Holiday Beauty Week: Party Nails!

Welcome to Day Two of our Holiday Beauty Week. Yesterday we talked perfect party makeup, and today we’re turning our focus to our fingertips. Here are the hottest ways to make your tips festive this season!

The 2011 Latina Beauty Awards

1. Party Nails: Sally Hansen

Sweet Stripes

Add a festive touch to your holiday LBD with these candy cane nail polish strips!  Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Peppermint Twist, $8.54, target.com. Check out the plaid and snowflake prints, too. 

2. Party Nails: OPI

Crimson Redux

In honor of the Muppets Movie, OPI created a special Muppet-themed holiday nail collection. This one—called Getting Miss Piggy With It ($8.50, opi.com for salons)—is your go-to holiday color kicked up a notch with silver and red glitter. 

3. Party Nails: Julep

Can’t-Go-Wrong Hues

If you’re wearing something bold or simply want to go for the most sophisticated finish, two coats of an extra-shiny metallic or a rich, creamy plum is your ticket to holiday perfection this year. Try Julep Nail Vernis in Gayle, Sienna, and Leighton, $14 each, julep.com

4. Party Nails: Dashing Diva

Ornaments for Your Nails

Forget the tinsel for your Christmas tree. Instead, decorate your nails with metallic accents. These turquoise and silver appliqués are from Dashing Diva Design FX (check here to see if a salon near you offers them).   

5. Party Nails: Essie

Go Gaga for Glitter

The glitter trend this season is bigger than ever (here’s how to wear it on your lids, or even your lips, too). Our favorite glitter-packed polishes this season: Essie Luxeffects Topcoats, $8 each, nordstrom.com. For the full multi-dimensional effect, layer them over any regular polish color.
