11. White & Blue Snowflakes

We don’t know whether it’s the Frozen thing or if it’s always been the case, but blue, white and silver are now considered to be some of the ‘classiest’ colors you can pick this year. A simple blue background with white snowflakes is just as effective as some of the more complicated styles you may have seen, and the slight addition of discreet glitter just adds to the snowy appeal.

12. Cute Snowman Nails

Such a simple look and yet so effective! Simple paint your nails white, paint on a little scarf and some eyes, an orange carrot nose and what do you have – the best, simplest festive nails! Sometimes it pays to go back to basics. You could even get your kids to give you a hand with these!

13. Reindeer Accent Nail

Another classic example of making one nail the focus nail, we love this cheeky Rudolph poking out from the tip. When did festive nails get so serious anyway?

14. White & Pink Manicure with a Pop of Gold

The dotted effect on the white nail here is so effective, you’d be forgiven for wanting it on EVERY nail! Using an old hair grip or something with a round tip, dip into the color and then onto your nails, placed in such a way it could almost look like a Christmas tree. Throw some contrasting colored glitter over the top and it’ll look like someone’s turned the Christmas tree lights on.

15. Christmas Sweater Inspired Manicure

The Christmas sweater nails are back and they’re going to keep coming back too! These nails are so band on trend right now and with the help of a clean brush and some white on a contrasting background, are great for a last minute festive addition. Add a top coat over the top and away you go!

16. Penguin Nails

We’re bringing sparkly back with these bold penguin nails. Winter is the perfect time to set that glitter free so why not go all-out with a sparkly base? It makes the perfect backdrop for a cute penguin!

17. White Nails with a Snowman

It’s like a french manicure but with extra winter thrown in for good measure. Add some extra white-tips and include a few dots to make it look like snow, and throw on a snowman to really add to the festivities. Who said baby pink couldn’t be Christmassy?

18. Winter Trees Nail Art

It’s such a great look and also a very simple design. If you have white polish and pink polish, use an extra small bowl to mix a little of the two colors together to give you the in-between shade of these trees. You have the pink background, pink mixed with white for the trees, and white on it’s own for the tips. All you need to do is add some (optional) glitter and top coat over the top and it’s another look that you can do at home in a few minutes.

It’s a look that is fast becoming very popular and is definitely one you should try this winter if you want to be on trend.
