Winter is here and with it comes the desire to cover ourselves in as much clothing as possible. This includes your hands and feet, so if you’re anything like me, your nails are probably a little forgotten in the cooler months.
I’ve got you covered with these 9 winter nail colours that will save your lame manicure and keep you on trend.
Metallics reign supreme this season – and this silver colour is just one of many options for you to choose from.
You may have splurged on your perfect winter coat and your favourite pair of boots, but if you want to really get into the seasonal spirit, you’ve got to accessorize. And even though we’re sure your manicure is always on point, we think it’s time for a little upgrade. Leave the florals behind and try one of these nine nail colours that will save your lame manicure. From navy to pearly white and everything in between, these are the shades to try now.
It’s the time of year when even the most meticulous manicure can get chipped or dull in the blink of an eye. But a few smart nail choices can help your mani last longer (and look better) than it otherwise would.
Here are 9 shades that are easy on the eyes and will make your nails feel like they’ve been freshly painted as long as possible.
1. Black: Black is not only a fashion staple for winter, but a great nail polish colour too. A slightly glossy black will last longer than a flat black, so go for sheer or opaque glossy shades to best show off the colour.
2. Red: A bright red polish is a classic look for winter, and a great way to add some colour to any outfit without making too much of a statement.

Warm shades are always in style during the cooler months of the year. We’re used to seeing dark reds, oranges and browns, but there are plenty of other options that can save your manicure from looking mundane.
If you’re looking for something different, this season’s nail trends are anything but boring. Play around with a mixture of textures, matte finishes and creative designs to add some life back into your hands this winter.
Over the past two years I’ve been experimenting with nail colours and the joy it brings to my life is simply amazing.
I’ve always been one to wear black nail polish because it’s safe and goes with everything, but once I discovered Essie and OPI, my world was changed.
Nail colours can spice up any boring outfit, which is perfect for winter when you’re wearing your coat most of the time (unless you live in Australia, then you can wear this all year round).
If you’re like me and constantly have chipped nails from being a perfectionist at peeling off old polish, don’t fear – these colours will save your life.
Winter is the time of year when you’re in your head and using your hands a lot. And, like you, winter nails are more introspective and more sensuous. Winter nail colours have more depth than summer ones which are often like sheer, light-reflecting watercolours on nails.
Darker shades like burgundy, plum and navy are very appropriate for winter. There’s also the chance to experiment with textures such as metallics and mattes (which are terribly popular right now).
So here are some suggestions for the winter season if you’re looking to update your manicure or pedicure…
My nails are TERRIBLE. I can’t grow them out, they break constantly and my cuticles are always dry no matter how much moisturiser I apply. In fact, I’m pretty sure my thumb nail is currently growing a third nail on top of it (WHAT).
So it’s been a while since I’ve had a manicure that didn’t look like an eight-year-old did it in their parent’s bedroom with non-toxic nail polish they bought at the local newsagent.
And while I do spend most of my day typing away at a keyboard, that doesn’t mean I can’t have a decent looking set of nails to go with my
