Zoya Awaken and Monet Swatches

(**Press Sample**)
Hey guys! 

 So, I figured... since I have the Zoya Tickled and Bubbly Summer collections in hand.... that maybe, just maybe... Now is a good time to post my Awaken & Monet Spring collection swatches. Can you say "slacker"? 

 photo 20140429-192244_zps7d2021e1.jpg

Zoya Dot- Dot is a classic ballerina pink creme-jelly. Even though it is really sqishy in finish, the formula was fairly opaque and easy to work with. I used Three thin coats for my swatch.

Zoya Cole- Cole is my favorite shade in this entire collection. She is a beautiful shade of perfect peachy creme-jelly. The formula on this color is amazing as well. I used Two thin and easy coats to for my swatch. Shades like this can be so universally flattering. I love how tan they make me look.

Zoya Rebel- Rebel is a soft sky blue with a subtle micro shimmer running through it. The shimmer gives a really pretty silvery/ golden, almost duochrome, effect. The formula on this color seems a bit sheer at first but is perfect in Two coats.

Zoya Dillon- Dillon is the seafoam sister of Rebel. The shimmer in Dillon appears more Silvery than Golden. I used Two thin coats.

Zoya Hudson- Husdon is the Orchid sister to Rebel and Dillon. The shimmer in this pretty appears more Golden. I used Two thin coats.

Zoya Brooklyn- Brooklyn is a frosty "White Gold" shade. Brooklyn is a little brush strokey. I used Two coats for my swatch.

Zoya Monet over Dot- Monet is a glitter topper. This polish is made up of iridescent hex glitters suspended in a, barely-there, pink jelly base. I had to add a boisterous amount of thinner to get this polish to work. As I received it, it was unusable. The formula was insanely thick and the glitter spread non existent. Once I added the thinner I was able to work with it, but it still gave me some troubles. IDK, I want to love it. t is really ethereal and looks so pretty in the bottle.... the formula leaves much to be desired.

 Overall, I am a bit disappointed in this collection. I'm not sure what, but something is missing for me. While the colors are really pretty, they don't feel special to me. I am SUPER disappointed in Brooklyn. A golden frost? Really?... And while I appreciate Zoya's effort with Monet, the execution of the topper fell flat for me. That formula is like glitter glue. 
 Strangely enough the shades I like best are the Two cremes, Dot and Cole.  Especially Cole... They are effortless and flattering. I almost wish they had released all the other shades as creme-jellies a'la Cole and Dot, I think that would have been a more interesting collection.

 Thankfully, I am stoked on the new Summer shades. I really think they redeemed themselves with the Summer colors. I hope I love them on the nail as much as I do in the bottles. How did you guys like the Awaken collection? Any faves here?

Delush Polish Spring Awakening Collection Swatches

(**Press Samples**)
Hey it's Monday!!! 

 If there was a way for me to skip Mondays all together, I would do so. I despise Mondays.I don't really have an exceedingly good reason for my hatred. It is not like I go out drinking every weekend and end up with wicked hangovers to fight off on Monday. Maybe Mondays just have bad cosmic juju around them or something... And now I sound crazy... Point being I am a complete crab-ass today :S. 
 Know what I am not crabby about though? This beautiful Spring collection by Delush Polish. For this release Delush did Six new glittery crellys that perfectly capture the season for me. This is one of those collections where I just adore every shade. They are all so dreamy and playful. They all look like little bottled Easter eggs. 

 photo Desktop14_zpsa723ce50.jpg
 All swatches are shown with a top coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top. 

Delush Polish Fleur de Peche- This beauty is a light peachy, creme-jelly base, with a perfect amount of subtle sparkle. I am IN LOVE with the accenting glitter blend she used for this base. I can pick out red and raspberry hexes, as well as gold and varying tones of green. I love that this polish looks so "floral". I also adore the base tone as it is insanely flattering. I used Two easy coats for my swatch. 
 photo DSCN8979_zps71983f9f.jpg

Delush Polish Basket Case- This shade is a clean White crelly base accented with tons of matte and neon glitter in smaller hexes and squares. This shade is so much fun and just awesome. The glitter colors and sizes look like a sprinkling of confetti. I used Two easy coats, though looking at this photo, I probably should have done a thin third coat. 
 photo DSCN9010_zpsfc827f4a.jpg

