Winter Nails at Look Fantastic!

Winter Nails at Look Fantastic

One of the things I love most about painting my nails is how creative you can be, I have to admit I’m a whole lot braver with my nails than I am with my make-up, I think you can get away with a lot more on the nails, I love matching my nails to the season and getting in the spirit of all different events and trends. So when the lovely people at Look Fantastic asked us to try out some new winter polishes they had available online  I was more than happy to share them with you guys!

Winter Nails at Look Fantastic

Nails Inc Brick Lane Graffiti Polish £11.00* 

I loved the effect this polish gave, it’s a really edgy monochrome finish, that gives a regular pretty polish a bit more of a punch. This will look amazing teamed with your favourite little black dress, and will really add a bit of drama to your nails. I love the matte finish of this, its like the edgy girls glitter!
The formula itself is really easy to apply, and one or two coats is all you need to create the cool effect. I’ve layered this over the Mavala polish I feature in this post, but I think it would look great with any colour! If you know anyone who loves having quirky nails, then this would be the perfect stocking filler! This polish is available at Look Fantastic.

Mavala Shimmer Violet Nail Colour £4.30*

This is seriously metallic heaven in a bottle! I usually tend to steer clear of metallic polishes as they can be a little too girlie for me, but this one is so rich and velvety that it was too hard to resist. The soft violet colour compliments any outfit choice and skintone and smooths on the nail like a dream. I loved it so much I used it at the base for the other two nail polishes I featured on this post. This has been the biggest hit with my friends and family too, my mums already pinched this and I know one of my friends has her eye on it too, so guess what they’ll be getting for Christmas! This polish along with lots of other gorgeous shades from Mavala is available at Look Fantastic.

Butter London Dodgy Barnett Nail Lacquer £12.00*

What girl doesn’t need a shimmery silver nail polish in her collection? This is a deliciously festive polish that adds a touch of winter sparkle to any run of the mill polish. It also looks lovely on it’s own creating a subtle silver sheen to the nails, but my favourite combination with this is over dark polishes, it creates such a grown up glamorous look. As with all Butter London polishes, the consistency is great and the packaging is super stylish, this is a great nail polish collection staple that every girl needs! This festive treat along with all the other shades from Butter London are available at Look Fantastic.

I loved trying these gorgeous polishes out, and I am sure you guys would love them too, I will definitely be adding a few more shades from each of these to my Christmas wishlist (hint hint santa)! Do you guys have any favourite winter polishes?
