My name is Mikayla! I'm a 22 year old University Graduate with a passion for all things beauty. I stumbled into the online beauty community a year ago and have been obsessed with youtube videos and blogs ever since. After watching hundreds of videos over the past year I figured it was about time I joined the community and posted my own thoughts in my own little space. I'm also recently graduated, unemployed and headed for college in September.

I really enjoy all things beauty, and I really like telling my friends what I think about products so writing them down just felt natural. To me, make up isn't something that you wear to make yourself look prettier, it's something you do on yourself for yourself. It has the power to give you strength to tackle a rough day, the courage to find your inner confidence and sparkle like every girl is meant too.

Other than beauty, I love fashion. Beauty and Fashion are the keys to my heart, along with a great deal. I'm all about a decent deal, and budget shopping is my favourite.

I can't wait to start this journey with the internet and all of you!

What's On My Nails? Ciate Polish Haul and Review

Wednesday, 10 September 2014

Recently Barrie got a Sephora- which has made my days currently! I was once a makeup junkie with NO access to Sephora OR MAC so obviously my sister and I had to pop in.. we just had to right?

While I was in Vancouver I had noticed the Ciate London Nail Polish mini sets and swore I would buy one before I left.. I didn't, which meant I was required to buy it here. I tried to pick more seasonal transition shades, perfect for the summer-fall feeling right now. 

How these little packages work is really quite unique, you pick 3 mini polishes, ranging in colours to nail art (they have one that has little studs in it!) and put them in the cute little box, and it's $22.50.

The pack is really easy to justify, 3 polishes, although minis are cheaper then 3 other nail polishes, and what are the likelihood that I will ever actually finish a bottle of nail polish? That's just how I justified it 

My Picks: Chinchilla, Mistress & Apple and Custard 

I of course had to take of my old polish and try one of the colours right away. So I picked Chinchilla! 

Overall I am enjoying the colour, it's been on for a couple of days without a base/top coat and there aren't any chips. It applies really smooth, but thin, it required 2 layers to get this pigmentation, overall I am happy with the polish and can't wait to try my other ones! I can see myself buying some of their other colours.

I was drawn to it because I couldn't tell if it was blue or grey the first time I looked at it. It almost looks neutral, would match anything! I love it! :)
