75 Christmas Nails Designs & Nail Art For 2022

Christmas Nails

The best part about Christmas is getting to enjoy all the festive-themed shenanigans. From ugly sweaters to gingerbread cookies, decking the home with lights, sipping on eggnog, and getting to enjoy a manicure that’s all about Christmas. Whether you want to go all in with themed motifs or just want to enjoy a simple manicure in shades of red and green, we have got 75 varied Christmas nails designs on this list to help you find your perfect holiday mani to take some inspiration from! 

#1 The green of Christmas can be found everywhere – wreaths, trees, lights, or themed desserts. Bring the dark fir green into your manicure with this gorgeous Christmas nail art done on almond-shaped nails. If you’re wondering how to do Christmas nails at home, here’s an easy one to pick the challenge. Start by shaping your nails and paint them green leaving the ring finger and pinky finger. Paint the pinky in white and to create the perfect sectioning on the ring nail, you can use a nail art tool or use tape to section the lines. This is a beginner-level Christmas nail art and perfect for those who don’t have time or want to save some bucks from a professional mani.

#2 These short Christmas nails are gorgeous and practical. Long nails are not every women’s cup of tea. Especially for those who have to do housework on a regular basis or have small kids. Another reason why women are ditching longer nails is because of their unhygienic nature. Longer nails can harbor 32 different bacteria and 28 different fungi, according to a report published by USA Today. The study further established the presence of MRSA, methicillin-resistant Staph Aureus, in almost half of the fingernail samples. If you have a small kid to take care of, it makes sense to stray away from longer nails for a while. This, and many other small Christmas nail art, on this list, will help you don a glamorous mani this 2022 holiday season and get into the cheery festive spirit.

#3 One of the best parts about Christmas is the gifts. Bringing this joyful Christmas activity to your nails is this gift-wrap-inspired nail art done in a pristine white color as a base and red accents on top. In this stunning set, four nails get diagonal red lines atop a snowy-white background and one accent nail sets the manicure apart with a wrapping knot motif done neatly and flawlessly. We love how it’s snapped in front of the gift paper itself to give a not-so-subtle nod to the tradition it’s referring to!

#4 The understated clumsiness of this nail art is exactly what makes this endearing, and is a perfect inspiration for women who’d want to do a Christmas nail design at home but wondering if it will come out as good as the Pinterest picture they have saved. Turns out, it doesn’t matter at all! The slight disuniformity only makes it more cute and merry. Try the next mani on our list with gifts, desserts, and tree motifs all catered to the festivities. It’s done in matte colors, and we’d suggest taking the same route as it makes the motifs pop out more.

#5 Almond nails are favored by women whether they are going for short nails or long nails because of their ability to make your fingers look longer and add a feminine touch to the manicure. Opt for this nail shape if you want the same attributes in your manicure. This beautiful set is done in gloss red nails and bedecked in snowflake art. Snowflakes are popular on nails during the winter season, and this one is relevant to not just Christmas but the cozy weather as well.

#6 Studs, glitter, long nails – this is the ideal Christmas nail idea for those looking to go bold with their manicure this holiday season. Curated by Stockholm-based nail technician @beautiful_in_light, the stunning design is a work of art and a nod to the artist’s true passion for her work. With more than 100k followers and 700+ posts, you can find many other such glamorous Christmas nails 2022 on her Instagram. Certainly, a striking manicure like this is all you need when you want that extra push to get into the holiday spirit.

#7 You don’t always have to have red or green in everything festive-themed. People who want to do things differently are, in fact, also decorating their Christmas trees entirely in white and silver embellishments, ditching the colors completely, and using a neutral palette to create the snug and pleasant feeling of Christmas. You can bring the same theme into your manicure by painting them in transparent gloss and elevating them with charcoal grey accents covered in glitter reminiscent of the starry winter night sky. Take the mani up a notch by wearing some statement rings and you won’t be able to stop staring at your hands at every chance you get.

#8 We see Santa, reindeer, and trees as Christmas motifs on nails all the time. Seldom do we see Christmas lights drawn on manicures though! That’s what makes these Christmas acrylic nails stand out. The art in both hands matches some nails and differs on others for a beautiful complementary design. While the lights and Santa motifs stay the same, one hand has a tree motif and a red nail with a golden accent, the other one has a reindeer and a black nail with a golden accent. Because of the easy drawings, they can be done at home by someone with a medium level of creativity in nail designs.

