On the tenth day of Christmas, my manicurist gave to me, 10 painted nails!

OK, maybe you don’t need to be gifted the actual nails — unless acrylics are your style — but holiday season is party season and your nails need to fit the bill!

We want you ripping open those gifts in manicured style, so take a look through our holiday nail art gallery and ensure that your fingertips are fit to party. Fun holiday fingernails are a fun conversation starter and a perfect diversion to distract from the fact that you’ve already consumed a plate of holiday cookies. 

Don’t let your manicure get caught slipping while you’re gripping your egg nog! Check out some of our favorite holiday nail designs below, and then get your design in mind.
