Nicole By OPI Promises In The Dark

Nicole By OPI Promises In The Dark was part of a promotion early this year involving Dove Chocolate. They gave away 25,000 sets of two polishes & a coupon for chocolate. I was a lucky winner! The bottle is very oddly shaped & so difficult to hold for pictures without looking awkward! I love the wide brush though.

Nicole By OPI Promises In The Dark is a very dark chocolate brown that looks black in most light. Shown here at 2 coats that went on like a dream thanks to the wide brush and excellent formula. I'll still be passing this one along to a friend though since it's just too dark for me.

Thanks for reading!

Zoya Autumn

Zoya Autumn is from their Fall 2014 Ignite Collection.
Zoya Autumn is the copper polish of my dreams! No other company does micro shimmer as well as Zoya and this copper polish loaded with gold flecks is a real show stopper. The first coat is patchy but everything looks magically perfect by the second coat. Truly gorgeous!

Zoya Chanelle

Zoya Chanelle is from their Naturel 2 collection and is described as a toasted almond cream. I'd call it a medium toned, well balanced brown that will look nice on a wide range of people. Chanelle is shown here at 2 coats that provided fantastic coverage but weren't the most self-leveling so a top coat is definitely required. Overall it's a lovely color that dries about 2 shades darker than bottle color and a keeper for me since I don't have anything quite like it.

Nicole By OPI Better After Dark

Nicole By OPI Better After Dark was part of a promotion early this year involving Dove Chocolate. They gave away 25,000 sets of two polishes & a coupon for chocolate. I was a lucky winner! This is the first Nicole By OPI polish I've ever tried. The bottle is very oddly shaped & so difficult to hold for pictures without looking awkward! I love the wide brush though. Better After Dark is a lovely medium brown loaded with red shimmer. It was very sheer at first but looked great after just two coats that practically applied themselves thanks to the combination of the wide brush & excellent formula. Not the most exciting color in the world but definitely a keeper!

Zoya Normani

Zoya Normani is from their first release for 2014, Zoya Naturel.

Zoya Normani is a pale brown creme with a hint of mauve, shown here at two coats. I think it could have used a third since I was trying to apply thin coats because the polish was a bit thick. It's a lovely color that will look great on a wide range of skintones but I'm going to pass this one along to a friend. I prefer Zoya Pasha, a highly underrated polish in my opinion!

Zoya Louise

Zoya Louise is from their Fall 2013 Cashmere collection. I don't have nearly enough brown polishes! Louise is a beautiful dark brown that never looks black. Shown here at 2 easily applied coats. I don't think I've ever done a brown polish on my toes but Louise is going to be my next pedicure color for sure.

Sation Weed Out The Wimps Layered With Sation Calorie Countess

You can see a few more of Sation's Glitters in this post. Sation bottles are oval with thick glass bottoms. The brushes are great for ladies like me that love wide brushes. You can purchase Sation's Big 3 Free polishes at their website. Polishes from the Glitter collection retails for $7.

Shown here is Sation Weed Out The Wimps topped with one coat of Sation Calorie Countess. Calorie Countess is a mix of tiny & small copper glitter in a clear base. I like this combination but I really need to try it over a coppery brown polish so I can have some full on copper nails!

OPI You Don't Know Jacques Suede & Christmas Garland Nail Art


I love matte & suede finish polishes. I traded my friend Carla-Rose a Nubar 2010 for You Don't Know Jacques Suede. The formula on the suedes is very tricky. It seems like you need to do one coat without going over anything! It starts to ball up and drag when I tried to level it out. I tried waiting a while for it to dry before I did another coat but I had the same problem. I love the look but I could use some application tips ladies!
The next day I used Zoya Holly & Rina to make garland and then added sparkly bows with China Glaze Ruby Pumps. I added a topcoat too.
