As 2013 comes to an end, it’s a good idea to look back and review the best polishes of the year. Over at All Lacquered Up, there is a list of the top ten glitter nail polishes of 2013, complete with swatches. In our last post, we looked at a China Glaze glitter polish in the Happy HoliGlaze Collection, Bells Will Be Blinging; a different Happy HoliGlaze glitter, All Wrapped Up, made the top ten list.
Another popular shade in the top ten is an OPI liquid sand, Alcatraz Rocks. The sparkle and texture of lacquers like these made glitters popular in 2013, and will keep them fashionable next year and perhaps beyond.
The Tampa Bay Times has a short feature on non-traditional colors of nail polish that are great for the winter holidays. While red nails tend to be the standard for manicures during this time of year, there are other options. Writer Stephanie Hayes gives five of her favorite new shades of the season, one of which is Bells Will Be Blinging by China Glaze. This polish is part of the Happy HoliGlaze collection and contains blue and gold glitter.
Be sure to wear colors you like during the holidays, not just ones traditionally seen during the Winter season.
Christmas and the winter season are associated with a lot of things–cold weather, snow, family, gift-giving, etc–that are great themes for nail designs. Nail art becomes more common, as people tend to have more fun with their nails than during other times of the year. In fact, we recently highlighted three different manicures perfect for the winter holiday season.
Below are pics of 12 more fun winter-themed nail designs that we’ve seen: which is your favorite?

With the winter holidays upon us, it’s time for many nail enthusiasts to decorate their nails festive designs. Some nail art can be very simple, while other examples can be intricate and require a lot of experience. Allure.com has a guide to holiday nail designs that is great for anyone, as there are three manicures, one each for people with advanced, intermediate, and beginner skill levels.
The advanced nail design is called the “Full-On Mrs. Claus”, and it features snowflakes, a snowman, and a Christmas tree. The medium skill level manicure is referred to as “Wrapping Paper Nails”, and it will make your nails look like gifts that are ready to be opened. The final design, which is for beginners, is two-toned and called “Elegantly Festive”. It is a stylish look featuring a rich burgundy like Visions of Love in the OPI Mariah Carey Holiday Reds collection, along with a silver glitter.
With these three options, everyone can wear a festive nail design for the holiday season. Discover the manicure that is right for you!
When people think of fashionable nail polish for Autumn or festive polish for Christmas and Winter, gray is usually not the color that comes immediately to mind. However, this Fall and Winter season, you might want to take some suggestions from CelebrityRedCarpet.co.uk, which has a feature on the benefits of gray nail polish.
Gray nails can give a subdued yet chic appearance, which works well whether you’re in a black dress or something more casual. Some suggestions are to try a light gray on your nails with other colors like blue or yellow. And light gray can be a terrific base color for nail art.
Another shade of gray that would look great this season is dark or charcoal gray, which goes well with the many glittery and textured polishes that are popular now. And a third type of gray includes the color with purple or pink tones to give a warmer appearance.
If you’re interested in gray nail polish, take a look at OPI’s Haven’t the Foggiest, part of this winter’s San Francisco collection.
