O.P.I DS Tourmaline & O.P.I DS Titanium for Fall 2014

(**Press Samples**)
 Hello beautiful readers!! Check out these beautiful new additions to the O.P.I DS line of polishes!! Every year O.P.I release Two new shades in this range, usually around time for Fall. While last year was all about textures, this year is all about twinkling sparkle.

O.P.I DS Tourmaline- This beauty is a dense, shimmering and almost metallic vibrant Pink accented by small holographic and opalescent hex glitter.
O.P.I DS Titanium-  This shade is an amazing graphite grey based version of DS Tourmaline. The small hexes really jump out in this shade because of that beautiful darker base color.
Both of these shades have marvelous formulas. They are both very dense and easy to apply. I had great coverage at Two coats. I finished them off with a generous coat of Seche Vite as they have a bit of a texture when they dry.  These shades are available now at O.P.I retailers.

How I Wore It: The Cirque Burlesque Collection

(**Press Samples**)
 Happy Wednesday beautiful readers! Today I want to share this look which features Four beautiful new holographic shades by Cirque Nail Polish. This release is inspired by all things Burlesque. It was an absolute must to do something sexy and to find a way to wear all Four of them at once. They are entirely marvelous, and insanely beautiful. 

Cirque Boudoir- This beauty is a classic Fall plum with the added twist of a beautiful holographic finish. 
Cirque Harlow- A lovely shade of antique gold with an amazing holographic finish. 
Cirque Josephine- An unique shade of deep evergreen with an amazing holographic finish. 
Cirque Trocadero- A classic royal blue with a holographic finish.

  For my Index and Middle nails I brought all Four shades together in a four-way gradient by using [THIS] method.  My Ring finger was stamped using a Bundle Monster plate and some Konad Black special polish. I accented my Pinkie and Thumbs with simple touches of Black stones. 
  All of these shades have a perfect formula. They were all opaque in Two easy and perfectly smooth coats. The Burlesque collection is available now from CirqueColors.com and each shade retails for $13.
Is this not the sexiest little collection you've seen in some time? It definitely is for me, I just love them!

How I Wore It: Zoya Ultra PixieDust Collection- Fall 2014


Happy start of a new week my beauties! Today is all about the new Zoya Ultra PixieDust shades for Fall 2014. This release is made up of Three new, Red- based, textured and glittery pretties. These shades are classic for the Fall season, with the added twist of texture and sparkle. For my look I brought them all together in a swirly freehanded design.  This design was painted over a base of Zoya Sari. 
 Although you can mainly distinguish Two shades, I did use all Three colors. I was slightly disappointed that the contrast between Zoya Ariana and Zoya Oswin was not greater. However, if you look pretty hard you can see that Oswin is slightly more matte and textured than both Ariana and Noir. I dig this look though. It was fun to work on :D. 

Zoya Oswin- Zoya describes Oswin as a true red textured PixieDust with crimson Mega Hex particles. She is the densest and more textured of the Three. For me, she was also the only one to dry fully matte. 
Zoya Arianna- Zoya describes Arianna as a true red textured PixieDust with crimson Mega Hex particles. She is more berry-toned and jelly in finish. The texture particles are not as dense in Arianna
Zoya Noir- Zoya describes Noir as deep, vampy plum textured PixieDust with red Mega Hex particles. 

The crimson hexes make an appearance in all Three of these shades and tie them together. The formulas were easy to work with and packed with sparkle. I only wish there was a bigger difference between Arianna and Oswin. That said, they are all lovely shades and I am happy to see more textured vamp shades. 
These pretties are available from Zoya.com and retail for $10/ shade.

What are your thoughts on these PixieDusts?
