Celebrity manicurist Robbie Schaeffer offers his expert advice on how to get the perfect manicure just in time for the holidays.

Glitter and shimmer are the hottest nail trends this winter, said Schaeffer, who owns ROB|B Salon in Ventura, Calif. "Perfect for women of all ages, the bold textures add instant holiday sparkle to any look and bring glamour to many different occasions."

Shimmery nail lacquers give a festive pop of color, but there's more to a manicure than choosing the perfect shade. Hands need intense hydration to look and feel their best, Schaeffer said. He recommends OPI's Avoplex High-Intensity Hand & Nail Cream and arich cuticle oil to moisturize and protect hands and nails from harsh winter weather.
