Even if you’re not inclined to go all-out when it comes to Christmas outfits, sprinkling a few seasonal motifs onto your nails is one way to embrace the holidays without going overboard. And you’ll be right on trend, as everyone’s partial to having a miniature Santa Claus on their fingertips during this time of year, right? It can’t just be us. Anyhow, Instagram, as usual, is perfect for pinpointing some incredible Christmas nail art that you can attempt yourself at home (or beg slash bribe a more skilled friend to help you out). If all else fails, bring a snap along to your next nail appointment where a professional can make your festive nail dreams a reality.
It was hard to pick just ten, but we reckon we could at least try to recreate the below nail art at some point over the holidays. Scroll down to be simultaneously inspired and envious. Would you be brave enough to attempt this nail art yourself?

December 6th for #glamnailschallenge is #santaclaus I used a tester polish from @parrot_polish as the base (wish it had a name! I love it! ) Then I stamped using my creative stamper using plates from @moyou_london festive plate 06 on my pinky and index and used @uberchicbeauty Christmas plate for my middle nail and ring finger. I did reverse stamping for the Santa using @essiepolish Happy Wife Happy Life, @chinaglazeofficial White on White and @opi_products My Vampire Is Buff. Then topped it all off with @glistenandglow1 #hkgirltopcoat .
