A groomed brow and set of fingertips can add or take away from your beauty. When a brow is done right, it can do wonders for your face, and bring attention to your gorgeous eyes. When done wrong, you might be mistaken for a Pamela Anderson wanna-be. The same goes for your nails, a beautiful set of hands is framed by them. Read below to find out why.
Your eyebrows frame your face, make sure they are well kept; which includes regular waxing, appropriate shade compared to your hair color, and the shape. The eyebrow should start directly above your tear duct, and should end diagonally from the outer corner of your eye. The arch should be reasonably in the middle. DO NOT OVER PLUCK! Set an appointment with a trusted eyebrow professional and get a neatly groomed shape, that doesn’t leave too little of hair! Avoid drawing in your eyebrows, it can look too fake and often times it is hard to draw on the ‘perfect’ brow. From there, get waxings and color touch-ups every 3-4 weeks to maintain the gorgeous shaped brow you have established.
The Fake Nail Diet:
As many of us know, plenty of us have fallen into the fake nail trap. Where you go and get your acrylic’s put on every 2 weeks for $60.00 a pop. Every now and then one happens to get caught on something or snagged and OH the pain! On top of that, you’re nails resemble more Porn Star than Professional.
Ladies, welcome to the world of natural nails. It’s a great one, where hands are beautiful and there’s no worry over where your nail fell off…boyfriend’s house, classroom, or EEK a place where the nail is obviously yours! You are especially liable to this horrific situation if you paint your acrylics a bright red; you minus well fling them off at people at random! I can laugh at this because I’ve seen it happen, many a time…
As an experienced fake nail fan, I had them for 2 years straight back in high school. I originally had gotten them because the manicurist apparantly thought my natural nails were ugly in comparison to her plastic daggers she was sporting. For some reason, I fell into the trap, figured I'd try it once and see how I liked it. But one day, after much frustration about the damage they had caused my now paper-thin nails, I had them removed. It was like I was a new woman, the world was mine, and my hands had been set free!
Since then, I have come across THE GREATEST NAIL PRODUCT EVER INVENTED. It is sold at Sally Beauty Supply stores and is a simple, clear polish called “Nail Hardener,” which is made by Sally Beauty. It sells for $4.99 and comes in a round bottle. Let me tell you, it has done WONDERS.
When you wear acrylic’s for either short or long periods of time, your nails become thinner and weaker than paper. It’s a horrible situation, polish doesn’t last, and your nails are ugly. I have used this product once a day, every day, for the past 8 months and now have the strongest, longest, most beautiful nails ever..if I do say so myself! They look even better than acrylic’s and I will never go back! I saw results within a week, this stuff is incredible!
All you need to know is that fake nails strip you of your sophistication as a woman. They instantly add that tacky factor to your otherwise, fabulous form. As hard as it may be for you, try the Fake Nail Diet for a month, using the above product, I'm sure you'll be won over for life.
