All things considered, Christmas, for me, is all about the color red. Some might think it’s overpowering with everything around already in the red, but I believe it’s perfect. There is no other color that sets the Christmassy vibe. Let’s get into the Christmas spirit, shall we? Is it too late? No. I can assure you.
Taking a look at the nail art trends this year, I would say “less is more” seems to be my favorite aesthetic so far. I believe the opposite is true for festive moods. Festivals are about going all out for one time of the year, and it better be grand. If not now, then when? Festivals and Birthdays are the only occasions to experiment with new trends and expensive stuff to feel extra special.
Let’s check out a bunch of top favorites, trendy and cute Christmas nail art designs from classics to DIY options. Some might be better executed through a nail artist, and some you can do in the comfort of your home using simple nail art tools. Read on more to find out my go-to nail art and look for this Christmas.
