Recently, I had the opportunity to hear from Jane Park, founder and CEO of the extraordinary beauty business most known for their nail polishes, Julep. While sitting in the audience, I know I wasn't alone in double checking my nails to be sure that my own nails looked great.
Quite often, we are too busy and too focused on paying attention to the details that our job and family require of us that we overlook the small ones, such as getting a manicure or simply painting your nails over the weekend. A personal stylist is a great way to ensure your wardrobe and makeup cabinet are working to your full benefit, and DRES Stylists also help you determine your personal best colors, which includes what is best for your nails. There are two categories of color which your personal best colors are selected from: warm and cool.
Warm colors are those that have a base of red, orange, or yellow that make the color feel as though it gives warmth. We choose warm colors when our own skin has a warm base to it. Some great Julep colors we saw on their website were Lexie, Mariska, and Kristen.
Cool colors are those that have a base of blue, green, or violet that make the color feel as though it is cool to the touch. We select cooler colors when our skin has a cooler base to it. Some great Julep colors we saw on their website were Alice, Claudette and Millie.
Putting the polish on your personal style helps to increase your own confidence and creates a powerful influence over those you work with, as maintaining your nails showcases your personal attention to detail. If you aren't sure if you are warm or cool toned, a DRES certified stylist can help you create a personalized color pallet, helping you determine your fashion style, best colors, clothing needs and your body’s unique proportions.
