Bad Nail Day? : Dealing with Fungal Nail Infections.

Hey Guys, Today we are going to be discussing a problem many women (and men) shy away from and are ashamed to own up to dealing with at one point or the other. We generally take pride in our appearance, and our nails, which are very important in judging a woman’s level of class, style and also, hygiene. So we tend to avoid admitting infections and try to cover up with nail polish or artificial nails which could contribute to the spread of the infection and pose as a bigger problem in the long run. A fungal infection is an inflammatory condition and is estimated to occur in about 1 billion people each year. So, a nail fungal infection is an inflammatory condition of the nails caused by a fungus that can manifest in many ways, beginning with  a white or yellow spot under the tip of the fingernail/toenail, and may spread and cause the nail to  discolor, thicken,develop crumbling edges, and in extreme conditions even separate from the nail bed (and fall off!!!  This …

The first time I noticed this major trend was on the beautiful actress Lily Collins. I fell in love instantly, and being the eager bunny that I am, I went around looking for videos to learn how to get the look.   Alot of people have been inspired to re-create these brows as all the big celebrities seem to be embracing them along with the extreme Highlight and Contour look as seen on Kim K, Beyonce, Rhianna, Miley Cyrus …
