Check out 7 stunning Christmas nail designs to make a statement this season…
#1. Silver holographic glitter
There’s always room for glitter this season, whether that’s on your outfit, makeup, or nails. While red dust of glitter is often the famous option, a sparkly delight of silver is very welcome. What’s more, silver complements most skin tones, so there’s no reason you shouldn’t try it out.
#2. Gold arch manicure
If silver isn’t your cup of hot chocolate, then you can give gold a chance. However, rather than going full-on gold, you can opt for a gold detailing just on the tip of your nails. It gives the illusion of longer nails and of course, who doesn’t need that this season?
#3. Green tortoise shell nails
While several ladies would tread the green path in order to stick to the holiday theme, you can still follow that route but in style. Yes, plain green nails can be boring, however, green tortoise shell nails is a hit. You can either try this Christmas nail design with both long or short nails and the result will certainly be the same.
#4. Ombré french manicure
There’s something irresistibly stunning about the ombré effect, especially when it comes to nails. Although you can choose to have various shades of a particular color on your nails, this wouldn’t fit the girl who’s drawn to simplicity. If this girl is you, then you can try out the ombré effect but with French manicure. I bet nothing would please your soul quite as these nails.
Who doesn’t like a bit of chill? No one ever! A frostbite Christmas nail design is one you can try, especially if you appreciate rich details. While you can explore this option with colors like red, blue, and even purple, a subtle yet striking variation like the one below is totally awesome.
#6. Candy cane
As stated earlier, most of the nail designs in this article is one you can get done yourself, and this surely one of such. Candy cane is super easy that all you have to do is use a few coats of your favorite Christmas color and you’re good to go. Yes, it’s that simple.
#7. Negative space glitter
The negative space nail trend is still burning in full steam so why not hop on? Since it’s the season of merriment (and sparkle), glitter is a season-appropriate way to wear the trend. The key to nailing (pun intended) this style is to create one or a series of patterns using the negative space. For example, you can “pattern-out” hearts, squiggly lines, Santa’s hat, or even your initials. Let your creativity roam free.
