#theWINTERproject Winter nails




I am so happy to be part of #theWINTERproject and I hope it will fill the void left at the end of #theSOproject!  As with the latter, each Tuesday at 6pm a load of lovely bloggers will be posting about the same thing - all Winter or Christmas related.  A huge thanks to Kellie for organising the project!

Today's post is going to be a quick one - I am a teacher in my day job and tomorrow is Parents' Evening so tonight is very busy getting prepared!  I thought I would put together a couple of ideas collections that are perfect colours for Winter.  I have homed in on Essie as they are my current favourite brand for nails - they have the most amazing colour range, have a gorgeous finish after 2 coats and last longer on me than any other brand I have tried.  Their adorable shade names alone are enough to make me splurge.  If they are available at your local Boots, you can often find them on offer too!

The number one thing I will say for nails in the Winter time is indulge yourself with regular manicures and use hand cream religiously.  I do not have dry skin but even my mitts get a little tender when the chill sets in and the heating is turned up.  Check out my home-manicure post here.

Reds
From Autumnal hues to vivid bauble scarlet, red is the perfect colour for heading into Winter.



Dark
Midnight blue, charcoal grey, emerald green and blackest black conjure up images of dark nights cosied up inside with a mulled wine.  Perfect as the nights draw in and the temperature drops.



Gifts
This gift set, available from Boots and boots.com for only £24.99, is a must-have for any Essie fans out there!

  3. I love Essie nail polishes, I don't find them all to be as long lasting as some of the other brands, but they do have an amazing range of colours!
