Dip Into the Holidays With Christmas Nails

4 min read

Oh, what fun it is to ride high in the last month of the year with festive holiday nails! And we're putting radiant red front and center on your holiday dip nail inspiration. From candy canes to Christmas elves, we've rounded up our top picks for your next in-person or in-Zoom holiday party.

1. Dreaming-of-a-white-Christmas dip nails

 

White Christmas Nails

Holidays will surely be merry and bright with a sweet-looking candy cane and a glistening Christmas tree on your nails. Recreate this magical scenery with dip powder colors CL51, GL33, and French White. Use a nail tape to design the candy lines and the minimalist tree. Then finish the Christmas look with an itty-bitty golden star. Watch the full tutorial here and gift yourself a dip mani session.


2. Merry Multi-finish dip powder nails

Multi-finish Christmas Nails

Can't decide which texture or finish to go for on your next dip manicure? Then this multi-finish, monochrome look is just the perfect solution for you. It's a merry mix of opaque red, glittery red, matte red, and glossy red. Did we say red? We meant Shiraz red—the shade you can achieve with dip nail color CL56.

Pro Dip Tip: To get a matte finish, skip the sealer! Learn how to apply matte nails here.


3. Cozy Christmas dip mani

Sweater Christmas Nails

For next-level holiday nails, experiment with a 3D dip nail art like on the index finger above. It's appropriate  for sweater weather and easy to nail with dip powder colors NA27 and NA19. Simply use a nail art brush to create the texture of the 3D sweater—the dots, the lines, and the curves. Watch the full tutorial here and embrace the coziness and comfort of holiday hygge nails. 


4. Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer dip manicure

Rudolph Christmas Nails

This dip nail design is nothing to sneeze at. And if Santa ever saw it, he would even say it glows. It features dip nail colors NA23 from the Naturale collection and GL12, GL31 from the Glitter collection. With dip nails so bright, you'll sleigh the holiday any night. That's why these acrylic Christmas nails will go down in history as one of our favorites.

The Elf Mani

"Took me almost 4hrs, that included removing the previous set. But I'm very happy with how they came out. It's only my 4th time dipping," Toni said. 

Well, we say, those were some hours well spent. Because we're in love with the stunning result! 

Toni's Pro Dip Tip: "I dipped the red part and then used an eyeshadow brush to put the green on."

If you want to recreate this look, elf your nails using dip powder colors GL37 and GL24.
