Check out these DIY tips to make your nails look amazing

 

Nurtured and stylish nails will make you desirable, confident and fabulous, but how to make your nails look like that without going to expensive manicures? Check out these mind-blowing DIY tips – and give those nails the looks they deserve!

 

Tip #1 – Keep them strong

 Strong looking nails is something you can do by yourself with the help of the ingredients from your home. One of the best recipes to keep your nails strong and healthy is to use a homemade scrub every night: mix 2 spoons of sugar with 2 spoons of olive oil and apply the scrub to the nails. Keep it for 15 minutes and then wash with hot water.
After couple of nights, you will notice the change in the structure of your nails: they will be stronger and smoother.

 

Tip #2 – Clean it regularly

 We all know that washing our hands several times a day is mandatory, but how many times do you actually clean your nails? Usually takes more than hot water and soap to clean the dirt from underneath your nails. In order to keep them clean and fresh, make sure you use nail brush each time you wash your hands.

Tip #3 – Moisturize them

 Just like your skin, nails also need to be moisturized and nurtured. There are different kind of nail products on the market, but if you can’t afford them, you can always use a regular hand and body cream. The nutrients from a hand cream will give your nails a shinear look.

 

Tip #4 – Don’t bite them

 Biting, picking or peeling nails can only make them look ugly – and no one wants to see a gorgeous woman with terrible looking nails. Biting nails can eventually make them weak and more likely to crack.

 

Tip #5 – Use quality scissors

 Nail clippers will only damage your nails – when you use a clipper and press it onto your nail, it will basically tear apart the nail, leaving rough edges and uneven cut. Instead of doing that, invest in quality scissors which will give you a better control over shaping and cutting the nails.

 

Tip #6 – Wear gloves

 Cold water can seriously damage the quality of your nails. If you’re doing some activity that involved leaving your hands in water for a while, make sure you use rubber gloves. It may be uncomfortable at first, but it will prevent nails from cracking.

 

Tip #7 – Eat healthy

 Healthy nutrition is an essential point in maintaining strong and healthy nails. The best ingredients which helps your nails grow are green vegetables and nuts. They contain vitamins E and D and iron which gives a shiny and stronger look to the nails.

 

Tip #8 – Use high quality nail polish

 Before you apply a nail polish onto your nails, wash them in hot water and soap for 30 seconds or keep them into water and white vinegar mix. That way the nail polish will last longer and you will get a shiny look with only few covers. Always choose a nail polish with vitamin E.

Wedding Day – Best Blow Dryers On The Market

Blow drying hair is an effective, time saving technique that provides even drying in place of natural patchy layers of wet and dry tresses. It leaves hair voluminous, tamed and shiny, and cuts down work time by half, if not more. Considering the variety of hair drying machines out there, ranging from as little as $15 to as high as $500, it is essential to rate out the few top products from the list according to user reviews. Many dryers can leave the hair damaged and frizzy and not in the state intended after a blowout, while others can be used quite regularly and not prove a threat to the health of your hair, provided professional expertise and fortification is sought regularly.

A list of the top six products in the market, starting from the best, is as follows:

  • CHI Rocket Dryer: With a user rating of 10.0, this $170 product is acclaimed for its lightweight and easy-to-handle built. Its controlled temperature management that prevents your room from steaming of heat, and its ability to leave the hair fine, healthy and shiny without the dry, brittle sensation puts it on top of the list of standout products, and a highly recommended choice as an easy way to blow dry your natural hair.
  • Elchim 2001 Professional Hair Dryer: Another 10.0 rated product, this hair dryer is known for its powerful operation that wraps your work up in a matter of minutes. Its ability to leave your hair smooth, silky and straight adds to the benefit of shortened treatment time. Because of shortened exposure to the warm air, your hair will suffer less damage over the long run. Working on all hair types from curly and frizzy to flat and lackluster, this $140 product has good recommendation. 
  • Harry Josh Pro Tools Dryer 2000: A heavy investment of $300, this 8.8 rated product is known for being a good choice because it works incredibly to shorten the span of drying long tresses from 40 minutes to a mere 15 minutes. It is also energy efficient and works on all hair types. With custom buttons like ‘ion button’, which keeps the frizz under control, and the ‘cool shot’ button that finishes off the look, it is a highly recommended product despite the high price tag.
  • BaByliss Pro TT Tourmaline 5000 Dryer: With an 8.7 user rating, this product is well rounded on all sides, being a $125 purchase and providing a finished look of healthier, shinier hair easy to manage within a short time frame of ten minutes.
  • Remington T-Studio Pearl Ceramic Professional AC Hair Dryer: A strong and stable airflow coupled with an affordable price of $40 and an 8.2 rating, this product is known for leaving a lot of volume to your healthier-looking tresses.
  • Conair Ion Shine 1875-Watt Styler: This $36 purchase is ideal for thin hair, and has several styling options that couple with the drying effect to leave your hair thicker and more manageable, with a rating of 8.0.

Gag Gifts for Wedding Anniversary : Just Say NO!

Gag Gifts For a Wedding Are Not Appropriate

A lot of people forget that a wedding is supposed to be about the bride and groom, not about their own immature inability to think about anyone but themselves!  Last week we were at Charles and Maude Hanson’s wedding, which was exceptionally funny except for someone decided they thought it would be hilarious to get a gag gift and completely ruin everyone’s good time!

One for the brides ex-boyfriends, who was invited for who knows what reason, brought stink bombs to the wedding from a local prank store that sells gag gift ideas for occasions more associated with bachelor parties and frat parties… not weddings.  Right as the bride said “I do” her ex-boyfriend let off a stink bomb right behind the priest!  Insanity ensued and the entire church was cleared an fire department called in, all because of some terrible prank.

I am sick of men thinking they can come to a wedding and completely act like fools.  Weddings are an honored tradition, not a frat party to throw stink bombs at.  I am so tired of all these people ruining good old fashioned weddings with senseless and offensive pranks.  Next time I see someone even think about buying a gag gift for a wedding I am going to absolutely make sure that they get punched square in the mouth.
