With Christmas a mere two weeks away, all festive to-dos are slowly getting ticked off the list. From putting up the ornament-filled Christmas trees to purchasing gifts for loved ones, from singling out your best holiday outfit to planning out elaborate feasts – the merriest time of the year is experiencing its busiest days. Amidst all that bustle though, there must be time dedicated for some much-needed pampering. And what better way than sleigh-ing with a stunning set of nails!
Understandably, once you start scouring around for some nail art inspiration, you’ll soon fall into a whirlwind of designs. The possibilities are near endless when it comes to this – classy and elegant styles to more cutesy and fun patterns – it’s no easy feat picking out a favourite. But worry not, here’s a little curated list of Christmas nail designs that’ll make your hearts swell with festive excitement (and get you booking that next manicure appointment!).
Reach for pure elegance with the colour of the season – no frills and extras, just a gloss of bold. Traditional yet versatile, this manicure complements any outfit you put together perfectly. There’s simply no going wrong with this one.
Whether you find yourself surrounded by wintry slopes or you’re nestled somewhere warm and cosy, snowflakes will always be a holiday-themed manicure essential. Beginning with a light base coat of choice and then followed by a layer of shimmer, the final touch to this manicure would be intricately drawn snowflakes.
With a classic French manicure base, this jolly set is prettified with a cute red ribbon and a bow in the centre that ‘wraps’ it up. Being the season’s best gift yourself, it’s only acceptable to flaunt your nails that match. If you’re one for variety, experiment with different hues for your French tips and turn your gifts colourful!
Sparkle ‘n shine
Let your nails drip with glitter, because let’s be honest, everything’s better with a little bit of dazzle. These nails bring you one step closer to fulfilling the life of the party agenda – the ideal bling to your Christmas manicure.
Toss the Confetti
The embodiment of the holiday spirit, these confetti-decorated nails are iconic yet simple to recreate. All that’s needed is a swap of your preferred base colour and then upon it, apply some (or as much) confetti as your heart desires. The best part: the confetti comes in assorted shapes, making your manicure all the merrier.
A nail art design that truly lets your artistic skills shine, these mismatched nails brings all your most favourite bits of the festivities to a single manicure. Unleash your creativity with this one because you can honestly find them all – from a winter skier to Santa Claus, candy canes and even the wordings ‘Ho Ho Ho’. This design is a must-try for anyone who adores pretty art.
Christmas, in Monochrome
Looking to stir things up a little and move away from the explosion of hues? Behold, your design of dreams. With a liquid chrome base, this charming set reimagines the holidays in shades of black and white. With painted snowflakes, a bow and even a candy cane-inspired art, this unique set will surely remain as one to remember.
Santa Tell Me
What’s Christmas without the legendary man in red himself? These stunning set is an artistic dream come true – we personally recommend it for those who want to go all out this holiday! The design features Santa, a signboard to North Pole and even his signature Nice List. While it’s up to you as and how you wish to toy around with the nail art, this set acts as a wonderful inspo should you look to include Santa in your festive manicure.
