11 Holiday Nail Ideas That Aren’t Red

The holiday season means you pull out all the stops when it comes to fashion and beauty. Sequins, faux fur, velvet, gemstones, ruffles, 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 your nails. So, we tell our manicurist to pick the brightest, most Christmas-y red she can find, and we stick with it all season long. Not in 2019! We’re giving you 11 new ideas to change up your holiday manicures, from rich tones like greens and deep reds to glitter and metallic to the trends like chrome, holographic, and nail art. Whether you’re DIY-ing your mani or picking up a new polish to take to your next salon visit, these are bound to get you tons of compliments.
