It's true. Twisted is pretty for SS13. It's casual, it's easy and it's totally fuss-free. A deep, side part is a must, but size doesn't matter! I love the functional but stylish headbands too, a must-have spring accessory! I'm definitely inspired to get a little twisted this spring;)

1. Using Your Nails as Tools
They are not tools. We often over-extend our nails, thinking they can open any can, peel off any sticker, unscrew any screw, etc. This causes stress on the nails that can lead to splitting, tearing or peeling of the nail layers and, of course, your nail colour.
2. Over-Soaking Them
3. Putting them in Your Mouth!
When you put your nails in your mouth, you cause breakage and tearing. It also ruins your teeth and exposes your nails to the water in your saliva, which dries them out and causes lifting and chipping. Plus, it’s really gross:
CND expert Candice Manacchio told Self: “Germs and bacteria hide under nails, so biting them can spread these nasties to your mouth and possibly lead to bacterial infections.” Ew.4. Handling Chemicals
Avoid toxic products when cleaning! That is rule number one when it comes to household cleaning and nail longevity. Non-toxic products are obviously less damaging to our nail colours (not to mention our overall health!).
5. Rummaging Carelessly
Can't find your keys? Well, be sure to put them in their proper place if you want your manicure to last! It's so important not to rummage through your bag, searching for items, because you will, without a doubt, damage them. I cannot stress this enough!
Those are my top five nail killers. I've been doing nails for some time, and when a client says 'it just chipped', I have to laugh! But I always wonder...

The 60s are back, from high-rise hairstyles at Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs to heavily-mascaraed lashes at Moschino and Lanvin. So why not incorporate this into your bridal look. I think it's beautiful. I love the look of heavy liner and full lashes offset with pale skin and a lovely nude pout. It makes for a stunning bride.
