This Hot and Smoky Nail-Art Trend Will Warm You Right Up This Winter

  • As winter approaches, the smoky nail-art trend is proving to be a popular choice.
  • The edgy manicure design incorporates swirls of black, white, and gray.
  • You can add glitter accents or sparkle to dress up a smoky manicure.

There are classic nail-art designs you can wear all year, like the french manicure, but other styles are a bit more seasonal, like the smoky nail-art trend, which was practically made for winter and fall. Before you tell yourself that black and white nail-art designs like this are only for Halloween, think again. This foggy design is perfect for someone looking to add a bit of an edge to their look.

Celebrity manicurist Elle Gerstein, who's worked with stars like Blake Lively, Chrissy Teigen, and Gigi Hadid, recently created a cool, "smoking hot" manicure using swirly designs of gray and white on a black base, proving this look is about to be everywhere this winter. Black nail polish is already a staple in our winter nail wardrobe, so why not jazz it up a bit? You can go as bold as you'd like or lighten up the design with accents of glitter. (Adding some sparkle is always a good idea, if you ask us.) Get inspired for your own smoky manicure ahead.
