11 Gorgeous Festive Manicures To Wear This Season

New Banner

The festive season isn’t just about your friends or the fam; it is also about taking some time off work and focusing on yourself. One way to really pamper yourself is to take the time to splurge on your beauty rituals; spas and nail bars included! A chic update will be to get rid of boring French tips and opt for gorgeous festive manicures instead. Here are some trendy nail art designs to try out this festive season.

1. Metallic Gold

If your festive ensemble is already quite heavy with embellishments, a solid yet bold manicure can balance it off. Plus, the clean gold manicure almost looks like an accessory; so give the rings a miss maybe?

2. All About The Beads

Diamante, rhinestones and beads can be stacked and glued to create this effortlessly chic manicure. If your go-to aesthetic is anything but minimal, the beaded nails option will satisfy your need to be *extra*.

3. Foil Nails

Foiling is a technique that is used to elevate classic bold colours like deep reds and rich blues. It is a stunning option for short nails that are in need of a little bit of drama.

4. A Touch Of OTT


Speaking of being *extra*, nothing says “I am hyped about Diwali” more than literal bling on your nails. Metallic embellishments started out as a bridal must-have but can also be worn for the festive season.

5. Festive Mash-Up


Why settle for one nail art design when you can mash up a couple of them! Go for glitter on an accent finger and mix and match patterns on the rest. We especially love the soft swirls paired with glitter ones.

6. Velvet Nails

Crushed, embossed and plain velvet nails are so trendy right now. They have a luxe quality to them and will complement festive accessories beautifully.

7. Tortie With A Hint Of Green

Tortoiseshell nail design combines the high-glam quality of a glossy topcoat and the whimsy of a graphic pattern. Add a touch of green to it for a quick festive update.

8. Stacked Swoops

Swoop nail art is super easy to do at home and looks totally adorable when paired with a blush base. If you are looking for a minimal route but still add some drama to your festive manicure, stacked swoops will work just fine for that.

9. Water Marble

Marble nails are worth every penny you spend on getting them. It is a classic nail art design that never goes out of fashion. An especially fashionable version this season has an aquatic twist to it and we love it.

10. Line Work

Nature-inspired line work is perfect for lovers of artistic nail art designs. The gold and black combined gives the pattern lovely depth, it is indeed a piece of ‘art’!

11. Silver Ovals

Silver nail art designs are usually in for the party season but we want to usher them in a bit early. A gorgeous pick for oval nails, we love the polka-dotted boundary work on this one.
