Either way, make sure that your nails look clean and flashy. Do not use too many elements by doing it to not going out of fashion. Glittery striped nail art will bring some joy in this winter.

If you’re looking for super chic nail art design for the winter season, you’re going to adore this one! Adorn your nails with shiny itty-bitty rhinestones over the plain polish which makes your nails look more stylish than ever. FYI: If you want to use rhinestones for every single fingernail, keep the polish as clean as it is.
