As you might know, today is Christmas Day, and I couldn’t be more excited about that. I love Christmas and I love everything about it. I’ve been looking forward to it for months now so I’m super happy that today finally is the day we can celebrate Christmas. I know that most of you are probably out celebrating Christmas as well and therefore there will be very little people reading this post today, however, I did want to post an article today filled with a little more than just a Merry Christmas. So, today I’m going to show you my holiday nail polish picks, the nail polishes I would wear during the holiday season and other festive occasions. If you’re interested in finding out which polishes I’m talking about, make sure you continue reading!
Let’s start off with two Essie nail polishes. I feel like I include these in my posts every single year but honestly, these are just the two most festive nail polishes ever. I’m talking about Essie She’s Pampered and Leading Lady. She’s Pampered is just a really pretty fruity red shade. It’s fresh, it’s bright and it’s fun. It’s not your classical red but that’s exactly why I like it so much. It’s a little different but still classic because it still is a red. I just really like this polish and I’ve worn it a ton during the holidays over the last couple of years!
The other shade, Leading Lady, is a glittery polish. Because of the glitter I think it’s perfect for the holiday season. I mean after all this is the season to be glam. Isn’t it? The reason why I would go for this exact polish is because it has the perfect shade of glitter. It’s a gorgeous deep red shade that instantly reminds me of Christmas whenever I see it. I love combining this with another red polish like She’s Pampered.
Moving on to the second nail polish, the nail polish I’ll be wearing this Christmas. This is one of my newest nail polishes and it’s by Chanel. It’s called 586 Rose Prodigious and it’s a gorgeous red shade with golden and silver sparkles in it. The sparkles aren’t too overpowering, it’s not a glittery or metallic polish, there are just pieces of sparkle in there which show up every now and then, nothing too extreme.
Aside from the fact that I like the amount and the colour of the sparkle in this polish, I also like the colour of the polish itself. It’s a bit of a berry red shade. It’s not very deep and dark but it isn’t too fresh and bright either. It’s the perfect mixture between both. It also has a bit of a pinky tone to it which I really like about it!
Another reason why I’m wearing this during the holidays is because it’s super quick to work with. It applies very quickly and easily and it also dries super fast. The holidays are always busy days, so a quick-drying nail polish is the perfect kind of polish to use!
Next up is a nail polish by Herome. It’s from the W.I.C. by Herome collection. I have had this nail polish for years now and I really go through phases with it. At the moment I’m in a phase where I’m a really big fan of it again. After all it is just a stunning polish. It’s another fruity, fresh red shade. It’s fun but it’s classic and I just really like the look of it. I’m also a fan of the quality of the polish and I love how longlasting it is. I have very weak nails so nail polish usually does have a hard time on my nails. However this polish stays in place incredibly well! Oh, by the way, I forgot to mention the name. This shade is called Las Vegas.
Moving on to this mini nail polish from Maxfactor. I once got this for free with my purchase and I didn’t really know what to expect since the packaging doesn’t look that amazing. It actually looks a bit cheap to me. However, this polish is a real win. It’s called 63 Pandora Ruby and it’s a gorgeous deep red shade. It’s the perfect classic red for the holidays if you ask me and it stays in place for almost a week!
Then we have a polish from OPI called Die Another Day. It’s from an old collection so I don’t know if this exact polish is still out there, but I’m sure they have something similar in their collection nowadays. This is a gorgeous metallic red shade. It has a bit of an orange tone to it which makes it a little more bright but I like that about it. I think it’s a stunning polish and it’s one I’ve definitely gotten a lot of wear out of.
Lastly is this Maybelline Forever Strong PRO nail polish in the shade Volcanic Red. It was a bit of an impulse purchase a long time ago but gosh I love it. It’s the perfect metallic deep red shade with a gorgeous shimmer in it. It’s definitely one of my favourite red nail polishes and therefore definitely one I need to mention in a post like this!
And that’s everything for today. I hope you guys have an amazing time today celebrating Christmas with whoever you enjoy spending it with most and thank you so much for reading todays post!
