During winter, everything is gray damp and can be bleak. One way I love to brighten up my winter is with new nail trends. Here are a few of my favorites.
- Gray Nails—Gray nails compliment every skin tone and are neutral so they go with every look. Some of my favorite gray polishes are Forever 21’s overcast skies polish, which is a light matte gray; RGB Steel, which is a darker gray; and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Grease Lightning.
- Pop Culture Nail Decals—These are my favorites. You can find so many quality nail decals on Etsy for under ten dollars and they liven up any plain manicure. Some of my favorite include crying Kim Kardasian, Anne Boelynn, Frida Kahlo, Marie Antoinette (both pre—and post-beheading), and Justin Timberlake through the 2000s.
- Nail Tape—One of the simplest nail art looks to do yourself is nail tape. The tape comes in either matte or shiny and in many different colors. You simply paint your nails, let them dry, then cut and apply the tape in whatever pattern you desire: from stripes to plaid. You can even apply the tape as a colored french tip.
