Christmas Nail Art Ideas! (6 in 1)





I love Christmas so much. So so much. It´s, next to Halloween, my favorite season. I love the feeling, the fashion, the weather (although I would love to live where it snows), love the Christmas trees, the lights, the presents (and opening mine for sure), spending time with my family, thinking how great it´s been, being happy, the music, the cozy feeling of being at home with Ma and Dad, everything!

So, I decided to get festive on my nails as well…with 6 different designs. Super festive I might add.
