Deck the halls with these festive Christmas nail design ideas. I’m sharing a great collection of nail designs for your acrylic or natural nails.

I don’t know about you, but by the end of November, I’m totally in the Christmas spirit. I’m ready to put up my Christmas tree, bake cookies, and drink peppermint mochas.

I’ve also started adding my nails to my holiday festivities. I think that it’s so fun to have my nails designed based on the season. If you’re like me and are looking for nail designs perfect for winter and Christmas, I’ve got you covered.

Snowman and Reindeer

These nails featuring a snowman and reindeer are so adorable. I love how the reindeer has red glitter for its nose. This design is perfect for anyone who’s looking for natural nail design ideas.

Polka Dots and Stripes

What I love about these stiletto nails is that the design would look great using a variety of colors. You could use red and white to give your stripes a candy cane look. Or blue and white to give the polka dots the look of falling snow.

Gift Wrap Nails

These gift wrap nails are perfect for natural and acrylic nails. The addition of the glitter really makes these nails stand out. You could also get silver nails and silver glitter if you want to switch things up.

Glitter Nail on Ring Finger

I’ve always loved the look of having all nails one solid color except for the ring finger. These colors are perfect for the winter season and even work well for your New Years’ celebration. Below, you’ll also find this same design using a different color palette.

Holiday Stars

Deck out your nails with festive stars. I love the nuder color of the nails and the burgundy and gold stars. If you like the gold ribbon ring, you can find the ring on Amazon. If you enjoy this look but would like to try different colors, it would be fun to brainstorm different color palette ideas.

Snowman Nails

If you want your nails to stand out, these snowman nails are perfect. With snowmen and glittering snow, these are the ultimate festive winter nails. These cool nails were actually painted freehand, which is super impressive.

Winter Red Blue and White Nails

These nails include the ultimate holiday colors and instantly remind me of winter when I see them. Even though this design looks great as is, I think that it would also look great if the detailed design was only on the ring finger.

Holiday Natural Nails

If you want to rock your natural nails for the holidays, you can get an amazing design without getting acrylics. These Christmas mix and match nails are so cute and fun.

Add Lot’s of Rings

One great tip for making your nails stand out is to wear rings on your fingers. I love the look of wearing rings on all of your fingers, or even multiple rings per finger.

Blue and Gold

What I love about these nails is that the colors aren’t typical Christmas colors, they come together to look so beautiful and festive. The snowflakes along with the gold accents come together so wonderfully.
