5 Easy DIY Nail Looks To Get Into The Holiday Spirit

And to get in some much-needed self-care!

A person's hand models pink and sparkly painted nails.

Self-care is extremely important, but I don't always make time for it. One of the things I love to do to practice self-care is to paint my nails! It doesn't matter how simple or how complex the design is, it's simply a fun activity for me to take my mind off of everything else. And it leaves my nails feeling polished and beautiful. So here's some easy nail art ideas for you to use, whether it's for self-care or not! And a lot of these looks match the theme of the holidays!

Multicolored Nails

For multicolored nails, simply choose five different nail polishes that create a cohesive color palette! Add some matte or sparkly ones into the mix to switch it up!

Sparkle Dotted Nails

For this festive look, grab a sheer nude-ish nail color and any shimmery colors you have! Paint on two layers of the sheer nude then dot with the different shimmer polishes. It almost looks like there's tiny ornaments on your nails!

Classic Red

This look only needs 2 nail polishes: your favorite red and a glitter polish! Paint all of your nails red except your ring finger, which you'll paint with the glitter. You could also make this a festive look by painting your ring finger red then striping it with a white glitter to make a candy cane design!

Gold Tipped Nails

This nail look is more understated with its subtle gold tips. Simply paint on a light nude color and outline the tips of your nails with some gold polish! This look is perfect from now all the way until New Year's!

Dark Nails

Go for a darker nail color with some warm undertones and a subtle shine to really match the mood of the holidays! These nails will work perfectly sitting by the fire and sipping hot cocoa!

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
