How to Update This Hailey Bieber-Approved Holiday Nail Trend

Summer's aura nails didn't die when the temperatures dropped—Hailey Bieber wore them into the fall and winter, 

including during a trip to Tokyo to celebrate the opening of Tiffany & Co.'s Omotesando shop. 

Her Bottega Veneta gown was completed with a deep burgundy lip, slicked back ponytail, and lime-green aura dots.

With the upcoming sparklier season, there's even more chance to experiment with the aura nail trend. Julie Kandalec, 

celebrity manicurist and salon owner, receives a lot of requests for the aura nail trend and is delighted to bring it back for the Christmas season. 

Why is the style still popular? "It's a painterly way to wear multiple colors that isn't too graphic or in-your-face," Kandalec adds. "It's more Monet than Mondrian." 

To refresh the aura trend for the holidays, Kandalec suggests avoiding neon colors in favor of glittering tones that mimic tinsel and twinkling lights. 

Traditionalists would gravitate toward festive greens, golds, and reds, but I opted for Studio Gel in pink, purple, and iridescent opal from The GelBottle.
