Everything about the holidays is extra. The sweaters have ornaments and pom poms hanging off of them, beards are covered in glitter, dresses sparkle and shimmer, makeup is a kaleidoscope of red and green, and the nails are walking art exhibits. Let's talk about the nails for a minute. While some people decide to get glittery manis or tasteful sweater art designs, others scrap that idea and decide to go big or go home. And it's fabulous. There are so many crazy holiday nail designs out there that will make your heart somersault in appreciation — even if your mind simultaneously wonders how you would ever manage to rip off any toilet paper in the bathroom with such talons.
But that's just a minor detail. You can hold your pee into 2018 if it means you'll have a manicure-turned-art-instillation as part of your holiday look. Rather than making people remember you because of your bomb dress, your crushed velvet tuxedo, or stop-traffic lipstick, sear yourself into their memories with a manicure that will have their jaws dropping.
Don't know what kind of mani would do just that? Below are 13 totally impractical, but 100 percent fabulous holiday nails that will have you running to your nearest salon.
