It’s blowing my mind that Christmas is next week already and I AM SO BEHIND! Because Thanksgiving was late this year, there was one less week of holiday prep time and I’m feeling the effects. Today I’m quickly sharing my new holiday nails, and a big “buy one, get one free” sale on some of my favorite bracelets.

My first bracelet purchase from Victoria Emerson was early last summer and I picked up a boho cuff like these here. Once fall came, I picked up my first wrap bracelet like these here (soooo many options and they fit every wrist because they’re adjustable). Then last month I bought a bunch of bracelets for Christmas gifts because I just love the quality and how versatile they are. Definitely try them out while they’re on the BOGO sale!

For my nails this month I had a clear, sparkly vision of what I wanted. Once I got to the salon though, it turned into a lot of swatching and testing to find the exact combination I ultimately went with. If you’re looking for more specific details of where and how I get my nails done, please read this post here. To replicate this specific nail look, here are the products I used at the nail salon:

BASE COLOR:   052 Raspberry
LOOSE GLITTER:   102 Rustic #9

After doing some research online, I found the exact gel polish duo we used. The glitter I used didn’t have a brand name on it, but I’m linking similar nail glitter options here.

PRO TIP: If you’re ever looking for your nails to really last, maybe because you’re going on vacation, a honeymoon, or want them to stay intact the entire holiday season for example… then GO WITH GLITTER! Whether it’s a glitter polish or a base coat with loose glitter on top, it literally acts like a glue on your nails and keeps them sooooo strong!
