Who knew that dollar store soap petals could look so lovely? This rose ball is made using individual petals from a box of soap roses. These would look beautiful in a bathroom of a Wedding or other event. Though I am guessing you would need to add a little sign so that people knew to actually pull the rose ball apart. For the full tutorial check here.

Test for Date Rape Drug with Your Nail Polish http://bathnbody.craftgossip.com/test-for-date-rape-drug-with-your-nail-polish/2014/08/28/ http://bathnbody.craftgossip.com/test-for-date-rape-drug-with-your-nail-polish/2014/08/28/#respond Thu, 28 Aug 2014 14:59:00 +0000 http://bathnbody.craftgossip.com/?p=10735 nail-date

nail-date

What do these four guys have to do with Nail polish? They are the creators of a Nail polish that changes color when it comes into contact with date rape drugs such as Rohypnol, Xanax, and GHB. The person (lady or guy) only has to stir the drink with the painted fingernail for it to complete the test.  

Here is what the boys (young men) had to say:

“Through this nail polish and similar technologies, we hope to make potential perpetrators afraid to spike a woman’s drink because there’s now a risk that they can get caught. In effect, we want to shift the fear from the victims to the perpetrators. We are Undercover Colors and we are the first fashion company empowering women to prevent sexual assault.” (Source)

I know you are probably wondering why not just a little test kit? Well is a teenager girl really going to get out a little stick and do a test? Probably not. I know adults who have taken chances when stray men have bought them drinks. If only one of us had this nail polish on we could have tested it right then and there. I know a dear friend who would have benefited in using this product and would have been able to prevent years of heartache after an innocent drink led to a nightmare evening.

18% of women are affected by sexual assault and I am sure we all know someone so why is this product getting controversial coverage from feminists?

Tell me – would you wear it? Would you buy it for your drinking teenager/young adult?

A new tool by Julep promises to make you better at doing your nails than you ever were. And if you always blamed yourself for not being able to create that perfect manicure, then stop doing it. Maybe it wasn’t you after all, but the sucky tools that you have had at your disposal.

The Plié wand by Julep was created after the company found a lot of self-blame amongst women on Twitter to their nail-polish skills. It got them thinking – is it the women, or the tool. And they got a design firm to investigate and work on a new tool. The result was this wand.

The wand rests in the palm of your hand – and is much longer than the typical nail applicators. It brings more accuracy and control and is supposed to give you a better grip.

What do you think? Is a longer handle tool going to make you better? Or is it just a gimmick?
