Blogger Inspired: Winter's Hottest Shades

When it comes to nail polish, picking one that suits your style is often a safe bet. Our favourite Australian bloggers, like Nicole Warne and Sara Donaldson, have quite distinctive styles and we thought it might be fun to match them up with the coolest nail polish shades trending this season.

We think we've nailed it (pun intended) from Nicole Warne's classic red to Margaret's vamp-y purple. Read on to see if you agree, plus style tips on how best to wear the shade.


Who: Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper Girl

Blogger inspired: From her red lipstick to her camel coat, Nicole's style is classic and timeless.

How to wear: Red nail polish is bold and vibrant and is best paired with high-quality basics.

Who: Sara Donaldson of Harper and Harley

Blogger inspired: Nude is eternally elegant, matching Sara's own style philosophy of relaxed chic.

How to wear: Sara is proof that sometimes all you need is a little black dress, and nude polish is the perfect complement to this look.

Who: Margaret Zhang of Shine by Three

Blogger inspired: Margaret is a fashion risk-taker and purple is the colour for those who dare to be different.

How to wear: Vamp it up and pair purple with other deep and opulent colours. Try different silhouettes by matching draped or elongated pieces with structured items.

Who: Zanita Whitttington of Zanita

Blogger inspired: You don't have to be blonde like Zanita to have fun — try pink nail polish instead. It's exuberant and lively, just like Zanita's style.

How to wear: Pink looks great with denim in light washes, or wear it as an accent colour alongside cool neutrals.
