Nail Trends For Winter 2020
Its cold outside, spice up your nails this season.
Nails are an unforgotten accessory that can level up any outfit, no matter the season. As soon as winter hits, the first thing we normally do is run to plaster our mani-pedi in deep red nail polish and call it a day. But a good set of winter nails can come in many unique patterns and colours that can completely level up your winter wardrobe. Whatever nailspo you’re scrolling for, Missguided has got you covered. Take a look at our favourite nail trends for Winter 2020.
Why are manicures good for you?
Did you know that studies have shown that treating yourself to a manicure and pedicure every so often can significantly improve your mental health? It can also help to reduce social anxiety because, although you’re in a social place, you don’t have to be social. It’s safe to say that this has been a hard year for everyone. So whether you fancy heading down to the salon, or taking some me time to practise your nail art skills, we think everyone should be taking time to take care of themselves mentally and physically.
What manicure should I get?
There are so many options! Fancy an easy-breezy style that doesn’t involve much upkeep? Go for gel nails – these are guaranteed to stay in place and are also pretty healthy for your nails. Want to go all out? Get yourself some acrylic nails to have perfect claws for winter. Balling on a budget? Easy. Hone in on your skills and just paint your nails at home. All you need is a nail file, buffer, nail polish and a topcoat. Missguided has nail options for every preference or occasion.
Coloured French manicure
Who doesn’t love a French manicure? The classic Frenchie is a go-to staple for all occasions and @missjoslin has killed this style. Why not spice it up with autumnal colours as we head into the colder months? Go bold with variations of brown, cream and orange tones to achieve the perfect insta ready nails for the season. Pair with a knitted jumper, a shacket and denim jeans and a brown mini bag for a cohesive, insta ready look.
Dark nail colours
Winter manicures often call for darker shades and patterns. So, if you’re thinking of skipping the salon all together this winter, keep it simple with @charlotteemiltsanders basic, but not boring dark brown nail polish with maroon tones which can easily be applied at home. This beaut of a shade will suit all skin tones and is perfect on short nails for those moody winter vibes. Pair with a puffer coat and chunky ankle boots for a grunge winter look that will get all the heads turning.
We are loving the 80’s style revival that has dominated 2020. So, we had to include these 80’s fluid lines nail inspo. The style still utilises autumnal colours placed onto a neutral background which is guaranteed to look amazing with your autumn/winter fits. Make sure to incorporate the 80s into your matching outfit by pairing flared trousers with a turtle neck jumper for a cosy, insta ready outfit.
Still want to add some traditional winter wonderland vibes to your next nail appointment. Go with one of our favourite winter nail trends, stick-on pearls or diamante’s at the bottom, to give a luxe, yet Christmassy look. Who said your fingers cant be your best accessory? These nail accessories are a match made in heaven with a pearlized jumper and leather leggings for a stylish Xmas day fit.
