Gotta Have It

How to nail it with the dreamiest winter season shades. Time for a home manicure?

6 of the best…winter nail polishes:


You know when a previously unconsidered shade suddenly seems absolutely on the money? This is how I feel about this orange. It’s pleasingly ’70s, the decade that’s the key influence on this season’s fashion collections, plus it bring rust-coloured leaves and pumpkin lattes to mind. (Shade: Playing Koi).

If anyone can make fashion’s new favourite colour, brown, sexy then Chanel can. I think I may love this glossy chocolate-coloured gloop more than actual chocolate, believe it or not. (Shade: Opulence).

I had a mani using this brand and the colour was chip-free for absolutely ages. It’s also very quick-drying. This dark red is a classic autumn-winter colour – glass of Merlot, anyone? (Shade: Afters).

Top Shop

Topshop’s beauty range is massively underrated – it’s cheap as chips and impressive quality. Give this sophisticated navy a whirl. (Shade: Dangerously Good).

This cult brand is known for its breathable polishes that don’t wreck your nails. Slate grey is always a très chic look for winter. (Shade: Lacquer Stone).

Chanel: Limited Edition

Green dress plus forest green polish is my favourite going out look at the moment (Shade: Deepness).
