5 Dazzling nail art ideas for the festive season

With the festive season in full swing, there is excitement in the air. Needless to say, this trickles down to our attire as well. This is also that time when you can bring on the ingenious streak to jazz up the nails with jewels, crystals, sparks and glitters.  

Here are a few nail art ideas to try this season. We have picked designs that are classy and trendy yet easy for beginners as well.

Good to know:

For best results, prepare some days in advance. Apply nail cream (or cuticle oil) and hand cream to provide proper moisturising. This way, the nails become strong and ready to hold the colour, glue, and other embellishments. Chipping and breakage due to brittleness can be avoided by using hand and nail products regularly.

White and blue nails with embellishments

The look:

Gold jewellery holds a prominent place with ethnic wear during this season. How about extending the same aesthetic to the nails as well! The luxurious hands of the model display rhinestone overlay on blue French manicured nails.

How to achieve it:

  • Step 1: Paint your nail with an even coat of white enamel.
  • Step 2: Once dry, draw a thin circular stroke of gold or yellow nail paint at the bottom.
  • Step 3: Next, let the tips be enhanced with a beautiful sparkly blue hue.
  • Step 4: Once it is dry, apply nail glue at the centre and arrange the rhinestones and other few gold plated embellishments. You can use a dotting pen for proper placement. Allow total drying of paint, glue and topcoat for the nail art to last for long.

Tip: If this seems too daunting, you can also stick bindis.

Gold beads/balls on wine nails 


The look:

Gold plated tiny balls/beads arranged beautifully on wine coloured nails is the ideal match for festive clothing.

How to achieve it:

  • Step 1: Begin with applying a base coat on the nails. Pick your favourite bright or dark-hued enamel. Something like wine colour would be ideal as it will highlight the gold detailing well.  
  • Step 2: Once completely dried, take a gold enamel and draw a filigree inspired patterns of your choice fingernail.  It is best to opt for a super thin brush for the same.
  • Step 3: Next, arrange tiny gold beads on the other nails near the cuticle area in a manner that catches your fancy.
  • Step 4: Lastly, a shiny clear topcoat will seal all your art intact and come through the entire season.

Multi-hued polka dots

The look:

Who does not love polka dots! Add a touch of retro to your look with this nail art. This is more suited for a fusion attire or a heavy embroidered one. 

How to achieve it: 

  • Step 1: Along with white, pick from an array of happy bright colours such as yellow, pink, purple and orange.
  • Step 2: Now the fun begins, remember the freestyle drawing in school days? Paint the different nails with your choice of hue.
  • Step 3: Once dry, take the other enamels and create tiny little dots on top of it with a super thin brush. There is no hard and fast rule here, play around with different colours and watch the magic unfold. 

Green and yellow rhinestone-studded nail pattern

 The look:

Make a statement with a striking combination of royal dark green and yellow. Add in the shimmer and rhinestones for a wow effect. 

How to achieve it:

  • Step 1: Pick matte nail enamel in the shade close to bottle green.
  • Step 2: Sprinkle generous glitter in the same shade near the nail tips. Just apply a topcoat, scoop the glitter with a cuticle pusher on top and put on top. Tap off any excess.
  • Step 3: Once both the colour and shimmer dry completely, stick colourful rhinestones with the help of nail glue or foil glue in required patterns. Use dots in a much lighter colour, say white or grey, to highlight the rhinestones.
  • Step 4: Finish the design with sleek lines of yellow.

Golden nail art 

The look:

Bring in a touch of glamour with metallic gold. Embed it with diamond studs and gold shimmer. 

How to achieve it: 

  • Step 1: Apply a base coat of gold enamel on all of your nails.
  • Step 2: For the gold shimmer, add a topcoat, scoop the glitter with a cuticle pusher and pour over the nail. Tap it to remove excess and use a brush to flatten the embellishment.
  • Step 3: Repeat the same with the rhinestones, the only difference is that you will have to use a dotting tool to put the studs in place. 

Go ahead and flaunt those dazzling nails! 

Take a pick from our wide range of nail enamels.
