We get lots of time off during the holiday season. It’s a great time to relax with a hot chocolate and paint your Christmas nails. If you’re going for festive motifs this season these festive or winter styled patterns.
Christmas Nails – Festive Gallery Page One
Snowflakes, Snowmen and Santa abound!
The best part about this season is it has three main associated colors: red, white, and green. So you can paint your nails in a whole bunch of these patterns, and only need to buy a couple of colors. Whether you like to keep it simple or go all-out, there’s a pattern for you. Maybe build up your skills, starting simple with a giant snowman head or star, and finish strong with an exquisitely detailed reindeer. Think of these ideas as our Christmas present to you! There are another couple of batches of Christmas nails later in this section.
Rudolph and Fir Trees.
White and red are Christmas colors, these cute, simple designs remind us of the Season of Giving with snow, pine trees, reindeer, and snowflakes. They aren’t too busy: the patterns are huge and there are only two on each hand. They’re cute and charming: the perfect present for your fingertips.
Tis’ the Season.
It’s the season for ugly Christmas sweaters and tacky ornaments, but that doesn’t mean your nails have to be tacky and gross as well. These patterns will class up the season. The beautiful metallic blue reminds us of “Silent Night” while the snowflakes and stars are easy to DIY. Christmas fun!
Fir Tree of Gems.
Hues of red and green are your base, with a simple, easy Christmas tree on one finger, complete with sequins. On another is a cute, easily painted snowflake. Use a tiny brush to make flakes, if you’re hardcore about DIY, use a bobby pin on lines and dots.
Classy and Festive.
Christmas, a season of bright lights and shiny décor, makes it fun to make your nails match. One is pure white with metallic snowflakes glued on. The others are all sparkly: a metallic blue with snowflake cutouts and some are just beautiful and silver. Lovely and seasonal.
What kind of Christmas nails would these be without Santa? There can only be one Santa Claus, so you only need one on your middle finger. He has to take center stage. Add to simple French tips for easy-mode. Santa himself is easy to paint with a small brush, so have fun making your own Christmas nails!
Glittery Festive Manicure.
Glitter, glitter, everywhere! Or, on your tips. That works great, too. First, put your tips on. Then, add a cute snowflake: one per nail, and fairly large. Once the paint is dry, add some glue and either sprinkle some glitter and sequins on or dip your fingers into the glitter. Disperse it evenly and you’ve got cute seasonal nails.
Santa in the Snow.
Everyone thinks of snow and Santa on Christmas nails, but don’t overlook Santa’s reindeer. All the paint is red except the ring finger, that one’s reserved for a cute, simple deer. Use a stencil, add a border and a big red nose.
A Bit More Subtle.
Not everyone wants something kid-ish like Santa and snowmen. Instead, seasonal colors like the white of snow and the blue of the snowy sky go on French tips. Add simple stars to remind us of the Christmas season, and you have cute without overly festive.
If you like simple DIY nails, these are perfect for you. You don’t need too many patterns, just one or two cute pictures. One is a simple stripe pattern in Christmas colors of red and white. The other is all-out. It’s Santa, made with simple lines and painting. These are adorable and fit the season perfectly.
Black and White Christmas Nails.
Red and white and green can be used way too often during Christmas. Class it up with black and white instead. Still use festive patterns: deer, hearts, and snowflakes, for extra flavor, one simple jewel in the middle of one finger, cute not clichéd.
Dark blue isn’t a Christmasy color, but it is a wintry hue. And the sparkles remind us of snowflakes. And then, just to make sure everyone knows you’re painting your nails for the season, add a snowman. It’s easy and cute! So, if you like the winter season but don’t like to over do the Christmassy-ness of it, these are great nails for you!
Teddies and Reindeer.
Keep it simple for the Christmas season. Sparkly French tips equal cute and feminine. One for each hand, add a teddy bear and a reindeer, both wearing Santa hats. The soft colors match your tips, and the cuteness matches the season.
What reminds us of Christmas? Red and white, Santa hats, snowflakes, and sparkles! So, add all of those to your nails for the Christmas season? French tips make it easy to add each one, and they’re simple enough to do yourself. If you want, glue a snowflake on instead of painting it.
Red and green to match the holiday season, wth a simple pattern: stars and wiggly stripes. This kind of thing you see on gift wrapping or a seasonal sweater. They’re a more mature look than Santa’s and reindeer’s, for when you want to feel like a grown-up while opening gifts.
One for Halloween.
Get spooky-scary, black and red always come to mind when you think Halloween nails, and of course, when you think of red, you think of blood. Make the black a little grayish to remind us of the sky during fall. For a cuter touch, add a simple Jack-O-Lantern.
