ALL IN THE DETAILS: Sparkle and Shine

The holidays are quickly approaching, and that means the perfect excuse to bust out anything, and everything, sparkly! From holiday parties to family dinners, you’ll literally steal the spotlight in sequins and sparkles this season.

Sequin peplum tops, sparkly booties and even bedazzled phone cases have been popping up all over the place this year and what better way to end the year than with one of the hottest trends—in an alternative way? I spotted this Fashionista on the way to the library (who says you can’t study in style?!) and was taken away by her sparkly ombré manicure. This little detail added so much to her overall appearance and, as you already know, it really is all in the details! Glitter-covered nails is an easy way to always have a little shine in every outfit, and choosing a subdued pink makes this trend suitable for any occasion.

Besides a perfectly polished mani, our Fashionista was rocking some other cute accessories. Her tan and gold leather watch went perfectly with her cappuccino-colored scarf, and her all-black ensemble popped with a rich red cardigan. This perfect fall outfit stayed in the warm color family and is sure to have kept this stylish student warm as well.

How To: Whether going to your favorite nail salon or trying this trend yourself, make a statement with these glittery ombré nails! Try OPI’s You Pink Too Much from their Spotlight on Glitter 2014 Collection. Start out by painting just the tips of your nails, using light strokes, and add more glitter polish as you work your way up your nail bed. Don’t forget—for a perfect ombré, a seamless transition is key!
