With all this hand washing and sanitizing, you will want to make sure you moisturize your hands a lot. You don’t have to use an extra fancy moisturizer, any drug store brand will do! Just make sure it is unscented so it doesn’t irritate your skin.
We know that during the winter months we have a tendency to wear gloves everywhere we go, so make sure you keep your gloves on when doing the dishes or cleaning around the house. It will help protect your nails from all the harsh chemicals that are in cleaning supplies which can dry out and damage your hands. Keep them looking healthy by protecting them with gloves!

10 Tips for Taking Care of Nails This Holiday Season
The holidays are a busy time of year, with lots to do and plenty of fun activities. While this is the best time of year, it can also be hard on your nails. Here are 10 tips to help you take care of your nails this holiday season.
1. Always wear gloves when cleaning and gardening. Use gloves to protect your hands from household and garden chemicals and remember to moisturize your hands after washing them.
2. Try not to put too much pressure on your fingertips when typing or writing – use the pads of your fingers instead, as these are stronger areas of the hand.
3. Avoid biting or picking at cuticles, as this can lead to infection and damage nails’ natural protective coating (the nail plate).
4. Wear rubber gloves when washing dishes or doing housework to prevent moisture loss from prolonged contact with water; this causes nails to become soft and fragile.
5. Avoid using acrylics or gel manicures with formaldehyde as they weaken the nail, leaving them brittle and prone to peeling off in layers over time; instead opt for more natural alternatives such as buffing/filing down any ridges in order maintain healthy growth patterns without damaging cuticles too
Winter is upon us, and it can be tough on our hands and nails. The cold, dry air coupled with central heating can leave our skin and nails dry and damaged.
It’s a good idea to change your nail care routine with the seasons. I like to switch to a creamier hand lotion during the winter months and use a heavier cuticle oil at night.
Here are my tips for taking care of nails this holiday season:
December is a busy month for many people. With holiday parties, family gatherings and work related events, it can be difficult to find the time to take care of your nails. But you want to keep your nails looking great this holiday season. Here are some tips on how to keep them looking their best during December.
Tip 1: Allow Time for a Manicure
As you make your holiday plans, incorporate time for a manicure in there as well. It’s important to keep up with regular manicures, but especially during December when you have more events that require you to look your best.
Tip 2: Wear Nail Polish
Nail polish helps protect your nails from breaking and chipping. The extra layer adds protection so that the nail itself doesn’t break as easily. During December, when you’re out shopping, wearing gloves and carrying bags, it’s even more important to protect your nails since they’re more prone to breaking and chipping.
Tip 3: Avoid Dark Colors
Dark nail polishes tend to stain your nails after about a week of wear. If you like dark colors, try doing a French manicure with a dark color instead of wearing dark polish all over the nail. You still get the look of darker nail polish, but it
You have to love the holidays right? It’s the time of year for friends, family, good food and fun. And don’t forget great nails!
If you want to keep your nails looking their best this holiday season, here are some tips and tricks:
1. Don’t risk ruining a fresh manicure by opening bottles with them. Save your nails from chipping or breaking by opening those tough bottle tops with your keys instead.
2. When in doubt, go for the french manicure- It’s hard to mess up! French manicures are simple and classic—perfect for any occasion.
3. Keep a top coat with you at all times- Nothing ruins a beautiful nail more than chipped polish!
4. Avoid any sort of hand sanitizer that contains alcohol—it can dry out your nails terribly!
5. Give yourself a home manicure- If you can’t get to the salon, give yourself one at home. It will save you time and money without compromising quality! Check out our blog on how to give yourself a salon-worthy manicure at home here: http://www.pinkandwhitenailsalon
1. Hydrate. Drink plenty of water. Not only will your skin be more supple, but your nails will be stronger and less prone to breakage.
2. Apply a base coat. Before painting, always apply a base coat for protection against staining, which can occur with darker polishes.
3. Choose a polish color that suits your skin tone. Every woman has a nail color that doesn’t work with her skin tone, so find out what that is on you and stop wearing it!
4. Apply polish in thin layers, applying two coats instead of one thick layer of polish. A thin layer of polish dries faster and avoids clumps and bubbles that occur with thicker application.
5. Let each layer dry completely before moving on to the next layer of polish. This helps to ensure that your end result is smooth and evenly colored without bubbles or clumps from pooling of the polish or from accidentally smudging one layer into the next from not allowing proper drying time between layers.
1. Treat your nails like extensions of your skin.
Nails breathe like your skin and need care and attention, too. Massage cuticle oil (try CND Solar Oil) into your cuticles every day to keep them soft. If you use nail polish remover more than once a week, buy a non-acetone formula; it’s less drying for the nails. And apply hand cream regularly–especially after washing dishes, which dries out nails and hands.
2. Don’t file your nails into extreme shapes.
If you want to create a round or square shape, file in one direction only, not back and forth–this will prevent nails from splitting or peeling. Also, make sure your file isn’t too rough: 120 grit or 180 grit is ideal; 100 grit is too harsh; 240 grit is too soft.
3. Keep artificial nails off kids’ hands.
Artificial nails may look cool on adults but they’re not appropriate for children under 16 because their bodies are still growing. If kids get acrylic or gel nails, they could cause permanent damage to their nail beds as they grow older because the chemicals may be absorbed into their bloodstream through the natural opening at the base of the nail bed.
4. Use a
