‘Tis the season to switch up your nails. Winter nail polish colors are oh-so-pretty—from snowflake whites to hot chocolate browns, it’s safe to say there are plenty of options to choose from. If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect winter nail art design to complement your beauty look, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’re sharing 27 stunning hues that are worthy of adding to your winter nail color Pinterest board. Bring on the cold weather colors.
If there’s one winter nail color that instantly comes to mind when we think of the chilly season, it’s candy apple red. This bright, vibrant hue demands attention and exudes an aura of confidence. Paint your nails in this bold color and you’ll be ready to meet your crush underneath the mistletoe.
Like we mentioned, a snowy white color is one of our favorites for winter. Use it as your nail polish color for a chic, on-trend manicure. We’d say this winter nail polish color is approved for any occasion.
If you prefer to wear a darker shade on your nails, give a deep, navy blue nail color a try. This rich hue pairs wonderfully with a gold accent nail. Speaking of…
Gold nails are a ritzy option that’s perfect for the winter season. Wear this color to your holiday parties and gatherings for a manicure that won’t go unnoticed.
The smell of evergreen instantly brings us back to the memories of Christmas tree shopping with our families. It also reminds us of the gorgeous, forest green color of said trees. Swipe on a deep green shade that rivals the garland laying across the fireplace.
No one wants coal during the holidays—but we certainly aren’t opposed to a charcoal nail color. This dark gray shade is another option for those who prefer their nail polish to be on the dark end of the spectrum.
If you like to keep your nails simple, nude nail polish is a foolproof option. It allows for more leeway between touch-ups as chips are less noticeable. If you want to take things up a notch, paint on a popping accent color, like that candy apple red we mentioned earlier.
While there may not be any sugar plum fairies in sight, we do think a plum nail color is stunning for winter. A beautiful purple with pink undertones, it’s the perfect combination of whimsical and elegant.
While black may seem a little harsh, this edgy color has become one of the biggest nail trends as of late. Sport it during the winter season for a statement look—and take things a notch further with a gold or silver accent nail.
Hot chocolate is one of our favorite beverages of the season. While chocolate nails may not be quite as appetizing as the winter drink, they do happen to be an equally popular winter nail color option.
Steer away from traditional winter hues and opt for a bright, cobalt blue instead. This cool color is still in line with the cool tones of winter while being a tad more fun and playful than other options on our list.
A classic this time of year, if you’re looking for a nail polish color you can’t go wrong with, maroon is your best bet. We recommend pairing this deep red color with a maroon-painted pout.
On the lighter side of things, light gray nails offer a neutral option that’s slightly different than the usual. They’ll look beautiful amidst a white winter wonderland.
Not all fall nail colors have to be left behind. Olive looks just as stunning in the winter as it did in the fall. Bonus points if you pair it with a gold or chocolate nail design.
Mauve lipstick isn’t the only mauve beauty trend around. This dusty rose shade also happens to look amazing on the nails. If your favorite color is pink, we’d say this is the best winter nail polish for you.
Not all browns are created equally. For a warmer, lighter brown nail polish, give a chestnut manicure a try. Like chocolate, this winter nail color also pairs wonderfully with gold, as well as the mauve we talked about above.
Speaking of warm hues, rust is another warm option for your nails this winter. The orange-meets-brown color has quickly become one of our favorites, and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon.
Another purple on our list, there’s no denying this color evokes the utmost luxury. And if you’re feeling up to it, you can up the royal vibes with gold half-moon details.
Ice, ice blue, baby! Take cues from the icicles hanging on the rooftops and give an ice blue nail color a try. This near-pastel shade has a silvery undertone that makes it perfect for the winter season.
Editor’s note: Speaking of ice, the chilly winter weather can often take a toll on your hands. To keep your skin hydrated and help your manicure look its best, make sure to keep the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey All Over Balm - Face, Neck, Chest and Hands in your bag for on-the-go moisturizing.
When brown meets gray, you get a beautiful taupe shade. If you’ve been on the hunt for a cool-toned brown nail polish color, look no further than a taupe manicure.
Silver is another metallic shade that’s beautiful for winter. If you’re a fan of combining shades, we love the look of silver and ice blue.
You may think that lavender is a nail color for spring—and you’re not wrong. That being said, a smoky lavender hue features cool, gray undertones that make it perfect for the winter months.
This earthy hue is another popular color for 2021. The near-neutral shade features notes of orange and red for a manicure that’s trendy without being over-the-top.
Bring on the dark nail colors. This black nail color with hints of red will allow you to embrace the vampy vibes for winter. To really upgrade the edgy look, consider coating your mani with a matte top coat.
This winter-approved pastel is perfect for those who want to keep their nails light and girly during the winter months. Think of your favorite peppermint holiday treats and you’ll understand why this light green shade is on our list.
We’ll take the bronze! If gold and silver aren’t quite your style, consider trying a bronze nail color on for size. This metallic brown shade is simply dazzling.
Last but certainly not least, emerald is another royal winter nail color we’re loving for the season. The rich green hue demands attention while straying from classic shades like candy apple red and gold.
