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!

Current Fall Nail Obsession

Monday, 17 November 2014

For the 3rd week in a row I have used the same nail polish combination on my nails. I've received tons of compliments on this duo! 

Last Christmas I bought this nail duo from walmart for between $10-15, all I remember is it was cheaper to buy this duo then to buy 2 Essie polishes on their own. 

Chinchilly is a grey taupe colour that goes on quite thin, I need 2 coats to get full coverage. 

Stroke of Brilliance is a blue purple chunky glitter polish 

Overall, I love this combination, it's understated yet elegant, the Chinchilly colour is perfect for fall/winter without being a berry colour and the Stroke of Brilliance glitter pairs perfectly with it. 

I do not currently have a top coat or a base coat, so I don't do anything to help the polishes last as long as possible, but they get a good 5 days out of them before the chipping is really bad 

These pictures were taken after exactly one week of wear, and certain nails have chipped more than others but the chipping was considerable. 

Since I'm in the market for a top coat- do you have any suggestions of reasonably priced good top coats and base coats?
