If you’re neither J Lo nor Paris Hilton, having loads of glitter in your clothes or bling-ed out accesssories may not come naturally to you.
But as the party season approaches, we can’t help but notice, that with nail colours, it’s out with the matte and in with the glitter, forcing us to go bling or go home.
Question is, how does one add a hint of festive fun to our talons without looking over the top?
Simple, by embracing the whole wabi-sabi concept of the imperfection and impermanence. We’ve spotted girls with all their nails painted one colour and only their ring finger topped with a hint of glittery polish.
The one glittery nail will add a festive touch to your entire look and ensemble without looking like you’re the actual Christmas tree. Plus, we like the edginess that it provides.
We’ve even narrowed down a few polish options for you to pull off this look.
Face It Nails from The Face Shop has launched three lovely shades – gold, pink and blue – just in time for Christmas and Valentine’s Day. Retailing at $10.90, these three shades will go with virtually any polish hue you decide to go with.
Alternatively, check out Deborah Lippman’s multi-coloured Happy Birthday and dark blue hue, I Love The Nightlife, for that added shine. Both are available at Luxola.com. for $35 each.
So if this is what Beyonce means by putting a ring on it, we definitely following suit by putting some glitter on it. Go on, try it and we predict a new trend of odd-one-out nails this festive season!
