Vegan Spinach Pesto Pasta Recipe | No Oil

When I decided to go vegan, one of the things I missed most was pesto.
Luckily, there are a lot of different ways to make vegan pesto. In this recipe,
I decided to throw in some extra greens (spinach) and opted out of oil.

how to apply fake nails

how to apply fake nails
I almost always have a set of fake nails on. They are really easy to apply and are extremely affordable!
Here’s what you’ll need. I recommend the “KISS” brand for nails and glue.

what you'll need

First, you need to prep your nails (file + buff).



Then you’ll want to fit your perfect fit. Match the fake nail that’s closest in size with your nail.

Now it’s time to put on the glue. I choose to use this glue that doesn’t come with the set of nails.
I find that the brush is a lot easier to apply the glue and it holds a lot better.

hold for 30 seconds

I personally also like to clip the length a little bit and then file the nails smooth.

Now it’s time for the fun part  – painting! My favorite brand of polish is essie. I used the color “licorice”.

2 ingredient activated charcoal face mask

2 ingredients is all that is needed for this bad boy (non-toxic glue + activated charcoal)

Activated charcoal has many benefits including deep cleansing of the skin.

all you have to do is open up two of the capsules and mix with two tablespoons of non-toxic glue – see easy peasy

pat down your face with a warm rag to open up your pores – this will make it easier for the charcoal to deep clean 

then apply the mask to your face – I would suggest using a brush instead of your fingers

I put up my hair and waited about 25 minutes for the mask to completely dry

after the mask was completely dry, I started to peel it off. I only used one capsule and one tablespoon of glue so the mask
wasn’t as thick as I would have liked it to be. That’s why I would recommend doubling the recipe.

I took a warm rag and wiped away the rest. My skin felt great afterwards!

ingredients ▾
• 2 activated charcoal capsules
• 2 TBSP non-toxic glue

here’s what to do ▾
– open up two activated charcoal caps
– pour in two tablespoons of non-toxic glue
– mix and apply to face
– let the mask completely dry
– peel away and rinse away the rest
… and don’t forget to moisturize!
