Winter nail polish colors include metallic shades that shimmer, pale shades of gray and blues, nude shades and berry-tinged shades. Neutral shades such as pale gray, taupe and gunmetal gray are a favorite winter selection, because they are subtle shades ideal for everyday wear.
Shimmery shades such as metallic copper, light gold and a pearl shimmer create beautiful chrome colors for gloomy winter days. A soft sheen makes the nail color glitzy in a subtle way. Nude shades are also common nail color picks in winter. Pink-toned nudes, khaki, pearly nude and tawny shades look good on fair and darker skin tones. For a brighter color, berry and wine shades such as ruby, plum, raspberry and ox blood look good for the winter season.
