Winter nail trend – Colorful French manicure
Forget the classic nail polishes that you use for a French manicure. Take nail polishes in a color that you like and create a colorful French manicure. On the runways we’ve seen combinations of maroon with gold tip and royal blue with silver tip. For example, paint your nails with dark red nail polish, and paint the tip of your nails with metallic gold color.
Winter nail trend – Half moon manicure
Paint your nails in one color and leave them to dry completely. Then take another nail polish with contrasting color and create a small half moon at the root of your nail (near your cuticle where your natural lunula is). For example, paint your nails with nude creamy color and create the half moons with black nail polish for more dramatic look, or glittery gold nail polish for more festive look.
Winter nail trend – Accent nail
Paint all your nails in one color, but leave the ring finger bare. Paint the ring finger with a different color that goes well with the other color. You can also apply some sparkles or beads on your ring finger to make it more interesting.
Winter nail trend – All nails in a different color
Make your manicure more interesting by painting your nails in different colors. Choose your nail polish colors carefully and make sure that they go well together.
