20 Christmas Nail Art Ideas You'll Want to Re-Create Now

Here at Byrdie HQ, we love a bit of nail art. Whether it's simplistic negative space designs or full-on glitterazzi transfers, if your mani is mixing it up, we want to see it. In my opinion, there's no better time to experiment with your nails than the Christmas period. Why? Well because whether you're feeling festive yet or not, Christmas nail art always helps to make you feel that little bit more party-ready.

But Christmas nails don't have to mean mini Santa designs painted onto every nail (although, they can mean that too). Our favourite Christmas nail designs are the kind you can probably get away with wearing all year round—just with an extra bit of festive sparkle and flair. To give you some serious manicure envy, we've stalked some of our favourite nail accounts, salons and artists to compile our ultimate list of Christmas nail art inspo.
