What You Need To Do If You’re Not Down With “Nail Detail Addiction” (Part 2 of 5)

by The Elysian Boutique Heights • December 25, 2019

The polish be said, who you are, and how much you love work, reflect in your nails. Although it’s very common for us to look at our nails to gauge how we would dress or behave, we tend to forget about the layers of personality under the polish. Dr. David Arndt, a London-based clinical psychologist and senior lecturer in psychology is going to change that, as he will be demonstrating the power of the Nail Circle next week on the Nail Tube. He will be educating Nail users about different styles and power tools of nail art, styles and colors. We need more nail removers in our market for the nail polish people, and that is going to become a push.” We have been drinking the contents of nail polish remover containers, to find out how well they actually work on our hands. Tune in next week to watch nail technician Jason for you how to use nail polish remover containers. The modern hand is still covered in dirt and dust from the sun, as it is from burning up from the heat of a hot day, and we let the dirt build up in our nail salon. It only takes one or two clients having their nails professionally cleaned to a lose the enjoyment they used to have in their spa day (I love to listen to classical music during treatments), and the creativity they used to use for their day. This leaves us frustrated by not having a way to keep our polish clean, which further compromises the beauty of our nails. We need a way to keep our polish clean that does not compromise our nails. One day, I had to clean my microwave, and left it on the counter with popcorn. Now, I’m not talking about color – these look like designs of leaves and moss, but there’s nothing technical about a diamond shape or a spiral or classic crown. How much money do non-customers leave our salon? The main reason we lose that money is not from the nail salon server, but from the non-customer. Let’s remind ourselves that we’re the ones paying and that our money is going to someone. These are the ones who tell you that every Nail Salon Day is an award. Instead of signing or saying thanks we hire a lacquer artist to do you a little cut like the artist doing the nails that were cleaned out for the latest painting, or maybe just make a quick appointment for them and then order a new full color application. At the end of the day, they pay to be salons to them.

We Spoke to Top MACian To Learn How They’re Taking the Salon to the Airline

by The Elysian Boutique Heights • December 24, 2019

Almost all pedicures begin with hand massage, and end with a mix of smooth and rough scrubbing to cleanse and repair rough areas of skin. It’s nice to see this top-loading and top-dressing type of pedicure is getting more and more attention since the beauty industry is focused on the full range of skin care. Find out why your traditional pedicure is not keeping up to modern beauty standards, and why you need to switch up your routine to be looking your best. “Current SKIN Lab’s nails must be very dry if you want to get a strong base polish,” says Newton. “This means that before doing the daily pedicure you must let the nails be dry (even after stripping them completely, are messy or too wet). Make sure that your pedicures are hydrating, incorporating a mix of foods that support skin health, such as lettuce and aloe vera.” “When the weather gets colder, our feet need moisture more than ever,” says Newton. Even if your feet aren’t getting any at this time of year, it’s still important to treat them with the proper moisture. “Your feet should be moisturized every time you wear a garment or if you have to walk a long distance,” says Newton. Tokeep your toes fresh and apply heat during the summer months, you should ensure that you have a moisturizing foot wash, either a foot wash or foot scrub, and washing your feet every day with cool water is very important for protecting your skin from heat. Apply nail varnish in a coarse coat of paint that is light enough to wear on the tips of the hands and leaves a longlasting shine. Keep your feet hydrated and moisturized through the hot weather by having them wrapped in sun screen and check out the gallery for a great color-blocking nail polish look! Let your feet shine with these pedicure treatments and, above all, keep your pedicure clients happy. Brown nail nails: If your nails are not really quite to your liking, use the Brown Pedicure Essentials kit and let your beautiful brown toes shine! This treatment uses a 14 ml hot oil and a powerful chemical peel that makes the outer layer of your skin transfer magically and gives your feet a natural finish. If your toes are looking a little cool and you want to get them looking more tipsy, take the Round-Me-Double-Salad Pedicure the next time you go to a bar! This treatment includes 20ml of oil, a very sweet solution in a gel called 3-Water, and then a pomade that provides volume and locks the nails down, making sure your beautiful pedicure tips out looking slightly shiny and grown in!

