Christmas Nail Art Stickers And Transfers

If you need a quick fix (and we don't blame if you do), Elegant Touch have got your back. Their limited-edition Christmas press-on nails often sell out fast, so act quick if you want to get your hands on their cute designs. We love their Not Another Christmas Jumper nails (£7.95), and the Henry Holland x Elegant Touch Xmas Xcess nails (£8.99). They've even got clever Nail Guards (£2.95), which you simply pop on your nails before using press-ons or other fake nails, and stop your natural nails getting damaged.

Also, be sure to check out MoYou's cool nail art stamping set. Sounds fiddly, but actually fool-proof, the sets allow you to turn any nail polish you own into a perfect festive design using their stencils. Set aside an evening to get the hang of it, and reap the rewards. Also a winner are Thumbs Up!'s easy-to-use nail transfer stickers (from £6.99).
