However, it is nail art that comes into its own at this time of year. There's no reason not to embrace shimmering metallics, sparkles, or a rainbow of jewel tones on your next manicure,

whether it's for a workplace Christmas party or a relaxing evening out with friends. We've picked together some of the best festive nail art ideas to inspire your party manicure, 

whether you're into lavish nail art or seeking for a more understated homage to the season ahead. In addition, we spoke with celebrity nail artist Kim Truong (aka KimKimNails),

who has painted the nails of celebrities ranging from Kim Kardashian to Dua Lipa, to find out which festive nail trends she thinks will be popular in the coming weeks.

A metallic French manicure, like these nails by Alexandra Teleki, is a terrific festive choice if you prefer a more subtle approach to nail art. 

"Silver is a way to step outside your comfort zone and is a great party season color, reminiscent of the trending chromes we've been seeing," Truong goes on to explain. 

"It mimics the glistening of snow and reflects the sparkle of holiday lights, making it a perfect complement to the winter season." Use Essie Nail Lacquer in Mystical Mist to recreate the look at home.
