Barielle Hot Chic Swatches and Review

Hey Dolls!!!! It is hard to believe the end of August is here!!!! Once September get here I feel like I should pull out all my hoodies and jeans... even though here in the South it doesn't get cold enough for that till November... It's like September is the unofficial end of Summer:(  Anyway I have the Barielle Hot Chic Collection for your viewing enjoyment today!!!!  
*press sample*
First up is Secret Desire!!!! A bright and shimmery purple that is gorgeous!!! Brush streaks are easily made with this polish, but then again it is that way with most shimmers:) The formula was great!!!! Here is 2 coats no topcoat!!!

 Harley D is next!!! A deep Chocolate brown shimmer with a slight orange undertone!!! This is my fav in this collection!!! It has such a beautiful shimmer and again great formula!!! Here is 2 coats with no topcoat:)

 Born 2 B Naughty is a dusty green with a strong blue undertone!!!! This is one of those colors that just makes me long for cool mornings with a hot cup of coffee and a nice warm hoodie!!!! Formula was perfect and here is 2 coat no topcoat!!!

 Orange U Jealous, is a vibrant burnt orange with a pink/gold shimmer!!! The shimmer in this one is just sooo gorgeous, the pics don't do it justice!!!! Here is 2 coats no topcoat:)

 Sheer Nonsense is the last in this collection and after all those bright and deep fall colors a classic sand is exactly what need!!!! Even though sheer is in it name, it is most definitely not sheer!!! A creamy classic sand with a slight gray tone!!!! Here is 2 coats with no topcoat:)

This collection will be available starting tomorrow on and you probably noticed my watermark has changed along with my header:) I am in the process of slowly revamping things and felt it was time for a change, what do you think???

Zoya Flair Swatches and Review

Happy Friday Eve Dolls!!!!! So a couple of days ago I showed you the Zoya Focus Collection and today I have the Flair Collection!!!! Now to be completely honest Creme polishes are my favorite, I would rather wear a creme than almost anything else:) however Zoya changed my mind with this collection because I don't think I have ever liked a shimmer as much as I like these!!!!  Flair is a 6 piece collection of highly pigmented shimmery beauties:) The formula is perfect and the colors are soooo pretty!!!!
*press sample*
First up is Cinnamon:) A shimmery dark bronze that truly exceeded my expectations!!!! This polish just brings out some warm fuzzy feelings in me!!!! Here is 2 coats no top coat:)

 Aggie is next!!! This is the only polish in this collection that I was disappointed in:( In the bottle it looks like a golden duochrome shifting to blue/green, but this just doesn't translate on to the nail. You can see a slight shift but nothing like the bottle!!! However even though I didn't see the shift I would have like this color is rather stunning!!! Here is 2 coats no topcoat:)

 Ember is a fiery red liquid metal!!! This polish glows like it is lit from within:)  Words can't describe how beautiful this polish is IRL!!! 2 coats no top coat:)

 Tris is a beautiful blackened brushed nickle!!!! I love a good grey polish and the shimmer in this one definitely makes this one stand out!!!!  2 coats no top coat!!! 

Giada, is a vibrant deep purple liquid metal!!!! This polish is STUNNING, a dream, the first purple polish I fell in Love with at first stroke.... 2 coats no topcoat!!!

 And my FAV of this collection is Estelle!!!! A cobalt blue liquid metal!!!! This much like Ember seems to be lit from within!!!! This beauty just glows:) 2 coats no topcoat!!!

So what do you think of this collection!!!! I am super impressed by the collection as a whole!!!! This collection is available now on and for a limited time you can get it in mini too!!!!

Zoya Focus Swatches and Review

 I can't believe that Fall is right around the corner!!!! It is already the middle of August!!! Where has the Summer gone:( And with fall comes cooler weather, changing leaves and of course new nail colors!!!! To start us off on the new fall colors I have the Zoya Focus Collection!!!! Six gorgeous cremes that go from subdued to bright!!!!
*press sample*
First up is Charli, a dusty taupe with a green base:) This polish is tricky, it looks almost grey sometimes but then an olive green at others!!! 2 coats with no top coat:)

Desiree is next:) A nice chocolate brown, but with just enough grey to keep the tone cool!!!! Completely gorgeous, here is 2 coats with no top coat:)

 Lidia is a rich eggplant purple!!!! A perfect fall purple that look fabulous against my pale skin!!!! Here is 2 coats with no top coat:)

 Janel is a warm deep red that is slightly smoky:) Absolutely stunning:) Here is 2 coats no top coat!!!

Sia is a bright royal blue!!!! Super pigmented so make sure to wear a good base coat to prevent staining!!! Here is 2 coats no top coat:)

 Hannah is a bright fire engine red!!!! A purely true red great for any time of year!!!!! 2 coats no top coat:)

I Love this collection:) The formula is perfect, richly pigmented and so smooth!!!! I think there is something for everyone!!!! Sia, Hannah and Lidia are my favorites but I will definitely wear all of them!!!! You can grab these babies from!!!! Enjoy:)
