6 Textured Nail Art Looks That’ll Up Your Mani Game This Year
With winter in full swing and social distancing still in effect, our wardrobe is full of comfy sweaters and plush loungewear. Because we’re all about those cozy vibes, we also can’t get enough of soft textured nail art. From sweater-inspired designs to matte glitter manis, we rounded up our favorite examples of the trend on Instagram below.

Sweater Weather Nails

Just looking at these tri-tone sweater nails makes us feel warm. We love how @dianas.nail.art contrasted the matte cable knit texture on two accent nails with a glossy finish on the rest.

Tile Style Nails

Your kitchen tiles may be the last place you’d think to look to for nail art inspo, but as @beautyworksbyamy proved with this look, they’re worth a second glance. 

Knit Tips

Don’t want to go full-on cable knit? Try a sweater-inspired French mani instead. Nail artist @elles.gels.and.beauty paired the design with tortoise shell half moons for an even more on-trend look. 

Soft Glitter Nails

What happens when you mix a matte top coat (try Essie Matte About You) with glitter? You get a unique fuzzy texture you just have to try for yourself. 

Ice Queen-Approved Nails

With these wintery matte blue nails complete with 3-D accents and iridescent glitter, you’ll be channeling a certain Disney queen with the power of ice and snow. 

Matte About Dots Nails

The matte finish is what takes these neutral polka dot nails from cute to certified cool.
