7 Press-on nail kits you HAVE to try

PHOTOS

I'll never forget the first time I tried press-on nails. I was probably 12 or 13 and my mom was finally allowing me to get manicures while my friends got to experiment with tips and acrylics. I knew there was no chance in hell my Dominican mami was going to be okay with me sporting long, fake nails with funky designs on them. I'd never hear the end of it about how they'd ruin my actual nails and prevent them from growing. So one day I took a trip to my local pharmacy (behind mami's back of course) and bought myself my first pack of press-on French nails. It was a total nightmare and I looked like a complete loca!

7 Ways to save your thinning hair

I've lost a lot of hair over the past year or so. Let's just say my strands have been through hell and back. To cut a VERY long story short, I basically allowed a stylist to pass a curling wand on my still damp curls and it's been a nightmare since. My curls turned into lifeless, limpy waves from root to ends and for months I was finding matted clumps of hair in my shower drain. Right now my hair is still slowly recovering from all the damage, but I've finally manage to get the thinning to stop.

10 Everyday beauty and style looks inspired by el Dia de los Muertos

PHOTOS

Is it weird that I'm kind of jealous of el Dia de los Muertos' Catrina's makeup skills? For a skeleton, the mujer has style. Well, at least the real life women who imitate her on the Day of the Dead do. I love how they let their imaginations run wild.

It's too bad we can't always do our hair and makeup like La Catrina's every day of the year. Or can we?
