Beauty Tips On A Cheap Budget

Acrylic Nail Kit

Acrylic Nail Kit $7

Getting Your Nails Done

Okay, so you can’t afford to go get your nails done at a salon.  It usually costs anywhere from $20-$30 to get a full white tip set. Then it costs usually between $8-$12 for a fill.  You spend around $70 a month.  If you absolutely want those acrylics but just can’t afford it, there are alternatives.  You can find do-it-yourself kits at stores such as Wal-Mart, Target, Ross, etc.  Most kits come with the glue, gel – powder and liquid, 40 tips, white or clear, a little file, and lift stick.  You will have to buy a clear coat separately, and maybe a separate longer nail file and buffer.  So what is the price difference?
You save about $55, if not more, a month, and that’s not even including what you would tip the salon ladies.
At Wal-Mart a kit costs about $7.  Even if you have to get your own clear coat (about $2-$5), and a filer and buffer (about $2-$3 for both), you’re not paying more than probably $15.  That’s just a little over the price of getting a fill. And now, you have a kit to do your own fill for free.  Not only that, but now for a one time price of $15 you can now do your nails several times.  You may have to buy more of the nail tips, but you’ll still have the supplies.  You may also have to replace the nails more often than if you went to a salon, but it is still cheaper than going and getting a fill after a week or 2, and then getting a new set a week or 2 after that. Remember each kit comes with 40 tips, and if you need more tips but not more supplies, a  box of just the nail tips is still less than the price of a kit. If you go to Ross, you may be lucky enough to find a kit for $2-$3.

 Doing your own nails isn’t even difficult, and even better if you have a friend to do them with, you both can help each other, making things even less difficult.  It always makes for a nice girls’ night too.


Revlon Hair Color $3

Dying Your Hair

You want to do something different with your hair, or you need to recolor it, but you just don’t want to pay to go get it done at a salon, or simply just can not afford it.  Instead of paying anywhere from $50 to over $100 to get your hair done at a salon, you can do it yourself, (or have a friend help you do it), for just $3!
Yes, the ammonia may be bad for your hair if you dye it too much, but if you need to save your money this month, it’s a simple solution.  It won’t hurt to dye your hair from a box this one or two, or even three times.
If your hair is longer it may take 2 boxes.  Even then you are only spending $6.  Now not all brands and stores sell hair dye for this cheap. Wal-Mart, Target, and most other stores, sell Revlon for under $3 a box.  And it is a good dye to use despite how cheap the price is.  Have a friend help you if you are afraid that you’ll miss a spot, but it really is not hard to do. 
The only things you will need besides the box of dye, is a bowl to mix it in (mixing in a bowl and using your glove covered hands instead of the bottle to apply the dye tends to be easier), and a comb to make sure it is being evenly distributed or to get out tangles before you apply the dye to ensure less a chance of  blotches later.

>>Use these tips ladies and you just beautified yourself for about $20!
