It seems that the holiday season has gotten off to a fast start this year, so it’s time to add a little seasonal sparkle to your mani. The Jin Soon Holiday Toppings Nail Polishes ($48) three color collection encompasses all aspects of popular nail trends, including metallic coloring, glitter and texture. You could wear the polish solo or throw it over one of your favorite polishes for a modern dual look. Each color has individual attributes that separate them slightly from one another. Gala is a golden color composed of an array of finely milled rose gold particles, Fete is a pinkish purple color that consists of multidimensional specs of glitter that will catch the light from all different angles, and Soiree (my favorite) is made up of a geometric mix of randomly sized and spaced silver “diamonds” mixed in with darker onyx pieces. Whether you want to try a darker or brighter shade this holiday season, be sure to try out these amazing new polishes.
A blast of heat from a hair dryer can often turn your shiny, smooth locks into what feels like hay. After asking several stylists for a healthy hair solution, I seemed to get the same answer: the best place to make a change is with your hair dryer. The one that seemed to get the most votes and was said to have the best results was the T3 Tourmaline ‘Featherweight 2’ Dryer ($200). This ionic dryer eliminates charged particles which helps cut drying time in half, while allowing hair to retain moisture for healthier results. It is clinically proven to reduce frizz by 73%, increase body by 86%, increase shine by 19%, increase the comb ability by 33% and increase style retention by 48%. With results like this, it’s worth the hefty price tag!
Every year around this time, my hands become super dry and chapped and no matter what I do to prevent or cure it nothing helps — until now. I recently was browsing around The Body Shop and I came across their Hemp Hand Protector ($10 on sale). This dermatologically tested lotion is formulated with Community Trade hemp seed oil to treat and prevent extremely dry skin, which is most of the time caused by cold weather. This lotion will not only soften your hands, but it will help protect against the toughest weather, even after washing!
