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.
I ended up falling in love with Zoya Cosmo.It's definitely my favorite from this collection & had me staring at my nails all day long. They looked like they were encrusted with diamond dust, making me feel like a fancy lady on a boring Thursday afternoon. Cosmo has the best formula from this collection &applied very easily in two thin coats. I'm in love & can't wait to use Cosmo again. I'll be using it for a glitter gradient & I'm sure it will pop up in other nail art in the near future. Stunning & unique!

Sation Tira Miss-U

Sation Tira Miss-U is so gorgeous! It's very similar to Zoya Rue but Sation's formula is much better, possibly because it's more of a jelly polish than a straight up creme. Shown here in two coats that applied like a dream. I'm in love with this lavender leaning neutral!

Zoya Tomoko


Zoya Tomoko 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.
Infused 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!
Zoya Tomoko is a bit more sheer than most of the Pixie Dust polishes, shown here at 3 coats. Application is super easy though & it dries very fast. I love this champagne colored beauty, great polish for the holidays!

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.

Why My Blog Is Called Concrete & Nail Polish & OPI Done Out In Deco

People who stumble across my blog probably wonder about the curious name. It's actually very simple; Ashley & I make concrete! I snapped this spicture of her nails after we poured a few batches. OPI Done Out In Deco is her all time favorite polish (she's gone through two bottles & has two backups!) and it looks lovely even covered in concrete. I love this snapshot of my hard working sister!You can see some of our concrete work in our Etsy store, The Makerage.

Sation Lemon Pearl


Sation bottles are oval with thick glass bottoms. The new brushes are great for ladies like me that love wide brushes. You can purchase Sation's Big 3 Free polishes at their website. Sation Lemon Pearl is from their limited edition collection, California Gleamin', available now.

Sation Lemon Pearl looks like the middle of a lemon creme cookie. Shown here at 2 coats with a fantastic formula for a yellow polish. It's got a bit of shimmer but reads as a creme on the nail. I love it!

Enchanted Polish Finger Lickin' Good

Here we have one coat of Enchanted Polish Finger Lickin' Good layered over one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Jumpin' Jade. Finger Lickin' Good is a truly spectacular & unique glitter that is sadly from last year's limited edition fall collection. I'm so glad to have a bottle since it's my favorite Halloween polish!

Sation Don Wannabe

Sation Don Wannabe is from their upcoming fall collection, The Miss-terranean, available 9/9. It's a truly stunning blue creme with just a hint of purple. The formula was a bit strange for a creme; the first coat was thin & tended to drag. The second coat applied nicely though. I also noticed that adding my normal topcoat made it turn about two shades darker. Have any of you ever had that happen before? It's not a bad thing, just odd. Strangeness aside, I LOVE this color blue, definitely my new favorite blue creme!

Zoya Dhara is a vibrant blood orange with fantastic coverage. I think you could get away with just one coat if you are careful. Great formula, beautiful color, another all around winner from Zoya & a new favorite for me!
