Four Scottish salons for festive-inspired nail art

Nothing gives you a daily dose of festive cheer quite like a festive-inspired manicure. As far as we’re concerned, the more glitter, the better.

We’ve picked out a few of our favourite festive-inspired nails from some of the top salons in Scotland to help you get ready for your Christmas party in style.

NAF Salon, Glasgow

NAF’s bright, quirky and millennial-cool vibe lends itself perfectly to fun Christmas nail art designs. Can we just take a second to appreciate the Muppets Christmas Carol-inspired nails, complete with hand-painted Kermit and Gonzo? For something a little less pop-culture and a little more chic, we love NAF’s burgundy manicure with negative space snowflakes. Or go full on holly-jolly with Santa, fairy lights, Christmas puddings and candy cane stripes to embrace the holiday spirit through the medium of nail art.

Buff, Edinburgh

Buff are well-known as being one of Edinburgh’s top salons for creative nail art, and so it’s no surprise their Christmas designs are some of the best we’ve seen. For something festive without being too Christmassy, go for an abstract design in seasonally-appropriate colours like red and green - with a touch of gold foil, of course. If your style is a little more bold, how about Buff’s gothic “Merry Xmas” nails with a hint of glitter?

OMG! Nails, Glasgow

For super glam nails this Christmas, head to Glasgow’s OMG! Nails. Their signature style is glitzy and glamorous, so it’s the perfect place to get Christmas party-ready. We love the negative space in this festive deep red manicure, made extra festive with the addition of gold glitter polish. For something a little less traditional opt for a nude colour scheme with glitter, diamantes and bauble nail art to see you through the holidays.
