How many nail paints do you own? I know, you might not be able to count. Even I don’t know how “many” I own. Talking about nail paints, I have observed that for a couple of years, nail art has become really creative and necessary. Gone are those days, when we used to carry plain nails.

We have become more active towards the running Nail Art Designs. We want to carry attractive nails to the Parties, Festivals, etc. People are even trying theme based Easy Nail Art Designs like Flower Nail Art, Spring Nail Designs, Summer Nail Art and what not!

Recently I even came across Uttarayan inspired nail art design! Isn’t that really unique? And now, not only Manicure Designs, but Pedicure Designs are also important. The toe nail art has become new favourite of the people. There are numerous Toe Nail Designs that you can try at different occasions and for various themes!

Here are top 20+ Nail Art For Toes that you will love

French Tip Nails Designs– The most basic and stylish one is to be the french tip nails. As this is popular in Manicure Design, it is also popular for Pedicure Designs.  You can even count this as nail Art Design For Short Nails. There is just a thin stripe on the tip of the nail, usually of different color than the base color.

Glitter Nail Art– Glitter has all the love! We can’t imagine our Nail Paint Collection without a Glitter Nail Paint in it! There are some really fantastic glitter nail art designs that you can try very easily at home. You can draw patterns, use powder glitter and many more stuff to play with pedi!

Checkered Nail Art– You might have tried the Checkered Nail Art for your fingernails. Now, it is time to try on Toe Nails. All you need here is patience and attention. Draw it carefully and then fill the boxes neatly or you can use Nail Art Stamp for the same if you are not good at drawing.

Stripes Nail Art– Well, talking about Geometric Patterns, the stripes are simplest. You can keep the base color lighter and draw the vertical/ horizontal stripes with a dark shade. Here, keep the finish glossy, because the stripes look more attractive than in matte finish.

Polka Nail Art– Polka Nail Art is inspired from the Polka Dots on fabric. There are big, colored dots on a plain colored base. Apply a neon colored base, then pick a toothpick, dip it in black nail paint, stamp it on the nails. And, you’re done! You can try some offbeat color combinations here!

Leopard Nails– The running Trend Of Instagarm is Leopard Nails. The Leopard Print is created on nails, using Light Brown, Dark Brown, Black And Golden Nail Paint. You just need to have either the stamp or the fine brushes to draw the Leopard Print. Lastly, apply a Glossy /Matte Top Coat. Your Toe Nail Art is ready!

Stamp Nail Art – Stamping Nail Art has been used for a couple of months in India. There is a stamp, a plate with carved patterns/designs and a scarper. You just need to apply paint on the pattern you want, scrap off the excess paint, put stamp on design, then roll it on the nail. Easy, isn’t it? You can even put more than one design on single nail<3

Acrylic Toe Nails– Acrylic Nails are nothing but what we simply call Fake Nails. The Fake Toe Nails are attached to the surface of our Original Nails and then shaped. The same thing can be done with Toe Nails as well. First, they Buff the Original Nails, so that they become neat and slimmer. Then the Acrylic Toe Nails are glued. Afterwards the Nail Art Design is done on the Fake Nails.

Multicolor Nail Art– As I said, just one Nail Color is so monotonous. So, let’s try something that is filled with different colors. You can paint Stripes or Dots of different colors on one nail or you can draw Patterns, Shapes etc. I personally like painting each nail with different color.

Marble Nail Art– The Marble Nail art has a definite process that must be followed to get perfect results.

Easy Water Marble Nail Art Process:

  • First, take a bowl of water, put the drop of one nail paint.
  • Just in center of first drop, put another color. Repeat this 2-3 times more.
  • Now, with toothpick, draw lines in that colorful circle.
  • Let it dry, then pick that circle up with a pair of tweezers, it will be in sticker form. And paste it on your nails.
  • Cut out extra part and finally apply top coat on the nails<3

Ombre Nail Art– These days, Ombre Nail Art is very popular when it comes to makeup. There are Ombre Nails, Ombre Lips, Ombre Eyeshadow and what not! Just like Finger Nails, you can even attempt Ombre Toe Nails. Take a sponge, put two colors (or three) in sequence, then dab it on the nail. Lastly, apply Matte Top Coat!

Mickey Mouse Nail Art– I personally have tried this one, and believe me, it looks damn cute!! For easiest Mickey Mouse Nail Art, you can draw its ears, tail or the big bow that Mini Mouse used to wear. You can even do a Polka Design with red, white and black to represent the theme. And your Disney Toe Nails are ready!

