Looking for a holiday nail art idea that you can wear all winter long? Try snowflake nail art! The wintry design can take you from now well into February. Plus, it can be as subtle or as bold as you like. Even better? You don’t need to know how to do nail art to DIY it at home.
My trick? Nail art stickers! Nail decals are such an easy way to to DIY nail art at home. I bought these snowflake embossed nail stickers online. The reason I love these is they’re a 5D design, which means they’re slightly raised. That way they look more realistic. The ones I ordered came with three packs of stickers. But there are a ton of snowflake nail art decals to choose from.

The process is very simple. In fact, I filmed it all for an Instagram Reels! Here are the steps:
- Start with a dry, nude manicure. I used OPI “Do You Take Lei Away.”
- Hold the stickers above your nails to figure out a design pattern.
- Use tweezers to peel off the sticker and place on your nails. I love these Revlon tweezers.
- If any stickers are too big for your nails, simply cut them before pressing down.
- Once you’re done, secure the designs with a top coat. I use a top coat from Essie.
Mine is just one way to do a snowflake manicure. Here are some other snowflake nail art ideas that I found on Instagram:
accent nail snowflake
I always find cute manicure inspo from @oliveandjune. They’re big on accent nails when it comes to nail art. A snowflake on your ring or pointer finger is a great way to ease into the look.
french manicure snowflake nail art
French manicures have been having a major moment. How chic is this alternating French mani and snowflake design from @paintbucketnails? I also really like how @ninanailedit made her snowflake mani look frosted with matte white tips.
winter sky snowflake nail art
Snowflakes in the sky are a fun way to incorporate non holiday colors into your manicure. There is something so dreamy about this sky blue mani from @thehangedit. And @paintbucketnails‘ white snowflakes with a touch of silver on black reminds me a wintry night sky.
Want to do a snowflake manicure at home but don’t feel like painting or figuring out stickers? I found these cute snowflake press-on nails that you can either apply with glue or adhesive. And don’t forget…
