For eleven months of the year, I’m an all-black-everything kinda girl, but as soon as December rolls around I have an incessant need to put glitter on everything. If you don’t share this sickness (it really is a sickness) or ire on the side of understated – regardless what month it is – then I assure you, embracing sparkle doesn’t have to be maximalist. We’ve found a bunch of nail art designs that are equal measures festive and wearable – even if you’re a minimalist.
An accent nail (usually on your ring finger) can spruce up even the simplest of manicures – try a glitter or metallic polish in a similar shade to keep it subtle – or add some simple detail at the tip or cuticle, such as a metallic half-moon or glitter dot.
