Quick 5 Min Bling Nails for Paaarrtttaaayyy!!!

(Ok I lied…the nails don’t take 5 minutes to create but it does take less the 5 minutes to apply)

So if u have ever been a bridesmaid or party of the wedding party, especially the bride’s side, then u know it can get pretty chaotic 🙂 If u read my last post, then u know my cousin got married about a week ago, and because I was  so involved in her week-long festivities, I didn’t really have any time to go get myself all dolled up (ie. mani/pedi).

So being creative, I came up with an idea to give my nails an instant makeover (given some prepping of course)

I have a bunch of cheap fake nail kits lying around, and given I have no intention of wearing them, I decided to sacrifice a box for beauty 🙂

I decided to use this specific design because the nail already had a partitioned design

Since my sari was black and purple, I painted the base purple

and obviously painted the top black. Ignore the weird and ugly  flash/distorted color look…this is just a sample nail to show u all what I did 🙂 

Using a glitter polish specifically for designing, I  lined the middle (hang on ladies, I swear the finished product is worth it, hahaha)

Using my fancy jewels that I have neglected to use for months, I bejeweled the nails for my thumb and ring finger

 

So thats it ladies. I busted my hands all week, and five minutes before heading the reception I glued these bad boys on and BAM fabuloso! So while all the other girls worried about ruining their mani’s all week, I got to  be carefree all week and then just as fabulous at the party 🙂 

Oh if any of u were wondering, I didn’t apply the glue all over as recomned that way as soon as the party ended, off came the heel, down went the hair and pop pop pop..off went the nails 🙂

Hope u all enjoyed 🙂

An oldie, but a goodie : Tresseme Heat Tamer

So, today I woke up and decided I wanted to look “fancy” (say it in a snobby French accent). So off I went on a mission to straighten my hair. Having avoided my straighter for the past two months, it wasn’t a total surprise that I burnt my arm, scalded my ear and almost fried my eyelashes….Yup.

Half way through my mission, I smelled burning hair and I thought “Damn! I  forget the heat protector thingy!” Hence my reason for writing this blog today.

For those of that don’t already know, some sort of heat protection is essential when working with hot  tools on the hair. Not only does it help your hair from totally frying and becoming a burnt mess, but it also makes the tool work more effectively because the tool can glide more smoothly.

The product I choose to use is the Tresseme heat Tamer Protective Spray.

Packaging: The product comes in a spray bottle form. This not only makes it easier to use but also more efficient  since the nozzle allows for a huge burst of spray that covers a greater  area. As a bonus there is small latch that you can push which prevents the spray bottle from spraying itself (excellent for when traveling)

Product: Typical heat tamer spray, but it smells awesome! Comparing it to other heat protectant sprays the reason I love this one is because it doesn’t leave residue or heavy feeling. All I do is section my hair into four parts, spray once on each section and comb through  to distribute the product. Not only does it leave my hair feeling soft, but I’ve noticed less split ends when I continuously use heat on my hair over long periods of time.

Pricing: Usually around $5 USD

Overall: By now, most people either have this product or at least heard of it, hence my title. It’s simple, easy, and gets the job done. The only complaint I have ever heard is that it leaves the hair feeling greasy, but that’s only when too much product is used. Therefore ladies, don’t get over zealous with the pretty smell, spray spray, done!
