Holiday Nails!

About two and a half weeks ago, I got my nails done in Essie's "Geranium" and it was SUCH a great holiday color! It's red and fun and definitely not as coral as it looks in the bottle. I LOVE it and highly recommend this shade to anyone looking for a very festive red. It held up great and didn't look dingy when I got my nails redone. 
Just two days ago, I had them redone (is two weeks a normal time for y'all?) and chose OPI's "Strawberry Margarita" for my Christmas color. I'm sure y'all are thinking why didn't she flip flop them or just keep the red? Something about pink at the holidays is very me. It's just close enough to red to be festive but I think that pink nails are almost always appropriate. I actually thought that "Strawberry Margarita" would be an AWESOME color on my wedding day (depending on the flowers and bridesmaids dresses of course!) because it's bright and a great shade. A few of my Twitter followers said it's their go-to summer color, but I really think it's a good all year round color. I may have to go out and buy it soon!
I think my next nail color will be Essie's "Bachelorette Bash" for my birthday color! And to go with my dress, I'll either match my toes with this same shade or go VERY BOLD and do:
Essie's "Turquoise & Caicos" since my dress has so many shades of blue/Lilly's Lagoon Green!

Have any good holiday colors? Do share!!

I have Bachelorette Bash and Strawberry Margarita and love them both! Strawberry Margarita I wear all year round too and I love Bachelorette Bash mostly in Fall / Winter!

I love all of those colors! I can't wait to see pictures from your birthday. I hope you have so much fun! 5 points is the best for 21st birthdays!!

I used geranium with a clear polish that has green and gold glitter in it, its not too sparkly, but its just enough! I love it and it covers the classic christmas colors! But i love the idea for pink!

Turqoise and Caicos is my GO TO color! My problem was it ended up matching too much.. everything I owned in the summer was the same color and I ended up just needing a change. I still love the color though-- for a birthday you have to go bold :)

Bachelorette Bash and Turquoise and Caicos were my GO TO colors this summer...probably my favorite ever. I actually just got mine done in one of the new OPI colors for the Muppets movie...I did "Designer...De Better" and think it's the perfect shade for the holidays! They have a glittery red too that I also LOVE!
