10 Festive Fingertips Perfect For Christmas

by Jennifer McShane
06th Dec 2015

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?
