Winter Nail Trends For Your Holiday Manicure

Winter is a great time to wear bold, beautiful nail colors. The winter weather can often be harsh and gloomy. But at the same time, winter allows us to wear long and thick coats, which are perfect for hiding our nails from the cold weather.

The following are some of the best winter nail trends that you can try out this season:

Matte Nails

Matte nails are a great option for those who want to change their regular manicure without going overboard with glitters and sparkles. Matte nails look elegant and sophisticated, but they also require more effort in application. The good news is that they will last longer than any other kinds of nail polish available in the market today.

Ombre Nails

An ombre manicure is one of the most popular types of nail art right now among women of all ages and backgrounds. It offers so many variations that you can choose from depending on your taste and preference. It's also very easy to create an ombre look on your nails; all you need is a little patience and some time on your hands. The best thing about this type of nail art is that it doesn't require special tools or equipment, such as a nail polish applicator, making it very convenient for women on the go.

Glitter Stripes

This season's version of glitter stripes is not just about plain sparkles anymore. You can choose from various colors, from pastels to bright shades, to create an eye-catching look that fits your personality and style. These polka-dot nails look great on their own or as part of a more elaborate design.

Gold & Silver Stripes

Try gold or silver stripes instead of glitter stripes if you want something simple that will still look good with your party outfit. This trend gives off a classy vibe that pairs well with any outfit in your closet and any jewelry piece you might be wearing during this time of year (think rings and necklaces).

Metallic Nails

Metallic nails are a classic choice for the holidays. They're shiny, sparkly, and look great on everyone! Metallic nails are versatile and can be worn year-round. You can wear them all year round if you want to — although we don't recommend them!


Sparkles are another trendy way to decorate your nails during the winter months — especially around Christmas when everything is glittered up and covered in tinsel! There are many kinds of sparkles and glitters, including gold, silver, and holographic. You can even buy a set of different glitter colors and mix them to create your custom color! For a more sophisticated look, try using matte or liquid nail polish on top of the sparkles to give it a more professional finish.

Festive Fingernails

You can do a French manicure with a sparkle for a festive holiday look. This is one of the most popular winter nail designs for this season. You can choose from different shades of reds and whites or even mix it up with a little silver or gold detail on your tips. Make sure you do it with the glitter sparingly because it can look tacky instead of classy!

Snowflake Nails

Snowflake nails are a great way to bring out your inner snow queen. Snowflakes are the same shape and size so you can achieve this look with any nail design. Make sure all your nails have at least one snowflake design, even if it's just on one finger.

Silver Nails

Silver is the season's color, so why not try some silver accents for your nails? You could opt for a metallic silver base coat with accent nails in gold or red or go bold with solid silver designs all over your hands.


Layering nude and gray hues over full-coverage white creates the illusion of skin, which makes nails appear longer. Longer nails are also ultra-chic, according to celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann. Add interest by layering on something unique such as galaxy glitter or a nail wrap. Always prep your nails with a good base coat, leave extra time for drying and remove any current polish before applying new products.
