Do you have non-existent nails?

If you do, then you should probably consider getting acrylic nails. There might have been occasions where you wanted to do some pretty nail or wanted to attend a wedding with attractive nails. Watching your sister getting her beautifully long nails done must be painful, as you often wonder why you somehow ended up in the genetic cesspool. Thankfully, it’s the 21st century, and you no longer have to feel that way. Get acrylics! Everyone’s doing it!

Make sure that you get them done at the salon, though! It’s not something that can easily be done at home. Unless you’re a manicurist or you have trained in doing acrylic nails, it is suggested that you get them done from an expert.

But, Before we learn how to apply acrylic nails, let’s take a look at the Acrylic nails pros and cons.

Pros And Cons of Acrylic Nails

Pros

  • Acrylic extensions are suitable for women with brittle and weak nails.
  • Acrylics are good for women, who have a bad habit of chewing their nails as they are very hard to chew off. What better way to ward off an unwanted habit than making the damaged area as pretty as possible?
  • Acrylic nails have been around longer than their counterparts, so, most nail technicians at salons and spas have a lot of experience about how to apply and remove these nails. You don’t have to worry about side effects as such.
  • They are cheaper than their counterparts. The lighter on the wallet, the more the happiness. Agree?
  • The primary benefit of acrylic nails is that if one of them breaks, it can be fixed at home by using the right tools. You don’t have to spend a bomb again to get them rectified.
  • They last longer than gel nails.

Cons

  • They can damage your natural nail underneath, and it can be hard to grow out your nails with acrylic over them. Also, damaged nail is a breeding ground for fungus and bacteria.
  • As Acrylic nails are artificial enhancements, they present a fake look. You need a very talented technician who can apply your acrylics as close to natural ones.
  • Application of acrylic nails involves the use of strong chemicals and formation of fumes. Some women may have an allergy to such substances.
  • You need refilling every month which means extra expenditure.

Now, let’s look at the steps to be followed to apply these nails.

How To Apply Acrylic Nails?

Step 1: Prep The Nails

Image: Shutterstock

Always start with clean nails. Providing a smooth base helps the acrylic material to go on better. Remove any nail polish and push back the cuticles.

Step 2: Trim Nails

Image: Shutterstock

The manicurist will probably trim and file your nails while leaving a few millimeters so that the nail extension can be stuck.

Step 3: Buff Nails

Image: Shutterstock

She will then buff your nails so that the surface of your nails are a little rough. This rough surface makes it easy for the acrylic to stick to.

Step 4: Nail Primer

Image: Shutterstock

A nail primer would be used to remove any remaining moisture and oil from the nails. Use a cotton swab with acetone to clean the nails and then apply the primer over the nails. Some of the primers contain an acid called methacrylic acid. Be careful as it may burn. You can also use the acid-free primer if you are unsure.

Step 5: Application Of The Tips

Image: Shutterstock

This is where the actual application begins. The tips would be filed according to your nails and will be applied with glue to your real nails. The glue should not touch your skin. The nail can be cut and sized according to your specifications.

Step 6: Prepare The Acrylic Material

Image: Shutterstock

The acrylic liquid would be poured into an acrylic dish and some of the powder into another dish.

A word of caution: The fumes are strong while using acrylics so this should be done in a wellventilated area.

Step 7: Pick Up the Acrylic With The Brush

Image: Shutterstock

The manicurist will dip the brush all the way down into the liquid. Make sure there are no bubbles. She will brush any excess liquid against the side of the dish to prevent it from dripping. Then, she will run the brush against the powder so that you get a moist ball. This is the material which is to be spread on the nail.

Step 8: Apply The Mixture

Image: Shutterstock

Without touching the cuticles, she will apply the mixture over your nails and smoothen it out as it is being applied. The transition between the tip and your natural nails should be smooth. Apply another layer if required.

Step 9: Let It Dry

It should take about ten minutes to dry. Once this is done, buff and file the nails to make them smooth.

Step 10: Finishing Touches

Your nails are ready to be painted!

