Customize your DIY holiday nail art manicure with snowflakes and sparkles by cutting up the decals into different shapes and mixing and matching any texture or pattern for the hottest holiday styles, which will last up to one week with the Limited Edition Holiday Kiss Nail Dress. Each package contains 28 strips of holiday nail art ideas in seasonal designs, such as Snow Queen, Winter Wonder, Mistletoe, Champagne Toast, Sleigh Ride and New Year's Kiss, as seen in the slideshow.

If decals are still too much work, opt for the Impress Press-On Manicure. They press on and peel off with zero drying time and no mess. Best of all, they will not damage the nails. The unique packaging also makes these DIY holiday nails ideal stocking stuffers.

Both brands of DIY holiday nail art are available nationwide at major retailers such as Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart and more; some holiday nail designs have limited availability.
