With the weather getting colder and the winter season coming in full force, we are all putting away the summer dresses and getting all the cosy knitwear out. The trendy nail designs are also slowly changing to suit the mood of winter. During this season, nail designs are all about minimal designs that still create a strong manicure.
In this post, I’ll be sharing 15 winter nail designs you’ll want to try this year. These designs have everything from dainty nail art designs to deep rich tones, all of which you’ll definitely want to give a go.
This is the perfect nail design for winter; the ice and snow theme is great for the colder months. The blue marble theme is a trendy and stylish design, and then the snowflake detailing adds to the winter theme. The glitter is subtle, but when it catches the light, it can look stunning.
2. Dark Winter
Many tend to stay away when it comes to black manicures, but this is a great way to have it. The white snowflakes brighten up the black, and the dark gold foil detail is a really unique touch. The different design on each nail is a great way of making the manicure more exciting.
3. Snow Angel
You can never go wrong with a classic french manicure, but the added twist makes it even more beautiful. The snowflake design is great for the winter season, and the added gems make it more glitzy. This nail design is perfect for a special occasion, especially if you want something that’s classy but still has the glitz and glam feel to it.
4. Midnight Sky
Navy blue looks gorgeous in the winter months, so why not incorporate it into your nail design. The gold glitter on top is such a simple detail, but it completely transforms the manicure. It brightens the look of the nails and makes them more interesting. The line detail on the middle nails is a simple, classy way of adding an extra feature to the design.
5. Christmas Jumper
This is a classy winter nail design, the check design is classic in autumn/winter, and it works perfectly for nail designs too. The nude base and the faint line detail makes the manicure look clean and sophisticated. The gold makes the design stand out more and gives it that elegant look.
6. Ocean Blue
Blue is a classic for a winter nail design. The ice blue colour is great for winter as it stands out, but it also suits the ice-cold theme. The mix between the full colour and tip design is unique and a great way of switching up a standard manicure.
7. Silver Shimmer
This is an elegant nail design; the silver glitter and blush nail polish work well together and create a stunning manicure. The two middle nails being different from the rest of the manicure makes it stand out more and give it a unique feel. The intricate snowflake detail looks very delicate and dainty.
8. Golden Forest
Deep green is always popular during the winter months, and this is such a great way to add it to your nail designs. The nude, green and gold complement each other really well, and they all stand out as much as each other. The stripe design is a fun, creative touch to the design that completes the look.
9. Snow Crystal
This is such an elegant, glamorous design. The nude nail is classy and gives a clean-cut look; the white and gold glitter line around the side is a simple detail but makes such a difference to the design. The gold glitter gives it an expensive look and makes it even more perfect for a special occasion.
10. Snowflake Ice
This teal colour is perfect for winter; not only does it have a cold wintery feel to it, but the green tint and snowflake design also make it look quite festive. The silver glitter blends really well with the design and compliments it really well. This is a great design for the weeks leading up to the festive season as it does have a festive feel to it but isn’t too much.
11. Champagne Sparkles
This colour is perfect for the winter season; it’s not a bright colour bright but also not a standard nude shade. This is a much simpler design, but the elegant touch of glitter and thin white line makes it more exciting and gives it a more statement look.
12. Ice Glitter
Teal green works great in winter as it has an icy, snowy feel to it. The tip design is ideal for those who don’t like the detail in their manicure, but the glitter polish and swirl design on the two fingers is a great way of adding detail minimally.
13. Chocolate Pudding
Brown is still one of the most popular colours this year, and it is perfect for the winter season. Winter is all about deep neutral tones, so a chocolate brown is a great option for your manicures. The pop of white not only breaks up the solid colour and make it more interesting, but it also brightens the whole manicure. So, if you’re worried about it being too dark, this is a good way of brightening it up.
14. White Winter
White nail designs are a classic no matter the time of year, but white nails in winter are the ultimate pairing. The different designs on each nail create a unique, fun manicure that looks classy and chic. The gold glitter adds some colour to the nails and makes them stand out more, and the nude nails create a nice balance between the two.
15. Winter Warmer
Sometimes it’s nice to have a pop of colour during the winter months, and this is a great way to wear it. This purple creates such a beautiful manicure; even though it’s bright, it’s a muted tone, so it doesn’t look too much. The different snowflake and cable-knit designs fit the theme for the winter, and the mix of the colour and design creates a stunning manicure for you to try out.
