Once we bid adieu to warm days greeting the frosty winter, all those iridescent flowers, tweeting birdies and verdurous atmosphere are instantly consigned to oblivion. Now time is ripe for all those winter-worthy snowflakes, bare trees, Christmas and New Year celebrations; accordingly red, white and green shades come out on top these days. Just like it is with the fashion world being full of knitted Christmas sweaters or beanies with snowflakes, Christmas Reindeer and snowman motifs on them, nail art designs have also gone all winter-y and somehow frosty. We are now more than keen to share with you these 12 winter-ready nail art designs for every skill level, among which you will find different episodes of winter reflected.
Whenever you are pumped about to take a paper and sketch a house with a lamp burning with a yellow flame inside, or a common snowman or maybe some soft snowflakes falling down, put aside the paper and try to do the same on your fingernails. You do not need to be a super talented painter or a watercolorist to bring these winter-ready nail art designs into life. What you need is to acquire a couple of thin detailing brushes, nail polishes and acrylic paints of different vibrant shades and a little bit of patience, really.
1. Funny Cartoon Nails
If you opt for this winter nail art design, you are definitely endeavoring to bring back the sweet childhood. Here you will need acrylic paints of red, blue, white and yellow colors. Coat all the nails with Serenity blue nail polish and start painting funny figures as if escaped from a cartoon. All the images like the hugging cats, or a snowman and a dog happily talking to each other, as well as a dressed-in-red smiling bear have one thing in common – a loving warm heart.
2. Frosty Winter Nails
When it begins snowing heavily trees resemble grey-headed men, a birdie or two are vagabonding from here to there, while people stay inside the heated houses admiring the white magic through windows. There is no other proper time than now, in the middle of winter, to depict this arctic atmosphere on your nails. Use as many white and blue shades as possible, while also adding some details in icy mint shade to magnify the frosty air.
3. Snowflake Nails

What other colors might envelope you with festive mood than red and green?
5. Shivering Bare Trees
