The 2020 holiday season will be a lot different this year, so why not try a new color or design and break away from the tired old typical holiday colors? Those hot chocolate or latte selfies could use a refresh anyway. Check out these 5 holiday nail trends that will make a big impact at your smaller-than-usual holiday get-togethers. 

 Blue Christmas
Consider deep cobalt, powdery blues, and sparkly blue glitters, to create a holiday look without committing to one day in particular. You can potentially wear a blue color palette throughout December and into the New Year.  Throw in some snowflake designs or details, maybe a snowman or two, and you’ve got the winter wonderland look nailed.
