Even if you spend most of the winter snuggling up, there are still parts of you worth flaunting all year long. And let’s not fail to recall about that moment of pure joy when you slip your hands out of your gloves to flaunt your fabulous new nail polish. So, now that fall is over, what are the trending winter nail colors and trends that should be on your radar?

From rich, jewel-toned hues to frosty snowflakes, winter nails aren’t following one set of rules at the moment. We’re still glimpsing a lot of nail art, but it’s less on the cutesy side and more on structural side . For instance, as per celebrity nail artist Brittney Boyce, founder of Nails of LA, instead of going for a dramatic candy-cane look, opt for a “classy, angled half-French in a sultry red, or go for a half-white nail with a diagonal cut across that looks chic and elevated.” You also won’t find just the classic wintery shades this 2022—you might see pastels on the sophisticated nails. If we had to sum up winter 2021/2022 in a word, it would be mixture of unexpected and bold.

We asked celebrity nail artists and other experts for their advice on what’s trending right now so you can take your manicure to the top level.
