Landlocked But Still Want Surf Kissed Tresses?

At least let your hair feel like it's hit the beach.Summer heat and humidity can be rough, especially in landlocked Central Europe. Places in the US Midwest without air conditioning are unheard of, whereas A/C for whatever reason doesn’t seem to translate to Slovakian, leaving fashion worker bees to roast.

Put away that 1%er envy, as always PD’s got you covered with our Beach in a Bottle.

General Taco Wants Your SPF High

SPF 85, people!Another article about the New Black Panther Party? You’d think PD was a 13 year old with a crush! No, no, our PD contributors are well out of puberty, but let’s face it, the New Black Panthers with their glitzy get-ups, wise monikers, and raucous moves to take over the fashion world are just too much fun not to write about!

Today’s NBPP piece is on General Taco (not to be confused with Vice Admiral Gordita or Grand Marshal Quesadilla). General Taco, which stands for Take All Capitalists Out (wow, why can’t PD come up with something that clever?) wants to be sure that all whites wear an SPF no smaller than 85 this summer, otherwise those honkies run the risk of becoming pink. Taco ain’t a fan of no pinkies.

SCOTUS Got You Down?

Doesn't Roberts look exactly like Victor Garber?It’s been proved by the scientists at Estée Lauder that after a devastating breakup or the hearing of colossally bad news, such as the loss of a job, family member, or the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on Obama Care, women experience a strong compulsion to drastically change up their appearance. This behavior has been shown to signify a process of going from intense grief and abject suffering, to a place of psychological rebirth and strength. Similar studies conducted at the University of Cosmo also support this thesis.

While old media pundits pat themselves on the back and try to spin the newly dubbed, “Robert’s Debacle,” PD is more interested in helping you get to that psychological rebirth place.

The tip dyeing, sometimes referred to as the less eloquent dip dyeing, hair trend has been getting major play since the beginning of this year. Tip dyeing is the kid sister to the Lite-Brite color highlights pushed by the major players of VH1’s Tool Academy, back in 2010.

Tip dyeing is basically the act or art of dyeing the tips of normally colored hair, with bright hues of orange, pink, purple, blue; really any automatic color. Getting this done professionally can set a girl back $50+, and can also end up lasting two long months. Those are two major negatives, as this look is one partaken usually in times of insanity, and acute stress and sadness, which is what us here at PD are going for now. Consequently, tip dyeing isn’t really something you want to wake up to day after day for two months. Two weeks on the other hand, we can all stomach, including our employers.Oh yeaaaaah!

Thus PD presents, “Tip Dyeing with Kool Aid."

Is First On the Market Always the Worst?

Designs are a bit garish, but are currently improving.Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects Nail Strips were the smash nail hit of 2011, causing other brands to play catch up and to come up with their own nail stickers. Vivi’s done it. Opi’s done it. Hell, ebay caters to hundreds of different Asian sellers that do it, and do it far cheaper by the way. Everybody’s done it, but how exactly does the original stack up? Has their first attempt managed to keep up?

The Sad Truth: Paying More for Something Don’t Mean It Will Have Better Quality

Pretty in the purse, less so on your lashes.There is this widely accepted maxim that if one pays more money for x than surely that x must be of better quality than the similar, although less expensive, y.

Unfortunately that math just doesn’t check out, no matter how much I you want to believe its validity.

Case in point: YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils.

Keeping It Classic

Red nails, a classic staple.So, you say Marijuana decals aren’t your mani style. We here at PD understand completely. Truth be told all of our contributors were surveyed and none have actually gone for the whole Nacro-Patron-Saint-thing; of course, no one on our staff plans to party in Cabo with the Zeta’s either (your political fashion choices are sometimes based on necessity).

While summer cobalts and neon pinks don’t suit everyone, a red manicure is a go-to staple that fits every skin type, hair color, personality, and time of year. Blood red in fall, cheery Santa in December, Valentine crush in February, Candy-Apple in Spring, and Hot Hot Hot in summer, red nails always come across as current and yet classic.
