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

Unpopular opinion: Festive nail art is usually a little too on-the-nose. While some of us may fawn over fern-dotted nails and the like, for the rest of you who are inwardly cringing at the thought—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). When in doubt, go with what you're most comfortable with—but add a punchy twist via colour, texture or finish

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