Winter can wreak havoc on your nails and hands. Although I do not have to deal with the elements as much in the sunshine state, I still find that no matter how much lotion I apply my hands are always dry. During the winter, I use foot cream on my hands at night to keep them extra-moisturized throughout the day. I also always use a cuticle oil once a week to keep them from cracking.
Need some extra help keeping your hands and nails looking their best without constant visits to the salon? Julep has a step-by-step tutorial with their best winter nail-care tips.
In true Donna and Tom fashion, you should #treatyoself with regular at-home manis. There is something about Sunday nights, anticipating a new week, that makes me want to paint my nails. At least they will look good while I am typing away all day on the keyboard, Starbucks cup by my side.
Save the flamingo pink and aqua polishes for summer vacation and embrace rich jewel tones for winter. I've been obsessed with pale pink and mauve polishes recently, partly because they help elongate my short fingers. Julep has a gorgeous line of winter polishes, perfect for making all of your Elsa dreams come true.
Or if bright nails are the one thing that can help you forget about the negative temperature outdoors, then just go with it. It's always summer somewhere, right?
