Best Winter Manicure Colors

Best Colors for Winter Manicures | Beauty BetsI spent the holidays in Belize and when I returned with a neon pink shellac mani I felt totally weird until I got it redone a few weeks later. Neon pink was definitely fun during my tropical escape, but felt a little out of place in the Midwestern tundra. Above are five of my favorite colors to wear when the temps get chilly, along with some of the best shades I’ve uncovered recently. Do you find yourself abandoning coral and trying out something moody like gray in the winter? Have any new favorites this year? Do tell.

RED: Dior Vernis Gel Shine Nail Lacquer in Glory ($25) // Zoya Nail Polish in America ($9) // Ciate Paint Pot in Cupcake Queen ($8) //  Christian Louboutin Nail Colour in Poppy Red ($50)

GRAY:  Marc Jacobs Nail Lacquer in Evelyn ($18) // Zoya Nail Polish in Dove ($9) //  Julep Color Treat in Daria ($14) //  Zoya Nail Polish in Loredana ($9)

BLUE:  Zoya Nail Polish in Sailor ($9) //  Tenoverten Nail Polish in Midnight Blue ($18) // Essie Nail Polish in Style Cartel ($8.50) //  Julep Color Treat in Blakely ($14)
