‘Tis the season to be jolly, merry, eat, drink, spend time with family and friends. Also, let’s not forget to be classy during winter holidays. Instead of matching Christmas red and green shades on your outfits and risk to look too costumey, you should try to wear themed nails. If you want to have a perfect festive manicure, you should try the following nail designs for Christmas.
Top 4 Nail Designs for Christmas to Consider
1. Christmas Sweater
You can create a beautiful and complex nail design that reminds you of a Christmas sweater. Start by applying two base coats of shimmery red nail polish. Choose a dark red shade with some sparkle but not too glittery. Then, pick a white polish for the sweater’s pattern. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to create the pattern on your own. You can always use a nail stamp. White stamped colors and designs create an amazing effect on the red sparkly base coat.
2. Frosty the Snowman
If you want a cutter manicure, you should opt for a snowman on each of your fingernails. Or you can create this design on only certain nails, alternating them with simple ones on which you can draw small snowflakes. To make this pattern, you can use a superfine brush or a toothpick. Apply a slightly shimmery nail polish first as a base coat. Choose one that has blue and gray shades in it to create the look of the sky. Drop some small white dots to make the snowflakes on most of your nails. On both of your ring fingers, you can create a snowman, making two white circles, one on top of the other, and then add all the necessary details such as eyes, nose, buttons, and more.
3. Holiday Present Manicure
This is one of the prettiest nail designs for Christmas. Instead of drawing a fake bow on your ring fingers, you can simply glue a real tiny one on each of them. All you need are one-dollar tiny bows and a little nail glue. My personal pick for the base coat is a classy lavender shade. Apply this nail polish all over your nails, then draw some thin dotted lines across each nail. Use white polish for the stripes and black color for the dots. You don’t need an expert to create this look because it is a simple and modest one.
4. Shimmering Snowflakes
Even though the classic color for Christmas seem to be red, silver, and green, you can get creative and use other winter season-appropriate shades. For example, you can create beautiful snowflakes with dark blue or even violet shades. Alternate white and violet nail base. Make sure that the violet one has some sparkles or discreet glitter. On those nails on which you apply white base coats, draw larger violet snowflakes. If you can’t master more complex nail designs for Christmas, you can always purchase somealready made fake nailsand just glue them to your natural nails.
Wrapping It Up
All the above nail designs for Christmas are great ideas to try to stand out in the crowd and impress your friends. Get creative and design inspired polished manicures. From snowflakes to snowmen and other patterns, you will definitely be amazed by how well these ideas look on your nails.
