Fun Nail Friday!

It’s finally Summer Blockbuster Season and I could not be more excited!

I’m most excited for Man of Steel although I’m sure you can’t guess why.

Yes, I’m very excited about the…uh…screenplay…

My friend and I pulled together our “Mani of Steel” looks for our favorite day in Summer 🙂

I’m sorry…I think I need a moment to recover.

Enjoy your weekend. I know I will! Okay, I’m done. 🙂

Mela-What? Mela-Who?

I hereby interrupt your lovely holiday weekend to bring you news from a frightening article on Glamour that I read, because nothing puts the fear of God into me like telling me there might be CANCER in my nail beds.

Back to the beginning. Melanoma. It’s a less common (but just as bastardly) type of skin cancer that can occur anywhere in the body that contains melanocytes. What are melanocytes? Oh, just the melanin-producing cells hanging out in the bottom layer of our skin’s epidermis that are primarily responsible for the color of the skin.

Nothing to look at here, kids. Just plotting your demise!

If you polish your nails frequently (like I do), you may be missing a warning sign! Here are some things to look for when checking for melanoma in your nail beds:

  • Brown or black lengthwise stripe on the nail
  • Usually only one finger or toe is affected (and most often it is the index finger or big toe)
  • Brownish or black pigment surrounding the nail
  • African American and Japanese women have a higher risk of melanoma under the nail than any other ethnic group

And I have braved Google images to bring you an example:

I found it kind of funny that the picture was called "thumbnail."

After all of that, I think we kinda deserve to see some happiness, don’t you think? Enjoy and forget the nasty images you just looked at, but don’t forget to check yo’self the next time you take your polish off!

Nothing makes me happier to see a pug shitting cupcakes.

Why wasn't I born as this umbrella? Dammit, my life's a joke.

I'm hope this happy family is still smiling when they're on the inside of my belly.

Alright, I think I’m okay now. And I hope you are too.

Products We’re Excited For!

I saw this product, Living Proof Straight, in a magazine and I’ve been curious about it ever since. The product, a weightless, anti-build up spray, claims to straighten hair, and keep it straight for days at a time. That’s it. But that’s a BIG claim to make, and quite frankly, I’ve been disappointed by these “sleek” products promising me straight hair and Henry Cavill in a handbasket, but I’m an addict. That’s right, a straight hair addict. I would spend anything and go anywhere for my next straightening fix! I feel pathetic, like an Orange County housewife who just realized she’s 32.

LPS, you're my only hope.

Living Proof Straight spray is kind of pricey ($29 for 5.5 oz, $17 for for 1.8 oz), but if it really does what it says, it could possibly take the place of the potentially harmful and ridiculously expensive Brazilian Blowout. All I can say is that I’ll definitely be putting this on my wish list this year! And it’s excluded from all coupons at ULTA, so it MUST be good, right? Anyone try this product yet?
