Ditch your regular manicure this holiday season in favour of a winter-fresh shade that makes you feel warm and snug, even as the weather starts to get a bit nippy. Nail your holiday look with these 7 trending butter LONDON nail lacquer colours—ranging from the classic holiday spirit to rising indie favourites—that will have you finding any excuse to go without gloves.
1. RICH PURPLE NAILS
For elegant nails that will transition easily from day to night and last all season, rich purple nails is your perfect match. We love the way this alluring shade plays into the winter theme of dark, moody colours while slightly subverting it with surprising warmth and depth. Rich purple is a no-think manicure colour that looks effortless and luxe in any occasion, whether snacking on some crisps or munching on scones at afternoon tea.

To put your own unique touch on this trend, try All Hail the Queen, a beige nail lacquer with a shimmering sparkle and holographic finish, for a lovely neutral manicure that gives a nod to the whimsy of the holiday season.
