Maybelline Styled Out

Hello, everyone! Today I've got this nail polish I've had in my collection for almost four years to share with you!!!

Two coats of Maybelline Styled Out, without topcoat.

Two coats of Maybelline Styled Out, with topcoat.

A lovely blue metallic. With topcoat.

Maybelline Styled Out is a medium-dark dusty aqua-leaning blue with flaky foil shimmer and a satin finish.
This is one of those polishes that I'm kicking myself for not wearing sooner because it's so ridiculously pretty,
This polish has such a great formula; I still can't believe I've had it for almost four years and never wore it.
I unquestionably see myself wearing this again during the fall! I absolutely love this polish. ♥

Thanks for reading!!! XOXO

Zoya Sia & Sally Hansen Black and Blue

Hey, guys! What's up? Do let me know in the comment section down below.
Today, I have more swatches! If you haven't noticed, I've been trying to focus a bit more on swatching the nail polishes I have in my collection, because I have hundreds of polishes I've never swatched or worn! So, for today I have two polishes I swatched/wore together.

Zoya Sia and Sally Hansen Black and Blue.

Such a lovely combination.

Mmm. Multi-chromatic polish.

For this manicure. I only used one coat, yes, just one coat of Zoya Sia, which Zoya describes as a true, royal blue cream, and one coat of Sally Hansen Black and Blue which I describe as a deep, sheer teal with a multi-chromatic finish that shifts from green to blue, and purple to pink, depending on the lighting.

I will say that I'm very impressed by the formula Zoya Sia has! I wasn't expecting it to have such full coverage in just one coat!
Now, I was expecting Black and Blue by Sally Hansen to be like a sheer multi-chrome topcoat, so I wasn't surprised by it being sheer.
The one thing I don't like about Black and Blue is that it's a little streaky, but aside from that, it's a nice multi-chromatic polish that I definitely see myself wearing again this Fall.

Zoya Cece

Hello, everyone! Today I have the last polish from the Summer 2016 Zoya Seashells collection to share with you!

Cece by Zoya.

A beautiful green textured polish. ♥

Zoya describes Cece as a full impact green, textured PixieDust with a thin vein of gold creating a fizzy lemon-lime effect.
This polish certainly reminds me of lemons and limes, but of course, when I start imagining lemons and limes, I think about Sprite which is my favorite soda, although I don't really drink soda often, haha.
Anywho, for this polish, I only needed two easy coats like almost all the other polishes in the collection!
I really like the bright spring/summer vibes this polish gives off; it's very nice.

Thanks for reading!!! ♥ XOXO ♥

Zoya Levi

Hi, everyone! Today I have Zoya Levi to share with you!

Two coats of Levi by Zoya.

Such a beautiful gold textured polish.

So classy.

Zoya describes Levi as a beige gold textured PixieDust with medium sized holographic hex glitter.
I absolutely love this polish. It's so classy looking and has a pretty good formula. Honestly, at this point, I'm running out of things to say because all the polishes from this Seashells collection pretty much have the same kind of two coat formulas, (except for Bay.)
So yeah... I'm done talking about this polish. HAHA.
Tomorrow will be the last polish from the Zoya Summer 2016 PixieDust collection!
I will say that all the nail polishes in this collection were very pretty, and fun to swatch! But after tomorrow it will be back to more random nail polish swatches, and nail art! Aren't you excited!? Teehee.

Thanks for reading! XOXO

Zoya Zooey

Hi, guys! Today, I am sharing Zoya Zooey from the 2016 Summer PixieDust collection with you!

Two coats of Zooey by Zoya.

A beautiful vibrant pink textured polish.

Zoya describes Zooey as a classic pink, textured PixieDust laced with a fine thread of gold and medium sized holographic hexes for an added layer of dimension.
I love this, and I'm not usually a big fan of pink polishes, but I love this one.
The glitter and shimmer in this polish are just SO beautiful, it makes you want to stare at it all day long.
The formula was great as well it only needed two easy coats!

Thanks for reading!!! XOXO

Pokeball inspired nail art for INAD

Hello, everyone! Happy International Nail Art Day!!!
I honestly just found out today that it is INAD!

Because I found out on such short notice, I wasn't able to create anything in particular for the holiday, so what I have is the manicure I am currently wearing! My Pokeball inspired nail art! Haha.

Glittery Pokeball inspired nails!

Gotta catch em' all... lol.

I love glitter.

I was actually planning on posting these after I finished posting all of my swatches of the Zoya Summer PixieDust collection, but because today is INAD I decided to go ahead and post them now!
For the manicure, I used Zoya Aspen for the base and black and white acrylic paint for the details of the Pokeballs.
After I finished the details, (which were only a line and two dots) I went crazy with the glitter!
I applied Sinful Colors Decadent to the red part of the Pokeball, Color Club Snowflakes to the white part, Zoya Imogen to the black line, and layered a coat of Orly Shine On Crazy Diamond all over the nails. :)

Sorry, this post was rushed, but Happy International Nail Art Day! I hope you have an awesome one!

As always, thanks for reading! XOXO

Zoya Tilly

Hello, everyone! Today I have Zoya Tilly from the Seashells collection to share with you!

2 coats of Tilly by Zoya.

Ooh, so sparkly...

and textured.

Zoya describes Tilly as a starry gray, textured PixieDust with a small holographic glitter interwoven with a darker gunmetal.
Ah, this is such a beautiful silver textured polish!
I think the sparkles in this one really stand out compared to the others, and I think this one looks more textured compared to the others, as well.
The formula is nice, and like I said above, it only required two coats! I love the Zoya PixieDust polishes. ♥_♥

Thanks for reading!! XOXO

Zoya Bay

Hi, everyone! Today I'll be sharing Zoya Bay from the Summer 2016 PixieDust collection with you!

3 Coats of Bay by Zoya

I really like textured polishes...


Zoya Bay is described by Zoya as a sky blue, textured PixieDust with fine silver and gold glitter creating a dreamy effect.
Yeah, I would have to admit that this polish does look pretty dreamy, especially in person.
The only thing I was a little disappointed in was the formula. As I mentioned above, this polish required three coats to achieve full opacity, which isn't bad, but all the other polishes in the collection only needed two, so I was a little disappointed in how it was a bit more on the sheer side.
Overall, it's a very nice polish that I would surely recommend, and if I had to give it a rating out of 5 stars... I'd give it 4/5!

Thanks for reading! XOXO

Zoya Linds

Hello, everyone! Today I have a swatch of Zoya Linds to share with you!

2 coats of Linds by Zoya.

Beautiful red textured polish.


Zoya Linds is a cherry red, textured PixieDust with red and fuchsia glitter.
Another lovely textured polish by Zoya that has a good formula and only required two coats.
I honestly don't have much to say about this polish; I'm just glad the Zoya Pixiedusts aren't going anywhere!

Thanks for reading!! Xoxo
