Got that wintertime sadness? We feel you. These last few cold weeks are begging us to stray from the hot pink and ruby red polishes that generally come with summer and find nirvana in effervescent winter shades.
Even though that never-lives-up-to-the-hype New Year’s Eve party has become an afterthought, we still have two months of winter ahead of us. We’re ready to finish out the season like a boss and pair our favorite cold-weather outfits with Julep’s chicest winter polishes. Ring the alarm!
Cozy Night by the Fire
Hiding from the remnants of #Juno? With “Friends” on Netflix and Julep’s Sawyer polish in tow, why leave the house? Since sipping a vanilla latte by the fire is way better than, basically everything, and you’ve crashed on the couch for the night anyway, treat yo’ self with an at-home spa treatment. Heat up a Vanish Cuticle Softener and Remover bottle in a mug of warm water and soak your nails for some deserved and much needed R&R. Those cuticles and ‘tips will thank you.
I’m-So-Fancy Date Night
Hot date tonight? Reinvigorate your can’t-keep-his-eyes-off-you look with Ilsa, an enticing yet playful polish. When paired with a sleek black dress, this must-have instantly refines your look. Make sure you’re date- (and post-date) ready by trimming down your nails beforehand so you don’t accidentally draw blood from your bae’s arm while fake laughing at his jokes.
Julep Pro Tip: For smooth edges, start with the coarse side of your emery board and finish with the finer side.
#NYFW and Cocktails with Girlfriends
Unlike other major holidays, New York Fashion Week happens twice a year—holla! (Yes, we consider NYFW a holiday.) Even if you’re not in the city, celebrate the shows by dressing up in your finest LBD and hitting up a ritzy happy hour with your girlfriends. Be sure to #instamani your Shari polish and select cocktail. No #instahangnails, please!
All-About-Me Ski Trip
I said, Brrr…It’s cold out there. One of the best wintery vacays is skiing, but that doesn’t mean you should take a style sabbatical while hitting the slopes. Frost yourself with the Kiki polish and invoke a sense of luxurious comfort. Just be sure to keep your skin moisturized throughout the day since the lack of humidity will not only dry out your skin, but your nails as well. Ever wonder how people crack their nails? That’s how.
New Year & New Job
With new years come new jobs and promotions. Get it, girl. Just picture yourself walking into the office on the first day of your dream job: your muted tote screams unstoppable and your Joanne polish declares you the official #GirlBoss.
Julep Pro Tip: Polish your winter-ready nails with two coats of Oxygen Nail Treatment to keep them strong and healthy well into spring.
