I’ve gotten fairly good at coloring my hair at house – or I suppose I ought to say my husband has. I can’t inform the distinction between when he colours my hair and when the salon does. He watched a pair YouTube movies and we purchase good shade, so it comes out persistently nice. I’ve had a pair DIY successes these days, so I hold attempting new issues which were too costly to have carried out professionally.
One of many massive ones? I like the look of acrylic nails (or I suppose it’s gel/powder today?). I like the shiny shade that lasts for weeks however going to a nail salon isn’t within the finances. These gel manicures run $40-$50 each different week and there are simply too many different issues I want in my life than good nails. At finest, I get a $20 specific manicure twice a 12 months.
A pal posted on Instagram that she had tried nail dip powder at house for the primary time. Her nails have been beautiful! I messaged her and he or she advised an affordable $25 dip set and despatched a pair how-to YouTube hyperlinks.
Buddies. Holy moly. I attempted it out and it’s so darn superior. I attempted it a pair weeks in the past, however I wished to see in the event that they outcome was inexperienced persons’ luck or if it was actually that simple. The primary time was a cake stroll and the nails seemed nice. I saved them on a little bit over every week, eliminated them, then tried to use a unique shade. Uh. Yeah. Simply as simple the second time.
I’m no photographer, so my pictures don’t do them justice, however they give the impression of being superb. It takes me much less time to use dip powder than to color my nails with conventional polish for the reason that dip powder doesn’t require lengthy dry occasions and it’s truly fairly enjoyable. Don’t decide my ‘outdated girl arms’. We’re in the course of a dry Texas winter and I’ve been forgetting lotion these days.
Any recommendations of issues to DIY??
