Product Review: Revlon Top Speed Nail Polish

$4-5 (Walmart, Target, drugstores)

Revlon claims their new Top Speed Nail Polish dries in 60 seconds. Now, I didn't set a timer and put them to the test, but I did notice that it dried considerably faster than my normal polish (Sally Hansen). I also liked the applicator brush better than Sally Hansen's; the polish seemed to glide on easier.

Here's a bad picture of what 2 dry coats looked like:

The color I used is called Chili. Like I said, this picture is kind of bad, but I was really pleased with the appearance. Very bright and bold.

I'm just a little confused about how dry they mean it's supposed to be in 60 seconds. It was barely touchable in about 2 minutes, and there definitely would have been smudges if I hadn't let my nails dry for a while longer. I guess I was hoping for completely dry nails in an instant, and that, I didn't get.

If You're Happy and You Know It...

Ever noticed how when everything is going your way, you tend to forget about God? But when the world is crashing down and everything in your life is left in crumbles, that is when you turn to Him? Yeah, that is the case in a LOT of Christians today. We ask God for help, healing, and miracles but we don't even take time to thank Him for the things He has given us. God sent Jesus, His son, to die for OUR sins and yet we only turn to Him when we want something? Why are we so selfish and greedy? We are humans. But that's not an excuse. Thanking God for His love is not for His sake, but for ours. It is a reminder of how amazing He is and keeps us from forgetting what He has done for us.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. -James 1:17

I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
-Psalm 34:1

Next time things are going your way, don't forget to thank the One that is responsible for every good thing!
