Opi Dip Powder Instructions

The gel and acrylic manicure that we have come to love is sadly coming to an end as a new manicure trend is taking the nail art by storm. This technique is the best thing that could happen to anyone’s nail. Introducing the dip powder manicure, a healthier alternative to acrylics and gel polish. It applies in half of the time of acrylic and outlasts gel polish without causing too much damage on the nail bed.

Opi Dip Powder

This odor-free acrylic alternative promotes a cleaner air and environment. It also offers gel-like shine and weeks of wear without the need to light cure. Surprisingly, the process is so easy and anyone can do it.

Simply follow these steps to create a salon-like nails at the comfort of your own home:

Step 1:

Create a smooth surface on your nails by using a manicure block or a nail drill to create an even surface for the powder to be applied to. Prevent the powder from applying by pushing back and trimming your cuticles but avoid using cuticle oils.

Step 2:

Apply a thin and even coat of base coat of your choice. For an even and smooth powder application, make sure you get full coverage on your nail while keeping the coat as thin as possible.

Step 3:

Dip the nail at a 45-degree angle into the powder and make sure that your entire nail is emerged for even coverage. Tap off the excess powder. Repeat steps 2 and 3 as you continue this process across both hands.  Do this one nail at a time in order to prevent the base coat from drying too quickly. For full coverage, apply a second thin, even base coat to each nail again. Repeat the process one more time for a second coat and brush of the excess powder. We used a loose brush to wipe away excess powder from our nails and hands.

Step 4:

Once all the five fingers are dipped in the powder, tap off the excess powder. When the nail is dry to the touch, use a sanitized cosmetic brush to wipe off any remaining loose powder. Apply a second layer of Base Coat and Color Powder. Wipe away any remaining loose powder.

Step 5:

Apply one coat of OPI Powder Perfection Activator to all five nails, making sure to cover the entire surface of the nail. You’ll see the dipping powder color darken and become more opaque. Allow to completely dry. Be sure to cover the edges and cap off the tips of the nails. (more…)

Get a Different Hair Style When You Want with a Hair Gel for Men

Men of today are as conscious as women when it comes to their overall appearance. Perhaps, you’ve seen several colleagues or acquaintance today who are sporting different hairstyles or who appear as fashion forward as their female counterparts. Keeping themselves prim and proper are not what men of today would rather maintain. In a society where looks say a lot about the person, any man would do anything that will make him to be more acceptable. Achieving great looks is a lot easier today, however. With the right product and adequate knowledge in the proper use of the product, anyone can make a total transformation of themselves without even having to be in the salon every single day. If you are one of those who would like to have a different hairstyle every now and then or would like to keep how your hair looks longer in the day, you can get a different hairstyle when you want with a hair gel for men.

Styling Gel for Men

Why Would You Need a Hair Gel?

This product is specially formulated to allow your hair to be styled as you would like it to. There are different types of hairstyling products and hair gels are one of those that are most widely used is the hair gel for men as they provide a better hold. This styling product gives a perfect hold for any type of hair and you will be amazed how you can keep your hairstyle, even if it is quite windy, when you have some of any good quality styling gel for men applied on your hair.

It is made to be of translucent color and usually thinner in consistency than other hair styling products, such as pomades or waxes. However, they can also be considered “lightweight” or “heavyweight” depending on its hold. Unlike these products, however, gels harden on the hair and leaves a stiff yet shiny, wet look. Since it is alcohol-free, you won’t have to worry of having flakes once the product dries off on your hair after some time. Hair gels are also easier to wash out. If you have thin or thinning hair, a lightweight gel will work best for you. On the other hand, a heavyweight formulation will be necessary for those with thick or curly/wavy hair.

