The holiday season means you pull out all the stops when it comes to fashion and beauty. Pearls, faux fur, velvet, and more adorn all of our clothes this season, and our beauty routines switch from tinted moisturizer and lip balm to red lips and winged eyeliner. However, every year, we tend to forget about our nails, so we pick the brightest, most Christmas-y red we can find and stick with it all season long. Not this year, though! Holiday nail ideas are getting a major upgrade. 

We’re giving you 20 new ideas to change up your holiday manicures, from jewel tones like teals and deep blues to glitter and metallic to the trends like Barbie pink, glazed, and ombre.
