Kimber's Challenge A-Z Letter T

I cannot believe we are at T already.   It has been a great ride but is going to start to get interesting especially for X  I wish Zoya was a little Hispanic friendly and had a Ximena because that is the only place I would think I might be able to find an X but I guess there are other options.  So, for T I chose another Zoya.  This one is called Tinsley and it was a color I wanted but chose Amy and then got the second chance to order so I was able to order Tinsley

Kimber's Challenge A-Z Letter R

I know this is late but I don't want to skip one letter so I am going to share my R.  I chose Rikki because I love this color.   Essie Rae at IHeart Pretty Polish always can find a dupe and found Hard Candy's Crushed by Ivy as a dupe for this particular polish.  I might have to pick up a bottle just for an extra.  So here is Rikki.

April favorites

 April was a month of a lot of polish and not much nail art.  I ordered a lot of polish.  Probably because it was my birthday and I kept justifying each bottle as a little present to myself.
So, the first polish I want to recognize is of course Claris the beautiful dream pink by Pretty Serious Cosmetics.

 And of course we can't get through April without mentioning Rikki.  My favorite of the shimmers.  Which I ended up buying all of those.  Only bought two pixie dust and am conducting an experiment.  I will report next week on my findings.  But I have nothing like Rikki and I look forward to wearing it often.

 The galaxy manicure was vindication for the two other ones I did and looked horrid.  I finally got it down and I think it looks pretty good.

Butter London's Sunbaker just reminds me of our summer vacation and how I can't wait to get a little sun and listen to some reggae music.


I added Bobby Dazzler not so much because I am in love with the polish but I like the way this picture looks.  I can't wait to wear this.

 This of course is my favorite polish but is it Taboo to spend $27.00 on nail polish?

So, these are my favorites did you see something that you liked during April that I did not add.  Let me know.  I love comments.
Ciao for now,

My Summer Zoya Picks The Shimmers

I got my favorite picks from the Zoya Summer line last week and I picked my very favorite but then Zoya has their promotion out and I was able to pick the rest of the shimmers and crèmes except for one that I just totally have and would be a dupe for two other polishes.  So, here they are.
My first pick was Rikki.  I don’t have anything like this.  I have olive toned greens but nothing with a real green tint and I absolutely love this one.  It is Zoya the formula is great.  Two coats and you are ready to go.
My next choice was Bobbi.  A beautiful magenta.  I just love the way it looks.  It makes me feel so feminine when I wear it and the formula is great.  I think I might start reaching for this one a little more than some of the others.
You might be surprised to find that Amy was my third choice since I love orange/corals so much.  I do love this one but I love the other ones a little more especially Bobbi.  I am not saying that I won’t be really reaching for this one but since orange/coral is my favorite color to wear plain I obviously have a lot of them. 
Now, I this was the last swatch of the day and my cuticles are a little rough but don’t let it take away from just focusing on the color of the polish on the nails.  This is so summery.  I had to have it and luckily it is not a dupe for butter London’s Sunbaker.  I do want to say one thing to Zoya.  When are you going to make a polish named after me.  They should have a contest.  Come on Zoya Patricia or Patty isn’t bad. You named one after my dog and not me.  Do you have a polish named after you?  If so, what is it and do you have the polish?
Ciao, for now,

Zoya Lovelys Part II The Shimmers

The first one is Gei Gei a pink shimmer.  This is three coats.  The only problem I had was that you really have to wait for each coat to dry before you put the next one on.  It is a pretty color it does look a lot like OPI’s Pedal Faster Suzi.

The next one is Julie it is a lavender lilac.  This one is just two coats.  For some reason it went on easier than the other two and only required two coats.

The last one is Piaf.  This is my favorite of the shimmers.  I don’t have anything like this one it is a yellow shimmer.  Three coats. It is just very pretty.

Well, that is the whole collection.  To me it is a good collection.  All the colors are solid and can go with almost anything.  I think this was a good buy.

Zoya Lovelys

I know I said I was not going to buy another full set of anything but these are too gorgeous not to have in my collection and I got them under budget so it was worth it.  This is Jacqueline, a beautiful extra pale yellow but it is described as a pale pink. It might be my skin tone that makes it look yellow but it is really nice and I can see myself wearing this often. 



The next one is Neely a mint green which just reminded me of pistachio yogurt.  I hope my yogurt store puts that flavor out this summer.  although they have this wonderful flavor called Carmel salted pretzel.  It is so good.  It would taste great with pistachio. 



The next one seems to be a favorite I heave heard a lot of people saying they want this one.   It is called Blu.  This one just reminds me of a newborn baby clothes.  It is so baby like I love it.  It seems to have a calming affect.



Those are the cremes.  I will have the shimmers tomorrow. 

So, out of the three do you have a  favorite?  Remember Zoya's promotion that starts Monday.

Found This Last Night. The Easiest blk/wth Manicure

Katy Perry has been sporting this manicure. I saw it about a month ago when she was on the cover of Elle magazine and when I saw it I immediately came home and did it photographed it and put something else on. It lay there in my new folder and I noticed it and thought why has it taken me so long to post this.




This is so easy all I did was paint my nails white wait till they dry then you can use a striper pen or just the brush of your black nail polish and make the curve let that dry and do two dots.  It is easy but I got a little impatient and smudged the black dot on the index finger.  It is easy and it really looks nice.  So, when you want something fast and easy try this, it is fun and looks like you put some effort into it.
