DIY Shellac

Shellac Supplies

These are the supplies you will need. We got pure acetone to take off any nail polish we had on our nails before. Your nails have to be completely clean.

Front Braid

Hey there! I did a really easy, quick hairstyle today and thought I would share with you!

This is one of my go-to hairstyles because it is so simple to do. It’s a nice option for those of you with short hair, because we don’t have too many options. My front braid is done a little bit differently than most people. I’ll do a tutorial later. But one tip I have for you, especially for those of you with thin hair… Once you are done with the braid and have bobby pinned it in place, pull at the edge of the rounded part of each weave to make the braid appear thicker! One of my favorites for when I had long hair was the Upside Down Braid and I share my top 5 braided hairstyles here.
