If you’re looking for a way to add some holiday spirit into your wardrobe this winter without breaking the bank, look into investing in holiday nail colors instead. This seemingly small touch can add a lot of class to your look, and winter polishes have never been more exciting. Here are some ways we’ll be wearing it under the mistletoe:

Stand out in brilliant metallics. Metallic polishes aren’t new discoveries but have never looked better or more appropriate during the yuletide season. Our pick is YSL’s La Laque Nail Lacquer from their Holiday 2010 collection. It has the softest, most luxurious glimmer.

Wear contemporary holiday colors. There’s nothing wrong with a set of red tips, but if you’re running low on your safe color choice, plums and clarets are a great option too. We love Essie‘s Luxedo shade and Silken Cord from their winter collection.

Layer up! And we’re not talking about clothes. Mix and match a layer of an opaque hue with a layer of shimmer and you’ll come up with something uniquely yours. Enhance the color of a polish you might already own with a new sparkly tone, or vice versa. We like OPI‘s Bring On The Bling or Extra-Va-Ganza on top for a fresh sheen.
