Zoya PixiDusts in Arabella and Sunshine and Catching Up

(**Press Samples**)
Good evening!! 

 LTHP is officially in Cali-land!! I wanted to do a quick post to share with you this pairing I did with two of Zoya's newer PixiDust shades. I went with Arabella and Sunshine. I rocked this mani for about Five days and my nails still looked perfect come removal day! I have said it a million times before and I will say it again.. Zoya has this texture thing DOWN!!! They make such beautiful shades. I love how they play with "metallic matte" bases and plain shimmering matte bases. These pretties have amazing formulas and could have almost been one coat each. I did Two thin coats to get a really sparkly effect. 
  Arabella is a beautiful Raspberry toned textured polish. The base almost appears matte metallic and the shimmer in this pretty compliments the base. Meaning, the twinkle is Pink and lights up the deep, saturated Raspberry base beautifully. Sunshine is an amazingly saturated shade of Navy Blue matte base with tons of Silver Sparkle to light up the dark base. These are just beautifully executed and looked amazing together.  In the photo above they were fully dry so you guys can get the full effect of the matte/ sparkle goodness.

 Here about 20 minutes has passed after application, as you can see there is still some shine to them here, but still beautiful as ever.

 PS: I've been rocking Carter and Dhara on my toes for about four weeks now and they are still looking amazing! I think out of all the textures the Pixi Dust line has to be some of my faves. They are just beautiful and the wear is incredible!! 

  The move from Florida to Cali was very smooth, long, but smooth. We are now in Big Bear Lake, California. For the next few weeks I will be blogging out of a small cabin in the woods, and have NO nail stuff with me. The rest of out stuff is being shipped here and then will go into storage until we find a home. I has a sad.. However, I do have a few fashion-y, make-up-y posts that I can share.. So I'm thinking of doing an "LTHP Fashion week" since I don't have much nail material to blog with at the moment. I hope you guys bear (bare?) with me during this transition period. LTHP will dabble in all things girly and awesome while I wait for the rest of my nail babies to get t me. There is a lot that Mr. LTHP and I have to get done to start our new lives off right in Cali. SO, yeah... LOTS of changes, bit changes. 
 I'm excited and nervous, I really want things to go well for us out here in California as it is an area we have been wanting to be in for years. 

Thanks for stopping by today loves!

  2. Good luck! And take all the time you need to get settled and started off on the right foot -- moving that far is a huge undertaking! We're going to do it next summer -- from the mid-Atlantic to the Midwest. I both can't wait and am dreading it (well, the moving part, anyway). I would be totally interested in a post on how you packed all your nail polish and make-up so that it would survive the trip... and find it again once it got to you. Any organizing/packaging tips would be greatly appreciated! ^_^

  4. Big Bear's a nice place. A little sparse on shopping opportunities, but nice. I highly advise learning to layer your clothing, and get some flannel sheets and several blankets for your bed. The snow can get kinda high up there. :)