Delush Polish Medusa's Verde- This beauty is a light seafoam green base with a perfect amount of pearlescent shimmer. Accenting this base is a blend of golden, green and copper glitters in varying shapes and sizes. I used two easy coats for my swatch. 
 photo DSCN8953_zps840ff2da.jpg

Delush Polish I wanna Dance with some Bunny- Adorable... :D. This shade is a marshmallowy white crelly base. This one is packed with all kinds of interesting goodies. There are neon Pink hearts, large Aqua dots and large pastel yellow hexes. There are also smaller blue and pink hexes and teeny tiny yellow and pink matter glitters also. I used Two easy coats for my swatch.
 photo DSCN8928_zpsbbaa66ee.jpg

Delush Polish You Blue me Away- This pretty is a vivid sky blue crelly base with a subtle shimmer. Accenting this pretty base are dark blue, ccopper, violet, pastel yellow, pink, green and golden glitters in varying shapes and sizes. I used Two easy coats for my swatch. 
 photo DSCN8919_zpseba2375f.jpg

Delush Polish Destined for Grapeness- I can't ever get enough of these lilac crelly blends. This one features a light shimmery base accented by violet, white, blue, lavender, pink and silver glitters in varying hex sizes. I used Two easy coats for my swatch, 
 photo DSCN8896_zps2528a09e.jpg

 All of these shades have amazing formulas. I was so happy that I could get away with just two coats of each shade. They all have a fantastic spread of glitter and were very easy to work with. I love that Delush did a mix of shimmery and creme bases for this collection. I am a huge fan of shimmering crelly bases, they look so delicate and beautiful. 


 I am loving this entire collection. If I had to choose faves I'd go with Wanna Dance with some Bunny, Fleur de Peche and Medusa's Verde :D. Which are you loving most?

Such Magical, Much Pixies

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Humpday!

 Did I mention I was on a serious textured kick lately? I mean, seriously... I just cannot stop reaching for textures every time I go to do any mani I intend on wearing for more than a few hours. I am a BIG fan of the ease of texture polishes. Meaning you just need a base coat, one or two coats of a texture and you're done. They dry really quickly and, to me, always look AMAZING.
 This past weekends mani was all about the beautiful Zoya Magical Pixies for Spring 2014. This Trio is made up of Three gorgeous sparkling textures. They all feature a strong holographic twinkle, and lots of chunky glitter. 
Zoya Magical Pixies photo DSCN8568_zpsf9253acc.jpg
  On my thumb and index nails I wore Zoya Lux. Lux is a soft, rose quartz micro sparkle texture base accented by prismatic rose hexes ranging from small to CHUNKY :D. Even though this color is soft and feminine it packs a huge sassy punch thanks to the super sparkly finish. 
 On my middle nail I wore Zoya Cosmo. Cosmo is the bright Silver sister of Lux. She is basically the same concept, but in an insanely beautiful Diamond- Silver color. Last, but not least, is Zoya Vega which is the Sky Blue version of Lux and Cosmo
 These three beauties have a very dense formula. They are very, VERY packed with sparkles. They really do resemble crushed precious stones. I used Two coats of each color. A light hand is best to ensure an even spread of the glitter all over the nail. 
 Removal of these can, and probably will be a pain. For that reason I wore the OPI peel off base coat underneath. I am glad to say that these pretties wore like IRON for SEVEN days, and I was still able to peel them off when I was ready for a change. 

 These are the sparkliest of all the PixiDusts that have been released, and some of my favorites. I love how chunky they are and how much they sparkle. I also loved the dense formula because I could definitely get away with one coat in days where I might be rushing. 

 These retail for $10.00/ color. Did you pick any of these up? What are your thoughts on these sparklies? 

Happy Wednesday!

Fit for a Sea Goddess

(**Press Samples**)
Good morning and happy Tuesday! 

 Today I want to share some cute pairings I wore over the past few weekends. All of these beautiful shades come from the China Glaze Sea Goddess collection. The Sea Goddess collection is made up of Six new textured polishes ranging from super sparkly, to subtle and adorable. I really loved these shades and I loved wearing them. 
 Ever since the O.P.I peel-off base coat came out I have been on a textured polish kick. I love that when I am done or ready for a change I can just peel my textures off and not worry about removal at all. 