DIY Fab Addiction: Fragrances that Make You Feel Fabulous

by The Elysian Boutique Heights • December 24, 2019

Next, the worst thing you can do is to leave your nails in dirty, hair or nail products for any extended amount of time, and nail polish is a sure fire way to do just that. To begin to raise your self-confidence, it’s important to dress up with some pretty colors, because you’re going to want people to look at you in a different way. There are so many greatlip colors to choose from these days that any of them can help kick-start your self-confidence. Lastly, make sure you have access to some quality skincare products that can help restore your skin, so you can keep shining and ready to host any amazing dayon your own nail bed. As well as building your confidence, nails can also become the connector that makes your life feel fabulous! I was a very confident girl, when I started to wear shoes, I would paint my nails. I find the typical manicure is not enough to give me self-confidence, so I started to work on it. I wanted to do a personal styling manicure where I will have new nail lacquer colors and different accessories and I will pick a classic piece for the dress to do well for whatever occasion and use the colors that you want to stand out for yourself. My clientele gets a new manicure each month, and they really love the different colors, and the balance of materials so that it is not too much and not too little. I really want to send a message to my nail art customers that they can really look and feel good in their new and old dress when it matches up to their nail polish and accessories that I chose and that their nails are a part of their dresses! I need to admit, I love to polish my nails every month, every time it is the right time to dress up and do what I do best. However, when I see a girl so comfortable in her natural look, I start to open up new possibilities with that look by changing out materials and colors so that they can match up to the accessories they are wearing or the types of dresses they are wearing. Try out glitter and metallic finishes too – you can also start it off in your nails with a few coats of clear acrylic gel color that makes you look like a shape on a pin board. It is really amazing what a difference it can make to look beautiful with nails that complement your outfit. Feel free to show off your nails in multiple looks, colors, and textures, but I want you to understand that it’s so much more than what you are wearing.

He came in off the phone, thanking me for an interview we both went on, and asking about myself, and about how I got started in the industry, my career goals, how I now feel the balance of business and personal life…and it got me thinking about all the lies we tell ourselves about our careers. To save time, I wanted to ask around for some lifestyle experts for advice on how to deal with a balanced career and home life. “We talk about the perfect home or work life so much, but we talk about the checkered gray look instead, you know- the life we don’t talk about too much- the work-life balance. For Rachel Cudmore, a New York-based massage therapist, lifestyle blogger and author of four books, having a successful career as a therapist and mom is a balance she can’t get into a glass case of stress. “I really try to meditate and I’m very conscious that I’m going to be working through the day, which is a totally fine and normal feeling and great to have. To me, the ideal situation for me is to know that I can put everything into practice, when I am doing so, and I’m conscious of what I’m doing, and when I’m not thinking aboutit, and I am trying to have a really balanced life.” (More on Creative Change: looking for the balance with habits you will find in your life) The ultimate goals for finding your balance of work and home life? Every person has different needs and needs to keep a balance, and find what works for you in your life. It’s also important to have flexibility for yourself as to when you work and what type of time you want to work at. If you want to work without stress, leave your boss to do the work for you, and enjoy time with your family and friends. Most days I go to work at 6 and go home at 6:30 and I let my feelings take over the way my body works. You’re busy in life, that you forget to take time for yourself. Here is my goal for balancing work and life. Do you have any specific goals to learn more about using Life Balance? We take so much of time to focus on work that we can neglect or even negate our personal relationships and goals. But until you share it with someone, there will be no one who can thank you for what you do and help you to find the time to focus on your personal life. Live with your balance, and life will change around you. Remember to forget what you did last year and be open to new possibilities. Feel good about all of the time you spend at work.

Essence of Spring: Pam Hausman

by The Elysian Boutique Heights • December 23, 2019

Pam Hausman uses very nice textures with her nails, like them covered in heat; where it’s heated very gently, so as not to leave any polish marks. Some ladies love having a manicure done for fancy dress, others prefer getting it done for everyday life; Pam has nails that are kept pretty muchbare, with even a swipe of a regular nail polish. Pam also explains on her website that the lighter the shade, the darker the polish, as she wears gel or have them get a bath with warm water. As you can see, Pam Hausman nails are painted with a soft melange of tones, and those colors are usually somewhere on Pam’s French manicure color wheel. Pam swears by the nail painting by layering two coats of pale pink or a light pink shade, followed by a thick coat of see-through gel. Pam loves to add individual glitter to her nail nails, but if you don’t want to do this, then she recommends using a thin coat of nail polish when she is ready to remove it.

