With Thanksgiving just weeks away, the winter holiday season is almost upon us. Now, typically the color trends for this time of year lean toward dark and earthy tones or glitzy metallics. This year, however, there’s a new holiday nail color trend in town that might surprise you: brights. That’s right, the signature theme for spring and summer has extended its visit to include the cold, winter months, and we couldn’t be happier. To help you pick the best pink for your holiday wardrobe and makeup, we came up with a list of must-have bright polishes to warm you up this winter! Enjoy!

Essie Double-Breasted Jacket
Although, classic red is a staple for the winter months, this ruby shade has a vibrant pink undertone that will add a little spice to your LBD (Little Black Dress).

The Body Shop Colour Crush Nail Polish in Minty Armour
The holly green we are used to seeing decking the halls has gone minty with this vibrant-yet-creamy teal shade by The Body Shop. Wear this color with a cozy cream or tan knit sweater and you’ll be good to go!

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail in New Money
If you’re not into mint, go the alternative route and go lime! This bright green from L’Oréal Paris is a great way to get noticed at your next holiday party! Go electric, baby!

Giorgio Armani Nail Lacquer in Clash
Halloween may be over, but the lush pumpkin orange is far from out of our hearts. Brighten up those earth-toned outfits with fall’s signature color!

OK, we had to add some fun texture in the mix — after all, it is the holiday season! A glitzy bright blue offers your mani a little pizazz and complements metallics and shimmery winter white ensembles nicely. Get your glam on!
