With the holidays right around the corner, many of us are facing a calendar full of special holiday events – from office parties, to family gatherings, to intimate dinners for two. The season is simply filled with opportunities to shine! One of my favorite ways to add a bit of polish to my holiday wardrobe is… polish (the nail kind, that is).
Since I discovered them in 2010, my go-to nail polish company has been SinfulColors. SinfulColors produces an amazing array of high-quality, long-lasting nail polishes in hundreds of yummy shades. For this holiday season, they’ve added oh-so-festive colors that will add some pizzazz to your party wardrobe.
Polishes from this year’s four unique holiday collections make perfect stocking stuffers. The fashionable girls on your gift list will love these new shades, created just for 2014. But, I am planning to stash a few away for myself, too!
The four new collections this season include:
HOLIDAY FAVES COLLECTION Must-have shades, pictured above. These are the traditional hues that every woman needs for the season, including Gilded, a transparent shimmer with red and gold, Ice Dream, a cerulean glitter with a translucent silver base, Let’s Talk, a royal purple, Out of this World, a silver with swirls of glimmer, Pine Away, metallic tree green, Red Eye, metallic holiday red, Snow Me White, snowy white and Sugar Sugar, red-hot red. From this collection, my top pick is Sugar Sugar. Red is a classic and adds the perfect pop of color to enhance your little black dress.
BLUES & HINTS OF GOLD These six shades, shown above, are gorgeous for holiday dressing… or anytime. The collection includes All About You, a sheer glimmering gold, Cinderella, a stunning pastel blue, Endless Blue, a wave of cobalt, Gold Medal, a metallic gold, Hottie, a clear azure blue twinkling with silver, and Ice Blue, a soft indigo exploding with silver. My personal pick in the Blue & Hints of Gold Collection is Gold Medal. This is simply the most perfect shade of gold ever.
DECKED WITH GLITTER FLAKES If you truly want dazzle this holiday, try a dash of glitter. Shades in this collection, pictured above, include Decadent, a dazzling red with metallic flakes, Galax-Sea, a magical green with sparkling flakes, Holiday Rebel, green and red flakes laced with black, Twilight Twinkles, brilliant flakes of gold, and Unwrap Me, decorative black and red flakes. The Decked with Glitter Flakes Collection is so glam, I can hardly choose just one fave. For nail art or accent nails, I think Galax-Sea is simply stunning!
OPALESCENT TOPPERS Finally, turn any polish into a holiday-worthy look with an opalescent topper. SinfulColors offers the two new toppers for the season, including Bring It Sheer, a sheer icy green shimmer and Outta Space, a sheer red shimmer. Both of these toppers take an ordinary polish and make it something special. Although they can be used year-round, they make a holiday manicure something magical — and make polish last longer, too!
SinfulColors holiday polishes are only $1.99 each and are available exclusively at Walgreens for Holiday 2014!
