My Favorite Winter Nail Polish Colors


1. UO Classics Collection in la ciel $5. A pretty, dark teal. I'm amazed at how many colors this pairs well with. 
2. essie in wicked $8.50. A deep bold red. I love that it is DPB, toluene and formaldehyde free.
3. UO Classics in storm $5. A moody dark grey reminiscent of winter clouds.
4. essie in penny talk  $8.50. A shimmery metallic rose gold. I am obsessed with all things rose gold right now, so this is perfect :)


And here is what they look like on...not the best paint job in the world, but hopefully you get an idea:

I used two coats for each of these. The UO colors probably could've gotten away with one coat though. I'm on my third day of wearing them now (and I've been doing dishes and making some jewelry) with no chips except for the rose gold...I've found metallics don't last as long, but are still nice for a special occasion or if you paint your nails every couple of days. 

What are your favorite colors for the chilly months?


  1. Very pretty! I am such a sucker for nail polish. I finally finally bought a teal, I can't wait to try it! The rose gold is also really lovely! My favorite polish formula is pretty much always: short nails + dark polish + glitter coat or accent of some kind. I really love plum and burgundy for fall. Emerald and navy are also beautiful. I recently decided that white, cream, nude, and pale pink are lovely for any time of year for me... Oh nail polish... :) XO -Alexandra
