IF YOU want a manicure that screams HAPPY HOLIDAYS!, then might I suggest heading to the same Kristin G. at Spa Dana who does my nails on a regular basis. I popped in Sunday for a manicure and she had her stash of personal polishes with her (instead of the same hum-drum Essie selection). In it was the Orly Foil FX polish collection, which screams festive with it’s shimmery, glittery, heavenly, Christmas-ornament-gleaming-next-to-a-fairy-light sort of way.
I chose Luxe, which is a gold foil finish and it’s amazing. It’s the perfect accessory to pair with your LBD for the office party. Not too flashy the way, say, glittery eyeshadow can be. It’s a great way for grown-ups to do sparkle.
Orly Foil FX Collection (click here for swatches) and the China Glaze 2010 Holiday Collection (heart Jingle Bells, Party Hearty and Cheers To You… swatches here) are both uber-festive, as are Illamasqua’s Christmas Duos (swatch here) and Butter London’s Rosie Lee. Love them.
Get in the holiday spirit with festive fingertips this year!
