All of the Lights
Through the use of this shimmering, colorful mani that is quite literally lit, you may decorate your nails in the same manner that you would decorate your tree decorations. You may either have a nail technician reproduce this for you or you can do it yourself using a fine line brush. It all depends on your personal preference.
Let It Snow
To achieve this snowy manicure, all you need is some pearly white nail polish and a little amount of glitter. This manicure looks just as stunning on short nails as it does on medium and long Nail Designs. Certainly, it is a life filled with winter.
It is not necessary to wait until Christmas or New Year’s to have a holiday manicure. You can reproduce any of the styles on this list with Hanukkah vibes by using tones of blue, white, and silver. Alternatively, you can take some inspiration from this look and add some dreidels and Stars of David to a sophisticated navy blue base (for your information, these stickers from Olive & June can be helpful).
Is it possible to put together a Christmas manicure in only five minutes? You don’t need to worry for us. What you need to create a starry effect is a base coat that is extremely sparkly and some nail stickers with a Christmas motif that are easy to apply and can be purchased from Amazon for $6.
This is yet another simple and straightforward holiday manicure design that you can make at home. All you need is a toothpick or a dotting tool, along with a few festive colors (for example, a combination of green, red, gold, and white for Christmas, or blue, white, and silver for Hanukkah).
Considering that you always put a star on the top of your Christmas tree, why not do the same thing with your nails? This glittery manicure can be easily recreated with any two colors—a dark foundation and a metallic accent—and we can imagine that it will be one that you find yourself wanting to reimagine in a variety of different ways throughout the entire year.
First, there is nail art, and then there is nail art, and this particular look is an example of the second type of nail art, which is maximalist. Swarovski crystals produce a sparkling, three-dimensional appearance that works just as well on extremely short nails as it does on claws that are miles long; however, in order to try this one out on your own, you will most likely require the assistance of a professional who is very patient.
In order to embrace non-denominational holiday nail art, winter white shapes on a neutral foundation are a perfect method to do so. However, if you do not have the patience to have someone draw them on you, you are in luck. Olive & June’s nail stickers, which cost $8, include the tiniest white Christmas trees, making them an easy way to add a touch of decoration to your house.
Shimmery Candy Canes
Candy canes and glitter are two of the most enjoyable aspects of the holiday season, and this manicure takes both of those elements and reimagines them as nail art. You should be aware, however, that every time you look down at your hands, you might find yourself wishing for a delicious peppermint treat.
Holiday Jelly Chrome
The fact that this manicure is not your usual green and gold manicure is a very nice thing for anyone who is sceptical about the concept of having nails decorated with a Christmas motif. This holiday-appropriate style blends two of the most popular nail trends of this year—chrome and sheer jelly—and combines them in a way that will make your holiday manicure feel more sophisticated.
Greetings, nails for the New Year! More of a statement may be made by embellishing your traditional silver sparkles with a splash of white. This can be done in the form of flames, as you see above, or any other shape of your choosing.
Parts that are equal This manicure, which is part of the “Christmas” and “New Year’s Eve” collections, features a traditional evergreen color with two accent Nail Designs that are inspired by disco balls on each hand. And what is the most exciting part? In order to make it for yourself, all you need is a bottle of green nail paint, such as Essie’s Off Tropic ($16), some biodegradable glitter, such as the one sold by Manucurist Paris ($9), and a dream.
Cherry Red French
To add a touch of merriment to your traditional French manicure, paint the tips of your nails cherry red rather of the white that you normally use. In order to create a monochromatic beauty moment that will look absolutely gorgeous beneath the mistletoe, you should pair this look with red liner.
There is no requirement for you to abandon your typical neutral Nail Designs in order to get into the spirit of the Christmas season. You could, as an alternative, give your most cherished nudes a touch of depth by adding a single gold stripe along the middle of the garment. This would be both on-theme and stylish.
This geometric style is anything but basic, despite the fact that the most obvious approach to embrace holiday nails is to choose a combination of red and gold. The first step is to apply a foundation coat of burgundy paint, wait for it to dry completely, and then guide the placement of the gold graphic elements that you paint on top of the base coat with tape. A word of advice? Once you have this look down pat, you will be able to reproduce it throughout the entire year because it is equally as wonderful with any two tones that contrast with one another.
If you want to make sure that your holiday manicure is different from everyone else’s appearance at the office Christmas party, one method to do it is to create an abstract work of art using your favorite red nail paint. Begin with a base coat that is neutral, such as LondonTown’s Teatime ($16), and then use a dotting tool to finish it off by applying lines, waves, and half-moons in a shade that is darker.
Keeping things basic while still being appropriate for the season may be accomplished by inserting a single crystal stone on each Nail Designs. This will make your short manicure look more natural and will make it shine even brighter when illuminated by holiday lights.
It is our opinion that: French tips that have been dipped in gold are the ideal accessory for any unboxing (or, at this time of year, unwrapping) material that you will create during this spring and summer season. One of our favorite looks is one that is easy to reproduce but exudes an air of instant luxury.
In the event that a simple gold French manicure does not provide the level of festive cheer that you are looking for, you can enhance the look by adding some embellishments that are tastefully placed, like as the stars and stones that are shown below.
Gold Foil Accent
Move over, dazzle of gold; gold foil is on its way to take your place on the throne. The dimensional accent Nail Designs that is featured in this look was made with the help of CND’s Over the Top Effects Kit, which costs $55 and is really simple to apply on your own. First, you will need to prepare your Nail Designs with the transfer gel and allow it to cure (for this step, you will use a UV lamp). After that, you may use your fingers or a tool to carefully apply the decorative gold on top of the nail before allowing it to cure twice more.
