Sally Hansen Work Of Tart

Sally Hansen Work of Tart is from their Sugar Shimmer collection. I love textured polishes and this one looks so gorgeous in the bottle. Unfortunately the formula is pretty terrible. Shown here at 3 coats, it was very streaky at two and still not quite even after the third coat. I could live with that but it also took over two and a half hours to dry! The color and finish are drop dead gorgeous though, dusty faded blue raspberry with tons of gold micro shimmer. Work of Tart has a contemptible formula but is just too pretty and unique to pass along. Maybe I can layer one coat of it over a similar base color next time.
 Keep up with what I'm reading on Goodreads!
 

Thanks for reading!

Zoya Teigen And India: A Nail Art Comparison

I've only done a handful of comparisons so far but I like this on the nail style. Here we have Zoya Teigen and India. I started with a base of Teigen and then added the chevron french tip in Zoya India. Both lovely colors!
 I am a voracious reader. You can check out what I'm reading on my Goodreads profile!

Zoya Sansa

Zoya Sansa is from their Fall 2014 Ignite Collection.
Zoya Sansa is a very dark purple packed with copper microshimmer. The copper makes it lean brown in many lighting situations but it's a gorgeous rich purple in the the sunlight. Will loves it but it's a bit too dark for my tastes. Sansa is very pigmented and only needs 2 coats but make sure you don't go over an area more than once to avoid dragging.

Interlocking Dots Nail Art With Zoya

I tried my best to find the person who first did this design but my google skills were defeated. I found this post from January of 2012 saying that they'd seen the design before but I couldn't find anything older than that. I like to give credit where credit is due so if any of you know where this design originated please let me know!
While this design looks very complicated, it's actually very easy to pull off! I started with a base of Zoya India and then used Zoya Jules to complete the rest of the steps as shown in the post linked above. I love the finished manicure and might try this design again next spring with some fun pastels.

Zoya Remy

Zoya Remy is from their Fall 2014 Ignite Collection.
Go get Zoya Remy right now. Just do it. It's one of the most amazing polishes in my collection and a must have for any blue polish lover. Shown here at ONE COAT, Remy was like applying liquid velvet to my nails. I still can't believe I got all of this gorgeous color and depth in just one coat. Deep rich blue absolutely loaded with gold and copper micro shimmer. Zoya Remy is simply stunning and just might be my favorite polish of the year!

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 Autumn

Zoya Autumn is from their Fall 2014 Ignite Collection.
Zoya Autumn is the copper polish of my dreams! No other company does micro shimmer as well as Zoya and this copper polish loaded with gold flecks is a real show stopper. The first coat is patchy but everything looks magically perfect by the second coat. Truly gorgeous!

Nicole By OPI Better After Dark

Nicole By OPI Better After Dark was part of a promotion early this year involving Dove Chocolate. They gave away 25,000 sets of two polishes & a coupon for chocolate. I was a lucky winner! This is the first Nicole By OPI polish I've ever tried. The bottle is very oddly shaped & so difficult to hold for pictures without looking awkward! I love the wide brush though. Better After Dark is a lovely medium brown loaded with red shimmer. It was very sheer at first but looked great after just two coats that practically applied themselves thanks to the combination of the wide brush & excellent formula. Not the most exciting color in the world but definitely a keeper!

Zoya Rebel



Zoya Rebel is from their Awaken collection for Spring 2014.

I love blue polishes and Zoya Rebel is no exception. It's a nice medium blue with just a hint of green packed with silver microshimmer. I ended up wearing this one for a week which is almost unheard of in my world! Shown here at 2 coats, be sure to wait an few minutes between coats to avoid dragging.
