Winter months don't mean it's time to stop your regular pedicure appointments. However, the change in season does provide a reason to rethink what polish color you'll choose and, perhaps, add some new colors to your rotation. It's time to swap the bright pinks, pastel purples, and stark white polishes for moodier shades like muted blues, shimmery golds, and deep greens to ring in the winter months. Plus, the holidays that take place during the winter season provide reason to add some fun (and maybe even a little sparkle) to your next pedicure.

With some help from out favorite brands like OPI, Olive & June, Essie, and more, we're here to provide all of the winter pedicure inspiration you'll need for your next at-home spa night or trip to the salon. Here are 12 of the best pedicure colors for winter, starting at just $4.99.
