The Christmas lights are glittering in the streets, the tree is finally up and the presents are nestled expectantly underneath: it's officially Christmas time! And on that note, we need to get our festive manicures sorted with a little help from that endless inspiration source, Instagram, and its usual supply of daring and audacious beauty looks and nail art designs from all of those creative professionals out there! Let's take a look...
Channel your traditional Scottish side this Christmas with these gorgeously warm and festive tartan nails! Create your own tartan by mixing up the colors or patterns, or else opt for this red, gold and black design for a timeless look!
Looking for more of an ice queen manicure this Christmas? Try mixing up various shades of duck egg blue, silver and grey to create your own glittering and eye-catching nail art, and you could even try creating some swirling, frosted shapes over the top in the form of snowflakes and reindeer!
Simple yet sparkling!
For those of you looking for a quicker fix with a little less precision involved, choose a warm wintery shade of varnish then make it dazzle with a sparkling top coat! This will both keep your nail art fixed in place for longer while giving your nails a touch of frosted glitter: so simple!
And, of course, there are so many gorgeous and cute designs out there to bring out the child in you this Christmas! You can either give this sweet reindeer look a go with some help from some washi tape (a less sticky tape that you can into the shapes you want to paint onto your nails), or try out another design: Santa Claus, Christmas pudding, snowflakes - it's all at your fingertips!
