Even though we're in the heart of fall right now, it's never too soon to start prepping your wardrobe (and your beauty shelf) for the new, chillier season. That's right—winter's arrival will be here in no time (in some places, the first snowfall has already happened), so it might be wise to start thinking ahead. Maybe you want to scoop up a cozy but chic coat that'll keep you warm when the temperatures drop into the low 30s or perhaps you're in search of some durable snow boots for that dreaded morning commute? Well, we've got you covered.
Today's focus, however, takes us into the world of beauty. Specifically, to the nail salon. We've rounded up some seriously strong winter nail design ideas that will instantly upgrade your manicure come December (they'll make for some great Instagram content, too).
