Happy Holidays! If you’re getting your holiday nails done this week, we’ve got some inspo for you to take to the nail salon, or try at home. These fun holiday nails are festive but not over the top and many can even be worn through the end of the year.
1. Pretty Plaid
A classic winter/holiday pattern is plaid and it’s super cute on nails. Go with classic red and green or try something simple like green and gold. Plaid wears well throughout the winter, so you don’t have to limit these to Christmas!
2. Retro Christmas
If you’re a lover of all things retro, why not bring that into your nail designs? Mid-century-modern is a stunning design style that blends well with the holidays and will look super cute on your nails.
3. Christmas Candy
Looking for something sweet? Try a Christmas candy-inspired design with peppermints, and candy canes!
4. Tiny Trees
These adorable little trees make great accent nails or even a full set. If you want something more winter neutral, skip the Christmas elements on the tree and make it just a winter tree.
5. Festive Lights
Another festive design style is holiday lights! Little string lights are easy to add to any nail design and you can customize the colors to fit your style.
6. Winter Greenery
A great non-Christmas choice is winter greenery. Add some snow and little berries for a fun pop of color.
7. Holiday Swirl
Like a more abstract design that gives holiday vibes without being over the top? A nice red, white and green swirl design is perfect for the holiday season.
8. Santa Hat
If you do want something that shouts Christmas, try these super cute Santa hat french tips for a pop of Christmas on your nails.
