My Top 10 Favourite Christmas Nail Designs on Instagram

Instagram is my first love, it’s the place where I begun my nail/art journey, it’s the place that inspired me to set up this very blog, but most of all it’s the place where I found lots of lovely, like-minded people who are extremely talented and inspire me every single day. Today I thought I could share the love, and show you my top 10 favourite Christmas nail designs created by some of these wonderful, talented people. Some of which I have been following for years, some of which are fairly new to my feed…

In no particular order whatsoever, here are some of the designs I’ve been loving so far this year:


Stephanie is mega talented, her nail art is absolutely incredible. Her feed is full of colour, joy and inspiration.

This super fun bright Pusheen design is enough to get anybody into the festive spirit!

Give Stephanie a follow here: @jeealee


Kim does some beautiful swatches as well as nail art, and this exploding Christmas Cracker is just the tip of the iceberg!

You can find more of her work here: @whipsternails


I’ve followed Debbie’s work for years now, she always creates the most gorgeous designs with matching knitwear too! Her feed is bursting with wonderful stamping designs.

Go give her a cheeky follow on Instagram and over on her blog too:


Look at these cute little penguins! Iva posts incredibly stylish and beautiful swatches and designs.

Here is another lady who always posts the best nail art and swatches! This Santa design by Kirsty is just one of many Christmas Designs on her feed to inspire you.

Lyndsey has such lovely long nails! I have total nail envy over here! I love how detailed this Snowy Christmas Scene is, complete with sparkle.

Give her a follow on Instagram here: @nailpixi and also check out her blog:


Elsa not only has one of the most iconic names of all time, but also the most iconic nail art of all time!

This is just one example of the amazing work created by her, but don’t just take my word for it - go see for yourselves: @elsibiris26


Here is another lady that I have been following for the longest time, I was drawn to her exquisite nail art right from the start! I love that Gemma now has her very own Youtube channel, and also treats us to Instagram Live Nail Art Sessions.

I love how simple yet striking this festive mani is! Maria has an eye for elegant nail designs but also for perfect swatch photos, you can go check out her fab feed using this link here: @nailandcreate


There are so many wonderful things I could say about Chrissie, of course I had to include her in this post! She has been my friend right from the start of my Instagram/Blog journey, and I’m very lucky to have her in my virtual world.

Her nail art is always to perfection, she is the Queen of nail wraps, and just look at those nails! I’m feeling green with envy again…

You absolutely must go follow her over on Instagram: @plus10kapow and have a read through her blog as well:

That concludes my shoutout-y post, I genuinely love following these ladies, if I haven’t included you here it doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy your work, but I thought that limiting to 10 designs would be sensible as we could otherwise be here for weeks…

Thank you so much for reading, see you tomorrow!

Love, Leanne Xx
