There they are; 10 tiny canvases just waiting to be painted. When it comes to nail art, there’s a never-ending source of inspiration. We’ve put together a list of favorite nail designs for winter – some are DIY and others are just for “oh my!”
Blue ombre glitter via Buzzfeed
This manicure has it all! Winter blues and whites, ombre, glitter, and let’s face it…we just might be able to do it ourselves! The colors make us feel chilly and ready for winter. We can’t wait to try this one!
Dogs in a forest via Nailphotos by Lani
The detail on these nails is amazing! We love the color combination and wintery feel. Brrrrr!
Winter Forest via Lacquerstyle
It’s a hand-painted winter forest on someone’s fingertips. All we can say is…wow!
Cozy Hearts via 10nails
Curl up in front of the fireplace and get cozy because it doesn’t get any sweeter than this! The design reminds us of our favorite childhood sweaters, and the hearts make us smile.
Golden Snow via Goose’s Glitter
We’re loving this gold-and-white combination. The white polish is called “Marshmallow” and that puts us in the mood for our favorite winter snack…smores!
Let it snow via Glitter and Nails
It looks like a glistening snow globe on each finger! Go casual with jeans and a sweater or classy and dazzling paired with your little black dress.
Penguins and Snowflakes via Beauty School Dropouts
We adore these little penguins! We’ve named them Tutu and Lola. There’s a great tutorial for this one and it looks like we may just be able to do it!
Jelly “Snow Flakes” Sandwich via Nailartitudesdeclaire
We love these nails because they feel so delicate…just like a snowflake. The tutorial is in French, which means we don’t know where the “sandwich” part comes in. Ah well, c’est la vie!
Cozy Red Winter via We Heart It
These red-and-white nails make us think of big, cozy sweaters. Just picture yourself wrapping these lovely nails around a cup of hot cocoa while sitting by a fire. We love them!
Snowy the Snowman via Paulina’s Passions
Snowmen are the perfect bit of whimsy and childhood that can last all winter long. We love these playful nails with the wintery blue background and white snow banks.
