Vintage Flowers w/dots and stripes

Happy Hump Day,

We are half way through the week and why not put an extra pep in our step with some fun nails. Today I am wearing a "vintage" flower design with added stripes and dots. For this manicure I used Zoya Bevin, Zoya Josie as leaves, FingerPaints Blank Canvas cream and FingerPaints Hip Hip Hue-Ray white striping polish.

I have been in a flower mood lately. Do you have any other flower themed nails you would like to suggest for me to try? Comment here or on this Facebook post! Hope you all have a great rest of your week.

Pacifica Roll-on Perfume in Island Vanilla: Inspired by the unique magic of Tahitian vanilla, this sensual blend sets sweet and sultry vanilla absolute, with honey-jasmine notes and a touch of fruitiness, against a deep and beautiful base of tea.  I love how slim and travel easy this product is. Loving the sweet scent.

Nume Finishing Serum for hair: This light, greaseless, and humidity resistant formula delivers a straight-up glossy finish. This silky smooth serum added tons of shine to my locks without the greaseball look. I love it! 

Maribella Color Sheer Lipstick: I received the shade Posy, a red to plum shade, very pretty. Hydrates and nourishes the lips while depositing beautifully translucent color for the perfect pout. Available in a wide-range of fashionable shades. Lead-free; Paraben-free. 

Zoya Nail Polish and Treatments polish on Piaf: Part of their 2013 Spring Lovely collection, this shade is a custom runway shade originally created for fashion designer Zang Toi.  Piaf is so PRETTY. A metallic shimmer yellow. Zoya describes this as full-coverage, fresh forsythia yellow metallic. In my words, it's Buttercup!!!

Let's Compare Zoya Yellows!!!

Hello all you wonderful people!

Today I sat down and have finally gotten a chance to post one of my requested comparison's.

The Zoya YELLOW'S.< I have brought together Zoya Darcy, Creamy and Pippa for your viewing to show the comparisons. Each is similar but different in their own way.

Darcy is a full coverage sunny yellow cream. As the picture shows I applied Zoya Darcy on my pinky and index finger. Darker yellow than the two middle fingers.

Pippa is a soft yellow creme. Lighter than Darcy and Creamy.

Creamy is described as a bright yet soft banana-peel shade of yellow cream. A more milkier color if you will.

While Creamy and Pippa are similar, both have their differences in my opinion. Both are much different than Darcy through my eyes. AND yes, I need all 3 in my collection!!

Zoya Nail Polish and Treatments are available on their website! Go ahead, grab all three!

Feel free to send me an email at for any requests. Don't be shy.

When you're feeling down, just add glitter!?!

Is is Friday yet?

Just kidding. It has been a rough few days over my way and decided to add a little sparkle to my life. A go to manicure that kicks up my sour mood. Add's a little spring to my step and always get the most compliments. As plain as it may be it's PINK, with GLITTER. 

Today I decided on Barielle Ali's Lace Cover UP. A muted dusty pink topped of with a generous coat of one of my all time favorite glitter toppers, OPI Teenage Dream from the Katy Perry Collection! 

Do tell. What do you do to cheer yourself up when you are feeling down?

Zoya PixieDust Summer Edition

 Zoya PixieDust Special Texture Edition Image</p>

Good Morning!!!

Today I am showing off the very beautiful Zoya Summer PixieDust Collection. This is a set of six vibrant and ultra sparkly matte PixieDust shade that is sure to get you ready for summer!

Zoya PixieDust are worn without a base coat or top coat to achieve the look that it meant for. There is a 3-6 minute drying period and removal is a breeze. No where near the difficulty like most glitter infused polishes. Formula is great, all shades dry matte and I am wearing 2 coats in each photo. 

Zoya Solange:

A gold metal foil sparkle featuring a Zoya EXCLUSIVE GOLD PIGMENT. Very full coverage and a perfect formula. 
Zoya Beatrix

Beatrix is described as a tangerine metal sparkle. Beautiful eye catching color and sparkle in this one!

Zoya Destiny

Destiny can be best described as a coral metal sparkle. Lots of shimmer with a slight yellow dust in it. Stunning and one of my favorite shades in this collection.

Zoya Miranda

Miranda is a rose sparkle. VERY shimmery with a slight silver dust twinkle to it if you turn your hand the right way. Definitely #2 in my list of favorites this collection!
Zoya Stevie

A violet almost pastel PixieDust. Ms. Stevie comes in a #3 favorite!
Zoya Liberty
 A blue sugary sparkle. Reminds me of dipping blueberries on sugar as a child, yum!  

I LOVE each and every one of them. Each polishes formula was prefect with zero clumpiness. Dry time was 3-6 minutes and removal is a breeze. The texture is great, not too rough. Doesn't catch onto things like you may have thought, a pleasant surprise!  All 6 colors were swatched with 2 flawless coats.

Zoya Nail Polish and Treatments never disappoint me. Keep up the phenomenal work Fairies!!

Each polish can be purchased on the Zoya's website HERE for $9 each. Colors are available now!

All polishes are BIG5FREE. Free of Formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, camphor and dibutyl phthalate. Zoya is vegan friendly and a cruelty free nail color.
