Nail of the Day: Avon Nailwear Pro+ in Red Reveal

Avon Nailwear Pro+ in Red Reveal

Today I bring to you Avon's Nailwear Pro+ polish in Red Reveal.

As I may have told you in past posts, I have A LOT of nail polish.  Surprisingly enough, out of all of the colors I own, I didn't actually have a true red polish until now!  I received this little gem in a Christmas gift bag from my friend Becca that was full of Avon products!  
If you would like to see what else I got, check out my haul video here:

Avon Nailwear Pro+ is a very smooth-applying cool red polish.  After the first coat, I was quite satisfied with the color payoff.  The second coat easily made the color even more vibrant.  The staying power of this polish has been very good so far.  After a full day, there is not a chip in sight (which is really good for me since I'm SUPER hard on my nails).   Overall, I am very satisfied with the polish.  I'm extremely happy to finally have a classic red polish in my collection.  I'm sure I will be getting a lot of use out of this color!

If you have used any Avon polishes that you have enjoyed, be sure to let me know!  

Thanks for reading!

Review: Gap Favorite Lip Balm

This might sound weird, but...

I am a self-professed GAP CHAPSTICK LOVER.  I know, I know.  This sounds very weird.  I mean, how in the world is a chapstick that comes from a clothing store actually good enough quality that you would say it's your favorite??  

Well let me just tell you, they are amazing!  I mean, AMAZING.  

These little ditties are super hydrating and come in some delicious flavors!  I have been using Gap Favorite Lip Balm regularly for over five years now.  I bought my first tubes in Hawaii on a whim while shopping with my sister. I was in need of some chapstick during the trip and found that the flavors they were offering sounded delicious!  Little did I know that I would end up owning I would say, upwards of 30 different tubes over the next five years.

I have always had trouble finding a chapstick that felt great on my lips when first applied, but also kept them hydrated for a few hours without the fear that they will dry out and I will jump into a panic for another swipe of hydration across my lips.  Gap Favorite Lip Balm gives me an adequate amount of hydration and keeps my lips happy for quite a few hours.  Another great thing about these guys is that they protect you lips from the sun.  All of their "Favorite Lip Balms" include SPF 18 in them, which is pretty awesome if you ask me.

These are just a few of the many "sticks of AMAZING" that I own.  

I am excited to share this little wonder that is so underrated in the beauty community!  I hope that you will pick up a Gap Favorite Lip Balm next time you are in a store.  I usually find them at the checkout counter in one of those plastic bins next to the register.

I'm Back! I Promise!

I Owe You An Explanation...

All I can say is that I'm bad.  So bad.  So bad at keeping up with things I vow to never let fall to the wayside.  I have no excuse.  I was a bad blogger for the past month!  I have a slough of things I could tell you that got in the way of me posting, but none of them are really valid reasons as to why I didn't keep up.  What I will tell you is that I'm back!  And I'm here to stay.  The past month was filled with so many disappointments in the job market, as well as some real improvements in my outlook for the next year!  
Christmas brought about a slough of products and opportunities for more products for me to try out new things, review them, and share those reviews with you!  Therefore, I wanted to give you an explanation and a promise that there are many new, fun things in store for this new year coming!  Thanks for sticking around and keep an eye out for some fun new posts!
