Braided Hair & Nail Polish... (and a Revlon Giveaway!)


Happy Monday! Well, maybe less happy and more grumpy. It's raining and quite gloomy here today - the kind of weather that makes you want to stay in bed as long as humanly possible.

When I'm pressed for time and I have to do my hair, the trusty side braid is the only way forward. Here's one of my favourite ways to switch it up. It's simple and absolutely perfect for squeezing an extra day of wear out of your hair (just make sure to dry shampoo your roots).


Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel

I am also giving away some beautiful shades of Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel this month to 10 lucky readers. The shade I am wearing in the video is called Orient Express (which I paired with a Revlon Nail Art Stencil for a fin extra little something). These polishes go on so well - opaque in 2 coats and they literally do not need a top coat since they dry so quickly.

Make sure you comment on this post with you e-mail address/twitter username if you'd like to be entered to win one of their new shades for this fall/winter :)

  25. I really like your hairstyle, though I am pretty hopeless at french braiding. Maybe I'll need to set aside some time to learn it properly.

    And what a pretty nail polish!
