I love getting my nails done. I once had acrylic nails on for about three years without taking them off and non-surprisingly my real nails went green and bruised. An 'acrylic' nails is a fake nail made of instant setting powder and alkaline and this is placed on top of your nail. Your real nails underneath are getting no air, hence the bruising and color-change. Not to mention if you break a nail, that's also your real nail dented or potentially even ripped off your finger bed. Ouch. Many nail artists will go on pricey courses in order to perfect this art so they can start their own business or they are just doing it for personal reasons.
The autumn season is upon us and it's time to tidy up your nail paint closet by getting rid of those that have expired or have been open for too long and inserting some new nuances in line with the trends of the season.

Press-on nails might appear to be a blast from the past. A decade or two back, press-on nails were typically white, french tip nails, striped, decked out in animal prints, or in lovely floral designs.

I am one of those people who feels the need to switch up their nails every single week just because I get bored on the same ol’ thing after a few days. And loving to paint my nails helps a bit too!

So enough talk, here are some simple nail design ideas that hopefully you can use yourself or will inspire you to add a little flare to your nail art.
I suck at being a girl. No, like- I REALLY suck. I’ve never had a massage, or a facial, I get my blonde hair highlighted 3 times a year- which is basically unheard of, and the only time I’ve ever had my nails done at a salon was for my senior prom- almost EIGHT years ago (wow, i’m old now.)
Everyone loves to spend a little time pampering themselves. One way to do that is by going to the nail salon, but they are often overcrowded and cause you to waste a lot of your precious time. Another issue if the awful smell that comes from the liquid used to create acrylic nails. This liquid can cause headaches, nausea and dizziness, in the long term it can cause you to develop other conditions. The worst part of all is the bill, in some salons, it can cost you anywhere from fifty to one hundred dollars for one full set of nails. Then these nails will need to be filled in every two weeks and that could cost you an additional twenty-five to fifty dollars.
There are a variety of manicures to choose from. Including your basic polish, gel, acrylic, and dip powder. Excluding traditional polish, every type of manicure uses acrylic based ingredients. Including dip powder, powder gel, or SNS.
Having your nails done is a popular treatment, I doubt that'll ever change. But for those of us who would rather buy what's needed and do a DIY version, this is the guide to prep your nails.
Hello my little lovelies!
So it is no secret that I have been experimenting with different nail designs, and recently dipped my toes into the world of dipping powders!

Every girl deserves a good pedicure every once in awhile. Especially during the summer, our feet should always be ready and looking good for a pair of sandals or day at the pool. Yet, who can always afford to hit the spa and spend $60-$100 every time?
