Tangle Teezer Review

I don’t know if every girl experiences this, but for some time now I’ve noticed that when you have long hair and wear it down, you sometimes get a fine cloud of short squiggly hairs sticking up at all angles around your head (“whispies” / “halo”) – hairs that have probably been torn and broken from brushing. Personally, I like my hair healthy, smooth and squiggle-free and also there’s the point that the more hairs that break around the top of your head, the thinner your hair will be lower down if you want to grow it long.

I remember when I was little I used to look at pretty nail art with absolute awe. I would wonder how these artistically talented ladies managed to draw such beautifully intricate patterns and designs on their nails and I silently resolved to one day find out how they do it so that I could learn how to make such gorgeous nail art myself.

Fast-forward years ahead and now I am writing this blog post on one of the secrets of pretty nail art: Nail stamping. (more…)
