An at-home holiday doesn’t have to be void of festive cheer. Netflix has Christmas movies aplenty, but if you’re still feeling kinda Grinch-y about the absence of an IRL bartender serving you an overpriced cranberry vodka, it might be time to break out the glitter.
That doesn’t require digging into your wardrobe for something heavy with sequins (or even changing out of jogging bottoms). All you need is a sparkly nail polish and a can-do attitude to test drive this season’s most festive nail-art trend: snowflakes. Yes, like velvet nails, snowflake designs are everywhere right now, ranging from chic and minimalist with pinks and nudes to bright red and studded with crystals. To find your favourite one — and source this weekend’s DIY project — scroll through the gallery, ahead.
If you’re comfortable making a salon appointment, consider upgrading your routine dip-powder manicure with a snowflake accent, like this look styled on influencer Liz Heart.
This asymmetrical design, by Letty of Austin’s The W Nail Bar, includes five different shades from OPI’s new sparkle-filled holiday polish collection.
Consider a glossy candy-apple red base topped with crisp, white snowflakes, like this festive design sourced from Instagram artist Nails by TT.
Nail tech Alina proves that rose-gold glitter polish is always a good idea.
There’s something about a gently-squared tip — like UK-based manicurist Bryony Howell’s take, inspired by artist Cole Ava — that transforms a snowflake accent design from cutesy to chic.Credit: Source
