Matte Rainbow Dots

Hi Dolls:) I haven't done a dot mani in a while and with all the rainbows on social media this week, I was inspired:)  I Love Dot manis mostly because they are super easy and fun!!! and with all the fabulous neon colors out right now I couldn't resist!!! For this mani I used all China Glaze polishes:
White:  White on White
Blue: DJ Blue My Mind
Pink: Shocking Pink
Purple: That's Shore Bright
Orange: Sun of a Peach
Green: I'm with the Lifeguard



I decided to add a Matte top coat to this just to give a little different feel:) CG's Matte Magic is what I used here:) I love how this mani turned out!!!

Tuesday French Tips

Happy Tuesday dolls!!!! I have such a fun mani to show you today:) I think this pattern for nail art in general is one of my favorites, it just has so many potential color combos and is so super easy!!!! Check out these others I have done in the past here and here:)  For this mani I started with tips in Zoya Kitridge a nice bubblegum pink:) I then added some leopard spots with Barry M's Blueberry and Black! Followed all this with a coat of SV:) Super easy, fun and quick!!!!



What do you think of this??? Played out or Play On??? I Love it and I guess that's all that really matters:) Hope you are having a great week and staying cool (it's so freaking hot outside)

 Meet me in the Mirage, is another fav in this collection!! This is a bronze super shimmer, that shines in epic proportions! This one is a little finicky in regards to brush strokes but so worth the effort, just use thin coats:) Here is 3 thin coats with no topcoat! 


The Heat is On, a cherry red crelly polish:)  I love the finish on this beauty, it is squishy like a Jelly!!! Here is 2 coats with no top coat:)


 Don't Mesa with my Heart is a bright bubblegum pink creme with a slight dusty feel to it:) This is bright and subdued all at the same time:) Here is 2 coats with no top coat!

Zoya Paradise Sun Swatches

Happy Tuesday Dolls!!! I can't believe we are on the brink of Summer, although here in the South it feels like we are smack dab in the middle of it!!! Today I have Part 2 of the Zoya Summer collections for you, Paradise Sun:) This Collection is full of metallic micro shimmer in some gorgeous tones!!!
*press sample*
First up is Mae, a vibrant warm Magenta with a metallic finish and silver micro shimmer!!! Here is 2 coats with 1 coats of SV:)


 Isa is next:) This gem is a rich purple metallic with a deep blue base infused with teal micro shimmers! This is my favorite of the whole collection:) Here is 2 coats with 1 coat of SV!


Selene, a rich teal with a strong metallic finish and aqua micro shimmers:) The finish of this is slightly off, once dry it almost looks like sheet prints and I'm not sure if I like it or not. But this color is absolutely stunning, but use a base as it can stain!:) Here is 2 coats with a coat of SV! 


 Oceane, is a blue metallic with a beautiful turquoise base:) The finish of this is the same as Selene and prone to stain as well:( However the color is breathtaking!!! Here is 2 coats and 1 coat of SV:)


Genesis is another favorite of this collection:) A Beautiful white shimmer that is not quite metallic!!! Here is 2 coats with a coat of SV:)


Aphrodite is the last in this collection, and has my favorite finish by far:) This is a vibrant red with an orange undertone, it's finish is a mix between a metallic and jelly!!! Here is 2 coats with a coat of SV:)


My favs of this collection are Isa, Oceane, Genesis!!! What are yours? This collection is available now on www.zoya.com for $9 each and $54 for all of them!

Zoya Island Fun Swatches

Hi Dolls!!!! Today I have the Zoya Island Fun Collection to show you:) This is a collection of 6 richly pigmented bright creme beauties! One of the things I love most about this collection is the deepness of the tones, I can definitely see wearing this collection well into the Fall:)
*press sample*
First up is Demetria:) A bright poppy red that leans slightly orange! This color is so classic and beautiful it just begs to be put on your toes for a trip to the pool or beach!!! Here is 2 coats with a coat of SV!  


Cecilia is a gorgeous traditional teal creme:) This polish makes me think of the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean!!! But be careful with this one as it is highly pigmented and can stain so make sure you wear a good base coat!!! Here is 2 coats with a coat of SV:)


Nana is a bright fuchsia that is perfect for your next Mani!!!! Love the wearability of this Color!!!! Here is 2 coats with a coat of SV:)


Serenity is a bright summery purple creme:) This gem has a great blue undertone and I love the way it looks with my skin tone!!!  Here is 2 coats with a coat of SV!


Jace is a great tropical green!!! Every time I look at this color I can't wait to do some nail art with it!!!! Here is 2 coats with a coat of SV:)


Lastly is Talia, a bright turquoise/blue creme that is incredible!!! I am such a sucker for blues too:) Like Cecilia this baby is highly pigmented and will stain, so make sure you use a good base!!! Here is 2 coats with a coat of SV!


I always look forward to Zoya's collections no matter the season and this is no different!!! I love how true to the tropics this collection is!!! It is available now on www.zoya.com for $9 each and $54 for the collection! Stay tuned because I have Paradise Sun Collection coming soon!!!
