15 Inspiring Holiday Instagram Snaps From R29 Readers

Didn't deck your own halls? Miss all the festive store windows because you shopped online? Not to worry—you can still get into the holiday spirit, with a little help from your fellow R29 readers! That's right, we collected your favorite (and undeniably festive) Instagram pictures, captured throughout the joyous season—and, yes, our email inbox was working overtime.
Sure, it was a tough task, but we narrowed the options down to 15 images (over copious glasses of nog). The result? Decor (and more) galore! You showed us that a pug really does look great in a Santa costume and that going to the Christkindlmarket with Mom never gets old. A few local names you might know even jumped on the bandwagon. From nail artist Astrowifey's crazy-fun snowflake tips to DIY centerpiece love from entertaining guru Debi Lilly, this roundup proves it really is the season to be jolly—and rock a killer mani in the process.
