Zoya Magical Pixie Dust, Summer Collection, Review

~Press Sample~

Morning! I have had little motivation for doing nails lately, this nice weather has got me outside whenever possible :D I have three gorgeous polishes to show you today, its the Zoya Magical Pixie Dust Summer Collection! Their first collection for this type of texture was a huge hit for me, and I was really excited to try out these new colors. I have one mani with all three colors and macros after of each polish, my general review is at the end.

Zoya: Alro, three coats no top coat.
This one is by far my favorite of the three

Zoya: Ginni, three coats no top coat
I wish this pink was brighter for being in a summer collection

Zoya: Bar, three coats no top coat
This is my second favorite, beautiful champagne nude.

All together these polishes have a gorgeous finish, but I didn't like the formula in this bunch. The first set of Magical Pixie Dust only required two coats, and this set I had to apply three. I also felt like I didn't get an even application of the larger glitters with each of these. Zoya is by far my favorite polish brand but sadly this collection is a fail for me.
Did you grab any of these? Have better luck then me?

These will retail at $10 a bottle. Make sure to follow Zoya at your preferred social networking site to get inside news on deals, they always have something up their sleeve :D

Orange Creamsicle Anyone?

~Nothing to Disclose~

I surprisingly really enjoyed wearing this mani, and it really reminds me of orange creamsicles! Perhaps these orange polishes wont get neglected anymore :D

Lacquer Legion: Garden

~Nothing To Disclose~

Happy Wednesday! My mani today was inspired by a fellow nail artist in one of my facebook groups. I also got lucky that this mani can count toward Lacquer Legions prompt today, which is garden.

China Glaze: Pool Party
Cosmetic Arts: Picture Day
Cheeky Jumbo 7

I really enjoyed the end result of this mani. It's sort of subtle nail art and also elongates your nails by having a brighter color at the tips of your nails. If you have a garden theme mani today make sure to take part in the Lacquer Legion!

BPS, Neon Round Studs

~Press Sample~ ~Nothing to Disclose~

Hello dear readers, I have neon studs from Born Pretty Store to show you today. If you are like me, in the summertime, I LOVE neon everything. I know I will get alot of use out of these studs, check out all the different neon colors!

I paired these neon studs with one of my new Polish Me Silly colors, Freckles. Which is my first neon glitter and I am in love!


Color Club: London Calling
Polish Me Silly: Freckles

OO what a pretty Macro! I have always seen Freckles over a white base, and knew I wanted to try a different base color. I would say this neon mint green is also a perfect fit for Freckles. The neon studs are the perfect studs, they barely stick off my nail and I could see the lasting days.

These neon studs are going to be great for nail art this summer, you can find them here. The Born Pretty Store really has so much to offer in nail art items, they also offer free International shipping. Make sure to use my coupon code below for 10% off!!

Graduation Nails

~Nothing to Disclose~

Good Morning! I am in a great mood today, the sun is shining and all week temps are suppose to be warm. Also this weekend is my brothers wedding!! I still have to get thru this week tho, and lets start it off with some festive graduation nails. Two of my younger cousins graduated High School and knew I wanted to create a mani just for them.

I did this mani at my parent's so I forget to write down the colors. It's always crazy seeing how fast my cousins are growing up, plus it's weird that I have now been graduated from High School for 5 years! Time sure does fly!

BPS: Gold Square Studs

~Press Sample~

Yay only one more day till the weekend! I have been bombarding you with reviews this week, I got so far behind after taking a lot of time off last month. Today my review from the Born Pretty Store is for square gold studs. I did a rather simple design with these studs since they are a statement on their own.

Below is a macro to show how much these studs stand off a nail. You can also see that they don't lay flat on curved nails. 

These square studs are perfect for an edgy mani, you can find them here. The Born Pretty Store really has so much to offer in nail art items, they also offer free International shipping. Make sure to use my coupon code below for 10% off!!
