Five Cute Winter Nail Colors

Is it just me, or is there something about having your nails done that makes you feel put together? Even if I don’t have time to curl my hair or put on a full face of makeup, I love a fresh manicure. During the winter especially, it’s so fun to try all of the rich, deep tones of the winter season.

I’m partial to OPI nail colors; I prefer the slightly thicker consistency of the lacquer. Plus, they have the most fun names, don’t they? These are five cute winter nail colors to try:


5 Cute Winter Nail Colors:

Midnight in Moscow

A really beautiful deep brown with flecks of very subtle red sparkle. I’ve owned this color for going on ten years–so much so that I’ve bought multiple bottles in case it becomes unavailable. The flecks of gold make for a really pretty touch to an otherwise dark polish.

Mrs. O’Leary’s BBQ

A super deep blue-red that looks great on many skin tones. I especially love it on ladies with really pale skin–very cool and chic with a clean, short nail.

Yes, My Condor Can Do

From this fall’s Peru collection, I’ve been wearing this brownish-plum on repeat throughout fall. Looks great on any skin tone, and is a really rich and beautiful tone for the winter months.

Lincoln Park at Midnight

A deep plum (almost looks black on the nails) for days when you’re feeling like you want that uber chic, super dark nail. There’s something so cool about this color, and it’s one that I’ve gone back to for many years.

Como Se Llama

A muted red-brown. Looks so flattering on ladies with medium and tan skin tones. I’ve been wearing this color a lot throughout the fall and holiday seasons. It’s a nice option when you’re looking for a red that isn’t too red.

  • Exactly one week ago, @attybernard and I went on our last coffee date before spending the rest of the day cooking and cleaning in preparation for our little girl. Something about that day just made us feel like she wasn’t going to be long. The very next day she joined our world, and these have been the best 6 days of my entire life. 💕 #newmom #newparents #newbornbaby #pittsburghphotographer #thehappynow #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese
  • Settling into our family of three, and this guy is the best teammate a girl could ask for. I never knew I could feel so much love—I could burst. #newparents  #thehappynow #livebeautifully #postitfortheaesthetic #inspiremyinstagram #chooselovely #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #feelfreefeed #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese #postitfortheaesthetic
  • This girl entered our worlds yesterday afternoon—exactly two weeks ahead of schedule and right at the end of the Pats game—just letting mommy and daddy know who’s gonna be in charge of the schedule from now on. #newbabygirl
  • I hear we have some snow coming Pittsburgh, friends! 💕 Am I the only weirdo who is actually excited about this? You can find me in all the cozy sweaters and blankets, snuggled up on the couch. 😍 #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers
  • I finally got a vanity at age 31. I never knew what I was missing! ☺️ #husbandwin #ikeahack #affordabledecor
  • Hard to believe how soon our little one will be joining us. Feeling all sorts of emotions, but mostly ready to meet her. I’m curious—any other moms to be out there? If so, when are you due? And those of you who are already moms, what words of wisdom would you share with those of us about to become mamas, too? #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers #37weeks 📷: @julieanne514
