Trend: Feather Extensions


Feather extensions. When I first heard about it, I wasn’t SO sure. I could just see my husband lifting up a single feather in my hair and exclaiming in disgust, “There’s a dead bird on your head”.

The Wonderful World of Shellac


Sitting at Carenza, I impatiently look out the window like a sad puppy at the UPS truck in the parking lot. I could hardly wait for the delivery to get inside with our new Shellac nail polishes. I signed away for the packages, tore in to them and BEGGED Nila (our nail technician) to experiment on me. Poor Nila examines my chipped, peeling, stained with hair color hands muttering “I don’t know what I can do with … Continue reading
