Chipped nail polish is one of the biggest beauty struggles. It can be so frustrating when you spend the time to paint your nails only for them to chip the next day. I try to do my nails once a week, which is hard to find the time to just do that. I've discovered several tricks and hacks to make your nail polish last at least a week, with minimal chipping. I do still get some with this method, and it depends on the nail polish color I use. For the most part though, my manicure will last 5-7 days.

Essie is always my go-to nail polish brand because I have found they last the longest and I love their base and top coats. However, with any nail polish brand, you'll find that some colors tend to last longer than others.

Watch the simple manicure tutorial above that you can do at home, and will last up to a week with minimal chipping.

Pictured above is Essie Go with the Flowy, which I was wearing prior to the tutorial that lasted 7 days with very minimal chipping.

Each month I go through countless products, some are repeats that I consistently re-purchase, and some are new things I tried and may not have worked out. I've been on a kick of trying to get through as many products as I can before allowing myself to purchase more. Allow it's tough, it's super satisfying to clean out my stash! This month I used up tons of brow products, curly hair products, and even my favorite full-coverage concealer. Here's items I used up this month:

Have you ever attempted a smokey eye and it turn out looking like you got punched in the face or haven't slept in weeks?! Smokey eyes can be tough to create, and if they're overdone it's hard to wear them without feeling silly. I'm sharing a super easy way to apply eyeshadow for a subtle, wearable smokey eye. This look uses purple and brown tones making it perfect for making brown or green eyes pop. I'm also using all drugstore products to make it affordable for all.
