December is here and it’s time to get into the holiday spirit! Beyond shopping, holiday carols, decorating trees, and family gatherings, it's time to make spirits bright with your nails. Your nails can become your best accessory during this time, bringing life to any festivity! You can paint them traditional holiday colors, add some sparkle and bling, and jazz them up with some amazingly detailed nail designs.

Need some inspiration? Whether you DIY or have them professionally crafted, here are nine merry manis we spotted on Instagram that showcase a Christmas tree isn’t the only thing you can decorate to celebrate the season.
