Part of the fun of party season is getting experimental with your makeup look. And the same applies to your nails! I am usually one for simple, natural-looking manicures (or even completely nude nails) but I’m all for going for gold during the festive season. Need some inspiration? Below I’ve picked out a few of my favourite colours from the current collections, and listed a few people to follow for nail art inspiration.
Who said pink isn’t Christmassy? This glittering nail polish is just screaming out for a glass of champagne to be seen next to.
Metallic nails are the perfect finishing touch if you’re opting for a little black or red dress for your party.
Formulated to help strengthen nails, this deep, berry red is chic enough for work but pretty enough for party season.
Opt for a classic Christmas red for a timeless festive finish. This Louboutin Jazzy Doll shade is one of the best.
Jinsoon polishes are vegan and free from nasties – and this black and white glitter polish creates instant party nails when applied over a clear basecoat.
Up for a bit of at-home nail art? Invest in Dior’s golden nail liner and draw festive designs on your nails. Or just start with a line down the centre of each nail and work from there.
