NOTD: Revlon Emerald City

As soon as I saw this nail polish in Dollarama I knew I had to have it. It is a beautiful emerald green with tons of green glitter throughout. The nail polish hoarder in me just couldn't put it down. When I got home and took the price sticker off I realized that it is a Matte Suede polish. This is the first matte polish in my collection and I love it!

I was so afraid that the glitter would cease to be glittery, but it kept enough shimmer to it. It gives the polish a textured look. The only downside I found to this polish was that if you don't have a matte top coat you cant put one on without losing the matte-ness of the polish. And without a top coat I found this polish chipped easily. I had very noticeable tip wear on day two. I might invest in a top coat on Boxing Day if I can find one on sale.

I am so happy that I keep finding Revlon polishes at Dollarama as I love the formulations, colours, and staying power, but can't afford to pay full price right now. Revlon has quickly become one of my favourite polish brands.

 
During December I'm going to share some Christmas things with you from around my home, as well as, some Awesome things about the Christmas season! This was my view while blogging today, the Christmas tree is in its first stages of decoration and the Lions game is on for the boyfriend. Its been a great December 2nd so far! If you are interested in home decor then head on over to my mom's blog (The Creative Me and My McG) for all things DIY, Home Decor, and budget buys.

    1. Because I live so close to the US border most of the sports my boyfriend watches are US teams.
