These 10 winter-chic nail colors will have you heading to your manicurist before you hit the slopes for a seasonally appropriate polish job.
Orage, Chanel ($27). chanel.com
Somewhere between navy and black, Chanel’s beautiful Orage nail color is an eye-catching shade to turn to when you’re not quite ready for full-on black nails.
Vert, RGB Cosmetics ($18). rgbcosmetics.com
This subdued army green shade is another great way to go dark without committing to black polish.
Noir Satin, Givenchy Beauty ($20). net-a-porter.com
When nothing else can get you out of your funk, bring out the ultimate hue for a winter mani. Givenchy’s true black polish feels as luxurious as it looks—just one coat required.
Bitter Buddhist, Smith & Cult ($18). birchbox.com.
Bring out your inner ice princess with Smith & Cult’s celadon polish. Birchbox’s Rachel Jo Silver tells us it’s her winter version of turquoise—edgy and neutral without being a pastel.
$12 Latte, Trust Fund Beauty ($15). trustfundbeauty.com
The name of this polish says it all: Only an expertly made latte will cheer you up when there’s a 90% chance of snow, and this alluring brown hue will remind you of your favorite hot beverage every time you look down at your nails.
413 BLKR, Nars ($19). narscosmetics.com
This commanding midnight blue polish with a glossy finish makes the wearer look put together even when sporting snow boots.
Smokey Nail, Treat Collection ($20). treatcollection.com
If you get giddy when snow is in the forecast, discreetly show your enthusiasm with two coats of this semi-transparent black polish featuring a little bit of sparkle.
Diabolique, RMS Beauty ($15). rmsbeauty.com
Do you usually go straight for fire-engine red? This winter try a darker, just-as-stunning pigment like this deep burgundy.
Greige, LVX ($16). shoplvx.com
Greige—when gray met beige—is the new black. This wintry neutral embodies storm clouds and overcast skies, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop wearing it after all the snow melts.
Stormy Weather, Deborah Lippmann ($18). barneys.com
If the sky were this color we’d be worried, but on nails, this modern granite shade looks striking. We’d expect nothing less from a polish called Stormy Weather created in collaboration with designer Narciso Rodriguez.
