Well this is by far, my favorite time for nails! Oh the glitter, the snowflakes and all the many shades of red! It’s a pretty sexy and fabulous time of year!!
Classic Christmas Nail Art:
Every year I have to up my snowflake game. I start practicing a few weeks early. Checking my favorite pages for inspiration and putting it to the test! This really pays off because then when my girls come in I am all warmed up and have new and fun ideas for them. I try to do this with every season or holiday.
A few examples of the classic Christmas nail art would be, snowflakes (of course) holly, Frosty or perhaps a Christmas tree! So much fun! If you are the nail art type, you are loving this time of year. Let your creative flag fly!!!
Here are a few faves to get the juices flowing 😉
This can be very effective. Subtle and effective. Maybe a few different “Christmas Colors”, like green, white and gold are used. I think this blend looks really pretty together.
A new trend for my clients this year is a Winter Blue. Any shade will do. and we usually end up pairing it with a silver sparkle. Rose gold glitter would also be stunning.
I love a nice dark juicy red. Ohhhhh so sultry and really makes a statement without going over the top.
And we cannot forget about white! A white set of nails this time of year is really sharp. Think about it, you don’t even have to consider what outfit goes with your nails! This look will go with everything. Short or long, white nails at Christmas really pop!
Bring On The Glitter:
Now depending on how close to Christmas you get your nails done, Glitter is a great option to carry you over into the New Year. Also, a full set of glitter nails is actually the strongest thing you can get. So if it is a while until your next appointment, ironically, glitter is the way to go.
You can waterfall it over another color, use as an accent nail or just go for it and do a full set. I mean what girl doesn’t love even a little sparkle in her life!?
Bring on the mistletoe, eggnog and midnight kisses, cause girl, your nails are going to be on point this winter!!
