The holidays are, uh, pretty stressful. Unless you’re planning to stay inside and see literally nobody except your kids and spouse all month (lucky you), you’ll probably have to make at least one public appearance at a Christmas party or family dinner, meaning you’ll have to wash your hair, put on non-yoga pants, and, you know, try.
Which is why we’re really into the idea of holiday-themed nails. Because even if you throw your hair into a topknot and barely manage to swipe concealer under your eyes before the doorbell rings, you’ll still feel festive and put together. Holiday nail art is like the Christmas sweater for your hands. So to get you in the spirit, we rounded up our ten favorite Christmas nail designs and inspo pics that literally anyone—even a nail newb—can try on themselves. Scroll down to see our favorites, and then whip out your nail polish tonight. Your hands will thank you for it.
