The Best Sweater Nails For Fall & Winter

1. Snowflakes & Glitter

Pair your cable knit sweater nails with pale pink nails decorated with sparkling gold glitter and little white snowflakes to create the perfect manicure for the winter season. We love the matte texture of the cable knit paired with the glossy glittery nails.

2. Snowy White

For a chic and sophisticated manicure add a sweater accent nail to a classic French tip design. Three fingers have a pale pink and white French tip design, while the middle finger is half decorated with a cable knit design and half decorated with snowflakes and the ring finger features the sweater pattern – so cute!

3. Taupe & Rose Gold

This cozy taupe and rose gold nail look is exactly what you need for the fall season. The thumb and little finger are covered entirely in rose gold glitter, while the rest of the nails are painted with taupe nail polish and then finished with a glossy top coat, a touch of rose gold at the base, and a cable knit design on the ring finger.

4. Sage Green

This sage green, leafy manicure is just gorgeous! The glossy green nails sit alongside matte middle and ring fingers that are decorated with a textured sweater design, and 3D leaves to create a stunning manicure that is just irresistible.

5. Checks & Cable Knit

Go for a cute and cozy look, with this beautiful pink manicure that pairs sweater designs with checks and snowflake motifs. Each nail is painted in a different pink tone and then some are decorated with sparkling glitter, a little white snowflake, a cable knit pattern, or a pink and silver check design – so pretty!

6. Winter Details

This nail design is exactly what you need during the winter months! We love the baby blue nails paired with pink shimmery iridescent polish that sparkles in blue and gold tones under the light. Two nails are decorated with intricate, detailed snowflakes, while the middle finger features a sweater pattern.

This manicure has the ultimate fall look, with the cozy textured sweater design and gorgeous fall colors. The nails start black on the thumb and then lighten as you move down the hand to a camel beige shade on the little finger. Each finger is then decorated with a cable knit pattern with a textured finish to achieve that soft and cozy look.

8. Rose Gold & Green

Since pink and green are opposites on the color wheel, they make an excellent color combination for a manicure, as you can see from this nail design. Three nails are painted with a rose gold glitter polish for a glam look, while the middle and ring fingers are painted with a rich, dark green polish and decorated with a cable knit design and white snowflakes.

9. Festive Red
