Sation Most Likely To Not Chip


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 has just released a limited edition collection called Class of Sation, available now.

Sation Most Likely To Not Chip is a frosty jade green polish that's opaque in two easily applied coats. You do need to be careful of brush strokes but it's worth it for this pretty glowing finish that's perfect for spring & summer.

Zoya Tracie In The Sun & The Shade


Zoya Tracie is a faded, yellow-toned pistachio green with delicate silvery shimmer for a frosted pearl finish."  Nice formula that only needs 2 coats. I love the color but I'm not a huge fan of the frost finish so I'll be passing this one along to a friend.

Sation Silver Frost & Suede Shoes

Sation recently updated their brand & bottles & I have a few of their new polishes to show you this week. The bottles are oval with thick glass bottoms. The new brushes are great for ladies like me that love wide brushes. The formula on all the ones I've tried is excellent. Sation can now be purchased here.

First we have Silver Frost, which is exactly what it sounds like. I know frosts aren't the most popular of finishes right now, but I do like this one. It looks just like pulled sugar! This is 3 coats & you don't have to worry much about brushstrokes with this frost because of the excellent formula & wide brush.

Next we have Suede Shoes. I love blue polishes & this is no exception. Suede Shoes looks almost exactly like the main color of current Pepsi cans. Excellent formula that covers in 2 or 3 easily applied coats. Click the pictures taken in the shade to see the pretty shimmer.
 
Next up I'll have my first Valentine's Day manicure of the year featuring these two pretty polishes. Thanks for reading!

French Tip Dip Riviera Moon

 
I won a French Tip Dip Kit a while back and ended up really liking their white polish and their topcoat. I contacted them to see if they might be interested in sending me some of their other polish colors to try out and French Tip Dip Riviera Moon is the second one I tried.

I'm not really a big sheer fan, but I love this one even more than yesterday's Cannes! Once again, the formula was terrific and you can get this look with just 2 coats. Hard to capture this one! Riviera Moon is an excellent name for this lovely polish. It's a bit frosty and has more of an off white tinted base as opposed to the clear base in Cannes. Both Cannes & Riviera Moon are polishes that really shine in low light. Constantly flashing a subtle glow of color.
My boyfriend Will loves this one too. Who would have thought that I would love 2 sheers in a row! This is why I love to get samples and win prizes in giveaways. I end up trying things I would never purchase & end up broadening my horizons!

Tomorrow I'll show both Cannes & Riviera Moon layered over a few colors.

Thanks for reading!

Color Club Pretty In Platinum


This is 2 coats of the lovely Color Club Pretty In Platinum. I really love this slightly frosty, super pale gray/silver! I think its very flattering and looks great with most of my wardrobe. It reminds me of a silver Silly Putty Egg I had at some point.

Thanks for reading!

N.Y.C. Cashmere Cream


This is 4 coats. Lots of brushstrokes and cuticle drag. It's a lovely color but I don't like the frost finish or the formula on this one.

Thanks for reading!

A Few BB Coutures

I won these along with Poison Ivy as part of an Earth Day BB Couture set. I love Poison Ivy, but unfortunately, I don't like any of these 3 brushstrokey frosts. I used 3 coats for each of them.

First we have BB Couture Espresso Dream which I would describe as a frosty, metallic tan.

There was a pretty little butterfly flitting around my garden while taking pictures of this one.


Next we have BB Couture Caramel Carma, a frosty metallic caramel.


Finally we have BB Couture Autumn Sunset, a rusty brown, frosty metallic. I thought I would like this one the most but it made me feel like a scary, mean, old lady! The kind that would play slots all day in Vegas with her hair all done up while she chain smokes menthols.

I put all three of them on my pinky and I like them together.

The formula was nice and BB Couture still has more colors that I want to own than any other company. These three frosty browns just don't do it for me though.

Thanks for reading!

China Glaze New Day


I picked this up in our favorite crazy nail polish store (one for me and one for our giveaway). China Glaze New Day is a dusty with a silver cap but I can't find it anywhere on the China Glaze website. Anybody know more about this one? I've been looking for cornflower blues lately so I was immediately drawn to this one when I saw it in the dusty bin. I would call it a cornflower blue frost. The formula was a little difficult and this is three coats.

Have you entered all three of our giveaways yet? Ashley & I worked hard to make the instructions clear and easy to follow. What do you think of the form? We went with this method for a lot of reasons. It protects you email address and it automatically puts each entry into a google spreadsheet that I can sort anyway I wish. This makes finding cheaters much simpler and also greatly simplifies using a random number generator to pick the winner since each entry is already in a numbered spreadsheet.

Anyway, thanks for reading!

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Blue Streak & Jumpin Jade

Here are a couple of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri pictures that I've been meaning to post for ages. I personally LOVE everything about the Insta-Dri line. I have very wide nails, so the extra wide brush is perfect for me. I know a lot of you ladies can't stand the brush though. I also love the formula on the two I have tried so far. One coat for both of these colors. One coat and a super fast dry time is impossible to beat in my world. I recently took the RBL Spongebob Collection off of my want list because I just can't stand the thought of doing 5 coats!

I really want more of this particular Sally Hansen line. Lickety-Split Lime was at the top of my lemming list over the summer, but I never found it here in Tulsa. What do you ladies think of this line? Are there any colors you love in spite of the brush?

First up is Blue Streak. For some reason, I never end up liking turquoise on my nails. It's one of my favorite colors, so I really have no explanation for this quirk of mine. The color is lovely and I think it might work well for Konad. (The bubbles were from some random base coat I was trying.)



Next we have Jumpin Jade. I LOVE this one! Not the most unique color in the polish world any more, but super gorgeous just the same. I tried Nail Tech Foundation II as a matte topcoat on my ring finger but wasn't happy with the result. It totally erased the shimmer and made my nail look like green rubber.

L.A. Colors Intense Collection Part 3

I had a really difficult time getting a proper color of this gorgeous polish! I would call it purple with hot pink frost. Is there such a thing? Anyway it is really beautiful. I took pictures in all sorts of light to try and capture the hot pink frost. The first picture is is what it looks like most of the time.The last polish in this collection is a light green shimmer that is very sheer. You'll have to bug Ashley for the swatch of this one since I still have some staining on my tips.





I need your advice on how to ship polish to Australia! I finally figured out that the person I am supposed to be sending polishes to for the holiday swap lives down under and I am at a loss as to how to do this without breaking my budget. Any advice will be much appreciated!!! I never got the email about who my person was because I mistyped my email when signing into the swap. I find this a little troubling because this means that people can just enter in a fake email address and get free stuff right? It seems like they would want to verify the email address before allowing someone to participate.

Thanks for reading.

Zoya Pasha


I got this one from the Zoya twitter sale. I loved the pictures I saw online, but when I did a quick swatch on one finger, I was worried it would clash with my skin tone. I finally got around to doing a full manicure and boy was I wrong! This will be one of my new go to colors. Super easy to apply and goes with most outfits. I finally decided the color looks like the iced coffee that sits in the little bowls of your ice. Zoya Pasha is a lovely polish!
