I'm a huge fan of Zoya's classic Pixie Dust polishes. That's probably an understatement. If I was forced to choose my top 5 favorite collections of all time, all three of the Classic Pixie Dust collections would be in that list. I wasn't sure if I would love these new Magical Pixie dusts quite as much though. I love holographic polishes but I've never been a huge fan of chunky glitters.
I ended up falling in love with Zoya Cosmo.It's definitely my favorite from this collection & had me staring at my nails all day long. They looked like they were encrusted with diamond dust, making me feel like a fancy lady on a boring Thursday afternoon. Cosmo has the best formula from this collection &applied very easily in two thin coats. I'm in love & can't wait to use Cosmo again. I'll be using it for a glitter gradient & I'm sure it will pop up in other nail art in the near future. Stunning & unique!

Zoya Seraphina


Zoya Seraphina is part of Zoya Zenith, their 2013 Winter Holiday collection.

Zoya Seraphina is shown here at three thin coats but I could have used a fourth. I love the color of this polish, a pale grey base with tons of silver micro shimmer, but the formula isn't great. It took forever to dry & I had some dragging issues. I'll pass this along to a friend who might like it more than me.

Thanks for reading!

You can purchase Sation's Big 3 Free polishes at their website. Sation Paint Some Sugar On Me is from their limited edition collection, Candylandia.

Sation Paint Some Sugar On Me is a pretty navy jelly with silver shimmer. Nice formula that covers in two coats.

Layering With Zoya Trixie & Electra

I liked the accent nail from my last manicure so much that I decided to do all of my nails! 2 coats of Zoya Trixie with one coat of Zoya Electra on top. Not for everyday but fun every now & then.
Here's a quick shot of Electra over black.

Accent Nail With Zoya Trixie & Electra

I decided to try Zoya Electra as an accent nail over my previous Zoya Trixie manicure. Zoya Electra is small silver holographic bar glitter in a clear base. Shown here at just one coat over Trixie. Most bar glitters bug me & just look hairy but I like Zoya's use of smaller bar glitters, like Rina, Twila, & Kissy.

Zoya Trixie

Zoya Trixie is one of the first polishes we featured on our blog & I felt like it time to take some new pictures & show her off again. Shown here at two coats is a lovely silver metallic. I love silver polishes & this one is no exception!

Layering With Sation Tall Dark & Has Some & Stirring Silver

This is one coat of Sation Stirring Silver topped with a gradient of Sation Tall Dark & Has Some. It's a very unique glitter with medium black circles, tiny turquoise glitter, & large turquoise shards in a clear base. So cool & similar in type to a favorite from last year, Sation Ego Friendly. I love this combination!

Sation Silver Frost & Suede Shoes

Sation recently updated their brand & bottles & I have a few of their new polishes to show you this week. The bottles are oval with thick glass bottoms. The new brushes are great for ladies like me that love wide brushes. The formula on all the ones I've tried is excellent. Sation can now be purchased here.

First we have Silver Frost, which is exactly what it sounds like. I know frosts aren't the most popular of finishes right now, but I do like this one. It looks just like pulled sugar! This is 3 coats & you don't have to worry much about brushstrokes with this frost because of the excellent formula & wide brush.

Next we have Suede Shoes. I love blue polishes & this is no exception. Suede Shoes looks almost exactly like the main color of current Pepsi cans. Excellent formula that covers in 2 or 3 easily applied coats. Click the pictures taken in the shade to see the pretty shimmer.
 
Next up I'll have my first Valentine's Day manicure of the year featuring these two pretty polishes. Thanks for reading!

Milani HD & One OF My Favorite Manicures Of This Year


I  won my first Milani polishes from Maria of Nails Made Simple. Be sure and check out her great blog if you haven't already done so.
This is 2 coats of Milani HD. I love holos! Nice formula and all around gorgeous polish. 
The next day I used 2 strips of tape to form a triangle and then filled it in with one coat of Zoya Faye, one of my favorite polishes. I love the effect! Faye is just sheer enough that the holo effect still shows through.

China Glaze Millennium



I've posted about this polish before but I think it deserves another look. It's one of my all time favorites for many reasons. One coat if you're careful & it dries super fast! If you need to get out the door fast China Glaze Millennium is an excellent choice!! This is one coat without topcoat which it doesn't need. You have to avoid brushstrokes but a little practice makes application very easy.

Thanks for reading!

Ashley's Nails: Zoya Trixie & Nail Polish Paris Crackle 21

 
This is 2 coats of Zoya Trixie with a coat of Nail Polish Paris Crackle #21 on top. Gorgeous!!

My sister, Ashley loves crackle polish over shimmers. She usually prefers creme polish over most everything else, but something about this combination appeals to her. I agree that it's my favorite way to wear crackles too. I know many of you are over the crackle trend but I love them for days when I need a fast fix for a chipped manicure. I just throw a coat of crackle on top and the problem is solved!
Ashley has the coolest jewelry!


Thanks for taking pictures and Ashley & thank you all for reading!
