Milani Fresh Teal

Milani Fresh Teal is shown here at 2 coats. Milani Neons like this one have been popping up at Dollar Trees around the country recently so keep an eye out if you like neons! Fresh Teal has a good formula and is a definite keeper for me. The only thing I don't like about this line is the painted bottles. The polish color is actually quite different than the bottle but if you can find it for a buck they are a great value.

Maybelline Denim Dash

A friend of mine recently gifted me a few dozen nail polishes including this stunner, Maybelline Denim Dash! I love blues, matte finishes, and one coat wonders and Denim Dash is all three rolled into one perfect polish. I've never seen a matte polish apply so nicely, self-leveling in just one easily applied coat. The color is gorgeous too, a nice medium toned blue with silver micro shimmer. Thanks Kay for all of the polish!

Zoya Muse & Ling Nail Art

I love simple nail art & this look is about as simple as it gets. I started with a base of Zoya Ling & then added a swipe of Zoya Muse. Done!

Zoya Muse

Zoya Muse is from their Summer 2014 Bubbly collection.

This is a tricky polish review! Zoya Muse is a blue raspberry jelly with Zoya's lovely gold microshimmer & pastel cellophane glitter featured in Monet, just a smaller size. I had a lot of trouble applying this one. Muse is very pigmented so only needed 2 coats, but you absolutely can't go over a wet area without dragging, in this case pulling off all of the polish you just applied. It wasn't self-leveling either. I remember asking Will to help accomplish a minor task saying, "I don't want to mess up my nails because I never want to use this polish again."

But then I caught a glimpse of my hands in the mirror later that night couldn't help but notice how gorgeous this polish is. Over the next few days I decided that Zoya Muse is just way too pretty to give up on after one try. I've never seen anything else quite like Zoya Muse & it just looked great on me.  She's a keeper even after a bad first go round!

Zoya Rebel & Cosmo Nail Art

Sometimes I'm too busy to do my nails as often as I'd like & my manicure actually has time to start looking worn & chipped. That was the case when I wore the lovely Zoya Rebel. I needed to get out the door but I hadn't done my nails for days. I grabbed Zoya Cosmo & dabbed it on the three spots that had chipped & then added more wherever I thought it would look pretty. Manicure saved! It turns out that tons of people noticed my nails that night & all of them asked me if they were inspired by the movie Frozen. They weren't & I haven't seen it, but everyone who asked looked so happy that I just said yes!

Poshinality Tomboy

Poshinality launched earlier this year and I've got one to show you! Poshinality Tomboy is a slate blue creme with a great formula shown here in 2 easily applied coats. I love square bottles since they store so nicely & the brush is pretty standard, which means works great but nothing noteworthy. Poshinality Tomboy is a gorgeous polish that goes with everything! I've got my eye on their spring collection, 5 cremes that look truly lovely together.
I'm a voracious reader! You can follow me on Goodreads!

Zoya Ling


Zoya Ling is from their Tickled Summer 2014 collection.
Tickled & Bubbly

Zoya Ling is "a vibrant royal blue cream that is evenly balanced to flatter most skin tones" according to Zoya & that's a great description. I love blue polishes & Ling is no exception. I'll do a comparison post with Zoya Breezi sometime in the near future, but I'm keeping both! Ling is opaque in two coats. Sorry for the messy bottle! I was watching Game of Thrones instead of looking at the bottle while painting my nails...

Zoya Rebel



Zoya Rebel is from their Awaken collection for Spring 2014.

I love blue polishes and Zoya Rebel is no exception. It's a nice medium blue with just a hint of green packed with silver microshimmer. I ended up wearing this one for a week which is almost unheard of in my world! Shown here at 2 coats, be sure to wait an few minutes between coats to avoid dragging.

Zoya Vega



Zoya Vega  is from their Spring 2014 Magical Pixie Dust Collection.

I'm a huge fan of Zoya's classic Pixie Dust polishes. That's probably an understatement. If I was forced to choose my top 5 favorite collections of all time, all three of the Classic Pixie Dust collections would be in that list. I wasn't sure if I would love these new Magical Pixie dusts quite as much though. I love holographic polishes but I've never been a huge fan of chunky glitters.

Zoya Vega is a beautiful dusty blue which just happens to be one of my favorite polish shades. While I don't love Vega quite as much as the Classic Pixie Dust polishes this one is still a keeper for sure. I love the idea of using a polish full of bling and sparkle to perk up a typical jeans and tshirt sort of day.
The formula was a bit tricky, very dry! I was hesitant to add polish thinner but decided to give it a try anyway & just a few drops helped significantly. Vega is absolutely loaded with sparkle & tons of holographic glitter too. A fun polish worth a few drops of thinner.

Zoya Sailor

Zoya Sailor is from their Fall 2013 Cashmere collection.Sailor is a navy blue creme with a great formula that barely needs two coats. It's a fantastic navy that never looks black, even in low light. While it's still a couple of shades too dark to leap into my all time favorites, Sailor is definitely a keeper!

Zoya Sunshine

Zoya Sunshine is from the Pixie Dust Fall 2013 collection. My regular readers know I LOVE the Zoya Pixie Dust polishes & I couldn't be happier with this new set! Here's what Zoya has to say about them.

nfused with even more magic and wonder! Because everyone wants more of it... The color experts at Zoya went back to the lab and created six more beautiful, long-wearing textured, matte and sparkle Zoya PixieDust Colors for Fall 2013! The incredible and best-selling formula is sure to captivate with a magical sparkle and sugary finish like no other.
 
IMPORTANT PixieDust Application Information -  Do not use a base coat or top coat. Apply 1-3 (for full coverage) thin coats of polish. Allow product to dry down completely matte in between layers for full textured effect. The PixieDust textured formula may take up to 10 minutes to dry completely matte. Once dry, the textured finish is long lasting, matte and ultra-glittery!

I could wear Sunshine for days if I were the sort of lady who did that. Goes with everything & a new top 5 favorite! It's a nave blue Pixie Dust that covers in just one coat! The Pixie Dust polishes never require clean up because they stay right where you put them, never any pooling. They are great for nail art for the same reason. I've been using a base coat when I wear them & it doesn't seem to affect the finish as long as you wait for it to completely dry before applying the polish. Long Live the Pixie Dusts!

Zoya Dream


Zoya Dream is part of Zoya Zenith, their 2013 Winter Holiday collection.
Well I must say that Zoya Dream is just drop dead gorgeous! Zoya describes it as a deep space blue with holographic glitter & that's a perfect description for this amazing polish. Shown here in 2 coats; be sure to wait a bit between coats to avoid dragging. Zoya Dream is a new favorite for sure, I'd say a must have for any blue polish lover.

Zoya Cassedy

Zoya Cassedy is part of Zoya Zenith, their 2013 Winter Holiday collection. It's described as a pewter metallic & that is quite accurate. Sometimes look like a steely blue & sometimes leans a bit green. Great formula that reminds me of Zoya Edyta. Unique color that any metallic polish lover should pick up for their collection.
