Talk to me about getting into the holiday spirit by watching Christmas movies, planning Holiday decorations, putting on some jolly tunes, and living in your cozy ugly sweater all the effin’ time.
But when you really wanna get out of the way, the best thing to do is a Merry Manicure! And, I’m telling ya, it absolutely makes sense if you completely wanna switch to Christmas nails right after Halloween to get into full-on Santa swing!
