Gel Nails for Spring

  
There are two types of gel, hard gel and soft gel.
  
  
“Hard gel gets its name because, once cured, it is tough enough to be made into a nail extension. Nail extensions are artificial nails created by using a nail product to extend the nail past the edge of the natural nail.”

  
“Soft gel refers to the gel products that are too soft to create a nail extension. This includes gel polishes and thicker gels meant for gel-overlay services. Gel polishes are used for the increasingly popular gel polish manicures. These manicures, when done by caring, experienced, and trained professionals, are gentle to the natural nail and the polish stays intact on the nail for at least a couple of weeks with high shine and no cracking, peeling or chipping.”

  
“The product used to create nail extensions using gel or gel nails is gel, not to be confused with acrylic nails, which are created using liquid monomer and polymer powder. All gel services are performed using some form of gel, which usually comes in pots of gel or bottles of gel polish. Gel also comes in a variety of colors. All forms of gel require curing, or hardening, under a UV or LED light.”

  
“UV and LED curing refers to the chemical process that occurs when photo initiators within the gel itself are exposed to the UV or blue light. The chain reaction creates heat while oligomers combine to form long chains during the polymerization process. These long, bonded chains make the gel hard and cause photoinitiators within the gel product to begin the curing process. Usually, once the nail extension and/or gel manicure has been finished, there is a residual tacky layer, referred to as the “inhibition layer,” that is removed by wiping with a preferably lint-free wipe soaked in high concentrate alcohol.”

  
“The process typically ends with an application of cuticle oil on all fingers, to bring back nourishment into the cuticle after harsh alcohol application.”

A pocket guide to mood swings [trigger warning]

the lone lands

For all your mood swing identification needs.

Possible responses to breaking a glass:

  • Manic:  “Fucking fuck, I do not have time for this, I am TRYING to get things DONE if everything would just stop getting in my WAY for half a goddamn minute.  I am too smart and too important to be cleaning up fucking GLASS.”  Kicks the floor, stubs toe.  Stays up all night researching what kinds of glasses are least breakable, while also doing an intense workout, watching TV, listening to the radio, reading articles, being pissed off with the TV and radio and articles, and hatching plans to hop a freight train going West and subsist on itinerant work for a year.  Buys an expensive set of “unbreakable” glasses.  Walks on the glass and doesn’t notice cut feet until they become infected.
  • Hypomanic:  “There is a reason I broke this plate.  I just need to figure…

Slideshow: A Visual Guide to Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Generalized Anxiety Disorder

IMG_4035.JPG
“Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD):
It’s natural to worry during stressful times. But some people feel tense and anxious day after day, even when there is little to worry about. When this lasts for six months or longer, it may be generalized anxiety disorder or GAD. This illness affects nearly seven million Americans. Unfortunately, many people don’t know they have it. So they can miss out on treatments that may lead to a better life.”

IMG_4038.JPG
“Emotional Symptoms:
The main symptom of GAD is a constant and exaggerated sense of tension and anxiety. You may not be able to pinpoint a reason why you feel tense. Or you may worry too much about ordinary matters, such as bills, relationships, or your health. All this worrying can interfere with your sleep and ability to think straight. You may also feel irritable due to poor sleep or the illness itself.”

IMG_4036.JPG
“Physical Symptoms:
Physical problems usually come along with the excess worry. They can include:

Muscle tension or pain
Headaches
Nausea or diarrhea
Trembling or twitching”

IMG_4039.JPG
“Everyday Worries:
Most people spend some time worrying about their troubles, whether money, job demands, or changing relationships. What sets GAD apart is the feeling that you can’t stop worrying. You may find it impossible to relax, even when you’re doing something you enjoy. In severe cases, GAD can interfere with work, relationships, and daily activities.”

A Yogi’s 9 Step Guide Toward Action for Racial Justice in Ferguson

Action For Racial Justice

IMG_3507.JPG
“Calling all aspiring yogis and yoginis, yoga activists and healer types. Have you been watching what is going on in Ferguson?”

IMG_3513.JPG
“Now is the time to put our bodies in mindful action toward ahimsa (non-violence).

Now is the time to use yoga to help heal the samskaras of racism, oppression and injustice in this country. Now is the time to learn, grow, and challenge ourselves for a new pose of solidarity with the people in Ferguson, and with the activists and organizers on the ground in Missouri protecting the basic human rights of residents and protesting police brutality!”

IMG_3509.JPG
“Now is the time to take action because Michael Brown’s life matters, Trayvon Martin’s life matters, Renisha McBride’s life matters… black lives matter.

I know that at times like these, we can be confused about how to take yoga into the street and into the public space for grieving, solidarity and action.

However, I believe that now is the time to live the eight-limbed path set out by Patanjali and be change we want to see in the world.

In light of the uprising in Ferguson, and the violent response from mostly white police toward residents grieving and protesting Michael Brown’s murder, we must take action. When the world is in turmoil, we can become immobilized, scared and confused.”

IMG_3512.JPG
“As healers and yogis the next step is to put our yoga in action.”
