How to Remove Glue From Artificial Nails

In Earrings on September 14, 2011 at 9:09 am

Some types of artificial nails cannot be used again after they have been removed, so there is no reason to remove the glue. But you can use press-on artificial nails over and over. After removing artificial press-on nails, there is likely to be glue residue on the bottom of the nail. Before you can use those nails again, you must clean the glue to ensure it will adhere to your natural nail.

1. Pour acetone nail-polish remover into a small glass bowl. The greater the acetone level, the better. You can purchase 100 percent acetone over the counter at a pharmacy.

2. Drop the artificial nails in the bowl.

3. Allow your nails to soak in the acetone for 10 to 15 minutes to dissolve the glue. Depending on the acetone level, you may have to soak your nails longer.

4. Use a cotton ball or Q-tip to gently wipe away any remaining residue from the glue.

5. Allow the artificial nails to completely dry before reusing them.


How to Remove False Nail Glue From Your Natural Nails

In Earrings on September 14, 2011 at 9:07 am

If you have trouble growing long, beautiful nails naturally, you might opt to use fake nails. You will eventually need to remove or replace them, and it is important to do this correctly so you will not harm your natural nails. The nails are attached with nail glue, which is formulated to bond the acrylic nails to your natural nails. Once you take the false nails off, the glue will often linger on your nails.

1. Fill a large bowl with warm water.

2. Soak your nails in the warm water until the glue is soft.

3. Wipe the softened glue off with a towel.

4. File down large clumps of glue with a nail file.

5. Remove the remaining nail glue with an acetone nail polish remover and cotton balls.

6. Rinse the acetone solution off the nails with water.

How to Get Nail Glue Off Nails

In Earrings on September 14, 2011 at 9:01 am

False nails can be messy when they are applied at home. It is not always possible to apply or remove them without getting nail glue on your nails or leaving nail glue residue on your nails. The same methods used for removing false nails can also be used for removing excess glue from your nails.

1. Fill a small bowl half full of water and warm it in the microwave for one minute. If it is too hot, let it stand to cool off. You want the water to be as warm as you can comfortably stand it. The warmer the water the better it will be at loosening the nail glue.

2. Soak the nails of one of your hands in the warm water. After several minutes, test the glue by gently pushing at it with the tip of your nail file. Do not force it; you don’t want to damage your natural nails.

3. Fill another small bowl with acetone nail polish remover. Soak the nails of the hand you previously soaked in water in the nail polish remover. After a few minutes, check the glue and see if it is loose. Do not force the glue. If the glue does not come up easily, repeat the process until the glue begins to loosen.

4. Use a nail file or buffer to scrape off remaining glue. It should be slightly gummy and scrape off easily. Do not press hard; it is better to have a few small bits of glue remaining than to damage your nails.

5. Repeat the process on the nails of your other hand. Your nails will be rough at first but this should get better after a few days.

Unique Skull Jewelry (1)

In Accessories, Necklaces, Rings on May 6, 2011 at 9:24 am

Skull jewelry is a weird stuff??? …C’mon!!! Definitely not for me!!!

Jewelry reflects our personality. If you are tough and bold by nature, then skull jewelry is perfect for you. You can make a stand out statement only by wearing unique skull jewelry.

Skull rings are one of the hottest trends in skull jewelry, because it could add attitude by itself to any outfit. Such a skull ring worn was also spotted on famous celebrities, Angelina Jolie and Paris Hilton.

For those of you, who are inspired by high-end fashion, can choose skull crossbones jewelry. Whatever others will say, I always consider it as a symbol of good luck and fortune.

Above is Ed Hardy inspired Love Kills Slowly black crystal skull ring. I bought it a few years ago. Trendy, right?!

My flower skull ring is beautiful also. Black enamel skull decorated with colorful flowers makes it super quirky.

Then you can see my silver crystal skull necklace, got it while I was in China. Still one of my favourite necklaces until today.

I still have a lot of skull jewelries, but doesn’t have time yet to take pictures. Will post it later 🙂

Charming Owl Rings

In Accessories, Rings on May 4, 2011 at 7:41 am

There are many, many more legends concerning the owl. The reality is that owls are very helpful to us as they are excellent at pest control.

In many cultures, owls signal an underworld or serve to represent human spirits after death; in other cultures, owls represent supportive spirit helpers and allow humans to connect with or utilize their supernatural powers. In many cultures owls were symbols of magic.

In England, it was believed that if you cooked an owl’s eggs until they were ash, it could be used as a potion to improve eyesight. In India, if you ate an owl’s eyes you would get the same result.

Anyway, that’s a short introduction about owl. Now let’s take a look at these owl rings I’ve bought yesterday:

Pretty, aren’t they? I gazed a gazely stare when I looked at them, can’t decide which one is the prettiest, and I don’t want to regret. So better to buy all of them 🙂

Yunnan Necklace (2)

In Accessories, Necklaces on April 27, 2011 at 7:31 am

According to the Chinese women who sells this pretty necklace, she’s been using some materials to make it. Such as hard plastic material, animal teeth and bones, also elephant ivory. For the last one, I prefer not since elephant has been included to rare animals. It’s really cruel and barbaric to hurt animal just for your looks.

Mine is made from animal bones. Still fine when I wore it in the first few hours, until I had aching neck in the night. I guessed because this kind of necklace is really heavy. Definitely only recommended for short time wearer.
