Trick or Treat! Candy Corn Nail Designs

Halloween nail designs Candy Corn
Here are my Candy Corn nail designs. I tried to shape the nails to resemble the Candy Corn shape. They look so fun on every nail but my clients usually get just one as an accent nail and they don't want their nails shaped like Candy Corn! Candy Corn is a great nail design because it can be worn for fall not just for Halloween. 

I started the design by applying a base coat. Then, I created the design using white, orange and yellow acrylic craft paint. I like using acrylic paint because it is water based, is easy to mix colors and thin to the consistency I want and is opaque. It also dries nice and fast. 

All the designed nails were sealed with Seche Vite, my favorite top coat.

Happy Halloween!

The Vampire Facelift

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.

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.

7 Tips to Make your Lips Look Younger

Q. How can I make my lips look younger and fuller?

A.  Here are 7 tips to help make your lips look younger!

1. Use a clean wet wash cloth to massage away peeling skin on your lips. Immediately massage  moisturizer to your lips and the area surrounding the lips. Eye cream works well. Now add a layer of lip balm to seal in the moisturizer.

2. Avoid licking your lips. It makes them chapped.

3. Apply lip balm at each night.
4. Apply lip balm. Blot it. Then, apply lipstick.
5. Use a lip liner that matches your lip color to outline your lips just a little bit outside of your natural lip line to make them look fuller.
6. Lipstick should complement your skin tone. Try a  creamy medium rosy pink shade or a soft coral pink shade. Avoid dark colors which can make your lips look small and very light colors which can make you look pale.
7. Add lip gloss to the center of your lips only to highlight and make them appear fuller.

Homemade Mascara Recipe

I came across this recipe to cook up your own mascara. I have not tried it yet but it looks interesting. This mascara gets it's dark color from charcoal. Not the grill kind, though. Activated charcoal, which has been used to treat stomach problems. You can find it in health food stores. Coconut oil and aloe should be easy to find in drugstores and grocery stores. Beeswax is used in candy making and cosmetics among other things. You can find it easily online. I would imagine a store that sells candy making supplies may have it. Let me know if you try it and how it is!

Homemade Natural Mascara Recipe
Makes 1 mascara container
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons aloe vera gel
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon grated beeswax (more if you live in a hotter climate)
  • 1 capsule of activated charcoal
  • Clean mascara container
In a small saucepan over low heat, add the coconut oil, aloe vera, and beeswax. Stir until melted. Open the activated charcoal capsule and add to mixture, stirring until evenly combined. You can add another capsule if you want a deeper color.  Remove pan from heat and let cool to room temperature. Scoop the mixture into a funnel-shaped bag that you normally use for decorating a cake with icing and squeeze into the mascara container. The mascara will last up to six months.

Find empty mascara tubes and other supplies on Amazon.

Garcinia Cambogia

Q. What is Garcinia Cambogia?
A. This is a hot item in the weight loss industry right now. There is a tree that grows in Southeast Asia that produces a pumpkin shaped fruit. The fruit is called a variety names including Malabar tamerind, assam fruit, brindal berry or brindle berry.

The fruit is used for cooking, as medicine and is food for wildlife. It also has an amazing fat burning effect!

The extract from the fruit, hydroxycitric acid (HCA), helps to block the enzyme, citrate lyase, that turns excess carbs that we eat into fat. The carbs burn instead of turning into fat.

HCA also raises the serotonin level in the brain. Serotonin regulates mood, appetite and sleep. It helps us feel happier curbing emotional eating and helping us sleep better.

You can get garcinia cambogia easily in supplement form from health food stores and online sites. Dr. Oz recommends that you look for a supplement that contains at least 50% HCA. Take 500-1000mg before each meal. Take no more than 3000 per day. He also says to check the ingredient list and avoid fillers and artificial ingredients.
