It’s a crowd-sourced Mani Monday today, guys! The crowd? Twitter. A simple search for the hashtag #manimonday bestowed upon us this manicure from @PPFGirl. I’m loving this particular nail look for a few reasons. One, it’s simple. You only need two polishes–your favorite shade, and a glitter to accent. Two, it seems like it would be hard to mess up. A typical french tip seems to require (at best!) a level of poise, composure, and dexterity that I haven’t yet attained. If Mani Mondays have taught us anything, it’s that nails are most definitely an art form…one that I, unfortunately, haven’t yet completely mastered. With a clear glitter varnish taking the place of the classic white strip, however, any imperfection is hardly noticeable! Love that. Third, the deep, creamy grey seems totally seasonally appropriate. I always gravitate toward dark polish hues as the weather gets colder, and I also totally appreciate that this manicure isn’t overtly holiday-inspired. There aren’t leaves, turkey feathers, or tiny jingle bells. Just classic, classy, glossy tips with a little extra jaziness and sparkle. Perfect for Thanksgiving, no?

Have you put any thought into your holiday nail game?
