Whether you're a regular at your nail salon or have your at-home manicure setup on lock, doing your nails has become synonymous with a little self-care. There's something about having a fresh mani that just makes us feel so put-together—which is why we're making a point to polish up our paws ahead of the holiday season. Figuring out what to do with your nails, though, isn't always the easiest, and when you're standing in front of a wall of hundreds of different polishes (or getting inspired by a slew of nail ideas on Instagram), it's easy to get overwhelmed.
Here's what we'd do: With the holidays just around the corner (we can't believe it either!), why not stay on theme by trying out a Christmas nail art idea that's equal parts festive and cute? We found 16 different manis—from a candy cane–inspired set to a speckled snowflake design—that are sure to step up your holiday look this year. Pick your favorite, take a screenshot of it, and then practice your DIY skills (or if you're like me, simply stare in awe at how pretty they are).
