Frost Yourself

These show-stopping crystal nails are perfect for all your holidays office parties, family parties, friend hangouts, and everything in between.

Deck The Halls

Sometimes less is more, as seen here with flat neutral nails and accents of holiday lights. Tip: a dotting tool or a toothpick will work great here.

The First Snow

Match your nails to your favorite holiday sweater. For added fun, throw in a half-moon design to elevate the look.

Partial Plaid

A fun take on the traditional plaid manicure but with waves gliding along the edges of the nail. To execute: Use a sheer and opaque red and black polish to weave on top of a neutral nail. If you don’t have a steady hand, nail stickers work as well.

Trim The Tree

Ornament-inspired nails are always the move for the holidays.

Dot Party

A modern take on a classic red or green mani, this holiday manicure uses all the beloved seasonal colors for an easy and straightforward mani.

Let It Snow

Whether you're attending a fancy holiday party or enjoying a cozy night in, snowflakes are a stunning manicure to try this holiday season.

Festive Flowers

This winter, a floral-inspired manicure is an ode to the season’s classic red poinsettias. Remember to add a strong top coat for long staying power.
