Cold Spell

Paintbox creative director Mabelyn Alva says, "Cold Spell is the perfect holiday nail look with a neutral base and silver French tip, complementing every holiday outfit and just the right amount of sparkle." 


Take a deep dive into Christmas jewel tones with this manicure that showcases Deco Miami ($10) ornament stickers.

Molten Lava

OPI polishes were used by manicurist Julie Kandalec to create this molten lava nail design for Zoe Saldana's winter 2022 cover of InStyle.

Marble Stream

The focal point of this Hanukkah nail art is a deep blue hue. While some nails are painted a solid blue, others have a white, blue, and silver marbled stream down the center.

Peek-a-Boo Candy

With a hint of surprise peppermint, this design makes use of the underside of the nails with gel-X tips.

Clear Base

These Deco Miami Nail Stickers ($10) have a really unique base that makes them stand out. Among other things, they have candy canes, gingerbread people, and cardinals.

Glitter, Of Course

Use an abundance of glitter to create a two-toned gradient. Olive & June's Obvi ($9) and Exclamation Point ($9) were used to create this look.

Holiday Blue

Dusty blue is featured in this blue look in three different ways: solid, glitter-topped, and glittery nail tip.

NYE Color Blocking

Gold Rush ($9), Silver ($9), Snow White ($9), and Black Sugar ($9) gel polishes from Mia Secret were used to create this half-moon look for New Year's Eve.

Stamped Glitter

"This is a Hanukkah look using a glitter stamping plate design, like Super Trop-i-cal-i-fiji-istic ($12) and No Room for the Blues ($12)." Smith adds.
