Winter Nail Polish Trends

Jan 26, 2012

Painting your nails isn’t just fun, it’s fashionable. If you need a “helping hand” to figure out what this season’s nail trends are, we’ve got the breakdown on what's hot this winter. Make your fingers look fantastic with Kidzworld's 2012 winter nail trends!

Dressed Up Digits

Actress Zooey Deschanel was dressed to the nines at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards, from her toes to her fingertips! Zoey wore an evening dress, but her nails were suited up in a classy tuxedo design! And she’s not the only celeb to suit up - R&B star Rihanna was also spotted with tuxedo fingertips in her new video for “You Da One”.

What You Need: White nail polish, black nail polish, toothpicks, and patience!

Pistachio Pretty

Pistachio makes for a perfect everyday polish. With lots of greeny earth tone colors flooding stores this season, we think pistachio is the cutest of the bunch.

Our Fave: OPI’s Damone Roberts 1968 limited edition polish, but don’t worry if you can’t find it in stores, this color is going to be everywhere!

Sparkle and Shine

Get ready to rock some disco digits when you go out this winter because chunky glitter polish is in! You’ll feel like you have a party in the palm of your hand, and it doesn’t stop there. You can layer it over your fave color or use it to make a going-out ombre effect (don’t know what ombre is? Keep reading!)

Our Fave: Wet n’ Wild’s Ice Baby polish can help you look like a confetti queen without breaking the bank!

Natural Beauty

Nude nails are a classy and easy choice. Almost every brand of nail polish carries a wide range of beige and neutral colors to suit every skin tone. If you find beige a little boring, dress it up with a fun nail art print, like flowers or cheetah spots!

Our Fave: We love Love and Beauty’s Oh My Nude polish, from Forever 21.

Tangerine Dream

tangerine nail polishtangerine tips are truly terrific!
 

If pistachio and nude are too tame for you, never fear! Tangerine is here! It may be cold outside, but you can bring the sunset to your nailbed by sporting this sunny citrus color. Tangerine not to your taste? Try out hot pink or fire engine red instead!

Our Fave: OPI’s Totally Tangerine is perfect for fruit fanatics!

Ombre and Awesome

ombre nailsombre can take some time to perfect, but you have all winter to get it right!
 

Ombre nails are when your polish looks like it fades from dark to light, starting at the the tip and going toward the nail bed. Ombre has been all over fashion blogs and runways this winter, and just takes a little patience. This is a great nail art trend to practice at a sleepover with all your friends - you’ll be ombre experts by the end of the night!

What You Need: A light color, a dark color and a clear polish.

I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
