30 Hideously Festive Manicures That Are Ruining Christmas

Hey girl. Bad news. Your heavily decal-ed, excessively red-and-green, badly doodled nail art is ruining Christmas. Not to be a Scrooge, but that melty-faced Santa on your thumb might as well be a lump of coal in my stocking. I’m all for getting in the holiday spirit and if you’re headed to an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party, by all means, do your nails up to match — but don’t you dare fool yourself into thinking these 30 manicures are anything but ho-ho-ho-horrrrrible.

34 Festive Holiday Manicures That Aren’t Hideously Tacky

It needs to be said: nail art, especially around the holidays, goes too far. Little pinky Santas and toe-thumb Rudolphs or all 10 fingers painted to look like wrapped presents, complete with glued-on bow decals. It’s too much! Can we take these down a notch and embrace nail art that’s actually, I dunno, pretty again? It’s not hard! Look, I found 34 festive, glitter-y, fun holiday manicures to inspire you.

Chocolate, almonds, and cocoa powder sound like the makings of a decadent treat. And also a pedicure.  Oh, yes: the hot chocolate pedicure is here. Maria Bonita Salon, located in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood, is offering an indulgent hot chocolate pedi. First, you soak your tootsies in cocoa, almond oils, and Dead Sea salts. Next your dead skin is sloughed off with a chocolate and almond exfoliating scrub. Then your feet are massaged with a combination of chocolate, almond oil, and vitamin E, topped off with a hot chocolate paraffin infusion. Unlike the hot chocolate at your local coffee shop which shouldn’t cost more than $3, the hot chocolate pedicure will set you back a whopping $40. While it’s decadent to be sure, it sounds like a misuse of perfectly good hot cocoa to me.  [Maria Bonita Salon] [Image of hot chocolate via Shutterstock]

Weekend Nail Project: The Secret Society Mani

secret society manicure
Shhh...It's secret (society!)

We’re a bit obsessed with the Illuminati around here (hey, Jay and Bey!), so the idea of a Secret Society mani is right up our alley. Designed by Rita Remark, the manicure is an interpretation of what a secret society language might look like. Go with Rita’s designs or make one up on the fly! [Windsor Star]
