10 Christmas-Themed Manicures To Get You Into The Holiday Spirit!

By  | 

We just found the quickest way to get into the holiday spirit. If you don’t have time for too much makeup and hair, get a Christmas-themed manicure! There’s no other time of the year for it.

So, if you’re going to get your nails done, screenshot your favourite look as reference, and get ready to pamper yourself with a mani.

1. The Black Soul

Well, if you love black like I do, you don’t have to go green or red. Opt straight for black and gold! Plus, if you scroll to the next image, you’ll see a little how-to guide that you can provide your nail artist with, to recreate this look. This one is just as perfect for NYE as it is for Christmas!

2. The Reindeer

How cute is this? A stark contrast to our previous nail look, this fits right into the happy spirit. It’s the perfect red with a little reindeer art that takes the cake. You don’t need false or long nails to rock it.

3. Snowflakes!

That ring finger nail is, by far, my favourite! I love sparkles and a metallic red. You can opt for just that, or if you’ve got time to spare for intricate nail art, then by all means, go all out! Christmas trees and snow equal the best kind of Christmas!

4. No Art Required!

If you don’t want to do anything intricate, then just opt for red. To amp that up, why not go with a chrome red? Chrome is all the rage, these days, isn’t it?

5. Just Red

And if you don’t want to opt for chrome, which can often be more expensive, then how about a good ‘ol red? A classic one that will look good all year round? Nothing as classic as the Louboutin red… so pick up a bottle for yourself this Christmas!

6. Nails For The Minimalist?

If you’re a minimalist, then give this geometric look a try. Go totally nude, with your nails, of course, and then get little blocks of cherry red, like so. It’s a super avant garde look if you like being alternative and standing out from the crowd.

7. The Cool-Girl Mani

I see this is for the cool-girl because it takes a cool girl to pull this off! Once again, geometric shapes and my favorite combination of  silver and red. It’s in the holiday spirit, without screaming Christmas!

8. Candy Cane Nails

You can achieve the candy cane look, which might just have you confusing your nails for candy… not great for nail biters, using green or red. You can even use both!

9. Green

Sick of all that red? Mix it up! Or maybe just opt for an emerald or hunter green manicure. I love that deep shade of green. It’s got a soothing effect.

10. More Than Gold!

To end with a bang, you can source little stones and gems at a stationary store, then take them to your manicurist to apply to chrome, or any, gold nails. They’re sure to have nail glue. Nothing makes a statement like 3D nail art.
