The holiday season is just around the corner which means there will be tons of partying and eating out with family and friends. You probably have an idea on what you’re going to wear come Christmas but most likely you’re wondering how to dress up your nails to complete your festive mood. Fortunately, you don’t have to stick with the same old nail colors and designs because there are plenty of nail art ideas that you can mix and match with your outfit. If you are looking for designs to grace your nails, here are a few worth trying out.
Change your nails to match your holiday sweater. If you have plenty of time in your hands, you can do the design yourself or if you’re in a rush, go for the premade appliques for quick application. This fancy design will definitely be an eye-catcher for sure.
There is nothing wrong with sticking with solid colors but why make your nails look boring when you can liven it up with a bit of snowflakes? Apply your favorite solid color then add some holiday nail decals of your choosing on each nail. Seal the design with a clear top coat and you’re done! That’s how easy it is to make your nails more in tune with the holiday season.
If you are looking for a subtle nail design that will look gorgeous on your nails, adding a hint of icicles is the right way to go. Apply ice blue nail color then, when it is dry, apply thin streaks of different shades of gray on the ends of each nails. To finish this design, add some streaks of glitter nail polish to give your nails that hint of sparkle just like icicles.
How about some festive cross hatch nails to go with your holiday outfit? This is really simple to do. Start by applying your base color on your nails then once it has dried, choose two colors that you like to cross hatch over your nails. Apply a clear top coat to seal the art and make the design last longer.
You can never go wrong with white, it’s true, but if you are looking for an added pop to your nails, paint one nail with a silver or gold metallic polish. It will certainly draw attention to your nails and outfit for sure.
Sometimes too much nail color and art can make your hands look overwhelming especially when you’re wearing your favorite jewelries. To tone it down, simply apply a half moon on each nail and a clear top coat afterwards and you’re done. This way, they will be looking at your jewelries instead of your nails and the best part is that your hands will look absolutely gorgeous because of your nail design too.
Ode to the tree
Even though your nail color won’t last for months, you can still capture that holiday spirit by dressing your nails in the likeness of an evergreen tree. Apply dark green nail color for the base then use a toothpick to add tree branches using gold nail polish. Cover the entire nail with clear top coat to complete the design.
These are just a few examples of holiday nail art that will surely make your nails be part of your Christmas festivities. Playing with colors and mixing and matching them with holiday inspired nail art will make your nails stand out. For sure, you will be the talk of the party when they see your gorgeous nails.
