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 Purity

Zoya Purity is a bright pure white creme polish. Like most white cremes it isn't easy to apply. I tried the 1 thin, 1 medium, 1 thin coat method and it worked fairly well. The polish is still stringy and streaky though, not the worst white I've tried by a long shot (see here!) but nothing great either. I'll definitely be keeping it for nail art though! It's very pigmented so it's easy to get a nice bright white line as pictured in my Burberry nails.

Zoya Willa

Zoya Willa is from their Wishes collection for Winter/ Holidays 2014.
Overall this collection just doesn't do much for me but I am very happy to finally have a black creme Zoya polish. Zoya Willa is nothing special though, I have other black creme polish that apply like a dream in just one coat but Willa most definitely requires two. Very streaky at first but just fine. I'll be using it all the time for nail art. In fact I've already used it for my Burberry plaid nails!

Zoya Margo

Zoya Margo is from their Fall 2014 Entice Collection.

Zoya Margo is a gorgeous red leaning plum polish that applies easily in just 2 coats. Margo is definitely my favorite from this collection and a perfect color for the transition from summer to fall. So rich and beautiful and will look lovely on a wide range of skin tones!

Zoya Veronica

Zoya Veronica is from their Fall 2014 Entice Collection.
Zoya Veronica barely needs a second coat and applies like a dream. Nothing ground breaking here but Veronica will be flattering on most any skin tone and the formula is superb. Definitely a keeper!

American Apparel California Trooper

Today I'm revisiting one of my top five favorite polishes, American Apparel California Trooper. I haven't used it in a few years so I wanted to see if I still love it and I sure do! American Apparel polishes have my all time favorite bottle, thin and rectangular, which makes them line up oh so nicely for storage. California Trooper isn't currently available on American Apparel's site but they have a ton of colors I would love to own. I might have to ask for some this Christmas.
 

Do you guys have any favorite American Apparel polishes?

Thanks for reading!

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!

Revlon Spanish Moss

I don't think Revlon makes this particular line of polish any more so I'm glad that a friend passed Revlon Spanish Moss my way. Army green has always been one of my favorite colors and Spanish Moss is the closest I've found to a true army green polish so far. Nice formula that covers in 2 eaily applied coats.
I love to read! If you do too please find me on goodreads!
Thanks for reading!

Jamberry Kiss

A friend of mine let me borrow a few Jamberry polishes to try out since I've never used them before. I tried one set of their nail wraps earlier this year and they are a lot of fun! Pictured here we have Jamberry Kiss from one of their summer collections. The brush is wider than average which I love and Kiss applied like a dream; I barley needed a second coat. I'm looking forward to trying more since this one is so nice and it looks like they have some pretty options!

Zoya Genevieve

Zoya Genevieve is from their Fall 2014 Entice Collection.
Zoya Genevieve is described as a leather grey creme by Zoya but it actually has a hint of hidden shimmer making it the odd man out in this collection. The formula is thinner than the rest of the collection and goes on streaky in the first coat. All looks great by the second easily applied coat though. Genevieve is darker than I normally go for but I don't have a polish quite like it so I'm keeping her for sure.
 
I love this weird sci-fi series from Jeff VanderMeer called The Southern Reach Trilogy! You can see what else I've been reading on Goodreads.

Zoya Claire

Zoya Claire is from their Fall 2014 Entice Collection.
Zoya Claire is a rich dark burgundy leaning toward brown that never looks black even in low light. It's a little darker than I normally go for but the formula is truly excellent and it is a very fall appropriate shade. Definitely a keeper!

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.
