  • Here are some fun and creative nail designs to try this Halloween. Top 5 Halloween nail designs

    From head to toe, you can incorporate Halloween into all aspects of your style! Learning the basics of nail art is only one the skills that you will experience when enrolled in a nail school. With the basics and your own natural talent you can create spooky designs on your nails. Here are some of our favorites:

    Frankenstein nails
    Not only is Frankenstein's monster an iconic Halloween figure, but green and black just happen to go so well together. To get Frankenstein nails:

    • Paint all of your nails with two coats of a lime green- or chartreuse-colored polish. 
    • With black polish, draw lines across your whole nail using a small brush or toothpick both vertically and horizontally.
    • Add crosshatches along the lines to give it the look of stitches, then let dry.

    Black cat nails
    Kitty lovers who aren't superstitious will find this nail design to be purr-fect! Here's how:

    • Paint all of your nails with two coats of white polish for a base.
    • Using black polish, paint a half-circle along the tips of your nails – you can opt to apply this to all fingers or make certain nails stand out (we recommend the ring fingers).
    • Using a thinner brush or toothpick, draw two triangles above the half circle to create the ears.
    • With another thin brush, apply two dots in bright green or gold to the center of the black half-circle for the eyes, then add smaller dots in black for the cat's pupils.
    • If you want, you can also apply smaller pink triangles to the ears and a small pink dot under the eyes for the nose.

    Blood spattered nails
    For a more gruesome look, design a blood spattered look on your hands:

    • Apply two coats of a base in a shade of gray.
    • Once the base is dry, dot blobs of red nail polish at the tips of your fingers at various points.
    • Connect the dots together using curved short strokes.
    • You'll also want to make sure that the tips of your nails are lined in red, so it looks like the blood is dripping down from the top of them.

    Candy corn nails
    Got a sweet tooth? Show it off with this candy corn design:

    • Start by applying a base coat of white to all of your nails.
    • Paint an orange strip two-thirds of the way up the nail.
    • Last, paint the top third of your nail is a bright yellow stripe.

    Jack Skellington nails
    Fans of "The Nightmare Before Christmas" will delight in painting their nails to resemble the pumpkin king himself, Jack Skellington:

    • Apply a base of white to all of your nails.
    • For all nails but the ones on your ring finger, apply vertical stripes in black polish.
    • On the ring fingers you'll draw a skeleton face – for this we recommend a thinner brush or toothpick.
    • Draw two black circles at the base of the nail, then add to smaller dots below for the nose.
    • For the mouth, paint a curved line across the tip of your nail, then add small vertical lines (like the stitches for Frankenstein).


  • Consider one of these great costumes to be the hit of your Halloween party. Top 6 male Halloween costumes

    Have you decided that this is the year you'll win the costume contest at the Halloween party? Then it's time to start planning!

    For some spooky inspiration, consider these six popular costumes for men for this year's monster bash:

    1. Superman/Clark Kent: Comic book lovers will enjoy this classic costume option. Enter the party as nerdy journalist Clark Kent and when the moment is right, reveal yourself to be your superhero alter-ego Superman. To get the look you'll need a button down shirt over a superman T-shirt and a pair of dark-rimmed glasses. To get Superman's hair, you'll want to secure your hair in place with gel, and if it's a little longer on the top, you can leave out a little curl in the front center as was seen in some of the Superman cartoons.

    2. Pirate: Though it's been a while since Captain Jack Sparrow has been on the silver screen, the pirate costume continues to be popular. You can opt to be a specific pirate like Jack, Captain Hook or Blackbeard, or you can simply be a sea scoundrel. To complete your pirate look, be sure to include a three-corner hat, boots, a vest and a belt. Pirates are known for the long locks so pick up a wig if you style yours short.

    3. Ghostbusters: Celebrate the 1980s by dressing up as a Ghostbuster. The costume is simple enough – you'll need khaki coveralls on which you can apply the Ghostbuster logo, and don't forget your proton pack so you can zap those ghosts. 

    4. Mr. Gatsby: Literary fans will have no trouble pin pointing your costume if you dress as Jay Gatsby from F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1920s novel "The Great Gatsby." To embody the Mr. Gatsby, you'll want to don a white linen suit with a shirt and tie in contrasting colors. You should also part your hair to the side and give it a little swoop on the top, according to Popsugar. 

    5. 'Duck Dynasty' cast member: This family has gotten a lot of attention for their impressive beards and duck calls. Their popularity makes for a great and simple costume. To emulate one of the family members, it helps if you have long hair and a beard – but don't fear – that's why they make wigs. Tie a patriotic bandana around your forehead and dress yourself up in basic working clothes – jeans and a shirt with a color, or you can opt for camo if you're pretending to go duck hunting.

    6. Lone Ranger: This is another classic costume that's sure to never go out of style. Simply dress yourself in a black suit (three-piece if possible), white cowboy hat and wear that sheriff badge proudly. And of course, you wouldn't be the Lone Ranger without your signature black eye mask.

    If you need styling tips for the perfect 'do, barbering school may be right for you!


  • Apples are a great fall food that are both healthy and delicious. For fall: Roasted pumpkin apple soup

    Living a balanced lifestyle is important for your overall mental and physical health. If you're considering enrolling in massage therapy school, remember to keep your eating habits smart for your overall well-being.

    Consuming a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean meats and whole grains is important. Now that autumn is officially here, there are plenty of favorite fall foods to incorporate into your meal plan, including apples. Whether you prefer the red, green or yellow options, these fruits are a good source of vitamin C, fiber and antioxidants.

    "Apples are high in polyphenols, which function as antioxidants," Laura Flores, a nutritionist based in San Diego, told LiveScience. "These polyphenols are found in both the skin of the apples as well as in the meat, so to get the greatest amount of benefits, eat the skin of the apple."

    Sometimes nothing is more comforting on a brisk fall day than a warm cup of soup, so you can celebrate the season with this delicious and healthy roasted pumpkin apple soup recipe from Eating Well: 

    Ingredients

    • 4 large sweet-tart apples, unpeeled, cored and cut into eight slices
    • 3 pounds of pie pumpkin or butternut squash, seeded, peeled and cut into 2-inch cubes
    • 6 cups reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
    • 1/3 cup toasted chopped hazelnuts
    • 1 tablespoon chopped sage
    • 2 tablespoons hazelnut oil

    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
    2. Toss pumpkin or squash with apples, olive oil, salt and ground pepper in a large bowl. Spread the mixture evenly into a large-rimmed baking sheet.
    3. Roast the mixture for 30 minutes, stirring once.
    4. Add sage and continue to roast for an additional 15 to 20 minutes.
    5. Transfer about one-third of the pumpkins and apples to a blender with 2 cups of broth. Puree until the mixture becomes smooth then transfer to a large stock pot. Repeat the process twice more with the rest of the mixture.
    6. Season what's in the stock pot with the remaining salt and heat over medium-low heat, stirring continuously for 6 minutes.
    7. Serve with hazelnuts and a drizzle of hazelnut oil.
