Beauty: Christmas Nails

The perfect nails for Christmas; from metallic and magic to sparkle and snow

Christmas is less than a week away and with those last minute presents finally wrapped and put under the tree it’s the perfect time to give yourself a merry manicure. If you’re not ready to rock the full on Christmas jumper or wear the musical earrings that sing every Christmas tune out there then why not just add some festivity to your fingernails?

If you can book yourself in for a cheeky Christmas nail makeover before the 25th then fabulous, if not then do not fear as nailing the decorative designs has never been so easy. Check out the top 5 nails perfect for the most wonderful time of the year

The ultimate Christmas nail choice has to be the rich Santa Claus red with a dash of sparkle, whether you decide to go for a red glitter or add some extra sparkle with a gold overlay or gold shimmering tips it’s a sure-fire way to make the simplest of outfits festive

For the snow queen in all of us a pale pink shade dotted with sparkling nail gems of any kind is a simple yet feminine Christmas manicure that looks even better on stilettos nails. Layer up the pink for a strong but sweet colour, wait for it to dry then simply apply the self-adhesive gems for a manicure fit for a royalty.

There are so many different tools available on the high street now that all you need for creating some cool nail art is patience and steady hand!
This glittering blue from Revlon is the perfect setting for a snow inspired design; four coatings are needed with glittery lacquers to ensure you have perfect pigment. Once the polish has dried use the Barry M pen to create whatever snow inspired pattern you like; whether it’s a flurry of snowflakes or falling stars it’s time to get creative!

To make your nails look as though they are covered in tinsel with twinkling fairy lights apply this metallic emerald green by Nubar and top off with Barry M’s superbly named Christmas Tree varnish.  The two will create a dazzling array with the purple, red and gold sequins shining just like baubles on a tree.

5. Christmas Star; Gold Enamel by Guerlain
If you want a more subtle approach, nothing screams Christmas quite like a polish that is as shimmering, smooth and beautiful as liquid gold. This designer hue from Guerlain is a chic, stylish yet delightfully Christmas inspired lacquer that will have you shining brighter than the star atop of the tree.
