This is one of my favourite times of the year, not for the total lack of outdoor activity, not for the short days, and certainly not for the weather, but for the lead-up to the holidays. Think about it, the hot drinks by the fire, the lovely layers and the idea of giving back to the ones that you love and to society as a whole; it is literally the most wonderful time of the year! With that, comes another great plus, the festive nail polish! Whether you opt for red, green, gold, silver, blue or glittery shades, you’re bound to fit in with the festivity and coziness of the season. Today, I personally felt a little more “classic,” so I went for one of my all-time favourite nail polishes, Essie Fifth Avenue.
Part of the “Madison Ave-Hue” collection from Spring 2013, Essie’s Fifth Avenue is the ultimate, most beautiful, sophisticated, classic red. It’s a creamy red-orange colour that flatters all complexions and just looks fabulous on your nails. I turn to it whenever I want a bold, classy look and for whenever I don’t want to sit and fuss over my nails. It serves as the perfect red, pretty enough to catch your eye, without being TOO much or taking too long to apply. Plus, it fits into the “festive” nail theme that you might have going on this month and with it’s truly awesome, NYC-themed name, you can completely satisfy your inner urge to be Blair Waldorf, or at least feel like her for awhile. Now, that’s what I call a win-win.
So, what about you? Can you pull off colours like this one? Do you usually opt for more festive nail colours this time of year?
