The 7 Merry Nail Colors Our Editors Are Eyeing This Season

hether you choose glitzy colorful nails to set the holidays off or opt for laid-back neutral options with exciting touches of fun designs, we can all agree that merry nail colors are subjective to mood, occasion, personality, and of course, our pockets. Whatever boosts your mood and confidence is a plus, but staying afloat on nail trends can also do the trick.

This year, the holiday nail colors blend between the classics and trendy. They make room for experimentation with a mix of colors, textures, and finishes — that’s the typical vibe the holiday brings. Nothing is off limits, and with all the events lined up for the season, the merrier, the better.

These merry nail colors have our editors in their holiday feelings…

#1. We are REDY

Nothing screams holiday nails like red hot options. However, if you aren’t bent on a bold pop and want to take a minimalist approach, choose accents of red or a deeper shade.

Get the party started with interesting takes like the moonstone milky effect or the galaxy vibe of opals. You could choose to use the colors but in matted options. To keep it delightful, place gemstone embellishments on nude nail polish. Gemstones always shine through the basics.

When you’re in a fix about merry nail colors to try out this season, pick across the palette. The trick to staying put together amid a color burst is to opt for colorful tips and a neutral base.

Holiday nail options are endless, and with black nails trending all year round, they serve as a perfect base for experimenting with different colors and designs. They might not be your typical holiday nail go-to, but they are sophisticated and unique.

The yuletide season has green as one of its official colors, and thankfully green nails are lit, festive, and the perfect dose of color to reinvigorate your nail game.

Lilac is such a subtle hue that makes an impact without being too much. A polished yet one of the merry nail colors trending this season. Lilac accents or swirl designs can set things straight.

A breath of fresh air and loads of sunshine comes with the color yellow. If the season has sprinkled some of that vibe your way, yellow nails may be a way to channel this happy energy. Either keep the shades mellow to avoid a loud statement, or play with the neon options.
