Zoya Delight

*Press Sample*

Hey all!  I'm super excited to share the Zoya Delight collection for Spring 2015.  I love spring colors.  I have a weakness for pastels so this collection is perfect for me.  It's made up of three creams and three cool shimmers.  I'm going to start with the shimmers because well, shimmers!!

Zoya Daisy is yellow with a blue flash.  It has a really great formula.  This is three coats and top coat.  I wore this for a few days and it held up really well.  The shade picture is more color accurate to me.

Zoya Leslie is a light purple with a blue flash.  This also has a great formula.  I used two coats and top coat.  I love this one and can't wait to wear it again.

Zoya Rayne is a gorgeous blue with a turquoise flash.  I needed three coats for opacity.  I could not get this polish to dry.  I used my normal top coat and an hour later it was still super squishy.  I ended up having to remove it.  Sad because this is my favorite polish from the collection.  I'm going to try again with a different top coat and maybe base coat combination.

Zoya Tiana is a light green cream.  The formula was a little difficult on this one.  I needed three coats but it is on the thin side of things.

Zoya Eden is a pink cream.  The formula was good on this one.  I used two coats and top coat for the photos.  This is pretty much the perfect spring pink.

Zoya Lillian is light blue cream.  The formula was okay on this one, not stellar but not terrible.  I used three coats and top coat.

So there you have it!  Zoya Delight for spring 2015.  I love all of them even with some formula issues.  The creams are just asking to have some sort of nail art.  Really simple nail art because well, I suck at it.  You can purchase these on zoya.com.  Also give Zoya a like on facebook to be kept up to date on all the latest.

Until next time...

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Review

*Press Sample*

Hey everyone!  I have three polishes from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer to show you today.  Those of you that have been around a while know that Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer (BEGL) is one of my favorite indies so I'm always thrilled to show them off to you.

First up we have Grandpa, an off white creme with rose and gold microflakies (totally stole that description right from the BEGL site).  This is three coats and top coat.  For a white this was very well behaved.  I'm a sucker for a white polish so I'm loving this one.

Next up is Oy, Stupid Face!, a hot pink with blue/purple and blue/green flakies.  This is such a fun girly pink.  I used three coats and top coat for this one.

My final polish today is Mickey Smith. Defending the Earth, a hunter green linear holo with gunmetal flakies.  I love this one!!  This is two coats and top coat.  This wore like iron for several days.
