While nail polish is deemed as a subtle detail when factored into your overall look, that doesn't mean your manicure is unimportant. Whether you head to your trusted nail tech every few weeks or treat the time spent painting your nails as a valuable nod to self-care, the color of your nails can express your personal style and mood. If you're sick of pinks, you've outgrown reds, or your bottle of nude is dwindling down to the last drop, Kendall Jenner's brown nail polish is a must-try hue for the winter season.

The 22-year-old took to her Instagram story on Jan. 7 to share a quick snapshot of her latest manicure. In the spirit of giving credit where credit is due, Jenner tagged her go-to salon, Nail Bar and Beauty Lounge in Beverly Hills. Thanks to the celebrity hotspot, the model left with her long, square nails painted in a chocolate brown shade.

Although colors like deep red, smoky purple, and black onyx are known as popular winter shades, Jenner's latest choice may give them a run for their money. Opting for a rich brown gives off the same dramatic effect as black, but with a much softer touch.

Here's where it gets complicated (in a good way). There are endless options when it comes to selecting the brown nail polish that's right for you. Channel your favorite drink, an almond latte, with a muted hazel shade, experiment with a super-dark cocoa color, or go all out with a sparkly bronze.
