HOW TO CURE THE WINTER BLUES FOR YOUR NAILS




Wintertime wreaks havoc on my nails and hands. The dry skin, cracks and peeling just make me want to hide them in gloves all winter. I've been on a mission to find products that will actually work and I think I've finally found some good ones I wanted to share with you because they actually seem to be working. 


1. I was reading great reviews about this deborah lippman cuticle remover and since I love the nail polish, I knew I had to give it a try. It's on the pricier side so I tested it in Sephora to see if it actually did the trick. Fine minutes later I went back and bought it because it's that good. 

2. Crystal Nail files are great because you can wash them and they last for years. They're also gentle on brittle nails. 

3. One of my friends recently shared with me that she uses argan oil on her nails. I use it for everything else but never thought to use it on my nails. I've been rubbing my favorite argan oil into my cuticles and nails every night before bed then on my hands as well. I love this one by Carefree Organics. 

4. Yes, I buy vitamins because they look pretty. Same as my wine. But these actually do work, for my nails at least. I ran out of them and my nails started to get brittle so I ran back to the store to stock up and a couple weeks later they were back to normal. 

5. Who doesn't love having the perfect manicure all the time? But it's not always realistic. That's why I love this naked nail polish by Zoya. Added benefit Zoya nail polishes are listed as one of the safer brands to use on your nails. 

6. If I do manage to paint my nails I have to use this Essie gel setter as my top coat. It makes a manicure last a lot longer and helps brittle nails in the winter! 

7. I have one of these Ever Skincare Light Beam Handcreams on my nightstand and one in my car. It's lightweight, has an SPF, lightens dark spots, exfoliates and hydrates! Everything you want all in one tube!

  1. Seche Vite fast drying top coat - best top coat ever! I honestly paint my nails before bed and wake up with no smudges or sheet prints.

    1. Umm I think I need this. The most impatient nail drying person ever. I love the saying, the only time a woman is helpless is when her nails are drying.
