It is best to moisturise or soften cuticles before pushing them back and if they have grown long then pushing them back a little at a time is best.

I think it is best to leave the excess for a while unless it is a nuisance, leaving mother nature to heal the damage a little before going further. Be careful of possible infection in what are effectively self-inflicted wounds.

I advise the use of a soothing antiseptic ointment, preferably one with a mild local anaesthetic. In a few days when the soreness has disappeared you will be able to trim the excess as it becomes accessible - a little at a time.

How do some scorpions glow when light shines on it?

Do scorpions glow? Yes. That's an easy question to answer. It's a bit more difficult to pin down what exactly causes them to glow. In fact, scientists are still working on finding a firm answer to that question.

What scientists do know is that something in the scorpions' exoskeletons cause them to glow. Scorpions, along with other arthropods and insects, have an outer layer called a "cuticle." Unlike the cuticles on your fingers, which are made of hard or dead skin, the cuticle on a scorpion is a part of its exoskeleton. This cuticle has a thin section called the "hyaline layer." The hyaline layer is what reacts to ultraviolet (UV) light, such as black light or moonlight, and causes the scorpion's body to glow.

The hyaline layer is really strong and truly stands up to the tests of time. In fact, scientists have found that even fossilized scorpions glow under UV light. Additionally, when scientists preserve scorpion specimens in liquid-filled jars, the hyaline layer can make the liquid glow! Crazy, right?

While observing scorpions, scientists have noticed that the creatures don't glow immediately after molting. Rather, the cuticles have to harden completely before they shine blue-green in the starlight. But scientists still don't know if the glowing material comes from a chemical reaction in the hardening process, or if the scorpions actually secrete the glowing substance.

How to give yourself a manicure that lasts

There are three possible reasons that your manicure isn't lasting:
1. Your nails were wet/dirty before polish application
2. Your nails are dry and brittle
3. You do not seal the edge of your nail with polish

There are a bunch of different ways to ensure that your manicure will last.
Before you paint your nails, it is imperative to give them a really good wash with soap and water. You want to scrub your nail beds, above and below, in order to remove any dirt that will prevent the polish from sealing over them. After washing your hands you need to dry them thoroughly. I do not mean a quick wipe off with paper towel. You should dry every milometer of your nails with a paper towel and let them dry for at least two minutes before application. A trick that manicurists use is to put a small amount of polish removed on each nail. For some reason, this sucks every last bit of moisture our of the nail.

There are many reasons people get dry or brittle nails. It could be genetics, nutrition or even your hobbies. For example, ballet dancers tend to have very soft, dry brittle nails because of the constant pressure put on their toes. The best way to deal with this is to apply cuticle oil to the entire area of your unpolished nail bed, not just the cuticle, every day for a week. Some of the oil will sink in and nourish your nails. I like to use "Solar Oil" by CND.

Most people make the mistake of not swiping the tip/side of the nails when adding layers of polish. By making sure to include the tip/side in your first and final coats, you are much likely to seal the polish shut. Without doing this, dirt and moisture can easily get between the polish and your nail and cause a chip.

Does it matter if you wash your hair in cold or hot water?

most people use hot water to wash their hair, firstly it feels more comfortable but also it seems to remove the excess shampoo and conditioner better.

But when you have finished washing your hair, try and do your final rinse with ice cold water as this closes and flattens the hair cuticles and adds to the shine.

Nails lifting or falling right off. Not lasting as long as pedicure

I too have experienced the same problem with the OPI and have since spoken with others who say the same. Try the Gelish brand. I have it and it seems to stay on better than the others. The best, however, is Creative Nail Designs, but the price reflects the better quality. In the meantime, however, be sure your nails are good and dry before you start and that your cuticles are trimmed back. Make every effort to keep the gel from getting on your cuticles or the skin on the sides of your nail bed. This seems to cause lifting to begin. Also, put on thin coats of base coat, gel and top coat. I usually use two coats of gel color but both are very thin. Lastly, if you do accidentally get some gel somewhere other than the nail itself, wait until it sets and gently trim it away and then file the edge with a 220 file. This should help with your lifting problem. Good luck!

How do we get rid of the Vero ultra Red mahogany out of hair we have bleached it 4 times its now pink

Stop Putting bleach on it. You are only opening the cuticle and driving the direct dyes further into the cuticle. Use a "stripping" shampoo on barely damp hair and put your client under the dryer for a bit and see if that pulls some of it out. Then you may have to color a little darker than you would like.
