8 Winter Nail Colors That Will Be Popular in 2023

Because of its muted gray tones, this steel-blue polish feels a little grungy, making it ideal for anyone looking to give their mani an edge this winter. Also cool: the all-natural nail polish is free of nine chemicals and made from plant-based ingredients, so it's actually good for your nails.

If you're going to drink red wine when the temperature drops, you might as well get it on your nails as well. Try this cult-classic OPI shade, which Smith wears every winter because its purple undertone shows through on all skin tones, giving it a clean, crisp edge.

Every nail artist I speak with says the Hailey Bieber glazed-donut nail trend is still the most requested nail color, even after almost a year. If you want to make yours stand out, use a silver holographic polish instead of a shimmery white. All of the rainbow shimmers in this polish make it feel special.

According to celebrity nail artist Galdina Jimenez, the top trending nail color last year was purple, and pearl and shimmer finishes give it a glamorous upgrade. This winter's favorite purple look? This metallic shade has the appearance of velvet.

This creamy nude nail polish has me completely smitten. It's for anyone looking for a neutral nail color that isn't too brown or pink. "These shades look great on their own, but they'll be requested as a twist on a French manicure this winter," Jimenez said.

If you want to add a deep, moody shade to your winter nail color palette but don't want something too stark and intense, try this rich plum instead. It's just dark enough to give you all the dark winter vibes without losing the berry hue.

This *fabulous* shade of shimmery, glittery, iridescent color reminds me of a winter wonderland. This is a sheer shade, so use it as a topper on any color or to add a little extra sheen to your nails.

Want to upgrade your winter neutral nail polish? Try a creamy gray, such as this one from Mineral Fusion, which is fully opaque in two coats (seriously). If you prefer a cleaner nail polish, you'll appreciate the fact that this brand is 10-free.
