I’ve never really been a person to wear holiday sweaters or the designated colors for each passing event (red, white & blue for the 4th of Juliy, red & green for Christmas, etc), however I will slightly alter my beauty regimen to bring a little holiday cheer into my look. This year, it revolves around fall/winter nail polish colors – I won’t be caught without a shade of metallic or purple on my fingers and toes! Metallics are relatively festive and have been looking incredibly smooth and much more fluid than they have in years past – my two favorites are Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen’s “Stormy Blue” and the N.Y.C. New York Color Metro Metals Collection in a deep metallic shade that slightly resembles gravel or extremely dark sand. As far as purple polish goes – I will settle for practically any shade! I particularly love the medium hues, sans sparkle or sheen — matte colors are definitely preferred. On my wish list are the “O.P.I Purple with a Purpose” and Sephora’s L18 Raisin shade.
