Fun Tip Friday: How to Make Your Manicure Last Longer

Want to avoid those annoying chipped polish nails for a few days longer?

Try wiping your nails clean with acetone (nail polish remover) before you apply any nail polish. This will remove any excess dirt, oil, or any thing else that may prevent your polish from adhering to your nails properly.

Fun Tip Friday: How to Get Soft Plump Lips

Fun Tip Friday: How to Get Soft Plump Lips

No one enjoys having cracked, dry lips so I’ll share with you my secret on how I keep my lips moisturized and plump!

VASELINE! 

vaseline

I keep the largest sized tub of vaseline by my bedside and apply a large amount every night before bed.

It may seem kind of gross to apply so much vaseline to your lips, but as the night wears on the vaseline soaks in and you want to make sure that when you wake up there is still a light layer of vaseline on your lips. So be very generous with how much vaseline you use, it’s hard to use too much!

Then in the morning you can either take a toothbrush or just a rag and scrub or wipe your lips. I usually just use a towel/rag and scrub the excess vaseline off. And afterwards you should see a big difference!

Don’t forget to apply a chapstick or a small amount of vaseline on after you have scrubbed it all off.

If your lips are very dry it make take a couple days before they are looking and feeling fresh again.

The Perfect Natural Nude Pink Lipstick

The Perfect Natural Nude Pink Lipstick

I have been on the search for a nude pink lipstick perfect for everyday wear. And I found it!

I picked up two promising looking shades from the Kate collection, Matte lasting finish by Rimmel, at Target the other day.

They are both fairly similar in shades. The 08 is more nude and the 104 has more of a pink tint.

The thing I love about these lipsticks is the moisturizing effect! They glide on so smoothly, like chapstick and the color pay off is beautiful! For a matte lipstick they sure do feel like a lip balm!

Sometimes your hair just will not cooperate and seems to have a mind of its own.

You know when your hair just seems like it was electrified by a lightning storm?

My hair is mostly baby hairs, and not so much cause by static, but you can still see a difference before and after I used the dryer sheets!

This trick is most helpful for those who have just straightened their hair, because sometimes the straightener can cause some static.

And not to mention get some fresh smelling dryer sheets to make your hair smell nice and good. 🙂

Favorite Face Masks

mask 3

I am a girl who loves trying new skin care products, especially face masks.

And I have found two exceptionally great facial masks that I’ve incorporated into my skin routine for the past couple of months, and I have noticed a HUGE difference!

mask 2

The first facial mask was one I picked up at a Hand and Stone spa, the Rehab Mediterranean Detoxifying Mud Mask.

This mask is very strong, so I usually do not cover my whole face but rather I use it like a spot treatment. If I am having a few problem areas, I use this mask on the particular spot, once a day for ten minutes. After a few days the problem has completely disappeared! This product was $25, but since I use it more like a spot treatment, this could last for around 6 months.

This next mask is one a few of you may be familiar with as it is one of The Body Shop’s top rated items. This tea tree face mask has such an amazing cooling effect on the skin and visibly reduces any redness on my skin instantly. I use this mask about twice a week, as it is perfect for those hot summer days when you want to cool down and relax.

I actually found out about this mask after purchasing a sample pack from the counter at Sephora. I love picking up a few small sample packs every time I stop by. It is a quick and cheap way to test out a product before deciding to purchase it.

 

 

Thanks!
