Throwback Thursday: Zoya Cashmere Swatches & Review

Press Sample

Don't you hate it when you're on your computer, looking through files, and you discover that you never posted those swatches that you did literally MONTHS ago? Awesome, right? I feel like a big ol' dummy. I looked at the date, and these photos were taken in August. Yeah, that month at the end of summer that was, hmmm, let's count...over 7 months ago. Really. The sad part? I LOVED this collection, so I'm not sure how I could have missed posting it!!

Anyway, better late than never right?

A Frog in My Throat

Nothing to Disclose

Rumor has it that there is another Muppets movie out recently. While I did this a few months ago for a 31-day challenge (the theme for the day was 'green'), I figured this would be perfect to post on my blog instead of just my Instagram. This was a super quick and simple design that you instantly recognize, right? For some reason it makes me want to sing Rainbow Connection. lol

I'll be honest, it's been a while, and I only remember what color I used for the base color of Kermit–I'll list it below. :)

Kermit, Muppets, collar, neck, A Frog in My Throat

Are you going to watch the new Muppets Most Wanted movie? What do you think of my Kermit interpretation? Tell me in the comments below, I'd love to hear from the lovers, the dreamers, and you!

Morgan Taylor Glam Rock Swatches & Review

Morgan Taylor Glam Rock nail art

My first introduction to Morgan Taylor was this past summer at Cosmoprof, and man, what a color selection! Today's post is a review of their Winter 2014 collection–Glam Rock. These are colors fit for a punk rock princess; silver, black, duochrome, it has a little everything for the chic girl on the go! Most of the colors are pretty pigmented, and the ones that aren't build very nicely!

Luck of the Not So Irish?

Nothing to Disclose Press Sample

Happy belated St Patrick's Day! I posted this manicure on my Instagram (Are you following me yet?! :-P) yesterday and, as promised, I'm posting them here on the blog! I know that I've been horrid about posting lately, but I'm working very hard to get stuff posted and collections swatched for you!! :-D

So about the nails, I usually hate stuff affixed to my nails, but I knew that the gold studs from the Sally Hansen I ♥ Nail Art stud set would be perfect for gold coins left by a mischievous little leprechaun on my nail! I actually like the ring finger nail a lot, and since the studs are so close together, I won't pick them off like I usually do. I used a bunch of polishes for this manicure, so see below for the details!

You can sort of see the beautiful shift of Ninja Polish Shillelagh best in the second photo; from one angle it is a beautiful emerald, and from another it's a golden green, and sometimes I feel like I can even see a rusty orange. I love it!

Side note: These pictures were unfortunately taken after a shift at work, so there is some slight tip wear...oops!

ZOYA Magical Pixie Dust Swatches & Review

Press Sample

If I had to guess what kind of nail polish Disney princesses and fairies wore, the Zoya Magical Pixie Dust collection would most definitely be it. I'm not sure the polish fairies at Zoya Headquarters could have packed any more glittery goodness in these three polishes! I really like the mixture of texture, holographic hexagonal glitter, and smaller holographic and regular glitter. It's kinda like a stripper exploded on my nails, but you know, in a good way.
