Zoya Charming Swatches and Review

TGIF!!! It has been one of those weeks that just seems to go on forever! So glad it is almost over and beautiful weather has been forecast for the whole weekend:) So to start your weekend off right I have the new Charming Collection from Zoya, and it is truly charming!  Six spring ready colors to brighten up your nails! 
*press sample*
First up is Millie, this can best be described as a dewy violet shimmer:) This beauty has almost a foil type quality to it. It is packed with gold and fuchsia shimmers. It reminds me of that perfect purple/pink that happens right at sunset!

 Tina is a perfect medium light amethyst purple creme! The perfect color for a tulip or any flower really!

 Abby is a light lavender creme that has a gorgeous blue undertone! I love the way Abby makes my pale skin look!

 Jordan is a soft blossom pink creme that I just LOVE!!!! This reminds me of one of my favorite pinks Kitridge, but this is more pastel!

 Amira is described as a soft dewy blue with a micro shimmer. This is a rainy day in a bottle! Packed with silver and gold micro flakes 

 Rounding out this collection is Lacey, the green version of Amira! A soft dewy green that reminds me of Tiana but with a sparkle!

 So with these beautiful cremes I just had to see if they watermarbled!!! And boy do they!!!

I Love this collection but I do have my favs. Can you guess what they are???  All swatches are 2 coats with a top coat! I am always impressed with the formula and super impressed with the formula on the pastels as they aren't streaky at all! These beauties are available now at www.zoya.com:)

Metallic Double Stamp

Happy Monday Loves!!! I always love the time change that come with Daylight savings, I don't however love getting my kiddos to adjust to the new bed time schedule... Just imagine trying to explain to a 2 year old why they have to go to sleep while it is still light out!!! For my Monday Mani I did a little double stamping! Thankfully this mani turned out perfect, considering I usually mess up stamping and this mani gave me double the chance:) 

For my base I used a classic white creme. I love a simple white mani, it is cleansing like fresh falling snow! I stamped on Essie Nothing Else Metals and Penny Talk, gorgeous Lavender and Copper metallic foils. I used plate BM-319 from Bundle Monster:) I just love how shiny this mani came out! It is shiny but not blingy, and while all girls love some bling, sometimes it is nice to just have shiny:)

Blurple Smoosh

Hi Dolls! So a few weeks ago I saw a Instagram nail tutorial by @nail_muse and just had to try it!!!  For my base I used China Glaze Bizarre Blurple. My accent color was a plain white creme.  I painted a small square on my silicon mat in my base color, put a drop of my accent color, and then another drop of my base. I then took my clear stamper and smooshed it down once. I painted a coat of SV on the square, and then after it dried used it as a decal:) 

This is definitely a little tricky to get the hang of and super easy to smudge (as you can see on the corner of my nail). However it is very pretty and has a ton of possibilities! I am excited to try multiple colors and color combos!!!
