When it comes to the holidays, you can never have enough bling, and that includes a holiday manicure. While I always love being mesmerized by the professional quality mani of a cosmetologist or the seamless look of a nail wrap, I personally love finding manicures that I can replicate myself. I’m a mom and I need something practical, but something that’s also fun and something I can do on my own. You know, when I have all that free time? Anyways, here are my favorite Christmas nail art ideas that I hope to try this year!

1. Holiday Greenery

While this accent nail may have been done with a stamp, I firmly believe it’s possible to replicate free hand. I love the whimsical Christmas tree, topped with glitter and surrounded by simple green sparkly polish. You can totally do this!

2. Gingerbread House

Forget making your own gingerbread house that no one will eat anyway, and channel that energy into this cute manicure. It may take a few tries, but the result is super cute, and without all the extra calories from those gumdrops!

3. Festive Reds

This simple, yet stunning, red manicure is super easy to replicate. Just grab two shades of red, one sparkly of course, and alternate painting colors. This is the perfect mani for a holiday party, or to wear in the office if you need to keep it professional.
