Christmas Nail Art

Christmas nail art is a fun thing to do throughout December, whether you go full Christmas Santas and all or if you stay to festive sparkle, there are plenty of ways to get your nails ready for the festive season.

I like to use a mixture of Barry M and Ciaté London nail varnishes but realistically if you invest in a good base coat and top coat then you can use any nail varnish you want (no matter what the price is).

There are so many types of designs you can go for, including cheating and going for fake nails and nail wraps.

Here are my favourite 5 nail designs from Pinterest that I will be using on myself and my family this Christmas.

My 3 Go to Nails on a Budget

I have always had a love hate relationship with my nails, I love them when they’re long, they hate to grow.

I love taking time to make my hands look pretty, but sometimes my nails don’t want to cooperate, so I bring in the ol’ false nails.

About 3 years ago I decided to take the plunge and try some false nails, now rule 1 – if you want your natural nails to be healthy after using false nails then take the time to find good quality nails – don’t go for the £1 sets from Primark, they’re pretty but not for the long run!

So if you’re new to this (like I was), here is a list of products I use that DO NOT hurt your real nails if they’re used properly.

Okay so here are my top three brands that I use on a two-weekly basis.

Elegant Touch
These are the first express press on nails I tried, and I LOVE them!Elegant Touch more commonly do glue on nails and those paired with the big Elegant Touch glue is also a good way to go.

ImPress
These are the newest discovery for me, sold in Superdrug I couldn’t help but pick up a few sets!

Nailene
These nails are the first type I used, glued on with the Elegant Touch nail glue.

Also top tip, invest in a good nail strengthener/repairer to prep your nails before the false ones go on to make sure that they are as strong as ever!
