Zoya Sarah

Hi, everybody!  (in my head hearing everyone respond Hi, Dr Nick!).  Sorry, two words into my post and I am already off on a tangent and having a Simpsons flashback. Oh boy, one of those days I suppose.   🙂

Today I have for you a shimmery, metallic red polish from Zoya called Sarah.  I’m pretty sure I got this one and a bunch of her friends during their Earth Day Polish Exchange when their bottles are between $4 and $5 for their normally $8 and $9 products.  It’s nice to get a bargain, don’t you think?  Sarah has a ton of sparkle in the right light and a glimpse of it in bad/no light. Really a shiny, bright polish with a bit of Christmas to the color.  For me you know this is a GREAT thing, since I am a cold weather lover and love to be reminded during the heat of summer that snow is only a couple months away.  🙂  The pic of the bottle was taken in full sunlight, the other photos are with indirect sunlight.

Cult Nails – Feel Me Up

Hello, everyone!   I hope you are having a great weekend so far.  Today I wanted to go for a very summery and bright polish, and one in a color I don’t usually wear: yellow.  This is where Feel Me Up from Cult Nails comes into the picture.  This is another polish from my recent 50% off haul from the Cult Nails site (celebrating her 200K likes on facebook, if I am not mistaken). So many great polishes and so much less than I would have spent without the sale!  🙂

Christmas Polish Present – Zoya Dream Box

I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday season with friends and family.  Now on to the Christmas polish presents!! 

This year I got some nail polish items from Santa to add to my stash.  One of my favorites is my Zoya Holo-day Dream Box.  It comes beautifully packaged with my three favorite colors from their Ornate Collection:  Aurora, Blaze and Storm.  These have had my eye since I saw the Ornate collection swatches, and I’m glad that Zoya saw fit to include them together in a box.

Blaze is described on the Zoya website as a full coverage, cool-toned medium mulberry red with a high concentration of micro fine diamond holographic glitter.  It really is a beautiful color and the sparkle from the holographic glitter is stunning.  This is two coats and a top coat.

Storm  is described a full coverage, holiday black with a high concentration of micro fine diamond holographic glitter. This one is particularly gorgeous as the glitter is wonderful complement to the deep black of the polish.  I think this one is my favorite of the three.  Two coats and a top coat are shown below.

Last, but not least, is Aurora, a full coverage, medium sugarplum purple flecked with a high concentration of micro fine diamond holographic glitter.  As with the other colors, the sparkle on this one is amazing, the best in the collection I’d even venture to say.  You can even see it indoors, so you know it’s a good one!  Two coats are shown below plus a top coat.

Next I decided to add snowflakes to this color using Wet ‘n Wild French Creme White.  We’ve had only a little bit of snow thus far this season and I hope that this will be my winter polish equivalent of a ‘snow dance’.

Thanks for stopping by for a bit.  With school starting week after next, I am hoping to do at least a post a week, and will do more if I can.  I appreciate all your likes and comments, and hope you all have a very happy and safe new year!!
