish hunter green with silver sparkles.
Zoya Logan A forest green gold foil.
Julep Esmerelda An emerald green glitter polish with fine and hexagonal glitters.

The go-to shade any time of year.

Essie Midnight Cami A dark blue shimmer polish.
Urban Outfitters Mystic A dark blue with red/green duochrome flakes (dupe for DL's Ray of Light).

A dreamy winter winter wonderland.

Essie Butler Please A bright cobalt creme.
Zoya Dream A sapphire blue with fine holographic glitters.

Zoya Daul A foil finish gold/purple duochrome.
Zoya Aurora A bright purple with fine holographic glitters.
Zoya Payton A deep oxblood with fine holographic glitters.
