Doing the Most: Hair Fake, Nails Fake, Everything Fake…

- By Bossip Staff

Being a beautiful black woman can be hard work, but many of us ladies are working harder and not smarter by using accessories that detract from our beauty instead of making our job of being fierce and fabulous a little easier.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing that lifts my heart more than the smell that fills my nostrils after opening a fresh pack of Indian Remy hair. And if it wasn’t for my acrylic tips my fingernails would be bitten down to the bone marrow. But when it comes to enhancements, the same rule applies as to anything else in life: Balance. Many of us think that all we have to do is throw on the ponytail and glue on the false eyelashes and walk down the runway of life, but your enhancements shouldn’t be your beauty, they should enhance the beauty you already have.

Take a look at the following list and ask yourself, are these things helping or making the job harder than it has to be? (Continue)

    Why single out a few? They are ALL fake. Does not matter if they are black, yellow, green,red or white. That is what Hollywood is like.

      NICE NEWS !
      My friend Vanessa, a 25 yrs lady, has announced her wedding with a m’illionaire young man Ronald who is the CEO of a MNC. It’s amazing, she said she just posted her profile on a m’illionaire d’ating s’ite called ———RichMatchmaker. ℃○M——– – and received his chat invitations a few days later. Then, everything went so well that I can’t believe it’s true! Every love story will unfold on it’s own..——-

  • I'm ze true silver hare

    I love that everything about me is natural, and I pull men more than the girls who have all these things done. It was funny reading through this list because everything up there i have naturally. I have natural hazel eyes. I have natural shoulder length hair (Never relaxed), I have naturally long eyelashes, I am a 38d, 23 inch waist and 36 inch hips. Although my nails are pretty short, they are healthy. And I don’t need collagen, “black don’t crack” lol

    • MY CAPS LOCK IS BROKE!!!

      Good for you.The only thing your missing now is a price tag…You do not have to sell us on how good you look.No one gives a damn.Have a good day thirst-bucket.Stay Black!!

    • JustAshley

      LOL! @MY CAPS LOCK IS BROKEN!!!

    • I'm ze true silver hare

      LOL @ MY CAPS LOCK IS BROKE. I wasn’t selling nothing. I was just saying that I was blessed to not have to pine for what most women desire. I was trying to say, to love your natural self, and love how you created. There’s plenty things I wish I could change, 1. I’m not tall enough. 2. My nose is too narrow. 3. My lips are not as full as I’d like, 4. My thighs/legs/calves are not well defined, even though I run 3 times a week. 5. I have buck teeth..I could go on and on.. all I was saying is that we are all born different. But sometimes what others have we want. No one is perfect, but we should try to be content and look at the good things in our body.

    • I'm ze true silver hare

      Also, I never said I “looked good” all those things I mentioned were in reference to the points made in the article. I could have all those things and still be butt ugly with a donkey face!lol

    • MY CAPS LOCK IS BROKEN!!!

      @I’m ze true silver hare-I hear you on that one.We all need to love ourselves for who are.The good and the not so good.Though I’m inclined to agree with your second comment the first one was still lil suspect hon!I just had to get you!But really I agree with you,none of us are perfect so we need to embrace what we have and make it look good while doing it.Enjoy your evening..

  • shanita102

    Hollywood is fake, but not color blind. This applies to most women in the entertainment industry. They all tryna keep up with each other, not knowing that most of em dont even look human anymore. Black, white, yellow, whateva…

  • JustAshley

    Most celebrities take fakeness to a whole other level. After plastic surgery, tons of makeup and crash diets, they still air brush their photos. *shrug*

    People claim they want “real” but when they get it, they don’t want it.

    • natgirl21

  • http://spida14233@gmail.com spida

    most in Hollywood are fake..dat ain’t nothin new..

  • http://spida14233@gmail.com spida

    but most of da time, its our black sisters that spend all dere money on dat fake shit…out of experience of da gurls I dated dat was black, 99.9% had a weave or somethin fake in dere head compared to whites dat I dated…poor blacks and wealthy blacks wear more of da weave nails shit..just like how more black males wear more earrings..once an old white woman compared my studs to her daughters, i ban earrings

  • Sha

    It’s not a big deal enhancing stuff here and there…what drives me nuts is when women over do it.

    For example it’s nothing for a female in the D to walk down the street with false lashes on that look like awnings for eyes.

    My philosophy is if you’re gonna do it, may as well do it right.

    But what can you do? *Shrugs*

  • G.M.

    women are so self-concious, they’ll never be satisfied with what they have…i mean, when u really think about it, they’re still gonna get old and no amount of surgery can stop time…so, those implants/surgeries can only get u attention/keep u youthful for a certain amount of time…what i dont get is how women can get the surgery done, then deny they ever had it…what was the fuccin point of gettin the sh1t if ur gonna be ashamed of it

  • Redbonelicious

    Love yourself!! These people that get all this plastic surgery dont even need it they look fine without it. lil kim looks so terrible now

  • PrettyLady08

    Not as much as lil kim. she looks like a different person

  • alfred pierre

    it’s not fine because some many people have taken it too far. what’s going to happen when they get older.

  • Livy

    Mike, you led the way, taking all the slings and arrows for fixing your nose and skin and lips. Now it is universally accepted among black people that we hate themselves and we openly envy our celebrities ability to do something about it.

  • tommykimon

    Who cares I rock weaves but I am blessed with everything else. I do tend to stay away from fake nails and contacts. Don’t want to be completely fake lol

  • http://www.nudewebpics.com Free Naked Pics

    Kim betta keep dropping records..pretty soon that shyt will start sagging and she’ll need to be able to afford to maintain that shyt.
