How To: Keep Your Nails Healthy This Summer

June 25, 2012 at 11:07 am , by


While nail care is an issue you get behind in fall and winter by slathering your talons with shea butter and jojoba oil, during the summer you’re probably more concerned with color (i.e. Monday = pink…Tuesday = banana yellow…Wednesday = lavender…). And if you’re like us, you just cross your fingers and hope that your excessive polish play doesn’t lead to more peeling and splitting of your nails.

Since we’re prone to paint our nails every hour (no, really.) during the summer (NAIL POLISH 4EVA!), we were stoked to stumble upon Dermelect Cosmeceuticals Anti-Aging Nail Lacquers. Not only are the summer shades creamy perfection, but they’re also infused with a protein peptide that strengthens flimsy nails. #winwin

Beauty Confession: What Are Your Summer Beauty Pleasures?

Believe it or not, we are well into summer mode. When temps are in the 30s you kind of have to be, right? This time of year we’d give anything for the blissful days of bare legs and coral lips, but there has to be some trade off to living in NYC.

Being able to toss our hair up in a top knot without having to worry about fitting a knit hat over it, or showing off a super bright toe nail shade every other day are just a few of our best summer beauty moments.
