Nail Ideas That Will Make Your Most Merry Holidays Ever

December, decorating their homes with more lights than Paris, and practicing a perfect cork pop on New Year's Eve.  

Others favor subtle shimmer over overt festiveness, hardly dabbling in red and green. Same for Christmas nails. 

Winter makes peppermints feel seasonal, no matter how often you carry them. These nails are quite stunning in this manicure by Aistė Haas. 

Hard-candy Christma

Although nail art is a relatively new concept (nail polish has been around for less than a century), Emily Zheng's design feels ageless.  

Forest and foil

A basic French manicure is always acceptable, but the cutest holly embellishments make its white tips snowy. 

Festive French manicure

A great seasonal manicure does not need to be elaborate to be winter-ready. LA nail artist Sascha Rios used neutral colors to make the chrome-effect tips look like frosty champagne, which we would adore at a holiday party. 

Ethereal end

Haas's dazzling gold theme changes from nail each nail with French tips, solid nails, and swerving stripes. The gift-like nail is our favorite.  

Golden gift

A French manicure with red tips instead of white is great year-round, but Bellacures nail artist Hayley Dang made them Christmas-y with a few small embellishments on one accent nail. Red polish drops down and to one side with well placed white dots that say, “Santa was here.” 

Tip Santa’s hat

We will give you eight silver rings for your five gold ones. After a translucent beige base, Toronto nail designer Rebecca Ramsdale added dazzling, elevated silver stripes that curl across multiple nails to this insanely cool manicure.
