Zoya

Zoya – Robyn (Summer 2010 – Flash Collection)

Friday, 13 August, 2010

I sometimes cringe at blue colors. Especially when they’re turquoise. I admit to cringing a bit when I put this on. However, this color grew on me. It sometimes worked with my skin and sometimes didn’t. I found more often than not it worked. When I’m in the mood, I love me some bright colors – just not hideously I-can-find-you-in-the-dark-while-wearing-sunglasses kind of bright, but this definitely is more in tune with what I consider an acceptable bright color for me.

Maybe I’m getting ballsy in my old age. 😉

Formula: Again, great application. I rarely have problems with Zoya and when/if I do it’s so minor I have a fierce internal debate with whether I should mention it or not because the flaw is usually by my hand (literally). As you can see on my ring finger, there is some nail peeking through…again, that’s me and my heavy handed application. 😀

Barielle

Barielle – Decadence

Friday, 18 June, 2010

In continuing with my thing for teal and turquoise, I now present Barielle’s Decadence.

The shimmer in here makes the color pop and look almost electric against my skin. It’s kind of cool, isn’t it?

Bon weekend, mes amis!

Misa Nail Polish nail polish swatch

Misa – Dirty, Sexy, Money

Monday, 24 May, 2010

I’ve been lemming this color for a long, long, LOOOONG time. I also scored an extra bottle. What does that mean?

Next week-ish/within the first 2 weeks in June I will do a contest giveaway.

First place winner will receive a bottle of Damone Roberts 1968, a bottle of Misa’s Dirty, Sexy, Money AND all 6 bottles of OPI’s Shrek Forever After Collection. Runner up will receive a bottle of Damone Roberts 1968. So stay tuned.

Here is Dirty, Sexy, Money on me. It’s going to be my manicure for the next few days since rain is in the forecast and I won’t be able to swatch.

Small Note: For those of you who mourned the loss of Trans Design and OPI, my fave nail polish seller in CA said their website is almost done…their prices will be 25 cents more than if you go into their store, but $4.25 for a bottle isn’t bad. I nearly fainted when I saw Zoya in the store, too! (For $3.75 a bottle.) We discussed what shipping fees would be but it sounds like it’s going to be pretty good. I’ll let you know more as soon as I find out more info.

Loved that the formula was so easy to apply and that it dried so quickly! Wonderfully opaque in two coats and it had a nice lovely high gloss. It was so shiny that I actually debated on a top coat (which I did anyway). It reminds me of  Rescue Beauty Lounge’s 360, but not as dusky.
