How To Thicken and Strengthen Your Eye Lashes

 Are your eye lashes thin and brittle?  Try coating your eyes and lashes with Cetaphil Moisturizing Creme every night.  Give 3-4 weeks for best results, along with a good nights rest.

To prevent lashes from falling out use a good mascara like, Chanel Inimitable, that will not make your lashes stiff and brittle.  If you would like more protection try, Clinque lash building primer before applying mascara.  Avoid rubbing your eyes, it tends to pull and loosen the eye lashes and ultimately fall out.

I personally use Cetaphil moisturizing creme on my whole entire face every night.  Lately, I've been coating my eyes with this stuff, because winter dryness, and noticed a dramatic change not only in my eye lashes thickening, but, growing super fast.  Just be sure you don't get the creme in your eyes.  I made that mistake once.  OOOPS!  It burned a little, but, I just washed them out with water, and I was good as new.  The good news is, the creme is fragrance-free and non-comedogenic, which won't break you out.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
