While a coat of bordeaux polish is a perennial fall favorite, the holidays call for something more festive. And it’s no wonder we’re thinking pink—the hue made a major comeback on the recent Paris runways, spotted on models at Céline, Valentino, and Balenciaga. As party season kicks off, consider a manicure that combines a subtle glow with the shade of the moment.
For a frosty jolt of color, try a coat of Essie’s Oh Behave!, a peachy shade that enhances virtually any skin tone, or Deborah Lippmann’s cotton candy–inspired creation, pretty enough to brighten up a blustery day. The young at heart will enjoy Floss Gloss’s coppery Keys to the Mansion, designed with chunky pieces of glitter, or OPI’s cheekily named Princesses Rule. Whichever you choose, each will provide a subtle hint of shimmer to take any holiday outfit up a notch. Here, eight ways to turn on the shine.
