It's the most wonderful time of the year! Parties for hosting, marshmallows for toasting and cute outfits to boot. This is a season of thankfulness, togetherness and lots of sparkle. The stores have been getting ready for Christmas since before Halloween, but these clean nail colors are perfect for taking you from Friendsgiving get-togethers all the way into the New Year. And the fact that they don't contain the same chemicals as most conventional polishes is the icing on the nontoxic cake. 

Check out these beautiful, chic and super festive colors:

1. Phenomenon By Mischo Beauty – $ 8.50

This shimmery red is like Christmas fabulosity in a bottle. Mischo has definitely gone above and beyond by going ten-free with their polishes. The company states their shades contain no "Formaldehyde, no Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), no Toluene, no Formaldehyde Resin, no Camphor, no Ethyl Tosylamide, no Xylene, no Triphenyl Phosphate, no tert-butyl hydroperoxide, and no parabens – all ingredients that have been known to contribute to cancer, birth defects, reproductive issues, nausea, light-headedness, headaches and more. Mischo Beauty nail lacquers are vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, gluten-free and void of artificial fragrances." 

What more could you ask for this holiday season?
