I usually wear neutral sheer colors on my nails. It seems obvious that red is a good color for the winter holidays. But are colors like coral and pink more summery and not appropriate for winter holiday season?
I don't think there are hard and fast rules or anything, but generally I would say what goes for apparel colours probably applies to nails too - jewel tones and richer tones in fall/winter, brights and pastels for spring/summer, neutrals year-round, etc.
I think that pale/nude/neutral colors look better on my hands, so those are a staple for me year-round. I will also wear a dark/vampy color in the summer if I feel like it. No rules, IMO, as far as np is concerned.
I don't think there's really any rules that you have to adhere to, but personally I prefer darker colors for fall/winter, pastels for spring, and brights and neons for summer. I also think neutrals look nice all year round. But, it's just whatever you want to wear!
Some colors definitely scream a certain season to me but I dont not wear a color because its not the right time of year. Sometimes in the winter while its snowing I like to have summer nails- it gives me hope!
Rules, schmules....do what you like and what suits your mood and your outfit no matter the season! I do tend to wear more plums/reds/deeper colors in the fall and winter but honestly I don't feel bound to any rules.
I love a beautiful nude pedicure with summer sandals and flip flops but sometimes a really nice deep vampy color or even a shimmery black (like Sephora/OPI Never Enough Shoes) is a fun, unexpected pop on the ol' tootsies
