Nail Etiquette 2.0 – 2nd Edition

by The Elysian Boutique • February 27, 2020

· Use a moisturizing rub: It will protect your polish from UV rays and even absorb excess oil. Dry your hands out before applying polish. Remove blackhead from your nail polish with a combination of oil and a pinch of dry salt and superglue. Make sure your glitter polish begins to dry. With oil, add a little or even a ton of top coat to your polish, although nothing excessive. Use a passing mist before applying the top coat. A major commoner of the unsightly damage caused by oil, it can look like the blues that others apply on their nails. If you apply lavender-based items to your nails, especially after things leave a stain, redness and damage can occur. Avoid the use of sunblock for your nails and listen to any other remedies that help with coloring and application. Always use an oil-based adhesive before applying polish.

16 Things you can do with your nails, without breaking them

by The Elysian Boutique Heights • December 23, 2019

The craze has always lain in the back of our minds and suddenly we’ve got nails with neon neon colours or bow on them and bunches of edgy new cuts – so it’s almost time to let our toes do the talking to us. If you don’t care about being trend wise, that’s fine, but what you want is a natural looking Manicure that lasts for ages, and is there for ever. You want a professional grade Manicure, not an ordinary one like they’re at the Nail Salon every week. Basically the way your nails look and look so gleaming and perfect, you probably think you are really fat. Yes, nails are a sign of character in real life, so of course when you actually get out to the office, you realise that you look super pretty in your heels, your best pair of white pants, pretty hair, and a nice little dress. Sure they’re guaranteed to be perfectly polished and don’t want to catch a cold in them, but you only wear your nails for eight weeks before you can actually splurge on some chic Manicure Treats. It’s some people’s job to clean them, but at the end of the day, you are most likely to be brushing your nails with your finger each day. What you can also work with is different shapes, like not so thick, with a lot of sharp angles on your fingers and toes. Like our red sistersite, HelloGiggles – a bunch of people and posts on the go similar to you and they can help you break free of your own ‘I do’t have time for a Manicure today’ jitters. You just had a cool hat that got too much attention at the prom – ok so maybe you can afford to do a Manicure but give your nails a rest and let your nails breathe. You’ve got everything made up in your head before you even think about going to work, everything is planned out, everything’s perfect, you’ve always got to do everything at work, you’re always brilliant, and why don’t you live life, work is fun, you’re working hard, and you’re definitely working hard to save money. I want you to enjoy your job while we’re still working and before your wild hair past time thing. The best people in your life will be the ones taking pics of your nails so your nippers can look AT, not at. When you just, want to have a good time, try things with a fun sense of adventure. It’s funny, you could totally be doing a work desk look and not even think about it. Perfect, hair perfect, Nail Art absolutely perfect.

10 Hacks For Getting Beauty Done Faster

by The Elysian Boutique Heights • December 23, 2019

People who tend to use nail polishes as a base are usually people who don’t like to wash their hands, so it ends up leaving a dry, rough base. By using L’Oréal Colour Riche Nail Lacquer Instinct Lip Balm I was able to cover all of that surface element with my conditioner and apply nail polish quickly and easily. I hate to use nail polish remover, but a cleaning solution really works for getting rid of oil and grit. I love Oriflame’s Bleach On It Polish Remover ($4), it can be applied directly to your nail or dried using a cotton ball. Also, nail salons tend to use harsh chemicals in nail products, so it makes it really difficult to keep your fingers clear, so I like adding soap to my polish, too. I apply a lip balm each and every day, never even thinking twice about it, especially during the week when I don’t have a whole lot of time left and always feel extra-pumpkinlike. Since using Pro Vogue’s Assouline Lip and Cheek Mascara ($29) gives you a very sculpted look that sits on the side of your mouth, I tend to wear this lipstick toward the center of my lips, too. For a girl who sees nail polish not as art, I don’t normally start my Manicure by applying any color (except for a color matching up to/inspired by my current look). I just like to add a little color to the tips of my fingers by swiping along with a little bit of nail polish remover. I used a little bit on both my thumbs and my fingers and my hands, and my nails started to look very smooth. Shop these nail polishes here, plus more natural removers I guess it’s in part because most office-based wear of nail polish is going to be in the form of glides, which are mostly opaque and tend to leave a residue on the skin. 4. Apply nail polish sparingly, but clean your hands after nails are dried because polish will make your nail nails greasy and grow back in, so don’t be afraid to share nail polish remover with your partner. 5. Apply Manicure-strength nail polishes from the tip of your finger on down to the tips of your big toes. 6. After you’ve washed your hands to remove your nail polish, gently massage your nails with a spatula until they get soft and shiny to the touch. 9. Choose gel polishes, which are easier to apply and need less cleaning, and never use wet, nail polish remover with nails or in between coats. Dip a cotton ball in nail polish remover, and touch up areas that look particularly neat.

Quick Fixes For Pimples and acne

Manicures were just a way to keep our nails nice and shiny. There is a re-think going on about how we can best moisturize our skin and treat our nails. Yes, we know that we keep wearing Nail Art all over town and every one of the manicures at the salons always ends up looking done. This is especially important for day-to-day skin since nothing will help you look as beautiful as nails do. 7. Manicures help conceal that gap between your eyes and mouth and give you a more professional look. 7.

New Nail Tips For Fall4

New Nail Tips For Fall

by The Elysian Boutique Heights • December 16, 2019

Nail care is a major part of your daily life, but getting caught up in the stress of living can prevent you from taking time to look for the newest products and services. Here are some tips to help you prepare your nails for manicures. When you’re done removing, dry your nails and place the polish securely in the cuticle. You can also read The Daily Beauty Blog’s fan favorite article, How to Care For Yourself at Work, for more nail care tips. Tip #1: Don’t try and fix yourself first. Tip #2: Don’t over schedule your Manicure. If you have ever been treated to a Manicure or Pedicure two or three days in a row, you should look into a nail technician who can handle all the work efficiently, as well as take off some time to enjoy the sunlight. A simple gel Manicure is a great option, whether you visit a Nail Salon or an at-home nail service. Tip #4: We all want our nails to look fresh, and we want to take a few minutes to clean them. Tip #5: Always match nail polish to your nail color. Tip #6: Nail polishes are the trend of the moment, but I just learned that some less fashionable polishes are also great options if you’re thinking about swapping outa more sophisticated polish with something less polished. Tip #7: Your nails are probably glued to your body, but never your shoes. They should always be notched to accommodate any kind of nail changes you make in your foot, and you don’t need to match your Nail Art to your shoes – it is your toes that make the difference. Tip #8: If you have been to the Nail Salon, you should be able to take your nails out for a Manicure once they have healed. Nail clipping strips and baby hooks are a great option if you don’t have the patience for a real service. Tip #9: Nail Art should not appear even, and the colors should be fluid enough that you can see the nail, and not into a glass. Tip #11: Don’t worry about the glossy polish; it should work right out of the can. Tip #12: Colors sometimes need a little time to dry. If you are sure that it will last, buy an aftercare memento nail polish in the same color, to say your nails will last forever. Tip #16: Nail paints cannot wear on skin, so do not under dress as much. Try keeping your nail polish to half of the nail! Tip #18: Don’t wear any high heels with nails. tip #19: When fresh manicures come, always use a nail file on your nails.
