Nail Polish Facts…!

Nail polish originated in China, and its use dates back to 3000 BC

Shimmer, micro-shimmer, micro-glitter, glitter, frost, lustre, crème, prismatic micro-glitter or shimmer, iridescent, opalescent, matte, duo-chrome, and translucent, are the 13 types of finishes for nail polish.

The most expensive nail polish costs $250,000,Black Diamond King, is made with 267 carats worth of black diamonds.

Nail polish was inspired by car paints.

Nu Nails is an artificial nail made for nail biters by a dentist Maxwell Lappe in 1934.

French manicures imitate the natural colour of nails giving a glossy transparent effect using colours such as beige and soft pink. In manicures, nails are painted in four coats of thin layers; this also reduces chipping or bubbling of the polish and gives a smoother effect.

Revlon is the first nail polish brand established in 1932.

Acrylic nails were created also by a dentist Fred Slack

Hellooo Harmattan :)

image

Its laughable when we say things like Fall fashion or winter fashion.

We do not have Fall or Winter in these parts, our weather is different so it makes our seasons different..
While we have the raining season which is the farmers delight because its good for planting etc.

At this time of the year we have harmattan..!

While there’s the rich smell of dust & sun to dry your clothes in mins or few hours depending on the fabric.

Harmattan is dryer, hazy, dusty, windy & hotter.
The temperature drops in the mornings its cold or very cold depending on where you are with slight fog or heavy fog..!

Its hot in the afternoon with a bit of air but its really hot..!
That you would want to stay hydrated by taking cold liquids all day.

The temperature drops again in the night.. Sometimes its sooo cold that you don’t need the fan/ac .

I hope I was able to give you a small insight on what harmattan feels like..!

Looking Stylish For Less…

We usually believe that owing luxury/ designer clothing or accessories makes us stylish, that’s not true..!

image

You can be stylish by choosing the pieces in your wardrobe carefully & inexpensively.
That goes to say that you can look a lot stylish for less.

Have a detailed plan on what you would like in your wardrobe they go source for it in a discount store or thrift store, you might find them in OK (secondhand clothing) shops.

Most times its your ability to drive hard bargains that gets you the best deals.

Be Fabulous.

Happy St Valentine’s Day.

Skincare #Wrinkles

image

Protect your skin from the sun. The sun is one of the major causes of wrinkling. Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF rating every day. Apply it about 20 minutes before you leave the house. Apply more often If you are sweating or in water.

Hydrate. Drink Lots Of Water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out so aim to consume at least 8 large glasses of water daily. When you drink enough water, your skin will remain moist and supple.

Moisturize. Dehydration and loss of elasticity lead to wrinkles, its in your best interests that you keep skin well-moisturized on the outside as well. Apply a moisturizer that is appropriate for your skin type daily. You can also find moisturizers that contain sunscreen. which plumps up the skin, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Be FABulous..!

2015…!

Having you started making plans for 2015..?
If No, What Are You Waiting For..??
If Yes, *High5*

I don’t believed in outrageous new year resolutions, but I believe in goals that are reasonable and realistic.
What are the things you want to leave behind in 2014?
Do not hesitate to evaluate and let go the things that make you less progressive, the people who surround you with negative comments and negative energy.
You need people who will make your life better and bring in sunshine, let go all the dark clouds and excess baggage.
Do the things that will make you feel good in this new year, pamper yourself, love yourself, put yourself first.
Improve your looks go all out to put up an appearance, but do not over do it.
Find the right clothing for your body type, add more colors to your wardrobe.
Write down the areas that need improvement and work on it.
Its important to have fun, laughter is a good medicine.
Be happy, Be Confident.
Have A Wonderful New Year, Happy Holidays.
