Holiday season equals party season, so
whether you’re hitting up your bestie’s New Year’s Eve bash or
the winter dance, your nails should polish off your look. You don’t
need an excuse to rock cool nails, so here are our 5 fave manis of
the moment to get you through the holidays this year.
Red is a classic holiday color, so
spice it up with this glittery number to make your nails the center
of attention. OPI’s holiday collection is Muppet-themed for the new
movie, and just as Miss Piggy would totally heart this glam hue,
we’re sure you will too!

You already see lace on everything, so
why not try it on your nails? These fuss-free polish strips won’t
leave you stressing about chips. Just stick on and trim down for
seriously unique and so-pretty tips.

These snow-inspired sweeties will hold
you over till the real flakes start falling. You could wear one at a
time, but these would look classy paired together in a moon manicure.
Do this by painting a half-moon shape base on the bottom of your
nail, and the rest of your nail in a different color. Hint: putting
those sticky circular reinforcements over the moon part makes
painting the rest of your nails easier!
China Glaze Winter Ice set, $12,
Green polishes are big around the
holiday season, but instead of a standard-issue kelly green, try this jewel
tone polish. It’s more muted than your average Christmas-tree
green, but still packs a whole lot of color, making it great for
events like your Mom’s holiday work party. Our fave way to rock
this shade? Paint four tips in green, and paint the last one gold for
a sparkly, gold-dipped effect. How festive!

Rocks, $8, target.com
Candy canes galore! This holiday treat
is just as sweet on your nails and is totally festive. Since making
stripes can be difficult, try painting your entire nail white and
then painting on red stripes diagonally with a toothpick or a thin paint brush.
