Nail Moment: Gel Manicure in Buff

8 Apr

OPI-GelColor-My-Vampire-Is-Buff

My Vampire Is Buff OPI Gelcolor is my current color of the moment. A pretty very pale nude color with the long lasting staying power of a Gel Manicure! I’m always picking nude shades, but there are so many different nude shades out there, that I never run out of options. It might be a tad boring, but it’s always classic, natural, and pretty. I feel the most upscale and elegant with a more natural manicure. Sure, its nice to do a little nail art, or express yourself with nail color, but my favorite expression is beauty, and what better way to be beautiful than to tap into & enhance the natural beauty we are all created with?

I’m on day 3 of the manicure and it is still in perfect condition. No chips. My favorite part of a gel manicure is that my nails don’t break, like they do with regular polish. It reinforeces them with the strength that my fragile nails need.

I got my nails done at Nails By Design, on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood. One of my favorite nail places, they charged me $65 for a gel manicure and a regular pedicure. Which is a pretty good deal for both.  I never get gel on my toes because regular polish seems to stay on my toes for weeks, unlike my nails. I’m so rough on my nails too, buttoning and unbottoning clothes at photoshoots, typing, etc.

With my birthday coming up, I’ve been thinking about investing in one of the OPI LED Lights that the salon uses to cure Gel manicures. Apparently LED lights are faster and safer than the UV lights. Although, they are more expensive. I’m on the hunt to spend less by searching on the internet for a good deal. I think that doing it myself will actually save me a lot of money. Gel Manicures last so much longer on me, and are just as easy to apply and remove yourself as regular nail polish if you have the right techniques  (Click here to watch the VIDEO).  The LED Light pays for itself within a few months. I’m going to also try to use my friend’s discount to purchase the actual nail colors and base/topcoats at a PRO shop.

Baby Powder as a Dry Shampoo

8 Apr

36599-00_l

 

Baby Powder isn’t just for babies, and is a must have beauty product. There are so many uses for it, but a favorite and most popular beauty secret is to use it as a dry shampoo.  Using baby powder as a dry shampoo on oily/dirty hair is a great solution to absorb oil and refresh your hair.

There are also great alternatives to traditional baby powder that are more natural & talc-free. Baby powder is reasonably priced and it lasts a really long time.

Shake powder out into palm of your hand, rub together in hands and work the powder into the scalp & roots where hair is the most oily. Once applied, work a brush through root to tip to get rid of excess powder and to distribute evenly.

We Recommend: Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Dusting Powder because it is talc free!

Love,

How are Cashmere Hair Extensions different?​

Hair extensions are not just for adding length. You can achieve volume, texture, chemical free color, highlights and color accents all without the use of harsh chemicals. No longer do you have to wait months or even years to have the look and lifestyle you desire.  Cashmere Hair Extensions will give you instant gratification!

webFINAL diagram hair SUPERIOR

Owning a set of Cashmere Hair Extensions, not only saves you THOUSANDS of dollars, but is the easiest and most convenient hair extension system.  Salon applied hair extensions are extremely damaging and over priced. Cashmere Hair Extensions are a one time payment, with the convenience of at home custom application. Cashmere Hair provides the perfect alternative to permanent hair extensions and look even better! This is the ultimate DIY system for even the most inexperienced user, that only takes minutes to put in and seconds to remove. With Cashmere Hair you can have salon quality hair with out spending the time or money. ​​

What is the quality of the hair?

​Cashmere Hair is 100% High Quality Cuticle Human Hair. The hair cuticle is facing in the same direction which prevents tangling and matting. This High Quality Hair allows for better blending with your own hair and gives the appearance of natural, healthy looking hair.

What really makes our hair extensions the BEST is our gentle dying process, which takes up to 9 – 12 days.  Other 2 day processes, which rapidly dye hair using heavy acid and chemicals, cause damage to the hair. This heavy chemical processing causes hair to loose vital moisture and nutrition. Instead, our process of dying is a very slow process which is the least damaging to hair and gives you the healthiest quality hair, allowing your hair extension to look their best longest. We take the quality of our product very seriously, which is why we set ourselves apart from other companies on a completely different level of quality & authenticity. We have our strands laboratory tested and certified to be 100% Cuticle human hair, the highest quality available. ​

Other companies mask the harsh chemical process by using silicone to disguise the bad quality of the hair to make it feel silky when you first purchase it. After a few shampoos you might notice that the coating come off, and true nature of the quality is revealed.​

Will Cashmere Hair Extensions damage my hair and how long my extensions last?​

No damage will occur, and unlike traditional salon extensions. Cashmere Hair Extensions should last you anywhere between 6 to 12 months, with proper care and maintenance. Clip-in Hair Extensions can be reapplied and styled daily. If using a curling iron or flat iron, we recommend first styling your own hair, and then styling the clip-ins similarly before clipping in. Although, we always recommend using the least possible heat styling while getting the most uses out of the hair before rewashing. It is not necessary to wash your extensions after every use. Keep in mind, just like our own hair, any type of heat wears on the hair in time. These tips will save your own hair & extensions from extra unnecessary heat styling damage. ​ Tip: Always try and treat your hair extensions with lots of love!

