Everyone’s favourite magical time of the year is upon us, and it’s time to get ready for all the festivities by decorating your house, and planing your outfits and makeup looks for all the Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners. Of course, no celebratory ensemble is complete without a matching manicure, so we have scoured the internet for some of the best Christmas themed nails for you to recreate.

Everything shimmery and sparkly

Nothing screams Christmas more than a little sparkle, and if you plan on wearing a minimal outfit, fun nails are a great way to introduce some festive spirit to your look. ‘Velvet nails’ are the latest internet phenomenon and ’tis the season to embrace the trend, you can recreate the look at home with the right products, which makes it a great option for those too busy to get their nails done.


If you resonate with the Grinch in any level, there is no better way to pay homage to the iconic character than sporting a stylish green manicure. To elevate the classic green colour, you can incorporate fun trends like chrome, or elements like embellishments and stickers to spice up the look and make it more holiday appropriate.

Elevated French Tips

If colour is not for you, you can still opt for a fun look sticking to a basic design, like the timeless french tip. To elevate them for Christmas, you can switch out the white colour for red or green or top-it-off with multi-coloured embellishments and stickers.

Holiday Aura

Aura nails have taken our Instagram and Pinterest feeds by storm, so if you want to partake in the latest nail trend screenshot these looks in festive colours, to recreate them for the holiday or your Instagram feed. The look can be created with multiple colours so you can be as extra or minimal as you want.
