It’s a new year, and you know what that means: Most of us are setting and working on personal goals and intentions, tossing out old habits that aren’t serving us, and just looking for a fresh start. It’s also a prime opportunity to have a little fun and try something new.
One way I like to mix things up at the beginning of the year is by changing up my beauty routine. And since a lot of us are spending a lot of time at home these days, there is plenty of time to test things out and figure out what works and what doesn’t—all away from many eyes on you due to COVID-19 guidelines. Listen, I’m not forcing you to trim your own bangs or to box-dye your hair a crazy color, but if you did and it didn’t quite work out, you’d probably have plenty of time to course-correct because of social distancing guidelines right now.
If you’re a little wary of making a drastic change, you can take some baby steps and start with mixing up your manicure routine. If you normally stick to reds and neutrals, why not opt for blues and greens? Or if your nails are usually bare, you can treat yourself to an at-home mani and experiment with some new colors or designs. The sky’s the limit here, and if you don’t like it, well there’s always nail polish remover!
To get you inspired, we compiled a list of our favorite nail colors to wear this January. Some are classics and we’ve got a couple of funky and unusual options. Take a look below:
