Zoya Daisy

Zoya Daisy is from their Spring 2015 Delight collection.
Zoya Daisy looks like lemon drop candy with turquoise micro-shimmer. I love it! Shown here at two coats; it could probably use a third but the formula is great, especially for a yellow polish.
Thanks for reading!

OPI Midnight In Moscow

OPI Midnight In Moscow was originally part of their Fall 2007 Russian collection but has since been added to their Classics line with good reason!

OPI Midnight In Moscow is so fun; it looks like liquid vampires! It's a sheer charcoal jam-packed with brick red micro shimmer. The first coat is streaky but as soon as you start the second coat everything turns rich and glossy and magical. I love OPI's wide brushes too so this one really was a pleasure to apply. I don't usually go for dark, vampy colors but Midnight In Moscow is simply fantastic!
In artificial light so you can see the shimmer.
Thanks for reading!

Revlon Parfumerie Fresh Linen

Revlon Parfumerie Fresh Linen is part of their currently available Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel collection.

Blech! Revlon Parfumerie Fresh Linen is just terrible all around in my opinion. Shown here at 3 coats, the formula is extremely streaky and really needed a fourth coat but I already hated the polish so I stopped. The polish is full of brushstrokes and the color seemed like something that was once white but had turned yellow from sun exposure; not a pretty color or finish in other words. The brush handle is a very stubby ball that I found awkward to use. And then there is the issue of scent. I'm not really into perfume so maybe this just will never be my thing but it smelled like nail polish mixed with a perfumey version of dryer sheets. The smell lingered into the second day of wear and was sometimes unpleasant, especially when I was eating a meal. Blech!

Zoya Rayne

Zoya Rayne is from their Spring 2015 Delight collection.
Zoya Rayne is a medium toned icy blue packed with turquoise micro shimmer. Perfect for snowy, icy cold days or sunny spring weather! Rayne is pretty streaky so I definitely needed 3 coats. Unlike anything else in my collection and definitely a keeper!

Revlon Spice It Up

Revlon Spice It Up is from their 2011 Spice It Up collection. I don't usually go for vampy polishes but there's just something about this one that I really love. Revlon Spice It Up is a deep brick red with copper micro shimmer that applies easily in 2 coats. Gorgeous!

Milani Metallic Mango

Milani Metallic brushstrokes is shown here at 2 coats. It's too full of brushstrokes to be a keeper for me; I don't want to mess with brushstrokey polish unless it will look super metallic and chrome like when I'm done. Perfectly fine polish but just nor for me.

Milani Deep Thoughts

Milani Deep Thoughts is from Spring of 2012. It's shown here at 2 very easily applied coats despite the super skinny brush which is just not to my liking. Deep Thoughts is a blackened purple shimmer, very pretty but just not my style.

Thanks for reading!

Milani Blackberry Baby

Milani Blackberry Baby is a blackened burgundy shimmer polish shown here at 2 coats. IT has excellent coverage and you could almost get away worth just one but you have to be very careful of brushstrokes.I really don't like Milani's super skinny brush but that is just a matter of personal preference. Blackberry Baby is a very pretty polish but the brushstrokey finish feels a bit dated to me and it's just not my style.

Thanks for reading!

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!

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!

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.