Spring Toe Nail Design– Here, you need to play with some Light Tones And Flowers. The colors like Turquoise Blue, Fresh Green, Nude, Off White, Yellow, Baby Pink, Orange can be used. The flowers look really amazing in spring nail design  theme.

Festive Nails- I find this really interesting and cute. So many people come up with Creative Festive Nails. Talking about indian festivals, you can try Diwali Nail Art with glitter, or party nails with embellishments.

Nude Nail Art– Nude Nail Paints work great for Finger Nails as well as for the Toe Nails. The Nude Nail Art can be done on Toe Nails by combining it with some glitter, white or black nail color.

Matte Finish Nails– Untill now, we have been trying Matte Nail Art just with manicure. Now, let’s also try it with the Toe Nails this time! If you have Matte Nail Polish, then apply it and apply the Transparent Nail Paint on just the tip to make it Glossy French Tip. Or, you can just keep Simple Matte Nails.

Red Nail Art Designs– Red is Universal Color for makeup. Nothing can go wrong with Red! So, try these cute and quirky Red Nail Art Designs on your Toes to become the talk of the town;)

Indian Nail Art– Talking about Nail Art, I couldn’t skip this one at all! Particularly in Indian Nail Art, we focus more on Curvy Designs and Some Motifs. It can have Red, Golden, Yellow, Black colors. Try this Indian Nail Art on your Toes for a Wedding or any Festival.

Bridal Nails (Toe) – Bridal makeover in India is very Colorful, Shiny and Bright. We don’t include dark or dull colors. Mainly red and golden or silver combination looks perfect for the Bridal Nails. So doing Nail Art with finger nails, don’t forget your Toe Nails this time!

Henna Nail Art– Let’s get extra with Indian Festive Themes by doing Henna Nail Art. Even I didn’t know about such a theme, only recently I came across this. So, as you do normal Henna on your hands, similarly, try those designs on your Toe Nails too with a little hint of colors!

Christmas Toenails– Christmas Nail Art looks really fancy and cheerful. There are already hundred Christmas Nail Art as well as Toe Nail Designs available. The simple rule here is to use Red, Silver, Golden, White, Green and Black colors.

Summer Toe Nail Designs– There are special colors for Summer theme like, White, Light Green, Blue, Pink, and Yellow. By using this set of colors, you can do various Summer Toe Nail Designs. You can do beach theme, balloons theme, ice- cream theme and many more.

Snowman Nail Art– While looking for Christmas Nail Art, I found this Snowman Nail Art which was overloaded with cuteness<3 This one is really Easy Nail Art Design, which you can do even if you are a beginner. Draw  a Snowman by putting two big white dots, and little two dots of black nail paint as eyes. Put some little white dots around as snow.

Sticker Nail Art– Well, this is a superb idea for those who are beginners at Nail Art. There are plenty of Nail Art Stickers present in the market which you can get at very reasonable rates.

Hello lovely people! I hope you all are doing great! Today, I am going to talk about one of the most common issues that ladies face – “How To Prevent Acne Before Period?” Many ladies experience mood swings, irritation, bloating, stress, and skin issues. Things get worse when there are a thousand blemishes, cystic acne, and breakouts on the face! You might ask what cystic acne is. Cystic acne is inflammation caused by the clogged oil pores on the skin, it is very common in teenage years.

Cystic Acne –

Why do we get acne before periods?

Well, this being a natural process, we can’t completely stop it. Still, there are many ways to reduce the occurrence of premenstrual acne or ways to treat period acne.

Tips: how to get rid of period acne naturally?
  • Eat right. Always, because of the cravings, we end up consuming a lot of junk food, oily food and sweet dishes. These all unhealthy refined carbohydrates produce more oil and stickiness on the facial skin. So try avoiding junk food and soft drinks.
  • Focus on the intake of vitamin A and D. The green leafy veggies, fishes, eggs, fruits and fruit juices (homemade).
  • Go crazy on water! The more water you drink, the more impurities would drain out of your body. It will also, keep your skin clear and cool down the inflammation.
  • Keep changing the pillow sheets. The bacteria and dust particles on the pillow directly transfer to our face. So, keep changing the pillow covers to avoid uninvited acne bumps!
  • Do not use too much makeup. The makeup layers go on clogging our skin pores.
  • keep your hands off your face! The more you touch it, the more bacteria get transferred on the face.
  • ALWAYS wear sunscreen before going out in sun.
  • Meditate. Just take out 15 minutes from your entire day, and try to meditate. This will relieve your premenstrual stress. Premenstrual stress is also one of the main reasons for premenstrual acne.