There are a few things you would want to consider before getting acrylic nails. Let’s check them out.

Things You Must Remember When Getting Acrylic Nails

  • Keep Your Nails Healthy: It is extremely important to keep cleaning your nails. Especially since there is an entire layer covering your real nails. Make it a point to regularly clean your acrylic nails. Use a soft bristle brush under and around the nails to clean hard dirt. Then use a cotton swab with some alcohol to clean around the cuticles and under the nails.
  • Find Yourself A Regular Manicurist: Finding a manicurist that you can regularly go to makes life so much easier. She will understand your concerns, and since she knows your nails and your problems, you can save time trying to explain.
  • Keep Your Nails Dry: Whenever you wash your hands, dry them completely! If you leave them wet, there are chances for your acrylic layers to lift and also a fungal growth! Wear gloves if you are doing the dishes.
  • Oil Your Nails: Dry nails can break easily. Use a neutral oil such as rapeseed oil to keep them moisturized.

That’s all about acrylic nails.

Although acrylic nails have their cons, they also have their pros too. If you want to be able to have long nails, but find it difficult to grow them naturally, then this is probably a very attractive option for you. I understand that if you are used to having short nails, then it will likely be very distracting at first when you get acrylic ones, but I am sure you will eventually get used to it. Well, don’t shy away to try them out! Do let us know how it turned out for you!

How To Avoid Getting Lipstick On Your Teeth

How To Avoid Getting Lipstick On Your Teeth

How To Avoid Getting Lipstick On Your Teeth Afsha Rangila Stylecraze January 10, 2018

You spend all that time to pick out the perfect shade of lipstick, finish your entire makeup, and go to the party. Unfortunately, you look in the mirror and find that your lipstick has bled on your teeth. Not a great sight! So, how to prevent lipstick from getting on your teeth? Follow some simple steps to prevent a lipstick disaster.

How To Keep Lipstick Off Your Teeth

  • The easiest thing to do to prevent lipstick on your teeth is to suck on your finger. Just put your finger in your mouth and pull through. This will get all the lipstick that is on the inner part of your lip.
  • Another way to prevent a lipstick faux pas is to use a lip liner on the inner part of the lip as it is less easy to transfer.
  • You can use transfer-proof lipsticks. They come at affordable rates and can promise an incident-free evening.
  • Blot your lipstick with a tissue paper by keeping it between your lips and smack your lips. This helps in keeping the lipstick off your teeth. Some lipsticks contain oils that cause the lipstick to spread. Blotting will eliminate the excess oil.
  • Application of excess lipstick also transfers onto the teeth. A quick way to blot the excess lipstick from the lips is to apply some transparent/translucent loose powder and dab it with a sponge or a brush.
  • Use a straw while drinking as this prevents the lipstick from transferring onto your teeth.
  • Avoid biting your lips. Not only does it look extremely unattractive, but biting your lips transfers the color onto the teeth as well.

Now that you know the different ways to prevent lipstick from getting on your teeth, here is a step-by-step procedure on how to apply lipstick properly so that it will not lead to any embarrassing situations.

How To Apply Lipstick In A Proper Way

You Will Need

  • Lip Balm/Lip Conditioner
  • Lip Scrub
  • Lip Pencil
  • Lipstick
  • Lip Brush
  • Translucent/Tinted Powder

Step1 : Apply Lip Balm

Start the makeup by prepping your lips. Apply a lip balm/lip conditioner as this will make your lips appear smoother and softer. You can also use a lip scrub prior to the application of the lip balm for a non-flaky effect. Allow the lip balm to stay on for a good five to ten minutes for it to get absorbed into the lip.

Step 2: Line Your Lips

Try to match the shades of the lip pencil and lipstick as this helps you to have a stronger base for lipstick application. It also intensifies the color of the lipstick.

Start applying it from the highest point of the cupid’s bow and outline your lips following the natural lip shape. Then, use the same lip liner and fill the entire lip. This serves as the base for your lipstick and prevents smudging.

