14 Frosty Nail Art Ideas That Are Ideal For Winter

If you thrive in the winter season — and all of the cold-weather activities that come along with it — you’ll definitely want a set of “icy” nails, a mani a trend with over 43 million views on TikTok that’s perfect for this time of year.

Icy nail art includes a blend of cool tones and crackling textures, says Coca Michelle, a celebrity nail artist. For example, think of a sheer blue polish with an embossed tip that captures the look of ice, she tells Bustle.

Creators on TikTok have perfected the art of frosting their fingertips with designs that truly look like actual icicles. But according to Michelle, you don’t have to be literal about it. Icy nails can be covered in snowflakes for a pretty winter theme, or you can use an icy texture as a backdrop for other types of nail art. Michelle has also played around with the trend by applying layers of gems atop a clear, frozen-looking nail.
