19 Winter Nail Designs That Are Heating Up This Season

  • There are a handful of winter nail designs to inspire your next manicure.
  • As the weather gets colder, it's fun to celebrate with winter nails.
  • No matter your style, you'll find winter nail art that's perfect for you.

This year's biggest winter nail designs span more than just dark, moody colors and holiday-themed drawings (although we guarantee you'll be seeing a lot of those, too). Instead, prepare to see some abstract shapes, highly reflective polish colors, optical illusions, and of course, new twists on the classic french manicure — plus a whole lot more.

Maybe it's all of the social media scrolling we've been doing as of late, or maybe it's because we want to start of 2023 with a bang, but this year's winter nails will be unlike anything you've ever seen before. To get the scoop on what to expect out of this upcoming season, we talked to a handful of experts, and they all agreed: the styles dominating winter trends will be all about pushing limits and getting creative.

So sit back, relax, and get ready to plan your next manicure appointment — or DIY nail session — as we break down the top winter nail designs for 2023 ahead.
