What’s more fun than getting in the holiday spirit with a fun new nail design? Winter is upon us. That means more time snuggling up beside the fireplace, looking for any activity to pass the time that doesn’t involve shoveling snow. Nail art, for those of you that still do your own nails, can be an excellent way to while away the hours while freezing temperatures and thigh-high snow drifts keep you hostage inside your house.

Winter nail art isn’t all snowflakes and candy cane stripes. Well, a lot of it is but cool neutral tones and deep warm colors can be just as festive. This article with cool photos will inspire your inner nail girl and have you searching for your nail polish in no time. Let’s get started.
