Zoya Naturel Satins 2015 Transitional swatches and review




Hey readers!! I hope everyone is enjoying their snow day if you are being dumped with it. Here on the East Coast a lot of us are being hit by Juno so if you are one of the states who's getting hit especially hard, please stay safe!!

I have my swatches and review on the new Zoya Satins, the transitional collection for Spring 2015. Zoya's new "satin" formula is described on their site as " a hybrid between matte and glossy polishes and is not intended to be worn with a top coat" I was immediately excited for these as soon as I saw the bottle shots. The shades are so pretty and are perfect for easing you into the pastels of spring without being too light. I love how they went with a more muted approach with the shades.

KBShimmer: Men are from Mars-ala and some Valentine Nail Art




Good afternoon readers!! I have quite a fun little post for you today!! I have a polish inspired by the new Pantone Color of the Year, Marsala!! 


Now this is a shade you will either love or hate. I'm kind of in the middle. I don't know whether I like it or not. When someone says the word "marsala", chicken marsala comes to mind. Yeah, you can tell I always have food on the brain. A far stretch from last year's color of the year which was Radiant Orchid, this is a much more toned down choice I think. 

Now with that being said, when done right it can be GORGEOUS!! Take KBShimmer for example, Christy created a beautiful Marsala hued holo, aptly titled 'Men are from Mars-ala'. Ready for the brush shot? I'm having so much fun with these!

L'Oreal: Masked Affair swatches and review


*purchased myself

Well hello, dear readers!! Long time no talk!! It's going to take me a bit to get back into my mojo of talking to you all! How have you all been? I've only been gone for a month and a half "ish" but it seems longer!! I have lots of polishes to show you and I can't wait for you to see them!!! I'm trying out some new things on the blog by means of my photography so please let me know what you think of my new swatch pics!!! 

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!! A lot has happened with my family!! We added a new member ( of the fuzzy type, you'll get to meet him at the end of this post ^_^ )

Today I'm bringing you the elusive 'Masked Affair' from L'Oreal. Now I say elusive because apparently this has been a tough polish for some to come by. I was able to find mine at my local Rite Aid which is a wonder in itself because when you live in Podunk-ville, you get ERRRYTHANG last. Super frustrating. 

'Masked Affair' is part of the newly released Dark Sides of Grey collection. Is it worth the hype? We shall see.........
