Nail of the Day

It's all too easy to get sucked in to deep burgundies and wine colours on the nails when the cool chill hits, but I like to change it up from time to time without losing the festiveness!

When I fancy a lighter option, for me it's all about greige! Today I went for one of my Essie faves, Miss Fancy Pants – a very light mauvey grey which keeps it wintery without being being dark all the time (those chips show all too easy!). To add a little spice I added a thin coat of Topshop Costume Ball to one nail – the rose gold flakes in this polish look beautiful over most colours, offering something a bit more unique yet still utterly versatile. It's a winner for me!

Let me know what you think about my wintery alternative, what colour are you reaching for at the minute?

  1. I love the accent nail trend- so pretty :)

    1. It's great for when you don't want to commit to full glitter! ;) xx

  2. Really pretty colour! I'm currently reaching for Revlon matte nail varnish in Ruby Ribbon - Its the classic burgundy but oh well, classic autumn/winter! ;)
