black nail polish


Do you want to channel your inner Wednesday Addams? Then, black is the perfect shade to wear! This shade is a classic and won’t go out of style anytime soon.



white nail polish


It’s not really surprising to find white as a trendy shade this winter. Many fashionistas favor this color as it is a sweet reminder of snow.  Also, it’s the ideal color if you want a sleek and clean look for your nails. For more inspiration, just look at the nails of the Duchess of Sussex during her engagement announcement. Neat, chic, and classy!

Metallic tones

This winter, disco era is back! Indeed, silver, gold, and chrome variations are all over social media. You may even find unexpected shades such as metallic lilac.

What if you don’t like nail art but still enjoy having fun with your nails? Then, try these shades! You can easily recreate them at home. Also, you’ll have your Beyoncé-like moment – in the 2000s, Beyoncé really liked golden hues on her nails!



red nail polish


From Rita Hayworth to Lana del Rey, many vintage and current celebrities favored this nail polish color. Red shades are classic and chic, and won’t go out of style anytime soon. They also look great on any skin color!

Also, red is the right color to start the new year as it supposedly brings good fortune in other cultures (hello China!). For a more sophisticated look, you can rely on burgundy shades.



blue nail polish


Blue tones are very trendy this winter, whether they come up as midnight or baby blue. They are especially adapted during this winter, as their hues remind us of colder days. If you want more universal tones, turn to midnight blue. But if you want to stand out, then baby blue is the perfect shade for you!

Earthy tones

Normally, earthy tones are really popular during the fall season. But they are really making a grand entrance during this winter. Elegance, understatement and sleek finition are the main words associated with earthy tones.

Why don’t you try rusty reds or olive shades this winter? And for those who like unexpected twists, cerulean tones will be your best friends. The common point with all these colors is that they match any look. Consequently, you’d better give them a try.

Deep browns


deep brown nail polish


If you’re tired of wearing red or burgundy this winter, then try deep browns. Personally, this is my favorite shade because it’s classy, original, and it matches my skin tone. Therefore, I can wear it as a nude nail polish. I am especially a fan of Chanel Le Vernis 957 Impulsion and the Eternal Dark nude kit. I also liked Essie Truth or Dare. Unfortunately, Essie no longer sells this shade on the market. Such a shame!

Glazed donut

This nail polish color has been a major social media hit since at least the last six months. And it’s making its way this winter on our nails. One of the main advantage of glazed donut shade is that they suit all skin tones. Also, it gives you a soft, iridescent and shiny look without using glitter. If you never tried this color, give it a try this winter. You won’t be disappointed!

Bonus: French manicure

Well, French manicure is strongly coming back this winter. It’s just another testament to the general return of 90s trends in fashion and beauty. However, this classic color is excellent because it enables you to keep an elegant style on every occasion.

However, not everyone has the skills to this at home by oneself. That’s why I always recommend you get your French manicure done by your favorite beautician for a flawless result.

In conclusion, classic shades are the main nail polish color trends this winter. Nevertheless, I ask you to watch out for social media trends that can surprise you!

    Nail polish colors have certainly changed tremendously since I was a teenager and first started wearing nail varnish. It used to be predominantly red and oranges with shades of these. But nowadays there are so many exciting variations that include all the colors in the color palet. 

    If one wants to try an exotic color like the blues, is it best to have a professional appointment, or should one experiment at home? Thank you.

    I didn’t realize that browns and blacks were in this winter. The color seems so drab, and if I were to wear it, my hands would look so pasty/almost translucent. haha! I really like the blues, greens, and French manicures. The unfortunate thing, is I can’t seem to keep nail polish on my nails… Thanks so much for the post! I will need to send this to my best friend who loves staying up to date on makeup / nails.

    A nicely polished nail is one of those things that attracts me to a lady. Although most ladies do not take it to heart. But having a neatly shaped nail tells more about her neatness. It takes one with the extra sense of caution to take care of the nails. I love it when it comes out red and glittering.

    I’m really impressed with the layout and content of this website! The information provided on all subjects is well-written, comprehensive, and easy to understand. In particular, I love the article about bad skincare habits to kick in 2023 – there’s so much useful advice that can help anyone improve their skincare routine. For example, the section on how to apply moisturizer correctly and why it’s important was particularly informative; I learned that not only should you be sure to apply it right after cleansing, but that it helps protect skin from UV damage and keeps wrinkles at bay too. Additionally, the website offers great tips on how to prevent dryness by using humectants like hyaluronic acid, as well as daily sunscreen use for ultimate protection. All in all, this website provides a wealth of knowledge that can help anyone have healthier, glowing skin in no time!

    I’m always searching for new nail polish color trends as Winter is my favorite time of year. It’s good that your research helps avid nail trend shoppers like me determine that color and brand. Out of your guide, I like darker colors, so my choice is the browns. The dark colors can be styled with glitter art to match the holidays in the winter. I appreciate your nail polish guide and shared it with my social followers.

    One of the things that draws my attention to a woman is when she has well-kept nails that have been recently polished. Despite the fact that the vast majority of ladies don’t take it to heart. A nicely shaped nail, on the other hand, is a better indicator of her level of neatness. To properly care for one’s nails requires an individual with a heightened awareness of caution. I just adore it whenever it turns out crimson and sparkling. I want to express my gratitude for this great article. I will most certainly pass this information along.
