Why We Will Never Get Bored of Acrylic Nails

Aug. 12, 2020
Like an old best friend who never lets you down the acrylic nail has been our trusted companion for as long as we have been getting our nails done. The failsafe choice for those of us who struggle to grow our nails or keep them from snapping when they reach a certain length the acrylic has done us well over the years. A whole host of creative ideas have been seen on acrylic nails from celebrities such as Cardi B, Rihanna and the Kardashians who have helped to elevate the profile of acrylic nails. 
Although they can get a bad rap in relation to damaging the real nails, with proper care (and the correct removal!), this shouldn’t be the case. Acrylics nails are known for their sturdiness and longevity lasting between three and four weeks, ideal if you don’t have the time to make weekly trips to the salon. They also don’t have to be totally crazy and outlandish, a simple short French manicure can easily be achieved, giving you flawless nails day after day. 
Here we have a selection of the finest ideas for you to try now. Don't blame us when your struggling to type on your phone next week!


Cow prints are everywhere at the moment, so why not on your nails as well? This is a fun alternative to take your nail game to the next level. 


Acrylics don’t have to be over the top to make an impact, as seen here on these iridescent mint crystal almonds shapes. Sweet and feminine. 


All the colours of the rainbow; the nude rainbow that is! Shades of mocha, caramel and almond are mixed together with negative spaces to create this modern manicure. 


Logomania is still a big deal as seen here with these chic square nails. 


A great mix of colour for those summer days, these logo nails incorporate gradient tones of neon yellows and greens, topped off with ornate gold and crystal jewels for some extra sparkle. 


If you love a French manicure but want something a tad more daring, look no further than this half-French manicure and half-rainbow nails set, with a clear nail bed and varying shades of pinky tones on the tips.


Can't decide which colour you want? Well, thankfully, the latest Instagram trend allows you to have them all! It is time to give these rainbow nails a go!


Accentuated pink tips with dazzling jewel-encrusted accent stiletto nails are an upgrade on the French manicure.


A different take on the timeless red manicure, these coffin-shaped jelly nails are so current.


Have you tired the shattered glass trend yet? These striking nails mimic the look of ice perfectly.


Pretty in pink, these logo-princess barbie nails take bling to the next level with jewel-encrusted and embellished accent nails. 


A take on the classic French manicure these glossy beauties use an ombre effect to fade the peachy colour to the white tip.


Pastel two-tones nails have been given an upgrade with these ever so cute daisy appliqués added.


Extra-long and extra fierce, why not experiment with animal print to create this stunning finish.

So I decided to use the products I pictured in my first photo (minus my highlight shade and lipstick) I used the #Ace Beaute - Nostalgia Palette[products]#[FiveStars] for my entire eye look. I definitely enjoyed these products. My only advice is to shake the UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation before use (because it can come out watery) but the coverage is absolutely flawless. I was shocked with the consistency the coverage I got. What’s your favorite black owned brands? (I do not own right to the song)

Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?

I did a review on this brand before but in honor of BHM I def had to bring it up again ! #Saltxo - Yoni Shower Gel[products]#[FiveStars] #Saltxo - Femme Rejuv Oil[products]#[FiveStars] I use this gel everyday! It leaves my Yoni energized and clean. I’ve never experienced any irritation and I’m extremely sensitive in that area. It smells very herbal like and a little goes a long way! ($17.99) The Femme Rejuv Oil is a great staple for irritation. I use this baby after my waxes, Emergency shaves, and after getting busy. I find this to be the best oil I’ve ever used down there. A little goes a long way. ($30) This brand is usually always out of stock! She sells out so fast but I always manage to get one thing. I definitely recommend if you love intimate soaps . Do you have a favorite intimate soap ?

Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!

I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
