The countdown to Christmas is officially on. The Christmas tree is up – after an afternoon spent untangling strings of lights that date back to 1999 – you’ve listened to Michael Buble’s Christmas album virtually on repeat and have consumed litres of gingerbread lattes. All that’s left now is to deck your nails with baubles, bells and coats of glitter before Santa shimmies down the chimney. Prepare to sleigh with these 12 festive AF Christmas nail designs.

On the first day of Christmas my Rawr beauty salon gave to me statement candy cane nails all red, white and bright. Upgrade your classic candy stripe mani with fine lines of glitter running through the stripes for added sparkle and sass.

On the second day of Christmas my Rawr beauty salon gave to me wow-worthy winter wonderland nails. Baby blue nail polish decorated with snowflakes, sparkling Christmas trees and a swipe of silver glitter that looks just like falling snow. It’s the only white Christmas we’re wishing for!

On the third day of Christmas my Rawr beauty salon gave to me glow-getting glitter nail tips. Get a dusting of gold, silver or bronze glitter across the tops of your nails to shine brighter than the star sat atop the Christmas tree.

On the fourth day of Christmas my Rawr beauty salon gave to me a string of Christmas tree lights that’s more lit than Santa’s workshop on Christmas Eve. Using delicate nail art pens our talented nail artists can add a necklace of multicoloured lights that mirror classic Christmas decs.

On the sixth day of Christmas my Rawr beauty salon gave to me a Mrs Claus mani because we all know who really runs Christmas. Switch up the classic pink and white style with a red and white version that’ll last all the way until New Year’s Day.

On the seventh day of Christmas my Rawr beauty salon gave to me to evergreen emerald nails that are totally trending right now. Emerald nails are as classic as mince pies and reruns of Love Actually. Opting for a jewelled green tone is a great way to dip your toes (and nails) in without having anything too elaborate or OTT. Basically, these nails are completely office-appropriate.

On the eighth day of Christmas my Rawr beauty salon gave to me flawless foil wraps for full-on festive funk. Foil wraps will pop brighter than the highlighter you put on your Christmas wishlist and give nails an instant glam-over.

On the ninth day of Christmas my Rawr beauty salon gave to me bejewelled baubles to deck my nails with blingy gems. Add a scattering of silver or gold gems on Quality Street-coloured nails for a show-stopping set.

On the tenth day of Christmas my Rawr beauty salon gave to me ‘made to be seen’ metallics. If you want something slightly more durable than shiny foils, pick a metallic pink, blue, red or green. You’ll still get all of the shine, just in a style that’s more low maintenance and less likely to chip.

On the eleventh day of Christmas my Rawr beauty salon gave to me matte mistletoe to nail that cheeky kiss. Matte red and green is a cool twist on a classic colourway. Full disclosure: we’re not entirely sure this nail design has supernatural love potion powers but we do know they’ll look super fierce.

On the twelth day of Christmas my Rawr beauty salon gave to me multicoloured glitter zig-zags on preened and polished green and red nails. Of course you’re going to mimic your wrapping paper – you need to remind everyone that you’re their main gift this Christmas, duh.
