Brazilian Beauty Secrets: The Messiest Way To Get a Perfect Manicure [ ELLE ]
Being a nail polish addict myself, I was very intrigued to read this article and find out what Brazil’s beauty secrets are. I find this idea quite interesting–but it definitely wasn’t what I was expecting! They suggest making your manicure as messy as possible, getting it all over your skin and then using tools to clean it up perfectly for the most long lasting manicure possible. Would be curious to try it out, but the cleanup time doesn’t sound too fun!
This type of article is one of my favorites to read because I love learning about various dupes for cheaper alternatives to more expensive products. I can decide where it’s worth saving and where it’s worth splurging. Refinery29 has compiled a great list from skincare to hair care to makeup: well-worth a read.
Essie Button is one of my favorite YouTubers at the moment and I love checking out her blog when I get a chance from time to time because the girl simply has great taste! I find myself often being easily persuaded by other bloggers and YouTubers to go out and purchase a product when hearing them rave about it, so seeing that Essie is also a victim to this trap is quite refreshing (especially since I usually have to buy everything she suggests).
