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!

Blogtober Day 9: A Surprising Transitional Nail Polish

Friday, 10 October 2014

Last week I made a post about nail polishes that were being replaced with more seasonally appropriate ones. One of the polishes was the Rimmel 60 Seconds polish in Hot Chili Pepper, when I first bought this colour months ago I thought it was more of a summer polish, a darker orangey-red and great for a little drama on the nails. Since I wasn't exactly ready to make the switch completely to darker nails just yet I decided to put it on just one more time. It's perfect for fall too guys I tell you! I have to say that since I put this on a couple days ago (in every effort to hold onto that feeling of not quite summer, but not really fall) I noticed that it is actually a really unique shade to head into fall with. When I look at this colour it's almost like I took the colour of the leaves and put it on my nails, it has that burnt orange undertone without being too overpowering and has a perfect amount of red in it.

Needless to say this one surprised me, and I think I'm recanting my "it's heading into my tub of nail polishes that I won't use until next summer" idea and keeping it with my fall polishes.

The quality of the polish is good for a drugstore polish, but it's not Essie by any means. It requires a second coat to get the right amount of boldness, but it dries really quick, and lasts about a week. I put this on on Saturday and by Friday it was chipping.
