I love changing up my look with a beautiful manicure. I am loving all of the winter manicures I’m seeing on Instagram. I know that not everyone likes the same old red and green colors or want Santa Claus all over their nails.
I found some stunning winter manicures that will give you some inspiration for an elegant look this winter.

Stunning Winter Manicures
To start off our list of beautiful winter manicures, I loved this pink and silver look. It is such a pretty combination and would be great for a holiday party. To create this look, she used OPI polish in Shorts Story, It’s Frosty Outside, and Alpine Snow.
I really like this combo of mauve and gold sparkle. You can use a nail art pen to draw any kind of festive decorations or just leave them plain. She used OPI My Favorite Ornament, It’s So Easy Stripe Rite in White, and Zoya Brigitte.
Can you tell I love manicures with a glitter accent nail? This one caught my eye. She uses ella+mila nail polish in Mauve Over and the glitter polish is Colores de Carol in Bling.
I love this festive Jingle Bells manicure. You can go here for the full step by step tutorial. I think they look amazing! They used Cheryl (Boho Glam) and Rosaline (Bombshell) from Julep to create this look.
More Winter Nail Art
I love the blue and gray together. The little snowflake details are adorable! She didn’t list what nail colors she used to create this look.
I wouldn’t normally think that a color this dark would be good for a winter look but it looks great when paired with a light blue color. She used OPI Alcatraz Rocks.
These turned out so pretty. I love how the glitter adds a lovely pop of color. She used Candied Apple Polish in Marshmallow World and Drip Drop Nail Paint in My Girl.

This manicure reminds me of the sun shining off of the snow. So pretty! She used Glisten and Glow Stuck on Blu and HK Girl. She also used Loaded Lacquer’s 40 Below and No Shoes.
This dark blue is gorgeous. You could even use a gold for an accent nail if you don’t have a nail stamp to make the design. The color is Sophia (Bombshell).
I’m a huge fan of nail wraps like these from Jamberry. They make giving yourself a manicure so easy! These are the Champagne Frost wraps and the accent nail is Toasted.
I love this color green. It’s not your typical Christmas green but the nail art makes it very festive. She doesn’t list what colors she used to create the look.
I hope these winter manicures have given you some great inspiration to do your own nail art.
If you have a favorite winter manicure let us know in the comments. I’d love to get some more ideas. It’s a very frugal way to change up your look.
