1. Nail Laquer in Absolute Glitz


Paint this confetti glitter polish on bare nails or on top of your favourite base colour for the ultimate holiday manicure. The chunky confetti is a little more sophisticated—and less intense—than a traditional glitter.

2. No.39


Winter blues aren’t always a bad thing. We love this deep, rich navy for a winter manicure that’s a little more subdued.
