This Christmas season is a time to go all out, whether it’s putting on the new shirt, you saw from Princess Polly, putting on your cutest high heels, or making unique Christmas acrylic nails 2021.
Although Christmas acrylic nails (and holiday nails in general) look very simple, there are a lot of designs and changes. I find that the nail art trend for Christmas/holidays changes every year. When I update this article, I am always amazed at how different this year’s trends are.
There are many different trends in popular Christmas nail art, most of which are reflected in festive colors. You can’t go wrong with Christmas nails. But if you want to try some new fashions like me, you should get some great ideas from this article.
Below are my favorite Christmas nail art trends and inspiration photos for each direction!
Christmas Nail Trends 2021
Plaid nail design: Plaid nails are trendy now, and not only at Christmas. However, if you are going to make Christmas acrylic nails, you should at least consider a checkered pattern nail. You can make lattice nails of any color.
Snowflake nails: In the winter of 2021-2022, Snowflake will be huge. I like the more subtle snowflake accents (think soft snowflakes on white nude nails). If you want your nails to feel wintery, you can’t go wrong with adding a piece of snowflakes.
Candy cane nails: Although candy cane nails were trendy in Christmas nails last year, this trend has now come back. I suggest you make 1-2 accent nails in the candy cane design. I like pink/white/nude dresses, but I also like the bold red/white candy cane Christmas manicure.
Sweater nails: This winter, sweater nail is very popular, and it is easy to add the characteristics of sweater armor to Christmas acrylic nails. If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of designing sweater nails, you can also buy press nails.
Almond nails: This year, almond nails are the most popular. Whether your nails are acrylic, dipped with nail tips, or just natural long nails (I am jealous in this case), I suggest you try soft almond-shaped ones.
Intricate Christmas nail designs: Intricate designs are trendy now. From painting decorations and Christmas trees on nails to creating more abstract red and white holiday designs, you will see a lot of very nervous paintings this year. Take a look at the inspiration photos below – I have included a lot of exciting and complicated holiday designs for 2021!
Of course, simple red and maroon nails are also popular. I have listed some different pure reds below for inspiration!
There are many different ways to achieve these trends (regular nail polish, gel, dipping, acrylic, etc.), and there are various ways you can quickly complete the design on these nails.
