Butter London is quickly becoming a firm fashionista favourite for its catwalk-worthy, high-pigment nail lacquer colours. The brand encourages women to experiment with new colours, while walking on the safe side: its products are nasties-free, formulated without formaldehyde, dbp, toluene, formaldehyde resin, camphor, ethyl tosylamide and xylene.

And winter nail colour doesn’t have to equal boring: I’m loving the brand’s newbies, including its vibrant, stunning Patent Shine 10X turquoise Chat Up, bold Her Majesty’s Red and pretty-in-pink Loverly (pictured) – all delivered with a dash of Brit wit. They’re quick-drying, high-gloss, chip-resistant and contain calcium for stronger nails. Each nail lacquer is $25 available at

Next up, The Nail Lab (TNL) is a beauty newcomer aimed at revolutionising the nail bar industry in Australia. It too offers cruelty-free products which contain the lowest toxicity. TNL lacquers do not contain toulene, formaldehyde/formaldehyde resin, DBP or camphor. The brand prides itself on staying atop new-season trends, such as these stunning, new metallics in an array of seriously delectable shades. Each nail lacquer is $15 in salon or at

Bobbi Brown is also doing beautiful things for our nails this winter – I adore these gorgeous, limited-edition Sandy Nudes Collection nail polishes in Naked (left) and Nude (right). These rich, matte nudes from the beauty giant dry to a lustrous finish and will take you from day to night. Inspired by the warm hues of beaches around the world, the Sandy Nudes Collection is a welcome touch of summer in the deep, dark throes of winter. Find them at David Jones or

There’s a reason everyone loves Fiji. Not only is the soft pink really easy to apply (you only need two coats for a thick, opaque shine), but it lasts forever. Every girl needs a baby pink shade in her collection, and Fiji doesn’t disappoint.

A pop of red is perfect with a tan, and Geranium is the best fusion of orange and red that we’ve ever seen. If you do suffer from breakage, carry the polish in your handbag to disguise any cracks ASAP!

Every girl needs a shade like Wicked in their collection. Not only does it suit every skin tone, but it’s a great alternative to black which is often a harsh shade for the office.
