7 Unexpected Holiday Nail Colors To Try In 2019
Posted on November 27 2019
There's nothing wrong with opting for a classic nail shade this holiday season, like a shimmery red or forest green or maybe even a metallic gold or silver color. However, this year has been about pushing boundaries and stepping outside your comfort zone, so why not try something new for the holidays? Here are 7 colors you should definitely try this holiday season!
1. Baby Blue
Instead of gravitating towards the typical dark nail colors for the holidays, try a shimmery baby blue like "Let Love Sparkle" from the OPI x Hello Kitty Holiday collection. A nail color like this is bright enough to make your nails pop without taking away from your look.
CND's Crystal Alchemy collection takes five colors and puts a holiday twist by adding a little shimmer. "Powerful Hematite" perfectly combines black with some shimmer to create an elevated nail look for the holiday season.
3. Shimmery Teal
If you're still looking to wear a "traditional" holiday nail color, swap your classic green for a shimmery teal. It's versatile, rich, and the perfect alternative. "Air of Mystique" from the ORLY Dreamscape collection is perfect.
4. Chocolate Brown
While it may not be your first choice in a holiday nail color, this neutral pairs well with a luxe velvet dress and also great if you're someone who's not looking for a lot of color when it comes to nails. CND's "A Cuppa Joe" has that holiday shimmer, making it the perfect nail color for the winter season.
5. Metallic Pink
If you're looking for a more feminine touch, adding a metallic pink like the popular "A Hush of Blush" from the OPI Hello Kitty Holiday 2019 collection will still give your nails that festive look without being super obvious.
6. Navy Blue
Deep burgundy shades are the typical go-to nail colors for the holiday season, so try complementing them with a deep nail polish shade like navy. If you tend to gravitate towards the cool, darker colors for the season, try Essie Gel Couture "Surrounded By Studs".
If you're looking to make more of a statement than the traditional deep reds and burgundy nail colors, try a purple shade, like OPI's "Hello Pretty". You can even try layering it with the glittery shade "Pile On The Sprinkles" from the same collection!
