Nail Designs with a Christmas Symbol

Can you imagine any holiday nail art without the holiday symbol itself? In this case, we have in mind a Christmas tree.

Yet, it should vibrate with that holiday spirit that the air is filled with.

Holiday Nails Designs with Santa’s Helpers

Do not forget about Santa’s little helpers, the elves! Freshen up your holiday mani! But in case it is not your cup of tea, there is nothing wrong with going a little stricter. Just a simple combo of white, red, and dark green shades will still carry that holiday vibe in as perfectly.

Charming Poinsettia Nail Art

Poinsettia is another sweet holiday attribute, that is why we think that introducing it into your holiday manicure is more than appropriate. Add this charming pattern to the white base and then enhance it with sparkly red and green tones added to the rest of your nails. Or, you can take it even further and combine it with cat eye mani, upgraded with tricky French tip with a large snowflake on the top. The choice is yours!

Holiday Nails with Presents

Holidays are all about presents, that is why decorating your nails with lovely present-like patterns is a nice and cute idea. Keep it simple, sticking to red and gold shades, or get head over heels creative and depict the whole Santa-bringing-the-presents creative!

Deer for Christmas Nails

Bring the deer in for the Christmassy spirit! If smiley faces of good old Santa Clause and his reindeers are not for you, you can always opt for a nice deer-shaped pattern over your solid baby blue base!

Snowflakes Accent

Many people limit snowflake patterns to definite shades, like white and blue. We say, why not to go all-in and opt for bright red and white combo? If that is too bold for you, nude shades look astonishing with a gentle gold snowflake pattern on. What is your choice going to be?
