Today I bring you my main nail picks for the festive season. They are all drugstore polishes which cost less than £5. Here's the lowdown...
The Maybelline Superstay Nail Polishes are well known in the blogging world, as a great budget nail varnish brand. The shade Divine Wine is my favourite shade ever. It is super wearable and I love that it is a deep purple shade, which is perfect for this time of the year. I also really like from the line the shade Hot Salsa, it is a bit of a brighter pink shade, which looks lovely on your nails. These formulas are incredible for just £4.49. The brushes are wide and flat, meaning you need just one stroke to cover the entire nail. The nail varnishes also do not chip easily, as it has a thick gel like consistency.
I also am a big fan of the Barry M Gelly High Shine Nail Paints, I have been especially liking the shade Blueberry. At £3.99, they are also a great price for the quality of the product. They also have a gel like formula which has a high shine once dried. There is a huge range of colours within this range, and they are definitely worth checking out, if you are on the hunt for a particular shade.
I picked this KIKO Nail Lacquer last weekend in the shade Vermilion Red, and I have been wearing it ever since. I wanted the perfect red shade, and this does not disappoint. This is the cheapest one of the bunch for just £2.50. KIKO has previously been very difficult to get hold of. However, they are currently opening up a few new shops in the bigger cities and shopping centres, so hopefully you will be able to get your hands on their products much easier in the near future. I picked this up from the brand new store in the Trafford Centre.
If you like a little shimmer and sparkle at this time of year, then this shade in Cherry Space from MI-NY is a great choice. It is the glitteriest nail varnish which I have ever owned, and I love that so much of the glitter transfers on to the nails. I picked this up in Italy over the summer, it is an Italian brand which is pretty big over there. They do have stores across Europe if you are taking any trips anytime soon, I suggest popping in if you are a nail varnish lover.
