Now that we are officially in the holiday season, it’s time to share with you some holiday-inspired manicures. Since the holidays are so festive, sparkly and bright, it would be a crime against nature to let your nails go drab and unpolished.
Let’s start with a holiday classic – radiant red. This Covergirl Outlast shade (185 – “Forever Festive”) is the perfect combination of true red and seasonal sparkle. While there are no pieces of glitter in this polish, the color shines whenever the light hits your nails. It is a show-stopper, and the perfect compliment to any holiday outfit.
Now moving on to the latter part of the famous metallic holiday combo … silver and GOLD! While staying true to its metallic roots, this LAQA & CO. “Chubs” polish is a bit subdued and a lot sophisticated. It packs a punch without stealing the limelight from the rest of your outfit. It’s a magical metallic neutral … if metallic can be neutral.
While there are a million of holiday-appropriate nail polishes out there this season, these are just two of my favorites. I highly recommend you give them a shot. But with a whole month ahead of us, there’s also plenty of time to play around with some other shades.
What are your go-to holiday polishes?