#9 Ditching the usual red & green Christmas nail colors again, this design only features a glitter polish done on small nails for an elegant yet easy Christmas manicure. Some people do consider glitter nails tacky and out-of-style. The former can be somewhat of a personal preference but the latter is certainly not true. Glitter nails are the ideal way to add some definition and detail to your manicure without doing much. It can be all glitter or some accents – it doesn’t matter. Some sparkle in any form can make your nails look festive without doing much.

#10 Gingerbread houses and gingerbread cookies are possibly one of the most Christmas-y traditions you can indulge in during the holidays. The tradition can be traced back to ancient homes but the earliest documented accounts of the modern tradition of figure-shaped gingerbread are traced to Elizabeth I’s reign when she got them made as per the likeness of her guests. Today, they can be seen baked in many households and bakeries around the time of Christmas, so naturally when you want to give a festive feel to your nails, painting them in gingerbread motifs seems like an obvious thing. Take the next design as an inspiration for the same.

#11 The eye-catching color combination of red and white can be found everywhere around the holidays. It’s aesthetic, it’s elegant, and it’s timeless – being employed for ages in everything festive-themed. You certainly can’t go wrong with this color combination for your Christmas nail art. The nails alternatively have a base of red and white with geometric patterns in the other color. Only the ring finger has a white base with blue dots to give the look of cookie-style nail polishes. The thumb is done in complete red polish without any patterns or motifs to balance the drama of the rest of the design.

#12 These short Christmas nails are captivating and exquisitely done! They are done on a red glitter base for a bewitching background and decorated using silver glitter and white polish patterns. The square nail shape adds minimalism and elegance to this design. Not just the patterns, but the nail shape is easy to do at home as well. Square nails are trending in 2022, as per an article published by The Zoe Report. They also give an impression of a wider nail bed and are less resistant to impact, making your manicure last longer. If you’re opting out of both gels and acrylics this holiday season and want a nail type to last longer, go for square nails.

#13 Playing with a different shade of red to enhance the usual red-white Christmas combo is a simple yet creative option. The thumb is painted in an entire red polish with the pinky and index finger done in red base and white vertical and criss-cross lines respectively. The ring finger is done in the winter-specific cable knit sweater art and the middle finger stands out in a merlot red base embellished by a snowflake pattern. If you’re doing this design at home, you can skip the sweater pattern and just paint the ring finger in white for an easy and doable version of this one of the Christmas nail designs.

#14 These Christmas acrylic nails are teeming with motifs and geometric patterns on a transparent base with just one nail covered in glitter red nail. Done by California-based @usanailsandspa805, the design is both elegant and bewitching. There’s really no wrong way of doing Christmas nail art. Just pick the one that resonates with you more. This one, for example, is the perfect option for someone who wants long nails yet simple motifs to bedeck them creating a good balance of glam and subtlety. Don’t you think?

#15 Done in a neutral pink base with an ombre pattern on two nails and a soft blue glitter on one, this nail design is a good example of holiday nail art without the use of bold colors. Sparkle is anyways everywhere during Christmas. From the twinkling lights to the decorating balls and sequinned dresses, glimmer is an ideal way to enjoy the holiday season vibes without doing much. If you’re thinking of bringing this holiday sparkle to your manicure, here’s a gorgeous example of how you can do so with creativity and charm.

#16 Ah! The sweater-weather calls for some cable-knit sweater patterns on your nails too. With the buzzing creativity of nail technicians, there’s really nothing you love that can’t be physically manifested into your manicure. Be it your favorite animated character to your beloved festival motif, they can do it all! Here, the short almond nails are doused in a light gray shade with an accent nail in golden glitter. The middle nail is done in a sweater pattern to give a nod to the season while the ring finger has a reindeer to give a nod to the holidays. While the thumb isn’t shown, you can use your creativity to either add another motif to the grey base or cover it in golden glitter polish as well.

#17 Cold weather is beloved by many. The shorter days and longer nights give you more time to relax and cozy up at your home. It’s also the time of holidays when people get some time off and spend the festivals with their families after a long year of hard work and running around. The quiet weather also gives people some time to relax, break the humdrum of routine, and find peace again. To give a nod to your favorite season, make your Christmas nails all about the winters by depicting snowflakes, winter dogs, and snow-covered mountain peaks on your manicure.

#18 Santa Claus is one of the most beloved figures across the world and is a legendary character that filled our childhood dreams. When you want to relive those innocent childhood tales, there’s nothing better than depicting the Santa motifs on your manicure. From his giant tummy to his happy, grandpa face, this Christmas nail art design portrays them all. Not just elders, but if you have a small kid in your home who wants a manicure to celebrate the Christmas spirit, get her this enduring set of nails as the easy outline and filling can be easily done at home as well.