So, these were the natural tips for – “how to get rid of period acne”, and cystic acne during the period. Though it is an inevitable phenomenon, we can at least try reducing its effects.

The period acne treatment is very easy once you understand the changes occurring in your body before the start of periods. A lot of ladies complain about acne before period or pregnancy.

Hair loss can be caused by many issues, but Hair Transplantation surgery is always a helpful solution. This type of procedure transplants hair follicles to balding areas to provide strong, healthy hair. It is not typically viewed as a risky or invasive procedure, but patients still need to exercise some caution while recovering. You can use these tips to make your hair transplant recovery go as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Most Practical Tips for Recovery After Hair Transplantation Have Realistic Expectations

Understanding the typical timeline for hair transplant recovery will make it a little bit easier for you to take care of yourself in the days after the surgery. Small scabs will form within 24 hours, and patients can normally get back to work within two to five days. After about a week, people typically feel that the results look normal enough to go out without a hat or other head covering. Keep in mind that it is perfectly normal for all of the hair in the transplanted areas to fall out within three weeks of your surgery. The hair follicles are still there, and your scalp is just preparing to grow new hairs. Once your new hair starts to grow, it will be about three to six months before uniform coverage is achieved.

Be Gentle With Your Hair

For the first couple of days after your procedure, you should avoid washing or combing your hair. Most patients find that the area is too sensitive to touch anyways, and your scalp will need time to heal. In the first few weeks of recovery, it will be important to be very gentle with your new hair. Avoid shampooing or blow drying the hair for at least a week. It is alright to shower during this time period, but you should avoid any direct water pressure on your new hair transplants. Wait at least a month to do any sort of chemical treatment to your hair, including coloring, perming, or straightening.

Relax and Take Care of Yourself

It might not be an intense surgical procedure, but hair transplants can still put a little strain on your body. Patients may be able to return to work within a few days, but having a longer recovery time can help your body to heal quicker. Many doctors recommend that patients take about a week to just rest and recover. Treat your recovery like a mini vacation and enjoy the chance to just relax around your house. Stock up on plenty of sedentary activities like video games or movies before your surgery, so you do not get bored afterwards. Even if you feel fine, avoid any strenuous activities or exercising for at least seven days because sweating can increase infection risks.

Stay As Healthy As Possible

During the first weeks of recovery, try to eat a healthy diet that is high in fresh produce, lean meats, and whole grains. If you have diabetes, you will need to be especially careful about stabilizing your blood glucose levels because high blood sugar can impair healing and damage your new grafts. Your immune system needs a lot of water to function properly and fight off infections at the graft site, so make sure you are drinking at least 64 ounces a day. Your doctor probably told you to avoid tobacco use in the days leading up to your surgery, and you should continue to follow this advice during recovery. Smoking or other forms of tobacco impair circulation, making it difficult for your body to bring oxygen and other nutrients to your new hair. It is best to avoid alcohol for at least seven days after your surgery. Not only is alcohol dangerous to drink with most pain medications, but it can also reduce healing speed.

Take Suggested Medications

Right after your surgery, you may be prescribed antibiotics. This will reduce the risk of an infection that could make your transplant have complications, so be sure to take the full course of antibiotics. You can manage pain by taking recommended over the counter or prescription medications. Anti-inflammatory painkillers are particularly helpful because they will also reduce swelling. Depending on your situation, your doctor may also prescribe you a hair loss medication like minoxidil or propecia. These can help to boost hair growth and stop the loss of hair in the future.

Listen to Your Doctor’s Advice

Every single hair transplant patient is different, so the most important piece of advice is simply to follow your surgeon’s instructions. Your own case may require different care than the typical suggestions. Take careful notes and follow any post operative care plan that your surgeon gives you. The office will give you an aftercare package with everything you need to take care of your new grafts. Make sure you take the time to go to all of your post operative appointments with your doctor. Carefully following instructions will ensure the best possible outcome for your case.

I have been asked about Salt-a-Peel and microdermabrasion a lot. More and more, people are turning to noninvasive procedures to soften fine lines, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, rough skin texture, enlarged pores, sun damage and scars caused by acne. Two of these techniques are salt-a-peel and microdermabrasion.

