    I have extremely sensitive skin on my hands and suffer from broken skin under the nail frequently. My 'cuticles' are none existant and i do alot of manual work so my nails are extremely short- i just want normal 1cm nails, not too long or glamorous, any tips, advice etc?

    How long roughly does it take YOU to catch a natural, noticable tan, how long does it last?

    How can i get long flat and thick greek godess eyebrows that look like Luma Grothe's when mine look more thin and pointed like Angelina Jolie's?

    Re: your nails - I take hair skin and nail suppliments and use strengthening polishes. There are lots to chose from out there. I love OPI but Sally Hansen do some good ones too.

    I have never tanned. Ever.

    Do you pluck your eyebrows? You can't encourage them to grow bigger but you can enhance them with extensions which I think are a little bizarre - to thicken them. Or use a decent pencil/gel combo. I love MAC eyebrow pencils. Lots of make up counters do makeovers for free. Give them a go1

    For nails, have you tried using a nail strengthener? You can get them quite cheap in places like boots, just paint it on like nail varnish and let it do its thing. I have a Sally Hansen one (miracle cure - blue bottle) and it's honestly amazing. Also have you tried a manicure recently?

    Can't help on the other things though. As a child from a complete ginger family I don't tan, only burn. And my eyebrows? Well...

    I had my hair dyed ginger last year, it cost me £120. You're so lucky! And i think my nails are too short for a manicure?
