What's hot for nails this season

We have seen a lot of black, brown, blue and purple nail polish in the past few months. And though these shades remain popular, look for burgundy and true red for winter, as well as unique neutrals such as camel and gray.

Though deep purple nail colors are still on trend, we prefer burgundy with a touch of sparkle. From the Sephora by OPI Holiday Gems Collection, check out What's Your Point-settia? ($9.00) This new, limited edition color is an opaque metallic burgundy that is perfect for the holidays but you'll love it all year round. This entire collection is absolutely gorgeous.


Camel-colored fashions are hot right now and so is camel nail polish. This color can range from a yellow-ish shade to a more nude hue. If you are looking for the latter, check out RGB Polish in Camel ($14.00).

Grays are big this season. You can find gray polish with blue undertones, olive undertones or brown undertones. For a true medium gray with no shimmer, you can't beat China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Recycle ($2.70).

True red

Get into the holiday spirit with true red nails. Red is a fun shade that adds a pop of color to whatever you are wearing. Match your red polish with your lipstick for a matchy-matchy look that can't be beat. One of our favorite reds is Jessica Nail Lacquer in Scarlet ($7.50).
