Sparkle and Shine: How To “Nail” Your Holiday Ensemble
December 4th, 2012 by Fashion Staff
After searching for the right dress or outfit, pairing it up with the perfect pumps and adorning yourself with all the right accessories, you might be wondering what else you can do to make your holiday ensemble stand out. All year long we’ve seen trend after trend for nail designs, shapes and colors. These suggestions can easily add that extra pop of color or that little bit of bling you might be interested in adding to your already fabulous look.
All that Glitters is Gold…in this caseLovers of all things that shimmer and shine are sure to love the new “Man with the Golden Gun” top coat recently released by OPI as a part of their 007 Skyfall collection. As if you won’t feel luxe enough after dropping $30 on this holiday must-have, the polish itself actually contains 18-carat gold leaf flakes and comes in an adorable, glimmering gold bottle. It can be worn alone or atop and of the fabulous colors already in your collection.
Magnetic AttractionsIf you’re tired of the typical “solid color and done” routine that many of us use in order to get our nails painted and dried in time, Sally Hansen has a product that can give you 3-D nail art in just a few seconds. Who says that lump of coal has to stay in your stocking this year? With colors like “Graphite Gravity” you can rock it on your nails. The polish is easy to apply and comes with a built-in magnet.
Glam and GlitzMany of us have been in love with glitter since the days of My Little Pony and Rainbow Brite and Essie hasn’t let us down with their latest winter trend collection. With colors like “Leading Lady” and “Beyond Cozy”, a couple of coats matched with the right bracelet or cocktail ring are sure to be a hit. In fact, Essie has even paired up with BaubleBar.com and is now offering an online service that helps you create the perfect combination for your nail color and your cuffs. Let your nails be the finishing touch to the awesome look you’ve created for your holiday celebration!
