With the holidays right around the corner, you may be looking for fun ways to add a little extra cheer to the season. Whether it’s through trying a new hairstyle, getting glam or painting your nails, a holiday themed look is always a good idea—even if it’s just for you or your Zoom parties to enjoy!

From glitter nails to painted Christmas trees, these manicures are guaranteed to impress this holiday season.

A Holly Jolly Mani

This red and green set by Instagram user @sanctuaryspatradition is perfect for those looking for a classic Christmas manicure. The painted holly and touch of glitter takes this look from basic to bold.

Sparkling Swirl

@vickidignard5’s set is the glitter mani of our dreams. The mismatched look is great for any occasion but will take your holiday ensemble to another level. We’re obsessed with this one!

Sweaters & Snowflakes

Another manicure worthy of recreating is this red set by @nicolefrancisss__. The textured, sweater-like nails paired with candy cane stripes and snowflakes will impress everyone on your Zoom call.

Christmas Tree Galore

This set from @nailart.bycaroline is everything. It might take a little more precision, but the dark green tones paired with Christmas tree accents are the perfect way to show your holiday cheer.

Polka Dot Delight

@nails.bynat’s polka dot moment lets you celebrate the holidays in a subtle but fun way! Although classic Christmas colors are used, this mani is chic enough to last past the holiday season.

Soft & Snowy

Channel your inner ice queen with these snowflake nails from Instagram user @nailwarrior. The muted pink and blue tones perfectly compliment the sparkling snow that will last all winter long.

Daring & Detailed

For those looking for a more detailed set, go with this fun mani from @thenaildetails. The neutral colors and impressive line work will keep the compliments coming all season long!

Candy Cane Celebration

It may not be a candy cane forest, but this manicure still perfectly emulates the holiday season. Designed by @nailsbypaulin, the gorgeous set will have everyone admiring your nail art skills. 

A Festive Feeling

If precise details aren’t your style, you can always channel Instagrammer @nailartbysig. This mismatched moment is much easier to achieve but will still keep the holiday spirit alive.

Christmas Light Galore

Lastly, these Christmas light-inspired nails from @nailwarrior are cute, trendy and perfectly delicate. The small designs will take some serious precision, but it’s so worth it! (This one might be our fave).
