The lights, the decorations, and ALL. THE. SHOPPING.

That's why we've created the perfect holiday to-do list for you. With the ultimate balance of classic spots, mixed in with a few of our favorite NYC hidden gems, this will surely be a December to remember.
The Windows on Fifth Ave.
A swoon-worthy sight, and the name-sake of one of our holiday nail wrap kits
, the 5th avenue window displays are the perfect way to get in the holiday spirit (and get those steps in)! Walk the avenue and check out the amazing creations at Bergdorf Goodmans, Macy's, Tiffany & co., and of course Saks Fifth Avenue.

Dyker Heights Holiday Lights
While we're on the topic of stunning lights, stroll over to the less spoken about (although we're not sure why) Dyker Heights. This Brooklyn neighborhood is lined with fabulous lights and festive decorations that are sure to bring you some holiday cheer.
You can't talk about the holiday season in NYC without mentioning Rockefeller Center. From the magnificent tree to the ice skating rink, it's no surprise that this iconic spot not only received a spot on this list but also was the inspiration for one of our adorable holiday collection nail wrap
The Iconic Rockefeller Tree
The Rockettes at Radio City
Another necessary part of the NYC holiday season is watching the Rockettes. You can get a ticket to see them perform their iconic Christmas Spectacular show from now until January 2nd at the Radio City Music Hall. And if you need the perfect mani to go with your showtime outfit, look no further than our Rockette nail wrap

Bryant Parks Winter Village
The final inspiration for our Home for the Holidays nail wrap collection
an NYC must-see is the Winter Village at Bryant Park. Featuring Hot cider, an ice skating rink, and all the perfect gift ideas you could ever want, this spot truly has it all.

Union Square Holiday Market
If you didn't get your fill at the Winter Village, swing by the Union Square Holiday Market. With cute vendors galore and arguably the best hot chocolate in the city
this is the perfect way to cap off the ultimate NYC holiday to-do list.
