If You Got Mostly As …

Neutral Shades. Whether it’s due to your party’s professional ambiance or your classically cool style, clean, neutral shades are the way to go. Keep in mind, basic doesn’t mean boring! Step up the basic beiges and nudes with a matte taupe polish like essie Jiggle High, Jiggle Low or a shimmery white like NYX Cosmetics Girls Nail Polish in Venetian Glass.

If You Got Mostly Bs …

Get Dark — Or Metallic. You like to make a statement and the party you’re going to is the place to do it. Go dark with a mysterious midnight blue like Giorgio Armani Nail Lacquer in Bleu d’ Armani or a metallic finish like the brand’s Oro Oscuro.

If You Got Mostly Cs …

Rudolph Red. You don’t take yourself too seriously and neither will the crowd attending the party you’ll be going to. Wear that heinous holiday sweater and Santa hat with pride by complementing it with an equally festive mani. Red (like YSL Beauty Rouge Red) is a signature holiday color and will surely flatter any and all holiday garb you decide to throw on!

If You Got Mostly Ds …

Go With Glitter. Let your feminine and whimsical style shine by rocking a fun and flirty glitter polish like essie Carnival. This texture gives your nails some much-needed holiday pop while still staying true to your girly fashion sense.
