Shape It Up: Trendy Nail Shapes You'll Love

Have you ever considered being a hand model? Yeah, neither have we. Over the last couple years, the nail game has definitely made a huge come up. No longer the days where round or square nails are your only two options to choose from at the salon. You can wave goodbye to boring nails and unleash your inner diva with trendy shapes that will have you flashing your nails around for everyone to see.
Give a warm welcome to squoval, almond, coffin, stiletto (ballerina) and lipstick shaped nails. None of these names are associated with anything that has to do with nails -- obviously, but just know that if you go into a salon they'll immediately know exactly what you're asking for. If you're going for a classic look, try out an almond or oval shaped nail. It's not edgy, but it's also not your normal go to. For those edgy ladies who like to stand out, stiletto and coffin nails will definitely give you exactly what you're looking for. Celebs including both Kylie and Rihanna have been spotted numerous times wearing both coffin and stiletto nails. Now if that's not trendy enough, then we don't know what to tell you.
It's always nice to switch things up every now and then, and why not start with your nails? You use your hands on a daily basis, make sure they're worth looking at.

How Hyaluronic Acid Works on Skin
An important step of skincare is hydrating and moisturizing. Since human skin tends to lose moisture with age, it is all the more essential that this moisture is replenished externally, and the skin remains hydrated. One ingredient that hydrates the skin amazingly is Hyaluronic Acid, a must for dry skincare. Hyaluronic acid penetrates the skin and binds water to skin cells, infusing all layers of the skin with valuable, rejuvenating moisture. The Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid on Skin: 1. Extensive and lasting moisturizing and hydration. 2. It is a lipid barrier enhancer: As we grow old, the lipid barrier of the epidermis slows down, making us vulnerable to environmental pollution and damage. Hyaluronic acid increases our skin’s lipid barrier. 3. Hyaluronic acid helps firm the facial contours for a more youthful appearance. It helps reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, and in retaining moisture to the skin, creating a plumping effect. 4. It helps in regeneration of skin cells, giving a younger and healthier complexion Just as a sponge soaks water, Hyaluronic acid absorbs and retains moisture, keeping the skin moisturized. Thus, your skin is assured of continuous effective hydration. It goes without saying that a face moisturizer with this precious ingredient is a must-add item to your skincare regimen. The question now is where do you get this useful nutrient from? Welcome to Kiehl's skincare Relax.

The KPop Diet Issue
The Kpop industry is not only an industry of talent and singing, but an industry that is also hyper focused on the image and "beauty" of the idols that they "produce". Miss A's Suzy, Wonder Girls' Yubin, Wonder Girl's Hyelim, Apink's Eunji, Secret's Hyosung, F(x)'s Luna all underwent drastic weight loss transformations in order to maintain the public image of "beauty". Of course these few artists do not even start to represent the issue that is in the Kpop Industry. Twice's Jihyo was bluntly told by JYP that she had to lose weight and that was her flaw. After debuting she also received a lot of hate for her weight and promptly lost a lot shutting up her haters but also instigating complaints from fans saying that she was beautiful the way she was, which I agree with. Many artists have followed unhealthy diets, literally starving themselves in order to achieve the figure required of them by their company and by the image the kpop industry sets up for them. These examples are not limited to these artists but these are just some examples of people who have done these. Sistar's Soyou ate only one meal a day, IU ate one apple, one sweet potato and one protein shake a day, After School's UEE eats only 1000kcals a day (that's half the recommended daily calorie intake!), 2AM's Changmin ate 2 blocks of tofu and ran for 6 hours everyday, Sistar's Dasom ate only cucumbers for 3 weeks, Park Boram is probably one of the more extreme examples of the chaos the kpop industry produces in the minds of young and growing people. She participated in Super Star K2 at the age of 18 and placed in the top 8! Afterwards, though, she eventually lost 70 pounds in order to debut! While this may have taken place over the course of 4 years that is a ridiculous amount of weight to lose! She released an album last year called "Celepretty" revealing her completely changed figure. But the Kpop industry is changing, a bit too slowly, but it's changing. Korea's first plus-sized model, Vivian Geeyang Kim, shared her thoughts about not fitting the "ideal Korean image" in an interview with Koreaboo's partner OOgeeWoogee. You can read more about it here - The people represented above are only a small proportion of the people who suffer from this issue and mentality. I did not mean to exclude anyone and this is also an issue in many nations, the issue of an image that isn't possible by healthy means. Haters gonna hate but we have to show our support for our artists!!! Share the love!!!!!! KpopINT will keep you updated!
