Zoya Payton

This is a swatch Zoya Payton, part of the Zenith Winter Holiday 2013 Collection.

This polish is described as a "full coverage galactic cranberry polish with holographic glitter".  It has an almost-jelly finish, with a great depth and sparkle.  It immediately became one of my favorite polishes.  Two coats gave perfect full coverage.

Turkey Day Stripes

Happy Thanksgiving Y'all!  I am looking forward to a very full day (3-4 meals!) of food & family.  Then my mother and I are heading out shopping, even though we only need a few things.  It's just nice to have some mother daughter time with no time constricts.  The men are at home asleep so no one is waiting for us to get home and we just shop and talk :)

Indie Polish Black Duo Holo

Indie Polish Facebook
Indie Polish Etsy

Today I have a polish called Black Duo Holo from Indie Polish.  This is my first polish from this brand and I was definitely impressed!  This polish was actually purchased for me by my 21 month old son, who apparently ordered it when I left the page up and walked away from the computer.  I found out when I opened the mailbox and had a package!

Pink Purple Galaxy


Hey y'all, today I have my first "galaxy" style mani.  This isn't the typical color scheme for a galaxy (blue, black, pink, green etc.) but rather one based on Zoya Payton (my base color).   The idea was more of a twilight colored galaxy scheme but it didn't quite turn out like I wanted.

I started with Zoya Payton as my base, then sponged China Glaze Gossip Over Gimlets.  Then LA Colors Light Pink Metalic, and Zoya Reva.  I then sponged a little of the base color to blend it all a bit.  I dabbed Wet N Wild Coloricon Speak When Spoken To on the very center and topped it all with crack (China Glaze Fairy Dust) and Sally Hansen InstaDri.

Feather Nails- Halloween Costume Mani

Hi Y'all!  Today I have feather manis to show you, and this is the first time I've ever done these (literally, I practiced once on one nail first and that's it lol).  I got the idea from this post at Syl and Sam.  This post will include mine and my friends manis, mine turquoise and her's red.  We are both dressing as Native American Indians for Halloween and these are to go with our costumes.

Wonder Beauty Products SuperChic Lacquer Moonshine Merlot

Today I have Wonder Beauty Products SuperChic Lacquer "Moonshine Merlot".  This is described on the Wonder Beauty page as "Super glistening burgundy wine crelly-chrome base embellished with bronze dust, burnt orange and iridescent glitter effects".  I would add that it also has gold glitters, in addition to the bronze. 

I layered one coat of Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Save the Date and 2 coats SuperChic Lacquer Moonshine Merlot.  The formula and glitter payoff was great, opaque in 2-3 coats but I chose to layer it for a quicker mani and to waste less of the good stuff.  This is a perfect fall color, the glitters reminds me of falling leaves or bonfire embers.

Influenster MamaVoxBox- Dr. Scholl's For Her Comfort Insoles

Hi Y'all!
Today I wanted to take a few minutes to tell you about another product I received complimentary from Influenster in my #MamaVoxBox, Dr. Scholl's For Her Comfort Inserts.

As soon as I pulled these out, my first thought was "YES, I've been needing these for my boots!".  My second thought was "NO, these are going to be way too small!", which was proved wrong.

China Glaze Autumn Nights

Happy Fall Y'all!
Today I have 2 polishes from the China Glaze Autumn Nights Fall 2013 Collection.

The formula and coverage was wonderful with both polishes and the colors are fantastic.  CG Gossip Over Gimlets is a very opaque silver foil with tiny gold flakes that you can barely see, but they add a nice warm tone to the silver.  CG Rendezvous With You is a very unique dark warm purple foil, I don't think I've seen this color before. 

This is 2 coats of CG Rendezvous With You and tips are one coat CG Gossip Over Gimlets.  Both of these are foil finish shimmers and they are gorgeous!
