Sation Strumming My Nails

Sation Strumming My Nails is the palest of grey creme polishes. I love the color but the formula wasn't self-leveling at all as you can see in the pictures. I'll be passing this one along.

Sation 3 Free-Dom

My pictures just don't do this polish justice. I love cream polishes in this color family & Sation 3 Free-Dom has a fantastic formula. Shown here at just two coats, the application really is superb for a pale cream polish. It's a lovely putty color & new a favorite for sure. I wore it for 5 days straight!

Sation I'm So Ogre It

You can purchase Sation's Big 3 Free polishes at their website. Sation I'm So Ogre It is from their limited edition collection, Candylandia.
Sation I'm So Ogre It is a truly gorgeous grey creme. I absolutely love grey polishes! Shown here at 2 coats. The formula on this was ok, but I did have to be a bit careful of dragging when going over an area. Nothing major though & definitely a keeper.

Pure Ice Magnetic Attraction

Here we have two coats of Pure Ice Magnetic Attraction. Good formula that covers well in just one coat. It dries super fast which is normally fantastic but I had a hard time getting the magnet positioned correctly before it was already too dry to make the stripes. I still love the idea of magnetic polishes though.

Zoya London

Zoya London is a textured glitter polish from the Zoya Pixie Dust Collection.


Here's what Zoya has to say about these polishes.
Infused with magic and wonder! The latest "must-have" nail polish finish - textured, matte and sparkling! This newly developed formula is sure to captivate with a magical sparkle and sugary finish like no other. The color experts at Zoya have created six, long-wearing stunners for the introduction of this enchanting look.

IMPORTANT Pixie Dust 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 Pixie Dust textured formula may take up to 10 minutes to dry completely matte. Once dry, the textured finish is long lasting, matte and ultra-glittery! 
I followed the above instructions, no base coat or top coat. Application is very easy as long as you stick with thin coats & make sure to let them dry completely before adding another. Otherwise you'll have some dragging like with most matte polishes. Zoya London needs two or three coats for full coverage.
 

I'm completely head over heels for this collection. I chose Zoya London for my recent trip to New York City & it was just what I needed. Wore like iron & looked fantastic even after four full days of knocking around the city. In fact these pictures were taken after I got back from trip!

Thanks for reading!

Sation Feliz Navi-Doll

Sation Feliz Navi-Doll is from their 2012 Holiday Golightly Collection. It's a beautiful icy pale grey shimmer. I love neutral pale greys & off white polishes. I think they look fresh & modern. I'm definitely keeping Feliz Navi-Doll but the formula is a bit streaky so you'll need 3 to 4 thin coats for even coverage.
I'll post a holiday look with more from this collection soon!

Zoya Reagan & Some Quick Nail Art With Zoya Kelly

Zoya Reagan is "a deep, cool fuchsia pink with subtle blue undertone and an opaque cream finish." Lovely color & you can probably get away with one coat if you're careful. That always makes for winner in my world!
The next day I decided to add do some quick nail art with the beautiful Zoya Kelly

Geometric Nail Art


Super easy and fun nails I did a couple of weeks ago. I used Color Club Wild Orchid for the base color. I added a quick dry topcoat and then waited about 15 minutes. Next I used the corner of one of my smARTNails stickers to block off the v shape. You could easily use tape instead of course. I applied one coat of Nina Ultra Pro Salsa and quickly removed the sticker. Last step was adding some dots with my dotting tools using Pure Ice Wild Thing.


I'm usually much more drawn to geometric as opposed to floral patterns. Since this was so easy, I'll be doing variations very soon!

Color Club Wild Orchid & My Second Dotting Tool Nail Art Attempt


This is 2 coats of Color Club Wild Orchid from the Untamed Luxury Collection. It didn't get much attention but I really love this gorgeous grey with soft, subtle silver microshimmer. The base color is a lot like China Glaze Recycle which is still one of my top 5 favorite polishes. Nice formula too.

I tired my dotting tools again, but still haven't quite gotten the results I want. I just need to play with them more often. I used Nina Ultra Pro Salsa and Essie Mint Candy Apple.


I still can't believe how many of you responded in comments and emails to my post about the OMG! I was truly shocked at the frenzy I created. I received over 100 inquiries so I wasn't able to respond to everyone individually or I wouldn't have been able to eat or sleep for the past couple of days. They sold out super fast! I'm just sorry I couldn't find enough for everyone.
I'll be adding more polishes soon, no OMG, but I'll add more 2NITE and more from the Kaleidoscope collection.
If you live in the U.S. please just order them through my store, Medusa's Threads. If you live elsewhere, check the store to see what's in stock and then send me an email. I hope to add paypal and an option for international buyers directly to the store very soon.

Zoya Caitlin & A Water Marble


This is 2 coats of Zoya Caitlin. Easy application and an unexpected new favorite! It's a much lighter version of Zoya Kelly, which I'm wearing on my pinkie. Caitlin is a purplish grey creme that works great a s a neutral for me. I could wear it with a brown outfit since there is so much purple which I wouldn't normally do with a grey. Believe people when they say you need this one. It's unique and doesn't have any dupes that I can find.

The next night a did a quick water marble with the 2 colors. I love water marbling!
