Decorating them for different festivals is becoming a hot fashion trend and Christmas inspires us to make every little thing cheery and festive. Christmas-themed nail designs usually include: Santa Claus prints, snowman images, snowflake art, candy motifs and chilly wintery scenes. Savour the atmosphere and spice up your nails for a festive look, choosing amongst our top tips below!

Santa Claus

For a Christmas party, make Santa Claus the face of your nails. Santa Claus nail art is the most popular art design for Christmas. For this, apply colour as the base coat. Then make a circle in the centre of your nail representing Santa’s face with skin colour. Use white acrylic colour for drawing a beard, red colour to paint a hat and black to paint some eyes and outline of the face. Use colour combinations for a traditional look!

Snowman

Snowman nail art design is also a great idea for decorating nails for a Christmas party. Snowman nail art only requires two colours: red and white. Use a white polish to make three circles, one on top of the other in different sizes. These circles will represent the body and use a black nail colour to give details like eyes and buttons.
