Our top three things about winter? Layers, layers, layers! But, upping the ante with texture doesn’t mean saying good-bye to bold colors. Au contraire — a neutral fabric palette lets us play with brights on a smaller scale. Shoes, jewels, and digits are prime real estate for eye-popping shades. How perfect, then, that this year’s hot hues are rich oxblood, fresh mauve, and icy blue.
We teamed up with essie's color pros to create six holiday-ready looks, starring the spiciest shades of the season. Bonus: This posse of polishes takes the texturized trend to the next level with shimmer, shine, and serious sparkle. So, put away that bikini already, and turn up the heat in a whole new way.
