If you are prone to biting your nails when you’re nervous/bored like me (I didn’t only lose 2 hours and 13 minutes of my life to Fantastic Beasts, I lost all my nails too) then you will know how appealing the idea of acrylic nails can be.
My short stubby nails will never get their own Instagram post, in fact they are actually an Instagram hindrance. For instance, If I’m trying to take a picture of my new highlighter, I have to hold it in an incredibly awkward fist shape, to avoid anyone knowing the truth of my Jonah Hill hands.
Beauty blogger Amelia Perrin can not relate to my struggles, because she has the kind of enviably long talons that people like me can only dream of…
But Amelia also revealed the painful truth behind an acrylic nail addiction. Taking to Twitter, she posted a picture of her real nails and oh god it’s making me stress bite my own nails.
Admittedly I’m an absolute baby when it comes to things like this but that looks INCREDIBLY PAINFUL.
Maybe I’m not being such a baby after all…

Ticks: Everything you should know
We get it: No one wants to think about ticks. They’re creepy, gross-looking, and spread diseases. Well, that’s exactly why you shouldstart paying attention to them.
In the United States, ticks are responsible for spreading potentially-life threatening infectious diseases, some of which can trigger not just chills, nausea, and a fever, but also neurological problems and even death. The most infamous of these infections is Lyme disease—according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it’s the most commonly reported vector-borne illness in the United States. (A “vector” is any living thing that can transfer diseases.) And while the rates have steadily increased since the 1990s, thousands of Lyme disease cases may go unreported.
So when it comes to ticks, ignorance is the opposite of bliss. Start reading up on what ticks look like, where they camp out, and what to do if one latches onto you. Developing an action plan now can potentially save you from a lot of suffering in the future.
Ticks are not insects
Surprised? It’s true. Ticks are actually arachnids, which means they’re more closely related to spiders than they are to flies or mosquitos. Ticks even look a lot like spiders: They have four pairs of legs, no antennae, and—importantly—don’t fly or jump, either. Instead, when ticks are ready to feed, they usually camp out on blades of grass or other foliage, where they wait for a human or animal to come to them. It’s a strategy called “questing”: By using their third and fourth pairs of legs for stability, they stretch out their first set of legs and latch onto the unsuspecting host; from there, some ticks might crawl around until they find a thin area of skin near a small blood vessel, where it’s easier to extract blood.
Only a few types of ticks spread diseases in the U.S.
