Holiday Nail Designs

The holidays are upon us and we want to maximize our fun with minimal nail art - everything from cute, simple designs to modern, festive, glam looks that are easy-to-do DIY nail art. You don't have to think too hard to create a design; even simple nail art appliques on natural nails or different colors on each nail can give you a holiday look!

Check out these easy DIY nail designs for the holidays: 

Holiday Stars  

Holiday star ornaments are perfect on your nails, just as Christmas tree ornaments are. Nifty (dusty silver), and Audacity (deep red) stars over nudes as well as Nifty and Prim on dark nails make good holiday ensembles.  


Products: Power Coat, Audacity, Prim, Nifty, and Top Gloss 

How to: 

  1. File/shape nails with a JINsoon High Performance Diamond Nail File 
  2. Apply JINsoon Honeysuckle + Primrose Cuticle Oil on each nail 
  3. Thoroughly push back the cuticle with a JINsoon HyperCare Diamond Cuticle Pusher + Reducer 
  4. Moisturize your hands with JINsoon Argan + Rose Hand Cream
  5. Clean the nail surface with non-acetone nail polish remover 
  6. Apply JINsoon Power Coat base coat 
  7. Apply two coats of JINsoon Audacity on 4 nails and Prim on your index finger
  8. Draw stars with JINsoon Nifty and Prim on dark nails, then Audacity and Nifty on the light nail using a stripe nail art brush 
  9. Finish with JINsoon Top Gloss 
  

Holiday Dots 

Dots with Baroque (gold), Nifty (dusty silver) and Spiffy (rose gold) on Heirloom (metallic blue) look like holiday ornamentation.  A satin matte finish makes for an interesting twist on a festive nail design. 

Products: Power Coat, Heirloom, Nifty, Spiffy, Baroque and Top Gloss top coat or Matte Maker matte top coat 


How to: 

  1. Apply JINsoon Power Coat base coat 
  2. Apply two coats of JINsoon Heirloom 
  3. Create big dots with JINsoon Nifty, Spiffy and Baroque using a big size dotting tool on the Heirloom field 
  4. Finish with JINsoon Top Gloss for a shiny finish or finish with JINsoon Matte Maker top coat for a satin matte finish 
 

Jin’s tip: 

Pour a sufficient amount of polish on a piece of foil to thoroughly submerge the dotting tool to create dots that are big, round and even. I love a matte finish on metallic nails. Some matte top coats are very streaky and dry, but JINsoon Matte Maker matte top coat gives an ultra-smooth satin-like matte finish. 

 

Gold Outlines 

A gold and black duo for nail design.  When gold is used to outline the black field, it is a sophisticated and luxurious holiday design - ideal for a holiday party.

Floating French

This is a unique and easy take on a French manicure.  Simply apply a festive base (Absolute Glitz) and paint a black (Absolute Black) French line slightly above and parallel to the nail tip. The contrast makes the nail look pop and the look is oh so glam!
