This is the season to be jolly! And creative, definitely! We are in love with these nail looks that are great for Christmas.

This is a simple one to pull off. Apply generous coats of sparkling red nail polish, and then paste cute decals on top of it. Seal with clear top coat.

Spot Rudolph!

This requires a bit of artistic talent but it’s so, so adorable! Coat your nails with white nail lacquer, then, using a small brush, draw the face and ears of the reindeer. For the details, use a toothpick for precision. Remember to let only one of your reindeer sport a red nose — he is Rudolph, of course!

We’re not all great with drawing free hand. Consider printing out cute designs, cut them out and ta-dah… you’ve got yourself a tracing mould! Remember to apply onto your nails only after your base colour has dried.

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree

We’re absolutely in love with this one, thanks to the great texture. Use tapes to cover the areas where you don’t want to paint over. The empty spaces should form a triangle. Paint over the triangles. Before your polish dries, apply green flocking powder over them and pat it down. When it dries, use a brush to go over the powder to remove the excess. Finally, apply embellishment with nail glue.

This is a relatively simply one. Apply your favourite shade of red all over your nails, then, when it dries, use tape to paste diagonally across your nails. The parts that aren’t covered are meant for you to apply white nail lacquer over.