China Glaze Tail me Something- A stunning shade of micro- glitter, light Purple. This pretty is sooo sparkly it is almost blinding. The formula seems to be made up of nothing but micro glitter and small hexagonal glitters in a beautiful shade of Purple. I used Two easy coats of this color. I paired this sparkler with China Glaze Sand Dollar Make you Holla which is a creamy White textured base base accented with small glitters in a rainbow of colors. This is definitely the ultimate "cake batter" nail polish with that awesome texture. I used Three coats of this shade. 
 photo DSCN8242_zps5fdc6773.jpg


 My next pairing was all about Pink. I went with China Glaze Shell we Dance which is a beautiful shade of light Raspberry texture shimmery goodness. This pretty has a " shimmery base" accented with small raspberry toned glitter. I used Two coats of this pretty. The light pink shade is China Glaze Wish on a Starfish. I LOOOOOVE this soft shade of pink which is accented by an amazing flash of golden duochrome. Very "seashell pink" feeling. I used Three thin coats of this beauty. 
 photo DSCN8308_zps29969489.jpg


And last but not least is this pairing of mermaid-y proportions. China Glaze Seahorsin' Around is the answer to anyone who was praying for a textured version of Zoya Charla (O.P.I Catch me in your Net and all is dupes). This baby is a Teal foil with a slight Golden duochrome. The finish is very intense, sparkly and just beautiful. The only downside to this shade is that it can stain your nails. I used Three thin coats. For a soft contrast I used China Glaze Teal the Tide Turns. This pretty is a creamy "seafoam-teal" creamy texture base accented by small mossy green glitters. I used Three thin coats of this shade as well. 
 photo DSCN8148_zps907bfb77.jpg

 I really adore the mix of extremely sparkly, and creamy textures in this collection. I also love the theme behind it. I definitely get an oceanic feel from them, very "treasure chest". I love that all of these are unique in my collection. In a sea of textured polishes, these still manage to stand out for me. These have been out for some time now and should be available where ever China Glaze is sold. 

I loved wearing these as pairs. Do you have any faves from this collection?

#CFLBeautyBlogger Autism Awareness April Link Up

(**Press Sample**)
Good morning beauties! 

 We interrupt this scheduled LTHP vacay to go Blue. Today's post is a special link up between the Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida. Since April is Autism Awareness month we decided to come together with some Blue- themed posts for our readers. If you guys are long time readers of this Blog you may be familiar with my Blue looks during the month of April. I was super busy this year and missed World Autism Awareness day, which was April 2nd :(. 
 photo DSCN8662_zps797e65b8.jpg
 I decided to work in Blue, Yellow and Red, inspired by the Autism Awareness puzzle piece logo. The Blue shade is KBShimmer Sky Jinks. This shade is a PERFECT shade of vivid Sky Blue creme. The formula on this color left me a little speechless. It was buttery smooth and very pigmented. The best part is that it did not stain my nails. 
 The yellow shade is KBShimmer Chick Me Out. This shade is a perfect primary Yellow creme. The formula was really very good. The first coat was a little streaky, but it evened out just fine. For the zig-zags  and chevrons I used Nail Vinyls. On my middle nail I did a dotted gradient using Cult Nails Tempest and Chick me Out. I also did a glitter placement gradient on my middle nail, as well as some glitter placement on my ring and index nails using a loose glitter pot from ??? :) lol. 
 For the glittery red zig- zags on my Pinkie I used a Red glitter striper from Stripe Rite. I finished my look off with two coats of Seche Vite.

Cult Nails Intriguing and Cruisin' Nude V- Gap Nail Art Look

(**press sample**)
Good morning!

 Today I have a simple look for you guys :D. It seems lately my nail art has been going by the motto "less is more". You guys know how much I love crazy nail art looks. I love working on them and I love wearing them. But for some reason, I've really been into simplicity lately. The types of look that don't take much work or time to complete, yet still look effortlessly chic. I seem to go through phases ;).
cn int and cn look photo DSCN7937_zpsd455a4e3.jpg
 This look started with a base of Cult Nails Intriguing of the Casual Elegance collection. To create the V-gaps I used the single- chevron Nail Vinyls and Cult Nails Cruisin' Nude. I really liked the contrast of the Nude tone against the beautiful shade of subtle holo Periwinkle. Intriguing is a bit of a chameleon and can look a bit different depending on skin tone. I love shades that have this quality. I finished my look off with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Cult Nails Casual Elegance Collection Swatches

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Humpday!! 

