Zoya Tomoko Zoya Tomoko is a texture matte Pixie Dust. I have found that the Zoya Pixie Dust line has really changed the way I feel about textured polishes. I really did not enjoy the gritty feel that a textured polish has but now it does not even phase me. I believed that it would chip faster than a glossy polish and expected less sparkles. I was also picturing in my head all of the things I would probably snag my nails on because of the texture. None of those things are
KB Shimmer Along For The Tide KB Shimmer Along For The Tide is a vivid royal blue from the Summer 2016 collection. In some lighting it leans purple and in the sun it glitter as pretty as sapphires. The holo shimmer really makes this polish pop. The formula is smooth and easy to apply, just like all of the other polishes that I have tried so far from this collection. I'm wearing two coats with top coat in the picture. Something about this blue reminds me very much of the br
a England Katyusha A England Katyusha is from the Russian Soul collection. A darker holographic silver that has a great formula. It has a great consistency too but it does show the brush strokes a touch just not to the point where it takes away from the beauty of the polish. The opacity I would imagine will lend itself well to stamping but I have not played around with it in that capacity yet. Katyusha is a Russian wartime song about a girl longing for her beloved but it's a
Fishing For Complements?
KB Shimmer Don't Play Koi KB Shimmer Don't Play Koi is the quieter twin of the two crelly polishes from the Summer 2016 collection. I'll be honest, I tried Neon Me first because I thought I would enjoy the colors in Don't Play Koi more but I seem to have found my summer vibe because I'm just loving the neon nails including Neon Me. Don't Play Koi is an absolutely lovely crelly formula as well and it fits very nicely into the collection. I'm glad I have finally made my way
I Pink I Like It!
Zoya Harper Zoya Harper has been in my rotation since it was released in the summer of 2014. It's easy on the eyes, a pretty bubble gum pink that has generous helpings of iridescent glitter and golden shimmer that keeps it looking fresh. The formula is a Jelly that is easy to apply and manipulate but removal is a little on the tough side since all that glitter and shimmer like to adhere to your nails thoroughly. A bit of patience and a generous amount of acetone has never
Blinded By The Bright!
China Glaze Pool Party China Glaze Pool Party is so incredibly bright that my nails seem to be glowing. I had more compliments on this color than I expected and I think that is because no one can miss my nails when the color is this intense. I loved every second of wearing Pool Party! Photographing it was another story. Neon is very hard to capture and show true color and this baby was no exception. It's brighter and a touch more pink than the picture shows. If anything my
Playing With The Buoys!
KB Shimmer Playing With The Buoys KB Shimmer Playing With The Buoys! This is described as a soft, pastel sage with mint hues and blue undertones by it's creator. My skin tone just happens to pull the blues out more as you can see in the picture. I'm quite alright with that no surprise there. Think minty aqua. I found the formula a touch on the thicker side of the scale but it was easily managed. I applied two coats and top coat before taking the picture. I love how clean an
Sinful Colors Real Regal Sinful Colors Real Regal is one of those colors that drew me like a moth to a flame. It's a brilliant fuchsia with hot pink flakes that light this polish up from the inside out. I have to admit I am very impressed with most of the Kylie Jenner collection. Sinful Colors was not a brand that I had collected and only had a few colors before the Kylie Jenner collection came out. I have picked up just about every one I have come across in that collectio
It must have been an Arabian Night!
KB Shimmer One Night Sand KB Shimmer One Night Sand is a rose gold that is nothing short of amazing. This is from the new Summer 2016 collection. I promised myself that I would wait to do the glitter last and just like Abu in Aladdin as soon as I took a peak at all of that beautiful gold I became obsessed and before I knew it I was covered in the rich beautiful shining gold polish from KB Shimmer. I painted my nails with One Night Sand in the evening and just loved the formu
Lightly Roasted Marshmallow
Essie Marshmallow Essie Marshmallow is a creamy white neutral. It's described by essie.com as a cloudy sheer white,perfect for a french manicure. I don't think this would be very french manicure friendly because it lacks the opacity required for tips and it is streaky. The first coat I applied was not pretty, but the second coat started to show promise. Glad I added a third because that evened everything out nicely and the coverage was perfect. Not a streak in sight and th
