30+ Super Trendy Winter Nails And How To Do Them
Fashion in generally changes drastically once the cold weather arrives. Instead of pretty dresses, we wear scarves and sweaters out at night, and worry about static cling in our hair rather than humidity.
One way to really up your game in the winter is by doing your nails. I personally love winter nails; I find that the colors are classy and warm and really make my hands look pretty.
I’ve tried out most of these colors and am absolutely loving them this season! Down in the color inspiration section, I’ve included 30+ colors with both the gel and regular color options on Amazon. If you’re interested in doing gel nails at home, check out my simple how-to post here!
So let’s get down to it: what are the hottest winter nail trends this season?
Winter Nail Trends
The classic neutral colors are always in during wintertime, especially colder neutral colors, but we’re seeing a few more specific trends this winter as well:
All types of glitter (keep reading for more info about how to do this a few sections down)
Gold and red
Dark purple/blue hues
Matte nails (check out the next section for info about how to do this)
White and sparkle
Base + Top Coats
Whether you’re using gel or regular nail polish, a base coat and top coat are both really important. They’ll determine not only how long your manicure lasts, but how shiny it is.
Some of the photos below showcase shiny nails while others are matte. Regardless, I’ve linked one gel color and one regular color for each. I recommend that you purchase a specific type of top coat depending on the level of shine that you’re looking for.
