Who writes Beautiful Basics?

 My name is Kassie and I’m a chronically ill 28-year-old from a small town in Oregon. I have a passion for all things beauty and green living. I write about natural and organic beauty products as well as DIY beauty recipes and other odds and ends. I'm also an animal lover and believe beauty should be cruelty free. I'm a proud cat mommy and vegetarian.

I’m not an expert or a professional but I have learned a lot about beauty and skin care by experimenting and teaching myself. I like to keep my posts as positive as possible. I love testing out products but I only write about the ones I love. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy!

I also have a blog that chronicles my life living with chronic illness.

Vinegar+nails=magnificent manicure/perfect pedicure

Love the look of painted finger nails, but hate when they chip so quickly? Here's a simple trick to help your nail polish look better longer – just dip your clean, naked fingernails (or rub a saturated cotton pad on toes) into vinegar. You can use either white vinegar or apple cider vinegar, whichever you have in your pantry. The vinegar removes oils from the surface of your nails, which means that your polish will stick to your fingernail.

This will help your manicure last much longer!
