Best Christmas Nail Polish

If you want to feel Christmassy from head to toe, you gotta do what you gotta do, which is, in this case, put on some nice Christmas nail polish.

Whether Christmas nail polish means to you an elegant, classy, sparkly bright red, or something with a bit more fun and snowflakes on the side, Christmas nail polish is a great way to let everybody know you’re getting in the mood of the most wonderful time of the year.

What are the options?

Some like elegant, classic nail polish and only want some sparkle on it for the special occasion. No worries, as the market gives you plenty of options. You can never go wrong with a bright red on your nails for Christmas, but some golden details may do the tricks just as well, right?

When you want to go with a young, fresh look, don’t hesitate to give it a try with a snowflake nail polish or with some sparkly stars in it. You can definitely find all sorts of colors too.

If none of the above does the tricks for you, no worries, there’s hope! You can always get some temple stamps, or some 3D stickers to get the Christmas mode on.

No matter how you put it, it’s impossible not to find a nail polish that rocks your boat this Christmas. After all, there’s nobody stopping you from painting each one of them differently until you get to decide J

What we like most

For those of you who like the classy style with just a pinch of sparkles on the side, a nice option for this Christmas would be the China Glaze Nail Lacquer, Luxe and Lush, 0.5 Fluid Ounce.

The nail lacquer is full of nice glittery sparkles that turn you regular nail polish into a festive, yet not too shiny style.

The nail lacquer lasts for long and doesn’t chip off. It has a non-thickening formula and you don’t need a thinner for best results. It’s flexible and looks well even after a while. It dries fast and some may even want to apply 3 coats for a more obvious sparkle.

Subtle and classy, the nail lacquer may be the final touch for your many/Pedy this Christmas.

The high gloss finish looks amazing on any nails and the color lacquer has a great consistency.


Whether you’re planning to use it on your clear nails or to cover colored nail polish, the Orly Nail Lacquer, Tinsel is a fun and sparkly option for the Christmas.

The combination of red balls and green lines looks very nice and festive, as the nail polish is clear. The nail polish not only looks nice, but it also nourishes and protects your nails as it includes vitamins E, A and B5.

If you like to add just a bit of red sparkle on your nails for Christmas, give it a go with the Orly Polish Flash Glam Fx R.i.p #40462.

The nail polish is opaque in two coats and you may want to use only one coat in some cases. It’s full of orange glitter in sheer black base, but it manages to give a festive, yet subtle appearance to your nails.

You may not need more than 5 minutes to apply it, but you’re definitely going to need more than 5 to take it off because of all that glitter. Either way, the nail polish is worth to try on Christmas.


When you don’t want to just look nice, but also feel the Christmas fragrances around you, a very good option would be the Candy Cane Crush – Scented Holiday Polish by KBShimmer.

The top coat is filled with red and white hex glitters that are variously sized, giving a pretty and festive look to your nails. The polish is scented with vanilla peppermint so you’re going to have the nice mint scent around you all day long.

The polish doesn’t have a strong smell, but a rather soft and subtle scent. It’s going to look great over a pink polish, but also amazing on a white nail polish on Christmas. For best results, you should only apply one coat.

The flat brush allows you an easy application and you should shake it before use.

As the nail polish contains 2/3 white glitter and 1/3 red glitter, it’s possible that you don’t get large red glitters on each nail, but this is going to make the look more interesting. The two stainless steel balls are going to shake a bit the things inside, which is always great on a nail polish.

The nail polish is full of snow and it looks best if you apply it in 3 coats. Its flat brush helps you better apply it and get all the snowflakes you can.

The light blue jelly sparkles with light blue holo glitter looks amazing, whereas the white snowflake glitter completes the looks.

As the snowflakes are large and heavier, you may need to apply it several times on some nails. Don’t forget to give the bottle a good shake before applying it, turning it upside down for 10 minutes. This is going to help the snowflakes move toward the top of the bottle.
