49 Festive Christmas Nail Art Ideas 2020 – Easy Holiday Nail Designs
Everyone has a different way of celebrating the holidays. Some go full-throttle, wearing a different “ugly” Christmas sweater for every day of December, decking their halls (and the entire exterior of their homes) with more lights than Paris, and practicing for a perfect cork-pop on New Year’s Eve. Others prefer a more subtle approach, hardly dabbling in the traditional red-and-green shades of the season, preferring hints of sparkle over in-your-face festiveness. The same goes for Christmas manicures.
If you’re picturing your nails covered in three-dimensional merry motifs — perhaps a cotton-bearded Santa and all of his reindeer, complete with pointy antlers and working light-up nose for Rudolph — don’t hold back. Prefer a simple coat of silver that will take you through to 2021? Your polish options are endless.
There’s really no wrong way to get your nails ready for the holidays, but if you’re having a hard time deciding on what manicure to get in these jovial last couple weeks of the year, we’ve rounded up some of our favorites.
