After all, it’s the season for clutching peppermint hot cocoas, piping hot ciders, and steaming lattes (which all look better when gripped with glossy crimson or sparkly silver tips, of course). While nude nail polish never goes out of style and slate grey is a wintery neutral that can certainly be worn year-round, some shades are most appropriate when temperatures chill—such as frosty blues, piney greens, and tinsel-inspired metallic golds.
Luckily, that means that even if you retired your neons at the first cold snap, your nails can still look bright and festive all throughout this holiday party season (while remaining free of ingredients like formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate or DBP, toluene, formaldehyde resin, and camphor). In other words, these babies are proof positive that the holiday season doesn’t have to be unhealthy.
