Dark and simple nails look uber sleek when nail length is kept to a minimum, as shown by @beautyqueenuk and @glamourcounty. Blacks, greys and berry colours keep it season appropriate, but also perfectly on-trend. These shades are so easy to wear and they go with every style of outfit, ensuring you don't feel miss-matched every time you change your top.
It's easy to perk up your manicure with a little seasonal nail art, as seen on the nails of @lyndseyp06 and @fluttersparkle. Snowflakes and snowmen aren't just for Christmas, especially when we're more likely to be building snowmen in February than December. I also love how they've used pale colours and pastel shades to make the design less Christmassy and more January appropriate.
If you're wishing spring was here already, why not take a leaf out of @emherb_ and @bloomzy's book by moving your manicure into the next season early. Adding a hint of sparkle to spring shades (such as green or lilac) can lift your nails, while the pastel base coat is still in-keeping with your winter palette. Plus, floral and sparkle will lift your mood even when it's still a week until payday.
