It's getting to be that time of year where you're invited to a lot of festive holiday social events. Thanksgiving and the December holidays create a huge opportunity to flaunt your style but it can also be a little daunting to have to come up with a different outfit for so many engagements. There are a few ways to make a little black dress go the extra mile and it seems like we know most of them by heart—add a sparkly cardigan, decorative scarf, bib necklace or other bold statement jewelry like cuffs, huge earrings, or fabulous shoes. But, we don't talk about manicures that often as a way of differentiating your style or making a statement. There's a new trend in nails called the Velvet Manicure. It's gorgeous and perfect for the holiday season. It adds fabulous texture to your nails thus making them look soft and well, velvety. It's a fun departure from the classic short red or French tip manicure but not so over the top as to make it unwearable for all.
