NOTD: Revlon Girly & My Brother’s Birthday!

Posted on: February 27, 2013

Revlon Girly. I picked this up at Walmart the other night, only because there is a buzz about this polish and a lot of people have a hard time finding it. Which kind of cracks me up because it is everywhere I go. I have also received a ton of your emails asking about this polish and if it is a dupe for Deborah Lippmann’s Candy Shop. I haven’t seen Candy Shop in person but I can tell you just from the online swatches, this is not a dupe for Candy Shop. They are very similar but the DL polish has more colors of glitter, red, orange, green, turquoise, yellow, pink, white; along with different glitter shapes and sizes. Revlon Girly is a pink gel base with hot pink, navy blue, golden copper-y and silver glitters, depending on the light different colors show up. Which is part of the fun of glitter polish, right?

I have 2 coats of Girly over the Anna Sui polish I showed in yesterday’s post. I’m trying to extend the life of this manicure as the Anna Sui polish showed tip wear right away. I think these look nice together.

On the left is Girly by itself, 2 coats. On the right is what I’m wearing. As you all know I do not like the dreaded VNL, so I would always wear this polish over another. But if you like sheer polish, I think it does give a good bit of coverage.

I do like this, which is so unusual for me? I am really liking glitter polish here lately. Also, today is my brother’s birthday so I thought this would be a festive polish for his birthday lunch!

Happy Birthday Jim!. My oldest brother is on the left, he is next to Bill, my niece Barbie’s fiancé. My brother is an amazing guy who I love very much. He used to be a jockey, he was 6th in the nation when he was 17 years old. He lives about 45 minutes from here on 5 acres in the woods. He has deer, elk, and turkeys in his yard all the time. He raises racing pigeons and has a pigeon loft. When Jim gets “into” something, he is in all the way, which is one of the things I love about him. He is a great father to Barbie, Jami and Mickey. He has a beautiful wife Tammy. He has worked for the same company since 1979, but today he turns 62. Isn’t that the age you are supposed to retire?

My brother Jim has the best memory of anyone I know. He tells stories of when we were little and I’m like where was I? He says I was there but I don’t remember so it’s good to have him around, if for nothing else, than his stories. We had a lot of fun when we were kids.
Happy Birthday Jim!

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by.

I like that picture a lot. We would play all day without many restrictions and even have sleepovers outside where we “spied” on the neighbors. LOL But I’m 59 and my play was in the 60’s.


Ahh, for the good ol days! 😊

Wait your oldest brother is on the right? He looks so young and the guy on the left looks more like your brother….no?


Thanks for the edit Lori. I can always count on you to find my mistakes! You are so right, but I changed it, so it reads correctly now. 😘 Sent from my iPad

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
