It’s time to start thinking about your holiday nails. If visions of red manis are already dancing through your head, we’re here to shake things up. This year, we’re considering a swap of epic proportions. We’re going for green nail polish this holiday season.

Our dark greens picks range in color from smoky shades to rich, luxe options that are the ideal match when coupled with a bit of sparkle. To that end, we even included one wild card that abounds with a dizzying array of holiday twinkle—no matte green nails here.
