  • The winter season is the perfect time to try new holiday nail designs.
  • Your manicure can span beyond the basic Christmas-themed red and green designs — try a cozy cashmere design or something bold and sparkly.
  • Regardless of length and color, there's plenty of holiday nail-art ideas to choose from.

For beauty enthusiasts, one of the best things about the holidays is dressing up. However, the star of the show is the accompanying nail art. But just because you're partial to festive manicures doesn't necessarily mean you prefer tinsel designs, ugly-sweater-inspired nails, or red and green colors. In fact, we're here to prove that holiday nail art doesn't have to be cheesy to be cute. We're in a new age of creativity led by stellar nail technicians. Holiday nails can range anywhere from subtle candy-cane swirls to ombré polish with mistletoe tips.

If you want to keep it classy, graphic lines and glitter finishes are the way to go. If you're looking to step it up a notch, cashmere and crystal nails are as stylish as they are cool. Winter nail art is beyond Christmas or Hanukkah. Don't be afraid to experiment with the entire cozy aesthetic of the season.

Ahead, we've rounded up the chicest holiday manicures that will have you celebrating tastefully.
