I'm Molly, a typical sushi, makeup, and fashion loving millennial girl who just so happens to be blind! I was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa at just 4 years old and began public speaking at age 5. I started just doing motivational speaking, but now I make videos and even model! Even though I can’t see, I know that there are bright spots in everything we face. Let’s find them together. 💕

  • "I'm not good at nails." " This is reminding me of everything I'm not good at but want to be good at. " Girl, I FEEL YOU. I love fashion and beauty and all that, and I can visualize outfits and put them together just fine, but then I suck at everything else in that department. Anything with my hands in that area I suck at. I can't put on lip gloss without making a mess, even in a mirror. My hair NEVER looks good, and yeah. I'm just not good at it. 😔

  • Me and my dog get matching nails. My dog enjoys me painting her nails. She just stands and gets peanut butter. Not always do we match but she likes her nails painted. Also for my nail routine I get them professionally done once a month, and I rarely paint them. As we have a million nail polishes

For one I'm super slow so sitting down is just much easier but I also wish I had your shower space. Also are you still getting laser hair removal if you are shaving?

  • Well, you can't be good at *everything* you try. I used to love to pretty up my nails, but I never did like the roughing up of the nails that the salons did to get a stronger bond with the artificial nails. I never tried to use any type of artificial nail until the press-ons came out that only required a little glue, or had the adhesive backing like the ones you used in this video. I don't use them at all anymore; I just want my nails to be trimmed up evenly with a nice shape from an emory board filing. Honestly, you've been succeeding amazingly with all these beauty routines you have been trying on your own; I'm especially impressed with your dye job. Leave the nails for the salon, or just go natural (keep using that Rejuvacote) color. Natural nails do look quite nice.

  • I actually love those Kiss nails, because they're cheap and a lot of them are pretty simple and cute. I usually match the nails to the size of my own nail, instead of matching each other for each finger, because my right hand has slightly bigger nails than my left. If you do it again, there are numbers on the back of the nails at the tips so you can match them that way!

  • From reading the comments, I realize I'm so low maintenance that it's ridiculous. I cut my own hair, color my own hair, do my own nails (when I bother to do them which isn't often and involves filing and painting only), I've never had a mani or a pedicure, never had fake nails, my eyebrows are fairly full and natural so no tweezing, and I've never worn eyelash extensions or false eyelashes...Hmm. I clearly need to try harder in the woman department! I do wear makeup when I go out though, so that's something...right?

  • Just a tip for all the boys and girls that shave....You never want to shave your armpits with the same razor that you use on the rest of your body (especially on your vagina, testicles, etc)! 😬 Your armpits have bacteria that can transfer from the razor to your other body parts and can cause irritations and infections. I use a blue razor on my pits and then another razor in another color for my other body. 👍 Hope this helps!

    iheartigloosiheartigloosVor 7 Monate
    • I've used the same razor for both legs and underarms for over 30 years and never had an issue. I don't shave my vagina because it doesn't have hair, but I shave my bikini line with the same razor too. I never wax off my pubic hair because that can cause open follicles that can get infected. Since you rinse the razor between uses, it should be OK, but I guess you could use different razors for different body parts out of an abundance of caution... I don't think it's that dangerous if you don't though, just based on my experience. I think it's fine to shave legs and underarms with the same razor, and most women who shave probably do it that way. As long as you frequently change your blade so it doesn't get dull, you most likely won't have a problem. Now, if you were going to shave off your entire pubic hair, it might not be a bad idea to have a razor reserved for just that purpose. But going full Brazilian can cause other issues, and really isn't a good idea according to my gynecologist.

  • I have LONG natural nails and I always have nail varnish on and if you are trying to grow your nails I advise people not wear nail Hardener as It will actually cause your nail to break a lot more and to use nail varnish and nail oil as it will help your nails to flex and not break and buy a glass nail file as the regulars can add tiny fractures in your nail

  • You wanna get rid of your eyebrows, or why do you think they need to be shaved? I don't know if you know that you can do that by yourself, believe me or not, but it's the same as manicure, that isn't that hard and even you can do it, I thought at least you built up your other senses more and don't fall for that shit... With every razor, not only that China produced one, also with an American product in your case 😄 #dumbsponsors

It’s so much easier and safer. 🪒 😄 Don’t be sad, 💜 nails are beyond me, the only nail thing I do is very rarely I just paint my nails at home, I am not very good at it either. I could never do stick on nails, I literally can not even let my nails grow out at all, I much prefer them super short or I will end up biting them.

Color Street has solid and beautiful nail art easy to apply, also in French manicure and colors for your toenails can use the nails on toenails as well that say a just hand, they can stay on anywhere from 10 days or longer depending you can even double up on some of the colors and get your own unique color just thought I’d let you know from one blind girl to another Plus they are 100% real nail polish

Also, when I did mine, I had to use one size bigger than I wanted on my pinkie because they only give you one tiny one per package, and I didn't want to have to use my other package unless I needed it.

It was just 14 people in a room with her this one weekend and we would all talk and just hang out. I do voice impersonations very well, particularly a Indian telemarketer. I would ask her questions in the Indian accent and she thought it was an actual person. When I told her it was just me messing with her she laughed so hard and told me she was certain there was an Indian gentleman in the group.

She put one on me, and immediately I decided that it wasn’t my thing, and we both thought the shape was weird on my hands. Unfortunately, we could not, for the life of us, get that one nail off. I had to live with and extra long pinky nail for like 2 weeks until I finally got it off!
