6 ‘Redhead Friendly’ Nail Polishes to Warm Your Spirits This Season

With many salons having reduced availability due to the holiday rush and extra health precautions, there’s never been a better time to get reacquainted with an old beauty favorite –– nail polish!

Here are ‘redhead friendly’ nail polishes to use for your next at-home manicure this winter season:

Classic Reds

When the weather turns cooler and the skies are grey, there’s nothing like the pop of a bright, classic shade of red nail polish. This go-to shade is perfect for the holidays and carries through seamlessly into Valentine’s Day and beyond.

Shades we love: OPI in Big Apple Red, butter LONDON Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer in Her Majesty’s Red 

Wine Time

Taking things a few shades deeper from the classic red, we arrive at a sultry merlot. This hue is the perfect complement to winter’s palette of darker tones. Sit by the fire and sip your favorite glass of wine as you admire your matching mani.

Shades we love: OPI in Complimentary Wine, essie Nail Polish in Bordeaux

Golden Girls

If you think shades of gold are strictly reserved for Miami Beach during Spring Break, think again. This metallic beauty is ideal for the holiday season and well into the colder months. A hint of gold on the nails looks incredible with an all-black ensemble.

Shades we love: OPI in This Gold Sleighs Me, ZOYA in Goldie



This chic shade of green is stunning on most skin tones and is especially complementary on redheads.

Winter Whites

A clean and crisp shade of white is somewhat unexpected for the winter season but being unique is always a good thing. This modern neutral is quiet enough for a professional setting but bold enough to turn things up at night.

If the winter has you feeling blue, this color might actually turn your mood around. Cool tones in every shade of blue work effortlessly within this season’s hottest runway trends.
