Tinsel, sequins and glitter… party season has arrived and it’s time to shine. From sparkling eyes to vibrant lips and bold nails, there are so many ways to channel festive shimmer, from head to toenails. N A I L I N G I T  The perfect punctuation point to a glowing tan—fake or otherwise—is a beautiful nail. Chanel’s limited edition gold sparkle topcoat, Le Top Coat Lamé Rouge Noir, has a tinted base; when worn on its own it will bring out pink tones in the nail. Pair it with your preferred shade for a glittery, glossy, high-octane nish. Illamasqua’s Scarab, a deep ruby metallic, makes for an impossibly glamorous evening manicure. Here, manicurist Jocelyn Petroni went for full Studio 54 glamour red—try OPI’s Venice or YSL’s La Laque Couture in Rouge Pop Art for a brilliant ruby colour.
