A black and gold French manicure is a super chic holiday nail look

Holiday nail art inspirations you'll want to wear all year long

The holiday season is the best time to go all out with your look- and that includes your nails! In anticipation of Christmas and New Year's day, we've gathered the best nail art inspiration we have to create a gallery of different designs you've gotta try!

The guide

Naturally, glitter polish features heavily and, thanks to the brand new Million Carat Collection by L'Oréal Paris, also happens to be very easy to work into any Christmas manicure. With sparkly polishes you can add extra detail, light and even texture to your festive nail art. Example: add white glitter over a blue nail polish to create a snowy winter's night right on your fingertips!

White winter wonderland nails are also a great option. Usually seen as a summer polish, a snowy white is ideal for a day in December, too!

Alternatively, keep things classic with a classic red shade or on-trend oxblood. Any time of year is perfect for wearing such a timeless nail color and Christmas might just be the best time of all!

For anyone who doesn't necessarily want to be overly festive, jewel tones are perfect. Deep, rich colours like ruby, indigo and sapphire all work perfectly with any winter ensemble.

Another idea is to try out nail designs like the French manicure or half-moon for a nail look that is attention-grabbing but not cheesy.


Whatever the time of year, it's important to start your manicure with a base coat, which will provide a smooth foundation for your chosen nail art and also help to protect your nails. Then, when you're done, finish with a top coat to give your nails a smooth, extra-glossy finish and protect them from chips and scratches!
