Bright, bold manicures are not just for the hot summer months. Now that the days are darker and colder, you have even more ready to glam up your hands - especially if you're headed to a holiday party during this festive season.
You can't go wrong with a classic red. CND Nail Colour - Reds gives you plenty of options to choose from, whether you want a bright poppy or a deep scarlet. Red nails are traditional, match with everything, and of course, are seasonally appropriate.
Glitter is another way to jazz up your mani. Full glitter on your nails is like wearing another piece of jewelry, and is a great way to spice up your holiday party outfit, but if you're not ready to go all-out sparkle, try wearing it just on your ring finger with the rest of your nails painted a solid color.
Glittery nail polish also makes a great ombré manicure. Simply paint all your nails a solid dark color, then paint the tips with glitter. Start with one swipe of glitter about halfway down your nail, then continue adding coats in increasingly shorter strokes. This will give the tip an opaque sparkle that appears to fade down the nail. The CND Plum Truffle Collection is perfect for this job - this set of manicure and pedicure supplies includes a light pink glitter that looks glamorous and festive over the deep shade of fuschia.
