The countdown has began! With just 18 days to go until Christmas, we're getting in the full festive beauty swing with all things red, green and glitter. Top of the list; nails!

If you're stuck for which merry manicure look to go for this December, we've picked out a few of our favourites from the pros on Instagram to help you choose.

 

Candy cane borders

We adore this delicious candy cane look by @paintbyjaz. Perfect for if you want something subtle and sweet, the candy cane shape perfectly hooks round the top of the nail to create a playful, festive border.
