Christmas Nail Art Designs: This Year’s Hottest Trends

Snowflakes, Christmas trees, and ‘ugly’ Christmas sweater prints are just a few of the hottest Christmas Nail Art Designs popping up on fingertips this year.

As you know, Christmas is on its way! Between buying a cute and festive dress for your company Christmas party and getting all your shopping done, this time of year can be hectic. You’ve also got to find some time to visit with family and friends, bake (or buy!) some Christmas cookies, and spend a few minutes applying Christmas nail art designs that show off your Christmas cheer and merry mood. Before you get started, take a peak at some of these trendy holiday nails to get your inspiration flowing.


  1. The Classic Candy Cane Stripes

This look is as beautiful as it is timeless, and it can be done in a variety of different ways. Red, green, white, silver, and glitter are the most common holiday favourite colour choices, but don’t let that limit your ideas. If you can dream it up, you can paint it on your nails. Our favourite tool for mastering these iconic stripes is the Pretty in Pink Brush


  1. A Festive String of Lights

This look is just the right mix of Christmas cheer and creativity. Whether you use a nail stamping plate (we love this one: Santa’s Sleigh Christmas Plate) or create your own design by hand, this look is completely versatile. Pair white and glitter nail polish together to mimic twinkling white lights, or go traditional and chose festive reds and greens. Either way, these Christmas nail art designs will draw a ton of attention.


  1. A Stunning Snowy Scene

With this nail art design, you can capture the elegance of a beautiful winter wonderland scene. We love the mix of different blue-toned polish with crisp white stamped snowflakes. To add a touch of flair, use a nail stamping plate to add reindeer or a miniature Santa’s sleigh to the scene. This nail design is Christmas perfection. 


  1. The Not-so-Ugly Christmas Sweater Print

If you’re attending an ugly Christmas sweater party this holiday season, you need to try this nail art design yourself. Just grab a stamping plate (We highly recommend this one: Christmas Sweater) and your favourite festive nail polish colours and put your stamper to work. By the time you’re done, this design will be far from ugly.


  1. The Lumberjack Chic Look

This look is as trendy as it is cozy, and is all the rage in not just clothing but Christmas nail art designs this year. Because this design reminds us of sitting next to a fire wrapped up in a comfy, plaid blanket while sipping our favourite holiday beverage, it screams winter holidays. Whether you create this design by hand or with a stamping plate, it’s the perfect accessory for a casual Christmas get-together.
