Holiday nail art designs that are festive yet not cheesy.

For most people, one of the most enjoyable aspects of the holidays is dressing up in a fancy outfit. For beauty fans, the standout feature is either the holiday-themed makeup or the complementing nail art.

 However, just because you enjoy festive manicures does not mean you prefer tinsel patterns, ugly sweater-inspired manicures, or Christmas tree nails. 

 In fact, we're here to illustrate that Christmas nail art doesn't have to be tacky to be adorable.

We're in a new era of inventiveness, guided by exceptional nail technicians. Holiday manicures can be anything from elegant candy-cane swirls to Santa-hat nail-art patterns.

Winter nail art extends beyond any one event, so don't be hesitant to embrace the season's overall cosy look.
