OPI Heart Throb

I don't have very many OPI polishes but I really love their wide brush. OPI Heart Throb is one of those colors I would never pick out for myself (so pink!) but I ended up loving. Shown here at 3 easily applied coats, Heart Throb is a nicely balanced classic pink jelly polish that will look great on a wide range of skin tones. Nothing new but still gorgeous! I think this color actually works great with all of the cold weather we've been having too.

Revlon Glimmer Gloss Stripes

My friend Casey gave me these two fantastic Revlon Glimmer Gloss polishes & they look great together. I started with a base of Revlon Banana Blaze & then added freehand stripes of Revlon Cherry Fizz. My nails looked like candy!

Zoya Muse

Zoya Muse is from their Summer 2014 Bubbly collection.

This is a tricky polish review! Zoya Muse is a blue raspberry jelly with Zoya's lovely gold microshimmer & pastel cellophane glitter featured in Monet, just a smaller size. I had a lot of trouble applying this one. Muse is very pigmented so only needed 2 coats, but you absolutely can't go over a wet area without dragging, in this case pulling off all of the polish you just applied. It wasn't self-leveling either. I remember asking Will to help accomplish a minor task saying, "I don't want to mess up my nails because I never want to use this polish again."

But then I caught a glimpse of my hands in the mirror later that night couldn't help but notice how gorgeous this polish is. Over the next few days I decided that Zoya Muse is just way too pretty to give up on after one try. I've never seen anything else quite like Zoya Muse & it just looked great on me.  She's a keeper even after a bad first go round!

Zoya Jesy

Zoya Jesy is from their Summer 2014 Bubbly collection.

Zoya describes Jesy as "a full coverage, fiery coral orange metallic holo featuring the exclusive liquid-metal holographic jelly formula" & I agree. I love the way Zoya does gold & silver micro shimmer & it looks particularly stunning in a jelly formula. As for the holographic sparkles, they are the same lovely pastel cellophane glitter featured in Monet, just in a smaller size.  Zoya Jesy is shown here at 3 easily applied thin coats. Great color for summer!

Revlon Banana Blaze

Yellow jelly polishes are so strange looking but I love them anyway! This is 3 easily applied coats of Revlon Banana Blaze. It's a sunshine yellow jelly with sparse silver glitter. I know it doesn't look great with my skin tone but Banana Blaze is still a keeper since it's so unique! I'll have to try layering it over some other colors some day.

Zoya Binx


Zoya Binx is from their Summer 2014 Bubbly collection.
Zoya describes Binx as "a spicy orchid purple dappled with gold metallic & holo sparkles" but I would definitely describe this one as a well balanced, medium toned pink jelly. I love the way Zoya does gold & silver micro shimmer & it looks particularly stunning in a jelly formula. As for the holographic sparkles, they are the same lovely pastel cellophane glitter featured in Monet, just in a smaller size.  Taken together it's a gorgeous combination that makes for a very unique polish. Binx would look great with just about any skin tone too!
I used 2 coats here & tried a third on on nail to see if I could get closer to the color seen in promo pics. I couldn't tell a difference so I just left it at two coats. Still a beautiful polish with an easy to work with formula.

Revlon Cherry Fizz

My friend Casey kindly gave me one of her cherished bottles of Revlon Cherry Fizz recently & I love it! Cherry Fizz is a dark hot pink jelly with sparse hot pink shimmer that's even prettier in person. It's got a great formula shown here at 5 coats. Perfect for spring & summer, thanks Casey!

Elizabeth Arden Seaview Crimson


I picked up Elizabeth Arden Seaview Crimson while browsing the shelves of a tiny beauty supply store. I'm a sucker for square & rectangle bottles. I wish all polish came in non round bottles actually. They fit together so nicely when storing.
Seaview Crimson is not unique but it has a terrific streak free formula that covers in just 2 coats. It's a lovely true red jelly polish. Definitely a keeper for me! If you'd like a bottle for yourself, I've just opened a little storefront with various brand new polishes I've picked up over the years. Sometimes I see a closeout deal & I just can't help myself!
I'm a voracious reader! You can follow me on Goodreads!

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!

SoFlaJo Purple Reign Of Terror

SoFlaJo is an indie brand that makes lots of interesting polishes. Purple Reign of Terror is from her 2012 Terrified Halloween collection. It's a very dark purple jelly with sparse holographic glitter. Very streaky& sheer at first. Shown here at 3 coats. I think it would have been prettier with more holographic particles, but it's too dark for me anyway. I'll pass this along to friend that likes vampy polishes.

Zoya Payton



Zoya Payton is part of Zoya Zenith, their 2013 Winter Holiday collection.
Zoya Payton is a deep dark purple jelly polish packed with scattered holographic glitter. Nice formula that covers in just two coats. It's a bit darker than I normally like but it's such a truly beautiful polish that I'm keeping it for sure!

Zoya Pepper

Zoya Pepper is from their Fall 2013 Cashmere collection.Pepper was originally designed for Peter Som AW/13. It's a nice red velvet cake colored polish that applies nicely in 2 coats. It's very opaque but I'd still cal this one a jelly polish. If purchasing in person, be aware that it dries about 2 shades darker than bottle color.I don't have anything quite like it in my stash so I'm keeping it for sure.

Rimmel Pink Bliss

Rimmel Pink Bliss is a very pretty polish shown here at three coats. I really could have used a fourth. While I love Rimmel's square bottle & pale pink jelly polishes like this, I have versions with better formulas.
