Awesome Nail Trends For The Coming Winter

As we approach the end of summer, many of us will be looking at refreshing our wardrobes for the coming autumn and winter. But don’t forget that it isn’t just your clothing that needs an update - your nails need a lot more care and attention over the winter months than they do in the summer. WIth this in mind, let’s take a look at some of the best winter nail trends to look out for to ensure you are looking great, right to the end of your extremities. 
Dry brushing effects
Dry brushing is a technique used by the kind of people that paint models, and the fashion industry has finally taken notice. It’s a simple process that involves using your standard nail varnish as a base, but then adding a dry brush of another complementary or contrasting colour. To dry brush, all you need to do is load up your applicator with polish, and use a tissue or piece of fabric to blot out the moisture. When you apply it, the polish will create an entirely unique finish that can look stunning. 
Interesting neutrals
It might be time to ditch all those bright and outlandish colours for a while. Neutrals are back in a big way this winter, so look around for matte finishes, perfect nudes, and consider mixing colours such as sand, khakis, and golds. You don’t have to stick to one colour, either - try applying a different neutral to each fingernail for a punky, alternative look. 

Chess board
If you have a lot of time on your hands - or your nails, in this case - then why not go for the chess board look? Try applying contrasting squares to your falsies - it can create a stunning effect that won’t go unnoticed. This particular style looks great with metallics or pastels alike, as long as you make sure the contrast is sharp enough. 
Tipped nails
Tipped nails are going to be huge this coming autumn and winter. Choose your base colour and then use a darker shade at the top of the nail. You can blend in with dry brushing (see above for details) or even create incredible patterns -try using angular diagonals for a really interesting take on this technique. 
Metallic nails are another option to watch out for. Golds, silvers, and bronzes are going to be back in a big way, so head to your local beauty shop and get them before they run out. You don’t have to go the whole hog, either - try using hints of golds for a glitter-like effect, and you can even fleck over a strong, dark colour for a more glamorous look.
Light on dark
Finally, don’t be afraid to go darker than you have ever dared before. While many dark varnishes promise a lot but are actually kind of dull once it is on, a little creativity can really make a difference. Little white or silver designs on each nail can offset the darkness entirely, and give you a completely unique, home made look.
