Ah, winter – a time of twinkle lights, carols, and festive parties that shimmer like snow. Of course, here in Pittsburgh, winter is also a time of bitter cold, whipping winds, and the kind of dry air only an old furnace can create. In putting together our nail guru gift guide, we here at Nail Klub have kept all sides of the season in mind – we’ve curated a little collection of products that are sure to both capture the holiday spirit and nourish parched nails. Whether you’re treating a friend or treating yourself, this little list is worth checking twice!
First up, a party-perfect roll of nail tattoos. The Glitz and Glam set features an eye-catching assortment of pretty patterns in matte and metallic shades. These tats apply just like regular temporary tattoos, meaning they’re a super-simple way to add last minute flair to a mani before dashing off to a posh occasion. Check out our tutorial to see these shining statement-makers in action!
Winter’s dry climates can easily lead to cracking cuticles. An easy way to rejuvenate needy nails is with a DIY scrub, such as this pink peppermint potion. Mix together sugar, coconut oil, a splash of pomegranate juice, and a drop or two of peppermint essential oil to create this snow-like stuff. The sugar exfoliates, the coconut and pomegranate return moisture and nutrients to the skin, and the peppermint aroma will make the whole room feel merry and bright!
This time of year, the whole world seems more luminous. Get the nails to match with a little loose glitter! You can find these super-fine sparkles in a rainbow of hues online. Glitter is great for sprinkling over a stencil, dipping French tips into for added glitz, and dusting over nearly dry polish for a pop of radiance. Your nail guru will be all aglow when she spots a few pots in her gift bag!
What can’t washi tape do? Not only is this patterned paper tape a delight for do-it-yourselfers, it’s also the bestie of nail art aficionados. Its modest adhesive means it can serve as a stencil without pulling at your first coat of polish. And washi tape’s thin, softer construction makes it a great stand-in for nail decals. The only hard part? Choosing which patterns to gift your gal!
