Winter 2015 Must Have Polishes

Winter 2015 Must Have PolishesOh my goodness y’all, it’s the first day of winter. This is bad news because that means it’s going to start getting cold. And there might even be snow (I do NOT like snow). But the winter solstice is always good news because today is the shortest day of the year and I, for one, am tired it getting dark so early. I’m looking forward to the days getting longer over the coming months.

Under the jump you will find the 5 must have colors for your nails this winter season along with multiple polish recommendations for each color.

Make sure to leave a comment and let me know what you will be wearing on your nails this winter and also what you think about the 2015 Pantone color of the year.
