Newspaper Nails Manicure


How To :
- Apply a thin layer of your favorite base coat. Then, apply two coats of any polish in a light to medium shade.
- Find any newspaper on-hand. Cut ten 2" x 1" strips (one for each nail), and set aside.
- Dip the whole nail into a small bowl of rubbing alcohol. Then, dip one newspaper strip into your small bowl of alcohol and shake it out.
- Overlay that newspaper strip directly on the nail bed and don't move!
- Take an alcohol-dampened paper towel and apply light pressure on the nail like a temporary tattoo.
- After 10 full seconds, slowly peel off the strip and you'll see the ink imprint. Repeat this process for each nail.
- Allow nails to dry again for five full minutes, then seal the deal with your favorite top coat.

    How to Wash Your Hair Properly?

    You may do it practically every day, but do you really know how to wash your hair the right way? Using the correct techniques can make a world of difference in your hair’s health, bounce and shine — but if you’re making some common mistakes, you could be damaging your strands without even knowing it.

    1. Start with a rinse. 
    Just like your laundry needs a rinse cycle before you add detergent, hair should be thoroughly wet before you add your shampoo. “Hot water will open the cuticle, which is good for removing any dirt or product trapped in the hair,” says White. Another bonus: “When your hair is rinsed in warm water, it loosens the oils through the scalp and opens the cuticle so it is able to absorb the oil” in your conditioner, says Saviano.

    2. If you have long hair, condition first. 
    Yes, really! “If you have hair beneath the shoulders, protect fragile ends from drying out and further damage by running a small amount of conditioner through them and lightly rinsing, before any shampooing. This will not only keep ends healthy, it will fill any holes in the cuticle with moisture, making it smoother and boosting shine,” says White.

    3. Lather up — but only at the scalp. 
    “You only need to shampoo the hair at the scalp, particularly at the nape,” Saviano says. White agrees. “The best way to lather up is from roots to ends. The hair closest to the scalp is the youngest and will inevitably be the oiliest, while the end of the hair is the oldest and usually driest, most fragile part of the hair.”

    Don’t use more shampoo than you need; both Saviano and White say that a quarter-sized amount of shampoo is enough. If your hair is particularly long or thick, go ahead and double that.
