18 Winter Nail Colors That Pair Best with a Hot Toddy


Insta-famous nail artists share their favorite festive polishes.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for an at-home manicure. Nails painted in forest greens, cozy nudes, deep hot chocolates, and yes—even a shade of wine on to match a drink in hand—always put us in a festive mood. We asked 18 of our favorite nail artists to share their go-to mani shade for winter 2020. Their picks, below.

Midnight Oasis

“Midnight Oasis by Orly is the perfect shade to transition from fall into winter. It is a deep creamy blue with a grey undertone that pairs well with any winter color palette.” – Canishiea Sams, @nailsbycanishiea

Peppermint Conditions

“My absolute favorite from the Essie winter 2020 collection would have to be Peppermint Conditions, a sparkly mint green. It’s neutral enough you won’t feel over the top and just the right amount of festive to get you into the holiday spirit.” — Steph Stone, @stephstonenails


“Audacity is a rich deep wine that is super elegant for the season. I often use this color on editorial shoots, it feels special and dramatic! For your winter manicure make sure you are keeping your nails and cuticles hydrated – they dry out so quickly especially as temperatures drop. The new JINsoon Primrose + Honeysuckle Cuticle Oil has 20 all natural facial grade ingredients to nourish and hydrate your cuticles, it’s like skincare for your nails!” — Jin Soon Choi, @jinsoon
