4 Winter Nail Colors That Are IT Girl Approved

I’m guilty of one of the cardinal breaches of getting your nails done. The sin of being basic and getting the same shade every – single – damn – time. Like clockwork, when the weather changes, I suddenly develop courage and try to mix it up. Here is what my nail salon experience looks like monthly. 

I call to make an appointment and inevitably show up 15 minutes late. Sure enough, 6 people show up at the exact same time and we are passively (aggressively) trying to beat each other and get seated first. I immediately turn to the wall and pick a statement color and mosey my way to the lady declaring that “I’m ready!” She confirmed, “Did you pick your color?”, “Sure did!” – I respond as I innocently blink my eyes as I walk past client numbers 2-5 “Ha!

4 HOLY GRAIL HAIR PRODUCTS

4 HOLY GRAIL HAIR PRODUCTS

I’ve been thinking a lot about the brands that I use every day and what drew me to them. There is no shortage of hair styling products, but what makes you choose the one that you do? Pretty packaging? High rating on Amazon? Or, is it just a personal recommendation? Almost every product that is in my beauty arsenal came from the recommendation of someone I trust. I’ve tried a million dry shampoos, so when a girlfriend asks me about which one to use – I’m an encyclopedia of knowledge…
