Once Thanksgiving hits and the holidays roll around, the general messaging seems to be that more is more—but that’s not always true, especially when it comes to your nails. While the phrase “Christmas nails” may bring to mind sculpted Santas, over the top glitter, and red and green everything, there’s actually plenty of subtle options available to show your spirit in style. The coolest holiday nail art features twists on the nail trends we’ve been obsessed with all fall—think French manicures, negative space, and subtle sparkle—so nothing looks too out-of-place when you’re back at the office post-New Year’s. So make some cocoa, queue up A Christmas Prince, and get ready to screenshot our favorite looks.
