Looking for fun and festive holiday nail trends? We’ve got you covered. It’s time to say goodbye to pastels and hello to classic reds, muted greens and fabulous holiday-inspired designs that you’ll want to wear all season long.
This season there is no shortage of nail designs that will get you into the holiday spirit. From gingerbread house motifs, candy cane swirls and snowflakes, the options are limitless. These designs are oh so adorable – and are guaranteed to be all over your social media feeds.
Winter French Manicure
Another go-to look this season is a winter french manicure – a festive twist on a traditional classic manicure. You can achieve this look by simply alternating a French mani with a hand-drawn snowflake design. The snowflake design is intricate and beautiful, making them the perfect symbol of winter beauty. Get ready to channel your inner snow goddess!
You can never go wrong with a classic true red polish. It’s a great way to spice up your neutral winter wardrobe. I always reach for OPI’s “A Little Guilt Under The Kit.” It’s a timeless rich red hue that transcends seasons, but really shines bright during the holidays.
Glitz + Glam
The holiday season is all about glitz and sparkle! However, you don’t need to wear full glitter nails to get in on this trend. Try adding glitter onto the tips of your nails for a glitter French manicure design. It’s the perfect option if you want to add some sparkle and shine in a more subtle way.
Ice Blue Ombre
Ice queens – this trend is for you! If you want to rock the ice queen aesthetic, a shimmery blue or silver polish is the perfect colour combo for ombre nails. This trend is the ‘coolest’ accessory for any winter activity and looks great on both longer and shorter nails.
Sweet As Candy
Candy Cane-inspired nails are sure to bring holiday cheer. A mint green base paired with a candy cane tip looks like a tasty treat that will keep you looking sweet.
