15 Times Your Bada** Nails Were More A** Than Bada**

15 Times Your Bada** Nails Were More A** Than Bada**

Nails so sharp they cut... just about everything

So fine, so sleek, so posh, so... inconvenient? Goodness do i love having my nails all done up, i feel like my best self, but there are definitely a few things i wish didnt come along with my full set. Here are a few things that make your Bada** nails a little less Bada** and a lot more a**.

1. Trying to wash your hair

Anyone who has ever had acrylics knows the cringy feeling of a hair slipping up under your acrylics while scrubbing your mane.

2. Itching literally anything

The problem is they don't ever ~actually~ get the itch. Usually, it is in a panic and you grab the closest item that has any sort of edge

3. Getting something out of your teeth

They can't seem to get into the spaces between your tooth. Sorry, but the spinach is going to have to stay unless someone else wants to get it out.

4. Popping a pimple

I know you're not supposed to pop them, but we all do. and with these honkers on, its far from satisfying, mostly because it's impossible.

5. Buttoning your pants

This takes three times as long with acrylics, don't @ me. I promise I didn't get lost, I just couldn't button my pants.

6. Typing on your phone

*tip tip tip tap tippity tap tap tap* *backspace backspace* "Oh forget it. Hey Siri, call Mom"

7. Opening a can

The feeling of panic when you hear a pop and you're not sure if it was the pop tab or your pointer fingernail.

8. Pressing any buttons

Truly this is just the worst. Your wrist is in a funky spot and you're trying to flatten the entire pad of your finger to press it.

9. Going about daily tasks

I mean just in general having an extension to your body is something you have to adjust to.

10. You are now queen of scratching everyone’s back

Everyone and I mean everyone now wants you to scratch their back or tickle their arm with those magical scratching finger extensions.

11. Picking up change

Honestly just don't even try.

12. Putting in contacts

It's a pretty realistic question to ask your self whether you want to see today or whether you're feeling popping your eye out of socket trying to get your contact in.

13. Trying to get your card out of your wallet

Again, not worth it. You don't need the latte, you'll be fine. No cash? No spending.

14. Putting on a necklace is truly a joke

My sisters are my saving grace on this one, but if we all have acrylics, we're in trouble.

15. Trying to type this article

A listicle that usually would've taken about 30 minutes to type took quite a bit longer. Thank goodness for Grammarly knowing what I was trying to say or else we would've been here till tomorrow.

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semicolon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.

2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."

3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.

4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."

5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."

6. Greek symbol of Inguz: Where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."

8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya).

9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty, and artistic creativity.

10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love, and creativity or to put yourself into whatever you do.

11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from "The Hobbit." It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.

13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength and stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.

16. A glyph means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."

18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe and the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can remind us of the inconsistency of life. It also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

What To Expect For Your First Brazilian Wax

Be informed and do it right the first time!


It's going to hurt like hell, you're going to swear to yourself you're never going to go through with it again, and that you've betrayed your razor. Just like the pain, these feelings will subside.

Before The Appointment.

First things first girl, you must let your hair grow out very long. Ideally, it should be longer than a grain of rice. Absolutely do not shave two to three weeks before since the wax will have a harder time gripping onto short hair, likely leaving it behind. When I hear Brazilian, I think bare. Hairs left behind defies the whole point of a Brazilian, so please just wait.

Next, you should exfoliate the area a day or two before your appointment. Exfoliation will remove the dead skin around the follicle, making hair removal a tad easier.

Right Before.

Now, it's the day of your long-awaited Brazilian appointment. Shower, which is self-explanatory and a nice gesture for your dignity and much appreciated from your esthetician, though do not exfoliate. That will irritate the area before the waxing even begins. It will help to take an anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen. Yes, it will still hurt, but it will help.

During The Wax.

During the session, relax. Your esthetician should guide you in deep breaths and knows techniques to minimize the pain.

Personally, I love going to the salon because it's like a free therapy session. You can vent and talk about anything and they'll likely listen and give you their opinion, or silently judge. They're already seeing every bit of you, so nothing seems off the table, but proceed with caution and just be yourself.

When the wax is over, they will apply a cooling crème, gel, oil, or other product to soothe the stressed skin.

After Care.

After the appointment, it's crucial to be aware that everyone's skin heals at different rates. It's also likely you will develop little white bumps from waxing. To inhibit ingrown hairs from forming, I've found that applying Thayer's witch hazel, or another witch-hazel toner without alcohol helps the healing process immensely. Then, top it with a hydrocortisone cream. It helps with redness and swelling. If you don't have witch hazel, that's perfectly fine. Just proceed with hydrocortisone cream and an ice pack if needed.

I'm aware that these after-care instructions make a Brazilian sound like a terrible self-inflicted experience, but I can assure you'll be going back for more. After the bumps subside, you will love the smooth skin, the ability to hit the pool without the worry of "Did I shave?" In a way, I'd compare the experience to giving birth, but way less painful. Yes, it hurts, but women are strong. They become pros at childbirth, and soon, you'll become a pro at Brazilians.