  Today I want to share my swatches of the newest Cult Nails Collection, Casual Elegance. I want to say a million words about this Trio. The colors are superb. The formulations, as usual, are perfection. This collection really hit a soft spot for me and my obsession with the color Purple. I think this collection hit a soft spot for many gals actually. So much so, that the pre-order  is completely sold out on the Cult Nails site, and with good reason. In this release there is a beautiful creme, a painfully sparkly micro glitter and a dreamy holographic shade. Could it be possible that such a small release is already going to the top of my list for 2014 releases? You bet your booty it is! But Purple is my spirit animal.. So I am biased ;).  
CN Casual Elegance photo CultNails3_zps4d50c208.jpg
 All swatches are shown with a top coat of Cult Nails Wicked fast for shine, smoothness and a full finished look. 

Cult Nails Winter's Light- This beauty is made up of micro Amethyst Purple glitter suspended in a Red-toned Purple jelly base. The application of this glitter is very easy, the glitter spreads evenly and the base is not sticky. This shade can be layered or built up to full opacity. I chose to wear mine alone. I used Three thin and easy coats for my swatch. Winter's Light dries with a little bit of a gritty finish, a top coat will remedy that. I am so in love with the way the glitter in this polish twinkles perfectly to create a crushed Amethyst illusion. I also really like that the jelly base is a tad lighter than the glitters as it gives a slight jelly- sammich effect. 

Cult Nails Casual Elegance- Lilac.Creme.Perfection. No seriously, this shade.. Ok, this shade.. I LOVE a good lilac creme... This one is as good as it gets. I love that Casual Elegance is a true, clean, Lilac creme. There are no undertones of Pink, and it does not lean too Blue. The formula is just amazing on this shade. I could have gotten away with one coat if I had applied it more patiently. Casual Elegance has a thick but very manageable formula. It is not thick, goopy or streaky. I used Two flawless coats for my swatch. 

Cult Nails Intriguing- This baby is truly a gem. I could literally, sit here all day and type out a dissertation on how much I love this color and why. But I wont subject you guys to that ahah. SO, Intriguing is a magical shade of Periwinkle Blue with a dreamy linear holo effect. The holo is a subtle, but present. This shade is perfect for when you are feeling dainty, but want a hint of something special. Intriguing has an amazing formula that glides on like butter and is opaque in Two easy coats. Of course the day I chose to swatch these, it was also raining very heavily... I hope to get Sunlight PIc of this beauty soon. I think it deserves that courtesy haha. 
The pre-order may be done but be on the lookout for the individual release of these shades. Don't worry, you have not missed out just yet :D. And trust me, you don't want to miss out! I have always been a fan of Cult Nails' aesthetic and vibe, but they really hit it out of the park with these Three shades. I need more micro glitters from Cult Nails.. Maria if you are reading... How about a kick ass Emerald next haha? 

 Make sure to follow Cult Nails on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates on this collection, promos and more!

O.P.I Brazil Beach Sandies- Liquid Sand Mini Set Look

(**Press Samples**)

Hiiiii and happy Thursday! 

