When you think of winter nail colors, what comes to mind? Dark, vampy, or maybe wearing no polish at all? Just because the season changes doesn't mean you have to resort to the same old boring nail polish shades. Since it's darker and colder, that makes it even more necessary to spice things up with some interesting nail colors.
