Christmas Nail Art Idea Round-up!

Good afternoon, readers! Monday starts Winter Wonderland Week with The Digit-al Dozen and I've been going through some of my old ideas for Christmas/winter nails from the past few years. Today's post is a round up of my previous nail art looks to hopefully give you some ideas for this holiday season!

Click on each picture to go to the design's original post and learn more about how to recreate it!

Happy Birthday, Jesus!
The real reason for Christmas, these were my nails last year and I loved how they turned out.

It's no secret that I've created quite a few Christmas Tree designs! Take a look: 

Fuzzy Christmas Trees!
One of my favorite Christmas designs ever, even if not very practical.

Textured Christmas Tree Tape Mani
Striping tape and textured polishes make for a fun holiday design.

Abstract Christmas Tree
A simple gold glitter cuticle gradient pairs well with this abstract Christmas tree accent nail.

Watermarble Christmas Tree and Presents
I watermarbled to create a tree shape and added striping tape and gold bows for the present nails!

Holiday Saran Wrap
The base of this manicure is a saran wrap texture with red and gold.

My First Christmas Tree Nail Art
This was the first manicure I did with a Christmas tree, 3 years ago, and it's simple enough to easily recreate with glitter ornaments.

Fuzzy Wreaths
The flocking powder addition to just the green wreaths make this mani SO fun!

Textured Half Moon Wreaths
This incorporates Christmas into the popular half moon mani, and the texture is a nice addition!

Snow Globes!
Who doesn't love snow globes? It was easy to make these into nail art.

Textured Peppermint Swirls
Another favorite I have done, and I couldn't help but add texture!

Fuzzy Santa Suit French Tips
A matte velvet red base with white flocking powder tips really resemble Santa's suit!

Simple Gingerbread Men Stamps!
Sometimes simple stamping can be really fun.

Metallic Elf Clothing  Nail Art
Elves wear the cutest clothes!

Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer
The Abominable Snowman and Rudolf have flocking powder accents. (Find a tutorial for The Abominable Snowman on my Tutorials Page Tab!)

Doctor Who Killer Snowmen
Okay, maybe not so "Christmasy," but you could definitely do some happier snowmen with this same idea in mind!

Frosty The Snowman
A more traditional snowman with iridescent glitter and snowflakes.

Christmas Themed Stamping
A green base with red glitter looks great in contrast to the golden Christmas stamping!

Red, Green, and Gold Grunge
Using the distressed dry brush technique, all the Christmas colors come together for a unique look.

Christmas Glitter Gradient
Looking for something glamorous? This Christmas glitter gradient is easy and quick!
