6 winter nail trends to try this festive season

December is always one of the busiest months in a salon. Ask any nail tech you know - they go home with clothes & faces covered in glitter every day of the festive season!

Nails have become a style staple for most females (and males). They can be a creative way to accessorise or simply add a pop of colour to an everyday work outfit.

At LH Beauty in Holywood, owner Louise and her team offer an array of bespoke glittery nail art options in every colour imaginable, so no two sets of nails are ever the same.

Just like fashion collections, nail trends change from season to season – but come Christmas, there are some seriously merry styles, both classic and contemporary options, to choose from.

LH Beauty are on hand to help us nail these six festive finger trends.

1. The glitter bomb


A personal favourite at LH Beauty - we just don’t think you can ever have too much glitter! And with 30 colours of glitter to choose from, you’re guaranteed to find one to match your favourite Christmas party dress.

2. The pick 'n' mix


For some reason picking the colour of our manicure seems to be one of the hardest of life’s decisions. So for the indecisive manicure addict amongst us, the pick 'n' mix option is perfect. Combining as many glitter nail art options as you desire the possibilities are endless – whether you want solid glitter, stripes, spots or the classic fade – the choice is yours.

3. The glitter cuff


These little twinkling half-moons are a great way to get the most out of your Christmas manicure. Bio Sculpture Gel manicures generally last for 3-4 weeks with no chipping,so as you can imagine you can really notice your nails growing during this time. Simply use a nail polish that matches your glitter cuff to fill in the regrowth around your cuticle area et voila! A long lasting, festive option for ladies with busy social schedules.

4. The glitter fade


This is probably our most popular glitter option. Normally applied over reds or berry tones at this time of the year on one or two nails, it’s perfectly suited to ladies who just want a little sparkly, something extra!

5. The French manicure


A classic that will never go out of style, no matter what time of the year. A clean, crisp white over a healthy, pink nail bed - we love this sharp HD finish. These nails won’t clash with any colours or outfits in your wardrobe and this versatility is what makes them so popular at this time of year. And if Santa brings you something big and sparkly under the tree, your hands are picture perfect for the all-important social media update!

6. The timeless rouge mani


Is this the ultimate Christmas classic? We couldn’t go without mentioning the timeless rouge manicure. Santa suit red is always a firm favourite & definitely one of the simplest & chicest options.