#19 The Christmas French tip nails are popular and are often searched around the holiday time. Women who prefer simplicity, minimalism, and elegance in their nails, there’s nothing better than picking these Christmas nails in French tip design for the holiday season. They can be done in both acrylics and gel so you enjoy them for 2 to 3 weeks without any wearing off. But they can also be done at home, although do make sure they’re done with neatness as a French manicure is all about those flawless tips. To create that white line accent, first, paint the tips white and then section the red part instead of going the other way around.

#20 Ditching the usual forest green for the Christmas nails, this gorgeous set uses a lighter green background in glitter with gingerbread, leaf, and a twinkling star motif on each nail. To enhance the design, the middle nail is done in horizontal lines of red, silver glitter, and white for a unique touch. Even though longer nails can give you more area for creative expression, shorter nails can also be used to demonstrate your artistic streak, when done strategically. The next one of the Christmas nail designs surely makes the case for ingenuity and creativity in short Christmas nails.

#21 These coffin Christmas nails are minimalistic and elegant and give off the perfect festive vibes with their subtle shimmer and snowflake art. Coffin nail shape has become one of the most emerging trends in nail art. A favorite among celebrities like the Kardashians & Jenner, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna, the nails are tapered at the ends and squared off just like in the shape of a coffin. If you’re wanting to give your nails a modish twist, opting for a coffin nail shape can do the trick in itself. They can be both long or short, depending on your personal preference.

#22 When you don’t have time to get the holiday nails from an expert or just want to go simple & minimal this holiday season, the next one of the Christmas nail art is just what you need for inspiration. It’s done in the usual red-green shade of Christmas colors combined with pink & white. While these are done on short nails, you can paint them on any nail length or shape as per your preferences. You can also do another variation of this colorful mani by using two shades of red – preferably merlot and bright red – and paint one nail white for an accent.

#23 These long coffin nails are gorgeous, glamorous, and absolutely stunning! Longer nails are preferred by women because of their femininity, eye-catchiness, and ample space for creative expression. This nail length was earlier a sign of higher social status as it was believed these women could afford to maintain them and also has lesser housework which can cause damage to them. Longer nails surely are a commitment, but if you think you can manage them, here’s a gorgeous design for this nail length to try for Christmas nails 2022. Needless to say, trust an expert to get this design as acrylics or gel makes the longer set last better.

#24 These peach nails are absolutely stunning! This one of the Christmas nail designs employs polka dots, stripes, glitter, and white accents, and brings them all together for alluring nail art. If you’re looking for a color other than red & green to grace your manicure for these holidays, peach can be an ideal color. It’s soft yet vibrant, calm yet makes a statement, and playful yet has an intense energy. Not just for winters, it makes for an epic hue for summer nails or spring nail designs as well.

#25 The power of pink can never be denied, no matter the season, the occasion, or the festival. If you’ve ever wondered why girls love pink and have preferred the hue, there are biological reasons for our inherent favoritism. It’s believed that in historic times women whose main role was food gathering developed a vision to spot pink or other bright colors so they could find ripe fruits in the forest. Biologically, it’s believed that women favor pink to support their role as a caretaker for their kids. Since the face changes color to pink when a kid is crying or angry or blushing, they can spot these emotions instantly and react accordingly. Now that you know your preference for pink isn’t baseless, here’s a pink nail art to help you express your love for the color in the upcoming festive season.

#26 When you’re opting for a more neutral color tone for your Christmas decor, why not opt for the same palette in your manicure as well? Atop a beautiful beige base, there’s an endearing reindeer motif and a geometric horizontal pattern for subtle creativity into the mani. We also love how the manicure is snapped against a twinkling Christmas tree and a candy cane in hand to flaunt the beautiful setting on social media and keep them saved for memories.

#27 These starry nails on a cream base and red & golden glitter shade exude festival spirit whilst keeping it classic at the same time. Stars are particularly clearly visible in winter when the nights are darker and days are shorter. Spotting stars has always been symbolically significant as they represent forever, hope, destiny, and freedom. Donning them on your manicure gives you a little nudge on their significance every time you look at them and it’s a beautiful feeling, isn’t it?

