This helps darker nail polish colors from staining the nail bed. Applying a clear nail polish before colored polish, also helps polish to adhere better to your nail and gives it more of a staying power, helping prevent nail polish chips and peeling. It is also good to get in the habit of applying a clear nail polish as a top coat, to help seal your nail color and give it the ultimate staying power. Clear nail polish can also be used to stop runs or holes in nylons, pantyhose and tights from getting any bigger or worse, and if you have any nicks or chips in any of your wood furniture pieces, brush in a little clear nail polish to coat the nick or chip to prevent it from getting worse. Cotton balls are the ultimate, multipurpose product! They can be used to apply facial toner or astringent, and they can be used with makeup removers for the face and the eyes. Did you accidentally put on too much blush or eyeshadow? Take a cotton ball and sweep it across your skin and remove an excess makeup. If you have an earache, stick a piece of a cotton ball in your ear to help alleviate the pain.

Top ten grossest celebrity beauty products
That made us curious about other beauty boxes out there which put expensive cosmetic products and gadgets in your hands each month for just a few bucks. I love getting these samples in the mail, said Marchese. This way, I dont have to pay top dollar for products which I dont really know in the end if theyre going to work out for me or my skin. She receives a beauty box once a month for $10 and says it has saved her a lot of money. What I love is the samples arent just samples. Sometimes they come in full size, said Marchese. WHNT NEWS 19 dug deeper to find other options of beauty boxes. We found a long list of them including Birchbox, Julep Maven, Eco-emi, New Beauty Test Tube and Beauty Army. They all have different prices and delivery times. Some boast they send out rare labels of high-quality make-up. Others promise all eco-friendly products. And some send samples for just for nail care. In each one, consumers fill out a questionaire and profile, telling the company what theyd like to test out. Most companies dont announce specifically whats coming in the package, so its like a monthly grab-bag. Its like a present every month that I can look forward to sampling all the products and using them.. kinda like the highlight of my month, said Marchese. Guys, dont feel left out. Many of these companies offer beauty boxes for men too. The pricing is different though.

National beauty products retailer opens 1st Michigan location in Ann Arbor
The alcohol is supposed to remove the build up of oil and products, but I wouldnt want my head smelling like Miller Lite. Image: Wikimedia Commons 7) Sienna Miller and ketchup In another odd hair ritual, Sienna Miller uses ketchup in her hair. Miller accidentally dyed her blonde hair too dark, and she found that the only thing that would remove the unwanted color was squirting ketchup on her head. Gross. Image: Wikimedia Commons 6) Snooki and cat litter Former Jersey Shore star, Snooki, exfoliates her skin with cat litter. Kitty litter is made out of clay like a lot of face masks, but according to experts, you should stick to the real deal. Besides simply being nasty, the litter will dehydrate your skin and potentially cause micro scratches, which can lead to inflammation and blotchiness, says esthetician Lezandra Berchik. Image: Wikimedia Commons 5) Debra Messing and snake venom Debra Messing puts a cream made of snake venom around her eyes. Apparently, it helps to reduce her wrinkles; however there just may be some potential side effects to rubbing poison into your skin.
