My Favorite Winter Nail Colors


I gotta be honest and share that I cannot bring myself to polish my nails any kind of grey shade. Remember when grey nails were ALL THE RAGE back in the early Twenty-teens? I couldn’t get enough! But something shifted (a trend) and now I’m much more prone to wear a creamy white on my nails instead of a dark grey.

And since it’s winter and the holidays are approaching like a freight train, red is another color I cannot get enough of right now!

Like with almost anything, I’m picky about my reds. They need to be bright, vibrant and can not look fuchsia. I found a few really nice reds if you have the same requirements as I do!

Red nail polish is the HARDEST color to paint on your nails because it shows every single mistake. You can practically breathe too hard and it’ll cause a smudge on a red nail. You can follow my tips for the very best at-home manicure process, just click here to read that post!

    Have you found a good replacement for the Julep Vanish cuticle remover? They don’t make it anymore and other things I’ve tried are so harsh they leave my fingers cracked and dry. Any suggestions? Thanks Kate!

    I also like wearing white polish on my fingernails. It looks fresh! And red polish for toenails. Hope the Olive and June polishes will be available in the UK soon. I saw your Insta story and they look like hardwearing polishes- exactly what I need!

    I love red nail polishes, as they work really well on any complexion, including my pasty white self! I especially love cool cherry reds, but the orangey-reds are piquing my interest lately!

    The Essie polish is calling my name! Grabbing that one for the holidays to replace my old red polish!

    I like the Essie Gel Couture nail polishes. I have the colour Sizzling Hot and it’s a lovely bright coral that makes me happy whenever I see it on my fingernails 🙂
