30+ On Trend Winter Nail Designs

Winter is coming! And so is the time to bring out your faux fur coat, stock up on wood for your fireplace, respond to all those Christmas party invites and of course rock this year’s winter wonderland nails.

This year’s winter nails are all about the icy chrome look, sparkling whites, icy blues, elegant navies, and cute little crystal touches. We have included this year’s trendiest winter nails to inspire you for this year’s winter season along with some of the timeless classics. Deep red and gold is a winter look that is here to stay. But this year, try mixing this look up with some extra glitter and some extra length.

Whilst we will always be big fans of coffin nails, it is the almond nail shape that is taking center stage this year. This elegant shape is one that looks gorgeous both long and short and can be dressed up or down. Scroll down to see some of this year’s best almond nail looks for winter. And because we couldn’t forget about the coffin, we have included some breathtaking coffin nail designs fit for the ice queen herself.

For a simple but classy look that is more suited to the more hands-on ice queens, we have included some of the most beautiful short nails for winter. So, be sure not to miss out on these beauts near the end.

Winter Wonderland Nails

Winter Wonderland nails are all about icy blues and whites. Whilst you will definitely get that winter wonderland look by adding snowy-themed designs like snowflakes and snow to your nails, this look can be achieved in more subtle ways also. Icy polka dots can give the impression of snow whilst remaining subtle. If subtle isn’t your thing then load up your lengthy claws with icy gems like in the long ice-blue winter nails at the end of this section.

Winter Almond Nails

Here they are, this winter’s stars of the show are the almond nails. With almond nails sometimes the simpler the better. Painting your nails in a single color can look incredibly elegant, especially when color matched with your winter outfit or winter makeup. Combing gloss with matte nails is still a strong look this winter and looks great in dark blue.
