Holiday Nail Ideas

I love the colors of the season, and this year for nails it’s bold reds, bold greens and soft metallics. Sparkles, chromes and mattes are a hit this year as well as a glitter accent. Whatever makes you feel festive is what is going to be the best design. You can be as creative as you want when it comes to holiday nail ideas.

The most common shades for winter holiday nails are red, white, green and gold shimmer. For a DIY manicure I would recommend OPI nail polish. Here are a few good choices:
