Beauty How-To: Repair a Split Nail

Forget about cuticles, chipped polish, or buffing- if you’ve got a jagged edged nail or one split down the center, someone’s going to notice. Don’t worry about chopping your claws off or growing out a painful crack because mending a torn digit is easier than breaking it.

The latest nail polish trend may be here to stay, especially after it tints your nails some not-so-natural color. Using colored polish too frequently, along with other discoloring factors like smoking, can add a yellow stain to finger tips.

New Lippies Protect Your Pucker

Since we hear your lips are the secret to youth and all, it would only make sense that you’d do everything in your power to protect them, right? Lancôme just launched a new line of lip gloss with anti-aging ingredients, called the Lancôme L’Absolu Crème De Brilliance, which seems to be just the way to save yourself from a prematurely elderly-looking pucker. The collection includes eight different colors, all of which are made with Pro-Xylane, Lancôme’s anti-aging molecule. The glosses retail for $29, but if that’s youth in a bottle, maybe it’s worth it?

Snakes On A Face: Snake Serum For Anti-Aging?

Not to reinforce stereotypes, but this one is fairly common—a lot of women are scared s**tless of snakes. (Well, except maybe for Britney, but there’s something a bit crazy going on upstairs there in the first place.) Despite this phenomenon, the one way females might feel totally OK about snakes is if their powerful juices were packaged in a pretty, expensive ampoule, and somehow presented as miracle products. That’s what Rodical’s new Glamoxy Snake Serum aims to do. Valued at almost $200 per bottle, the formula claims to be “Botox in a bottle,” and actually doesn’t contain any real snake spit but rather “Syn-Ake, a neuropeptide that copies the effect the South-East Asian Temple Viper’s venom has on its victims.” What does this stuff do? It freezes your muscles for several hours after application, similar to a perma-grin post-Botox. (Lovely.)

Breform Means You Never Have To Wear A Bra Again?

Perhaps you’ve heard of the boob lift, a surgical procedure that hoists up your sagging breasts. Now there’s the internal bra, which also does this, but goes one step further by putting a reinforcing structure in place, so that you don’t actually have to wear a bra. Ever. The product used is called Breform—a firm mesh cup that’s implanted under a layer of breast skin, effectively providing a support to lift and hold them. While this kind of sounds like a miracle procedure, some of the details are not so pleasant. A plastic surgeon who performs the technique explains, “Over time, the mesh gets incorporated into the breast as the body produces a fibrous tissue that holds the structure in place — like a permanent bra under the skin.”

The procedure is relatively new, but so far, none of the 600 women to participate have had any complications. What do you think? Something you’d be interested in after some more time and research has passed? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

2 More Things Found In Your Makeup Bag That’ll Kill You

We’ve already covered Dr. Oz’s finding on how lip gloss ain’t exactly your friend when it comes to your health (petroleum jelly is a byproduct of oil drilling, and when you spread it on your lips, you end up eating it, which is essentially the same as drinking gasoline, or so he claims), but what he also mentioned yesterday on his show were two more secret killers you probably use everyday as a part of your makeup routine … Keep reading »
