Holiday Nail Color Does Not Need To Be Red

I’ve been reading the December Bible–aka Vogue–which has proclaimed that the hot nail color for winter and the holidays is a steely silvery grey. Think molten metal.

I love metallics and I hate red nails, so I will happily go along with this trend. Red is festive and traditional, but it is also boring and can skew dowdy.

I don’t really have nail salon loyalty. There are so many in the neighborhood that I will pop into wherever happens to be close to where I am when I decide I need a mani. But I’ve been going to  All Seasons Nails and Spa (2566 Broadway, b/w 96th and 97th) a lot lately. Someone usually gives you a great shoulder rub while you’re getting lacquered.

Anyway, two manis ago I discovered OPI’s “Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous,” pictured above. It’s from the Swiss collection. Obviously. It’s a marvelous dark platinum with perfect sparkle. I will rock this through New Year’s Eve, then wait until Vogue tells me what I should do next.
