Zoya Luna I was not super thrilled with the last two Zoya polishes I tried and I felt it was time to take a moment and go back a minute to one that I had worn before and enjoyed. Zoya Luna is a silver glitter suspended in a light grey sheer base. It dries matte but the glitter doesn't lose it's luster so even the weakest light source will make it sparkle. It took me a minute ... or ten to realize that the white you see on the side of my nails in the picture is not me forgetti

Sinful Colors After Dark Sinful Colors After Dark is a charcoal grey textured matte glitter that is far from boring. The texture is similar to that of the Zoya Pixie Dust line. The formula is smooth and easy to apply. I used two coats for opacity allowing about five minutes between layers. I found that After Dark dried fast as a glitter heavy polish often does. It looks much more textured than it actually feels. I really love the moody asphalt color of this polish. It remind
China Glaze I Soiree I Didn't Do It
China Glaze I Soiree I Didn't Do It I knew exactly what I was looking for when I went looking through my China Glaze stash but I got derailed. I was going for something a bit neutral, soft... and we have a teal glitter bomb! China Glaze I Soiree I Didn't Do It just jumped right out of my collection and demanded I wear it. I was not about to argue. I purchased this beauty last winter as part of the Holiday 2015 Cheers collection and have only worn it once before. Green teal he
Essie Shall We Chalet? I wanted red... picking one was a bit daunting. Forget Fifty Shades of Grey, we have Fifty Shades Of Red going on at Nailvanna land. Essie Shall We Chalet? was the winner from the line up of reds I was considering for today's manicure because it leans blue. There is nothing more classic than glossy red nails and it can be the perfect finishing touch to just about any outfit. I had someone tell me once that they did not wear red polish because it alway
I Pink Its A Keeper!
OPI Can't Hear Myself Pink! It feels like it's been a while since I reached for a pink polish and I'm definitely in the mood for it. OPI Can't Hear Myself Pink! looks full of shimmer with a golden tone in the bottle that I hoped would translate to my nails. I love wearing nail polish with depth. The formula is a bit thin but overall it has a great consistency that's very smooth and easy to control. The first coat went on pretty sheer, and I realized right away this may take a
Revlon Showtime You would think that with the amount of nail polish I own I could walk past a bottle of polish and not get all giddy. If it was a test on self control I would have failed but since it's about having all the pretty nail polish I win. Revlon Showtime is a beautiful rich glittery jewel tone purple. I had no issues with application but the Gel Envy Line brushes are double brushes. When I first tried Gel Envy I was not the biggest fan of the new thicker brushes but
Feeling the Heat!
Sally Hansen Lava One of my girlfriends was telling me to check out her Instagram because she posted the cutest picture ever for throw back Thursday and that got me thinking. I have a few older polishes that to this day are on my favorites list and probably will remain there until the end of time. Sally Hansen Lava is certainly one of them. It's one of the prettiest duo chromes I have come across and I never get tired of wearing. It's a foil that shifts from orange to pink t
Sinful Colors Angelik I've been going back and forth lately between dark, vampy nails and fun, light and girly. Sinful Colors Angelik was an easy pick for today's manicure, it looked like it would be fun. It's a matte formula and not textured like the last two I wore so I was a bit worried that application may be questionable. Some matte formulas are a real pain unless you have a very steady hand because as they dry they show exactly where your brush has been. As your nails d
Orly Glowstick My bottle of Orly Glowstick glowed in the bottle and I really hopped that it would be just as bright on my nails. I was not taking any chances and made sure to apply a white base coat before starting to paint my nails.The formula was easy to control and I had no issues with the application. I was a touch worried that it would be a bit chalky as a neon can sometimes be but there was no trace of that. I applied three thin coats and the results were smooth and str

Finger Paints Fathom Blue My breath caught a little when, on my last trip into Sally's I came across Finger Paints Fathom Blue. It's a limited edition for fall and as far as I have heard, is only available until October. In the bottle it looked like a duo chrome with a blue and purple shimmer. I knew I had to have it the moment I saw it. I was positively giddy like I just won the lottery with this find. It was super hot and humid when I purchased it, so I decided I would wait
