Party Season Nail Favourites

With Christmas and New Years impending I thought it was time to update my nail varnish collection, so I recently engaged in a mini drugstore nail varnish haul in search of the perfect holiday nail look. As I was really happy with a few of my purchases I thought I'd share a few of my favourites! 

So here are some nail looks I've been sporting at Christmas parties, and that I'm looking forward to wearing for the rest of the holiday season:

Maybelline, Colour Show - Let It Snow, 353 Red & Precious Pearl
I actually got this set free along with my other two Colour Show purchases, which I was glad about because I did have my eye on the set. This is now one of my current favourite nail looks, I love the coat's snowy look against the festive red base.

Rimmel, Glitter High Coverage - 002 Ruby Crush
I also experimented with coating the same red shade by Maybelline with this glittery varnish from Rimmel. I find it also worked really well with the red base and creates a nice shimmering golden-red look, perfect for party season.

Rimmel, Salon Pro - 135 Frankie My Dear
I really love this simplistic metallic-gold varnish from Rimmel which makes for a bold yet sophisticated look, perfect for the Christmas period.

Rimmel, Love Glitter - 031 Mistletoe Mischief 
I also tried applying this glittery top coat to the gold for a more dazzling effect. I'm actually on the fence about it as I'm not sure it works well with the gold base, but I may try it with another colour in the near future as I do enjoy the golden confetti look of it.

Maybelline, Colour Show - 107 Watery Waste
Similarly to the metallic gold varnish from Rimmel I really love this silver nail varnish from Maybelline. The silver creates an icy feel which I really enjoy for the winter months.

Maybelline, Colour Show - 231 Light Up

Using this as a coat over the silver base actually makes for my favourite party season nail look this year, and so far the one I've been sporting the most!. I absolutely love the texture of the glitter and think the two nail varnishes compliment each other perfectly.

Elegant House, House of Ho Ho Ho - Avalanche & Xmas Xcess
I recently attended the East Midlands Bloggers Christmas Meetup and Elegant Touch were kind enough to gift us East Mids bloggers with a selection of their Christmas themed acrylics. I had actually never worn acrylics before, but it's something that I've wanted to delve into for a while and found these really easy to apply and to wear. The two sets that I received provide really fun nail looks for the Christmas period!

What is your favourite nail look for the party season?
