Revlon Nail Art and Braid How-To Video and Giveaway


We teamed up this month with our friends at Revlon to showcase a hair and nail trend this month. We present you our take on braids and nail art. I think I missed a very important life lesson as a child: properly braiding my hair. In the past year, I’ve conquered the fishtail and am trying very hard to do a French braid on myself. It’s a work in progress. But the one braid I can do practically sleeping is a traditional one. Especially when they are tiny, peek-a-boo style braids like I show you in the video above. I like to call this style something I do on day two/three hair to make the texture seem more styled.

For the nail art, this one is pretty simple thanks to Revlon Top Speed™ Nail Enamel and Revlon Nail Art Stencil.  I applied two coats of the Top Speed in Sterling, a shiny silver then placed the Nail Art Stencil sticker on my dry nail. From there, it just took one coat of Orient (a classic red) on the top. I love how easy it was, and would be interested in seeing more Revlon Nail Art Stencils in other varieties in the future. Perhaps chevron stripes?

Our friends at Revlon are once again gifting 10 Product Girl readers with a product featured in this video. This month, we’ve got a Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel up for grabs!

  1. I really love the braid trend. If my hair was just a Little bit longer I’d rock the fishtail braid all the time! I like to throw some little traditional braids in my hair every once in a while. Such a cute look. 🙂

  2. I have collar bone length hair so I like to throw in a few clip in extensions so I can still rock all of the fun long fishtail braids. Match to the color of your hair & nobody will be able to tell the difference.

  3. I wore my hair in a braid every single day up until a month ago, because it was down past my waist! I’ve since cut it to about my collarbone and donated the hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. I love the braid trend, and watching the youtube vids on The Beauty Department (Lauren Conrad’s site) have really helped! That’s how I learned to do a fishtail braid!

  4. I’m so happy the braid trend is back! I would French braid my hair when I was younger. Now I love the simple braid across the top of the head down the side! Also loving the fishtail- simple, a touch messy but fun!!!

  5. I love the braid trend, and wish my hair was a little bit longer! It reminds me of when I was younger and all of us girls would sit around and braid each other’s hair. So fun!

  6. Braids got me through the summer I reached puberty and my hair texture changed and frizzed like nobodys business. I will always have a love for them. I am determined to conquer the fishtail braid as soon as I have some time to find a tutorial on one.

    Braiding is an art and it takes a while to master but once you do, you NEVER forget how to do it. Keep at it an you will be rewarded!

  7. I love braids, i just wish i was better at making braids! my favorite is the side braid and the french braid that wraps around your head kindda! i love this video and will keep on practicing!
