Product Review // Color Street Nail Polish Strips

I was recently sent a set of Color Street Nail Strips & an accent nail sample by my friend Rosy at Radiantly Rosy (you’ll recognize her from the Six Blogger Style series we’ve been doing together!) I’ve used nail strips from other brands in the past but was usually less than impressed between time and effort to apply & also durability. I’ve been pleased with Color Street’s products.

My sample set was in a gorgeous glittery silver called Tinseltown, and the accent nail strips were red. My nails are very brittle and often break, and I hate wearing nail polish because when it inevitably chips within 5 hours of applying, my nails look even more ragged and short than they already are.

Color Street’s strips are much more durable. The only reason I even had to change the red ones was because I accidentally scuffed them on the edge of our grill when we were moving it into the shed during the tropical storm/hurricane prep.

In full disclosure, I can’t speak fully to the durability to their up to two week claim on a personal level. Suffering from anxiety and depression, the events of the hurricanes and fires and some personal familial happenings have been a wreck on my nerves, and I tend to fidget and pick at my nails when it gets really bad. So while the durability may be longer than I saw, I had nervously peeled the strips back off without even realizing it around Day 5.

I am, however, impressed with the colors and prints offered by Color Street. They seem very current and in trend while still offering some kitschy, fun prints (and I’m a sucker for some kitsch!)

I will definitely be ordering more nail strips! My overall experience was very pleasant.

Six Blogger Style: How To Wear Ankle Boots

Welcome to Round 2 of Six Blogger Style!

giftofgabbyblog_sixbloggerstyle_September2017_Ankle-Boots-Collage

Last month, these 5 ladies and myself shared how we wear floral sundresses. Fall is arguably my favorite season, closely followed by Winter. I’ve been so ready to rid my life of the heat of summer and break into the warm and cozy fashion of fall, but alas living in Georgia, it’s still just not cold enough for sweaters yet (boo!) However, I think all of us were ready to bring just a smidge of fall into our lives this month, so we all voted to style ankle boots for September!

Six Blogger Style // How to Wear a Floral Sundress

giftofgabbyblog_sixbloggerstyle_August2017_Floral-Sundress-Collage.jpg

I recently gathered a small group of style bloggers with an idea. What if we all decided on a general item of clothing, print, or fashion trend and styled it our own way?

There are so many different ways to wear pretty much everything, and I love to see how different people style similar items. And so, myself and five other lovely ladies have started Six Blogger Style! This is a once-a-month feature on each of our blogs where our readers can see each of our personal styles.

Since this is the first month, I’m going to introduce everyone underneath their posts! Everyone has written a short introduction for themselves, and I’ll be linking to their blog posts as well so you can learn more about each of their outfits!

How To Reverse-Engineer A Thesis Statement For Your Research Essays

_giftofgabby_2017_How-To-Reverse-Engineer-A-Thesis-Statement-For-Your-Research-Essays

I have always loved writing. My favorite assignments in school were most always writing assignments and essays. But because I am more of a creative writer than a research essay person, I often struggled with research essays. There were always so many different sides to take on issues and various ways  to support or denounce each of these. If you’re in college, I’m sure you already know how many research essays you end up having to write, and without a plan it can take forever. Luckily, I came up with a really easy way to focus in on what to write on.
