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

Zooey Deschanel's tuxedo nailsZooey wore a tuxes on her fingertips to the Golden Globes!
 

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 nail polishpistachio polish: fresh and fun!
 

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.

Dear seraphine10 Tell your mum how you feel about going back to New Zealand for a holiday. Do you worry that there will be earthquakes while you're away? Sit her down in private and tell her how you feel about it. Maybe if she see's how scared you are of going back she won't make you. Just tell her how you really feel about it because earthquakes at 7 years old is traumatizing. Hope this helps.  ​- The Fabulous Unicorn
