Amidst all the primping and planning for your plethora of holiday engagements, it can be easy to overlook your nails, but a dressed-up set of digits is crucial to topping off your look. Plus, according to celeb manicurist Skyy Hadley, most people talk with their hands and if you're planning on drinking and eating on the party circuit, then attention will constantly be drawn to your hands. So it's critical to make sure your hands and nails look their best.
That's why we put together our guide to the seven hottest nail-polish trends for the holidays, plus tips from Hadley on the coolest ways to wear ‘em all. Click through, take notes, and prepare to feel that holiday spirit, in your fingers and your toes.
Nothing ups the glitz-and-glam factor quite like digits decked out in loads of sparkle. Look for polishes that feature chunky pieces of glitter alongside more finely milled shimmer. To up the impact, layer a metallic underneath to make your pizzazz really pop. "Never wear a nail polish shade that is the same color as your dress," cautions Hadley. "If you want to go all out with super-bling on your nails, then be sure to wear a fairly plain dress with minimal design."
