5 Girl Bosses Share Their Favorite Winter Nail Colors

The Beauty Closet - Home Page

When I was a little girl, my mom always stressed a few things when it came to presentation: make sure your clothes are always ironed and clean, keep your hair primp, and always have your nails clean, filed, and looking nice.


And whether it's been a single color or ornate, crazy designs, making sure my nails look great has always been something I've (at least tried) to uphold. It can say so much about your personality, and more importantly, can be a conversation starter no matter where you're at.

With the colder months upon us, you may be wondering what type of nail colors are good for you to try out. For me, I love going to for a deep, rich red on the nail, but also know nothing beats a clear coat with a design for lasting effects. I grabbed 5 boss babes to share what their favorite winter shade is and why:

What She Loves:

OPI, "My Dogsled Is A Hybrid"

Why She Loves It:

"I either wear it as is with a top coat or paint some glitter polish on the tips for a fun and festive look. I love this nail shade for winter because it isn't your typical green, which makes it a bit refreshing from both the classic Christmas colors and cliché 'dark for fall/winter' hues."

What She Loves:

Essie, "Downtown Brown"

Why She Loves It:

"My favorite nail color to wear this season is 'Downtown Brown' by Essie! It's a really nice oxblood color that definitely matches my current mood - moody and vampy. I love it because I wear a lot of red and dark lipsticks, and it really pairs well with them."

Christine Cauthen

What She Does:

Lead Editor, 21Ninety

What She Loves:

Artistic Colour Revolution, "Hotness"

Why She Loves It:

"I wear attention-grabbing shades like 'Hotness' during the winter because I think nails can be the best accessory. My wardrobe is largely made up of versatile neutral shades, but a statement-making nail color or a bold lip shade keeps things interesting. 'Hotness' is a great holiday color, but it will also add extra flair to the often-dull later parts of winter."

Christina Brown

What She Does:

Founder, LoveBrownSugar

What She Loves:

Ginger & Liz, "Best I've Ever Had"

Why She Loves It:

"I love this color because it's the perfect nude for brown girls and it's made by brown girls (even better)."

Ashley Dunn

@iamashleydunn

What She Does:

Wardrobe Stylist/Influencer

What She Loves:

OPI, "Alpine Snow"

Why She Loves It:

"White is a neutral that I love. It goes with all of my looks; so I never have to worry about my nail polish matching a look no matter if I'm in color or print. This year, I started getting my nails dipped using a technique called 'dipping' using the same polish but in a powder form. I love this technique, because it allows the white to last 2 weeks or more without chipping or staining. It's a win-win for me!"

So, if you've been rocking with this site for several years now, you might vaguely recall an article that I wrote, a couple of years back entitled, "Why You Need To Grieve Your Past Relationship". The bottom line was, if you don't make the time to go through the five stages of grief — denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance — even when it comes to the ending of a romantic relationship, you could 1) mistake a lack of thorough and proper grieving for still loving someone and/or 2) prolong the process of healing, so that you can actually move forward.

We all know that advocacy for inclusion and equality should be year-round, since we all have to be our fullest selves all day every day. Identity is a key element of doing that, and for LGBTQ+ professionals, this can include the question of coming out at work. Some may wonder whether their personal business is, well, anybody's business at work, while others might want to feel safe in the office being out, loud, and proud. Either way, coming out in the workplace is indeed an issue that not only must be addressed, but addressed appropriately.

Love is beautiful and social media is a wonderful way to showcase and spread it. However, many times it's the content with a bit of controversy or drama tied to it that gets all the double taps. But as my father once told me, "It's fine to seek drama in your art and interests, but love should make you happy and feel peace." When he said that, it stuck with me. For a long time, I think I sought out excitement in my relationships and that can lead to a lot of unhappiness or unhealthy situations.
