CND Shellac Layering Guide Header

CND Shellac is one nail treatment that won’t be disappearing anytime soon. Since launching in 2010, the in-salon treatment has been popular the world over. The shade range continues to increase and that is a popular drawcard, but did you know that you can also layer the shades to create new ones? Last time I posted one of CND’s colour layering guides you all seemed to go crazy for it. It has continuously been one of my most pinned posts since Pinterest came to the masses. However, that was quite some time ago and I feel we are well overdue for some more Shellac colour layering guides. As a special treat, I have 3 brand new guides for you.

Pin them, print them out or bookmark them to take with you to your next Shellac appointment so you can pick a customised shade that you love.  Continue Reading

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

someecards.com - All this anxiety about my hair turning grey is turning my hair grey.

I wouldn’t call myself an “expert” on Anxiety but if I were to rank my level of expertise based on personal experience I guess I would say I am an expert. I have battled anxiety and depression all my life, and recently I told you all about it. Even if you aren’t a suffer of full blown anxiety chances are at some point in your life you have been nervous or anxious. They are natural human emotions and there is nothing wrong with admitting you suffer with it. However, there is something wrong with anxiety when it causes you bad beauty habits.

When my anxiety would flare up the first thing I would do is turn to one of my many destructive beauty habits. Biting my nails, pulling out my hair, biting my lip … the list goes on. I have caused near permanent damage to myself on certain occasions when I couldn’t control my anxiety, and I know I am not the only one.

Today I am going share with you how I got over each of the bad beauty habits I would turn to when suffering anxiety. Some of these tips may even help you break bad beauty habits you have that are unrelated to anxiety so have a read and tell me what you think.  Continue Reading

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
