Welcome Winter: A Guide to Winter Nail Wraps ❄️

Welcome Winter: A Guide to Winter Nail Wraps ❄️

The days are getting shorter, the air is getting crisper, and the snowflakes are dancing in the sky! It’s time to welcome the enchanting embrace of winter

Before diving into our winter nail care guide, let's delve into some fascinating winter facts from our friends from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), Guinness World Records, and the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC). 

Winter Fact #1: Imagine a snowstorm that lasted a year! That’s exactly what happened to Mount Rainier, Washington, in 1971-1972! It holds the record for the most snowfall in a single year, with a staggering 1,122 inches (2850 cm) recorded in 1971-1972. That's enough snow to bury a two-story house! Talk about a winter wonderland gone wild! ❄️

Winter Fact #2: On July 21, 1983, the Vostok research station in Antarctica recorded a bone-chilling temperature of -89.2°C (-128.6°F). It’s the coldest temperature ever recorded! Stepping outside there would be like taking a dip in a frozen lake! 🥶

Winter Fact #3: Like us humans, every snowflake is unique, thanks to its weather conditions. Scientists have identified over 35 different ice crystal shapes - so look closely next time it snows! You might just see a snowflake shaped like a star, a fern, or even a diamond!

Now, let’s unveil the magic of winter traditions that make it extraordinarily special! 

From the glittering lights of festive neighborhoods to the joyous sounds of carolers spreading holiday cheer, it’s truly an enchanting season to celebrate warmth and togetherness. It’s the season for many beloved traditions and holidays, such as Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. It is a time for family gatherings, exchanging gifts, and enjoying the festive atmosphere.

Winter also brings many fun activities like snowball fights and enjoying hot chocolate! But let’s face it - winter's beauty can be harsh on our hands, and our nails often suffer, becoming brittle and prone to breakage. That's why it's important to have a plan in place to keep your hands healthy and protected from the harsh winter air.

So don’t let the cold weather get your nails down! Of course, we can still have fabulous nails during the winter season! Step into this season with confidence and perfectly nurtured nails! As the frosty season unfolds, our nails deserve an extra TLC to combat the harsh weather. Prepare to keep your nails healthy and strong to rock our winter-inspired wraps. 

Join us on a self-care and self-love journey as we discover essential tips for maintaining healthy and fabulous nails this winter season.  Let’s get started!

Hand and Nail Care Tips

  1. Embrace the Power of Moisture

Just like your skin, your nails need hydration to thrive. During the winter, when the air is drier than usual, moisturizing your nails is even more important. Invest in a rich hand cream and cuticle oil to keep your nails soft, supple, and protected from the elements.

We understand your hands go through a lot everyday, from weather changes to sanitizing. Your hands deserve it! One customer also shared with us that a ten-minute paraffin wax and lavender oil treatment helps keep her hands moisturized and it also adds a protective layer to the skin, keeping your hands feeling soft and supple.

  1. Gloves: Your Hands' Best Friend

When venturing out into the frosty air, don't forget to equip your hands with their best friend: gloves. Gloves will help to shield your hands from the harsh elements, preventing them from drying out and cracking. Choose lined or insulated gloves for extra warmth and protection.

  1. Gentle Filing and Buffing

While filing and buffing can help to smooth out ridges and imperfections on your nails, it's important to do so gently, especially during the winter months. Filing it too much can weaken your nails, making them more prone to breakage. Opt for a fine-grit file and use light strokes.

  1. Cuticle Care: Don't Forget the Basics

Cuticles are the delicate skin surrounding your nails and play an important role in protecting your nail bed. Regularly pushing back your cuticles with a cuticle pusher and applying cuticle oil will help to keep them healthy and prevent hangnails.

  1. Nourish Your Body from Within

A healthy diet is essential for overall health, including your nails. Ensure you eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to give your nails the nutrients they need to grow strong and healthy.

  1. Hydration, Hydration, Hydration

Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated, including your hands and nails. Drinking water helps to flush out toxins and keep your skin and nails supple.

  1. Be Patient and Consistent

Winter nail care requires patience and consistency. Don't get discouraged if you don't see results immediately. Follow these tips, and you'll be rewarded with healthy, strong nails ready to shine all winter.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR LILY AND FOX MANIS THIS WINTER

Get the Look: First Snow

Winter can be rough on our nails, but fear not because we have fantastic tips to keep your nail wraps and manicures looking fabulous despite the chilly weather! 

Let's dive into the prep game before applying our fabulous nail wraps! We've got to start with a clean slate, so make sure your nails are squeaky clean and totally dry. Give them a good wash and a quick buff to remove any old polish or oils hanging around.

Oh, and those pesky hangnails? Trim them away for a smoother application process. Remember, the key here is dryness - even a hint of moisture can mess with how well those wraps stick, so take your time to ensure your nails are bone dry. This prep work might seem small, but it keeps your nail wraps looking on point all winter!

Okay, here's the deal with applying nail wraps in the winter – temperature is key! Make sure your space isn't too chilly because cold temps can stiffen up those wraps, making them a pain to put on. If it's cold, warm the wraps up by rubbing them between your hands or giving them a quick blast with a hairdryer for a few seconds.

One of our customers sometimes places her glitter wraps near a lit candle so it’s pliable before applying them to her nails! Once they're a tad warmer and more flexible, gently stretch them out to fit your nails just right.

Here's the cherry on top for the perfect manicure – sealing it all in with a top coat! This makes your nails shine and shields your beautiful wraps from chipping and fading, especially during all those winter adventures.

But wait, the TLC doesn't stop there! Keep those hands and nails feeling happy by moisturizing them with a nourishing cuticle oil or a cozy hand cream. Trust us, these little steps make a huge difference, and your nail wraps and manicures will stay gorgeous even when faced with winter's cold vibes!

Last but not the least - Embrace Winter-Inspired Nails!

The winter season is a great time and opportunity to get creative with your nails. Embrace festive designs like snowflakes, reindeer, or cozy plaid patterns. Or, if you prefer a more subtle look, opt for a simple glitter accent nail or two.

    What makes BTS truly remarkable is their ARMY ( official fandom name) – a passionate global fan base that's more like a family. It stands for Adorable Representative M.C. for Youth and it was established on July 9, 2013. ARMY isn't just a fandom; it's a force for good. They mobilize for charity, break records with every new release, and support BTS in every way imaginable.
