Pink Wednesdays! Zoya Dana & Harley

Hello lovelies!

  Today I have another Two awesome Zoya polishes to show you. I'm always giddy to try new Zoya shades because I know I'll love it, especially if it is a Pink like the pretty Dana.

This is the bright and sassy Dana. This is so in your face Summer and Florida it's not even funny. Bright darker Pink creme and perfection to apply. This is from the same collection that brought us color like Robyn(looove) and Jancyn(who I do not own and totally want). My camera had a hard time with this one. Two coats. Oh .. and on Wednesdays we wear Pink, or you can't sit with us...

Harley is a great color. It is a very light Silvery Grey creamy shimmer. I also see some slight hints of Pink shimmer in it which take it out of the corpsey territory. I don't even have to say how much I love this right? It's right along the lines of Spring and of course it has a great Two- coat formula. My lamp brought out the Silvery tones in this but the last picture shows the warmth in this color.
Truest to color
I always enjoy a good Zoya swatching session. Their lacquer is perfection and one of those brands that can do no wrong by my nails :).

Yay for Zoya! I cannot wait to see the new Summer collectons in person!

Bettina Art Deco Yellow


  It's a Yellow polish I can wear and love!!! I had soo much fun with this mani that I actually posted a little teaser on Facebook and Twitter (DO you follow me yet? Find me on the right hand side bar). So here we go with some fun pics of a fun mani! I love all these colors. They remind me of Puerto Rico!
Fun with Primary (and some secondary :) colors
  It's officially Spring here at LTHP lol! Might as well be Summer with these nails! So Art Deco Yellow is the perfect primary Yellow creme. It's bright, it's creamy and most of all I can actually pull it off! Onto the formula... You're probably expecting to say that it was terrible and streaky and Blah Blah Blah.. WRONG! It's creamy, well pigmented and fairly smooth. I did need to use Three coats but they were an easy Three coats and it dried quickly. I love that this is a bright Yellow and that it does not look like I dipped my nails in Egg yolks hahaha! For the dots I used all Bettina colors and I cannot wait to wear them all because they are all creme and all excellent canvases for awesome nail art. For the dots I used dotting tools from Born Pretty Store. Art Deco Yellow was a gift from my lovely cousin :)! And this mani is so going under the Epic WIN tab for me!

I'm turning around on Yellow polish :)!

Muffin Monday!! Bettina Peppermint

Another Monday!

  Another pick by Miss Muffin. Today she went back to her thing by picking me a lovely shade of light Blue. Apparently she really liked this one too!
  So let me tell you lovelies about how much I love this shade! It is something along the line of O.P.I What's with the Catitude? but Bettina's Peppermint has a bit more Blue in it making it like One shade darker than WWtC?. Just the prettiest shade of Sky Blue creme. The formula on this polish is amazingly creamy and well pigmented. I used two coats of color for my mani. I really love the finished product. It is girly without being overly girly haha! This is one of those colors that make me smile! Epic WIN! Thanks to the bestie for sending this awesomeness my way!

Happy Muffin Monday!
