Here are some Christmas nail art designs, from the easiest to the most advanced.

Easy Nail Art Designs

Christmas Presents

The nail art design is achieved by using two shades of nail polish preferably red and gold. Once your basecoat is dry, apply red nail polish and leave it to dry. Apply a clear top coat to seal the red nail polish and leave it to dry. Use a clean toothpick and the gold nail polish to make vertical and horizontal lines such that they meet near the corner of the nail. Finish with a clear top coat once the gold polish has dried.

Moderate Nail Art design

Christmas French

For this design, you’ll need a rubber band, red, white and green nail polish preferably with glitters. You can use green nail polish by Orly. Take the rubber band and tie it in the middle. Using your thumb, loop one end to tighten the band. Align the other end of the band over the top of your nail, just below the edge to create a French tip shape. Paint the tip of the nail red and leave it to dry.

To create small dots, dip a small brush into the white nail polish and tap it across the nail just below the red tips. Once it has dried, apply the green nail polish below both designs. Leave to dry and finish off with a top coat.

Hard Design

Winter Icicles

You will need light blue nail polish, base coat, loose silver glitter, nail gel and a rubber band to achieve this design. Apply base coat and leave it to dry then apply light blue nail polish. Once it has dried, seal it with a clear top coat. Mix the loose glitter with nail gel, fasten the rubber band on the finger to create a French tip nail and apply the mixture. Use a soft brush to create a thin line of glitters running from the tip to the middle of the nail. Leave it to dry and apply a clear top coat.
