Yep, it’s December. I know I sound like a broken record, but seriously, where has this year gone? It feels like only yesterday I was getting my wardrobe ready for spring, and now I can’t leave the house without at least three layers on. Despite the cold weather, there are so many things to look forward to this month, from festive parties to time with loved ones and all the yummy Christmas food and drink. As a beauty editor, one thing that I’m particularly excited about is my December manicure appointment. I always get a little bit more creative with my nails at this time of year and swap out my usual brown and burgundy shades for something more fun. In fact, the sparklier the better, in my opinion.
Although my Instagram and TikTok feeds are already full of festive manicure ideas, from Christmas-themed
nail art to chrome finishes, I thought it was only right to reach out to Daisy Kalnina, founder and CEO of The Gel Bottle, to get an expert opinion on the nail colours we can expect to see everywhere this December. Intrigued? I thought so.
