Mani Monday: Heavy Metal Mani Musts


Forget the gobs of glitter and scads of shimmer that are synonymous with the holiday season. We’ve got heavy metal on the brain and we’re not talking Metallica! Though they’ll be perfect when the Olympics roll around, silky chrome colors have grown beyond you standard silver, gold, and bronze. Whether in a rich red, vibrant viridian, or a bold blue, these fresh hues can provide a fun spin on a holiday manicure.
