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 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 Dish-It In The Forums

While engagement isn't illegal for juveniles, marriage is as you can already tell. Judging by your feelings, I don't think the relationship will last long enough for him to be able to wait. I heard some courts will allow it, depending on location. Knowing whether her engagement is okay is a tricky thing. She seems pretty confident in the relationship. As for your own feelings, how well do you know him? Do you have any knowledge about him outside their love life? Do her parents know anything about him? If you don't now the answers, don't be afraid to ask them to her or her parents. I'm also a 16-year-old girl and I don't feel comfortable with it. Many young adults have a hard time understanding the transition from  teen to adult, but if he's put his problems on her, that's a bad sign. I don't think 5 months is long enough in my opinion and I think this could lead to making bad habits in a relationship. I appreciate that you're trying to help your friend be safe. Hopefully some of her closest people will help her with you. They don't necessarily have to steer her against him, but they should help guide her into deciding what's best ad how to carry on from that.

Do your parents know her parents? Maybe you could get your parents to speak to hers. Or if not, maybe tell her parents yourself that you're concerned. Try speaking to her and making sure she's 100% sure about what she's doing?

So last year my friend got engaged at the age of sixteen to a guy of twenty-one and they only dated for 5 months at the time. I'm afraid she's making a mistake. They're still together, but her guy seems like he has a temper and might get abusive in the future.  What should I do?
