Fingernail art has exploded in several decades. Not only nail art, but also the kind of polish used, from the regular kind to shellac. What kind would you choose? Well, I discovered the solution to your nail wishes, and it’s known as Bio Seaweed Gel!!!

You can use this gel on any kind of nails; acrylic nails, artificial nails and even natural nails. When placed under a LED/UV light, it dries up in less than 2 minutes, saves that waiting to dry time does not crack or chip if used for up to 2 weeks.
Some products of the same type as Bio Seaweed Gel are sns nails, sns dipping powder, dnd nail polish to help you choose the right fit for your nails.

So how is this gel so different from the others currently in the market? In terms of a health gel, Bio Seaweed Gel tops the chart! It doesn’t get dirty, harm or dry out the natural nails, because it is free of dangerous substances that harm and dry out the nails, like most gels. Also, Bio Seaweed Gel can be applied directly to clean, dry nails so you don’t need to file and buff through a rough surface before using. You take it off like any other gel, with a genuine acetone soak in a few minutes.
The items you’ll need to get this done are a UV/LED light, a Bio Seaweed Gel top coat, a Bio Seaweed Gel colour of your choice, a Bio Seaweed Gel base coat and some alcohol to rub the nails.

STEP ONE: Pull your cuticles are pulled back, your hands are clean, and then proceed to wipe your nails with alcohol. As soon as it dries up, you’re ready to begin. Ensuring your nails are oil free will help gels to stay on.
STEP TWO: Apply the Bio Seaweed Gel’s base coat on your nails and place under a UV/LED light for a few seconds.
STEP THREE: Apply your Gel choice of colour and also place under the UV/LED light for a few seconds. Always do 2 coats of a polish to enable the real colour settle in.
STEP FOUR: Use the Bio Seaweed Gel to draw your nail art. Long bristled brushes are most suitable for drawing designs. Wash off the brush with pure acetone after each use to prevent colours from mixing. As soon as you’re done with the design, place the nails under the UV/LED light for a few seconds.
STEP FIVE: Fill in your desired design and place the nails under the UV light again for a few seconds.
FINAL STEP: Finally, apply the Bio Seaweed Gel’s top coat and for the last time, place your nails under the UV light for a few seconds. You’re good to go for the next 3 weeks!!!

Now I know what’s running through your mind. It is easier to wear funky nails if you’re a makeup artist, besides, your job requires you have to be creative in your attire. Don’t let this bother you if you work in a financial institution or do a job that demands a more traditional look. Some individuals look at the styles and trends and think they can’t use it at their place of work. Of course, you can! Just make sure you use colours you’re comfortable with. The rules are, THERE ARE NO RULES. Just like your necklace, your nails are also an accessory.

Is Your Current Nail Polish Suitable For An Interview?

This will be a brief and lovely article, but folks have asked me in my previous write-ups what colours are suitable for interviews so I have decided to share my opinion regarding this.

Just like any other accessory, the colour of your nail polish can enhance your general presentation when you attend an interview. The truth is that everyone can present their theory on how you present yourself in an interview so several opinions can fit. Important things note are the office environment, the industry and most importantly, the company.

Here is what I recommend for a nail polish colour for interviews:

FOR ANY “HANDS-ON” JOB INTERVIEW: I can’t really say exactly what the rules are like for jobs like these but I’m quite sure jobs that require using your hands chef jobs, do. However, there’s a nail polish called dnd nail polish and this should be a lovely option, though I haven’t tried it yet.

FOR THE CREATIVE AND FASHION INDUSTRIES: In such industries, I think the recommendations are much more liberal. It is quite fair play if something is on-trend or trendy. However, because there is enough room for fun does not mean you should wear loud nail polish colours that can distract your interviewers and stray their attention from whatever you’re sharing with them. Chinchilly nail polish is ideal for this category and I wear them during winter and the entire fall.

 

FOR BUSINESS AND CASUAL OFFICE ENVIRONMENTS: Wearing a complete suit for an interview isn’t compulsory, as you also have to be a little versatile when it comes to accessories (nail polish colour inclusive). This is not a reason for you to get crazy either. It’s still a wise concept to go with neutrals and don’t go too shiny or too dark. Good examples of such polish are figi (opaque but light pink) and master plan (a neutral but darker option).

FOR CONSERVATIVE OFFICE ENVIRONMENTS: For workplaces like Banks and Law Firms and other businesses with formal dress codes, you should wear mild pink or neutral polish. Ballet Slippers by Essie was my favourite when I was working at a bank. If you are putting on a suit, you probably shouldn’t wear neon polish. Adore-a-Ball + Sand Tropez are also lovely alternatives for formal business environments because they basically look sheer and light and almost feels like you aren’t putting on nail polish at all.
