It's also a time to play around with some colours you may not normally wear.
When I think of Christmas, I think of red, green and gold. Lots and lots of gold. The colour can come across tacky during other months of the year, but in December there is something so sophisticated and glamorous about gold.
The colour I have is called Goldeneye by OPI and it was part of their Holiday 2012 Skyfall Collection, which was released around the same time as the latest James Bond movie. It's a yellow-toned gold with small glitters. It's such an attention seeker! I have never had more compliments from a nail polish than when I wear this one.
So don't be shy and bring out your glamorous side - add a little gold to your life.
