The holidays are upon us, and if there’s one small thing that can get us through, it’s new winter nail polish colors. Well, it’ll probably take more than that, but a bit of sparkle and shine will help make our season a little more bright and merry.

Luckily, our favorite nail brands are offering fresh new sets of lacquer and other mani accouterments to get our digits Christmakwanzakah-ready. Whether sold separately or in a set, the latest collections are calling our names. From varnish to oils to lotions to jewels to tools, you’ll find some fierce new nail treats to gift yourself or a friend.

Glitter is a perennial December favorite, as are jewel tones and darker cool-weather colors. We’re seeing a lot of champagne and iridescent shades this year that will surely make a statement at your New Year’s Eve festivities. As always, anything goes when it comes to nails, so get to painting (or pressing on). It’s the holidays, nail accordingly!
