Zoya Kelly

 Soooo I am in looove with Zoya. More specifically the Zoya brush. I'll have to make a comparison post later on so you guys know what I am talking about.. But onto some awesomeness!!

Indoors w/o Flash
Artificial Light w/ Flash
Sunlight w/ Flash
  So as you can see it is a bit darker on the nail than it is in the bottle but that it just fine with me because I looove this gray. I did two coats but those of you ladies with good hands can easily get away with one coat. I'd say after O.P.I this brand has my second favorite formula. It's smooth and even but not runny, not streaky. If you have not tried this brand, you totally should!!

Thanks for reading :),

China Glaze OMG

Hello :)

  There isn't much I want to say about this polish because the images speak for themselves. I am in love. This will be the start of a beautiful relationship for me... I don't care how "done" this might be because it is soooo cool looking... It's just awesomeness! It's Holos!

  As a base coat I used O.P.I Start to Finish which is a really smooth base to work with and it made for really easy application. I needed 3 coats for total opacity. This is very important, I did not use a top coat because it seemed to mellow out the effect a little so I went without. I've had it on for a whole day and no chips yet so that's good. I'm hooked :) Must have more!

Orly Green with Envy

 Oh Orly...

  This is my first Orly creme finish polish and I really, really loved it. It was smooth and creamy and not streaky. I was nervous for this color because of the shade of green it is... Well color me green... It's beautiful :)

Orly, Green with Envy
This is surprisingly accurate.

  To achieve total opacity I needed three coats of the color, but it was so easy to work with. This color dried really fast, smooth and shiny. But as always I topped it off with some Seche Vite. This reminds me of little presents :)

O.P.I Ski Teal we Drop

Hello :)

  I'm afraid I have no clever little title today... I just really wanted to wear this color because I saw it swatched on so many blogs and I loved it ever single time. So without further babbling...

O.P.I Ski Teal we Drop
Swiss Collection
Sorry for strange pic
  I feel like I need to apologize for my "not so good" picture... The sun wasn't out, it was pouring... In Florida? Shocker! :-\.... Anyways, there isn't much I can say about this color that hasn't been said. It's a beautiful, dark rich teal. The application is buttery smooth and it is opaque in two coats. This was all topped off with a coat of Seche Vite.
