UV " ultraviolet" lighting is almost obsolete at this point for gel manicures. In comparison, LED lights take anywhere from 5 to 45 seconds to harden polish whereas the UV lights took 2-3 minutes per hand or even in some cases, 2-3 fingers at a time! The curing process takes at least 30 seconds (nothing compared to time spent waiting for nails to dry the old-fashioned way). In 2014, a small study found that the UV radiation emitted from different gel lamps varied greatly. Thi
Family isn't always about the people in your life who are blood relations. It's the people in your life who want you to be in theirs. Its the people in your life who accept you for who you are, support you in the things you choose to do and no what, are there for you. It's the people in your life who love you, respect you, and who you can depend on. Now, That's Family! Thanksgiving is a time to to give, a time to love, and a time to reflect on the things that matter most in
A callus (or callosity) is a toughened area of skin which has become relatively thick and hard in response to repeated friction, pressure, or other irritation. Rubbing that is too frequent or forceful will cause blisters rather than allow calluses to form. For calluses, toss a handful of Epsom salts into a basin of warm water, then soak feet for about 10 minutes. Once the dead skin has softened, use a callus file or pumice stone to rub off the top layers. Continue grind the c
I'm not sure which is worse. Sleeping in a tent in front of a store, or tricking the entire nation into thinking that there's something inside the store worth sleeping in the tent for. How many times do I have to say "excuse me" Before it turns into "Get out of my way!" becomes acceptable? Because only in America, do people trample others for sales exactly one day after being thankful for what they already have. With that being said, Polish Lounge wants to offer a 10% off dis
1. The hard-to-clean area underneath your nail may cause your nails to be extra sensitive, especially if an MMA-based acrylic (Methyl Methacrylate) is used. Though they've been banned for use on nails because of toxicity, some low-end nail salons still it.
2. Acrylics may create inflamed or itchy cuticles if the tools used to apply them are worn out or coarse. Be mindful of those which have sharp odors -- this is a sign that something is off.
3. Depending on your nail str
Calluses and corns are caused by repeated pressure or friction on an area of skin. The pressure causes the skin to die and form a hard, protective surface. A soft corn is formed in the same way, except that when sweat is trapped where the corn develops, the hard core softens. This typically occurs between toes. Other risk factors for developing a corn or callus include foot deformities and wearing shoes or sandals without socks, which leads to friction on the feet. Rubbing or
There are multiple ways to remove hair without paying a fortune. The most common is waxing. Waxing is a quick and cost efficient method of removing unwanted hair, especially on the face. Currently there are two y used types of wax: hard and soft. Hard wax is used on more sensitive areas, like the lips of your vagina when getting Brazilian. Soft wax is used on legs, faces, and underarms—areas that can handle more tug and pull. One of the most common ingredients in all waxes is
Lung cancer, also known as lung carcinoma, is a malignant lung tumor characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. This growth can spread beyond the lung by the process of metastasis into nearby tissue or other parts of the body. Most cancers that start in the lung, known as primary lung cancers, are carcinomas. The most common symptoms are coughing (including coughing up blood), weight loss, shortness of breath, and chest pains. The vast majority (85%) of
