Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve wanted to go to beauty school. My first experience cutting hair, aside from my Barbies’ heads, was on my little sister Megan. Her hair was getting a little long, I thought she could use a bang trim. The problem was, I was seven years old, and she was four. I used kitchen shears, and then proceeded to let her cut my hair afterward.
Dashing Diva’s French Wrap Plus system is truly innovative—and I don’t throw around that word very often. Essentially, it is an appliqué of sorts that is encased in a plastic housing. After the bonding glue is applied, the nail fits right into the plastic and bumps against a little edge so you know it’s in all the way. After it’s secured to the nail, a toenail clipper removes the housing in seconds. Finish with a base and top sealer, and you’re done! The perfect (really, it’s perfect!) smile lines, every single time, for a non-chipping, long-lasting French manicure.

And I, after reading it, felt compelled to share it with you... meet Dakima Hicks.
