Born Pretty Gold and Silver Foil

Oh I sooo ♥ Fall weather!!!! It has finally started to get a little cooler here and is really started to feel like Fall!!!! and in celebration of this change I did some super easy nail art with Born Pretty Gold foil!!!  
*press sample*
I paired the Gold foil with Zoya India and put a top coat over and DONE!!! Super Easy:) 

Now the foil is super thin and definitely fragile!!!! The only look it is really feasible to be used for is this:( but it does lay flat on the nail and looks freaking fantastic, not to mention you get 6 gold and 6 silver for less than $6 @ Born Pretty Store (use RWL91 for 10% off your purchase)!!!!  What do you think of this look??? Perfect for Fall right!!!

Zoya Fall 2014 Ultra Pixie

Who loves texture??? Well most of the time I am not a huge fan but.... Zoya just released 3 red hued Ultra Pixies and WOWZA!!!! They are Soooo Gorgeous:)  Texture polishes are iffy to me I guess I just have to really LOVE the color to tolerate the feel of the texture. Now don't get me wrong I adore the way they look; I am just a huge texture person, clothes, food, blankets, sheets, just about everything I use or buy is based on texture:) 
*press sample*
Oswin is up First:) A true crimson red texture with large hexes:) So freaking pretty!!!! 2 coats with no base or top coat.


 Arianna is next:) A nice red wine color with a blue undertone, and gorgeous:) This beauty wasn't as opaque as Oswin and left a little visible nail line (VNL) with only 2 coats, I will probably use 3 next time:) and it did not dry completely matte:(
 


 Noir is last in the bunch and I Love it!!!! A rich almost vampy plum color:) Now I had the same issue here as it didn't dry to a completely matte finish so I would probably add a matte topcoat next time, but super gorg in 2 coats:) 


Now Here I added a thick coat of Gelous to all three and set the swatches up side by side to see the difference:) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!
























Now you can get all of these for $30 or each for $10 from www.zoya.com!!! and did I mention shipping is super fast:) Zoya is definitely One of my top 3 brands that I use and above is exactly why:)

I have been reviewing some nail art products from Born Pretty and I just had to try out their stamping plates:) I pick out the vintage floral arabesque  template, it has 13 designs!!!! I Love the way holos look on super dark colors so I picked OPI Honk if you Love OPI and stamped it with Color Club Cloud Nine:) 

I am super happy with this stamping plate, I love the design and had no problem with picking up the image:) You can get this plate from the Born Pretty Store and you can get 10% off  with the coupon code below:)

Barielle Me Couture Swatches and Review

Happy Friday Eve Dolls!!! I can't believe it is already October:) Cooler nights is one of my favorite things about this time of year, this means hoodies and hot coffee!!! It also means darker nail colors:) Now I personally love the bright neon colors of Summer but after three months, there is something refreshing about the darker color of fall!!! Barielle's new Me Couture Collection are the perfect darker colors to your Fall wardrobe:) 
*press sample*
Soho at Night is a deep grape purple. This beauty is rich, creamy and an absolutely perfect dark purple:) 


Moda Bleu a gorgeous navy blue that is just what you need for fall:) I must say lately I have become quite taken with navy polishes, I think it is because it is such a classic color but not emo like black is:)


Taupe Notch is a cool gray, think cloudy winter skies or a charcoal gray suit. The name to me is a little off, I normally think of taupe as being more brown than this... I do love this color though, like black and white it is a good neutral:)


 Vintage Gown is a dusty pink/mauve with a golden shimmer:) This shimmer is very prominent in the bottle but  hidden on the nail.  Beautiful and classic:)


 Boho Chic is a nice deep sea green that leans slightly toward teal:) Although sea green is not exactly how I would describe this polish it is absolutely stunning!!!


 Berry Posh is the last of this collection:) This is a creamy raspberry shade that is gorgeous!!! Nice and bright but classicly fall!!!


This whole collection is just gorgeous and available now at www.barielle.com:) I had no application issues with any of these polish, however Moda Bleu and Boho Chic can stain so make sure you wear a good base!!! The formula was fantastic but not as pigmented  I normally like and all shades needed 3 coats for complete opacity. But beautiful none the less:)

It all DOTS to Me

Good Morning Dolls!!!! I hope you have all had a great week!!! As I sit here drinking my coffee and listen to the TV playing in the background (the movie Twister, one of my favs), I am reminded of how far I have come with this little blog:) I just started out documenting my weekly (sometimes daily) manis and now I get the fabulous opportunity to review polish and have met some of the best most supporting women I have had the privilege to know!!! For Today's Mani, I wanted to take it back a little. Two of my favorite "nail art" techniques when I first got started were Skittles and Dots:) throw in a little Holo and I was all over it!!!  And looking at this mani I remember why I fell in Love with Polish:) 



This mani is so fun, and my 6yr old loves it!!! Here are the polishes I used with links on how to get your own:)
Pointer (Blue) - Chirality Quarks, Zoya Ryan
Pinky (Red/Pink) - Chirality Bloodshot, Zoya Veronica

I am so happy with the way this mani turned out, the past couple of months I have been super slack on nail art but wearing this mani the last couple of days has reignited my love for it:)

Zoya Entice Swatches and Review

Happy Friday Dolls!!! Wow this week has been absolutely crazy, it seems like there is just not enough time in the day!!!  My baby girl is 6wks old already and growing like a weed!!! 8lbs 10oz, which means she has put on almost 3lbs since she was born!!! Now on to the fun stuff!!!
*Press Sample*
The latest Fall collection from Zoya is Entice!!! A collection of 6 rich colors perfect for the fall season!!! First up is Ryan:) This rich indigo blue is my favorite!!!! And it doesn't stain, SCORE!!!! 


Nyssa is next a warm milk chocolate brown:) Just looking at this polish makes me think of cool weather and warm sweaters!!!


Claire is a deep burgundy!!! This polish is like a good red wine, it goes with everything:) Dark and vampy, perfect for Fall!!!


Margo is the purple of this collection!!! A gorgeous red undertone make this polish stand out, now all I need is to find a sweater in this color:)


Genevieve is a cool gray with a slight silver shimmer:) This polish is my least favorite of the collection, I think it is because it feels a little dusty or muted! All the other colors are very rich!!!


Veronica is the last in this collection a deep berry pink:) A rich color that anybody can wear!!! Bright  and rich perfect for transitioning between summer and fall!!! Beware though this beauty can stain your cuticles if you are not careful:)


Zoya has hit it out of the park with Zoya Entice, it is the perfect fall creme collection!!! The formula is very well pigmented and not too thin!!! All swatches are 2 coats with a coat of SV:) All colors in this collection are $9 and the whole collection is $54 and is at www.zoya.com available now .
