Part Two: How to Winterize Your Nails

In the last post, I told you guys I had teamed up with Julep to share how I winterize my nails. You can click here for the first half of this post if you missed it. If you are all caught up, here are the rest of my looks inspired by Julep's style personalities:

To me, the Bombshell, is the girl who is always perfectly put together and in line with what is currently in style. Since greys are very popular this year, I was inspired to create a nail look based on this outfit from Banana Republic (I believe). I also included a little bit of sparkle on the nails using Kiss Nails nail polish so that they are holiday ready. I used Julep's Lorenzana and Clara for the half moon manicure. Lorenzana has been my go-to polish this entire fall season. It's such a beautiful nude and the hint of grey makes it very of-the-moment.

Boho Glam
Boho Glam is a very fun, creative style. So I really tried to capture the winter season on the nail. What better way to do that than a string of festive holiday lights?! I would recommend spreading reducing the light colors to maybe two or three, however. I chose four and it got a bit chaotic. I used Julep's Donna, Lexie, and January for the lights as well as Butter London's Royal Navy. The base was NYC's white but Julep's Soraphine is similar. You could use Julep's Plie brush to draw the string for the lights or grab a fine point Sharpie like I did.

It Girl
The It Gitl is someone who is very trendy and chic. Black nails are edgy and a look I always picture an "it girl" wearing; also nail art is quite popular these days so I wanted to combine the two for my nail look. I created the snowman using a dotting tool similar to the one that comes with Julep's Plie Wand. To get this look I used Julep's Soraphine, Jet, and OPI's In My Back Pocket which is similar to Julep's Cody.

Below are a few of Julep's suggestions for winter nail colors. You can get them here.

Let me know in the comments which one is your favorite! I can't wait to get my hands on Joanne and Shari! Ilsa and Kiki remind me of the movie "Frozen"!
