With the holidays fast approaching, the focus tends to centre around treating others. But since there’s a bit of down time before December takes over in full force, ‘tis the season to treat yourself and get hands-on with some holiday themed nails.
Essie: This much-loved brand is known for its affordable signature shades, and its bringing out the best for the holiday season. Multi-dimensional nails have had a strong showing this year, and the Essie Encrusted collection is definitely bringing the drama. Dark nails and grunge-inspired elements are everywhere in fashion, and this theme is echoed in the “Belugaria” shade, a jet-black nail colour with matte sparkles and holographic glitter.
MAC: Your nails will look as if they’re living in the lap of luxury with this gorgeous golden shade, entitled “Fierce Entrance” from the MAC Divine Night collection. This limited edition colour does more than simply look good—it’s equipped with UV protection and conditioners to keep your hands in haute condition all season long.
Mariah Holiday by OPI: If all you ever wanted for Christmas was Mariah Carey on your nails, then look no further than OPI. Mariah (that’s right, we’re on a first name basis) has partnered with the classic brand to release a collection with some luxurious accents. The collection is filled with holiday shades with glittery accents, including 18 carat White Gold and Silver Leaf top coats to bring out your inner diva.
Ciaté Caviar Nails: With a name like “Caviar”, this UK brand can’t help but exude opulence. The Caviar Manicure Luxe kit comes in bronze, gold and silver shades. If you thought 3D nails couldn’t be done in the holiday season, think again. This nail kit includes “caviar pearls” that affix to the nail, giving it a unique texture and a look that’s sure to make you the talk of the town.
