Winter is a great time to be out and about in the cold. It’s also the season when you want to wear your best outfit, and that means stunning nails. But how do you make your nail polish stand out this winter? Here are 8 ways you can make sure your hands look amazing:
Make a statement with your nails
When choosing nail polish, it’s important to make sure that the shade you choose is appropriate for the situation. The same rule applies whether you’re painting your toes or running out of time on your hands: if it doesn’t match, don’t do it!
For example, if you’re wearing black leggings and a long-sleeved shirt, go with something bright but not neon yellow or orange. If you’re wearing jeans and t-shirts, go with dark colors like navy blue or deep red instead of light colors like pink or white.
And if you have long hair that tends to stay dry during winter months due to frequent trips outside in harsh weather conditions, then stick with colors that are good at hiding dirt while also retaining shine year round; these tend to include purples, blues, or greens plus neutrals such as beige or creamy whites
Choose your shade
The first step in making nail art look good is choosing a color that matches your outfit. A bold color will not only be hard to match, but it can also make you look like you have leprosy or some other disease that requires immediate medical attention and treatment.
A subtle shade of pink or blue will work better than an all-out neon green or orange. If you already know what kind of look works best for your wardrobe, check out our guide on how to find the right shade of polish!
If there’s one thing we’ve learned over time, it’s that when choosing shades for their nails, people tend to go overboard with their choices, and then end up frustrated when those colors don’t show up properly on their fingers due to unevenness in skin tones or hair types etcetera.
Get a matte top coat
Matte top coats are a great way to add depth and dimension to your nails. They’re also great for any look you want to achieve, whether it emphasizes color or one that emphasizes shape. A matte top coat can make even the simplest nail look sophisticated, so try pairing it with some bold colors to give yourself an edgy twist on the usual winter looks!
Get a gel-like manicure
Gel-like manicures are a great way to make your nails stand out during the winter. These types of manicures last longer than regular polish, which means you can go about your daily activities without worrying about smudges or chips in a matter of days. Gel also offers durability and ease of removal, making it an ideal choice for people who don’t want long-term damage to their hands’ appearance.
However, gel manicures are not without their drawbacks: they tend to be more expensive than regular manicures, so if you’re just looking for something quick and simple it might not be worth it in your situation. Any time spent getting a gel mani mustn’t be wasted. A good rule of thumb is using acetone wipes between coats so that any mistakes aren’t permanent!
Use nail wraps
Nail wraps are a great way to add a bit of fun to your manicure. They’re easy to apply and can be removed and reused, so they’re perfect for those who want to make their nails stand out without committing to an extra manicure session or purchasing expensive nail polish.
If you’re unfamiliar with what nail wraps are, they’re strips of paper (or plastic) that wrap around each finger’s nail bed before applying polish. The paper protects the natural nail from drying out while providing flexibility and grip when applying polish.
Glitter is a great way to add some sparkle to your nails. It looks good on all skin tones, and it can be used as an accent nail or all over the nail. The best part is that you can use glitter as an accent nail or even add it on top of matte polish! If you want to try something new for this winter season, adding some glitter may just be what you need.
Try metallic shades
Metallic nail polish is a great way to add a little shine to your nails. Metallic nail polish is best for special occasions, like parties and weddings. However, you can use it as an accent nail by painting one or two contrasting colors on your natural nails and then adding metallic shades over them. The effect will be subtle but noticeable!
Metallic shades are perfect for adding dimension and depth to any color combination you want and they’re especially popular this time of year when people are looking for something different from their usual look.
Choose which type of manicure you want
Before you get started on your mani, make sure you choose which type of manicure you want for this season and make sure it goes with the outfit you will be wearing. Remember to get a solid base coat and then apply two coats if you are planning on wearing a color other than black or gray, but those colors look good with just one coat.
If your skin tone is dark, avoid choosing bright colors like reds and oranges; they’ll look too harsh against your complexion. On the other hand, if it’s light-skinned, try using pale pinks as opposed to bright pastels. They will work better in blending out any blemishes that may appear during winter months when we are all extra pale!
The best way to make sure your nails look great is to practice good nail hygiene and keep them looking their best. It’s also important to take care of your hands and nails so they don’t break or chip easily.
