holiday nail inspo!

I’ve been calling this Saturday Swanky Saturday all week!

Basically, Erik & I have a double date at one of his favourite steakhouses & we’re getting really swanky: think fancy drinks, getting all dressed up, hitting up an old school steakhouse… basically the perfect date in my book.

& a MUST are some glitzy holiday nails!! SO- I wanted to share my fav ways to add some holiday sparkle on your nails!

I’m really big into clean, natural products & nail polish is no exception! I LOVE Londontown – I talk about them often here because they are truly the best.

The polishes feel good on your nails & the quality is seriously unreal. They are easy to apply, & have a gel like finish. Even after removal, my natural nails look stronger and healthier. I would 100% put this in my “beauty with benefits” category aka my fave kinda beauty!!!

I really love that Londontown is vegan, cruelty free, & 9-Free.

9-Free means it’s free of the following: Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toulene, Camphor, DBP, Xylene, Ethyl Tosylamide, Acetone, TPHP.
What I really love that they are a botanical blend, inspired by a flower garden in England. The formula includes Britain’s rapeseed flower oil, evening primrose oil, chamomile, cucumber and other vitamins.

Not to mention, I can wear it for over a week without chipping if I use the base coat & top coat in conjunction.

I loved working with them here, that they let me choose some products for the holidays & fall! Be sure to check out my nail polish free manicure too – these products are a MUST, especially in the drier winter months.

Words can’t explain how much I love this silver! It’s a mirror reflective silver that really captures the light. It’s extremely pigmented & really a show stopper. I LOVE this metallic hue for the holidays – especially chic while holding a glass of red wine! I ESPECIALLY love to top this with some glitter – gold or silver!

Londontown Lakur in Chelsea Porcelain

Like in Fall, I’m loving a milky, snow white! This may sound weird but I love how it looks with faux fur – there’s a very glam aspect to it. I especially love layering this with some gold glitter – kind of like golden hour over snow!

Something about gold glitter instantly makes me think of the holidays. It’s perfect for layering over other colours & on it’s own, it reminds me of champagne bubbles! I love how this is as thick as a gel & the glitter varies in size. It’s perfect on – I especially love layering this over both the white & silver mentioned above & it’s VERY festive over a shimmery red!

If you’re looking for some fun nail inspo for the holidays, can’t recc these shades enough!!

Or if you’re headed to the manicurist: silver, gold, & white is the essellesse holiday look!

I can’t say it enough, Londontown is THE best nail polish brand I have ever used.

What nail polish shades are you loving for the holidays??
