Discover 12 Christmas nail designs to try this year
Christmas is around the corner, and everyone’s getting ready for the festive season. A Christmas manicure can get you in the spirit and make you feel festive. The nail trends for 2021 have all been pretty minimal yet colourful, too, and although Christmas manicures are typically red, green, and as glittery as possible, a few designs mix the two.
In this post, there are 12 Christmas nails designs for 2021 that are typical Christmas manicures with a twist of 2021 trends. Everything from classic red designs to minimal tip designs; something for everyone this festive season.
1. Mrs. Claus
This is such a delicate design, but just perfect for the festive season. Red is the ultimate Christmas colour, and the little design on the ring finger that looks like a Christmas has is super fun and a great way to get into the spirit. This is perfect if you don’t want too much going on and would rather have a simple design, as it’s still very classy and subtle.
2. Abstract Christmas
Abstract nail designs have been very popular this year, and this is a unique way to incorporate them into your Christmas nails. Even though this design looks quite simple, the designs are so intricate and detailed that the simplicity creates its own statement look.
3. Gingerbread & Candy Canes
If you don’t like the traditional Christmas colours for a nail design, then this one is for you. A pink manicure is a classic design, but the added feature of the gingerbread and candy cane nail art keeps the design on theme. This is a fun and creative design that will look super cute for the Christmas season.
4. Tinsel Tips
Again, this is a simple, understated design, but it is still perfect for this time of year. The nude base is a classic, chic look, and then the gold glitter tips make the design much more festive. This is the ultimate Christmas party manicure, so if you are looking for a nail design for that, then this is it. I also like this design because if you don’t want to get your nails done before New Year, then this design will look great for both occasions.
5. Golden Tree
This nail design is elegant and sophisticated, the muted green and gold aren’t too loud, and then the short, simple square shape is very clean. The small tree design is cute and subtle great if you aren’t a huge fan of nail art, and the white nail adds a pop and makes the design stand out a lot more.
6. Night Before Christmas
Having a black nail design for the holidays can seem quite dark, and that it doesn’t really fit the theme; however, this is a great way of adding it to your design. The mix between black and champagne glitter is a great balance and doesn’t make it look too dull. The white snowflake design also brightens up the black and makes it more festive.
7. Christmas Candy
This design is super fun and creative. The green is a lovely pastel shade mixed with a classic red and white stripe design. The style of this manicure is unique and something many have not seen before. This nail design is perfect for someone that wants a creative, exciting manicure to get them in the Christmas spirit.
8. Iced Cookies
This is such a cosy, warm feeling manicure. The different shades of nude have really been on trend this year, and this is a great way of incorporating it into your Christmas nails. The different designs on each nail are creative and make the design much more special. The designs chosen are also very Christmassy and perfect for the winter season.
9. Christmas Pudding
What’s Christmas without a Christmas pudding, even if it is just your nail design. Although this nail design is completely nail art, it’s still simple and not overboard. The deep brown is rich, and the shimmer in it makes it stand out more. The white tip detail with the small touches of green and red are a great feature.
10. Santa Baby
A red manicure is classic every year for Christmas, and it is still a great design to have. There are so many ways you can do this design to suit you and what you like, but this design is perfect for Christmas. The different designs on each nail add excitement and something different to it, and the white again the red brightens up the whole manicure.
11. Golden Star
This design is ideal for someone that doesn’t like a coloured manicure but still want it to be festive. The nude base is classy and clean, and then the gold nail art is a very sophisticated way of having a Christmas design. It’s very simple and subtle, but the stars, candy cane and gingerbread designs are what makes it perfect for Christmas.
12. Tis the Season
Green is such a festive colour, but not many people think of green for nail designs. This deep green tone is a very elegant colour, and the pop of white and the tiny features of glitter enhances the design. The snowflake feature is great for Christmas, and what’s great about this design is that you can have this design before and after Christmas as it still has a winter theme.
