10 Nail Care Tips

Hey girlies, Here are 10 nail care tips that i have learned from .
1. To harden soft nails soak them in olove oil for 20 minutes every other day for 10 days.
2. To remove stains mix 1 tsp of lemon juice and 1 cup of water and soak for 3 minutes, then was with warm water and moisturize..
3. Do NOT use pure acetone nail polish removers. These are VERY harmful to your nails and nail polish removers in all are pretty bad for your nails so try to get one without acetone and some strengthening components in it.
4. To prevent yellowing give your nails a break from nail polish every once in a while.
5. For a natural glow to your nails rub some petroleum jelly on them and buff off with a soft wash cloth.
6. If you have brittle nails eat more Vitamin B and MSM.
7. Heres a new trick you probably didn't know: file your nails WITH the nail polish on. This will prevent splitting or breaking.
8.If you have brittle nails wear nail Polish more often to strengthen your nails over time.
10. The most important one is to NOT BITE YOUR NAILS!!! AT ALL!

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle

 OMG I LOVE THIS STUFF!!! It makes my hair sooo soft!!! So after you wash your hair you apply this JUST TO THE ENDS of your hair. If you put this higher than your ears you WILL have greasy hair! Then normally i shave my legs or wash my body or something else too pass the time. You don't have to wait exactly 3 minutes. Normally i wait 2-5 minutes but you don't want to wait too long or your hair will get greasy. Then rinse it out. Your hair will be soooo soft! NOW GO EAT A CUPCAKE!

My Favorite Mascara

Hey gals. Here is my fav mascara.
Mary Kay's Ultimate Mascara in Black. I think it makes my eyelashes very long and vulumonous. And it is water resistant so it won't come off if you cry or its raining outside but if you take a q-tip and makeup remover and water it will come off without you scrubbing your eyes off. It comes in at $15 which is kind of pricey but i think it is totally worth it. There are probably better mascaras out there but if i get this one i don't have to pay because my mom will buy it for me! yay! but if i get a different kind then i will have to pay for it:( but you know i still love it so i still use it.

The Perfect Red Lip

Hey gals this is just a tutorial on how to pull of these awesome red lips!

- favorite concealer
- white eyeliner
Step 1: Line your lips with the lip liner and slowly and evenly feather it to the center.
Step 2: Go over your lips with your red lipstick you can use a lip brush but i find that it works the same.
Step 3: Take your concealer and a small flat brush and outline your lips with it. This will give you a clean look and make it look perfect!
Step 4: Take your white eyeliner and line the cupids bow, the outside corners and the bottom lip area. This will make you lips look fuller. If your skin is darker take a super light pink and line super close to you lips.
Step 5: Eat cupcake. Kidding. That would ruin the red lip you just created.
 Lining your top lashes with a red eyeliner and then putting just a little bit of white eyeshadow then applying a thick coat of black mascara will make you stand out majorly.
If you are going for a sublte look ( well, as sublte as a red lip can go) i sugges to do a natural eye makeup with a rosy pink blush to make you look happy and healthy.
Thanks for reading.

Any way here is how to create this look.
- OPI No Room for the Blues

Step 1: Give self manicure ( take nail polish off, file nails, etc.)
Step 2:   Appy Base Coat. Then using OPI No Room for the Blues create a french manicure by using short strokes along your smile line ( line between white part of nail and pink part)

Haul #2-New Boots!

I recently went to DSW and got these new boots. Aren't they CUTE?! They are White Mountain Pinwheel in Brown/Suede. They are really slimming to your legs and I think that they make me look taller... brownie points! The silver buckle adds a point of interest which is really cute. They are round toed which I'm not sure i like but it adds some softness to the shoe. I got it for $70.00 and in case you were wondering I am a size 6. It has a slight thickness to the bottom which makes me almost an inch taller which is good because i am only 4ft 9in. i know.... im short :D Comment below if you want some tips in making yourself look taller. :)

Hair Growing Tips

These are 5 tips on how to get healthier hair.
1.DRINK MORE WATER!!!! I really want to stress on this. You should drink half of your body weight in ounces... everyday! I weigh 95 pounds and that means I need to dink 6 cups a day!
I normally get around 4 or 5.. but i probably need that extra cup!
2.Eat healthier. It is pretty simple just don't eat a bunch of junk and try to squeeze in another fruit. I don't really like fruit so i eat yogurt so i am getting the calcium and (some) nutrients from the fruit in the yogurt but you want to make sure it is all natural to get the full benefit.
3. Getting into bed? Pull out that hair tye! Sleeping with your hair tyed up even if its loose can do some serious damage to your hair cuticles and it can pull and snap your hair as you sleep without you noticing it!
4. Try a deep conditioner. I use Aussie 3 Minute Miracle every couple of days. i work this through the ends of my hair and wait 3-5 minutes remembering that the longer you have it in the more the benefit... too long and it can make your hair greasy. Then i rinse it out in the shower and comb through my hair feeling how soft and healthy it is.
5. Take a Vitamin. Everyone says to take Vitamin E, Vitamin D, Vitamin 3487 or whatever its called. I'm not sure which one is better for making my hair healthier and grow longer, stronger, and faster. So I just take a Multi- Vitamin. This will help with making your hair, nails, skin, and much more much healthier. And since it is a multi vitamin it probably has extra stuff to make you healthier.
lol if you pulled out your hair tye as you read number 3.
