MORE "Beauty Shop Boo Boos"












"Your dove eyes are veiled by your hair as it flows and shimmers, like a flock of goats in the distance streaming down a hillside in the sunshine."
Song of Solomon 4:1 ~ The Message

Like I said earlier, I wish I could say the "hot wax" incident was my last beauty shop boo boo. But there was that one time when I was doing my own highlights, didn’t set a timer and got distracted. This accident, if you really want to call it that, led me to a talent I like to refer to as “art”. I was able to artfully separate the pale blonde strands with just enough dark strands to get a really attractive effect…kind of like a halo! “I look great!” I told myself. Just. Great.

Another time I thought I’d try acrylic nails. But they just weren’t me. So I removed them myself at home. Two words: “ouch” and “ooh.”


Speaking of nails, I’d like to offer you one of my artistry tips." Often I find I need a quick nail polish touch up on my toes. While getting dressed, I slip on my open toed shoes, and proceed to paint only the toenails that show!

Later you can paint that last little piggy. Yeah…I’m pretty much a beauty artiste.


Wanna hear what beauty treatment I gave myself just last week?

Then come back soon!

  5. The nail story did me in. I cannot imagine how painful that was. If truth be known, we probably all have at least one story to share like yours. I like your honesty.

  8. Melanie,
    You are scaring me! I am now afraid to attempt any "at-home" beauty treatments and since money is tight I am truly afraid what I will look like come the 15th! LOL! I better have a quick yardsale for some extra beauty treatment cash!!
