Find Christmas tree nail art too cheesy for your fancy? Not a fan of candy cane-striped digits? We got you covered.

Unpopular opinion: Festive nail art doesn't have to be taken too literally. While some of us may fawn over snowflake-dotted nails and the like, the rest of you who are inwardly cringing are you're reading this—let your manicure represent your personality to a tee this holiday season.

A couple of trends on our radar as of late: jewel tones (a subtle wear to rock red and green without being too obvious), glitter in various forms (from abstract motifs to chevron stripes), metallics for a festive glint (on the tips, Kintsugi-inspired, marble speckled and more), and reinterpreted classics (negative space red and mismatched digits/hands).

Ahead, 19 Christmas nail art ideas that won't make you (or your nail artist) yawn—we promise:
