Color Inspiration: Gift Wrapping

color inspiration: gift giving

It truly is one of the most wonderful times of year. Busy and hectic yes, but the decorations, the gift giving and spending time with those you love make it all worth it. We love the picture above from One Kings Lane, as gifts are gorgeously wrapped and on display as part of the holiday decor. The color palette is classic yet modern with touches of golds, silvers and pinks. Not only are these colors pretty for presents and decor but also for beauty this season. Just think of Klondike Cooler, the shimmering champagne that’s a perfect polish for your holiday mani. Cheers!

Winter Polish Pairings

With the official start of winter right around the corner (on December 21st), it’s time for us to share our favorite polish pairings for the season ahead. As you can see above, we are loving a shimmery manicure complimented by a rich cremey colored pedicure. Here’s the full breakdown of our picks:

1. The beauty of metallic polishes like Klondike Cooler is that they pair nicely with just about any color. For winter, pair it with Bitter n’ Twisted for a classic look that can easily compliment a dressy or casual outfit.

2. This color will take you through the chillier months as the extreme shimmery aubergine that is Widow Wood’s Nightcap is a rich jewel tone. We love it combined with an unexpected pairing like Hot Toddy, which is a dark greige creme.

3. Acting as our “new neutral” for winter, the silver metallic Charmer is one of our favorite colors, especially for New Year’s Eve festivities. It’s a shimmering platinum that looks great with Flying Scotsman, the cobalt blue creme.
