The Party Polishes









If you can't wear full-on glistening glitter nails for Christmas then I'm not really sure when you can. But if like me, you'd prefer to be a little more subtle with your sparkle then stick to the good old accent finger with a complimentary shade on your remaining nails. With the festive season only round the corner I had a good dig through my polish pile to decide which ones would soon be adorning my finger tips...

My first pick, Revlon Facets of Fuchsia speaks for itself, a deep purple base with fuchsia micro glitter amongst larger hexagonal pieces - paired over a black or aubergine shade it's a winner. With Nails Inc fast becoming on of my favourite varnish brands mainly thanks to Baker Street, how could one of their own not make the cut? Electric Avenue is a true silver glitter, definitely adding a touch of shimmer to any outfit. The latest to hit my stash is OPI The Living Daylights and was the only one to really grab my attention from the Skyfall Collection. A transparent base with silver, gold, burnt orange and teal hexagon shaped chunks which just 'polishes' off any look layered once over another shade or a double coat for ring finger perfection. Another pick had to be Deborah Lippmann's Razzle Dazzle, a deep raspberry filled to the brim with minuscule magenta specks and looks stunning on, not to mention these get an award for the cutest bottles!

Lastly, with Christmas written all over it is Nails Inc Chelsea Embankment, the gold version of Electric Avenue. It looks amazing worn one every nail without being too much of a glittery overkill. All of this glimmering goodness may make you want to run a mile regarding the removal process, but with a base or colour underneath and with the help of the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover it should be a bit more of a breeze!

  4. I would probably only do an accent nail because it's not really 'me' to be so glittery, but I A-D-O-R-E the Revlon shade. Very pretty xx

  10. LOVE the Revlon polish! May need to go out and buy that, thanks a lot ;)
    I really love polishes with lots of glitter instead of really sparse glitter... I find them hard to find!
