Beauty Quote of the Month

In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they're still beautiful.
- Alice Walker

Proverbs 16:24

Kind words are like honey--they cheer you up and make you feel strong.

Painting & Decorating Fingernails

Be creative when you give yourself manicures! Add wild colors, decals and stickers specifically designed for your fingernails. 

First, you will need a good surface to work with.

- To avoid air bubbles in your polish, do not shake the bottle.
Roll it gently in the palm of your hands before applying.

- Apply your fingernail polish in three strokes, one in the middle and one on each side, taking special care to avoid your skin and cuticles.

- If you are in a hurry, or plan to redo your nails soon, apply only two coats of polish. Allow the first coat to dry before adding the second coat.

- For longer staying polish, apply one base coat, two coats of polish, and finish it off with a top coat to prevent chipping.

- Metallic nail polishes stay on much longer without chipping, but they are much harder to remove.

- Apply the polish to the edge, underneath the tip of the nail to reinforce the area.

- When you are finished, clean up any additional polish on your skin and cuticles with a cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover.

- Let your nails dry completely for about 30 minutes before doing anything, and do not go to bed with wet polish.

- If your favorite polish is getting old and thick, add a bit of polish thinner or remover to revive it.
