Top 5 : Christmas Nail Polish Shades 2014

Just 4 more sleep's until Christmas so today I thought I'd share my Top 5 with you.
I'm not saying you have to own these particular one's, work with what's in your collection!

Nicole by OPIKourt Is Red-y-For A Pedi is from the first Kardashian collection. At Christmas I wear red, white or green so I find red nail's usually go with what I'm wearing. This red is bold but it's easy to apply and it still look's decent after 3 day's. I recommend using a quality top coat. I use Essence Gel-Look or the much talked about Seche Vite.
The next nail polish that's an around Christmas time polish for me is China Glaze: Icicle. It's a very glittery silver polish. I'll wear this over my entire nail if I'm in magpie mode but I also use this polish as a nail tip colour or an accent nail colour. It's one of my fave polishes in my collection. It hasn't had one outing in 2014 so it's probably going to end up on my nail's in the next few day's. It's gorgeous.
If your not into red or silver the next polish is a duo-chrome from OPI Spiderman CollectionJust Spotted The Lizard. I like to wear this any time of the year but seeing as I don't have a completely gold polish I decided to include this one because it's on the gold-but with a hint-of-green. I realise it won't be everyone's cup of tea. This is my only duo-chrome polish so it's unique in my collection.
If your not into any of those three my final choices contain glitter. I like wearing glitter nail polishes and if that's not your thing I completely understand but these have been favourites for a while and it wouldn't be a Christmas Nail Polish post without including these.

Australis Cosmetics: (51089) Fairy Bread is a glitter topcoat but if you want to wear this over your entire nail with nothing underneath which I do. I usually wear this as a nail tip or accent nail and a solid colour underneath. It's perfect for Christmas and New Year and I should have a backup bottle!
The final two are both OPI's from the original Katy Perry Collection. The first one is Teenage Dream which is a clear polish with pink and silver glitter and it's almost on the shade of pink leaning toward's a Rose Gold. If I had a completely Rose Gold nail polish that'd replace this one because I think Rose Gold is beautiful and please don't be surprised if a rose gold polish is included in my Christmas 2015 nail post. The final one is Last Friday Night and it's a clear polish with blue and silver glitter. Both of these Katy Perry's were my very first OPI nail polish purchases back in 2011 and my OPI Collection has grown to around 12 polishes.
Please let me know if you'd like me to write about my Nail Polish Collection in the New Year!

If I was doing a Northern Hemisphere Christmas as I did for about 8 out of 10 year's then my go to polishes would still be a bright red or red wine, plum or black with a touch of glitter on the tip's or as an accent nail. I live back in the Southern Hemisphere again so black nail's would only be worn by me at christmas for a party. Australia and New Zealand Christmas fall's in Summer so I pretty much keep very dark nail colour's to the Autumn and Winter which is start's in July.

My Christmas Day polish this year will be ...
 China Glaze's Icicle with Australis Cosmetics Fairy Bread tip's!

I apologise to matte lover's out there but I'm not a fan of matte nail's. If you have a Matte Christmas nail polish post, or Christmas nail art post, link them below so I can read them.

If you don't wear red, silver or gold polish at Christmas, what colour(s) do you wear?

Thankyou for supporting me in 2014.

Have a Safe and Happy Christmas & New Year!
