Zoya Ignite Swatches and Review

Happy Tuesday Dolls:) Wow time is really flying by!!! My baby girl is 5wks old today:)  And She is growing and changing so much everyday!!! But I can say that being a Mom of 2 is definitely more taxing than 1!!! 
*Press Samples*
Today I have the brand New Fall collection from Zoya, Ignite!!! 6 Fabulous shimmery liquid metallics perfect for Fall!!! Up First is Sansa, a deep eggplant purple with a metallic gold shimmer:) This beauty is stunning!!! 

 Remy is next:) a Vibrant blue with copper and gold metallic hints and a slight green flash:) This polish reminds me of Dream (My review here) If you love Dream then Remy is right up your alley!!!

Yuna is a medium warm Grey with a Golden shimmer, a perfect Fall neutral without being purple, brown or red:) Classic but edgy all at the same time!!!

India is next:) A deep shimmery Red with flecks of purple and gold. A true Fall color, deep but not vampy and sooo rich!!!

Teigen is a perfect pink cranberry with a golden shimmer!!! This is my favorite of the collection it is bright but still dark, and the shimmer is so beautiful!!!

Last up is Autumn!!! Now if I had to pick a color to match a name this is it!!! A burnt orange with a golden copper shimmer!!! Like a perfect Fall sunset!!!

All swatches are 2 coats with a coat of SV.  The formula for this whole collection is exactly what I have come to expect from Zoya,  well pigmented and great consistency. Zoya Ignite is a gorgeous collection!!! All Colors in this collection are $9 and the whole collection is $54. If I had a must have Teigen and Remy are it!!! Which ones will you be picking up???

Zoya Naturel Deux Collection Swatches & Review

Hi Dolls!!! I'm back:) So to give you guys a update on my life, Tuesday August 5th I gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby Girl:) She weighed 5lbs 15oz and was 18 inches long:) And she has definitely been keeping me busy day and night, but I'm Loving every minute of it!!!! 

*Press Sample*
Today after approx 5 days of trying to get this post done, I finally can show you the Zoya Naturel Deux Collection:) 6 perfectly neutral polishes!!! First up is Spencer, a creamy camel nude:) This polish makes me want coffee!!! Here is 2 coats with a coat of SV:)

 Chanelle is next, this beauty is a milk chocolate creme:) Perfect for Fall and Totally gorgeous!!! Here is 2 coats with a coat of SV:)

 Emilia is the last of the browns, this gem is a dark chocolate creme with a slight lean towards grey. This is my favorite of the collection, it is dark without being vampy:) 2 coats and a coat of SV!!!

 Marney is the darkest of the Purples:) This is a rich warm plum that just screams cool evenings and toasted marshmallows over a fire!!! I Love Fall!!!! 2 coats and a coat of SV:)  

 Aubrey is a medium plum creme. This color is my least favorite of the collection, I just feel like I have seen this color done a hundred times. It is really very pretty and the formula is perfection just not for me:) Here is 2 coats and a coat of SV.

Madeline is the last in this collection. This polish is a much lighter version of Aubrey, and it has a more of pink hint to it. I normally don't like polishes in the mauve hue, but I just love the way this polish looks with my skin tone:) Here is 2 coats and a coat of SV!!!

I Love this collection:) I think I like it better than the Naturel Collection. This collection is available from www.zoya.com for $9 each or $54 for the whole collection:) Which one is your favorite???

Barielle Perfect Mani Review and GIVEAWAY!!!

*Press Sample*
TGIF Dolls!!!! Wow what a week!!!! I am now 1 and 1/2 wks away from my due date and the excitement is KILLING me!!!! I am starting to get a little nervous about labor, but then again I know it will be worth it!!! But just a heads up I probably won't be around as much over the next two months, but I will do my best:)  On to the Nails!!! Today I have the ingredients for the perfect mani, and the best part is you have a chance to win everything I used!!!!

Here are my nails before the start of this mani... I know they don't look that bad right but then again I make it a ritual to do a mani every week!!!
Here are my nails after the Extra Gentle Cuticle Minimizer and Intensive Nail Renewal Oil.  The Cuticle minimizer is really gentle, and not harsh at all:) I have really sensitive skin and I Love that this stuff didn't irritate at all!!! After a good hand washing I used the nail oil and it is awesome!!! the Pic is an elapsed time of about 15 min and massage in!!! With any cuticle or nail oil it is important to give the product time to soak in and do it's job!!! 
Now on to the actual polish!!! My perfect mani is a classic french tip:) I think I am so partial to this look because it is classic for any age, occasion, and outfit i.e. perfect!!!! I started with a base of the Nail Rebuilding Protien and then broke out the French mani kit:) This 3 piece kit has easy to use little guides, a white tip color, a sheer pink nail color and a top coat!!!

I Just Love how easy this kit was to use:) I followed with a quick coat of the Mani Extender and after that was good and dry a good lather up of the hand cream!!! The whole mani only took about 1hr:) and that includes the nail oil soak time and dry time!!!  Now here is your chance to win all the product listed below!!! Barielle Extra Gentle Cuticle Minimizer, Intensive Nail Renewal Oil, Nail Rebuilding Protien, Natural French Manicure Kit, Ultra Speed Dry Manicure Extender and Professional Protective Hand Cream!!!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Good Luck!!!!
