Perfect Pair Barielle Midnight in Paris and Essie Summit of StyleHello world! Meet my holiday season 2014 manicure. I am obsessed with this combination of polishes and I like that it’s not your normal red and green holiday manicure yet still totally festive.

For my base color I used Barielle Midnight in Paris. The somewhat muted metallic finish of this polish is why I love it so much.

I wanted to add a bit of sparkle (shocking) so I did a glitter gradient with Essie Summit of Style.

These two polishes just work perfectly together. It makes me almost look forward to all the holiday gatherings. Actually, scratch that, nothing can make me look forward to holiday gatherings. But this manicure and some wine will get me through the season!

Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump!

    I. Love. This. It’s so glam yet still elegant and a nice departure from the whole red and green scene. Glitter gradients have got to be the prettiest and most wearable way to sport glitter. Tried one in a hurry once, and it did not work out well, I think I just need some practice.

What do you think?
