How To Remove Gel Nails Header


Like most women, I love going to the nail salon to get my gel nails applied but when it comes time to removing them I can never be bothered going back just to have someone else take them off. Removing them DIY at home can be risky because that is when damage to the nail is more likely to occur, however, if you do it correctly you can keep your nice long new nails without any tears. Today I am going to share my tutorial on how I remove my Bio Sculpture gel nails at home, and I will be doing it to the awesome Missoni inspired gel NOTD. This technique can be applied to any gel nails, shellac, gel-polish hybrids and to even remove glitter nail polish (life saver!!).  Continue Reading

Remember how I went to Cosmoprof North America way back in August last year? Don’t worry if you don’t, I forget things too. In fact, I kind of forgot to finish unpacking my luggage until … oh let’s just say …. Christmas! Despite having already shared my hauls from Milani, CVS, Ulta, MAC Cosmetics, and Sephora Part 1 and Part 2, there are in fact a lot more products I haven’t shown you yet. Yes, yes, I am sick and I have issues. I know.

Today I am going to show you the mega nail polish haul. To be honest, I don’t know what I was thinking collection all this nail polish because even if I painted my nails everyday for the next 100 years, I will never get through it all. On the plus side, they are all just soooooooooo pretty.

Some of the polishes you will have seen before as I pulled those out in the early days, but the majority were buried deep in a bag. Here I go ….

End of Year Sales Fashion Shopping Inspiration

The Boxing Day and End of Year sales are in full-swing. While this can be a fab time to pick up a great deal, it’s not such a money saver if you buy things you don’t need or really want. Having a shopping list of what to buy is one of my most valuable tips for being a savvy sale shopper. However, I’ll admit that sometimes there are things out there I didn’t know I needed. Sometimes, I need someone to introduce me to the things I didn’t know (or forgot) I needed. That’s what I’m offering you some end of year sales shopping inspiration by sharing some of the great goodies I picked up during the Cyber Week sales.

These are the beauty and fashion goodies I got during Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday.  Continue Reading
