Grounding during Covid-19

A few weeks back I wrote how I felt about Quarantine on Facebook. As I have reopened my blog site, I decided to share it here as I wanted to document this crazy time period of life to look back on.

This social distancing, quarantine life sucks for most of us and worse for those who cannot control their environment/living situation. However, through this experience I do believe that life really comes full circle. A sign that earth has had enough of people, it’s had enough of people neglecting each other, for lack of regard to our ecosystem, it’s had enough of people starting wars with each other. Now with this virus, streets are empty with no humans in sight. I’ve seen pictures across the world of animals roaming streets, no pollution because less cars on the roads…my point is let’s all turn this horrible situation into something we can overcome together practicing social distancing and good hygiene, and enjoy the simple things in life.

Let the world heal and let’s heal ourselves too. Love you and take care! Check up on your friends and family with a simple call or FaceTime! we will be alright!

At-Home Nail Salon (Quarantine)Starter Pack

Hey guys,

I’m sure by now, we are finding every which way to get pretty nails during Quarantine. Some of us want cute nails regardless of the times okay. I have always loved doing my own nails, but during quarantine I want to make it my goal to hone skills in nail design. I ordered nail gel builder and some tools guys and I’m excited to share them with you and my thoughts on them once they arrive next week! 


However, I wanted to do a starter kit for those of you who want to try doing their own shellac manicures at home and/or have never tried it. All brought to you by Amazon, not sponsored. Three essential things you will need:

1) UV/led Lamp.

This works fine, but some of the gel polishes (aka China Glaze) don’t dry fully with this. I ordered another lamp from Amazon, which I will make a review for once I receive it. 

2)E-Filer.

This one works well. I bought this off Amazon. I’m missing a few of the pieces, but works great as part of your starter kit. It is great for prepping the nails and buffs nail tips if you add artificial tips/polygel/or nail builders as well as for easy removal.

3) Topcoat/Base Coat.

I really love the Aimeili line. Drys in 60 seconds, no cleanser wipes needed which means no sticky gel residue. For starter kits, they are pretty affordable brand you can find on Amazon for I believe $12.99. All my products for this starter pack are from Amazon.

Let me know if you guys have done shellac nails at home or are interested in trying it out. If you have any suggestions on brands to try for UV lamps and gel polishes.
