On My Favourite Winter Nail Polishes

Over the past few months I've become completely addicted to Lily Pebbles' and ViviannaDoesMakeup's youtube channels. Aside from this leading me to spend a lot more money than I usually would on make up, it's got me back into painting my nails and actually making a bit of an effort with them. Both Lily and Anna rave about essie nail polishes and, having bought a couple over the past few months, I can totally see why - the brushes are fab and the quality of the nail polish is amazing - a win-win situation in my eyes!

Anyway, since I've been trying these out a lot over the past few months, I thought I'd share my favourite three essie nail polishes that I think are perfect for winter. And if, like me, you still haven't ticked off all of your Christmas shopping (that's what the last few days before Chrismas are for, right??), then I think an essie nail polish would make a great stocking filler. 

1 // Eternal Optimist - This beautiful rose-coloured nail polish is ideal for when you just want a colour on your nails but you're not feeling too bold. I love it during autumn and winter because it's nice and muted and the colour is lovely.

2 // Thigh High - Thigh High was my secret santa present from my friend Ellie, we only met at uni three months ago but she already knew I'd love this as a present, a sign of true friendship for sure! This colour is the most Christmassy and I'm wearing it right now. The deep red is stunning and the fact that it's slightly shimmery means it's a really festive nail polish!

3 // Cocktail Bling - Lily Pebbles brought my attention to this polish. It's another lovely muted colour that's grey with light blue tones - elegant and perfect for winter days. I'm sure that anyone would love to add this to their nail polish collection.

And there you have it! What are your favourite essie nail polishes? Let me know in the comments if I'm missing out on any essentials!
