Snow and sparkle: We are particularly coveting this snowy manicure by OPI, which features an Alpine Snow shade of white nail polish. The shimmering, soft wintry tone mimics the snowfall of the holidays, and manages to be seasonal without appearing tacky. For a finishing touch, the gold metallic trim around the nail completes the artsy, snowy look.

Gemstone colours: Although shades such as red and green happen to make a splash at this time of year, more refined jewel tones are just as beautiful. This Zoya manicure incorporates a series of various gem-coloured nail polishes. From shimmering blue to rich reds, jewel-like colours are the easiest way to refresh your fingertips.

Red half-moon manicure: From candy apples to twinkling ornaments, ruby and scarlet can be spotted just about everywhere this holiday. If you want to embrace the trend, paint your fingernails with a rich red, and leave clear half-moons by your cuticles for a striking effect.
