Neutrals for the Holidays

Better Homes & Gardens reported recently on some of the trending décor for Christmas this year. The “farmhouse neutrals” trend is one that flawlessly translates over to nail color that will delight those that enjoy subtle, easy-to-wear trends.

Merry and Bright Shades

If you’re someone who prefers making a statement with the colors and styles you wear, this season’s other hot trend is perfect for you. Brighter colors are a popular holiday season décor staple this year, as Real Simple pointed out. Polishing your digits with some vibrant hues inspired by the rainbow will help you effortlessly keep up with this holiday season’s more daring trend.

Color of the Year

Every year, Pantone selects its color of the year. This year’s selection is a deep shade of blue which works well with both classic and trendy holiday palettes, combining the best of both worlds.

Classic Holiday Hues

Of course, you can never really go wrong with some of the more traditional holiday colors such as forest greens or ruby reds. Sparkle and shine are always in style for the holidays, and this year is no exception. The more traditional among us will take delight in some refreshed nail colors in beloved holiday shades.