When it comes to projecting a great image, it is not just about the clothes and shoes that you wear, nor the look on your face. Your total appeal will also depend on whether your hair complements your face or not. It is interesting to note how a simple change in your hairstyle will make a lot of difference to your overall appearance. Just think of how you feel when you got out of the salon or the barber shop. Does not the experience give a boost to your confidence? (more…)

“Collision of Contradiction”: Mixing Materials

If there are two things I live for in a line, it’s texture and detail (accent on the “e”). Givenchy’s Fall 2012 couture collection gives us just that. From the intricately hand embroidered floor-length cape to the sheared mink dress and cashmere skirts. You know Riccardo Tisci wasn’t playing any games when he designed the halter neck gown, complete with a built in cape, embroidered with sequin both on the outside and inside (Realness!).  Heavily influenced, by a very earthy, native, and even gypsy vibe, this line makes brown the new black. The embroidery detail are like leaves sprinkled across the abundance of mother earth, or in this case, mother material. Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Where am I ever going to wear a dress/cape lined with sequin or a fringed leather cape embellished with tracery?” (I say wear it anywhere, but I digress.) More importantly, this fall couture line is about mixing materials, playing with texture, and really using the plethora of materials that the fall permits (everything from fur to leather to cashmere to sequin to chiffon to cotton). Adding a touch of glamour, mixing materials serves up an evil side order of grandeur. So as you bundle up, mix it up!  Get into the line below!

If I just had to choose, and I mean had to, this would be my favorite! Just tell PETA my mink is dragging on the floor.

Chronicles of a Closet Raider: Mom Edition

Ever feel like your closest is giving you an ole tired heard-it-all-before tease? Well before you go out and buy new clothes, consider my secret addiction—closet raiding. The beauty of having a big family is the more closets you can raid (there are six of us!). I’ll raid everyone’s closet from my 5’2’’ sister to my 6’2’’ brother (If you’re reading this, well, surprise! You’re clothes may be in my room as we speak lol). Anyway, closet raiding is a great way to both mold the styles of others into your own unique style and give you a fresh perspective on our own closet. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen a shirt in my brother’s closet that reminded me of a similar item in my own closet; just knowing how he wears it inspires me to explore different ways I can wear it. Once, I turned a baggy denim button down one of my brothers gave me a while back (that was almost collecting dust in my closet, might I add) into a sort of wrapped mid-drift top that also wrapped around my belt loops like suspenders; but I’ll save that story for another day. Yesterday, I was raiding my mom’s closet for headgear and found this snatching black church hat! (It worked out perfectly because my hair was not prepared for the world at the moment.) I coupled the hat with a black flared leg jumper with a deep-v back that I found on one of my thrifting adventures. I accessorized it with a vintage gold medallion stretch belt, a gold arm bracelet, vintage crystal earrings, a crystal wrapped ring, and electric blue Aldo heels. I normally don’t do all black, I actually lean more towards brown, but I enjoyed the look. Get into it below! It features my older sister. (Yep, she’s older than me lol.) She has such a youthful soul.

Selecting the Manicure Kit For Men

Good grooming and proper hygiene are essential not only for aesthetic purposes. These also require more than just having a shower, styling your hair, and putting on clean work clothes. The modern man knows that creating first impression means more than that. Missing out the smaller details of your bod, such as your nails, may just cause you a lot of embarrassment, so need to make sure that these are also taken care of. Selecting the best manicure kit for men will then be one of the smartest things you can to do to help save yourself of the possible embarrassment that you may experience in any case you may need to have a quick trim of your claws.

Manicure Kit For Men

You do a lot of things with your hands, and it is one of the parts of the body that others get to see much when you during a face to face interaction. Needless to say, you need to make sure that your nails are kept clean and trimmed to the appropriate length and shape.

Going to a nail salon every time you need have your nails cut is not a practical thing to do. Most men do not actually enjoy doing the same. Having one of the best mens manicure kit will just be a good thing to consider, so you can do your nail trimming whenever you need to without having to spend much on a professional manicure

To ensure that your nails will always be looking healthy, you may need to remember the following tips:

  1. Find the best manicure kit that contains at least the basic tools that you will need for proper nail care. You will need to get yourself at least the basics of proper nail care like a good nail file, nail buffer and perhaps some cuticle oil which you can usually find in a nail kit. Remember these are very basic products which can be found in any drugstore and you don’t need to spend a fortune on name brands with these products.

