I feel a little bit like I have been keeping a secret from you guys! I’ve been using the Luminess airbrush makeup system for almost 2 years now but I’ve never really talked about it! I did a little blog post HERE forever ago but I didn’t say too much about it. In reality I’ve been using the airbrush system a few times a week ever since!
I’ve partnered with Clairol to create this post! Enjoy!
For a long time now I’ve been looking for ways to extend my time between appointments at the salon. I’ve been a faux redhead for about 2 years now so my color usually lasts fairly well. I mainly go to the salon to brighten or tweak the color as my mood dictates, and color my outgrown roots. Because my roots are noticeably outgrown at around 5-6 weeks, that is how often I make the (expensive) trek to the salon.
I’ve tried “at home” hair color products before but never had any luck. They didn’t color my roots at all, and the overall color would always fade completely with around 2-3 washes so I was back where I started. Totally useless! Clairol reached out to me to try their Nice ‘N Easy hair color line and I figured WHY NOT! I was about a week away from my salon appointment so there wasn’t any risk. If It worked, I could cancel my appointment – and if it didn’t, I would be getting fresh color anyways! Well needless to say, I cancelled my appointment…
Here are my “before” photos – my roots were grown out probably half an inch:

I’m SO excited about this video because I am finally showing you guys how I do my own gel nails at home!
About a year ago I decided I was totally OVER paying $30ish every time I wanted gel nails. Confession – I’m pretty picky about my nails. I pretty much gave up on regular polish because WITHOUT FAIL I would smudge or chip my polish within an hour. I found out about gel nails (aka shellac aka gel polish) and never went back. If you don’t know about it, basically it is like regular nail polish, only you cure it under an LED or UV light and the polish hardens, and lasts for 1-3 weeks. WE HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY PEOPLE. Up until fairly recently you had to go to a salon to get it done, but now the supplies are so affordable there’s really no reason to do that anymore! Thus I bring you my DIY gel nail tutorial…
