One of the best parts about the holiday season is all of the opportunities to dress up. From Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Year’s Eve, there’s always a chance to rock a festive outfit. But no look is complete without the perfect holiday nail color. Over here we’re big on trying out new trends, so we’ve rounded up seven unique holiday nail colors to try this season.

Mocha Brown 

Draw a little inspiration from your favorite holiday flavor with a warm mocha mani. OPI Nail Lacquer ($11) in the shade Squeaker of the House is the perfect chocolaty shade. We’re loving the major hot cocoa vibes.

Almost Black

This holiday season, try a twist on the classic black nail by opting for an “almost black” shade. OPI Nail Lacquer ($11) in the shade Lincoln Park After Dark has undertones of purple and red that are perfect for the holidays.

Barely There Metallics

A simple metallic design over plain nails makes for the easiest mani ever. Try using the Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Pen ($6) in silver to draw dainty lines on your nails. Finish it off with a clear top coat for added shine.

Icy Blue

Cold weather got you feeling like Elsa from Frozen? Channel your inner snow queen with an icy blue manicure. Try one of Essie’s Find Me an Oasis ($9) for the perfect winter blue.

Pearly Nude

Nude nails are a classic no matter what time of year. For a festive twist, try a shade with a bit of pearly sheen. Butter London Patent Shine 10x Nail Lacquer ($18) in the shade Lemon Drop is the perfect pearly finish with a slight amount of color. This makes classic nails with a subtle twist.

Winter White

I love white nails in the summertime, but they’re also perfectly festive for winter holidays too! Try Essie’s All Daisy Long ($9) for a beautiful, wintery mani.

Holiday Cranberry

Nothing says festive like a deep, muted cranberry nail. Try Berry Naughty from Essie ($9) for the perfect holiday manicure.
