6 Winter Nail Art Ideas That Are Simple Yet Super ChicDecember 22, 2020
During the winter, there’s a surplus of holiday-inspired nail art ideas flying around our Insta and Tik Tok feeds. But even if you’re not the Christmas-trees-on-your-fingertips type, you can still take part in the nail art fun. Here, we rounded up five non-cheesy winter nail ideas, from seasonal-inspired gradient color schemes to chic sparkling star designs, ahead.
Green Linear and Negative Space
Forest green nail polish is refreshing for winter. Add a little linear and negative space nail art and you have yourself an understated winter mani.
Use nail stickers to achieve a holiday-spirited mani like this star look. It’s a step up from regular polish and has a little holiday flare without being over the top.
With gold foil nails, you’ll be competing for attention as the most sparkly thing in the room, but in a totally chic way. We love how it’s paired here with a deep blue polish — the perfect winter color.
Can’t pick just one color? Rock a different shade on each finger for a playful look. One tip: try to stick to similar undertones so your shade mixing and matching looks intentional.
The OG French manicure has received quite the upgrade in 2020. Rather than opting for a traditional pink and white pairing, go for a gold tip. It has a tinsel vibe that makes your nails on point for the season, yet still chic and sophisticated.
If you don’t want to commit to a full-blown glitter polish or sequin embellishments, try choosing a holographic polish. While we love this purple hue, you can also go for a more muted, white opalescent shade like the Essie Twinkle in Time.
