Favourite Winter Nail Polishes

Hi girls, I was in two minds about posting about my favourite Autumn/Winter nail polishes as I'm sure, like me, you are beginning to bore of dark shades and are looking forward to warmer weather, wearing pastels and brights. As I took the pictures a long time ago, I didn't want them to go to waste so decided to post it regardless, more as an insight into what my favourites were that I got lots of use from in the past few months!

Essie Thigh High - I bought this at the end of Summer for the bargain price of £2.99 in TKMaxx (and it's sold in boots for the usual price!), thinking what a great winter colour this would be! A beautiful deep, vampy red which is a classic festive shade.

OPI The world is not enough - Unfortunately, this was from the OPI 2012 Christmas collection so is no longer available but I had to include it no less, purely because I love it so much which is proved by the fact half the bottle has gone! The swatch does not do it justice, it's a taupe with red, green and purple shimmer which is gorgeous.

Essie Bahama Mama - Everyone was raving about this shade throughout Autumn, so I bought it as I don't own a shade like it. It is a deep, deep plum creme and the formula is phenomenal! After trying this shade, my mission is to try more Essie cremes this year!

China Glaze Tinsel Town - This has a slight OPI liquid sand feel about it, in the way it is borderline matte but contains glitter pieces. It's a gunmetal colour with silver glitter and is lovely as an accent nail with a deep red!

Barry M Copper - I bought this as I missed out on a polish called Warm & Fozzie from OPI Christmas 2011 and people said this is a spot on dupe, and from pictures it definitely is. It's a copper (obviously) with green, orange and silver shimmer. I used this over dark cremes for a subtle shimmer or built up on it's own.

It's unlikely I'll be reaching for these nail varnishes for a long, long time as I've already started wearing some brighter shades (which you will see in upcoming NOTD posts) but come September these will no doubt be adorning my nails. Goodbye darks and hello brights!

What has been your favourite nail varnish this Winter?
