Best Christmas Nail Polishes

As the days go by, Christmas gets closer and closer, and isn’t it hard to believe it’s TWO WEEKS from today? I really can’t! I’m excited for Christmas because I’m going skiing! Not in Florida, obviously, but I am going out to the Northwest! 

Of course, if you’re lucky enough not to have your hands covered up by gloves all the time, you want some super cute nails! If you want some super cool nail designs for your nails, however, that is not my specialty and you’re probably better off hitting up Pinterest for some super cute nail designs. But, if you want to know some of the best colors and nail polishes, this post is the post for you! 

I try to use nail polishes from a variety of brands, and my favorite brand has probably got to be OPI. But in this post I do feature nail polishes from a variety of brands, including Sally Hansen, Hard Candy, and Elf. 


The Hard Candy nail polish is a bright sparkly green, that may look yellow when you first apply it, but it's actually a sort of lime green color. This is the color "636 Teeny Greeny". Then there's the Elf nail polish, in the color "Golden Goddess." This color is more of something you put over another color, so this would probably look the best on top of white nails. The Sally Hansen  Hard as Nails is a very vibrant red color with some sparkle in it, and it's probably my favorite out of the four. (for Christmas at least) It's in the shade 470 "Unbreakable Heart," and I really like how powerful this name is. The final one is Nicole OPI, and it's actually part of the Modern Family Collection that OPI released. It's in the color "A Phil's Paradise." This color is my go to color because it's silver and because of the cooler undertones in my skin, this looks really nice on me. So if you have cool undertones, I recommend this nail polish. 

Here are some swatches of the nail polish. 


I wasn't able to find the exact replica of the red one, but it's a very classic red so I just linked to a similar color by OPI.
