Winter is an exciting time of the year when it comes to fashion and beauty, especially when it comes to nails. The cold winter months are the best time to experiment with bold nail colors, glitter and more!
In this blog post, I will show you how to make your nails look fabulous during the frosty months.
French Nails for Winter
When it comes to nails, French manicures are the epitome of classic beauty. What could be better than a simple white tip on top of a light pink or nude nail? Not much! This simple look goes with just about everything and never goes out of style.
You can also try a twist on this classic look by using white tips on a bright red nail or even a black nail if you’re feeling edgy.
One of our favourite things about winter is being able to get away with having even more paint on our fingers than usual. We like to go all out, and we’re here to tell you how you can make your nails look fabulous during the frosty months.
Firstly, let’s talk colours. Of course, you can’t go wrong with a classic red or nude shade during winter but don’t be afraid to experiment with other hues as well. Pastel colours are perfect for winter nails. They not only look cute but they also add a feminine touch to the cold season. Red and pink shades are also popular choices for winter nails and add a splash of colour to dreary days.
Coffin nails are always a good idea, especially during the chilly months. We’re loving this shape because it gives you enough room for nail art without making your hands look cumbersome and chunky. If you have shorter nails, opting for coffin-shaped ones is also a good idea because they will elongate the fingers and make them look longer.
Of course, we can’t forget about sparkles! You can never go wrong with glitter, especially during Christmas time. Add some extra sparkle to your nails by painting them gold or silver or why not try some magical
Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder, and there’s no beauty like winter beauty. Whether it’s a snow-covered pine branch or a frosty, sparkling morning, winter has such a distinct look to it that you can’t help but fall in love with it. You can try to capture this look on your nails. A French manicure is the perfect way to achieve this goal. With just a few strokes of the brush and some careful planning, you can have nails that would make even the most seasoned fashionista envious.
The first thing that you’ll want to do is to choose your color scheme. Winter colors are often muted and calm tones that add depth without being too bright or too loud. For example, you might want to use navy blue for the tip of your nails instead of white and then choose a light gray or even black shade for the rest of your nail bed. You could also opt for something more traditional such as white tips on a red background or even switch it up and go with red tips on a white background. If you’re feeling really bold, try doing each nail in different colors such as white tips on one finger, red tips on another, navy blue tips on another finger and black tips on yet
As the winter months approach, most of us tend to stray away from bright, bold tones and move towards darker, more subtle colours. But why? Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you have to lose your sense of style. In fact, your nail colour can be a great way to add some life back into your look.
This winter, why not try purple nails? A deep, royal purple is the perfect colour for this time of year. It is always appropriate for the office (as long as you keep your nails short) and adds an edginess to your going out attire.
If purple is too much for you, another great option is burgundy or plum. A little bit more subtle than purple, these colours are still very on-trend for the upcoming season and will keep that drab winter wardrobe looking fresh.
For those who really want to stay within their comfort zone this winter, you can never go wrong with a classic red nail. You’ll never be out of style when wearing red and it’s an elegant tone that pairs perfectly with everything in your closet!
Hello winter! The coldest season of the year, but also one of the most beautiful ones. Although it can be really cold and grey it also has its up sides; dark red lips, shimmery eyes and fabulous nails!
To be honest, I have never really been a nail polish fanatic, but this winter I am going all out. My nails are painted with a different color every week, mostly dark colors for a dramatic effect.**
Nail polish is a hot commodity these days. Just like shoes, nail polish can make or break an outfit. It has to be the right color and style to really go with your outfit and personality. Some people are scared of nail polish because they think it will look cheap, but I am here to tell you that nail polishing can be fun and classy!
I have 3 important rules for choosing the right nail polish:
1) Make sure it goes with your skin tone! If you have fair skin, light pinks and pale neutral colors are great for you. If you have darker skin, yellows and oranges will look great on you!
2) Make sure it goes with your fashion sense. If you like bright colors, don’t be afraid to use bright colors on your nails! You don’t have to match each color on your outfit exactly – just keep in the same color family.
3) Make sure it goes with your personality. If you are more laid back and casual, don’t wear hot pink nails unless all of your friends do that too, or unless it’s Halloween and you’re wearing a costume!
I hope these tips help you get started in the world of nail polish!
The typical french manicure finished with a glossy white tip and an overall sheer pink polish is so last year. This season, the French manicure has been modernized with new colors and techniques.
“The french manicure is considered by most to be a classic look, but it’s ultimately not the most updated,” celebrity manicurist Beth Fricke told The Huffington Post. “The updated look is all about the reverse french where we use a dark color for the free edge of the nail instead of white.”
This new take on the iconic look is often referred to as the “half moon” or “reverse french” manicure. All you need to do is paint your nails with a sheer pink or nude polish then finish off with a small crescent of black at the base of your nail. The best part? You don’t even have to worry about being precise.
“When applying the color at the base of your nail, be sure to leave a jagged edge,” said Fricke. “You don’t want it to be too perfect.”
