America, we’re losing. We never win anymore. Look at New Zealand who just invented the chocolate manicure. They’re innovating. We never innovate anymore.

What do we have? Apple Computers? What have they ever done? Apple Watch? How long did that take? Bustle is reporting that a YouTuber named Jessie aka NaileditNZ, out of the blue, went a “wee bit crazy,” and made edible nails. All it took was a tube of squeezable icing and some silver balls.

When was the last time America has done anything this chill? Maybe never. Sure, we’ve been to the moon, but that was, like, forever ago.

And Jessie is so nonchalant about this. After spending a little while on the project, she decides that it isn’t worth it to let them set and decides to eat the nails, which she describes as tasting “good.” It’s like she didn’t even car that much about this massive innovation.

Come on. That is so green, too. So Jessie is making nails that are fashionable, edible, and reduces our carbon footprint.

What’s America doing? Losing. Shame.

The latest social media "beauty trend" in China is making sure your knees are able to be covered by your iPhone 6.  Apparently this proves that you're "skinny" enough? 



It's pretty common on Chinese social media for "proof of beauty" memes to cycle around. Others have included putting coins in your collarbone, holding a pen under your breast and more recently, making sure your waist is completely hidden behind an A4 sized piece of paper.  These are a lot of standards to meet for one person... now apparently your kneecaps need to be small too?

Trend of The Day: People Are Faking Their Freckles For Beauty

The grass is always greener on the other side—the freckle side that is.

A new company called Freck Yourself has launched a Kickstarter in hopes of funding their product, which promises to add natural-looking freckles to your body that last for two days.

If funded, the pack of 72 self-adhesive stencils would be available as early as February 2016.

The product promises to create natural freckles, which can't be achieved through traditional makeup.

There have always been two problems with creating artificial freckles. First, it's really hard to create a realistic pattern. Natural freckles have a random pattern & sizing variation, but freckles applied with a pencil are all the same shape of the pencil tip. Second, pencil or makeup freckles smudge really easily. Our product solves both of these problems.

So, will you get frecked?

She wants you to use WHAT on your face?!

Beauty blogger and man juice aficionado Tracy Kiss has a pretty controversial beauty secret—skeet.

In a video uploaded to her YouTube page earlier this week, the beauty blogger uses semen harvested from friends and rubs it on her face. She says she is not involved in the "extraction" of the materials.

Although, she notes, that when she is married she will perform this regimen every morning. (Hey, fellas!)

Here's what she says about the facial on her blog:

As the beauty consumer, it is our own personal preference to ensure that products we use are acquired from an organic and sustainable source, manufactured in a safe and non-hazardous way and not tested on animals if this concerns you as it does me. Unfortunately for my semen facials a human organic c*ck is badly beaten on a regular basis in order to produce a mask, which some people may find disturbing; however I am reliably informed that the level of distress was kept to a minimum at all times, as obviously battery c*cks cannot provide the produce required or I would have been well stocked for life. I would also like to stress that I am not present during the donation process, as I simply receive it in a plastic container fresh from a sensible friend who delivers it to me after in his own time.

Oh what a world we live in.
