The perfect holiday nail shade

Gilded manicures are perfect for the holidays!Winter is typically when ladies switch their neon pinks, oranges and fiery red nail polishes for darker shades. There's just something about cold weather that makes women want to opt for rich plums, black and navy blues. However, metallic polishes are a huge trend that always look chic, and if you're looking to jazz up your holiday manicure, gold is the way to go.

Gold is essentially a neutral color, which means it goes with literally anything – even that dress you're planning to wear for that Christmas bash! It's still pretty conservative, with just a hint of festive pizazz, so there's no need to feel like you're overdoing it.

Try Lippmann Collection – Nail Lacquers in Believe or Nefertiti. One's a shimmery gold beige while the other is a fine golden frost. Be sure to use a base coat to prime your nails, then use two coats of the polish. Finish it off with a quick-drying top coat like Lippmann Collection – Addicted To Speed Ultra Quick-Dry Top Coat and you'll be ready to go in no time. If you're feeling extra daring, why not choose one nail on each hand to paint silver?
