Last year, I had my first acrylics set and even though I gave my nails a break, I’m already looking around for nail colors for winter, because I really want to get a new set of acrylics. Whether you have your own beautiful nails or, just like me, wearing acrylics, I’m sharing 20 amazing nails for winter so you can go and do your nails right away! 


One of the things I like most about getting acrylics is that you go to the salon and you have a ton of nail colors you can choose from. Then someone is going to pamper you for like 1,5 hours and you’ll walk out with gorgeous nails. The cherry on top of the cake: they’ll stay on perfectly for 3.5 á 4 weeks! I’m not here to sell acrylics and I know there are a couple of cons too, but if you’re doubting about getting them: please just try it! Make sure you go to a good salon though. 

When you’re not into acrylics or you just want to paint yourself, I would recommend trying out ORLY. They sell tons of stunning colors, are vegan and cruelty-free! They even launch new color collections 6+ times per year which I think is awesome.

1. Dark Grey

I love this one for winter since it matches my sweaters and it’s just a stunning color. If you live in the UK or the Netherlands (or some other countries) it’ll probably remind you of the winter weather as well lol.

2. Light grey with silver

The combination of light grey with the silver glitters is stunning! I love how these are also perfect nails for Christmas but if you love a little sparkle, like me, at any time of the year it’s perfect for winter too.

3. Light blue, denim blue, and winter decorations

If you have a nail salon that also does cute designs, I think this one is so cute for winter! The little snowflakes and the sweater texture on the nails in combination with the light blue and denim blue is everything.

4. Taupe/Beige

I mean, a neutral nail is always a good idea. This is a stunning taupe/beige kind of color that looks perfectly natural. The last nail has a cute glitter detail design on it, which I think makes it more festive.

6. Matte Mauve

I love shiny nail polish but a matte one is catching my attention a lot lately. I love a mauve nail color so much and the matte makes it even more perfect. I definitely would wear this during wintertime (and all year round lol).

8. Black with a little rose gold glitter

Black during the winter is something I always like, but I’m too scared to wear it myself. The touch of rose gold glitters makes it a lot more wearable for me. Either way, I love how a black nail looks during the winter.