Here are the unique aspects of salt-a-peel versus microdermabrasion

Candidates

The candidates for both regular microdermabrasion and salt-a-peel are in good mental and physical health and do not smoke. They understand the procedure and its outcome and have realistic expectations. They also tend to be people who really can’t take time off from work, school or other obligations to recover from more intensive treatments such as chemical peels.

It is important for the patient to let the practitioner know if they have any pre-existing conditions before they choose microdermabrasion or salt-a-peel. Some people have keloid skin, which means their skin tends to develop noticeable scarring. They should also let the practitioner know if they are taking any drugs, whether prescription or not, vitamins or supplements. Sometimes this can affect the outcome of even non-invasive procedures such as microdermabrasion or salt-a-peel.

Microdermabrasion

During microdermabrasion, an aesthetician or a doctor removes the upper layers of the stratum corneum. This is what a person sees when they look at their skin. The stratum corneum is made up of about 20 layers of dead, dry skin cells that are bound together by types of fats and oils. These layers protect the lower layers of the skin but is easily damaged, even by going out into the sun. Eventually, the very top layer of the stratum corneum sloughs off as new skin cells push up from below, but this takes time. Treatments such as microdermabrasion and salt-a-peel gently but firmly move the process along.

In microdermabrasion, the practitioner uses a wand that sprays a stream of fine baking soda or aluminum hydroxide crystals over the treatment area that blasts away the dead skin. The wand also comes with a small vacuum that sucks up both the leftover crystals and the shed skin cells. As the layers of skin are removed, so are the signs of skin damage. The treatment prompts the body to lay down new layers of collagen and elastin proteins beneath the skin and to produce fresh, supple skin cells.

Patients report that microdermabrasion is painless and does not require even topical anesthesia in most cases, though they describe a scratching sensation as the wand passes over the skin. There is no downtime, and the patient can return to their usual activities shorty after the treatment. Microdermabrasion generally lasts less than an hour. The dermatologist applies a moisturizer that eases any swelling and redness that appears after the procedure. The moisturizer both eases any discomfort and provides a layer of protection for the skin.

Most patients who opt for microdermabrasion receive about four treatments. They are scheduled a month apart to allow the skin to recover. The great majority of patients are happy with the youthful, supple look and feel of their skin after microdermabrasion.

Salt-a-Peel

Salt-a-Peel operates on the same principle as regular microdermabrasion. It removes dead skin cells from the top layers of the patient’s stratum corneum. However, instead of using aluminum hydroxide, salt-a-peel uses pure salt to treat the skin. Salt-a-peel can be used not only on the patient’s face but anywhere on their body, including the backs of the hands. The treatments usually last between 30 minutes and an hour, and like microdermabrasion the ideal is for the patient to return for multiple sessions. This results in the most satisfying treatment.

Like microdermabrasion, salt-a-peel is performed in the doctor’s office, and most people don’t need anesthesia. People describe the sensation of salt-a-peel as a tingling that can be almost pleasant.

The skin usually and temporarily turns pink after this treatment. This color can be hidden by makeup, which women can put on right away. There is no recovery time, and the patient can return to school, work or their usual schedule.

Choosing the Right Person for treatments like salt-a-peel or microdermabrasion

Hello lovely people!! Today I am really excited to show you some really creative and Easy Lip Art looks you can create at home! Makeup is something I am really fond of and in that too lipstick! I am voracious about lipsticks ;D. I experiment with lipsticks a lot! Different shades, textures and brands! I don’t hesitate in buying a local lipstick, once I like the colour. And so, I started creating some Lip Art looks, after getting inspiration from Instagram.

So, today, I am going to show you how to make creative easy lip art looks step by step at home!

Note: Do consider the conditions of your lips before applying any lipstick. If you have sensitive lips or any type of skin allergies, then avoid doing any experiments with makeup products. Also, I recommend preparing your lips before any Lipstick Application or doing Lip Art.

How to prepare lips for lipstick or doing Lip Art?
  1. If you feel, you have lots of dead skin cells over your lips, Exfoliate Your Lips with a Good Lip Scrub.
  2. If You don’t have a Lip scrub, You can make your own Lip scrub at Home while mixing Brown Sugar and Honey. Apply the mix and rub it for 30 Seconds.
  3. Wash your Lips after 30 Seconds of Lip Scrub Application
  4. Apply a good Creamy Lip Balm
  5. And You are ready to Apply Lipstick or Doing Lip Art
Now It is Time to Do Some Lip Art at Home
