Just like every Who down in Whoville, we like Christmas a lot. And to celebrate the season, we’ve compiled a list of Grinch nail designs to honor our favorite green misanthrope.
From the man himself to Cindy Lou Who to his adorable pup Max, these Grinch nails are a great way to show you love Christmas…but aren’t gonna be too happy about it.
So get ready for this holiday season. Drink the hot cocoa, dress up in ugly sweaters, and paint your nails with festive designs. And then kick everyone out with a resounding “ho-hum.” Christmas, the Grinchy way.
25 Grinch Nail Designs
1. Merry Grinchmas Nails
The Grinch’s eye roll is perfectly captured in this nail design. We can practically feel the exasperation radiating through the photo.
2. Pink Grinch Nails
These adorable pink nails will surely make you look cuddlier than a cactus. Unfortunately, a fresh manicure can’t fix the “charming as an eel” part. That takes personal growth.
3. Textured Grinch Nails
Create the classic ornament held in the Grinch’s hand with two gems. One tiny and one tiny tinier than tiny. According to our measurements, tinier than tiny is about half of a teenie tiny.
4. Emerald Green Grinch Nails
Green is the Grinch’s favorite color. This is surmised because he is that color. Does that mean everyone assumes we like beige a lot?
5. Clear Glitter Grinchmas Nails
The glitter base on this design creates the illusion of snow. We have to use an illusion because when we tried the real snow, it just melted off. Buzzkill.
6. Stink, Stank, Stunk Nails
This design has a cute take on the classic French manicure by replacing the classic tip with a candy cane and a hat. Honestly, say what you want about the Grinch, but he’s certainly an innovator.
7. Grinch with Snowflakes Nails
These nails are already long, but imagine them on the Grinch’s fingers. Now that would be great for ASMR.
8. Whoville Nails
It’ll be easy for Cindy Lou Who to find out where Christmas is in this design. It’s on these nails. Hellooooo?
9. Nude Grinch Nails
This fun nail design even has a template of how much one’s heart can grow. Three sizes to be exact. Any more than that and you should make sure you have health insurance.
10. Live Action Grinch Nails
The detail on this face is a work of art. It probably took almost as long as it took Jim Carrey to get into his make-up for the role – two and a half hours. And we complain about having to wake up 30 minutes before our work from home job.
11. How the Grinch Saved Christmas Nails
In the end, he did fix his own mess, saving Christmas after initially being the one to steal it. This one feels like revisionist history.
12. Grinch and Max Nails
Dog is a man’s best friend and Max is no exception. The reluctant accomplice makes an appearance in this design.
13. Christmas Light Nails
The lights on this design unfortunately don’t light on one side. One of the bulbs must’ve burned out.
14. Santa vs. Grinch Nails
The Grinch’s greatest enemy: Mr. Claus himself. His second greatest enemy? A comb.
15. The…the…the…The Grinch Nails
This design is the…the…the… the cutest. No offense to the other designs. Ah, don’t steal our new iPad!
16. Jack Skellington and the Grinch Nails
There is nothing better than our two favorite anti-heroes in one design. If Jack Skellington is the Pumpkin King, then we guess that makes the Grinch the Cave-Dwelling Mountain King.
17. Confetti Grinch Nails
This confetti design is as festive as Whoville after finding their presents gone on Christmas morning. At least this confetti won’t get stuck in every crevasse.
18. “Max!!!” Grinch Nails
We can hear Jim Carrey shouting “Max!” in that crotchety voice. Okay, maybe we’re just hearing things.
19. Grinchmas Gem Nails
Give Mr. Grinch a little flair by adding some gemstones to the design. We’re not quite sure he would like them, but he can’t hate them as much as he hates Christmas. …Right?
20. Naughty or Nice Grinch Nails
Let people know which side you’re feeling that day by pointing at them aggressively with the finger that reads your current mood. Our mood today is Max.
21. Merry Grinchmas Nails
This adorable design features a Santa hat with green tufts of hair sticking out. Let’s just hope no Grinches were harmed in the painting of those nails.
22. Ho Ho No Nails
We know Mr. Grinch is a mean one, but having garlic in our soul doesn’t really seem all that bad.
23. Candy Stripe Grinch Nails
This candy stripe nail design looks just like a peppermint from your grandma’s purse. Minus all the lint.
24. Mister Grinch Nails
Look, we know he’s supposed to be a mean one. But how can something mean be so cute? We guess that explains why you shouldn’t hug raccoons.
25. Grinch, Cindy Lou Who, and Max Nails
The whole gang’s here on the Christmas-y red base. Both Cindy and Max look very sad, but it’s easy to paint those frowns upside down. Literally. Here’s a nail polish bottle.
