How can you not be completely taken with these gorgeous, glittery tones? Metallics have been spotted everywhere in fashion this winter season, but right now, it’s all about wearing these hues on your nails.
In my opinion, these shades are the best of both worlds: they bring the gorgeous sparkle of your favorite jewelry to your nails, allowing you to rock some bling without piling on the pieces. Plus, in these dark winter months, seeing a hint of sparkle as you glance down at your hands can give you a much-needed pick-me-up. Put blizzards and ice aside this winter and choose to sparkle instead!

This is one of the favourite and most picked up trend this Winter. The “greige” (a mixture of gray and beige) trend of this summer, has continued into the fall, and is still super popular this winter. This trend just won’t die, and for that, polish addicts are eternally grateful.
These colors are beautiful blends of taupe, brown, gray, and sometimes purple. They seem to be universally flattering, and are truly the new it neutral. Plus, they go with every outfit and are suitable for work or class during they day, while transitioning flawlessly into night. These polish hues are definitely here to stay!
3. Super Dark, Almost Black

Dark nail paints have always been the colour of winter, but what’s different this year is that those dark colors are super dark, and crazily close to black. The most-worn ones seem to be deep plum, dark graphite, and rich navy.
There are so many ways to wear this trend: You can basically pick any color and then find its deepest version! If The shades above not your style, you can try a deep red wine color, or a blue-green variation. If you’re feeling extra crazy, spring for some glitter or iridescence! This trend is incredibly versatile and that’s what makes it so great.
4. Icy Blues

This will be the most unexpected trend for this winter season, but it’s surprisingly awesome. While blue may not be the most popular nail color on the market, this season it’s making a strong comeback.
Ice blue nail polish is a fun and unpredictable look that will definitely set you apart from the crowd. I mean, how fun is it to wear a bright, shimmery color in the dreary winter months? Break the rules, and wear one of these blues next time!
