Among those is the implementation of beautiful nail art to celebrate that time of the year, with a wide variety of designs and themes incorporated into the seasonal look.
One nice thing about Christmas, contrary to Halloween, the other major holiday, is it's celebrated, by some, for about a month, whereas most people celebrate Halloween only on the specific day; although some do put out lights and yard decorations ahead of time.
What that does for nail art is provide numerous opportunities to create fun and unique Christmas themes for the nails during the season.

Nails with Different Christmas Design on Each One
For those who may want to only do one attempt at designing a Christmas theme for your nails, here is a great one if you like to put together a variety of designs, as the woman below did.
This will also work of course if you want to try different designs throughout the Christmas season, as it's virtually unlimited as to the themes behind this seasonal art.
It's a pretty nice bunch of nails below, with the red and white striped candy cane, Christmas tree, Santa head and cute wreath. I like the way the colors were dispersed so it didn't look too blotchy with one color. That's especially true with the two middle nails separating the red of the outer nails.
The white Santa beard and fur on the hat helps offset the red of Santa's hat being next to the red foundation of the wreath. It's something to keep in mind when designing your Christmas nails.
Snowman and Snow Nail Art
What I really like about this nail art is the way the blue foundation is lit up by the falling snow. It's such a wonderful and whimsical effect, celebrating what many of us love about the Christmas season.
Add to that the cute snowman and you have an awesome set of nails anyone would be proud to wear. The way the snow is designed beneath the snowman really enhances the look of the nail.
