The big day is almost here, and do you know how you’re painting your nails? I haven’t decided yet…I know I’m leaving it close, but I think it might be some new christmas nail wraps that were just sent to me. Otherwise, I have a bunch of christmas nail art designs I’ve played with over the last month that haven’t quite made it to nailthataccent.com so I wanted to make sure you saw them.

This design was created using Essie Twin Sweater Set, OPI Haven’t the Foggiest, OPI I Snow You Love Me, and Nails Inc Silver. This is a fun and classy look with some elegance to boot.

Red and silver stripes

 

This design was created using Color Club Cherub and OPI Silent Stars Go By. I created the ornaments with a small nail art brush and black and silver acrylic paint. I think I’m absolutely loving this holographic polish. I’m going to have to experiment more with it.

Holographic Ornaments

 

For those of you who like a textured look and want something a little more edgy, this is OPI Liquid Sand Emotions and OPI My Favorite Ornament which a super sparkly gold glitter. I then stamped on some black snowflakes using a regular black polish using Winstonia plate W120.

Gold and Black Textured Snowflakes

 

I think this is my favourite design yet. It’s sophisticated, yet soft and pretty at the same time. It has just enough sparkle to wear for that special occasion, yet the winter white makes it feel calm and down to earth. The white is Motives Wedding Dress which is my new favourite white, and the blue is OPI liquid sand Tiffany Case. The studs were purchased from Winstonia Store.

White and Blue Snowflake

 

I had a lot of great feedback on Instagram on these particular nails. I was feeling a little blue the day I created them, so decided to go with that blue theme. All polishes were purchased from Urban Outfitters (Blue Velvet, Pixie and Bohemian Summer). I then used my Christmas Tree charm purchased from Hex Jewelry. This is the same charm I used in my pastel christmas nails HERE. The trees on the ring finger were stamped using Winstonia plate W120.

I created these mittens nails for a nailart challenge on Instagram and I really like how they turned out. I used Essie Twin Sweater Set as my base and then hand painted the mittens with acrylic paint. I love these nails as they bring back fond memories of being a kid and trying to string my mittens through my winter jacket.

If you think sophisticated should be saved for New Year’s Eve then why not wear some cutesie Snowman nail art? I created this design using Motives Wedding Dress and Daydream for the snowman, background blue and snow. The rest of the colors used were acrylic paints painted with a small nailart brush. I love my Mr. Snowman and birdie.

Well I think I’m finished with Christmas nail art designs. On to planning for New Year’s Eve. I hope you enjoyed some of these Christmas nail art looks and can find something that you might want to try. If you do, I would love to see it!

Until next time,
