Top Nail Colors for the Holidays-Red

Of course, the classic red is the hue for the Holidays. What makes it so special? Red is always chic and it can dress up your hands in seconds. As EssieWeingarten, founder of the popular brand Essie Nail Polish, says: “There’s no such thing as ‘certain age’ to pull off a red lacquer.” So go ahead and grab your favorite—and make sure it flatters your skin tone. A red manicure will give you the confidence of a beautiful Old Hollywood starlet.

During festivities, glittery finishes are allowed; but creamy, glossy nail polish remains the most sophisticated choice. Quick note: Keep your nails short. Extremely long nails are so 90s, and they look cheap when manicured with dark shades.
