The holidays are almost here! I can’t believe how quickly the season is flying by.
This Christmas season is a time to go all out, whether that means wearing that new sheet shirt you’ve been eyeing from Princess Polly, throwing on your cutest heels, or doing an extra special Christmas nail design.
While Christmas nails (and holiday nails in general) seem pretty straightforward, there are actually a ton of designs and variations. I find that Christmas/holiday nail trends change so much each year. When I come to update this post, I’m always shocked at how different this year’s trends are.
There are a lot of different nail trends that are popular right now and most of these show up in holiday colors as well. You really can’t go wrong with Christmas nails, but if you’re like me and want to try something a bit new and trendy, then you should get some gorgeous ideas from this post.
Here are my favorite Christmas nail trends plus inspiration photos of each trend below!
Christmas/Holiday Nail Trends
This year, I’m seeing a lot of these specific trends.
Plaid Nail Designs: Plaid nails are huge right now, and not only for Christmas. However, if you’re doing Christmas acrylic nails, then you may want to consider at least a plaid accent nail. You can do plaid nails in just about any color.
Snowflake Nails: During the winter of 22-23, snowflake nails will be huge. I really love the more subtle snowflake accents (think a soft snowflake on nude-white ombre nails). You can’t go wrong with adding a snowflake if you want your nails to feel wintery.
