Winter Nail Art Trends

Here comes Winter folks, in all its frozen, fabulous glory. Well, maybe everyone doesn’t love the frozen part, but it is the season of celebrations and what goes hand in hand with celebrations? Hot looks that heat up our coolest time of year! So, when you’re putting together your perfect ensemble for the holiday party circuit this year, don’t forget to top it off by paying attention to those tips – fingertips that is! Check out some of the fun and fantastic nail trends making the rounds this year.

Lace has its place – And its place is on your nails! Deep, warm shades of red or dark blue are a great starting point for a rich and festive look. Jazz it up even more by adding a delicate overlay in a lace design. If you have a steady hand, you can paint your lace design on freehand, or use a nail transfer to create a beautiful accent that pops!

Just call me sparkles –What says celebrate better than a bit of sparkle? Glitter is a great way to get some sparkle in your life by adding some to your nails! Just apply a splash of glitter over your polish before it dries. Or if you prefer all glitter, just paint on a clear coat of polish and sparkle away by splashing some glitter on!

French is fresh – Who doesn’t love the classic and elegant look of those pretty French tips? Some things never go out of style and this look pairs well with virtually any look!

A real gem – Maybe not an actual gem, but a perfectly placed faux diamond adds a little something extra to a look. Or if you’re feeling really festive, apply an entire row of gems to the tip of one or all ten of your nails for a bejeweled look that will have you doing the princess wave every chance you get!
Holiday hoopla – If you’ve got holiday spirit to spare, try matching that with your nails. Painting tiny little wreaths in the center of each nail or using an applique of whatever your favorite holiday symbol is will show the world you came to celebrate! Or you can usher in your New Year with a blast of fireworks designed in a medley of your favorite colors!

There are so many great ways to express yourself through your style, but don’t forget to include your nails. If you’re a fan of creating signature looks that tell the world exactly who you are and love changing it up with different looks, you might be a perfect candidate for a career in the exciting world of beauty!
