When it comes to Christmassy nails, to me, it's all about the red tones & aaaall of the glitter. I recently decided to raid my nail varnish stash and I honestly didn't realise just how many 'Christmas' shades I owned and almost all of them were from O.P.I. I'm a little bit of a nail varnish hoarder and I've built up this collection after years of collecting them as individuals and in gift sets too.

Whilst I was rummaging through my stash, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to share with you just a few of my favourite colours from their past and present collections. I must own almost 20 shades of red but just a few of my favourites for a really rich red colour have to be 'Big Apple Red', 'Love Is in My Cards', 'Coca-Cola Red' and 'Amore At The Grand Canal'. If however you prefer a little more muted red shade, Cajun Shrimp may be more up your street. It's not as rich or vibrant in colour as my other picks and it has a slightly more coral undertone, still perfect for the festive season but better-suited if you're not quite as daring when it comes to sporting bolder colours.

At this time of year, I also love wearing rich red-toned plum/burgundy shades, which I carry over from Autumn each year. Particularly when I haven't tanned, I find these types of shades very complimentary on pale skin tones. Two of my favourites from my collection have to be 'Guys And Galaxies' and 'Lincoln Park After Dark'. I also have a few metallic options when it comes to these shades too, such as 'German-icure' (a chromatic mauve shade) and 'Today I Accomplished Nothing' (a chromatic dark purple shade with bronze glitter). I think that the metallic options would be perfect for a Christmas or New Years party nail look. 

Lastly, my favourite sparklier picks from O.P.I's collections have to be 'Is This Star Taken?' a silver with iridescent glitter chunks and 'My Signature is DC', a trusty metallic silver. These are perfect to use on their own, for feature nails or as top coats over my other favourite red/plum shades.

Do you have any favourite O.P.I polishes? Have you tried any of my favourites?
