NAIL TIPS WITH VANILA DAMA #SHIMII


One of the particular female qualities is beautiful nails man, I mean... your hand shake should be soft and beautiful.
However not everyone is blessed with long and beautiful nails hence more effort in keeping them is needed. A lot of accidents happen.. Our particular favorite worse accident is when you are putting on your tight jeans and just have to pull them up.. 
That, followed with making the bed and doing your laundry...

I don't think i have seen anyone love their nails as much as Vanila does..so for the love and sake of the Falibe Clan, we will hit her up and give her the floor..

SHIMII: I personally think I am blessed with long and strong nails... my nails are naturally long but truth be told it is too much work... I break one nail and I have to cut off the rest.. so I decided to leave them for display and start consulting more nail tips....

NAIL KEEPING  ADVICE FROM SHIMII.


Having nail tips (kucha za kubandika) doesn't make it any less stressful, the pressure is still the same and the care is still the same I can say the best part about it is not having to worry about cutting all of them off when one breaks but its all the same.

FALIBE: How do you manage to do your day to day activities with them so long..?

SHIMII: Honestly, i'm at that point that I can't do anything without my nails... i even type faster with them and I do my all day everyday chores and activities just as fine... You get used to it I mean, If you really want it, you'll find a way to make it work.

TIPS 101.

1. DO NOT USE FAKE NAIL POLISH.
I best advice the use of gel nail polish like 'LAVI' products it's all gel nail polish, these products use LED light to dry up and cannot just come off with a normal remover. They have a whole process which at the end helps strengthen your nails. But if you cannot afford tthem you could always opt for the normal nail polish that ususlly needs natural air and the sun to dry up. The only problem with that is that tthere are many fakes especially if you are doing them in the streets so always go with your gut or you can visit naik polish shops and stores like Sheer illusion. I cannot exactly state how you can tell if it's fake by words but you can always tell so read the signs.

2. HEAT APPLIANCE IS A BIG NOOOO!!!
Ok, I don't know which witch of the far East end came up with that theory about candle wax and fire... it destroys and corrupts your nails and how can you survive the heat? I wouldn't advice that ,if its nail strength you need I advice you use Led light or....

3. USE HENNA
Believe it or not...THIS WORKS!! I applied henna on my nails as they were growing and I can see the difference,  my nails are more stronger and healthy now. So do that, apply the henna gel as normal nail polish IT WILL HELP, TRUST ME!!!

4. PROTECT YOUR NATURAL NAIL
Sometimes you can put on nail tips and they come off and it leaves a terrible layer on your nails that you have to start wondering what happened?  It has happened to me before...we had to use a lot of nailpolish to get rid of that hidious layer, I won't  be making that mistake ever again. So i switched to 'kucha za unga' I don't really know what they are called in english, but I say they are better because the powder somewhat protects your natural nail and even better, they actually look like your own nails . The question about the price, yes they are more expensive but worth it.

5. SACRIFICE SACRIFICE SACRIFICE 
I personally do my nails at least once a week or if they are in a good condition once every two weeks.The tips can stay strong depending on how good it's glued but I change colors more. So you need to sacrifice your time and money, put out a budget trust me it's worth it!!

Boxed nail design 

My favorite nail shapes are 'boxed' and 'mdomo wa kuku'
And NO I don't have a specific salon I go to rather, I have a trusted person that i call over to come do my nails. This saves so much of my time.
