Holiday Spirit: Videos of the Month

Ready or not, the holidays are upon us. To get geared up for the season we’ve combed YouTube for the best in festive inspiration. From inventive hair to delectable homemade desserts, we can’t wait to put these ideas to use:

If your calendar is covered with holiday festivities, this knotted holiday updo from Kayley Meslisa is a great look to recreate. Not only does it put on a spin on the classic braids we’ve come to love, it can also be customized to fit any fete.

You know it’s time for the holidays when Starbucks brings out their holiday cups. HelloMaphie was so inspired by the spirited red coffee holders that she created this quick and easy nail art tutorial. 

Last but not least: Holiday sweets! This apple crumble pie by EssieButton is not only perfect if you’re throwing a party, but works as a fun hostess gift too. 

Where do you look for holiday inspiration?

This Polish Belongs on the “Top Shelf”

Lately I’ve been reaching for my heavy wool coat instead of my lightweight leather jacket. Yes, dear reader, it can only mean one thing: Winter is officially upon us. With the seasonal shift in mind, I’ve decided it’s high time I revamp my nail polish game, too. While I loved the bright and neon polishes I saw on nails all over NYC this past summer, I’m ready to embrace this season’s warmer neutrals and dark, vampy hues.

Right now, my go-to shade is Color Club’s Top Shelf, a shimmering copper hue from the brand’s recently launched Cocktail Collection. It has a sleek, mirror-like finish that makes it look like you’ve dipped your tips in a pot of molten metal—but in good way. For an extra dose of cool, layer an assortment slim, colorful, and beaded bracelets, like these from Sashi

Friday night here I come! What polish are you wearing this weekend?