#28 Almond nail shape is always appealing and striking – no matter if you opt for a shorter nail length or a bigger one. They are a good pick for anyone who wants to give a narrower appearance to their nail bed and a longer appearance to their fingers. To elevate this nail shape further, here’s a design bedecked in studs, glitter, and winter-specific motifs to try.

#29 What an eye-catching twist to the usual Christmas French nails by giving the index and ring fingers a candy-cane pattern! The nail base also reflects a very soft pink color for a wonderful visual effect. To recreate at home, start by applying a baby pink color on the base and letting it dry completely. Now section the tips carefully using a dotting tool ensuring each nail has the same width in the tips. Cover the top section in red polish and let them dry fully. Now, section the white parts and start painting them. You can take bigger sections out if you aren’t confident to create so many sections. Let them be or cover them all in a gloss top coat for a shimmering effect.

#30 Yes, that’s right. Christmas nails don’t necessarily have to be red & green always. We have given you plenty of options on this list in other colors and here’s more! Navy blue, off-white, and gorgeous grey color. As you can see, it looks amazing with the Christmas’ aesthetic and there’s certainly not a reason not to try it for those looking for a different palette for their holiday manicure.

#31 Yet another starry affair to remember! The nude nails are elevated by the stars & glitter design on the middle and ring finger. To recreate them at home, you can use star stickers on the top of the glitter nail instead of using the dotting tool. Cover them in a gloss-top coating for the same glass finish as shown in the picture. The best part about these nails is they can work well with any nail shape of your choice and are a great pick for DIY Christmas nail ideas at the last minute.

#32 While pastel colors are generally preferred for spring rather than winter, there’s no rule that you can’t sport them if those hues are what get you into the festive spirit. Enhanced by 3-D motifs of heart and polka dots alongside snowflake motifs, we absolutely love these fresh Christmas nails that can transfer you back to the beauty of spring whilst you’re enjoying the joyous season of Christmas & New Year.

#33 We had our hearts on these white nails at the first look. White is preferred for winters as they match the pristine attribute of the snow. On top of that, you draw a Christmas tree and snowdrop falling and you have made your manicure both Christmas-themed and season-themed. These nails will look great in the winter Sun, but also in the Christmas lights at night. A versatile design that will go with all outfits you’re planning to wear this festive season!

#34 These long coffin Christmas nails are glamorous and gorgeous at the same time. It’s also proof that long nails can exude simplicity as well and at the same time get you into the holiday spirit. A combination of pale pink with gray emphasized by 3-D art and minimal studs is fresh, modern, and picturesque to wear during the Christmas season. The subtle colors also ensure you make a statement without any vibrant shades.

#35 Brown glitter nails with some done in French tips pattern and others done on complete nails is stylish and stunning. It’s the ring finger though that takes the attention with a white drip pattern embellished further by a cheery & leaf motif. Not just brown, you can use other shades of your favorite glitter as well like Christmas-themed forest green and bright red or grey or even navy blue can work for the same design.

#36 It takes immense creativity to curate a set of nails that are different than each other and yet complement perfectly. Here, the combination of blue and gray are employed to denote the scenic winter sky teeming with twinkling stars. The ring finger also has the night sky art in full throttle with a snowflake motif.

#38 While red French tip Christmas nails are popular for the festive season, you can amp it up a notch by including holiday-themed motifs into the mani as well. French tips are also one of the easiest Christmas nails to try at home and when it comes to motifs, you can easily opt for a Christmas nail press-on that sticks these stamps onto your art. Many of these stampers last as long as your manicure. Just make sure you put enough glue and cover it in gloss to really make it last.

#43 One of the many joys of Christmas is the delicious desserts we get to enjoy at the festivals. Gingerbread cookies, trifles, and traditional pudding are some of the most popular of them all. The Christmas pudding is one of the oldest dated desserts served as part of Christmas dinner. Originating in Britain, the traditional dessert was transferred to many countries during colonization. If you’re someone who loves (& lives) for Christmas pudding, bring your love for the dessert to your Christmas nail idea and bedeck some of the nails with a motif of this delectable dessert.

If that’s your motto this Christmas season, you’d love to sport this combination on your short Christmas nails without any qualms.

#59 Besides red, green is one of the most popular shades found in the Christmas palette. It’s believed that green symbolism stands for Christ’s life and eternal nature.

If you’re wanting to go the non-gloss route this festive season, here are matte Christmas nails just perfect for inspiration. They feature the sweater design and snowflake for motifs and a classic red nail for an elegant touch. FYI: Matte nails last for a shorter time than gloss, so if that’s what you’re looking for then gloss nails are a better to pick for you.
