Love Gel Manicures? Your Natural Nails Don’t.

Love Gel Manicures? Your Natural Nails Don't.Brace yourself, manicure lovers, because new research from the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) says the trendy gel manicure could be hazardous to your health.

An Actor’s Physical Type

An Actor's Physical TypeAn actor’s “type” is essentially a combination of their personality and external physical appearance. It’s what would be considered their character type or persona based almost entirely on first impressions.
