Snowflake Nail Designs
1.    Choose a dark background color for your nails. Paint your nails evenly and allow them to dry completely. Add a second coat of nail polish if needed.

2.    Next, paint three lines that intersect, creating an asterisk * to serve as your snowflake. To do this, use white or silver nail polish to paint one straight vertical line on your nails, followed by an intersecting horizontal line, followed by one diagonal intersecting line. You may need to let each line dry just a bit to avoid smudging your designs.

Tip: You can paint one large snowflake or a few snowflakes of various sizes on your nails. Paint longer lines for large snowflakes and shorter lines for smaller snowflakes. You can also do some snowflakes in silver and some in white, or do all of them in white and apply a glittery topcoat with silver specks for added dimension.

3.    Allow your snowflakes to dry completely. Consider adding a clear or glitter topcoat to preserve your nail designs.

Artistic Snowflake Nail Designs
1.    Choose a dark or bold background color for your nails. Paint your nails evenly and allow them to dry completely. Then decide if a second coat of nail polish is necessary.

2.    Paint a plus sign on your nails.

3.    Paint shorter, diagonal lines coming out from each intersecting point of the plus sign.

4.    On each line from the plus sign, paint two small diagonal lines in opposite directions toward the end of the line.

5.    Consider adding a few white or silver dots here and there on your nails for smaller snowflakes in the distance.

6.    Allow your snowflakes to dry completely. Consider adding a clear or glitter topcoat to preserve your nail designs.

Figure Skates Nail Designs
1.    Choose a background color for your nails. Remember to keep good contrast by using dark backgrounds for light nail designs and vice versa. Paint your nails evenly and allow them to dry completely. Then decide if a second coat of nail polish is necessary.

2.    Using white, paint a boot with a slightly pointed toe. To break this down step-by-step, paint one vertical line for the back and heel and paint a downward sloping line for the front of the skate. Paint an opening at the top (as a curvy line) and paint the sole of the boot with a little heel at the back.

3.    Using silver nail polish, paint the blades as a horizontal line that connects to the sole of the ice skate at the heel and toe areas.

4.    Add some laces to the front of the boot using silver or another light color.

5.    Apply a topcoat to protect your ice skate nail designs.

Hockey Skates Nail Designs
1.    Choose a light background color for your nails. Paint your nails evenly and allow them to dry completely. Then decide if a second coat of nail polish is necessary.

2.    Using black, paint the boot of the hockey skate. You can use the instructions in step 2 above, but make the boot a bit stockier and thicker for the hockey version of the ice skate. Bring the tongue of the boot up higher in the front and bring the line in the back up a bit higher too.

3.    Using white, paint the plastic area that holds the ice skate blade. This is sort of like a horizontal line with two smaller vertical lines connecting it to the boot. On nails, though, this won’t be very pronounced.

4.    Add some white laces and white accents to the hockey skate itself.

5.    Using silver, paint the blade at the base of the white horizontal line.

6.    Apply a clear topcoat to preserve your hockey skate nail designs.

Mittens Nail Designs
1.    Choose a contrasting background color for your nails once you know what color mittens you would like to paint. Paint your nails evenly and allow them to dry completely. Then decide if a second coat of nail polish is necessary.

2.    Using the color for your mittens, paint two ovals in any direction you like, leaving enough room to add the thumb.

3.    Paint another smaller oval connected to each of the larger ovals. This will be the thumb part of the mitten.

4.    Add the cuffs for each mitten by painting either a lacy cuff or a straight cuff.

5.    Using a very fine nail art brush or a toothpick, paint a curving string connecting the mittens to each other.

6.    Apply a clear topcoat to preserve your mittens nail art designs.

Winter Hat Nail Designs
1.    Choose a contrasting background color for your nails once you know what color winter hat you would like to paint. Paint your nails evenly and allow them to dry completely. Then decide if a second coat of nail polish is necessary.

2.    To create the hat, paint half a circle with the rounded part toward the top of your nail.

3.    Paint a rounded rectangle at the bottom part of the half-circle to create the part of the hat with the opening for your head.

4.    Paint a circle for a pom-pom on top if desired.

5.    Apply a clear topcoat to preserve your nail art.
