How to: Get More Followers And Likes On Instagram, 10 Tips To Get More Instagram Likes

So you're new to instagram, or maybe you've had it for a while and it's been sitting unused in your phone because your account just isn't taking off? I'm going to teach you some tips and tricks for getting more instagram followers and more instagram likes on your pictures.

Tip #1: Give love, get love.
One of the best ways to get your account name out there is by following other people and liking their photos. They might follow you or like your instagram pictures back, and if they follow you, your account has more visibility because all of their followers can see that they follow you.

Tip #2: What's in a name?
Well, a lot of things are in your name on instagram. Pick a good instagram username. Good instagram usernames are short, easy to remember, and not difficult to spell or type. Try not to use a lot of numbers, and don't use zeros in place of o's in your instagram username. Also, don't put extra or duplicate letters in your instagram username, these make it harder to remember and share.
Some examples of good instagram usernames:
natgeo (National Geographic)
s5a (Sak's Fifth Avenue)

Some examples of bad instagram usernames:
1L0v3y0u get the point.
Pick an instagram username that is clear, concise, and mostly letters, with no extra letters or numbers.

Tip #3: Explore.
Use the explore tab to find new people to follow and like their pictures. The star is the explore tab, and it takes you to the popular page. The pictures appearing on the popular page generally have at least 1000 likes and many of the people whose pictures appear there have hundreds of thousands of followers. These would be good people to follow and like their pictures to get your name around instagram.

Tip #4: Follow instagram on instagram.
Instagram has over a million followers, and by following them, you're making yourself very visible and you're likely to get more instagram followers.

Tip #5: Post worthwhile content.
This is probably the most important tip to get followers who will stay following you for a long time and actively like your photos and interact with your account. Post only your best instagram pictures and make sure that they aren't blurry. It's preferable that you take your instagram pictures with a real camera and not a camera phone, especially if you have a dslr.

Tip #6: Use instagram online.
Instagram has many online apps, many of which allow you to track your instagram stats.
Some online instagram sites I like are:
Statigram ( and

Tip #7: Hashtag your content.
This is one of the easiest ways to get more likes on instagram. Hashtag your content with relevant popular tags, and tags that pertain to your photo. If you post a picture of skittles, some good hashtags would be #skittles #colorful #rainbow
The tags girl, me, and sexy would not help a photo of skittles get more likes.

Tip #8: Follow your favorite stores, brands, and people!
By following accounts you like, you not only gain instagram visibility, but you get to see content from your favorite people! Often times, you will gain followers with common interests, which is a great way to make a new friend!

Tip #9: Keep track of popular tags.
By knowing what tags and types of images are popular, you can post images that will get more likes, and often times get you more followers!

Tip #10: DO NOT buy followers, likes, or instagram "managers."
Buying followers and buying likes are often times a scam, and just not worth it. Do not give your instagram password to anyone but instagram, and do not let any instagram manager talk you into paying for a promotion. We want to keep instagram safe and fun for all the people on it.

I hope you found these tips helpful, they've worked for me!

Acrylic vs. Natural Nails

We've all been there...frustrated with the weakness of your natural nails; the amount of breaking, tearing, peeling and flaking, you sit around and consider getting acrylic nails. Are acrylic nails the right choice for you? Acrylic nails have their perks, but depending on your personal preferences, they may not be worth it.

Perks of Acrylic Nails:
-Acrylic nails add a layer of acrylic over your natural nail, adding a large amount of strength and thickness. I tend to grow my acrylic nails very long and end up using them for tasks.
-You can get nail tips applied under your acrylics, allowing you to get whatever shape and length you want.
-Your nails will rarely break.

The downside: :(
-The fumes and dust from acrylic nails being applied are harmful, that's why nail techs wear masks while applying them (eep.)
-If the technician uses a drill (which is basically an industry standard in this day and age) your natural nails will be practically wrecked underneath. Drills take off a lot of layers of your natural nail, making them much thinner.
-Even though nails are glued on, they can still pop off or break. Trust me, that's not fun. When a nail pops off, it also takes the thin layer of the nail it's glued onto with it.
-They're a complete pain to get off if you decide they're not for you. There are three ways to get acrylic nails off: at many less professional salons, the nail technician will use a tool to pop them off, which hurts and ruins the nail underneath, the nail technician will soak your fingers in acetone, which dries out your nails and fingers, still causing dryness to your natural nail, and then they scrape the acetone-acrylic goo off your nail, or you can wait for them to grow (or break or pop) off your nails which I am currently in the process of. Growing off your acrylic nails leaves you with the best condition of nails afterward, but takes months.
-Acrylic nails are more expensive and take longer than a traditional manicure.
-Your nails look bad when the acrylic grows out and you haven't gone to the salon to get them filled in.
Even once you've had acrylics applied, my nail technicians have recommended I take breaks with no acrylic nails or get a new set every six months, and while I've had fun with my acrylics and gotten a lot of attention for my mile long nails, I'm growing my nails back to natural and I plan to switch over to gel nail polish.

If you decide to get acrylic nails, I recommend telling your technician to use a buffer instead of a drill, but I don't like my nails buffed at all, and your technician probably won't be very pleased.