A typical manicure set will include the following tools:

  • finger nail clippers
  • toenail clippers
  • small pair of scissors (for trimming nails, nose hair, ear hairs and facial hairs)
  • file or emery board (or dolphin nail file) (for trimming the side of the fingernails and toenails)
  • tweezers
  • cuticle tool
  • comb
  • shaver
  • shaver blades
  • small pocket knife

 

  1. File down the nails to a proper length with a good-quality nail file. Filing helps trim down nails and remove any bump or ridges that may cause get stuck to cloth fibers, paper, or whatever it is that they can stick on to. However, you will need to file your nails only when it is already about a quarter inch grown from the top of the pink part of your nails. Frequent filing can weaken your claws and cause them to chip off or break easily.

New perfume for Mother’s Day?

Are you wondering why I posed the title “New perfume for Mother’s Day” as a question? Well, it all started with a magazine ad and my bad (good?) decision to have my husband smell it.

“Mmm, that smells really nice!” I had no idea that such a simple statement would make Mother’s Day more difficult. My hubbs smelled the ad in the magazine I was leafing through and fell in love. Two days later, as I was getting ready to leave for the grocery store when he told me to make sure to stop at Ulta on my way home and buy it! He said he couldn’t get that scent out of his head. If that’s not a ringing endorsement, I don’t know what is!

How could I refuse? Hubbs is actually SENDING me to Ulta to buy something? I mean come on! Seriously… take a moment and think about the last time your significant other SENT you to Ulta? Other than the time my hubbs wanted some sunscreen that wasn’t oily, I can’t remember him ever sending me there. Not even once! So I stopped and bought the perfume and there you have it. But, I am a mom and I just got a new perfume. That’s weird right? I mean, Mother’s Day is coming up in a little over a week and perfume is a perfect gift! So now what?

I’ll have to get back to you to see if my hubbs and the teenager come up with any good ideas for for Mother’s day now that the tried and true option of perfume is already covered. But, if you haven’t picked out a gift for your mom, perfume might be the answer! There are always great sales and incentives on perfume this time of year.

At Ulta you can get a free bag with purchase (I got the cornflower blue one!). Sephora is offering extra points on fragrance purchases. Pretty much every store that sells perfume has some sort of incentive right now. Really, what mom doesn’t love a new bottle of perfume? Well, except for that mom with really bad allergies. I know her personally… definitely don’t buy her perfume.

Oh! And in case you’re wondering, my new perfume is My Burberry Black. It’s not a summer smell in my opinion, but it is beautiful. It has notes of sun-drenched jasmine flower and peach nectar with a touch of rose that are deliciously intoxicating. I know my hubbs is loving it!

Are you going to be gifting (or wishing for) new perfume for Mother’s Day? I’d love to know!

Dotticure inspired by spring

It’s a dotticure day! I can never get enough of dots. Whether they are on my nails or a scarf or even a pillow, they just always make me smile! And right now I need to smile and think spring because the weather sure isn’t cooperating!

It’s been raining non stop and it is simply exhausting. I’m ready for sunshine and flowers. I would love nothing more than to be out in the yard tending to my rose bushes. But, it looks like today will be another day of laundry and binge watching Fixer Upper!

MayDotticureFeature

Since I’m stuck inside, I think a fun spring inspired dotticure is in order. I started with color inspiration and I also thought it would be fun to do a semi-skittle. I haven’t done anything like that in quite a while. I landed on a simple Orly White, Color Club Age of Aquarius for a pop of mint, Ulta Stampede of Approval for a neutral and OPI dipping powder for a bit of texture. Why not!?!?!

Layer one on my pointer, middle and ring fingers is just a white base. Then I took the other three colors and embellished the edges with dots. I left the free edge blank for no reason other than the fact that I usually concentrate my accents at the top of the nail instead of the bottom. Today is the day to mix it up!

My thumb and pinky fingers got two coats of the OPI dipping powder. That was one of their Bond Girl colors with a sparkling sand finish. If you’ve used these types of textured polishes before, you know they’re a major pain to remove. But, there are some tricks!

The easiest trick to removing tricky polish is to apply a base that doesn’t stick very well. Oddly enough… those bases tend to hold up really well until you decide to remove them. Weird, I know! I actually did a pretty detailed comparison of some of my favorite options that you can read. I’m not sure how many of these are still available, but you can easily make your own. There is a do it yourself option in my list!

Today I went with the OPI Glitter Off. It should be fine for a couple of days of fun and frivolous dots!

What kind of manicure do you gravitate towards when you need to brighten your day? I’d love to know!
