Only thing ever gets waxed here is eyebrows. Too darned scared to death for anything else!! lol  I tried threading on my eyebrows and the reaction was so bad.... never again! lol Even the waxing takes 2 days to clear up. My skin just hates stuff.

I didn't like threading, I thought it hurt more!

hehe I would hope most separate it now ... I am sure I read an article awhile back how it was transmitting diseases around with double dipping.  I went to look now and can't find it, but I am SURE i read something before.

Ew, yeah I can only imagine haha.

The first time I got mine threaded I got a lot of little pimples but now it's not so bad, I only get a few and I don't even do them that often, maybe once every 3 months haha.

thanks! I'll look into it because I love the look of shellac

 

Me too. I can get it to last about 3 weeks so I usually do a couple together but then I pay for it for about 6 months afterwards. My nails are total junk. But the Nailtiques is worth it. My sister got me onto it because she had done the exact same thing with the gel nail manicure. It's a gel protein. You put on 2 coats the first day, then one coat each day for the next 4, then take it all off with non acetone remover and start all over again. At the end of two weeks you will see a big difference. Bugs me that they can't come up with a product that won't destroy your nails because a regular manicure just doesn't last long enough, and to spend the money once a week is a luxury I can't afford. I'm still trying to work out a pattern for manicures/shellac and the Nailtiques. I'm using it now because the general anesthetic and all the drugs have totally destroyed my nails and there is already a difference after only 2 days.

I definitely will be doing the tanning bed before going. I tend to get heat rash if I dont do it before going to mexico. Last thing I need is blotchy rashy skin!

I only wax my eyebrows and upper lip, both areas get really red after but thankfully no breakouts! But the upper lip is pretty painful when they rip the strip off, LOL.

 

I'm thinking of geting a brazilian prior to the wedding, but if my upper lips hurt that bad, I'm not gonna survive it!

I've only waxed my eyebrows, been too chicken to try anything else. I want to try Brazilian before the wedding, but I'm super scared! I've heard horror stories!

I do a brazilian only before going on vacations. True, it isn't exactly a pleasant experience, but if you go to an aesthetician who knows what they are doing it really isn't that bad and it is over quickly. I went to one once where it hurt so bad I almost threw up (I think the wax was not the right temp), so my best advice is to ask someone you know for a referral. Oh and take an ibuprofen before. I think the pain is worth it when I know my bikini line will be exposed every day for a week. Honestly, it isn't the pain that keeps me from doing it regularly - it is just because I don't want to spend the money on it :)

For me it's not the pain, it's more people seeing me lady parts lol

 

What is funny is that I am a nurse in obstetrics/women's health and I see lady parts everyday and I tell these women 'we see them all the time, no need to be uncomfortable' but I am no better hahah!
