Festive Holiday Manicure Ideas

December 30 2018

We’ve all heard it before, but it bears repeating: a creative manicure can not only improve your outfit, but your mood as well! Here at Salon D’Artiste, we know there’s no time like the present to experiment with the latest nail trends. As you’re gearing up for your holiday parties, consider pairing that perfect outfit with a set of perfectly polished nails. Read on for a few of the holiday trends we’re seeing right now, then come see us for your own holiday polish!

Negative space half-moons. This delectable vintage style is making a comeback this holiday season. With its grown-up approach to simplistic glamour, you can’t go wrong with the negative space trend. Simply choose a polish color that compliments your outfit and leave the moons devoid of any color.  

Rose gold half-moons. Take the negative space half-moon trend a bit further by filling in your moons with a shade of rose gold. This adds a high-end effect perfect for those glitzy holiday parties and GNOs you’re bound to have on your calendar this month. 

Iridescent glitter. A nude base with a soft pink or lavender glitter overlay can be both understated and luxe. The mix of glitter will dress up the neutral polish underneath without looking over the top. 

Glitter ombre. If all over glitter isn’t your style, dip a toe (or finger!) in the shimmer trend without fully committing by choosing this ombre instead. Think of it as a trendy twist to the old standby- the French manicure. This trend also works well when you need to fix up your tips in a quick pinch! Just add some glitter to the tips and drag down toward the nail bed to achieve the ombre effect while also erasing any nicks or chips in your polish.

Matte French tips. While the traditional pink and white French manicure has all but fallen by the wayside, you can take the pattern and make it your own by switching up the color scheme for a modern look. Try pairing a deep metallic green with a matte black tip for a look with high contrast and a touch of rock-n-roll.
