38 Chic Nail Art Ideas for Your Festive Season Celebrations
Holiday season is upon us finally! The Christmas dinners and festive parties are all approaching and along side your red dresses, ugly Christmas sweaters and sparkly eyeshadow, are your nails. So what festive nail designs are looking for this year?
I personally have a love/hate relationship with nail art, I appreciate it but find it too complicated and sometimes a bit too much for formal events. So how about for this festive season we take a look at chic and simple Christmas nails designs that will give your hands the festive look you want without struggling too much.
These easy festive holiday nail art ideas are simple because they depend more on color, glitter and adding a twinkly touch here and there.
So here are 5 tips on how you can create easy minimal Christmas nails:
1. A Simple Star
Sometimes just a simple star would do. This is actually something you can easily do at home with a start stamp, a start sticker or a small star cut out. The colors, glitter is placement is up to you.
2. Christmas Nail Stickers
The easiest thing you can do for yourself is buy stickers. You can shop these ready made nail shaped stickers that you can fit on your nails and just file away the excess. Or, you can buy small individual Christmas stickers and play around with those to. Silver and gold are a really good option, because they can go with any nail polish you choose underneath.
3. Barely there but still festive...
For all the minimalists out there, the ideas above are a really chic choice, that needs minimal effort and skill. You can try drawing a strip on gold down your nails or stick on gold sequins. You can actually clip off a section from an old necklace or bracelet and stick it on your nail, like the first picture here. It's modern and really festive.
Nothing says festive like silver and gold and I personally think, this year it's all about the gold. Play with different tones of gold and shimmer. You can also just buy gold washi tape, cut it and apply it to the tips like the design on the right.
5. Green and Red Glitter Gradient Nails
Still need some red and green in there? Can't blame you. But it can still be simple and easy. You just need to play around with a makeup sponge to stamp glitter nail polish to the tips. Or you can alternate and create a green and red look together.
