A Winters NOTD | Essie & L'Occitane

A/W nails usually consist of dark berry reds and navy's which I do really love. But I thought I would try something different and go for an ice-y combination of mint green and silver glitter. I meant to only do this on one nail as an accent. But as you can see I got quite carried away.. 
I absolutely love the effect and can't stop staring at them but I am already dreading having to take all this nail varnish off, glitter is such a pain to remove!!

I thought I would give a quick mention to my favourite hand cream of the moment as well. Winter completely dries my skin out, especially my lips and hands. I haven't found the eprfect lip balm for everyday yet. I like my Nuxe Reve de Miel for when I'm at home but I don't like using it when I'm out and about as you have to put your finger in the pot and that's a bit gross when you have been on the tube! I do want to give the stick version a go though. 
Anyway, back to the handcream. I got this in a set of 3 from my mum, I have had samples of L'Occitane hand cream before and I love it! It sinks in really quickly and is the perfect hand cream to have on my desk at work. It's pretty pricey compared to some offerings you can find in Boots or Superdrug but at £8 for a travel size, I don't think it's that bad! 

What do you think of my nails? Too over the top or the perfect amount of wintery festive glitter?

Hope you all had a great weekend!
