Winter’s coming round again girls, and as the days will be shorter there’s even more reason to stand out from the crowd, give yourself confidence and catch the eye of that guy. The colder weather gives us more time to think about how we make an impression, and as we know, your nails are now as important as hair as your crowning glory. Winter nail colours are traditionally brighter, putting some excitement into cosy days. Here’s a few tips to what’s trending in nail colours this coming season, get your nail care sets ready!
The fashion for nude clothes and accessories, made famous by Lady Gaga and other celebrities this year, is set to continue into winter. Not bright you might say? True- but nude gives you a sophisticated and relaxed look and still attracts the eye. The beige look can also be mixed with black if you want to make more of a statement.
How about silver? This really is a standout and shows that you know who you are. Metallic shines and reflects inner confidence. Gold is always a contender, but this year think silver if you want to be a little different.
Then of course there’s red- classic as seen in Mad Men. It really is a winner, and you can’t go wrong with the red. Once signifying danger, it’s now dependable and very attractive, feminine and womanly. For an adventurous new direction, why not raspberry? Fruity and fulsome, this gives a warm feeling in winter.
Blue? This is the legendary 60′s rock chick look, raunchy but also chic, think Vanessa Paradis, at home in the club in the early hours or a cafe next to the Seine. It really is back this winter, and some say that blue is becoming the new red in terms of classic status.
Then there’s chocolate, preferably dark. Also warm and inviting, let your cuticles melt in the eyes of that handsome guy. Fun, girly and yet self-assured, the darker the chocolate the better. On the other hand, there’s dark violet for nails that really make a statement and show that you’re on the trend.
Burgundy has been popular on the catwalks this summer and autumn, and this continues into winter nails. Rich and exuding depth, try pairing it with matching lipstick for that co-ordinated accessorised look. Sleek and understated, and great for evenings out.
For a colourful and reassuringly healthy-looking set of nails, try pale cranberry, much less full than classic red. It shouts vitality and soft-spoken stamina during the cold days and nights. Also great for this reason is burnt orange, a sexy look when the leaves are blowing on the ground.
For a more neutral look, try grey. This doesn’t have to be dull, especially if you choose a darker shade, and can be only just removed from silver in shine. It shows a woman who is very in control, and could be called a power shade.
So whether you are going to be painting the town red, luxuriating in emerald green, shining with silver, feeling cosy in dark chocolate, getting fruity with raspberry, burning in orange,or going nude, make this winter your best yet and let your nails make that effortless statement for you. Feel good from your cuticles to the tips of your toes and enjoy those winter parties and cosy girls’ nights in!