  I swear I am not making a habit of these long pauses between posts. As you guys know, we just recently moved. And we all know how much FUN that nonsense can be *insert sarcasm here*. I never imagined that unpacking, sorting and organizing 1,500+ bottles of polish would be such an ordeal. It was... I am now on day four of setting up my little polish corner. I must say it is coming along really nicely. It will be an excellent creative space once it is done. If you follow me on Instagram you can see the progress :D (@L_T_H_P)
  Today I want to share this look I wore a couple of weeks ago using the Liquid Sands that O.P.I released with the Brazil Spring/Summer 2014 Collection. These four beauties were released as a Four-Pack Mini set. I, for one, am BUMMED that these are minis because they are so damn BEAUTIFUL! I chose to rock them as a skittle look accented by an accent textured gradient nail. 
opi brazil sands photo DSCN6591_zps1bb6abbe.jpg
 On m index nail I wore O.P.I Samba-dy Loves Purple. This shade is a beautiful medium Red- toned Purple texture. I'd venture to say it is a fantastic shade of shimmering textured Radiant Orchid, right on trend. This shade was the most sheer and did best in Three thin coats. That said, I ended up doing Three thin coats of each shade, even though the rest could have done with two coats. On my Ring nail I am wearing O.P.I What's a Little Rainforest?. This shade is a stunning shade of vivid Sky Blue, practically metallic in finish. This one was my favorite. On my Pinkie I am wearing O.P.I I'm Brazil Nuts Over You This shade is a fun Red with Pink undertones and beautiful contrasting Purple shimmer. The hints of Purple are visible even when the color is fully dry. On my Thumb and Middle nail I used O.P.I You're so Flippy Floppy. This shade is my other top pick here. This shade of Yellow is really warm and perfectly shimmery. 
 For the gradient nail I used I'm Brazil Nuts Over You and You're so Flippy Floppy. I used the same technique I would use for any other gradient. I "painted" the color onto a bit of cosmetic sponge and then "bounced" the sponge lightly over my nail until the color was built up to my liking. The biggest pain was the clean up. I also noticed that sponging the color on compromised the wear of that particular nail. It was chipping quicker than the others. 
opi brazil sands photo DSCN6640_zps21407be3.jpg
 IDK what is going on with my skin in this pic lololol... Anyhow, I wore these for about a week or so. I loooove the shades. I really do wish that they would release these in full- sized versions. I didn't run into any issues with application. Personally, I don't mind the mini brush, it did just fine. I really do love these shades. I hope they release more textures like these. 

 Thanks for stopping by today! I'm hoping to be done with my corner today. I'm SOO ready to be done haaha.

Friday Swatch Spam

(**Press Samples**)
Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey! 

 Happy Friday! This is my first official blog post from my new home. I am so excited about our new place. Many of you have been asking about California. What happened? Did I ever make it? etc... Long story short; we made it to Cali and were there for about Three days. We had an emergency and had to head back to Sarasota, Florida (i.e "home").
  Finally, back in January, my husband got an amazing job offer in Boca Raton, Florida so that is where we ended up. LTHP is now an East Coast Florida gal :D. I am VERY excited to sample the beaches in the area. Back in Sarasota, we were really close to Siesta Key. Which is amazing beyond words.. But I miss the Atlantic, being from Puerto Rico and all ;). 
 So, since I've yet to actually unpack and set up my polishing area... I've got some swatch spam for you today. My nails have been nekkid for about a week and a half now. Thankfully, there were no breaks during the move.

#NailArtFeb Californails Challenge Day 28: Galaxies

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Friday!!! 
  Yesterday I was stuck on what to say... Today I am overflowing with words of excitement. Why is that? Because I took on a nail art challenge and actually saw it through to the end! Today's look is the final prompt in the Californails "Totally Doable- I have a Life Challenge". Day 28 calls for galaxies. 
  I was suuuuper excited to take on this prompt. Galaxy manicures are incredibly fun to work on for me. I wanted to depart from the other galaxy looks I have posted. For this one I went with a Blue galactic feel, instead of Black how I had done for the other two galactic looks I've done. I can honestly say that this is definitely my fave galaxy manicure I have done to date. I was surprised at how fast I managed to get these done too. Normally I tend to overthink my galaxies, for these I just let them flow from me and the results were wonderful.
Galaxies photo DSCN7496_zps2c236ca2.jpg
 For this galaxy look I started with a base of Zoya Dream. For the galactic elements I used Lime Crime Milky Ways(soft off White), Bettina Vanity(pale Sky Blue), Milani Raspberry Delight(vivd Pink creme), OCC Man by Man(amazing Teal jelly shimmer), Zoya Seraphina(shimmery White) and Catrice Heavy Metallilac(metallic shimmer Purple). To create the galactic look I used little tiny bits of cosmetic wedge sponge. I cut them into tiny pieces that I could control with tweezers to get more control of where the color was being sponged. It also helped me keep a light hand when applying color. I used a toothpick to create the little dot "stars". I finished my galaxies off with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top. 

 And with this look the challenge is complete! I am so happy to have taken this challenge on. It reminded me of what I am capable of when it comes to nail art. It also reminded me that now I then I need to push myself :D. I will be doing a post soon with a re-cap of all the looks to see them all together. 
Californails Feb Challenge photo Screenshot2014-02-01at115556AM_zps2db93afc.png
 I hope you guys enjoyed this post and this challenge. I had so much fun working on these prompts. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Thanks for coming by!

