23 Nail Art Ideas That Are Perfect For This Festive Season

nail-art-ideas-that-are-perfect-for-this-festive-season

Did somebody say “holiday nail art?” Well, I did! Although fashion is often the focal point of any slay, it’s impossible to discount the importance of a good manicure, and this holiday, the designs are coming in hot! From over-the-top embellishments to subtle takes, the latest offerings are more than enough to tickle the fancy of any style girl.

As expected, a ton of nail art for the season comes correct with the colors of the moment — red, green, and gold. While this is great for those who love to go all-out to embody the Christmas spirit, not every girl falls into this category. For the ladies in the latter group, you’ll be glad to find out that there are other “regular” tones that aren’t so in your face but are still impossibly stunning. Trust me, there’s nothing regular about the resulting nail art you can create with them.

When choosing the holiday nail art for your festive slay, the first step is to opt for a manicure that suits your preference. While shimmer and shine is the mood of the moment, it doesn’t serve you if you’re the girl who prefers something more subtle. That is to say, regardless of the trends, it doesn’t make sense to hop on that train if it doesn’t ride you to where you’d rather be. Once you decide on a design that floats your boat, you can then proceed to select what you’ll be rocking this season. Here are a few of our favorite picks below.

Check out 22 holiday nail art designs that weigh heavy for the season… 

#1. Checks & patterns

In my humble opinion, patterns are some of the most interesting designs for the festivities because there’s really no ceiling to how high you can go. While the most obvious is the Christmas theme checkers pattern, there are also other options like cute bows to steal your heart.

#2. Shimmer & shine

It’s the season of sparkle so go all out and shine! Whether you go full-on shimmer or you tread the subtle route and shine in an updated French manicure, the odds are in your favor and there’s no way you can mess this up. So, keep shining girl!

#3. Chic & solid

Despite the glittering mood of the manicured space this festive period, there’s still room for solid tones. The classic reds are tried and trusted but you can take things up a notch by playing with multiple tones. This holiday nail art is easy but is certainly not boring.

#4. Frosty

Bring the ice girl because even the weather is in your favor. Icicles, snowflakes, white nail polish, and others shine with the frosty design and are perfect for the super-duper cool girl. (Pun intended).
