Healthy Nail Polish Removal!
Did you know that nail polish isn’t what makes your nails dry and brittle, but actually the nail polish removal process? Pure acetone helps to quickly break down and remove your nail polish, but it dries out your nail plate and the skin around it. Often, you see your nails and the surrounding skin turn ashy and white. Luckily, there’s an easy fix to that! 〰 What you’ll need: ✨ Nail polish remover of your choice – I am using the ZOYA - Remove+ Nail Polish Remover

✨Gel Nails: Pros and Cons💅🏼🤔THOUGHTS?✨
As one of those girls who used to be too simple at everything without getting their nails done, no makeup and no skincare routine, I’m now getting in these habits as if its a need to me. One of those are getting my nails done! Swipe ⬅️⬅️ until you see the before picture 📸 Now, the first time I got it, it actually lasted me for one month. YES! It held on for that long more than my ex did. I didn’t really go to the salon again to get it removed, I just let it peel off from the base naturally until it was safe for me to take it off and grabbed some supplies to take the rest off (NOT RECOMMENDED FOR GIRLS WHO DOESNT HAVE A BEAUTY EXPERT/EXPERIENCE TO GUIDE THEM) Ever since then, I started liking my natural nails back because, its NATURAL of course! LOL This is my 2nd time getting my nails done because I got a great deal for it which gave me my thoughts on getting your nails done if its worth it or not. P. S. This is my personal thoughts based on my experience from someone who never used to get into Aesthetics. PROS makes me confident/feel prettyyyyy!💁🏻♀️ uses my natural nails as the base instead of acrylics can be removed from home not necessary need a fill unless design is fading (if it does, mine didn’t) takes off the need to colour your own nails every time and mess up prevents me from touching my face which was KEY for me CONS can be really expensive can damage natural nails if not taking care of properly from being careful with the gel nail gel nails are a little bit flexible so it can bend and brake easily Nail techs can overfile your nails which the first time did so make sure you get the best one! ✨That’s all I have to say for getting gel or even acrylic nails!

I love my cute jelly nail!! Wanna get the same?💅💅💅
When it comes to nail trends, the most Instagrammed ones usually cost an arm and a leg to get professionally done (like my last $150 trip to the salon for glitter ombre nails). However, I’m happy to report that I’ve found an easy and cost-effective way to create summer nail trend that we all know and love—jelly nails. After all, summer isn’t over just yet. There’s still a month of “scorching heat one day, torrential downpour the next” weather to look forward to. Spoiler alert: you won’t need much more than polish that you already own and a trip to your local dollar store. In case you aren’t that familiar with jelly nails, I’ll explain. Anyone born in the ’90s (or with access to Google) have worn or at least seen jelly sandals—the warm-weather essential available in the prettiest, vibrant, translucent shades. Honestly, your childhood wasn’t complete without them. Fast forward to today where the trend is back and your nails are joining in on the action. Similar to the nostalgic sandals, jelly nails are a game-changing way to play with sheer color and a little texture. In hopes of saving some money while getting our nails all the way together, I found an easy way to create them at home without breaking bank. What you’ll need Your favorite nail polish A clear, non-matte polish A mixing plate/bowl/empty nail polish container Clear nail tips and clear nail glue (optional) Step 1: Start with clean and prepped nails Jelly nails are see-through, so your natural nails need to be as clean as possible. If you want press-on and opt for clear nail tips, you still need clean natural nails so they better adhere. Also, use a clear nail glue (anything tinted may mess up the jelly effect). Step 2: Choose your polishes and apply a clear base coat The colors you choose are totally up to you. However, through trial and error, I learn that really bright polishes make the best jelly nail polishes.Adding a clear base is optional, however, I highly suggest doing if you’re applying the jelly polish directly to your natural nails, as it will keep your nail beds from yellowing. Step 3: Mix your colored and clear polish This is the most important step and the most tricky. You have to get the portions right to ensure that your nail color is sheer enough to get the jelly nail look. I used a ratio of about 2:1, clear polish to colored. Step 4: Apply the mixed polish in thin layers Depending on the proportions that you used for your mix, the number of layers will vary. The most important thing is to make sure each layer is thin. Because the jelly polish is sheer, it’s not as forgiving as an opaque polish. Applying thin layers helps you avoid streaks and bubbles. I applied mine with the same brush that I used to mix polish. Step 5: Let your nails air-dry for a few minutes Of course, we’re going to apply a top coat, but to avoid disrupting the jelly polish, it’s best to let it air-dry a bit before moving further. Step 6: Apply a high shine top coat Jelly nails are nothing without a lot of shine. To seal in your polish and ensure brightness, apply a high shine topcoat. Step 6: Flaunt your jelly! I never thought I’d enjoy sheer polish so much but honestly, it’s a ’90s vibe that I’m all the way here for. If you’re into nail experiments like I am, I would recommend investing in an LED lamp for gel polish. While this DIY jelly nail polish works on natural nails with traditional polish, clear tips cured under a gel lamp really make the colors pop. The next time I do jelly nails, I’m definitely going that route for a longer-lasting manicure.
Can we remove nail polish without involving any harsh chemicals😱😱？
My previous nail removers had included chemicals like acetone, and after using them, I found that my nails were very dry, and for people like me who put on and remove nail polish frequently, it was very damaging. So I started looking non-chemical methods to try. In the course of trying, I've found that both of these methods really work👏💖! One of the most effective ways to remove nail polish without involve any harsh chemicals is simply soak your hands in hot water for about ten minutes. If you have access to a spa, circulating water will help loosen the polish so you can rub or pick it off. This works by hydrating the keratin of your nails, basically getting under the polish and weakening its bond with your nail. This method works best with thick layers of polish! Another method I have tried is the recipes for homemade nail polish removers, mixing equal parts of vinegar and lemon or using toothpaste. It's possible the acidity in the vinegar and lemon might help loosen polish. All you have to do is rub a slice of lemon on your nails and remove the nail polish. Trust me! Whether you want to make a homemade nail polish remover that's safer than the stuff you can buy or you're simply desperate for a way to fix your scary manicure, you must have a try🙌!
