In the past, PD has presented you guys with great ideas scavenged from the depths of the interwebs for Halloween inspired nails, but what about Christmas? Surely, with all that is wrong with the EPA, IRS, and the other ten thousand acronyms linked to the Obama Administration, a festive manicure could do wonders to boost one’s spirits…right?
In that case as always, PD has you covered.
We’ll start with these amazing We Three Kings nails.
Time consuming? Definitely. Worth it? Absolutely.
Charlotte Olympia put English Christmas puddings back on the map last year, and there they’ve stayed. You can go simplistic with the look above, or strive for a little bling below. Both camp looks embody the concept of fun—a term those awake to tyranny rarely use.
Are you usually into the boardroom uniform of a French manicure? Then the below look is one you might migrate to.
Red with green tips, and a reverse accent nail, this whole look can be done in no time flat. If you’ve already been hitting the eggnog (and who can blame you with the UN mandating 2014 to be the Year of Palestine) and fear you won’t have a steady hand, you can always use tape to get those perfect lines.
Speaking of lines, how do you feel about these candy cane inspired stripes?
If green is a bit too much for you, then there’s always classic red.
Or red swirl.
If the swirl look feels too ambitious, again using tape you can get the above look in a snap.
This month, you’ll find PD is going to be especially big on the Burl Ives classic, “Silver and Gold.” This manicure fits that motif to a perfect ‘T’ and if you find you’re not a holly artist you can always opt for holiday nail stickers. Be sure to add a clear top coat to keep the stickers from peeling prematurely.
If you like the holly idea, then these holly tips on white are a great twist.
You can always embrace the green of the holly leaves for this look.
Are you really in desperate need of a dose of whimsy this year? Try this Frosty on blue approach.
In a hurry? Then go pop some stickers on blue for a similar effect.
Not sure about the above looks? Need to keep everything on the business level? Try the manicure above. At first look, everything is on the up and up with the red, but the pop of gold on the second glance pulls the manicure together in a pleasant, yet professional holiday look.
Which manicure do you like the best, and which do you think you’ll most likely be courting this season?
