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!

Happy Saturday everyone!! 

  I just wanted to do a quick post to let you guys know that I am over on the Nail It! magazine website with a guest post. I went with a texture theme, since I am slightly obsessed with this trend. I also did a look with some of the shades from the Cult Nails In the Garden Collection, for the ladies who do not like textures at all. I hope you guys like these looks! I had a lot of fun working on these. 
To find out the details behind these Three looks, just head on over to nailitmag.com. You can also read a short interview [HERE].

 I've had a minor setback here (I am also waiting on a middle nail break to grow out)... Ever have something happen to you that makes you feel really old for some reason? So, yesterday.. I was having a coughing fit... and I threw my lower back out  -___-. I mean, REALLY? Who does that? lolol... Who throws their back out from a coughing fit? Anywho, I'm taking it easy and hoping for a speedy recovery because I have lots I want to get done. I am also dying to play with my new Pueen stamping plates!! I have not had a chance to get into those yet, the designs are SO adorable!!

I hope you guys will check out my post for nailitmag.com! Happy Saturday everyone!
