Winter Nail Care with Skyy Hadley and Sally Hansen

Often times when we think of the negative, long-lasting effects the winter weather can have, we think of our skin - not our nails. But, nail care is just as important as skin care this season, as it tends to be the time when our nails are most prone to chipping, peeling and general damage. In order to make sure your mani stays moisturized and in mint condition this season, celebrity manicure and owner of As U Wish Nail Spa, Skyy Hadley is shelling out the best winter nail care tips.

1. Start with a Clean Canvas
Hand cream is a necessity for winter hydration, but too much of it will make your nail polish come right off. Be sure to use nail polish remover before each polish application to remove surface oils, and make for a cleaner and more long-lasting manicure.
2. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Cold, dry air and a chilly climate are going to suck the moisture out of your skin, and this includes your hands, nails, and cuticles. Apply and re-apply a nourishing cuticle oil such as Sally Hansen Vitamin E Nail and Cuticle Oil as needed throughout the day to avoid hangnails, cracked cuticles, and peeling nails. Seal in the moisture with a heavy-duty hand cream, and you'll be good to go.


3. Never Go Naked
Think of nail polish as a strong suit of armor for your nails. Having a fresh manicure makes you look polished and put-together and at the same time prevents your natural nails from peeling, breaking, and chipping. Save on time (and extra steps) and use an all-in-one formula with a built-in base and top coat.

4. Use a Nail Strengthener
Create the ultimate barrier of protection using a nail strengthener which will prevent splitting, chipping, and cracking, all while helping your nails grow. Use it as a strengthening base coat - or for those who prefer to go au naturale, paint on one coat for a shield of protection without the polish.
