Tinsel isn’t the only thing with sparkle this holiday season, as suggested by Robbie Schaeffer. Celebrity manicurist and owner of ROB|B, Schaeffer shares his tips for a perfect manicure this holiday season.

“Glitter and shimmer are the hottest trends in nails this winter, as seen in OPI’s new Burlesque collection,” says Schaeffer. “Perfect for women of all ages, the bold textures add instant holiday sparkle to any look and bring glamour to many different occasions.”

Another trend this holiday season is shimmering nail lacquers. Whether it stands alone or is used with layering accents, the lacquer will leave a festive pop of color. However, Schaeffer warns that there is more to a manicure than selecting the right shade of Nail Lacquer. Moisturizing the skin is crucial in maintaining healthy, beautiful hands.

“With winter in full force, nails and hands are in dire need of intense hydration to look and feel their best,” explains Schaeffer. “It’s critical to maintain each manicure with a high intensity cream to deliver essential moisture and soothing relief from the cold weather, harsh winds, and dry indoor heat. Cuticle oil like OPI Avoplex Cuticle Oil to-go is perfect to throw in any purse and reduces dry, flaky skin and hangnails with Vitamin E, avocado, sunflower, sesame and kukui nut oils."So don’t forget to pack the cuticle oil and lotion this winter season.
