We all look forward to the holiday season for an array of different reasons, right? For some, it’s Christmas ham, an up in alcohol intake, and the chance to celebrate with our nearest and dearest (plus, you know, presents).
For others (AKA us), it’s all of the above, with the addition of one pretty major standout: sparkly nail polish, of course.
Because while most people may start prepping their party season outfits as soon as Halloween passes, us beauty lovers get going on building out a quality holiday party polish wardrobe.
So, if you’re feeling lost in a sea of sparkles, we’ve rounded up the chicest shades to try this year, from glitzy neutrals to full-blown brights...
Smith & Cult Nail Lacquer in Palace in Wonderland
Keen to run with the shimmer brief but not so into the classic colours? Flip the script with this sparkle-spiked fuchsia – it’ll be perfect all party season long.
Chanel Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour in Chaine D’Or
If you’re worried that gold polish will look gaudy, allow this wildly chic molten metallic lacquer to prove you wrong – it looks like literal liquid gold and it's lush.
Butter London Glazen Peel Off Glitter Lacquer in Aquatic
Chunky glitter is always fun – getting it off is not. Luckily, this divine glitzy teal offers a clever formula that lets the sparkle peel right off. Genius.
Barry M Under the Sea Nail Polish in Angelfish
If it’s a neutral with some extra pizazz you’re after, this shimmery beige-cream will definitely fit the bill; it's still subtle, just a little more special.
OPI Shine Bright Infinite Shine Nail Polish in Let’s Take An Elfie
Why stick to traditional holiday hues when this pearlescent purple exists? It’s both bright enough for daytime soirees and deep enough for after-dark ones.
Dior Diorific Top Coat in Golden Snow
Billed by the brand as the polish equivalent of a dreamy snow globe, it’s an icy, iridescent shade that’s stunning worn solo or layered over your favourite colour.
Gucci Vernis à Ongles Nail Polish in Melinda Green
Hear us out: if Gucci says Grinch green is in, it’s in. With this rich yet vibrant long-lasting lime, though, we’re not the slightest bit mad about it.
Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture in Studio Silver
Oh hell, it wouldn’t be the silly season without a sparkly silver, now would it? This ‘look at me’ lacquer will have your tips party ready in a flash.