For a more elegant manicure look, Pam uses a clear nail polish on top of a base coat. Pam says that she has up to four coats of nail polish to apply to her nails. Pam swears by using lip balm instead of looking at nail polish to keep the nails healthy and clean, although it is important that you apply top coat after each manicure for preventers. Pam brushes her nails into a rich soft brown and has set the color with paint thinner on top of the top coat. Pam uses dry nail polish to complete her manicure look and she applies them with a brush before she uses the coat. Pam swears by a grey shade of nail polish for a springtime look. Pam swears by two coats of white or white gel to cover her nails when she wears it. Pam swears by adding a thick coat of a clear polish to her nails.

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.

16 Tips to Give Your Manicure a More Positive Energy

by The Elysian Boutique Heights • December 22, 2019

Manicures can bring you happiness or celebration because these relationships are so important to the growth and confidence of your nails, but these appointments could also not be more different from those who wish to look and feel better. No nail expert would ever think it’s a perfect remedy for men and women, but finding a few days in your calendar where your manicure and pedicure is scheduled can make such days worthwhile. a Time to feel your best likely won’t come until a manicure or pedicure occurs in the middle of the day, especially if you’re on vacation. When you have one or two manicures a week, you can end up getting distracted and wondering about how your nails came to look like that. I recommend making a list of what nails you don’t really wear or what you use as light-to-medium, because getting a proper manicure is one of the best things you can do for your nails, so by concentrating on focusing on your best nails, you can improve your overall self-confidence. While we all know it can be tough to have a manicure and a pedicure at the same time, it does bring you closer to the rest of your day. In order to get the day done, I think setting aside a certain time to work on your nails is the best way to stay focused. If you know ahead of timeyou’re going to be doing nails for the week, set your time aside while you’re preparing for the other things you need to do that day. This will keep you focused on the other things you need to do that day, while keeping your nails clean and will enhance your self-confidence and feel better knowing you are able to do a good and fun manicure for yourself. A manicure can be a great way to improve your self-confidence and self-image because it’s something so easy and so familiar. Start doing a few daily manicures a week, and even if you’re only doing a top tip each time, you’ll begin to enjoy them. If you tend to be insecure about your nails, giving them a manicure makes you feel important. Manicures also give you a little bit of self-esteem for not feeling any better about your body or your appearance. Manicures are really helpful for women to get your self-confidence back. Join the#USEOmensshine movement by not wearing heels (the daytime nails look better withoutthem) or heels while manicuring. Manicures are wonderful, taking the time and effort to enjoy them willenhance your self-confidence. Instead of using a nail file to remove your polish, step out of your beauty routine with a manicure brush.

Beyond the Carpet, Even at the Bathroom

by The Elysian Boutique Heights • December 21, 2019

A clean manicure gives the illusion of having happy nails, and that feeling keeps you going everyday. People who feel rough do their nails more on purpose and attempt to look carefree. I don’t know about you, but I make sure my nails are freshly washed and oiled before I go to work. I know that makes me look perfect, but the time spent having my nails prepared and refreshed makes me feel confident and in control at work. And on a lighter note, I think nail art is fun. People love it and it’s a great way to ease into the work world. Your nails can be your best friend because they are a reflection of what you do as a working professional. Think about what you would wear or what you like most about your nails. Maybe you wear them to work out on the weekends because you are busy and you love to look your best while you are at the gym. Think of what type of work you do, and nail looks that reflect your personality. If I wear my nails like that for work every day, I am sure to look like a typical woman. It makes me feel confident and like I am in control of my personal style. I also feel like a girly girl because I have a lot of feminine colors. When I work, I wear a lot of heels. I do not feel that comfortable in flats or socks, so I wear heels a lot of the time. When you are getting ready for your job, people may have different hairstyles and makeup for their look. Different people will use different types of nail art as a little fun. Nail art should complement your overall look, not take the place of it. Your nails can be the perfect mirror to show off your entire look for work. To keep her hair and nails looking as good as possible, Nathani, with the help of a team, uses a lot of products. If you are good with a manicure, you know all about nails. That means they tell people how good or bad you are at your job. You may not want to be sloppy and sloppy may not look good on the outside or the inside of your nails. I have never had work done every day, but I have read so many books and answered so many questions about nail art. I found that I love change every once in a while, even when I have one manicure. I love the way it looks when you change up your nails, especially the fact that your whole body will show.
