Zoya Enchanted Holiday 2016 Collection Swatches and Review


Hey Guys! Today I have my swatches and review of Zoya's Enchanted Holiday 2016 Collection. One of my friends on Instagram informed me that they were having a 70% off sale on Black Friday. I have never tried this brand before so this was the perfect opportunity. The collection at regular price is $60.00 and I paid $18.00. What a steal right? After I placed my order on 11/25/16 I received my order almost two weeks later, which is not bad considering the amount of orders they had. When my order arrived my nail polish was in a small box with lots of paper for cushion to protect the nail polish from breaking. At first glance I knew these polishes were going to look amazing. Out of 6 polishes four are PixieDust (textured) and the other two are color-flips (shifting colors). I can see why they named this collection Enchanted, these colors are dark, sparkly, and hypnotizing. Down below I have names and swatches of each polish. Until next time! Happy Holidays!



Elphie

Elphie is an captivating emerald green polish with sugary green PixieDust matte sparkle formula. The first coat of Elphie was a little streaky. On the second coat the polish covered the whole nail. Finally, on the third coat the polish was fully opaque. Also, Elphie had a lot more shine than Lorna, but both are beautiful. No top coat was applied.


Olivera

Olivera is a deep dark hypnotizing color-flip metallic with an indigo base that shifts from green to purple. Olivera was almost opaque in one coat but you will need two for it to be fully opaque. This was the only one of my swatches that had a top coat applied it because I wore it for three days. With in those three days there was no chipping.



Lorna

Lorna is a berry shade with the sugary sparkle of PixieDust. This polish also has a matte finish. The first coat was a little streaky. I got full coverage on the second coat but I applied one more coat to make it fully opaque. No top coat was applied.



Waverly

Waverly is a deep blue polish that also has the sugary sparkle PixieDust matte Formula. Like the other three PixieDust this polish was also streaky on the first coat. The second coat gave me full coverage and on the third coat it was fully opaque. No top coat applied.


Alice

Alice is a alluring periwinkle with magenta blue sparkle with the PixieDust matte formula. Surprisingly the first coat was not as streaky as the other PixieDust. Alice is fully opaque in two coats. No top coat was applied.



Saint

Saint is a fanciful color-flip metallic that shifts from periwinkle to magenta. I wouldn't describe Saint as streaky but more sheer like. You will need at least three coats in order for it to be opaque. You can wear this shade depending on how light or dark you want it. No top coat was applied.

JLB Nail Polish Swatches & Review

Hey guys! Today I have my swatches and review of the 4 piece nail lacquer collection set by JLB Cosmetics. I haven't heard of or tried this brand before. While doing research on this company, I found very little information on them. Therefore, I will just get on with the review. I got this polish set from Ross for $5.99. I normally stay away from buying nail polish sets like these because I'm always skeptical of the quality. When I saw how cute these little polish bottles were I thought I would give them a try. I must admit I've never seen nail polish bottles like these before, they remind me of perfume bottles. Although, they are pleasing to the eye the brushes were a little uncomfortable to use. The brush was short and the top of it felt like a door knob. As a result, it was kind of hard to get a good grip on it. But, I've had more difficult times while painting my nails. In addition, these polishes had a slightly strong smell, but after a while it went away. Howeve…

Nail Therapy? Let's get Personal!

Hey guys! welcome to my blog. I started this blog a year ago along with when I first started Instagram(IG). I was feeling a little overwhelmed with the blog and my IG page, so I decided to just focus on having fun with IG. Its been almost a year later and let me tell you, its been one heck of a ride. I have had so much fun meeting nice people, participating in nail art challenges, and experimenting with new nail art techniques. I never knew there were so many other people out there like me who loves nail polish. Some people may wonder why would any one love nail polish so much. Well, I love nail polish because there's not a size on the bottle, I don't have to squeeze into it, it just goes right on my nail. I wear nail polish because it may be a special occasion or maybe it just makes me feel relaxed after a long day of taking care of my son and cleaning the house. Here is a picture of some nail art that I did on January 14, 2016. My son Malachi had to have surgery on the next …

EA Polish Swacthes & Review

Hello everyone! For today's post I'm going to be sharing with you my swatches and review of indie polish brand EA Polish. I've been following EA Polish on Instagram for quite some time. Therefore, when CEO/Founder Ellyse contacted me to do a review for the company, I was very excited! What intrigued me the most about EA Polish is how it came about. After becoming a mother, Ellyse's friends and family started inquiring about her formally fabulous nails. Not only did Ellyse decided to do something about it, she started her own nail polish company. If anyone knows anything about the joys and sometimes woes of motherhood, is me. I'm pretty sure some of you guys can relate. Being a mom can be challenging at times, we have a 1,000 things to do and so little time to get them done. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy being a wife and a mother. However, it can become overwhelming to the point where you began to neglect the simple things in life. For example, getting your hair d…
