It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…on our nails.

The countdown to Christmas has begun and we are getting ready for the string of Secret Santa parties and family get-togethers by checking off our to-do list to look best for the season: Find the perfect outfit, keep the skin glowing with hydrating skincare, and buy holiday-themed makeup. But let’s not forget one important style point – nails!

After all, we’ll want to look good even when unwrapping our gifts (and snapping close-ups with them for Instagram after) right? Whether you’re DIY-ing your nails or getting them done at the salon this year, here are some staple festive polish shades and matching nail art designs for inspiration.
