Hello lovelies, & happy Thursday! & happy December 1st! It is officially Christmas season, & the countdown to Christmas is on. I should probably get my shopping done before it gets too crazy, haha.
But — in honour of this brand new festive month, I thought some Christmas wrapping paper inspired nails would be a fun start. I love my Christmas pattern stamping plates this time of year because they have some many fun patterns you can use, which always makes me think of wrapping paper. While I’m dedicated to doing Glam Nails Challenge December, I also want to do some fun other Christmas manicures on my off days.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
- Base Coat: Essie Hard To Resist Glow & Shine
- Top Coat: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-chip Top Coat
- OPI Just Be-Claus
- ACO by Ardene Dancing Queen
- Essie No Place Like Chrome
- NailStuff.ca Clear Stamper
- Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate (no longer available)
Please excuse my ring finger which was a bit of a mess up, but that’s okay. I love the crisp silver over the sparkly base — OPI Just Be-Claus topped with ACO by Ardene Dancing Queen (which is a sparkly fuchsia pink). It definitely gives off the wrapping paper vibes I was hoping for.
& it also Christmas-y/Holiday vibes while not being out right blatant. & I like that as well.
What do you think about this stamped pattern nails? Do you enjoy the more subtle holiday designs like this, or do you like in your face Christmas vibes?
& let me know what other Holiday nail art looks you might want to see!

How did I not see this one earlier? This is STUNNING! Very traditional, but also very eye-catching since it’s not the standard, “run of the mill” Christmas red nail art design! (P.S. – I love your blog and the pretty nail inspiration you share with us!!!)
Thanks love! So glad you’re enjoying my posts! I’m definitely trying to go for some non-traditional colours for my Christmas designs.
