Trick or Treat! Candy Corn Nail Designs


Halloween nail designs Candy Corn
Here are my super cute Candy Corn nail designs. They look great on every nail but my clients usually get just one or two as accent nails. They look super with a manicure done with orange nail polish. The Candy Corn nail design is a good nail design choice because it can be worn anytime for fall not just for Halloween. 

I started the design by shaping the nails to resemble the Candy Corn shape. Next, I applied a base coat. Then, I painted the design using white, orange and yellow acrylic craft paint. I started with the orange then added the yellow and white. 

I like using acrylic paint for nail designs for many reasons. It's water based so it's easy to mix colors and thin the paint to the right consistency, it doesn't clump up like nail polish can when painting a design and it's opaque. Acrylic paint applies easily over nail polish and it dries nice and fast. 

The acrylic paint does need to be sealed with nail polish so it does't scratch off. All the designed nails were sealed with Sech Vite, my favorite top coat.

The Vampire Facelift

vampire
Sounds creepy doesn't it? This is an anti-aging treatment that uses the patients own blood so it has been nicknamed The Vampire Facelift! 

This facelift is actually an injectable dermal filler called Selphyl.  A small amount of the patient's blood is drawn.  The platelets are separated from the red blood cells.  A thickened concentrate called a platelet-rich fabrin matrix is prepared to be used as the filler. It is then injected in lines and wrinkles filling them and stimulating the production of collagen and new cells in the skin.  It lasts at least 15 months costing $800-$1200 per session. 

For more info go to selphyl.com 

 Have a Beautiful Day!

Duct Tape Those Warts!


It sounds crazy, but duct tape can help heal warts! The duct tape is an occlusive covering that helps break down the warts dead cell build up and it seems to cause a irritation that causes the immune system to fight off the virus causing the wart. Here is the process:

1. Cut a piece of duct tape that is 1/4" larger than the wart.
2. Cover the wart for six days. You can shower with it on.
3. Remove the tape after the 6 days and soak the wart with warm water.
4. Now file the wart down using an emery board or a pumice stone. Toss the emery board. Clean the pumice with bleach.
5. Leave it uncovered overnight
6. Reapply the duct tape in the morning to begin the cycle again.

This can be done for up to 2 months.

Make your hair shinier with negative ions

hair collage

Q. Can an ionic blow dryer really make my hair shinier?

A. It can! Ionic hairdryers emit negative ions. The negative ions break apart water droplets into small pieces allowing the hair to absorb the moisture and also allowing water to evaporate faster. This means less hot air blowing on your hair which reduces damage to your hair from the heat. The negative ions also reduce frizz by compressing the cuticle making hair shinier and softer.

Zoya Hazel

Zoya Hazel Nail Polish collage
Are you looking for an amazing blue green metallic nail polish? I am obsessed with this fabulous nail color Zoya Hazel. 
zoya hazel indoor light
 Hazel is a blue green with a fabulous silvery metallic finish and a lovely brightness about it. It also has a bit of gold in it so it looks like it changes in different lighting just like hazel eyes change in different light! Sometimes, Hazel looks more blue. Sometimes, it looks more green. Sometimes, it looks very silver and sometimes, a bit more gold. The picture above was taken in indoor lighting.

It applies smooth and easy with opaque coverage in 2 coats. The glittery particles are smooth on the nails. You can't feel any roughness even without a top coat. Some of my clients hate the feel of rough nail polish.
Here is Zoya Hazel outside during the afternoon in the shade.
And here is Zoya Hazel sparkling in the afternoon sun!

Isn't it so gorgeous! I love it! It's a summertime favorite with my clients as well.  
Find it at salons, spas, Zoya.com and Amazon for $10.00.


Have a Beautiful Day!