​Can I dye Cashmere Hair Extensions?

​Cashmere Hair Extensions are made of real hair just like your natural hair. It is always recommended to see one of our trained professional hair stylist or a professional you trust to assist you with any changes that you would like made to your hair extensions.  Please choose the hair extension color that is closest to your natural hair color, we do not recommend dying the hair extensions, since many of them have already been specially dyed. Our goal is to supply you with the best quality hair extensions possible, and we have a very special dying process that keeps the hair in the healthiest condition. Further dying could damage the hair if not done by our professionals.

Will Cashmere Hair Extensions be visible, will people be able to tell I’m wearing them?

​No, Cashmere Clip-in Hair Extensions should not be visible. The beauty of Cashmere Hair Clip-extensions is that they make achieving the look of gorgeous hair naturally. Once fitted they are a perfect blend with your own hair. They provide unlimited versatility with a natural look and feel. Our clip-in system is suggested to be worn low on your head making it easy to disguise and blend with your own hair. Part of the secret of wearing hair extensions is blending your hair extensions into your natural hair for the most discrete & natural look.

​​

Will Cashmere Hair Extensions stay in my hair, without slipping out?

​These hair extensions make having the look of gorgeous hair easy, fast and comfortable. With in minutes you will have the gorgeous hair you’ve always wanted. Specially designed small silicone pressure clips allow these hair extensions to be put in and taken off in just minutes and without the worry of sliding or snapping open. Our hair extensions are undetectable and natural looking when inserted properly. No teasing is necessary prior to clipping into hair for most hair types.

​​​

​Will Cashmere Hair Extensions work with very thin hair?

If you have very thin hair, Cashmere Hair will definitely be the perfect match for your desirable look. Depending on the severity of the thinning of your hair, you will need enough hair to lie over the top weft to cover it. Backcombing the hair above the top weft can help disguise easier. Ideally you would want your hair to be at least 6 inches long for best results.

What is the length of Cashmere Hair Extensions?

​Cashmere Hair Extensions are 18″-20″ long (47cm-49cm). When worn in the recommended application they automatically layer themselves giving you a more natural look. ​

What color do I choose?

​When choosing a color to match your own hair, choose a color that matches your hair from the middle to the ends. Never choose the hair color of your “roots” as that is always darker. The color match blend for your hair will be from your middle length to ends. So choosing a color closest this area of your hair will give you the best results. If your unique hair color is not available in our color chart, the best options is to place a custom order with Cashmere.

Nude & Gold Glitter French Manicure

Screen shot 2013-03-31 at 8.42.03 PMCSM__GLDNRL_275x275
Nail Art has been really popular this season. All different types of designs, color combinations glitter, and even rhinestones and studs. Nude versions have been my favorite, and I love sparkle so I’ve also been loving the glitter trend. These are also great for wedding manicure ideas.
I like to keep it natural looking, simple and classy when it comes to my nails, but I still want to participate in the nail art trend while it lasts. I never like the over the top looks, some of the nail art can look really tacky and cheesy, especially on me. Here is a recent nail polish application I rocked for the last few days. I got the perfect new subtle shimmer nude nail polish from  Sugar Naturel in Creme Brûlée. I added gold gold glitter sparkle tips with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in #120 Golden Rule (-my all time favorite polish!) I love using this sparkly gold glitter polish on my toenails. So glam and simple.

I also love the look of the rhinestones on nails, but haven’t tried that look yet. (Coming soon!)
Here are a few other nail designs that inspired this look that I came across on pinterest.com:

N° 1 Mermaid Perfume

N°1 Mermaid Perfume

mermaid-product-line-011

Perfume and fragrances are such a personal thing. Everyone is attracted to different scents, and perfume can smell different on different people’s  skin. You should always try out a fragrance before you buy the entire bottle. Most stores that sell fragrance will often times give you a small sample bottle, or make you a sample of it to try. These samples are a great way to try a fragrance out for a week or two before buying it. Sometimes you may like how it smells at first, but after some time, a fragrance will change and develop. The last thing you want is to not like it after wearing it for a while. I’m really picky about fragrances, and very rarely find ones that I like. I was recently given an entire collection of this sweet Orange Blossom Fragrance. This fragrance came to me along with the sweetest note I’ve ever read. This fragrance smells so sweet and floral with Orange Blossoms and lingers like you would want a fragrance to. I even adore the fragrance as a candle, which matches perfectly with the perfume, I keep it in my Makeup Studio and even when it’s not burning you can still catch the lovely scent. The packaging is reminiscent of timeless Chanel. With gorgeous packaging in white, gold, and coral colors, perfect even just to decorate a vanity or dresser. Mermaid perfume is just as  fascinating and mysterious as the mythical creature.  I have one of each items from the collection, a perfume rollerball Fragrance  of 100% perfume oil, the Perfume Spray Fragrance, and the Mermaid Candle made of 100% Chemical free vegetable soy wax, with a 60 hour burn time.

You can purchase them at: http://www.mermaidperfume.com/
