Best No-Chip Nail Polish!

Hello everyone!

I am coming to you today with some great news, are you ready to hear it? You might want to sit down because I am about to tell you that I have found a nail polish formula that does not chip for close to a weeks worth of wear. Yes, a WEEK.

This magic nail polish is from Revlon. It is called the Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy range.

I found this at my local drugstore and decided to give it a try, it was around nine dollars, and I’ve fallen in love with it. The polish is easy to apply, it has a nice brush, it goes on smooth and fairly opaque. Once it has dried I use a good top coat and I can usually get up to a week’s worth of wear with little to no chips at all. And I can do this while working with my hands all day. If it can survive a cash register and phone system then it’s a winner in my books.

My only issue with the range is the colour selection. I tend to like more neutral and pastel colours, and this range only has a few of those. Most of the shades are fairly rich or they are very vibrant colours. If you are into that kind of thing, then it’s just extra good news for you.

The colours I have in my collection are the ones that I adore the most, and use frequently.

The shades in order from left to right

-100 Cardshark (bright pink/peach)

-020 All or Nothing (baby pink)

-510 Sure Thing (white)

-540 Checkmate (nude)

I hope you guys are able to try this range and find some shades that you fall in love with, because it really is worth the buy. If you try and colours please let me know in the comments! Or tell me which one of the ones that I have is your favourite!

Until next time,

Meghan.

What I Got For My Birthday: 2016

Hi everyone!

I celebrated my 20th birthday a couple weeks ago and I thought I would share with you everything that I was spoiled with. I don’t know about you but I am personally very nosy and I love to see what everyone else receives as gifts on holidays.

Of course I am not here to brag, i’m just excited to show you like I would share with a friend.

My friends, boyfriend, and family made me feel very loved with birthday dinners, beautiful cards, kind words and special little gifts. I was a very happy girl.

From my boyfriend Derek I got a lovely card, dinner out for just the two of us, a cake, and some lovely nail polishes. These are the colours that he picked out for me from Sally’s Beauty Supply stores. They are the Nina brand and the colour names are shown in the pictures below if you’re interested! (Blue is “Ocean View” and purple is “Lilacing Discipline”)

From my friends I received some chocolate (which I ate… oops) and some gag gifts. Those are not internet friendly so I chose to keep them out of the haul! But you can use your imaginations. I’ll give you one hint, one of them included a giant picture of my best friend’s face. I love my friends.

From my relative family I received some cards as well as some birthday money that I used for a mini shopping spree. So look out for some hauls in the near future!

From my sister I was totally spoiled. She won a brand new Keurig 2.0 at a party and chose to give it to me for mine and Derek’s apartment next year.

She also gave me a beautiful fashion themed colouring book. I have one of the sample pictures shown below! I can’t wait to start filling in the pages and put some of them into frames. If you want to know how I do this then check out my Colouring Pages Wall Art DIY post here !

From my wonderful parents I got a huge frozen themed balloon (which made me very happy) and some beautiful diamond earrings. They are little spheres in a white gold with a bunch of little stones. They’re going to be perfect everyday style studs.

So that concludes my little haul! If I can find any links to the products I will put them below as always. I am so thankful for all of the wonderful people in my life, and that includes you guys so thank you very much. I had a lovely day and I am proud to say that i’ve now entered my 20’s.

All my love,

Meghan. x
