Festive Nail Art Ideas For Christmas
Picking the right nail for the Christmas season is definitely never an easy thing to do, especially since you actually have so many beautiful options to choose from. You get to decide whether to go with gel Christmas nails or something from the Christmas acrylic nails section.
However, if you’re really having difficulty with making a choice, then perhaps one of the following will be able to help you out:
Holly and Candy Cane
This might not be one of the simple Christmas acrylic nails, but the beauty that you get when you strap them on is definitely worth all the complexity and waiting that is involved in pulling it off. If you will like to keep your festive nails for even longer, then you can throw in a base coat before you put the designs on. This way, the polis will actually be able to stick to something, and it also seals in your finished work when you apply a top coat, thereby giving you nails- that won’t chip- for even longer.
Plus, it can help you to avoid that annoying staining effect that you get when you throw in bright colors like green or red.
Apart from being able to develop that candy cane design that was mentioned earlier, nail foils are actually one of the most innovative ad inspiring ways to bring a touch of the new and unexpectedly delightful to your manicure. Simple red nails (yes, red is the color of Christmas, what did you expect?) can easily be glammed with the addition of a few silver foils, and you can easily jazz things up with the bow embellishments.
Christmas Tree Manicure Design
This remains one of the most unique Christmas nail designs, although a lot of people won’t be rocking it. If you are looking for a simple, classic and elegant design to get your nails going this season, then these white and green Christmas tree nails are definitely one of the most perfect ways to get started. With a classic white backdrop and tape, you can create the Christmas tree triangle. Also, one of the best parts about this design is that you really don’t need more than these two colors to get it done. You can mix them however you want to create a beautiful look.
Candy Cane Nails
As far as short Christmas acrylic nails go, there are definitely one of the very cutest. One of the most symbolic representations of the Christmas period comes in the form of the white and red stripes that make up the design of the conventional candy cane. However, a lot of people tend to forget- or just ignore- how this classic, simple nail design can help accentuate the ensemble when the Christmas season rolls by.
You can get some nail foil strips that can be placed over a red or white backdrop, then use the alternate color to paint over the remaining part of the nail. When you take the fill strips off, you’ll find that the contrasting color will pop right through, thereby providing you with a proper opportunity to make a recreation of the look.
By the way, keep in mind that you can easily add the red nails with ease. In the event that you get a little stuck on ideas, feel free to go with a red base. It works all the time.
Christmas Coffin Acrylic Nails
Coffin acrylic nails have always been a favorite among a lot of people, and considering the fact that they work so well with basically any occasion or ensemble, there really is no reason why you won’t be able to style them effectively for the Christmas period as well. The Christmas acrylic coffin shape will definitely look pretty, and you can always find easy ways to style them and have them pop out beautifully.
There really isn’t anything that says Christmas like Santa Claus, and one of the best things about this nail design is the fact that it remains one of the easiest and most appropriate ways to get your nails ready for the holiday season. You get a red nail with a white stipe going vertically along the center and along the edge of the nail horizontally. This design provides the perfect backdrop to show off the so much of dear old Saint Nick, and you can easily add the belt from there.
For the rest of the nails, you can make use of a nude bottom coat to keep things simple and short, and you can also put your festive mood on display by adding a little bit of gold glitter as well.
The mistletoe is an extra that can easily be added, but you never know when it will come in handy… especially if there are some cute guys over there ready to give a nice smooch.