#NailArtFeb Californails Challenge Day 14: Match OOTD

(**Press Samples**)
Good evening loves!! 

 I'm trying to catch up on the prompts for the "Totally Doable- I have a life challenge" so I decided to post my OOTD prompt today as well. I won't even lie, I've been wearing my PJ's all day, every day for like Two weeks now... So I matched my nails to my PJ pants... yes, I did.
 photo DSCN6787_zpse50b1eaa.jpg
 I started with a base of Nicole by O.P.I  This Blue is so You. This beautiful shade of Navy Blue creme was a great match for my PJ pants. I freehanded some horizontal stripes using Nicole by O.P.I Sweet Surrender. I finished my nails off with a coat of Seche Vite. 
 photo DSCN6758_zps289729ff.jpg
Ta-dah!!!! PJ Nails :D hahaa. This is quite possibly the most lazy mani I've ever done haha. That said, I king of dug it a lot. My next prompt is "Studs", which I am excited about :D.

My Ultimate Mermaid Nails with Inglot Spangles

(**Press Samples**)
Hello and happy Thursday! 

 Today I want to share some of my favorite nails I have ever done. I'm calling these my ultimate mermaid nails. Back when I first received my set of Inglot nail and body spangles, I just knew this look had to happen. I'd also done a "disco mermaid" version of these some months ago for LTHP's birthday. These though!! THESEEEEE!!!! 
Ultimate Mermaid Nails photo DSCN6188_zps58c3c058.jpg
 For these ultra mermaid nails I started with a base of Milani's Blue Zoom. Once my base color was top coated and dry I started to work on my spangle placements. I worked on one nail at a time. I used a slow drying top coat and set my spangles in an overlapping pattern. Once I was done placing the spangles on all my nails I did a final coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top top coat to seal my "scales". 

 I used Inglot Spangles in #23. These pretties have an amazing duochrome effect. They all shift from Sapphire Blue to Emerald Green and Copper at extreme angles. These were the perfect colors and shape for this look I had been dreaming of for months. These Inglot spangles are also very easy to work with :D. 
Ultimate Mermaid Nails photo DSCN6171_zpscc6b0f73.jpg
 I am so madly in love with how these turned out. They may have even come out better than I had envisioned. It is always such a great feeling to see a mani I had been wanting do come to life beautifully. 

Thanks for stopping by!!! I must go back in the water before my tail dries out though ;).

Milani High Speed Fast Dry Shades for Spring 2014

(**Press Sample**)
Happy Thursday! 

  Today I want to share some swatches of the new Milani High Speed Fast Dry shades. In terms of Milani polishes, the high speed fast dry line is one of my favorites. The colors always have incredible formulas. They also really do dry quickly, and are fantastic for nail art. These three shades are definite wins for me :D!
Mil Spring photo Feb22014_zps9a4fdcc6.jpg

Milani Aqua Brisk- This shade is such an epic win! Aqua Brisk is your quintessential "Baby Blue" creme. The formula on this shade is very impressive. This shade could be one coat, but I did use Two. I am SO madly in love with this shade. I've been wearing this color as a pedi for about Four weeks now and it still looks great.  
Milani Aqua Brisk photo DSCN5647_zpsb46fd38f.jpg

Milani Sangria Rush- This shade is a beautiful, red toned Plummy creme shade. As with Aqua Brisk, this shade also has an amazing formula. I used Two coats for my swatch. 
Sangria Rush photo DSCN6044_zpsf1814b7f.jpg

Milani Blue Zoom- This shade is such an epic amount of WIN! Blue Zoom is a fantastic shade of light Cobalt Blue. The formula on this shade is slightly crelly and an absolute dream to work with. If you were/are a fan of Revlon's Royal, you will LOVE Blue Zoom. This shade also reminds me a bit of YSL's Blue Majorelle. I used Two coats for my swatch. 
Blue Zoom photo DSCN6125_zpsf405c2ce.jpg
 I love everything about these polishes. From the flat brush, to the buttery smooth formulations... They are just perfect. These also dry with a high shine and adding a top coat only makes them look even more amazing. 

 These shades are available now in CVS, Walgreens and Meijer stores as well as online. They retail for $4.99. 

Thanks for stopping by!!
