December 1: How will you incorporate pink into the season?

December 2: What's the first thing you do to kick off winter?

December 4: What fashion are you into right now?  Do you prefer old stand-bys, or are there new trends this year that have caught your eye?

December 5: Winter scents!  What EDTs are you wearing?  What candles are you burning?  What other scents say "holiday" to you?

December 6: Ornaments aren't just for the tree!  What hair ornaments are you wearing, or would you like to wear?  And of course what type do you like on the tree?

December 11: If you could pull one awesome beauty gift out of a grab bag, what would it be?

December 17: Favorite holiday movie (or TV) characters?  It could be a lead, or an obscure character.

December 18: Dish on greeting cards!  The good, the bad, and the boring.  And don't forget the little touches like stamps, stickers, etc.

December 19: Jewels, jewels and more jewels.  Do you want jewelry this year?  What pieces fill you with wonder?  Do you have go-to items that you wear this time of year?

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@QueenMarceline I love designs like that but I, too, have baby nails.  I break them faster than I can grow them ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CookieGirl1 Oh trust me, story of my life๐Ÿคฃ Love living vicariously through the BIC though โค๏ธ

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 3: What holiday nail trend would you love to try?

 

This is cheating because I've already tried it a couple years ago but I always look forward to doing "sweater" nails. I usually do an accent nail only but maybe this year I'll do them all. 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@AznAngelLiz have fun with it and please post 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Quick picks:

 

Vintage or modern decor?  I am more of a modern decor with some vintage touches

 

Bows or ribbons?  Bows are easier

 

Isicle or snowflake?  Snowflake , I am a snow lover!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CorgiMommy I agree! Snowflakes โ„๏ธ leave so many different designs possible too! โค๏ธ

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@QueenMarceline I know snowflakes are magical 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 3:  what nail trend would you like to try?

 

I don't do my nails but I would love a more wintery theme:  white, silver and light blue

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

That's a pretty color palette @CorgiMommy plus, white is classy winter or not. 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@AznAngelLiz thank you

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@greeneyedgirl107 Thank you so much for keeping the holiday question threads going! 

 

 

December 1: How will you incorporate pink into the season?

 

Hmm... I don't really use a lot of pink in my holiday decor. I'm pretty traditional so it's a lot of red, green, silver, and gold. 

 

December 2: What's the first thing you do to kick off winter?

 

Put on the Christmas music! It's pretty much all I listen to all December long. 

 

December 3: What holiday nail trend would you love to try?

 

I'm very much out of the loop on current nail trends. But I always love reaching for my Dashing Diva sets for holiday nails since they have such cute designs.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@quspork Do you have a favorite Christmas song or artist(s)? I can usually listen to a few songs at a time but hubby is all about Christmas music all month and into January too LOL. 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@AznAngelLiz I'm a sucker for the classics- Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, all the crooners. But I also love the Peaceful Holidays station on Pandora which is all slow, instrumental Christmas music. It's just nice to have on in the background when I'm doing other stuff. It's funny, we sound like couple opposites- my husband can tolerate a little bit of my holiday music playing but definitely not as into it as I am!  

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@quspork I agree more traditional colors for the holidays but pink and red outfits would be fun.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@quspork it was my pleasure to host this thread!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Dec 3- I am wearing Big Apple Red by OPI which is definitely my favorite red nail polish. Only difference is that this year I started wearing gel powder instead of just gel nail polish. I get my nails done every 4-5 weeks.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@Loretta55 Big Apple Red is such a classic staple โค๏ธ wore it the entire time I was in NYC during the summer.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

I agree it is such a classic color @QueenMarceline. Hope you had fun in NYC .

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

I love a good red anytime of year but especially during December @Loretta55

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@Loretta55 nothing wrong with red for the holidays
