Winter Picks: Nails

Hello, hello !

This monthI'm starting a new mini series in which I will be sharing with you my most worn Nail polishes/ Eyeshadows/ Lipsticks throughout winter. 
Today it's time for lots of nailpolish - 10 shades if I'm more acurate. I love these shades this year a lot cause I love changing up my nailpolish very frequently. Too frequrntly in fact.
Let's be real folks - I have a problem ! 
Well jokes aside - I don't know what it is about winter but I love wearing deeper tones and all of theese that I picked are truly magnificent.

- Deep Night Tones -

I'm starting with the most dramatic ones.
I discovered Essie's After School boy blazer (btw how cute is that name) last yeat and I've been obsessed. It's a deep blue color, it almost seems that you are wearing black nail polish, but you're not.

Hyde in the park was a recent discovery from one of the LE collecion that Catrice have out every month. It's the prettietst and I love wearing it on a night out.

Essie - After School Boy Blazer; Golden Rose -Brandy Desert; Catrice - Hyde in the park; KIKO - 374
Brandy desert is a vampy berry collor (my fave one for the winter season -  and may I add that I have too many fashion items in that particular color). Enough said !

I picked up this KIKO nail polish when I went to Malta this summer, they had a nice little shop at Bologna's airport and I couldn't resist to pick up a few items to try, since a lot of bloggers have been raving about this brand. I don't have a lot of deep browns in my collection, and this one is not just your tipical brown, but it has copper shimmer too. It's a win win situation for me.

- Winter Shimmers -

There is something apealling to me about having a shimmery nail polish on snowy days. Although there haven't been as many snowy days this winter as I'd like them to be, I still hope for one more "snow storm" just to say goodbye to snow. I love snow can't you tell !

Paralilac is the all year round go to taupe nailpolish for me. It suits my style and it has the right amount of shimmer. I can't remember when I got it, but it was a part of a Catrice LE collection.

Catrice - Paralilac; KIKO - 858; H&M - Extravaganza
I  also picked up Extravaganza on a trip last year when I went to visit Bratislava for a day (I even made pictures for a post, I just never got around to post them - maybe I'll do like a traveling post).
It's a party in a nail polish bottle. That's the perfect description. 

This one is from the same trip in KIKO as the dark brown one. I have nothing like it in my collection which with the amount of it that I own it surprises me a lot.
I wish I had an eyeshadow that was this color.

- Warm Afternoons -

When it's too cold outside I like to pretend that I'm warm just by playing make belif with the color of my nailpolish.

Golden Rose - 109; Catrice - Chromeo&Julia; Essie - Twin Sweater Set

I remember bloggers posting pictures on this collection and I fell in love with Chromeo and Julia right then and there. The next day I picked it up. It the most beautiful marble polichrome nail polish I own.

Twin sweater set is an all time favorite for me. It's the first Essie nailpolish I purchased. I love everything about it. It's one of my favorite reds from my collection.

GR 109 - I picked up this one this summer. I loved it all through fall and because of it's warm color I keep reaching for it.

So these were my winter picks, and I'd like to know which are yours?
