HOW TO DO GEL NAILS AT HOME

HOW TO DO GEL NAILS AT HOME

I started doing my own nails about 5 years ago and haven’t looked back. When I graduated college and started making money, I treated myself a little too much. I had never made a salary before, so this felt like a lot of money. What I didn’t realize is that you still have to subtract living expenses, student loan payments, etc. So, I didn’t actually have as much “fun money” as I thought. When I was looking to cut costs, going to the nail salon fell under the unnecessary category. However, I love being put together and having my nails done, so I learned how to do it myself. In this blog I will show you how to get salon quality gel nails at home and SAVE THAT MONEY!

HOW TO GET A POLAROID PICTURE WITHOUT THE CAMERA

HOW TO GET A POLAROID PICTURE WITHOUT THE CAMERA

Polaroid pictures have been back in style for a while now, getting your hands on a truly vintage Polaroid camera can be expensive, and buying a new one isn’t exactly cheap either. I love the instant photos that Polaroids provide. It’s so fun to take these cameras out on the town or vacation, but I never seem to get a great photo. It usually takes me more than one shot to get a decent picture. I’m still learning how to not have dark or washed out photos using a Polaroid camera, lighting is definitely a struggle for me. The film for the actual camera can range from $1-3+ per photo. That’s insane when you think about how many shots you take on an iPhone to get only one good photo. On my phone, I have 100 photos of the same thing, there’s no way I could afford to take that many photos using a Polaroid camera. If I figure out the secret to taking the perfect photo on a Polaroid camera, I will be sure to let you all know. In the mean time, I found a life hack that will make getting the perfect polaroid so much easier.
