Spooky Revenant Nails

by Bionic Beauty on 20.Oct.2017

I’m going as a Revenant this Halloween… and details matter. I wanted a manicure/nail design that matches my character.

There were created with a transparent black polish & tiny dots of dark blood red for a bit of an accent.

Spooky Revenant Nails

Stay spooky, y’all!

When I named Bionic Beauty, I never imagined there would be actual “bionic” makeup!  Women have applied makeup in a similar fashion for hundreds of years using brushes, fingers, sponges, cotton, and natural fibers.  Since 1930 women have had the option of permanent makeup – a tattoo that is applied to your face, eyes, or lips – but the process never grabbed mainstream attention until the 1980s.  The drawback of tattoo makeup is the lack of changeability.

Makeup needs a game-changer!  Turns out, it is here. Now.
Pax Color Change Cosmetic Implants - color changing permanent makeup

Blue Sun Research Group has developed Pax Cosmetic Implants. My best friend and research director at Blue Sun Research Group, Dr. Kate Jones, sent me an overview of their new permanent makeup cosmetic implants.

Pax implants are placed under the facial dermis during a quick, outpatient procedure and allow a woman to alter makeup colors on her cheeks, eyelids, and lips through a wireless interface. Basically you can change your makeup look from smokey eye with a nude lip to old Hollywood glamor in just a few minutes!

Pax, short for G-23 Paxilon Hydrochlorate, uses micro-dermal transduction of bio-luminescent liquid crystals to produce color visible on the skin’s surface. Currently there are 147 doctors in the United States authorized to perform Pax Cosmetic Implants; but the amount of doctors performing the procedure should be widespread by the middle of May.

To top it all off, this summer you’ll be able to change color on-the-go, with the Pax smart phone apps!

Will you be visiting your doctor to get the new Pax Cosmetic Implants?  And how often do you think you’d change your makeup through the day?

And after this leap forward, what’s next in the world of makeup?

Stay bionic y’all,

Throw a Little Hot Rod Red in Your Manicure

by Bionic Beauty on 11.Aug.2014 · 2 comments

Any Iron Man fans out there?

Tony Stark: “Tell you what. Throw a little Hot Rod Red in there.”
JARVIS: “Yes… that should help you keep a low profile.”

Even if you aren’t an Stark Industries or Avengers junkie, you can probably recognize the value in finding the perfect red nail polish.  It’s taken me over a decade, but I finally found my must-have red!

Bionic Beauty wearing Hot Rod Red nail polish by Gelish

On My Nails:

  • Gelish gel polish base coat
  • Gelish polish in Hot Rod Red
  • Gelish top coat

Hot Rod Red is a bright, traditional red creme. No shimmer, glitter, or other sparkly bits. Simple and beautiful. I got all three polishes at Sally Beauty Supply during one of their buy 1, get 1 free sales a few weeks back which makes them super thrifty, and makes my wallet even happier.

On My Hands & Cuticles:
YBF Skincare’s Private Reserve Energy Blend Antioxidant Oil.  Yes, it was made for the face, but it makes an absolutely amazing cuticle oil and hand moisturizer!  Plus you can get a sample size for only 4 bucks or a trial size (I keep this size in my purse!) for $11.75. Woot woot!

What’s your favorite red polish? Who’s your favorite Avengers character? Or… what do you use to keep your cuticles soft n’ happy?

Happy Mani Monday… and watch out for the super genius in a flying metal suit,
