Quick and Easy Nail Design with Revlon Nail Art Expressionist
Since I graduated high school, when nail polish was not banned at school anymore, I've always had fancy, colorful nail designs. We had a neighbor who enrolled in Tesda to train in making beautiful Nail Arts, years before it became so popular. She'd go to our house weekly and all four of us (my sisters and mom) will get our nails done. It was our girl bonding of sorts.

Then I got older, and busier, and moved out of my mom's house. The visit to the salon got rare. I was lucky to get fresh polish every month. Then I got pregnant and I got too paranoid. I was worried that the chipped polish will get inside me somehow and harm my little unborn child. Newbie momma didn't know about child-safe, all organic polishes then.

Now I have a little two year old who would sit still for hours if needed just so I can finish painting her nails. I'm still on the fence about this but sometimes, the spark in her eyes can hypnotize me to say yes. But just on her toes. It's a hard no for fingernail polish for now.
I was a regular at the Revlon Warehouse Sale last year. For someone who didn't know much about makeup, I was there almost always first in line as soon as the office opens. It gave me a nice pay off being a shopper for other mommas who couldn't be there.

For myself, I only got a few essentials: a couple of lipsticks, blush, lip tint, haircolor (that I gave as gifts) and nailpolish. I got excited as soon as I saw tubes of Revlon Nail Art hidding among dozens of other random stuff.

I got a few bottles and all of them just disappeared the same night, before I even had the chance to try any. I believe I know the culprit (hey there sister!). Never thought about it anymore until half a year later, Hubs called me and said he has a surprise. Ta Dah! He found a Revlon Nail Art Expressionist in Vincent Van Gold when he was taking out the spare tire from the back of the car. Yey!

I knew Mila will insist that I paint her nails too if she sees me doing mine at home. Had to wait a few more hours until I'm at work so I can try it on. It's amazing how the Revlon Nail Art Expressionist lasted in the car trunk for six months without drying up. The consistency is better than my other nail polish that I recently purchased. It also does not have a very strong chemical smell.

It was hard to think of a nice simple design and I had no skills for the intricate ones. To make the less then perfect design less obvious, I just opted to make each fingernail different. I put on a couple coatings of the base color. I did not have any primer but the color already popped up well. The thin brush of the gold accent was really easy to work with. I felt like pro making straight lines and hearts and stars. I was done in a matter of minutes.

Aside from a chip on the right index finger (was at work and forgot my nails have yet to dry as I type up a storm), it was a record 2 days that my nail art remain flawless. One of the reasons I rarely have my nails done these days is because they just end up being all chipped and ugly within a few hours and I can't touch it up anymore. For Revlon Nail Art Expressionist, I did not even had the chance to apply a clear coat on top of it but it lasted really well.

I definitely need to get more Revlon Nail Art Expressionist colors. They come in lots of other fun combinations that will be a blast to play around with. Hopefully, I could drop by the Warehouse Sale again. I was told they usually start around August (but do not advertise until late in the year). I'll hoard again for sure.
