There is nothing that will get you right into the Christmas spirit quite like a fresh set of nails. There is something truly special about going to the salon and having your autumn nail art replaced with a Christmas pattern, and it is guaranteed to get you feeling festive. 

21 Festive White Christmas Nails Perfect for the Holiday Season

One of the best base colors for a set of Christmas nails is white. White represents so many different things, from the purity of the Virgin Mary to the crisp fall of the first snow in winter. On top of that, it really just is a brilliant color.

So, if you are looking for the perfect inspiration for your festive white Christmas nails, you are in the right place. Keep on reading for 20+ festive white Christmas nail designs that are perfect for the holiday season! 

1. White And Nude

The first design that we would recommend is this classy white and nude design. There is something about a nude and white nail combination that makes it look really fancy, and this design is even more special because of the Christmas inspiration behind it. 

If you want a set of nails that will see you through the holiday season into winter, then this set is perfect. It has a Christmas design without being too Christmassy, and that is why we love this nail design so much!

2. White And Silver

Another wonderful color combination for Christmas nails is white and silver. This color combination is perfect for the winter months, and a great option if you have lots of parties and functions over the festive period. 

We love this nail design because it doesn’t scream Christmas when you first see it. These nails could easily be Christmas nails, but you could really have them at any other time of the year too.

So, they are a perfect choice if you want Christmas nails, but don’t want to have your nails re-done immediately after the holiday season.

Gold is a brilliant color to include in your festive nails as it has connections to the nativity in the Bible. Gold is a truly stunning color, and it perfectly contrasts the simplicity of the white base color on your nails.

If you have a lot of events booked over the festive period and don’t want your nails to clash with your outfit, then a French polish is a brilliant choice.

There isn’t an outfit out there that doesn’t go with a classic French polish, which is why we would always recommend it for the holiday season! 

6. White And Red
