nail tutorial!

so i was in my local drugstore and i was getting my passport photos taken and i was rummaging through the clearance section and look what i saw:
as you can see it says it is from top Beverly Hills salons and fashion runways, how could i resist?!
yes that is pure sarcasm, what actually made me buy it was that it was only $2.49 so if it didn't work out i would not have wasted a lot of money on it. But i did it! and i love them! so here is step by step, how i did it.

step one: prep
prepare your nails by trimming the nails and pushing back the cuticles. Buff them lightly to remove the oily layer. Finally, file the edges to give a smooth and clean look.
step two: application

the kit came with the cheetah print foils you see above.

The applicator is to the far left, scissors, a file and then the foils.
1.) remove the punch-out piece from the backing film
2.)grasp the foil between your thumb and index finger, lay rounded edge against the cuticle.
3.) use the scissors to cut off excess.

4.) once the foil is in place, rub all of the areas of the nail firmly with the applicator and cuticle pusher. While smoothing nail foils onto your nails, you can stretch them to avoid creating an uneven surface.
5.) file off and cut off any remaining excess material in a gentle downward motion.
step three: making it stay
i use clear nail polish on the tips and around the edges first, then i brush a good amount over the entire nail, and i have had mine on for almost two days now, with no problem, so they seem to stick fairly well!

this was actually kind of fun doing, and i am keeping my eyes open for different kinds of foils that i can use!
stay classy,

olive oil is perfect for...

removing make up! i have been using olive oil to remove my eye make up for about a year now, i heard about it on a youtube video, and ever since ive never used anything else!

so how do you do it?
1) everyone has those empty containers or bottles laying around, and if you dont go and buy a small plastic bottle with a top that screws on. i use a bottle that used to have almays eye make up remover in it, kinda ironic i know :).
2) buy (if you dont already own) a small bottle of olive oil and fill up the empty bottle you have.
3) finally when you want to remove your make up, take a few squares of toilet paper, a cotton pad, or a towel, and pour a tiny bit (like the size of a quarter) on to it and wipe your make up off!
tada! your done, this is the best makeup remover i have ever found, and my eyelashes are conditioned daily by the olive oil so they aren't dry and break as easily anymore!

if you try it, let me know what ya think!!
