Christmas Nail Art

Christmas Nail Art

Another holiday is upon us, and you know what that means. Time for some themed nail art! Here are the best Christmas manicures we’ve found.

A lot of these manicures look complicated, but all you need is a nail art pen to draw most of these designs. Sally Hansen’s come in a rainbow of colors are available at any drugstore.

Candy Cane: Paint your nails with two coats of red polish. Using a white nail art pen, draw the candy cane stripes. You also try drawing lines of varying thicknesses, depending on how you want the stripes to look.

Peppermint: Similar to the candy cane, but you draw white lines from the center of the nail to create a peppermint swirl.

Snowflakes: Start off with a navy or dark blue basecoat. A nail art pen will be too thick for this design, so use a toothpick and white polish to draw the snowflakes.

Red and Green Glitter: If drawing isn’t your forte you can always paint on some red and green glitter polish

Red and Green Matte: We’ve written about matte polish before and all of the manicure possibilities it offers. The blogger Goose’s Glitter has created a simple Christmas themed mani using red and green mattes.

Marbled: We found this super abstract manicure on Pinterest. First you water marble your nails (how-to video here) and then add a glitter top coat. 

Holly: Add greenery to your nails by drawing tine holly leaves and berries.
