As we all hunker down for an inevitable months-long slog of sweatpants, a new rotation of winter nail ideas are here to break up the monotony. This year especially, which will go down in the history books as a certifiable dumpster fire, nails are proving to be more of a delight than ever. Who among us hasn’t experienced the momentary joy of looking down in between endless Zooms or yet another round of hand-washing to delight in a fun print, a hint of shimmer, or a pop of our favorite color peering back at us?
This season the biggest nail designs are all about maximum fun with minimal work. Sure, there are the beautiful deep greens and dark red nail polishes that always trend this time of year. But there are also plenty of unexpected winter manicures you can easily paint from the comfort of your couch (preferably with a glass of wine and something feel-good pulled up on Netflix). Think glittery shades that look just as good with sweats as they do with the LBD collecting dust in your closet, or quirky stickers that give the look of nail art without any of the fuss.
So no matter your taste or dexterity, scroll on for the coolest winter nail ideas that’ll take you through the holidays and finally into 2021. Cheers to that.
