Zoya Posh

Zoya Posh is from their Matte Velvet collection!
Zoya Posh is a truly sexy matte red polish with a hint of shimmer. The whole matte velvet collection is really stunning and I've gotten so many compliments every time I wear any of them. Posh is super pigmented so a careful polisher might be able to get away with just one coat. It's shown here at 2 coats that applied nicely and dried super fast. Zoya calls Posh a metallic but I think velvet is really the correct descriptor. So gorgeous and a definite keeper! This one wore very well for a matte polish and still looked perfect after 2 and half days. I took lots of pictures of this one since it's a new favorite and perfect for Halloween!
 
 
My talented sister Alisa put together this spooky dollhouse Halloween scene in my medicine cabinet for my recent pumpkin carving party. She found some amazing pieces online like the bunny and witch Halloween masks on the left! She also made some of the furniture by hand and I love thing whole thing so much!

Thanks for reading!

Zoya Noir (Press Sample Version)

Looks like Zoya's press samples for their Ultra Pixie Dust collection had some issues so this post isn't representative of what you can purchase at Ulta or from Zoya. For an accurate representation please check out this great post from Lavish Layerings!
Zoya Noir is from their Ultra Pixie Dust Collection.

Zoya Noir is a deep rich plum Pixie Dust polish with red hex glitter. My bottle didn't look much like a Pixie Dust simply because it doesn't seem to have nearly enough of the Pixie Dust particles, allowing the jelly base color to show quite a bit and causing a strange finish that never dried matte. I love the color and I might have to go purchase a retail version of Noir since I love Pixie Dust polishes so much. I think mine will be great for nail art and it looks great with a top coat as pictured in the last photo.

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!

Zoya India

Zoya India is from their Fall 2014 Ignite Collection.
Zoya India applies like liquid velvet and barely needed a second coat. This color isn't really my style but it will look great on my toes this fall and winter. This color is so rich that I can also see myself reaching for it for Christmas themed nail art.
I love to read! If you do too please find me 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!

Sally Hansen Cinny Sweet

Sally Hansen Cinny Sweet is from their Sugar Shimmer collection. The formula is excellent, shown here at 2 easily applied coats that dry quickly. Cinny Sweet isn't quite as gorgeous as my beloved Zoya Pixie Dusts (no one does micro-shimmer like Zoya!) but it's still very beautiful & unique. Really gorgeous deep berry color that I think will be flattering on most everyone. I'll be trying out Mint Tint from the same collection later tonight!

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 Napoleon Dyna-Matte



I'm a huge fan of Sation polishes & their new fall collection, The Miss-terranean, is lovely.
Sation Napoleon Dyna-Matte is not matte which is mildly annoying because of the name but it's a great polish nonetheless. Beautiful red creme with a superb formula & brush that covers in just one coat. I love one coat wonders!

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.

French Manicure Inspired By Drusilla

I've finally started watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel. I knew I would love the shows, but I had just never gotten around to them. Here we have some simple nails inspired by the character of Drusilla, just in time for Halloween too. She always wore french manicures with various shade of red for the base color. You can see a version here.
For my Drusilla nails I used Zoya Livingston & topped them off with Zoya Gaia. Not a look I would normally wear, but fun for Halloween!
