Chic Holiday Manicure Ideas

A cute, creative manicure can go a long way toward improving your outfit and your attitude, and we here at Ama Ti Salon and Spa know there’s no time like the present to experiment with the latest nail trends. As you’re getting ready for your holiday events, consider pairing that perfect outfit with a set of perfectly polished nails. Read on for a few chic manicure ideas we’ve seen lately, then come visit us to make it your own!

Just the tips. This new trend is certainly eye-catching, and we like how simplistically elegant it looks. Choose a polish that matches your outfit, and then paint just the tips in a crescent pattern. The rest of the nail will be a soft neutral, making those tips really pop!  

Rose gold half-moons. Pair two separate trends- the negative space half-moon trend and the anything rose gold trend- by filling in your moons with a shade of rose gold. This adds a high-end effect perfect for those glitzy holiday parties and GNOs you’re bound to have on your calendar this month. Don’t forget to paint your tips as well! We like neutral shades of pink but virtually anything goes.

Iridescent glitter. A red or green base with a gold glitter overlay can be both understated and luxe. The pop of glitter will dress up the polish underneath without looking too over the top. 

Glitter ombre. If all over glitter isn’t your style, dip a toe (or finger!) in the shimmer trend without fully committing by choosing this ombre instead. Think of it as a trendy twist to the old standby- the French manicure. This trend also works well when you need to fix up your tips in a quick pinch! Just add some glitter to the tips and drag down toward the nail bed to achieve the ombre effect while also erasing any nicks or chips in your polish.

Matte French tips. While the traditional pink and white French manicure has all but fallen by the wayside, you can take the pattern and make it your own by switching up the color scheme for a modern look. Try pairing a gunmetal gray with matte red tips for a look with high contrast and a touch of rock-n-roll.

No matter which style you choose, the professional technicians at Ama Ti Salon are here help you achieve the beautiful nails that will turn heads this holiday season. With two locations to serve you - Norristown and Bryn Mawr - we’re never too far away. Book an appointment at either location online, or download our free mobile app from iTunes, or Google Play.
