Picture your favorite sweater, curled up with a cozy plaid throw, sipping a cup of hot chocolate next to a fire. Can you picture it? This is the vibe right now in the nail world.

Hot chocolate manicure by Cyerra Kemp at East Village Spa
Cyerra created a nude and chocolate swirl manicure with hot cocoa accent nails to showcase the popular shades this season. Featuring Gala Girl, Sweet Cider, Cream Puff, and Arrowhead in CND Shellac.

Festive velvety reds popular this holiday season like Bordeaux Babe and Cherry Apple Red.

Olive greens like Cap and Gown are a good alternative to jewel tone greens this season.

Cyerra used Cap and Gown as the green (with Matte top coat) in this design that combines christmas trees and sweater nails.

Experiment with different finishes

A high gloss manicure will always look great, but this season, people are experimenting with mix and match finishes including gel-effect and matte top coats.

Prints are in!

Don’t be afraid to mix and match prints! Tortoise shell and leopard nail designs are still in, and sweater prints and plaids are hitting the scene just in time for the holidays.

Cyerra did this leopard print manicure using CND Vinylux and nail art brushes for the details.
