5 mani ideas to get you set for Christmas and New Years.

There is nothing worse than walking into a salon and having to rush into deciding a nail design. Even though this time of year means putting your feet up and relaxing with your family, the build up to Christmas day and New Years can be overly hectic. To make things easier, we have chosen 5 on trend mani designs you need to try this winter both at home and in the salon.

3D for 2020.

Painting each nail with a base coat before adding a 3D nail design over the top, is the step you needed to take in upgrading your nail game. For a frosty look, add 3D snowflakes to your nails before finishing with a clear top coat to maintain your nails longevity. Alternatively, try out the new 3D cable knit nails design, also shown on this nail inspiration image.

French manicure, with a twist.

This minimalistic nail trend is exactly what you need to carry you through to the new year. The traditional French manicure has simply been forgotten, as we are experimenting now more than ever with colour. This bottle green tone compliments gold jewellery, and will go with all neutral outfits. You have to try it!

Cardi B called; she wants her nail technician back.

There is nothing more festive then too much glitz and glam. If you’re wanting to sparkle this winter, adding crystals to your nails will achieve exactly that. Oh and they will be perfect for New Year’s too!

Grinch inspired nails.

A holiday favourite film, which has also influenced Kylie Jenner’s new Christmas makeup launch. The Grinch has proven to be popular this year in the beauty industry, so why not try out this nail art design. There is nothing dull about these nails.

Pretty in blue.

A cool, icy blue is totally fitting and on trend for 2020. Keep it simple by refraining from extravagant nail art this winter. If you want to add a subtle design to your nails, focus on only the ring fingers. They will be adequate for every occasion, even if that does include lounging indoors in a lockdown.

To professionally recreate these nail designs, we have chosen some of the most popular and trusted nail salon’s in Southampton. These include

  • Studio 29
  • Ruby’s Nails & Beauy
  • Sky nails & beauty
