  • Do these holiday-inspired nail designs this season! Top holiday-inspired nail designs

    Almost a year after the surprise release of her self-titled album, Beyonce made another surprise release: Her own nail designs! Just in time for holiday season, Beyonce partnered with Los Angeles-based nail company NCLA to create the four new nail decal designs, all inspired by her album. If you love learning about nail art and celebrity nail trends like this one, you may want to consider enrolling in nail technician schools. In the meantime, though any of Beyonce's nail art would look fabulous to wear to your holiday parties, take a look at these five great holiday-inspired nail designs you can do yourself this year:

    1. Snowmen
    Give your nails a cute and whimsical look with a snowman design from Peace, Love and Polish. First polish your nails with a pale blue or green background color, then let your nails dry. Gather white, black and orange polish, and a nail art dotting tool or toothpick. Paint several white circles on each nail, making them big enough to draw small snowmen faces on. Then use your dotting tool to create black eyes and a dotted black smile. Finish them off with triangular orange carrot noses, and add extra dots of white in the negative space if you'd like. 

    2. Christmas lights
    A string of Christmas lights across your nails makes for a pretty and festive design you can show off at holiday parties! Choose a neutral base color that will contrast with a black string and red, green and yellow lights. Paint the base color, then use a tiny brush or dotting tool to draw a looping black strand that stretches across all of your nails. When the black paint dries, use a small brush to draw oval-shaped lights in alternating Christmas colors on the top and bottom of the line, like twinkling Christmas lights. 

    3. Negative space holiday colors
    Negative space manicures are one of the top nail art trends going into 2015, according to The Guardian, so they're the perfect way to show your holiday spirit. The style of nail art leaves most of the nail blank, and uses paint to create graphic designs. Choose two or three holiday colors of your choice, then use them to create designs on your nails, after only painting a clear base coat. For instance, alternate red, green and gold nail polish to paint the moons or a single stripe on the left side of each nail. 

    4. Stars of David
    For the perfect Hanukkah manicure, choose a shimmering deep blue color for the base of your nails. Then use silver polish and a small brush to carefully draw Stars of David on your nails, either on all of them or just on the thumbs or ring fingers for a cute accent. As an optional step, use the silver to color the tips of your nails as well – use tape to create a perfect line!

    5. Glittering New Years nails
    New Year's Eve is all about bold and glittering styles, so the perfect New Year's manicure should match that style. Use glossy black as your base color, then apply silver or gold nail glitter, starting at the tip of your nails, and fading down, stopping midway down each nail.


  • Keep your feet smooth and healthy this winter with these tips. Winter care: Tips for keeping your feet healthy

    The dry winter air can be damaging to skin all over the body – and that includes the feet. Not only are feet vulnerable to dry and cold weather, but they're also constantly wrapped in socks and tight winter shoes, which can cause even more foot issues. Take a look at these ways to keep your feet moisturized and healthy this winter:

    Wear appropriate footwear
    It should go without saying, but it's important to wear winter boots and other closed-toe shoes over the colder months to keep feet warm and healthy. However, keeping feet in tight boots for hours can actually cause damage like calluses, blisters and painful chafing on the skin in the area. To help alleviate these symptoms, make sure to wear boots and shoes that fit exactly right, and aren't too tight or too loose. Cotton socks are the best choice in winter because they allow the skin to breathe and keep natural moisture contained more than other synthetic fabrics do, but you can also wear wool socks to keep feet warm.  

    Exercise your feet
    Blood doesn't circulate as easily into your hands and feet, since they're the furthest from your heart. In cold weather, they get even less circulation, which can leave them without some nutrients and very cold. To get the blood moving in your feet, perform exercises daily like ankle rolls and toe point and flex movements. This will help get the blood pumping into the area, and help the feet and skin stay healthy.

    Soak
    If you experience a lot of calluses or thick patches of dry skin, you may want to start soaking your feet to help get rid of them. Dry patches leave the skin unable to pick up any topical nutrients you apply. The dry, dead skin is a lot easier to slough off after a soak using a gentle exfoliant or a pumice stone. Since hot water can add to your skin's dryness, make sure the water is warm or lukewarm. Adding a 1/2 cup of Epsom salts can ease your sore or aching feet. A few drops of essential oils can also help alleviate some of the dryness and keep your feet moisturized after the soak. 

    Moisturize
    Pick up a moisturizer that's specifically designed to heal the skin on feet for best results. Make sure you're moisturizing right after a soak or shower while your skin is still damp, which allows the product to penetrate deeper, leaving the skin moisturized and healthier. 

    Wrap them overnight
    If soaks aren't healing your dry skin or cracked heels completely, you may want to consider moisturizing your feet overnight. Exfoliate, then use moisturizer or petroleum jelly and immediately throw on a pair of socks. The socks will help contain the treatment and your feet's natural oils, healing the skin overnight.

    Keep nails groomed
    Even though fewer people are going to be seeing your nails over the winter, proper nail care is important for preventing ingrown toenails and keeping the nails and feet healthy. Continue to get pedicures, clip nails regularly at home and keep cuticles pushed back.

  • Keep these items in your gym bag to prepare you for the rest of your day. 10 items men should keep in their gym bag

    If you're thinking about enrolling in barbering school, you may want to get into the habit of working out in the morning to get ready for the busy day ahead. If you do exercise in the a.m., though, you'll want to make sure you have the perfect gym bag full of items that can help you get through your workout then prepare for the rest of the day. Check out this list of 10 gym bag essentials you won't want to hit the gym without:

    1. Water bottle
    Probably the most important part of staying healthy and energized during and after your workout is keeping hydrated. Make sure you have a clean bottle with you before leaving the house, and drink plenty of water throughout your workout and for the rest of the day.

    2. Extra socks
    Keeping an extra pair of socks in your gym bag is a good idea for those mornings when you run out of the house and leave a couple items behind. You don't want to wear the socks you'll be in for the rest of the day at the gym, so it'll be nice to have an extra pair handy!

    3. Towel
    Keep a towel on hand during your workout to wipe sweat off of your face between workouts. Another good idea is antibacterial wipes to clean machines with after you're done with them. 

    4. Athletic tape
    Athletic tape has many uses beyond wrapping up injured or sore joints. You can also use it to protect your hands while lifting weights and for bandaging cuts and scrapes. Keeping a roll in your gym bag will ensure you're prepared for small injuries that could happen during your workout.

    5. 2-in-1 shampoo and body wash
    Even if you use several different products during your typical showers, you may not want to lug them all to the gym every day. Keep your after-gym care simple with a combined hair and body wash so you have just one shower product to carry around.

    6. Astringent wipes
    Bringing an actual face wash is a great idea to use after a sweaty workout, but you should also consider bringing a small pack of astringent wipes. Any sweat or oils left on your face after exercising can easily clog your pores and cause acne.

    7. Hair-styling cream
    With a long day ahead of you, you'll want to make sure you have a product to quickly fix your hair after your shower and keep it in place the rest of the day. Bring along a tin of styling mousse to give your hair the shape you like. 

    8. Pain reliever medication
    Sore muscles and injured joints can make the rest of your day a little more difficult, so keep a bottle of pain relievers on hand just in case you need them. 

    9. Laundry bag
    You'll need someplace to keep dirty clothes so that you and the rest of your gym bag contents don't smell for the remainder of the day. You can find odor absorbing bags for this purpose, or find any bag that seals and toss in a dryer sheet!

    10. Deodorant
    This product should stay in your bag no matter what! Deodorant is going to keep you smelling fresh for the rest of the day after a hard workout.
