21 Christmas Nail Designs That Say Of Course I’m Dressing My Car Up As Rudolph

Fashion + Beauty

If you’ve been feeling more “bah humbug” than “ho ho ho” for the holidays, a Christmas manicure is a great way to get yourself in the mood to celebrate. If it doesn’t work, at least your nails look good.

1. Plaid Christmas Nails

Ask your manicurist for an accent nail (or two) that features this iconic Burberry print. It's a great way to subliminally let everyone in your life know what you want for Christmas. An iTunes gift card!

2. Reindeer Nails

Rudolph’s red nose makes the perfect centerpiece. If that’s too grim, think of it this way: at least it’s not the whole herd?

3. Krampus Nails

Make sure the flashlight under your face highlights this festive monster when you tell your nieces and nephews the story of Krampus and possibly ruin their holiday.

4. Candy Cane Stripes

Stripes, glitter, and an accent nail? The only thing this Christmas nail manicure is missing is scratch and sniff. Roasted ham sounds nice!

5. Holly Garland Nails

Skip the trip to wherever it is that you buy wreaths and ask your manicurist to line your classic French manicure with some wintry plant life. Perhaps in the “beyond” section of Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
