Polish and Melanin | Glitter and Gleam for The Holiday’s

It’s December, so we are  officially in the Holiday Season, though if you live in Canada we’ve been in the Holiday Season since October. Gotta love that early Thanksgiving.

Moving on, glitter and shimmer are part and parcel of the holidays. Whether it’s on garlands, ornaments or gift wrapping, it tends to be every where. So this time of year is great for when you want your nails to shine and sparkle, though we already know that we can have nails that glitter and gleam all year round.

For the festive season, bright shimmery nails are great to wear if you’re going to parties, business lunches and dinners, events you get my drift. With the focus being more on the glitter and the shimmer you’re not limited by the colour of the polish, so you could go with the traditional Christmas theme of reds, greens and silver or you could mix it up and toss in some blues or maybe a purple. Anything pretty much goes when it comes to the glitter.

I picked a few that I felt represented the essence of glitter and gleam. I’ve kept the format the same as the last post.
