Dark, Glittery Navy
Navy isn't new, but this year it's getting an update. "Blue is typically viewed as a risky color to pull off," Stone tells us. "[But] sparkly navy blue just screams 'sophisticated winter wonderland.'" And luckily, tons of brands are coming out with navy-and-glitter hues, with textures ranging from baby-fine to chunky. Stone's top pick is from fellow nail artist Deborah Lippmann: "Rolling In the Deep is dark and subtle enough to keep you looking chic, while still adding a ton of flair to your look with its perfect touch of sparkle."
How To Wear It: "Best worn on short, square nails to keep you looking sharp!" Stone says. "This color would even look amazing with a matte topcoat, to really draw out the sparkles."
Deborah Lippmann Nail Color in Rolling In the Deep, $18, available at Deborah Lippmann.
Whim is Ulta’s in-house nail brand, and it shouldn’t go unnoticed. The line is stocked with on-trend colors like this shimmery navy hue, which goes on ultra-glossy in just two coats.
Whim Nail Lacquer in Indigo Waters, $10, available at Ulta Beauty.
For something a touch brighter, try Julep's Charmaine. The base is a classic navy, and it has glitter of various sizes for serious sparkle.
Julep Nail Polish in Charmaine, $14, available at Julep.
One coat of Essie's Starry Starry Night is a slightly sheer, vibrant blue, but two coats feel deep and moody. However, you have to hurry: The brand has re-released this shade from the vaults (it made its debut in 1985!) for a limited time.
Essie Nail Polish in Starry Starry Night, $8.50, available at Beauty.com.
While there's no actual glitter in Sally Hansen's inky night sky navy, the metallic sheen to this pigment reflects light so beautifully, you could almost say it sparkles.
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Dark Hue-moor, $5.99, available at Walgreens.