Step 3: Apply Lipstick

Apply the lipstick all over your lips with a lip brush. You can also directly use the lipstick bullet for application. If you feel the lip balm applied previously is slicking off your lipstick, then apply some translucent or tinted loose powder all over your lips to provide a good surface for your lipstick. Then, run a clean, thin lip brush all over your lips to spread it evenly everywhere, even on the fine lines of the lips.

Step 4: Suck On Your Finger

Once you are done applying the lipstick, gently suck on your finger, and as you pull out your finger, you will hear a popping sound. This technique removes the excess lip color from the inner part of the lips by transferring it onto the finger.

This is how you keep lipstick off your teeth. Wasn’t that a great makeup trick? No more embarrassing moments when someone points out your lipstick-infused teeth! Now, smile your way into people’s hearts!

How To Grow Nails Faster And Stronger

How To Grow Nails Faster And Stronger

How To Grow Nails Faster And Stronger Komal Kaviliga Stylecraze January 10, 2018

Jealous of all your friends who have gorgeous long and strong fingernails?

It must be really annoying when you’re trying to grow out your nails but they just don’t seem to grow! You wait and wait, but to no avail. They chip, and break, till you are forced to trim them. And so, your efforts of growing them out have failed miserably once more. Don’t give up! You haven’t tried everything just yet.

But first, let’s look at exactly why your nails aren’t growing.

Reasons Why Your Fingernails Aren’t Growing

There may be many reasons your fingernails have stopped growing. Do you do any of these?

1. Bite Your Nails

If you’re guilty of biting your nails on a regular basis, it’s time to stop, pronto! I mean it! This habit leads to multiple bacterial infections that slow down the growth of the skin and nails in that area. Try keeping your nails polished so that you make a conscious effort not to bite them.

2. Skip The Base Coat

When you apply nail polish, make sure to not skip the base coat. This acts as a protective layer between your actual nail polish and the top layer of the nail.

3. Chip Off Your Nail Polish

Avoid doing this at all costs! When you chip off nail polish, you’re most likely peeling off the topmost layer of your nail. This will only make your nails weak and brittle.

4. Excessively Use Gel And Acrylics

If you go to the salon to get gel or acrylic nails too often, you’re not giving your natural nails the time to grow in strength. Gels and acrylics are great once in a while, but don’t make this a regular habit since they’ll affect the natural growth process. If you nip the chance of letting your nails grow in the bud, what chance will you have?!

Best Vitamins For Nail Growth

Here’s is a list of vitamins that can boost the growth of your nails. Let’s take a look at them:

1. Vitamin H (Biotin)

Biotin helps in the growth of nails, hair, and skin. Biotin can be consumed either through foods or in the form of supplements. Either way, you would be required to consume around 30-40 micrograms per day to ensure healthy nails. Biotin can be found in foods like bananas, avocado, and salmon.

2. Folic Acid (Vitamin B9)

Image: Shutterstock

Vitamin B9 or folic acid is essential for cell growth. This means that it can help in the growth of nails as well. Folic acid can be obtained from foods like leafy greens, eggs, beets, and citrus fruits. In order to ensure and promote healthy nail growth, one must consume 400-500 mcg of folic acid.

3. Vitamin A

Vitamin A is vital for strengthening the tissues, bones, teeth, and nails. It is also a popular antioxidant. This ensures that the damage causing toxins are expelled from inside the body. If you prefer vegan options, vitamin A can be found in foods like grapefruit, spinach, yams, and apples. It can also be found in non-vegan and meat options like eggs, liver, and milk.

4. Vitamin C

Remember when your mom told you to eat oranges to avoid catching colds? Thar was for a very good reason. Oranges, or any citrus fruits for that matter, are rich in Vitamin C, which is great for combating bacteria. It is also a strong antioxidant. It is very important to consume foods that contain Vitamin C or take supplements, as the body does not produce this Vitamin. It can be found in blueberries, citrus fruits (oranges, limes, and lemons), tomatoes, leafy greens, and strawberries.
