Fun Nail Friday!

Oh, 3/17. Everyone’s favorite alcoholiday (beating Easter by a smidgen)!

Naturally, as it’s St. Patrick’s Day eve, we goin’ green. We had to! Although it’s funny because we all HATE green nail polish! It truly pained us to give our nails a coat of green, but here we go…

Finding a green polish in a deep jewel tone helped ease into this color. Of course, I whored it up with some rhinestones. As usual!

C.H., also a longtime green polish opponent, chose to celebrate the day with little tennis balls. And there’s lots of glitter, so I obviously whole-heartily approve.

I love that LDL had fun with this St. Patrick’s Day theme. Here are her dinosaur egg St. Patrick’s Day nails! Anyone else getting Yoshi flashbacks?

At this point of the post we all know there’s only room for one more thing, and that is this week’s RDC (Resident Dark Cloud)! Congratulations MKL, who says she is boycotting this theme due to not owning green polish.

Well blarney on you and your little dog too! But secretly, I don’t blame you… 🙂

Everyone, be safe out there! And remember: the truth comes out when the spirit goes in!

Drunken Beauty Tips, Part II

Now onto the most time-honored beer + beauty combo: the hair rinse!

I know what you’re thinking. Why waste good beer on my hair? Beer’s only purpose in life is to live in my tummy and make me hilarious!

Well, beer is an excellent conditioner for dull hair. It contains several vitamins and proteins (and malts and hops) that help give your hair shine, softness, and volume! All that yeast in the beer you use will make your hair cuticles swell almost instantly. Pro tip: The darker the beer, the bigger the volume!

How to do it:

Quite simple!

-Open a can of beer, and let sit for an hour to let it go flat.
-Shampoo your hair as usual.
-Pour beer on your hair, making sure it has saturated from root to tip. Massage beer into scalp, and let it sit for two minutes.
-Rinse!
-You can condition your hair afterwards, but it’s not necessary. You’ll notice that your hair is bouncier, shinier, and clear of residue.

Even though I’ll smell like a hot mess alcoholic for a bit, I am very excited for the results this beer treatment will bring! Just ask hair Queen Catherine Zeta-Jones, who swears by it!

Drunken Beauty Tips

Beer. Yum! It’s not just for happy hour anymore, or in my house, for consumption while in the shower. What, doesn’t everyone?

Beer has been a longtime beauty secret weapon, if you will. The Egyptians used beer because they somehow knew that it contained all the hoppy goodness that your skin secretly needs.

And the Egyptians know what's UP.

In honor of this Saturday’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration, I wanted to share some beer-related beauty tips. Has anyone tried these? Let me know! I’ll be trying a few myself!

Beer & Strawberry Mask

The strawberries in this mask nourish the skin and minimizes the appearance of blackheads and whiteheads with its antioxidant properties.

How to make it:
-In a blender, mix two or three strawberries with a few drops of beer.
-Chug the rest of the beer (optional).
-Mix together until the strawberries and beer make a homogeneous mass.
-Apply to face and leave on for 20-25 minutes, or until partially dried.
Rinse with water and pat dry.

Beer, Lemon, Honey, & Olive Oil Mask

For oily-skinned hunnies.

How to make it:
-In a bowl, combine equal parts of lemon, honey, olive oil, and a few drops of beer.
-Apply mixture on face and leave on for 10-15 minutes.
-Pro Tip: Apply before  taking a shower for best results!

Beer, Almond Extract, and Egg White Mask

For anyone who wants to glow! This mask instantly revives tired (& pissed off) skin.

How to make it:
– In a bowl, lightly beat egg white and mix in a few drops of beer and almond extract.
-Apply mixture to face and leave on for 10-15 minutes, or until dried.
-Rinse and pat dry.

And that’s it! Proof that beer can give you more than just a gut and a wicked hangover.  If anyone tries these, let me know how they work out for you!
