The holidays are coming up and don’t you want to be ready for the parties? As you make your outfits for the holidays don’t forget to get your nails done! Nails are one of the best ways to complete your looks, especially for the holidays.
1. Different Designs Nail Art
This nail art design is super fun and any nail artist can do it for you. Get matching colors and prepare a simple design for each of the nails. You could also do this nail art at home as long as you take your time and keep the designs on each nail fairly simple.
2. Fine Shimmer Dust Nail Art
This is one of my personal favorite nail art’s to get done because it always looks so simple but elegant. There is fine shimmer dust that you just rub onto your nails that will give your nails this glittery mirror effect. It’s so beautiful for the holidays to emulate sparkly snow or the silvers of Christmas.
3. Dark and Shimmer Nail Art
You can never go wrong going a little vampy for the holidays. A nice deep red would look stunning on your nails and still keep in theme with the festive times. Add an accent to the nails by painting on shimmery nail polish on a single nail.
4. Marble Nail Art
A classic nail art design is marble nail art. This nail art is really easy to do at home because it just requires some nail polish and water. Paint all your nails a white color than in a cup of water pours in a drop at a time the desired colors for your marble. Once done use a toothpick to ripple the design into a marble. You can apply tape around your finger for easy cleanup. When the tape is on, dip your finger into the marble nail art then take it out and now you have the perfect marble nail art.
5. Neon Nail Art
This look is a little out there for the holidays but with neon green, you just can’t go wrong. The neon look is coming back in fashion and if the right colors are chosen can be perfect for your holiday looks. Neon nails for the holidays are such a statement, you’re going to look so unique and different compared to others and it’s such a bright and fun way to add color to your holiday season and outfit.
6. Basic Red Nail Art
A classic and a color that just is perfect for the holiday season. Some basic red nails go great with any of your holiday outfits because red is just the color of the holidays. You can keep it simple with some red nails and you could even add accents like silver gems or a glitter topcoat.
7. Browns and Nudes Nail Art
This may not seem like holiday nails but nudes are very in right now for the holiday season. Some brown and nude nails will go great with a beautiful monochrome beige outfit. Turn brown into a fun color to wear for the holidays because the earth tones are always overlooked during such a cool seasonal time. These nails are elegant and will pair well with any outfit you decide to wear for the holidays.
8. Holiday Classic Nail Art
These nails are iconic for the holiday season and will fit any look you decide to wear. Just getting the basic red and green nail art combo with some silver or green shimmery polish. You could even get some cute nail stickers like little snowflakes to complete the holiday look.
9. Gold Foil Nail Art
Gold nails are a huge statement when it comes to nail art. Getting the gold foil nails are such a flex because they look and make you feel like you own everything. The foil nails are gorgeous for a glamorous holiday party outfit.
10. White Basic Nail Art
This nail art is meant to emulate freshly fallen snow. Just getting some plain white nails are perfect to convey the holiday spirit. You could add some holiday decals like silver accents or holiday stickers but the white nails are still a classic that works perfectly for the holidays.
11. Polka Dot Nail Art
These nails are perfect for the holidays because you can wear them leading into new years. They match well with the theme of the holidays and go great for new years because polka dots are a sign of good luck when entering the new year.
12. Grey and White Nail Art
A classic look for the holidays is grey and white. You just can’t go wrong with grey and white nails for the holidays. Use some shimmery silver nail polish as a topcoat on the grey nails to add a little shine to them.
13. Green Leaf Nail Art
This nail art is festive and a really simple way to get the holiday nail art looks. Paint all your nails green but leave one of the nails with a nude polish. Using the same green and a toothpick carefully paint on a little leaf design onto the nude nail. It’s really simple but adds to the theme of a Christmas tree for the holidays.
14. Nude Spotted Nail Art
The nude spotted nail art is similar to the polka dot nails but slightly different in that you only put the polka dots on one or two nails rather than all the nails. You can put gold or silver spots over the nude nails for a great shimmer accent.
15. Pastel Blue Nail Art
Pastel blue nails fit in with the theme of the holidays because they are really easy to do at home. I feel like blue is a forgotten color for the holidays but it’s such a pretty color to wear during the holidays because it’s a little more unique and different compared to all the reds and greens you’ll be seeing.
