I'm no beauty expert, but I do believe in maintaining a healthy body from head to toe, both inside and out. One of my biggest beauty issues in the wintertime is excessive dryness at my hands and cuticles. Luckily, I've picked up on some tips on how to winterize those nails for those of you who also experience the seasonal struggle. I've included some of my favorite nail care advice below, because style doesn't stop at your clothing:
1. Keep them short and sweet. Despite the appeal of longer nails, keeping them short will ensure cleanliness and health all season long. Julep suggests starting with the coarse side of the nail file and finishing with the finer side for smooth edges.
2. Moisturize! Between your cuticles, hands, and nails, everything should be moisturized with extra care during the dry months. Pocket-sized hand creams and cuticle serums are the perfect on-the-go products to ensure hydration all day long.
3. Go metallic. This is more of an appearance preference rather than health, but I love bringing out my metallic nail polishes in the wintertime to celebrate the holiday season. Champagne shades like mine create a subtle shine that will still match almost any look.
To embrace the idea of winterizing your look, today's post also features an easy-chic cold weather outfit for everyday wear. Nothing says winter like a pop of faux fur, which this mixed media jacket incorporates nicely into a versatile outerwear piece. Since I'm sporting my usual monochrome uniform, I decided to play off the warm tones of my nail polish with the panama hat and olive green clutch. I winterize my outfits by adding personality to neutrals. How about you?
Speaking of color, Julep has provided a few of their favorite shades below for the ultimate wintertime look. I particularly love Shari and Sawyer, from which I took inspiration for today's polish choice. Feel free to leave me a comment about your favorite wintertime nail polish, and check out Julep's collection here for even more inspiration. I hope this post has helped you start winterizing from head to toe!
