Does anyone have any recipes that work to keep hands and nails looking good in the winter months?

i don't know about nails...
but my hands get dry in the winter and i rub vaseline all over my hands before bedtime and then slip on gloves (the 99cent gloves from target work just fine)... my hands feel/look sooooo much better!

I do the same thing! It really does work - and if you run out of gloves you can use socks. I'm always stealing my hubby's white cotton hanes ones.  Smiley I always use cuticle cream, too, but I don't know how to make it. I buy Burt's Bees' lemon cuticle cream and it smells SOOOO good.

A mixture of half glycerin, half rose water (both available at the drugstore or health food store) smells really good and helps keep hands soft...at least I hope so, cause I made a bunch of it for Christmas last year. Smiley

I use my homemade lip balm on my cuticles and nails (when I think to bother about them).  The base is olive oil and beeswax, with a little honey, Vitamin E, aloe and shea butter added to it.  Very nice.  But the best thing I've found for hands so far is just pure whipped shea butter.  It never fails to make my hands soft.  Sadly, it's wildly expensive, but it doesn't take much to make a difference.  I've found shea butter in my local co-op, and you can whip it (don't overmix!) til it's fluffy and add in whatever scents you like.
