Update your holiday manicure game for under $20

You Queen

With festivities underway, it’s time to get some fresh paint on! A trick is to buy the nail polish before you go to the salon. In case you have any chips from wrapping presents or cooking, you’re still covered! Here are some of the newest shades from your local CVS that should be on your radar:

The word is out that the Essie Gel Couture really does work. Get that salon look at home and without UV lights. This is $18.50 and looks beautiful. The color will last and looks so shiny (this is the most expensive on the list, but well worth the investment).

A red polish that dries in a minute?! Almost seems too good to be true, but it does exist! For those at home manicures and pressed for time moments, the NYC In a Minute polish is a CVS gem! For $1.99 this is amazing.

A deeper metallic may be what you’re looking for. OPI’s This Silver’s Mine is one of the most gorgeous manicure shades I’ve seen in quite awhile. This is $9.99 and can even be worn into New Year’s Eve.

Zoya Polish is always a great quality manicure. Metallic mani’s are all the rage right now. Why not amp it up with a look that will glisten and shine. Trixie is that trendy color that fashionistas are clamoring for, only at $8.99.

CVS

Time to amp up your manicure with the hottest shade of the season: a haute red. Nothing says mistletoe moment more than a vibrant red shade of polish! Essie Nail Color in Fifth Avenue is that perfect red and at $9 you can’t say no.
