12 Christmas Nail Art Ideas That Take Seconds to Create
During the holidays, we go hard with our seasonal aesthetic and even harder with our Christmas nails. Ornate hair accessories, candy cane-flavored everything, and advent calendars filled with goodies have become our shameless norm every year. This year, round out your festive look with one of these 12 simple (and merry) nail art ideas that will spread holiday cheer.
Candy Cane Tips
These tips are the perfect amount of cheery, and add just a sprinkle of festivity to your look. Rock red and white to match or green to complement, but whichever you choose, don't forget the red lipstick!
All of the Lights
We are obsessed with the colors in this mani, but the fact that it looks just like a string of Christmas lights makes us love it even more.
If you're not sure what kind of nail to go for, you can always fall back on a shimmery metallic. Silver and gold definitely count as neutrals during this time of year.
A Royal Affair
To spice up any look, add a few gems to the top of your nails. Whether you form them into a pattern or place them randomly, consider them like jewelry for your nails.
Top off a white base coat with some shimmer for an instant, and easy, holiday shine.
Guide My Sleigh Tonight
Red nails are chic, timeless, and very festive. We approve!
We love how clean a white mani is, and the holiday season is the perfect time to experiment with a few different looks. Spice them up with some shimmer, add a red or green accent nail, or keep them strictly snowy.
With just a touch of color, this look is perfect for minimalists everywhere. Try it with silver, green, or red depending on your outfit.
Deck the Halls
Why pick one holiday color when you can have them all?!
Under the Tree
Try your hand at some nail art that everyone will love. Christmas trees, presents, and snowmen are all great ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
We're pretty sure that even the most cynical of grinches will adore these nails!
A Flutter of Flurries
Just a tiny bit of shimmer looks amazing over a bold red. This flurry-esque detailing will hold us over while we dream of a white Christmas.
