"After a cold winter, nails are usually more brittle and crack prone. It's important to keep your nails and cuticles moisturized. Using a strengthening treatment or base coat under your polish would be helpful in bringing your nails back to life." —Rita Remark, global lead educator and nail artist at Essie. Their Hard to Resist Advanced Nail Strengthener, $11, would be an easy way to incorporate nail care in your day, the hassle-free way. It fortifies and conditions damaged, soft nails for protection, and makes nails noticeably healthier and more resilient in just 3 days of use.
"In terms of nail art trends for spring, it's looking pretty minimalist for spring — the micro French manicure is still going strong; try our Nails Inc. French Mani Hack, $16, for this trend! We're also loving minimal dots at the cuticle, half moon cuticle accents, and also aura nail art is being spotted everywhere." —Thea Green, founder of Nails Inc.
