Alternative Winter Nail Polish Picks
When I think about the nail polishes that I have been reaching for recently, it seems I've been going for slightly non-conventional choices considering it is now winter. I've also been trying a few new brands to me and I'm quite impressed! Here's what I've been reaching for:
Look at this packaging! Something about Nailberry as a brand absolutely screams luxe. But unfortunately, this luxury is definitely reflected in the price of their polishes. So, when I was given the chance to try them through the LoveLula blogger programme, I was quick to jump on it. I chose the shade Blueberry which is a really lovely royal purple creme shade. It applies really beautifully and I can't help but feel a little fancy when I use it.
Little Ondine Karma
I only own a couple polishes from Little Ondine but they are not that new to me. I bought this last year and I have done a full review on this particular shade in the past. Karma is a really lovely teal shade that is super flattering on the nails. I really enjoy the formula of this shade (as long as it is used with the dedicated base/top coat), but I have experienced some inconsistency within the brand so I cannot speak for the performance of other shades. Little Ondine have a really innovative formulation so I would like to think their other shades work just as well as this one!
Maggie Anne Jasper*
Maggie Anne is another new to be brand, who offer 6-free gel effect nail polish in a variety of beautiful colours. I've been testing out these two shades and the gel effect top coat and loving all of them. Jasper has probably been my favourite; a slightly mauve nude shade. Totally unconventional for winter, but super pretty and professional-looking for work. I'm addicted to wearing this and I've just decided while writing this that I'm going to be applying it next!
Maggie Anne Pearl*
You can't really beat a plain black nail polish and I haven't owned one in years! This colour definitely looks more chic on long nails but the high-shine gel effect definitely helps with it looking a little more grown up than the black polish we wore to school. Just like Jasper, I really like the formula of this and I especially enjoy the size and shape of the brush. It totally reminds me of the Essie brush, something that I really used to get along with. I'm excited to possibly try some more shades from Maggie Anne in the future!
