These Sweater Nails Might Be the Best Thing About Winter

Summer has its fair share of nail trends: patriotic, bright colors and nautical, to name a few. But winter is usually relegated to icicle and holiday nail art — until now. Sweater nail art just took your winter mani took to the next level.

Sweater nails mimic your favorite knitwear with cable-knit designs. They’re also 3-D which makes them feel as bulky and cozy as your go-to pullover.

The toasty nail trend is actually pretty easy to recreate. You just paint your nails with a base color then create the cable-knit lines with 3D sculpting gel using a small brush.

Go for a full knitted manicure or a cable-knit accent nail for a trend that just screams winter.
