Thanks to the frosty weather that’s now upon us (or upon some of us anyhow), this new icy nail trend is taking over. It’s a combination of icicles, blue and white colors, sparkles and even sharp, pointy tips.
You know Elsa would’ve been sporting this style here if she had access to a manicurist on her mountain.
This more delicate icicle look will be sure to catch some attention.
The Frosty French Manicure
A French manicure can easily go icicle by going vertical with your white tip rather than horizontal.
This super mod icicle design is mesmerizing to look at.
This bold blue really makes the bright white icicles stand out.
Icicles are easy to create yourself. Just pick your base color and alternate a lighter, sweeping line from the base with sparkly one.
…Or go crazy, and create some silver and blue-tipped talons.
You don’t want to mess with this lady’s winter wonderland.
As long as you have a dark polish for the base, and a lighter one for the icicles (and a steady hand), you can master this style yourself.
Or get creative with color! Who says icicles need to be white?
And if you’ve got the skills, throw a cute penguin in there for good measure.
This subtle look is the one I’m trying later.
Here’s an ombré effect that looks like icicles because little lines of color are bleeding into each other.
If you’re not sure if you’re going to like it, try just painting one nail, and keep the rest simple.
Grey On Grey
A lighter, silvery grey on matte grey looks surprisingly realistic.
