winter skin

Every fall and winter my skin gets super dry, and because I’m a bit of a germaphobe I wash my hands a lot which doesn’t help dry skin. And I really dislike putting lotion on my skin. This is basically the perfect recipe for cracked skin, and it can get so bad my knuckles will even bleed a little. The obvious question is, why don’t I just put lotion on my hands? The answer is that I hate having lotion on my hands and I will only put it on in grave conditions because I hate having greasy hands.

27 nail products

I am such a nail girl. I like having my nails done at all times, and if they aren’t, or they are chipped — it drives me nuts. I’ve always been good at painting my own nails and I do so at least once a week. I’m always on the lookout for new and better nail products. Especially if they are fast-drying or an amazing topcoat.

I also wanted to know if they had any favorite go-to nail colors for fall/winter and if there are nail trends they were wanting to try.
