The most magical time for a mani is in the lead-up to Christmas. There’s something about twinkly, glitz party nails that put them in their own platinum tier.
With everyone trying to cram in catch-ups among their nearest and dearest before we wrap up the year, party nails are also a good investment (given the air time – and compliments – they’re destined to bring in).
Whether you’re a minimalist, or a maximalist, party season is an opportunity to dial up the glamour and elevate your every day uniform, and this applies to nails, too. Effectively beauty’s answer to jewellery, we can dress our nails up, bedazzle them and up the ante of our outfit. Plus, if they’re a longer-lasting gel or acrylic, they can see you through weeks of zero chipping and minimal maintenance.
The good news is, there are designs to go with every style. If you love an elevated classic, you can’t go wrong with a glitter Frenchie. But for a new twist, we’ve seen the shape remixed to keep it a little more unexpected. These glitter ‘V’ Frenchies are mesmerising and work beautifully with elegant stiletto and almond shapes.
Glazed nails have been on a journey and this winter, technicolour chrome is very much on trend. It means you can pick your favourite holiday shades (cherry, merlot, pine, midnight blue) and next-level them with a mirror shine.
