Continuing to prove that nail art doesn’t need to be difficult, I asked Nidia from Lit From Within to recreate a nail look with a tutorial. For this nail art how to, Nidia took inspiration from A Nail Addict Named Sonia @badgirlnails.

My addiction of a good scrub goes beyond just body and facial scrubs. I adore lip scrubs and Treat Beauty’s newest organic sugar scrub is one you’ll want immediately.

This lip scrub is also pretty big! It’s jumbo in size and not your typical small lip tube. Read more
