This blog is about organizing the most incredible stuff by style, theme, and aesthetic, so, of course, we had to make a list with authentic, enchanting, and frosty winter nails ideas to get in the mood for the most magical season of the year. This is actually a post with winter nails and snowflakes nails art since snowflakes are basically the soul of winter when it comes to the overall winter mood and aesthetics.
I don’t really believe that following trends is mandatory to feel good in your own skin. The huge success of Wednesday on Netflix just proved to us that there is nothing more fulfilling than being ourselves, regardless of what everyone else is wearing or doing.
So, just follow your instincts and get inspired by these cool and enchanting nail designs. Some I picked because they are trendy, but most of them just because they were cool and evoke the mysterious magic of winter!
Needless to say that all the nail ideas below are also fitting for Christmas and New Year celebrations.
The Winter Nail Colors
Cool Weather asks for a cooler color palette. From deep midnight blue, to the neutral cold grey and a snowy cold white, these are the most wintery colors for a winter nail mood. As for Gold versus silver, they are popular picks due to all the festivities held in winter.
