Beauty | Five Festive Nail Favourites.

There’s something about a glittery nail polish that screams festivities to me. Anything with a bit of shimmer, whether it be a hint or a boat load, instantly makes me feel Christmassy, so what better way to start #Blogmas than with a few of my favourite festive nail polishes.

If you’re not into as much shimmer but are still looking for festive nails, Orlys’ Monroe’s Red is going to be right up your street. As the name suggests the polish is a bold letterbox red which to me is the perfect Christmas red. I love how the Orly polishes come in smaller pots, as quite often (and probably because I own too many nail polishes) I never make it to the end of the pot without the polish going iffy, so for me these are absolutely ideal.
A nice in between finish is with the No 7’s Stay Perfect nail polishes. The polish has a sheen once applied which catches the light beautifully, and because it has no actual chunks of glitter, I think is a fab all rounder that’ll fit anybodys’ festive theme.
The holographic range from Miss Sporty is always a good place to start when you’re after an impact of glitter. I have the shade Electron Pink which to me appears more of a cherry toned red with small flecks of holographic glitter. The distribution of glitter with this polish is fab as there’s a decent even coverage for each nail, and against the cherry base, Electron Pink is an amazing festive shade.
Another of my silver favourites is from Seventeen in the shadeMoonstruck. Admittedly shade wise it is quite similar to the Barry M polish however this has a metallic matte finish with an iridescent shimmer, rather than a glitter. Moonstruck is such an easy shade to wear meaning the transition from festive day wear to night wear is going to be super simple.
Barry M is always the brand I think of when I want to apply a nail polish that’s a bit more eye catching & more unusual. For the festive season I thought the Silver shimmer shade would be ideal. The polish contains the tiniest glitter pieces which when applied gives your nails an amazing shimmer sheen.

I’m pretty sure you can tell what my festive theme is, but what are your favourite Christmassy nail polishes? Write your answers in the comments below, I’d love to know.

Thank you for reading. Lots of love. Claire.x



  1. Loved this post. I always tend to overload on the glittery polish at this time of year.
