Polish Addict Nail Color Hand in My Pocket

*Purchased by me*


Hey all!  How is everyone's weekend going so far?  My youngest is sick so we're just hanging around the house being lazy.  Good times!  Today I have a couple polishes from Polish Addict Nail Color (PANC), Hand in My Pocket and Last Kiss as the accent.  PANC released a 90's Playlist collection recently full of great polishes.  I snagged these two.  Hand in My Pocket is a gorgeous blue holo.  It was perfect in two coats.  I picked up Last Kiss because Mr. MLiP is a huge Pearl Jam fan and I just had to have it.  It took three coats and did dry with a bit of texture to it.  I top coated all of it and it was fine.



I really enjoyed wearing these.  I was singing these songs the whole time.  Go give PANC a like on facebook to keep up to date with upcoming releases or promotions.  The shop is closed right now but I believe it's opening back up on Sept 1st.

Until next time...

Zoya Ignite for Fall 2014

*Press Sample*

Hey all!  Today I have my review of the Zoya Ignite collection for fall 2014.  These six polishes are so cool!  They have a great sparkle to them which is usually the only way to get me to wear fall colors.  So lets dive right in!

First up is Sansa a blackened purple with gold shimmer.  This polish has great coverage.  I used two coats and top coat.




Next is Teigen, a violet plum with gold shimmer.  Again two coats was perfect.  The formula is similar to Sansa.




This pretty polish is India.  I don't have a sun and shade photo for this one because it was overcast the day I wore it.  It's still so gorgeous though.  Formula is just like the previous polishes.  This is two coats and top coat.



Yuna is probably my second favorite of the bunch.  It's a gray with copper and gold shimmer.  Two coats and it was perfect.  It was overcast this day too so no sun shot.



Remy is an indigo with copper and gold shimmer.  This is my absolute favorite but I know that's no shock to you all.  This was almost perfect in one coat.  I did two and top coat for the photos.  Remy applied with the same great formula as the others.


I know this one is a bit blurry on the pinky but I just had to show off that shimmer.



Lastly is Autumn, a gorgeous copper.  This polish is fall in bottle folks!  It was a bit thinner than the others in the collection but was still opaque in two coats.




All in all I love these and that's saying a lot for me.  I'm not a fall color kinda girl.  Zoya just does these kind of shimmers so well.  It reminds me of my all time favorite Zoya collection, Sparkle, but with fall colors.  You can purchase these polishes and tons more on zoya.com.  Zoya's facebook page is here.  Give them a like so you'll be up to date on new collections and promos.

Until next time...

Celestial T's in a Tizz

*Purchased by me*


Hello!  So I guess you could say that today's mani is from the vault.  I was doing some clean up in my picture files and found this that I had never shown you.  This is Celestial T's in a Tizz.  I don't remember how many coats this was (I know, bad Sara!) but I do remember really liking the formula and application.  This color is gorgeous!  I gave you a shade shot at the end so you could get a better idea of the green color.



I hope you have a great Saturday!

Until next time...

Born Pretty Store Stamper Review

*Press Sample*


Hello!  Today I have a review of a stamper from Born Pretty Store.  The stamper was sent for review.  I purchased all the polishes and plates used today.  The stamper is a rectangular, which I love.  It's not as hard as my konad stamper but not anywhere as squishy as my xl stamper.  I used two of Rica's stamping polishes, light purple and pink.  As you can see I have some incomplete images on my nails.  Two things caused this, one, you have to roll the stamper across the nail.  Just pressing straight down didn't work like it does with my squishy stamper.  Second, the stamper was having trouble picking up full images.  You can see that most of my images are missing the very edge.  No matter what I tried I couldn't get nice crisp edges.



I'm not ready to give up on this rectangle stamper.  I really want it to work for me.  So I'm going to keep practicing and see if it's me or the stamper.  Born Pretty has a ton of different nail art items.  Click here to check out the shop and here to go right to the stamper.  The code FEMJ61 will save you 10% on regular priced items.  I hope you all have a great day!

Until next time...
