As we dust off our puffy winter coats and take our sweats out of retirement, many of us can’t help but dread the long winter ahead. To help break up the monotony of dreary winter days, we recommend adding a little bit of glam to your fingernails in the form of icy, snow-inspired nail art. From snowflake designs to cool blue hues, find all the winter nail art inspo you’ll ever need from Instagram, ahead. 

What’s Cooler Than Being Cool? 

Who doesn’t love a statement nail? This acrylic nail set, complete with sweater detailing on the middle and thumb fingernails, is practically guaranteed to keep spirits bright long after the holidays are over.

Cold As Ice

Consider these nails — which even include sparkly icicles — jewelry for your fingertips. We love how @louiseannabel.nailartist mixes and matches different colors, textures and designs for a look that’s uniquely her own.

Done and Dusted

Coat your nails with Essie Of Quartz, a holographic nude pink that glitters like a fresh pile of snow on a winter morning.

Totally Frozen 

It’s impossible not to smile when catching a glimpse of this adorable Arandelle-inspired acrylic nail set, even if you’re in the midst of yet another round of hand washing. 

Falling Flurries 

Take a classic mani up a notch by adding flecks of sparkles and hand-drawn white stars to replicate the tiniest flakes of falling snow.

Frosted Tips

The term ‘frosted tips’ takes on a whole new meaning after seeing this nail art design by @miumiumanis. Between the glitter, the snowflake detailing and the smooth matte finish, dare we say that frosted tips are back in style?
