Obviously nothing can say Christmas nails better than an emblematic seasonal character such as Santa, Christmas trees, the Grinch, reindeer's, snowflakes, and recreating these characters on your nails won't be just fun but they'll also give the nails a show stopping festive appearance. You can test your skills and use acrylic or just nail polish to design your own Christmas inspired nails or you can turn towards Christmas inspired nail art stickers instead if you're looking for an easier approach to fabulous nails.

Go for seasonal colors such as white, red, green, silver and gold as they are the must use colors of the holiday season. Try to go glittery if you're searching for a more glamoros appearance but you can also use creamy shades instead, as either way the result will be just fantastic.

Glitter nail polish or glitter dust can definitely make your nails shine and sparkle under the light, making your manicure even more eye catching. Mix and match various cool glitter hues and let their shimmery effect gather plenty of compliments. You can go for a different glitter color on all nails, go for the same glitter hue created on the tip of your nail or mix two or more hues to underline your atypical holiday season mani.

Go soft using seasonal colors or make a statement by going for cool bright hues that cannot be overlooked. Don't be afraid to opt for 'heavy' looking nails as this is the perfect season to splurge and let your imagination run lose. A colorful French tip manicure paired with a cool light bulb, Christmas character or snowflakes can get you in the right holiday spirit, so have fun with color as it's only nail polish. Seal your design with a clear top coat and give your nails a super glam shine.
