Sneak some reindeer and Christmas tree designs into your neutral fair isle manicure like this one.

As far as Christmas nail art goes, we’re loving the cable knit sweater trend. Combined with a Christmas-y red, it’s so festive and gorgeous! We’re picturing the perfect makeup to go with these nails features deep red eye shadow and ruby red lips.
Bring on the glitter! The red & green glitter, that is. Wear your usual nude nail, but make them Christmas themed with festive sparkly colors like red, green, and maybe even some gold! This one’s super to do at home; just focus most of the glitter at the base of your nail and slowly lift pressure off the nail as you glide it over. (Glitter is super forgiving!)
Feelin’ a little extra? We def do most of the time. Rock a set of stiletto or almond shaped nails with sweater art designs, snowflakes, candy cane stripes, and of course, some sparkle. These babies are so extra we just can’t anymore.
