If you're already longing for the return of any sort of festive feeling, then fear not- I think I've stumbled upon the solution in the shape of some lovely new year nail shades. Worry not- there's no wall to wall glitter here- but instead a selection of excellently created colours, perfect for capturing the more austere aesthetic of January whilst packing some seriously winter blues-conquering punches:
Kure Bazaar Or Rose, Essie Jiggle Hi Jiggle Lowand Essie Jump In My Jump Suit
I don't know about you, but I've found that adding a splash of colour to my nails is a wonderfully speedy way to cheer things up, particularly at this time of the year. This little selection of shades were a present from Father Christmas at the end of last year (thanks, big guy!), and as well as being perfect for the festive season, they're also wonderful staples for the start of the new year too. Kure Bazaar's Or Rose is the most beautiful rose gold hue, and brushes on seamlessly. It's also ultra long-lasting, so well worth investing in if you're after something a little bit more low maintenance than usual. Essie (another perennial favourite of mine!), always come up trumps with their selection of shades., and this combination is no exception. Jump In My Jump Suit is a classic red, and again glides on effortlessly- although it needs a couple of coats to ensure staying power. Finally, the wonderfully titled Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low is a stylish silver, finished with flecks of glitter- perfect for carrying some festive sparkle through into 2016.
