1. Snow Nails

Christmas is all about the snow…which sadly never makes it to the UK in time for Christmas! Instead of waiting for a holiday miracle, bring the snow to your nails with these beautifully inspiring nail designs.


2. Candy Cane Nails

All those sweet toothers out there will love this one and it’s easy to DIY it too! Get sugar cane nails by using stripping tape specifically for nails. This allows you to get a straight line without worrying about your handshaking and messing it all up! Every time I don’t want my hands to shake they know exactly what to do- shake!


3. Ugly Jumper Nails

I’m not sure how many of us want to sport this nail look, but I would definitely do it as a joke for a Nan who insists on knitting these jumpers year in and year out! Think she’d get the message? I’m not convinced!


4. Green Festive Nails

Match your Christmas tree with these gorgeous green nails. Customise them to suit your taste with extra sparkles or glitter. There’s something about the green during Christmas time, just looking at these nails, I can almost smell a Christmas tree! They bring cosy nostalgic feeling to the surface. Who knew nails could do that?!


5. Snowflake Nails

Similar to the snow nails, the snowflake nails have a transparent base colour with more snow and sparkles! These are for those who want Christmas nails without standing out too much!

Become a princess this Christmas! Christmas is the perfect time of the year to dream big, and these fairytale nails, wintery nails will help you achieve that!

Does pink ever go out of season? I think not! Use Christmasy designs and patterns and turn them pink. Even without the classic Christmas colouring, you can instantly tell which season these nails belong to!


9. Christmas Gonk Nails

You’re either a lover or hater when it comes to Gonks. Kinda like Marmite! Honestly, I find them a little creepy. It’s the hat covering the eyes, every time I see one I literally want to pull up the hat! So clearly these nails are not for me, but if you are one of those obsessed with Gonks, you’ll love these nails!


10. Marbled Nails

What I love most about these marbled nails is how much fun they are to recreate! This could be a fun activity to do at home with your kids- all you need is a few different colour nail polishes with some glitter and swirl around while applying! Since there are no big parties this year, this is a great activity to do instead! It will bring laughter and fun at a time when we all desperately need it!


11. Tartan Nails

Another Christmas staple is tartan! It symbolises winter and cosiness! Step up your nail game with these fabulous green, red and white nails. Get classy nails that are at the same time fitting for the holiday season!
