Zoya Urban Grunge Collection, Fall/Winter 2016-17

PRESS SAMPLES

Hey Dolls!

I received the new Zoya Urban Grunge Collection last week (on my birthday morning!)  I have the Metallic Holo's to show you today.  I will have the One Coat Creams to show you next week.

I was all kinds of excited for this collection!  It was Alicia that stole my heart with some of the promo pictures that I saw.  I have all the heart eyes for any polish with scattered holos and there are three stunning ones in this collection.  Before I received them I wished that they were all holo's, but the shimmery metallics are amazing as well!

Let me start by saying that my pictures don't even come close to doing these polishes justice.  They are way more beautiful in real life!

First up is Alicia, my fave of the collection.  She is a dreamy, silvery-white holo.  The holo didn't show up under my lamps, but in the sunlight there were rainbows all over my nails!  This was the only one in the collection that needed three coats.  Three coats is normally a pain in the butt to do, but this formula is so easy to work with that it wasn't a chore at all. 



I tried to get that rainbow to show up for you under my lights.  You can see it a little.


Finley is a stunning purple scattered holo.  The formula is fantastic, two of the smoothest coats ever.  I wore this for six days and only had minor tip wear.  It also removes like a cream polish, I love that about holo's.  The scattered holo really shows up in the sunlight.



 You can see a tiny bit under my lamp lights with this angle.  As soon as it catches the sun, the holo comes out to play!


Merida is an emerald green scattered holo.  The formula is perfect, just like Finley's.  I'm not usually a fan of green, but when you throw in some scattered holo's, I am all over it!



Tory is a liquid pewter with a metallic finish.  The formula is so buttery and perfect, you can almost get away with one coat, but I used two for good measure.



Britta is a berry metallic with the most amazing fuchsia flash!  This one didn't catch my eye in the bottle, but once on the nail it is gorgeous.  She's definitely my fave of the metallics.  It has an amazing formula, two easy coats.



Ash is a cherry metallic with red and gold shimmer.  The formula is awesome yet again, two of the easiest coats for perfect depth and opacity.



Which one is your fave?  Will you be picking any of these beauties up?  You can go to the Zoya website to order.

Have a great day loves!

Sally Hansen Fall Collection 2016, Complete Salon Manicure

PRESS SAMPLES

Hey Dolls!

I have a six-piece Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure collection to share with you today.  This Fall Collection for 2016 is labeled as The Vintage Trend Comeback.  Four of the six shades are new to the core Sally Hansen polishes.  There are some beautiful Autumnal hues in this collection.  Complete Salon Manicure has a Keratin Complex for up to 64% stronger nails and lasts up to ten days on the nail!

First up is A Bleu Attitude, a stunning true blue cream.  The formula is absolutely perfect.  It's deeply saturated so you'll only need one coat.  Just be sure to double up on your base coat in case it stains your nail plate (I always do this with blue's).



Tropic Thunder is a rich, dusty blue cream.  The formula is great on this one as well, you can get away with one coat if you get a good amount of polish on your brush.  It levels out like a dream.



Bow to the Queen is a dusty medium green-blue with gray undertones.  Again, this has an amazing formula, one coat is all you'll need.



Scarlet Lacquer is a dusty pink-leaning red.  I purchased this shade last year and I have worn it over and over!  Formula is fantastic, two easy coats.



Clean Slate is a deep plum purple.  Formula is ace, one coat is all you'll need.



Talk is Chic is a dusty eggplant cream.  The formula is perfect, it levels so nicely, it just does all the work for you.  Two easy coats is all you'll need.



What do you guys this of this Fall Collection?  My fave is definitely Scarlet Lacquer, the runner up is Talk is Chic.  What one is your fave?

Have a great day lovelies!

Navy-Teal with Gold Flakie Top Coat

 Hi Dolls!

I'm back at it again with the Sephora by OPI It's Real 18K Gold Top Coat.  I told you I can't get enough of this flakie topcoat.  When I was swatching the OPI Washington DC Fall Collection, I knew right away that I had to top CIA = Color is Awesome with gold flakies.  It did not disappoint!


I love using this top coat over dark colors!  I really want to get my hands on the OPI Mariah Carey Gold and Silver Leaf Top Coat.  The flakes look bigger than these gold ones which would be fun.  It was Limited Edition, but I'm sure I could find it on Amazon or something.

I topped everything with my NYC Grand Central Station top coat to make everything super shiny.  Another thing that I love about this gold top coat is that it lays super flat on the nail so it doesn't require multiple layers of top coat.  It is also super easy to take off (unlike most glitters).


And just for fun-zies, I added OPI's Matte About You topcoat.  I prefer it shiny, but this was cute too.


Have a great day loves!

Sparkly Lime and Nude Chevron Manicure

Hey Dolls!

I was in the mood for a Summer tape mani.  I love the look of neons and nudes together, it's one of my favorite combo's.

On my pointer finger I wore Essie Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low.  My middle and pinkie finger is Joe Fresh Sour Citron. My ring finger (and thumb) is OPI Infinite Shine No Strings Attached.



Have a great day lovelies!
