Jaw-dropping January Nails And January Nail Designs

January is a very looooong month, to say the least; it is in January that we find New Year's Eve events, and co.

So with all the events that happen this January, it is only safe to say that the most popular nail polish colors for January are red, brown, white, pink, and all the other serious or bold colors around the world!

In January, you can opt for brown or black colors too for classy and minimalist nail looks if you are not into bold colors like me.

Star nail designs, my love for you knows no bounds. 

These nail designs mean to me what metallic nails do; it's like you can just slap on any color and you are good to go. 

You can always replace the base color with a milky or jelly-white color and the stars can be any color; this is what I mean.

6. White & black swrils

Back in 2022 swirl nail designs were trending like no tomorrow but we guess the excitement has died down for now. 

But you can bring them back because there's something mysterious about jumping on an old trend. :)

Wearing these grey metallic nails this January is going to give off a 'boss chick' vibes so why not try it? 

If you trying to be a little dramatic, add black stars to them.

To me, as long it's winter, every month is Christmas to me.

I always have mixed feelings about these claws-looking nails and all I can say is "These nail techs are extra". 

Despite how I feel about them, I have been seeing them a lot all over the internet so who am I not to add them to this list? 

The baby blue makes this design a bit soft and I think if I ever want to get these types of designs on my nails, I would go for exactly these set.

10. Red swirls

Best red nails for January
Swirl nail designs again and this time in red. 

Red is a good color for these types of nail designs. 

I also love the fact that they added a white color to the swirls to tone the red color down a bit.

11. Blue & gold nails

Gold and royal blue are a very daring color combination but it appears fine here. 

If you want to know what it is like to look like royalty then get these set this January and find out.

12. V-shaped frenchies

Best January nails
V-shaped French tip nails are my favorite after the regular kind. 

This is because they are unique, but I prefer getting them in these exact colors or red.

13. Add a touch of neon

If you want to go a little crazy this January with your v-shaped French tips, you can always switch the white to another color like neon and some glittery magic!

14. Or go rainbow

And with a little bit of every color, you won't be able to miss out on anything this month.

15. Green January

Green is a not very popular choice for January nails but dare to be different. 

The marble designs give the forest green color a swirling vibe which is good.

However, getting these exact nail colors will require you to dress (black, gold, white, or brown clothes) to match them that is if you are anything like me.

16. Pink glitter

Pink glitter nails ideas
I know pink glitter nails is so last month but who says it can't be a thing now?
