Halloween (and all that spooky nail art) has officially come and gone. Now, the most pressing conundrum we’re facing is finding the best winter nail colors to decorate our mani-ready tips with. (Kidding, but we do take our nail game very seriously.) Of course, you have your demure, moody shades such as wine, burgundy, white, and navy that feel quintessentially winter, but this season, we’re playing at something different—waves of shimmering metallics in rich hues of gold, silver, and rose; gemstone hues of ruby, sapphire, and emerald; and if you’re more of a neutral kind of person, chocolates, creams, and candied pinks galore.
Ahead, we’re sharing 15 of the best nail colors for winter we consistently applaud (and recommend!) here at WWW HQ. In fact, they’re so pretty we know you’ll be receiving compliments in droves all season long. Keep scrolling! Your nails are craving these magical winter shades.
