Claw care

Whether they are Vamped out, crazy claws, full on dragon lady or funky nubbins, your tips tell a lot about you! What do you want yours to say about you?
Break out your glass files and think deeply about your lovely paws while I ramble about nails and my beloved nail polish.
Minimalist, no problem. Keep your nails filed neatly, cuticles in good repair and either polish or no. Do not walk about with ragged, chipped polish. Unless you love the idea of being regarded as sloppy and careless.
Nubbins, stubs, shorties and stumppies look amazing in vampy dark shades as well as ultra hot neon's and glitters!
Mid length to dragon ladies can really pull off the deepest darkest vampies, holos and glitters!
Men and polish......all I can say is Yum! A nice man icure with a masculine polish is always Hot! Guy's try more than your standard Black. Grab a deep blue, forest green, grays or check out my friend YB's blog. That man has amazing hands and super sexy nails!
Let's talk cuticles! Lay down those nippers and pick up some cuticle oil, a good remover, a cuticle pusher and patience. Cuticles are there to protect your nails from infections and bacteria, so be kind to them.
Now the most important.... Nail Polish! *sigh* My second love!
My favorite polish brands: Evil Shades (of coarse), China glaze, OPI, Color Club, Creative and the best black nail polish on earth...Wet n Wild!!!!
My favorite shades: Blood reds, any red really, blackened colors are very dear to my heart, Blues are beyond sexy, greens, black obviously, holos and purples! I do own a few pinks and yes I wear them but I am very selective about pink.
My favorite manicure items: My glass file, mango mend cuticle balm and my Seche Vite fast dry top coat.
I promise I will do a little tutorial on my funky french mani and some other
nail art and such. Soon my loves!

Hot color hair: Shocker color

I thought I would offer a bit of incite and or assistance on Shock color or "Hot" color. So you are tired of your natural, everyone has it hair color, and you want something totally different or maybe just a little bit stand out. I do not judge. Whether you want to go Hot pink with Electric blue streaks, Jet black or just add a few pieces of flame red, it's all possible.

First things first, choose a color and be sure it is what you want. It's easy to get there but harder to come back.

If you are going for darker then you are one of the lucky ones as this is as easy as choosing a color, enlisting a friend and going for it.
If you are going lighter or from dark to a "Hot" color then the mysterious bleach could be involved.
Tips on bleach: If you are bleaching to add in a hot color then you can use any bleach as the gold undertones will be covered by your color. If you are bleaching to get pale blond, platinum etc. If you must do it yourself use a blue based bleach to help tone down the gold and I would have a toner on hand just in case you still come up gold. Never use a higher developer than is recommended on the package, never mix color or bleach in metal bowls, never exceed the recommended time and ALWAYS do a test strand!!! Just because it did well the last time does not mean it will this time.

Tips on Hot colors: Semi permanent color's like Manic Panic are awesome and do not damage the hair.
To get color to stay longer and more vivid, I leave it in for at least 2 hours with a plastic processing cap over my hair.
Rinse thoroughly and then gently shampoo. You can also add a little of the color to your regular conditioner to help slow the fading.
If it comes out too bright, use a clarifying shampoo a couple of times to fade it a bit.

General tips on coloring hair:
Use a chap stick on all skin around your hair line,yep chap stick, put a thin layer over ears, back of the neck anywhere that you might get color. This makes it much easier to remove.
An astringent like sea breeze works well to get color of skin if you do miss a spot.

The most important thing to remember is: do not over process your hair! All of the pretty colors in the world won't bring back healthy hair!
