Another Video Dump!!

Phewfta!! Sorry for yet another large dumping of videos (alongside another large empty absence here on the blog front)… but here's what I've been up to the past couple of weeks! Lots of editing videos together amidst the end-of-semester-school-madness, flu-as-neverending-as-my-snot, and weather as dreary as my soul. Dang, that got real dark real quick huh? My apologies.
I hope you all are resting up, eating lots, and overall staying happy and healthy this holiday season! If you need a break from family/work/school though I've definitely got you covered with some videos… you know, if you haven't seen any recently (perfectly okay). Enjoy ღˇ◡ˇ(ᵕ꒶̮ᵕෆ

NOTD: Dotted Daisies

Do these nails look familiar? They would if you have an extraordinary memory and are an avid viewer of my YouTube videos; this was the manicure I had on for my "Makeup Collection | Vanity Tour (LIPSTICK, PERFUME, ORGANIZATION, ETC.) " video as well as my "Best & Worst of Beauty: August '14" video. And while I would usually feel that posting daisy nails at this time of the year was a bit seasonally 'inappropriate' (though honestly who am I kidding considering I have no problems wearing dark purple lips in the summer and corals in the winter), the weather has been switching between back and forth between fall 40's and summer (high) 70's. 
My rage is real.
Thank goodness, so is the adorable level of these nails; let's reminisce about them and lazy summer days together, shall we?

I'm a huge fan of the Revlon ColorStay polishes (the brush is wide and flat, the polish is creamy and opaque, etc.) so, when I saw they made a gel version of the formula I was pretty freaking pumped to say the least. I decided to try out "Dealer's Choice", a shimmering aqua-teal, but I'm bummed to say I wasn't as impressed with the formula as its predecessor. It's a bit thicker (read: gloopier) so I struggled to get it to not bubble on my nails. Application issues didn't end there though because the dry time ended up being excruciatingly long; it's one of those polishes that feels dry but then, two or three hours later, you bump your nail against something and there's a big dent in the polish. 
So, to remedy the formula flaws (the polish was too gorgeous in terms of color to take off) I decided to whip out a bobby pin and put daisies over the bubbly bits! Genius if I do say so myself *guffaw*. Five white dots, one pale yellow in the center, and thenfor an extra bit of girly glitzI plopped a gold piece of glitter in the centers as well.

I honestly thought this manicure was adorable; the little addition of a sparkly gold center on the daisies was what really added the d'awww to this otherwise simple and seen-before design in my eyes. Loved it! Even if my initial feelings while painting my nails that day was less than so.

Have you tried the Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy polishes?
Did you have the same bad experience with the formula as I did?
What's creative fixes have you come up with for nail polish blunders?
Do share!
