NAIL TRENDS: COLD WEATHER NAIL ART IDEAS
Sometimes a touch of sparkle is all you need. Try a silver-dipped look by applying glitter polish to your tips, and gradually fading it into a bare half moon. Start the manicure with a clear base coat, and after your glitter polish is dry, finish it off with one layer of top coat to seal in your wintry look.
Jewel-toned matte nails to match a jewel-toned party dress. To get this look, start off with a clear base coat on each nail. Once the base is dry, choose one colour and paint two of your nails, and use another colour to paint the fourth nail. For the fifth nail, place a sticker vertically down the middle of your nail and slightly over to one side. Paint one side of the nail using a black polish and the other side of the nail using the second colour. Remove the sticker. Once the polish is dry, use a glitter gold polish to draw a line where the two colours meet. Finish off with a clear top coat on each nail.
Go halfsies with a half black nail, with its own horizontal glitter ombre. To get this look start off as always – with a clear base coat. Once it dries, place a sticker horizontally down the bottom half of your nail. Paint the the top half with a black polish, then once it dries, paint over one half of the black polish with a gold glitter of your choice. Remove the sticker and you'll be left with a perfect half-manicure!
As of late, chrome nails have been popping up everywhere. Get the look by heading over to the nearest salon, or getting your hands on some easy-to-apply chrome nail wraps! Either way, this look is one you'll definitely want to try for the winter season.
Soft pastels paired with classic gold hues make a gorgeous winter combination. Wear the two colours on the diagonal for a sweet but graphic design. Get this look by placing a nail sticker diagonally down one half of your nail, then use a polish of your choice to paint the other half. Once the polish dries, repeat using a second polish of your choice and finish off with a clear top coat!
