Because baubles aren’t just for the Christmas tree!

Nails we’re sure even ice queen Elsa would approve of!

Because who doesn’t love candy canes at Christmas time?! Why not give your nails a SWEET makeover like this nail and makeup artist has?

Nails shinier than Rudolph’s nose! Sometimes you can’t beat a classic and it doesn’t get any more classic than a set of red nails so why not recreate this look at home for the festive season?

WOW! If your favourite Christmas film is The Grinch then you’ll love these holly jolly nails!

Can’t decide what you want? Take a leaf out of this Instagrammer’s book and paint each fingernail with a different Christmas design! Not got a steady hand? Take a look at these festive nail wraps (from £1.99) we found on Etsy to help you along the way!

A merrylicious Mickey and Minnie manicure that Disney lovers won’t be able to stop admiring!
