Cosy cardigans to endless pumpkin spiced lattes, winter brings with its many irresistible treats. It's also one of those seasons that offers multiple elements to take fashion inspiration from. Especially when you're going to get a fresh set of nails done. Bookmark our favourite winter manicure designs to take to your manicurist next. 

It's not Santa's little helpers but the absolute stand-up fellow, the snowman, that can keep you company this season. Get some snow-clad details into the mix and add colour with Christmas trees to make the holiday season your default mood. 

Blue manicures are a winter staple and a 2024 update to them would be chrome swirls that make the design even dressier. Ideal for almond shaped nails that are on the longer side, get your manicurist to do a polygel base for a softer bend. 

Minimal stacked lines are a good way to get your nails done without having to commit to a full colour fill. Recreate the dreamy aesthetic of winter with silver glitter painted on a creamy, nude base. 

Chrome tips were everywhere in 2023 and the trend is sure to carry on in 2024 as well. Opt for metallic shades to get the winter aesthetic on point. 

Remember the winter elements we spoke of? Well snowflake detailing and cardigan patterns sit right at the top. Combine the two to create a manicure design worth sharing on your Instagram feed.

What better way to recreate wintery skies than go for ombré fades? Take it a step further by adding chrome swirls and placing dainty butterfly on the tip for added drama.

Simple yet effective, glittery and reflective manicures are ideal for recreating the frosted, dream-like aesthetic of the winter season. Short or long, this manicure style is versatile enough to suit all lengths and shapes.
