The Essie counter is my go to whenever I'm looking for a new nail polish! This winter, there are a tonne of shades I love and here are a few on my favourites.

Starting from the left, we have Cocktails and Coconuts which is my all time favourite nude nail polish. It looks very chic and is great for all year round but I love how subtle it is. For me, the shimmer running through it lifts my nails and it's one of the few nude shades which doesn't make my hands look dead. It's a beige, cream shade which applies beautifully and is perfect for school or work. Next up is Chinchilly, which is a darker, grey toned nude. This is a beautiful shade in the winter as it's muted yet dark at the same time. This is another chic one I love and it looks great on every skin tone. This isn't one I would normally gravitate towards but I'm so happy I picked it up as it's quickly becoming one of my favourites.

Moving on to some darker shades now, Under the Twilight is the perfect deep purple. As much as I love those 'almost black' shades sometimes it's nice to have a dark shade which actually has a distinct colour to it. Purple is one of my favourite nail colours to wear and this one is lovely. If you're looking for a more burgundy shade, Bahama Mama is the one for you! It's not as dark as some other burgundies I have, but it's still very winter appropriate. It has a slight purple undertone making it very vampy. This shade is also a great one for the toes!
