41 Ideas for Winter Nails to Do at Home or in the Salon

If we’re being honest, we’ve been thinking about winter nails since spring. There are just so many great nail trends out there that we could easily fill an entire calendar. And with 2021 almost behind us (insert huge sigh of relief here) and a new season nigh, we thought: Why not celebrate by sharing some of our favorite winter nail designs? After all, whether you’ve made a safe, triumphant return to your favorite nail tech’s station at the salon or you’re continuing to do our own manicures — we’d bet you’ve gotten really good at them — Instagram has offered endless creative inspiration for end-of-year looks.

Luckily, nail artists have been pumping out awe-inspiring nail looks like it’s no big deal (talent like this totally is, though), and we’ve been keeping tabs on all of the ones we want to try come wintertime. Ahead, you’ll find a diverse array of designs for every kind of aesthetic taste. There are festive jewel-toned creations, new and exciting ways to wear sparkle, astrology-themed art, ombré, and much more. (Plus, some insight and product suggestions from the creators themselves.)

Now, without further ado: All the winter nail inspiration you need to get you through the season.
