FingerPaints Masquerade Affair Collection

*PRESS SAMPLE*

Today I'd like to share the Masquerade Affair collection, new for fall 2014, from FingerPaints. Here's a peek:
From thumb to pinky: two coats each of Masked Beauty, Ball Gown Glamour, Queen for a Night, Dance Til Dawn, Masked Beauty

These fun metallics are certainly vibrant for the fall season. I found two coats to be perfect for nice even opacity.  Not surprisingly, I am partial to the dark blue Queen for a Night (though it did stain a bit).  Masked Beauty was my least favorite (I'm not a huge fan of gold and it was the least opaque of the four).  

You can find FingerPaints polishes at Sally Beauty Supply or on the Sally website HERE.  If you try these, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Until next time...

Zoya Fall 2014 Ultra PixieDust Collection

*PRESS RELEASE*

Today I'd like to share Zoya's Ultra PixieDust collection for fall 2014.  It features three sparkly shades.  Here's a peek:
From thumb to pinky, two coats each of Zoya Oswin, Arianna, Noir, Oswin, Arianna

As you can see in the above pic, Oswin and Arianna are quite similar.  Arianna is maybe a touch darker.  Noir is the most unique shade, almost a deep plum.  Noir also happens to be my favorite of the three.  Overall, I'm not overjoyed with these.  I prefer the original style PixieDust polishes because they don't have chunky glitter pieces.

Zoya Fall 2014 Entice Collection

*PRESS SAMPLE*

Hi, friends!  Today, I'd like to share Zoya's Fall 2014 Entice collection.  It is comprised of six cream shades.  Here's a peek:
From thumb to pinky, two coats each of Veronica, Ryan, Margo, Geneviev and Claire.

From thumb to pinky, two coats each of Veronica, Ryan, Margo, Geneviev and Nyssa.

These polishes were opaque in two coats and applied like a dream, wonderful formulas.  My favorites of this collection are Ryan and Geneviev but honestly, these are all great fall shades and would be lovely layered with some fun topcoats.  

You can purchase these polishes at Zoya's website HERE.  They retail for $9.00 each.

OPI Who Are You Calling Bossy?!?

Good morning, lovelies!  Today, I'd like to share a polish that I was generously gifted by a dear friend (who not only understands my obsession with black creme polishes but is also incredibly kind).  It is the brand spanking new OPI Who Are You Calling Bossy?!? from their Halloween Peanuts collection.  Feast your eyes!
Above is two coats, no top coat.

I think this is a fabulous black creme, almost jelly-like in finish.  It's super-shiny and applied like a dream, easily opaque in two coats.  I am SO thrilled to have it in my collection, especially because it will always remind me of the dear friend who gave it to me.  I won't name her because she is not the kind to want public kudos.  She prefers to work her magic quietly in the background, spreading her beauty on the down low.  ;)  Suffice it to say, she's amazing and so is this polish!

Until next time, friends.

Zoya Ignite Collection for Fall 2014

*PRESS SAMPLE*

Hello, lovelies!  Today I would like to share Zoya's beautiful new Ignite collection.  It is comprised of six stunning sparkly metallic shades.  First up, the pics:
Zoya India 

From thumb to pinky: Zoya Teigen, Autumn, Yuna, Remy and Sansa

I...love...this...collection!  Honestly, not a weak link in the bunch.  These colors are vibrant, glittery and perfectly opaque in two coats.  If I was FORCED to choose a favorite, I'd have to go with Remy simply because I am obsessed with the color blue.  But truthfully, I love every last one of these shades.  

These polishes are available HERE from Zoya for $9.00 each. Definitely a wonderful collection that I will wear often.
