ultimate christmas manicure ideas to try cover

There’s just one week left before Christmas, and it’s high time to make a proper manicure for the coolest parties of the year. You can go super whimsy creating unique nail arts or keep the manicure more reserved and calm, so that it could be suitable after the holidays, too. Let’s have a look at the ultimate ideas to try!

Whimsy Nail Arts

Many girls choose bold and outstanding nail arts for Christmas, why not go bold and eye-catchy for the holidays? You can try deer, antlers, plaid, buffalo, snowmen, gifts, ornaments, Christmas trees and snowflakes and many other ideas that are symbolic for Christmas and winter. As for colors, try traditional ones: emerald, dark green, red, burgundy, gold and white or go for the shades that you like – purple, blue, silver, copper and many other that you like. If you want really a whimsy look, why not make every nail different, for example: a gift, a snowflake, an ornament, a tree and a candy cane? Keep the nails in the same style using the same colors and glitter. Another idea is to make one or two accent nails – they are usually glitter ones but you can try an eye-catchy rhinestone wreath, antlers or something else. Be bold!

Bold Nails With Accents

Try bold nails: red, burgundy, emerald, dark green, blue and other shades and add festive accents to them. Make these accents with glitter or rhinestones that can be made of the same color or of contrasting shades. Such an idea is less whimsy but still bold and very festive, and it suitable for those who don’t want any crazy candy canes on their nails.
