Long, acrylic nails painted with holographic polish or covered in holiday-inspired motifs are pretty extra, but being extra is what the holiday season is all about. If you’re trying to get on that level, keep scrolling for some major inspiration. We’ve rounded up our favorite festive acrylic nail looks on the ’gram, featuring snowflakes, the Grinch, lots of glitter and more. 

Holographic Snowflake Nails

With a holographic base and an ornate snowflake design, you’ll want to wear this nail art look from now through New Year’s Eve. 

Candy Stripe Nails

If candy cane nails are too literal for you, go for a curvy stripe against a negative space white background like @nailartbyqueenie did with this look. The gold embellishments add an elegant yet festive element.

Grinch Nails 

Sorry Santa, Grinch nail art is just too fun to pass up. An acrylic base gives you or your nail artist plenty of space to work with when creating a likeness of everyone’s favorite Christmas-stealing character.

Sweater Weather Nails

Cozy up with sweater-inspired nails like these. We love how in addition to knit-textured finishes, nail artist @kimberleycassandra incorporated an argyle design on an accent nail. 

Tic Tac Snow Nails

Snowflakes, icicles, gold glitter, a festive plaid print and a sweet treat? Yup, the holiday gang’s all here on this mani.

Gold Star Nails 

The top of your tree isn’t the only place stars belong during the holidays. Star nail art, as seen here, in colors like green and gold are perfect for the season. Add another festive motif like holly and you’ll be radiating holiday spirit.
