#9 is making us want to invest in nail stickers.
We never get sick of seeing the quintessential red and green Christmas color combo in our holiday decor, with our Christmas tree, and even on our cookies for Santa this time of the year. But seeing the color combination on our nails can feel a little ... on the nose. Fear not — there are plenty of seasonably appropriate nail art palettes with different colors to choose from — like red and gold, for example.
These red and gold nails are festive enough to show off at your next holiday party but also universal enough to wear year-round. Because while we love winter nail art (especially those pretty poinsettias!), we also love a low maintenance design we can wear into the new year — because the holidays are already busy enough as it is. Get your acetone handy, because these are the best red and gold nail designs to inspire your next look. P.S., if you're looking for some non-toxic nail polish brands to get the job done, we definitely have some recommendations.
The Red Heifer: A speech pathologist in Texas was asked to sign a contract addendum affirming that she would not boycott Israel during the term of her contract with the state. She refused. Her contract was not renewed. She had been with the school district for nine years and is now suing over violations of her freedom of speech. At the University of Michigan, controversy arose after a professor declined to write a reference letter for a student intending to study abroad in Israel. He cited his political beliefs and practice of BDS as his reason. The university disciplined him, revoking his annual raise and cancelling his planned sabbatical. The American Association of University Professors, an organization which explicitly does not endorse BDS on the grounds that academic boycotts violate the principles of academic freedom, criticized the university’s response. Civil rights activist Angela Davis was slated to receive an award from the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, until it was withdrawn after BCRI received complaintsabout Davis’s outspoken support for BDS.
