10 Fun Holiday Manicures

Holiday manicures can be super fun to play around with during the month of December. Whether you choose a Christmas manicure or a simple snowflake feature nail, you’re bound to get tons of compliments. Here are 10 great ideas for the perfect holiday manicure.


  1. Candy Cane Nails

Candy cane nails are an easy cute way to celebrate the holidays. Start by painting your nails all white, and then using small pieces of tape, stick them on horizontally in random spots and paint over the entire nail in red. Wait a few minutes for them to dry and then peel off the tape.




  1. Snowman Nails

Snowman nails can be quite simple as well. After painting your entire nail white, use a toothpick to add your snowman face.


  1. Reindeer Nails

If you’re a bit more talented and looking for a challenge, you can always attempt reindeer nails. After painting your nails any color you choose, you’ll need a red and brown nail polish with some toothpicks to help you draw on your reindeer.




  1. Snowflake Nails

Adding a simple snowflake as a feature nail can sometimes be the easiest and simplest way to create holiday nails.




  1. Christmas Tree Nails

Christmas tree nails can be a bit more difficult. It does take more time and effort, but definitely worth it in the end! After painting your nails all white or red, use a green nail polish and some tape to create your Christmas tree.



  1. Present Nails

Add cute red or green bow as a feature nail or on all your nails on top of your regular polish color to create a great holiday nail!






  1. Christmas Ornament Nails

Christmas ornaments on your nails is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit!



  1. Gold feature nail

If you don’t celebrate Christmas, and you’re looking for an easy way to change up your usual red nails, add a gold feature nail for a little bit of sparkle and glam.





  1. Christmas Print

Christmas print nails are a combination of all the nails above. They can take more time, but the end result is well worth it!






  1. Minion Nails

My personal favorite has to be the Christmas minion nail. Although it is a lot harder than all the other designs and will take more time, I can guarantee you’ll feel accomplished once they’re done.
