Foot Health, Ulzzang Toes (2)

Don't feel like you have to hide away because you feel your feet are less than perfect. We're on to our second step into great looking toes so you can wear your cute string sandals for the summer with pride.

Foot Health: a good way to maintain good foot health is taking multi-vitamins and getting natural oils to moisterize your feet after a good soak.
The Vitamins will promote healthy nail growth and be rid of dark nails and the problematic dark black line down the middle of the nail.
The natural oils such as sweet almond oil and emu oil will go through all the layers of the skin. this will soften feet and prevent it from cracking and becoming infected.
Also with clipping your nails, file them instead. This is actually more hygenic to your nail and will stop your nails from snagging on your socks or stockings.

Deordorizing Foot Sprays: Are a great buy to maintain healthy feet, Burt's bee's, Bath and Body Works Spa Blue Collection and The Body Shop have foot sprays that freshen up your toes. Natural peppermint oils and eucalyptus bring your tired feet back to life, and yea they smell great too.

Sweat proof socks: New Balance and Asics make sweat proof socks, this will be sooo good to your feet, allowing your feet to breath better during a run or jog and they will smell better being that sweat and your sneakers won't be making a intant slow cooker to your feet. Making red flags to your feet leading to various types of foot fungus.
So don't feel down on your feet anymore, your feet are what get you everywhere without complaint. They take on all of our weight of you,and run with us, kick for us, and skip along with us. But now it's time to make them beautiful again and give them much needed attention in a better way.

Ulzzang Feet ( How to keep your feet looking their best)

Since this is "Vegas Nails" it would only be right to talk about toe nails. The foot as a whole is pretty much neglected by women now. Yes you may paint your toe nails, but what about the rest? I thought we could tackle this in parts. Skin, Health,Nails.
In this post I will help with the skin of the foot. Is it dry, rough, and calloused? does it even have odor?
Skin of the foot: Well first soak your feet evey other day or the least at the end of the week,Just boil hot water in a pot or tea pot and put two tea bags in it (any kind of tea bags are fine , I use green tea lipton). After the water has cooled to where you can take a certain amount of warmth, pour water into a basin to where you can put you feet in. Then put a tablespoon of baking soda to naturally deodorize the foot.Epson Salt is also good to put in, but only a tablespoon.
Soak your feet for at least thirty minutes, you will be relaxed and your feet will be softer and smell so good. Keeping this up will also improve the health of your foot. Dodging Athlete's Foot, Foot Fungus and infections.
After This always,always apply lotion to the Skin of the foot. For very dry feet try Carmex new Healing Cream (you can find it at Walgreens or CVS, $1.99) Or Sally's Beauty Store "Barefoot" foot Balm. And Before you got bed put socks on to retain the moister of the lotion applied to the foot. And a good pumice Scrubber and Foot File to maintain you skin.
Other Tips: Where open toe shoes or sandals when possible, the foot will be able to breath and not get a chance to build odor.
Don't Ever wear heels or Sneakers too much, Heels can damage you natural arch of your foot and sneakers will just spoil your feet. so try to find a happy medium ( they have many shoe brands that are easy on your feet and still look pretty nice, ask your local Payless Sales person or Famous Footwear and or Rack Room Shoe store.)

Ugh! Yellow Nails!

Yellow nails only look nice when it's on purpose and your heading to the beach. But having naturally yellowing nails is not great at all, But don't worry there is a quick and inexspensive solution. Now when your nails do yellow it's mostly because the nail polish you have used tinted your nail this yellow ( Black and Matte Finish will do this quickly) and also because you are always wearing nail polish. The nail does need to breath, so you may have to go without nail polish for a couple of weeks, But if itching to wear something on your bare nails put on a clear top coat. Another reason nails yellow is poor health, do yourself a a favor and buy Hair,Nails, and Skin Vitamins.Ok, so these are some of the things that can give you yellow nails and now here are some of the solutions.

Hydrogen Peroxide:This will instantly whiten and Brighten nails, Just take a cotton swab or cotton ball and soak it in the the solution, run the cotton swab over the nail bed and you will see it will lighten into a few shades.

Water and Baking Soda Bath: This should be done every couple of months to have a nice and bright white nail bed, this will also keep them healthy.Just mixed half a cup of water with a table spoon of baking soda stir this cloudy mixture and have your bare nails soak in it for twenty minutes. you nails will be a bit dry after this. So be sure to throughly wash your hands and apply a nail oil onto your nails. If you can't find already made nail oil, you can use rose oil or sweet almond oil.

So no need to worry anymore if you continue this routine you will have beautiful nails. So go and be the best you.

(The nails above are made by me and are called "Orange Graffitti" and "Golden Flower")

Good Enough to Eat!

Here is some press on nails I've done with a more sweeter style. Please Check out these out.
The donut and cupcake are handmade by me, I used Sinful Colors for the green background and chocolate accents. The stippled white and pink sprinkles are with Wet n; Wild. Top Coat is By Sally's.
Orange Slices are by Sally's Beauty supply store. All that glittersa is all purchased at a local Dollar store. The nail polish had a thinner consistancy so it dried rather quiclky.
Rest of the set.
These were great to make, they came out really cute with glossy finish. all hand designed with lace accents and dots of yellow and deep orange. White color is with Wet N' Wild and the rest in Sinful Colors.

Unique Nails

Each day you wake up you, and when you get dressed you dress as yourself. You know what you like and don't like and think only your own thoughts. So it would only make sense that your personality and vision be exspressed in your style. It's in your clothes and your hair all the way down to your toes and fingers. Which comes too, what was your favorite nail design? and what made it special and exspressed you? Was it the diamonds and glitter, or the best white tip? Or was it because it had scenary and reminded you of a vaction you once had? Go ahead and tell you nail story.
