Kara Reveals the Best Christmas Nails For Christmas 2019

With the days getting shorter and the weather getting colder everyone needs something to look forward to and luckily Christmas is just around the corner. Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year, excited children writing their lists for Santa, snow, cold nights wrapped up in front of the fire, the special evening spent trimming your Christmas tree and of course, Christmas parties! What do we need for all of those things? Perfect Christmas nails of course! Whether you want to stay simple and classy or go for snowman nail art, there’s something for everyone this season. Here are my favorite finds for this Christmas.

1. Beetles Gel Polish Berry Merlot Gift Box 

What Makes it Great

I love the color range in this pack, it’s got something to go with every outfit and covers so many of the trending colors for this winter, plus they would look fab with some temporary nail art on them too. The colors themselves are stunning with some beautiful deep purples and reds. The gel formula should last for at least 3 weeks meaning that your Christmas mani will last you all the way into New Year, nobody has time to keep redoing their nails, especially at Christmas time! The 9 toxin-free formula means that it’s safe to use and is low odor too.

Where It Could Be Improved

If you’re not used to doing gel nails it can take a few goes to get the hang of it, but after that, it’s super easy. Once you’ve got the basic kit – no more nail salons!

9.8Expert Score
The Final Verdict

Gorgeous colors and long-lasting shine. A perfect addition to your gel kit. The gift box means it would make a great present too.

2. ILNP Black Holographic Jelly Nail Polish

What Makes it Great

One of my favorite things about Christmas time is a walk in the snow on a clear night, kids throwing snowballs and making snow angels looking up at the stars. The sparkle in this holographic nail polish reminds me so much of that, I love it! It looks different in different lights and would look amazing with any outfit for a Christmas party, I love it for everyday wear too, who doesn’t feel better with a bit of sparkle now that it’s getting colder?!

It works great on its own, you can choose how many coats to use depending on how intense you want it to look, or for a completely different look, you can use it as a top coat over other shades. Because it is holographic and not glitter it is super easy to remove too. It’s cruelty-free, vegan and non-toxic while still using high-quality ingredients so you get the best of both worlds.

Where It Could Be Improved

It does need a few coats to not be too translucent, but if you apply a dark shade of polish first you get a gorgeous intense sparkle.

Gorgeous sparkle, easy to remove and perfect for day or nightwear. What’s not to love?!

3. VAGA Happy Holidays Nail Art Stamping Kit

What Makes it Great

I love this stamping kit! Some products I’ve used have been purely for Christmas and then can’t be used again for another year, but this set has loads of great designs that you can use throughout the year too. There are designs for Halloween, St. Patrick’s Day, New Year, and some that are cute enough that you’ll want to use all year round. I don’t know about you but often when something is just used once a year I put it away and then forget where I’ve put it. There’s no danger of that here, I’ll be using it all the time!

You just peel off the back of the template, paint it in whatever color you fancy, scrape off the excess and transfer it to your nail using a stamper. Then you just need to apply a topcoat. You can use it on top of any type of nail polish, but it’s especially good if you put it on gel nails, that way you can change the design when you want without having to redo your whole manicure. It’s a great way to get unique nails for the Holiday season!

Where It Could Be Improved

The stamps can be a bit messy to apply but if you apply a little liquid latex around the nail it will just peel off leaving nice clean edges

9.6Expert Score
The Final Verdict

There are so many cool designs that can be used all year round, and some small designs for little hands too.

4. KINGMAS Multi-color Christmas Nail Decals

What Makes it Great

These decals are fab! There are 24 sheets included each with around 30 decals on so will last you a long time. You just cut around the decal, soak it in water for 15-20 seconds using the included tweezers and transfer them to your nail. With so many cute designs there’s no end to the combinations you can go for. Perfect for little fingers too, your kids will be fighting you for them! 

Where It Could Be Improved

Can be a little fiddly at first, but with so many decals in the pack there are plenty for you to practice with.

5. Crystal Rhinestones

What Makes it Great

If you can’t bling it up at Christmas then when can you?! I love these rhinestones and you get so many in the pack. They’re ideal for nail art, you could keep it simple by just using one on an accent nail or really go for it and cover them all! They could be used for loads of other things too, decorating clothes, accessories or even art projects. My kids loved using them for crafts, I don’t normally let them use my things like this but when you get 1780 in a pack I think I can spare a few!

Where It Could Be Improved

You will need to get some nail glue to go with these gems, but you’ll need such a tiny amount for each rhinestone that it’ll last you ages!

9.7Expert Score
The Final Verdict

With so many different styles your biggest problem will be choosing what to do with them!
