9 Winter Nail Polish Colors Our Editors Can’t Get Enough Of


The acronym for Seasonal Affective Disorder is wildly appropriate. I don't know about you, but I definitely get SAD when the temps drop below 20 and I have to trudge through 20 inches of snow to get to the nearest subway station... so anytime I'm able to take advantage of a mood booster, you'd better believe that I will. Indulging in a manicure with a winter nail polish color, whether it's cheery or moody, is always a surefire fix for a case of the blues... and my fellow Zoe Report editors feel the same way.

In December, celebrity manicurists including Deborah Lippmann and Gina Edwards told TZR that colors like glitter and metallics are trending for winter 2018 — and there's nothing wrong with some serious shimmer. But this team favors shades that have personal meanings: Aemilia Madden, TZR's Senior Fashion Editor, prefers a periwinkle that reminds her of snowflakes, while Associate Celebrity Editor Ruby Buddemeyer wears black, a shade that she's favored since her school days. Of course, the team doesn't just go for mattes... Angela Melero, Senior West Coast Editor, prefers Butter London's Bling Crushed Diamonds Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer, a winter white with a hint of sparkle that she considers her new nude. As you can see, the team's favorite shades are reflective of every kind of #mood... which makes it all the more easier for you to find one that suits yours.
