6 Festive Nail Polishes

Paint the town red (or gold, or blue!) with these six party-ready picks.


Essie Nail Polish in Apres Chic


It's the perfect shade of silver—not so bright it’s blinding, but just flashy enough to make a statement. Wear it on all ten fingers or across the tips for an updated French manicure.

To buy: $8.50, nordstrom.com.

Zoya Matte Velvet Nail Polish in Aspen


For a less predictable take on nude nails, swipe on this crisp white instead. The creamy formula goes on evenly and dries to a plush, velvety finish.

To buy: $10, zoya.com.

Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish in Can’t Be Tamed


A mesmerizing mix of gold and holographic flecks make your nails look as though they’ve been dipped in jewels. The warm bronze base keeps it from looking too garish.

To buy: $20, deborahlippmann.com.

Jin Soon Nail Polish in Blue Iris


A shock of blue on tips brightens up even the palest skin. Plus, the super saturated color is so shiny you could skip topcoat altogether.

To buy: $18, jinsoon.com.

Burberry Nail Polish in Military Red


This cheery crimson isn’t too blue, nor too orange. It’s a true red that works on all skin tones—and for any occasion.

To buy: $22, sephora.com.

Chanel Le Vernis in Rose Fusion


It’s hard to place this shade-shifting hue. In some lights, it looks more pinkish-gray; in others, it reads like a shimmery taupe. Either way, you won't be disappointed.

To buy: $27, chanel.com.
