The holiday shopping season is upon us, so I have put together a fashionable Santana Row Holiday Gift Guide for the 2015 shopping season!

Dolce & Gabbana Antique Gold nail polish for holidays 2015

dolce and gabbana antique gold nail polish review

Pictured: c/o Dolce & Gabbana Antique Gold nail polish.

Dolce & Gababana Antique Gold nail polish is a beautiful, soft gold hue. This fabulous, pale metallic nail polish color is perfect for the 2015 holidays; as well as throughout the year.

It is always nice to have an amazing metallic nail polish color as part of your wardrobe throughout the year. Dolce & Gabbana Antique Gold nail polish is perfect as a nail polish collection staple since it is a soft gold hue which can be worn with any color palette.

Dolce & Gabbana Antique Gold nail polish is, naturally, the ultimate neutral nail polish for the holiday season. The metallic hue is festive, and sparkling; ideal for holiday parties and everyday wear. Not only is it festive for the holidays, it can transition into resort season, and the upcoming spring season too! Love that!

I tested out Dolce & Gabbana Antique Gold nail polish with one base coat, two coats of color, and one top coat. The nail polish lasted a full week before shipping. This is the perfect amount of time since after one week, my nail start to show nail growth, so my nail polish needs changing anyway.

If you are looking for a gift this holiday season for the nail polish fan on your list, this is the perfect gift! She will love the soft gold color, and luxurious nail polish formula. Everything about Dolce & Gabbana Antique Gold nail polish screams perfection. The application brush is easy to use, and the color is to-die-for. She will love it!

This is definitely my favorite nail polish for the 2015 holidays. I cannot wait to wear it to upcoming holiday parties, and on New Years Eve! Dolce & Gabbana nail polish will also be a fun color to wear during the spring 2016 season. I’m in love!

Dolce & Gabbana Antique Gold nail polish for the 2015 holidays can be found online here and here.
