You’ll Absolutely Love These 12 Fun Christmas Nails Ideas

Christmas Nails Ideas

Did you get your nails done for the holidays yet? If you’re looking for Christmas nails ideas, I’ve got good ones for you. I’m sharing 12 that I think are so fun for the holidays.

Simple Nail Art Designs

Up until a couple of years ago, I had never tried nail art. I found this awesome nail artist in Boston. When I saw her designs, I knew I had to try nail art.

I don’t do nail art that often for a couple of reasons. First, I often get bored with the design after a few days. I absolutely love the red and the simple white design I chose, but even that starts to feel mundane after a week. Second, nail art is much more expensive than regular manicures. However, if you do just one or two nails, it’s much less expensive.

I chose this super simple design because I love nail art, but I get tired of it so quickly. The reason I chose this design is I wanted something that said holiday but also felt pretty neutral. The red color is one of my favorites, Plus, the design is simple and feels more wintery than just Christmas.

A lot of the Christmas nails ideas I chose are super neutral on purpose. I personally prefer them over loud nail designs. In the week since I’ve had my manicure, I’ve gotten so many compliments. I think the red color is really striking, with just a little shimmer in it. My nail artist hand-painted the little white details. If you’re unsure of trying nail art, I’d suggest starting simple, like I did.

I hope you like these 12 fun Christmas nails ideas. Personally, I don’t do a ton of nail art. I do get tired of it. Since I usually get gel on my nails, they last 2-3 weeks. After the first week, I’m usually tired of the color and the pattern. That’s why I do prefer more subtle nail art ideas. Plus, I think the ones I chose above are all super cute but still subtle enough that I wouldn’t get tired of them. Doing nail art is just one simple and fun way to express your personal style and also have a little fun. Hopefully, these give you some fun inspiration for holiday nails or winter nails.
