1. Gold And Red Christmas Tree
How cute is that Christmas tree? What I love about this design is that you only have to work on one nail.
This tree is pretty easy to make. Just get some tape and make the form of the tree.
The start at the top can be a little tricky to make, but you can always put a sticker to replace it.
Nail Polish You Need: Dorothy’s Stilettos, Mirage, and Emerald Memories.
For the white nail polish, I recommend the Sally Hansen Color Therapy Well, Well, Well. For me, is the best white nail polish I have tried in years. I love the formula and it lasts long on your nail!
2. Santa Claus Hat
Again, you just have to do the design in one nail. That’s honestly the best! I’m right-handed, and I struggle a lot when I have to use my left hand to do the design.
The hat shape in very easy to make, you just need to add the white parts; and in a few steps, you have your Santa Claus hats ready.
Like I mention in the previous Christmas nail art design, you should try the Sally Hansen Color Therapy Well, Well, Well for the white part.
I also recommend the Essie Rock the Runaway because it’s a very bright red and it would look perfect!
3. Christmas Glitter
These nails don’t have any design in particular and it’s something very pretty and easy to recreate.
If you think that drawing forms with nail polish is too hard for you, then this Christmas nail art design is perfect for you. I love the glitter and the neutral color under it.
I tried to find that particular glittery nail polish from China Glaze, but it looks like it’s not available anymore.
A good option to recreate this design is to get two different glittery nail polish. Or you can get this nail polish from Etsy, that’s very similar to the one from China Glaze. Here’s another option.
For the base, you can use Rainwear Don’t Care by Essie. It has a similar look to the one used in this picture.
4. Gold, Red, And Polka Dots
This design is super cute and very easy to recreate. You just will need a tool that will help you to make the dots.
If you don’t have at home a nail dotting pen (this set is only $3.80, and in my opinion, is worth to have it), you can use the end of a paintbrush.
For this design, you can use Sally Hansen Well, Well, Well; China Glaze China Rouge for the red tone; and Up Front & Personal by OPI for the golden glitter.
5. Candy Cane
I’m not a big fan of candy cane, but these nails are super fun to make! You just need to make a few lines and you are done. Perfect for the season, and even better if your nails are long.
For this easy Christmas nail art design I would recommend Sally Hansen Well, Well, Well; and A Little Guilt Under The Kilt from OPI.
6. Minimalist Tree
This is a very creative and minimalist nail art design. I love how simple it is! Just add a start sticker and you are done. Super pretty!
To recreate this design, I would recommend a bright red tone, like the OPI Red Hot Rio; and for the gold Christmas Tree, you can use Up Front & Personal by OPI
7. Last Minute Christmas Nails
This has to be one of my favorites Christmas nail art design from the list. It’s simple and easy to recreate.
I love the colors and the glitter is so pretty! Even though that glitter nail polish (Bring on the Bling by OPI) is not available anymore, I found a similar one that would look perfect on your nails!
For the red nails, use OPI Red Hot Rio; for the green nail polish, you can use OPI Stay Off the Lawn!; and for the glitter part, you can use this nail polish I found on Etsy, super similar to Bring on the Bling!
8. Christmas Wrapping Paper
I’m obsessed with this Christmas nail art design. It looks harder to recreate than the others; but I’m sure that with the right tools, you can make it work.
I might not include the fox to make it easier. I just love how the white, the two different gold tones and black look together!
To make this Christmas nail art design at home, I recommend using Well, Well, Well by Sally Hansen for the white base. For the gold parts, you can use Mirage by Ella + Mila and Million Mile Hues by Essie; and for the black, you can use OPI Black Onyx.
9. Christmas Tree + Ornament
Even though the details can get a little tricky, the ornament and Christmas tree aren’t that hard if you have the perfect tools to make them.
The colors you can use for this design are Bogotá Blackberry by OPI; Well, Well, Well by Sally Hansen; and Sinful Colors, Queen of Beauty (currently $2 on Walmart!)
10. Glittery Santa
Of course, Santa Claus needs to be on your nails for the holiday season!
Pinterest has many ideas, but most Santas were too tricky to draw and look way too perfect. But this one looks very easy to make!
For the color red, you can use Essie Rock the Runaway. For the glitters tones, you can use Rock at the Top by Essie and Sparkle On Top by Essie on top of Well, Well, Well by Sally Hansen.
11. Easy Christmas Trees

I love the colors and how cute this snowman is. Perfect for the cold weather!
The moment I saw this design, imagine it with Let Love Sparkle by OPI, it’s the perfect nail polish for this design!
14. Polka Dot Reindeer
I have seen many reindeer on Pinterest, but they look so hard! Others have too many details that I know I won’t be able to make. That’s why I love this one! It looks very simple to recreate.

Get your tape and star stickers, and get ready this look with the colors: Born to Rule by China Glaze; and Well, Well, Well by Sally Hansen.
17. Minimalist Nails
For this design, you will need gold nail stripping tape, nail stickers, a nude nail polish, and Amore at the Grand Canal by OPI.
18. Christmas Lights
This one looks a little harder. Trying to glue the threads can be a little tricky especially if you are looking for a shape in particular, but once you have that done you can easily draw the Christmas lights.
For the lights, you can use Essie Rock the Runaway and Evergreen by Zoya; and for the background, you can use Well, Well, Well by Sally Hansen.
