Easy: Festive Minimalism Nail Art
When the festive season approaches, as beauty enthusiasts, we have a few things on our minds: what to buy our friends and family, what festive beauty launches we might invest in for ourselves, and how we're going to settle on just one nail art design.
Whether or not you want to take a trip to the salon this year (which are are actually still open regardless of what tier your city is in), there are plenty of festive-themed manicures to choose from. We've gathered some of the best Christmas, Hanukkah, and just beautifully wintery nail art designs from Instagram to choose from, whether you want to paint your nails at home or have your favourite nail tech do them for you.
And regardless of your nail art skill set, we've included an option for everyone. For beginners and those without much of an artistic flare, there's a simple manicure with just red or green tips, or sheer nails with festive polka dots. For these, all you'll need is your festive nail polish shades and maybe a striping brush and dotting tool (which, if you don't have, you can use a toothpick, push pin, or mechanical pencil). But for those who want to head to the salon and have their nails done, or who have the patience and steady hand to paint tiny little elves or menorahs on their nails, well, we've got those, too. Just be prepared, you're probably going to need an arsenal of tools to achieve them.
Ahead, get a closer look at all of our favourite festive nail art designs to take inspiration from.
