Nabi Navy

I can't find much information about this brand but I picked up a few of their hologram polishes at Walgreens a few months ago on clearance. Nabi Hologram Navy is a truly beautiful navy scattered holo unlike anything in my collection. Shown here at 2 coats with no topcoat to preserve the holo effect that can so often be negated with topcoat. Nabi Navy was very easy to apply and is shown here at 2 coats. It does dry quickly so you do have to be careful about going over an area more than once or you might get a bit of dragging. Overall a gorgeous and unique polish that I'm thrilled to have!

Zoya Rayne

Zoya Rayne is from their Spring 2015 Delight collection.
Zoya Rayne is a medium toned icy blue packed with turquoise micro shimmer. Perfect for snowy, icy cold days or sunny spring weather! Rayne is pretty streaky so I definitely needed 3 coats. Unlike anything else in my collection and definitely a keeper!

SmartNails Vinyl Sticker Stencils With Zoya

This is actually my second set of Smart Nails Diamond sticker stencils. I first used them way back 2010 for a nice black and white manicure. I don't like version quite as much but the stencils are still so easy to use. This time I started with a base of Zoya Prim and added diamonds of Zoya Sailor.

OPI Ski Teal We Drop

OPI Ski Teal We Drop is from their Swiss Collection for Fall 2010. It's a gorgeous deep teal that is very easy to apply and shown here in 2 coats. I love OPI's wide brush and Ski Teal We Drop is a very beautiful color unlike any other in my stash. Definitely a keeper and I need to get one for my sister Ashley since this will go so well with her wardrobe.

Zoya Prim

Zoya Prim is from their Wishes collection for Winter/ Holidays 2014.
I love the name of this polish but that's all! Zoya Prim is one of my least favorite Zoya polishes of all time second only to Zoya Brooklyn. I love blue polish but Prim has a dated frosty finish with lots of brushstrokes. It's still fairly easy to apply but this color and finish seems to highlight every flaw in my nails. Blech.

Zoya Remy & Ryan

I love blue polish so this tone on tone look is right up my alley. I started with Zoya Remy and then added Zoya Ryan leaving a triangle of Remy exposed. Easy and pretty.

Sally Hansen Work Of Tart

Sally Hansen Work of Tart is from their Sugar Shimmer collection. I love textured polishes and this one looks so gorgeous in the bottle. Unfortunately the formula is pretty terrible. Shown here at 3 coats, it was very streaky at two and still not quite even after the third coat. I could live with that but it also took over two and a half hours to dry! The color and finish are drop dead gorgeous though, dusty faded blue raspberry with tons of gold micro shimmer. Work of Tart has a contemptible formula but is just too pretty and unique to pass along. Maybe I can layer one coat of it over a similar base color next time.
 Keep up with what I'm reading on Goodreads!

Zoya Ryan

Zoya Ryan is from their Fall 2014 Entice Collection.
Zoya Ryan is shown here at just one coat. It's a bit than I normally like as it can look black in low lighting bu I never pass up a one coat wonder! Zoya Ryan will be great for nail art both as a dark background that's not quite as harsh as black and for detail work since it's so pigmented. An excellent polish!

Zoya Remy

Zoya Remy is from their Fall 2014 Ignite Collection.
Go get Zoya Remy right now. Just do it. It's one of the most amazing polishes in my collection and a must have for any blue polish lover. Shown here at ONE COAT, Remy was like applying liquid velvet to my nails. I still can't believe I got all of this gorgeous color and depth in just one coat. Deep rich blue absolutely loaded with gold and copper micro shimmer. Zoya Remy is simply stunning and just might be my favorite polish of the year!

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!
