Zoya Magical Pixie Dust

Hi guys! I finally got my computer working so now I can show you guys the new Zoya Magical Pixie Dust Collection. YAY! Take a look at the bottles. 


Pretty right? On to the Swatches!

All three of the shades are pretty much the same with the exception of color. All textured of course, full of  multi sized hex glitter and what Zoya calls "Holographic pixie particle" which I just take to mean holo glitter. LOL 

First up is a dark purplish pink called Arlo. 



I did two coats of Arlo with no top coat.

Next is Bar. I am in love with the color of this one. Zoya describes it as Topaz.  I do think this one would have been a great shade to be released around the holidays because it has Christmas party, New Years Eve celebration written all over it!


I did two coats of bar with no top coat.

Finally we have Ginni. This is a really pretty light pink.



As with the other two I did two coats with no top coat.

My thoughts-

Honestly it's a very pretty collection. I don't particularly think that anything about them is new or innovative, but they are all really nice solid colors. The consistency of all of them was great, they were very easy to apply even with all the glitter and they were a breeze to remove. If you are a fan of nudes then I would suggest Bar.

 If you would like to purchase any of these you can find them here for $10 or buy the set of three for $30.

Also if you missed my previous reviews of Bubbly and Tickled you can find them here and here.

What do you think? See any you NEED to have? Leave a comment lets chat!

Have a lovely day!

Emily de Molly Harmony

 Hi guys!

 I recently received Emily de Molly Harmony in a swap and I was so excited to get it swatched! Take a look!


It's a grayish base that looks almost silver with my lighting full of various sized hexagons in blues, white and purple and white squares. 


Slightly blurry macro shot lol. 

I loved this polish! I appreciated that it wasn't to thick like Cosmic Forces is (man is that polish a pain) and I loved the color combination. I am obsessed with gray polish so this one will definitely be one I reach for often. 

That's it for today! I hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend and enjoy some BBQ for me!

Zoya Summer 2014 Tickled Swatch and Review

The products in this post were received free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
No compensation was received. 

Hi guys! Happy Monday! Today I have the Zoya Tickled Collection to show you. I was very excited to receive these polishes. I'm a huge fan of creams and every single cream in this collection is awesome and perfect for the summer! So without further adieu, lets get to the swatches!  

Kirtridge, Ling, Wendy

Rocha, Rooney, Tilda

Kirtride is a bright bubblegum pink that went on a bit streaky at first but built up to opacity after about three coats.


Ling is a really pretty bright blue. This one had a really good consistency and was nearly opaque in one coat. For swatch sake I did two coats.   


Rocha is a orange-y color that had a bit of red in it. This one also has a bit of shimmer but to be honest I couldn't really see it. It definitely didn't come through in the swatch.


Rocha was my favorite shade of the bunch. I am not an orange fan at all! But I think this color is freaking gorgeous and perfect for summer!

Rooney a darker pink almost magenta but not quite as dark. This one was a bit thick but still workable.


Tilda is a very bright yellow toned green. This one was thick as well and I would suggest using very thin coats. I did like this color. I don't know what it is about this collection but I'm loving the colors I would normally hate! LOL!


Finally we have Wendy. Zoya describes Wendy as a "juicy summer melon" and I think that's a pretty good way to describe the color. This one was a bit thick as well but again not to difficult to work with. Again I recommend very thin coats!


All in all I'm very pleased with the Zoya Tickled collection. I definitely liked it more than the Bubbly collection. I think the colors are bright and summery and would go well with a multitude of skin tones. I think that bright colors tend to look crazy on people with darker skin tones such as mine but these were perfect. My definite favorites were Rocha and Tilda. I also liked that all of these would be great undies for a variety of glitter toppers.

These polishes are available for purchase here and they sale for $9 each.

Which is your favorite? Are there any must haves for you in this collection?

Zoya Summer 2014 Bubbly Review

The products provided in this review were provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review
No compensation was received. 

Hi guys!

Today I have the Zoya Bubbly collection to show you. I'm sure you've seen the swatches floating around so I will keep it short.

In general the polishes are all pretty much alike. They are all full of iridescent glitter, slightly thick and they went on a bit sheer though became opaque in about 3 coats. The only difference between these polishes were the colors.

On to the swatches!

Stassi is a light green. I usually hate greens but I don't mind this one so much.

Harper is a beautiful bright pink and my favorite of the bunch!

Alma is a light orange color that looks more golden than orange on my skin tone.

Jesy is a dark orange. I didn't expect to like this color as much as I did. I think its a great summery color.

Muse is a dark blue.

Binx is a pretty pinkish purple and also a favorite of mine.

My thoughts

In general I thought the collection was just ok. I would have liked some variety in the polishes besides color. I don't think that the line was very imaginative and though I liked a couple of the colors I don't see the need to buy the whole collection. I would suggest Binx, Harper and maybe Jesy. One thing that REALLY turned me off about this collection is the removal. There was glitter EVERYWHERE! It drove me absolutely nuts.

If you are interested in purchasing any of these they are available here for $9 a bottle or $54 for the entire collection.

So what do you think of the Bubbly collection? Any shades you MUST have?

 I'll be back later with the Tickled collection which I'm very excited for!

Jindie Nails Barney Blew Up

Hi guys!

I've got a lemming to show you today! I received this polish as a gift from a gal in my birthday group. I was SO excited. I have wanted Barney Blew Up for what seems like forever.

I could gush about this polish all day or I could just show you it's awesomeness! Check it out!


It's a pinkish/purple color and the bottle is PACKED with glitter in pink, purple white and green.




I will admit it was a little difficult to work with due to the amount of glitter in the bottle. But this polish is so pretty I was willing to do the extra work. ;)

Interested in purchasing a Jindie for yourself? You can purchase them here.

So what do you think? Do you need this color in your life?

Have a lovely Friday!

Aly's Dream Polish

Hi guys!

I was lucky enough to receive a press pack from Aly's Dream Polish and I am SO excited to show you these beauties!



Prussian Purple is a light purple holo. To me it almost looks like a grayish purple. Which I love.



It was impossible to capture the holo indoors so I had to wait a few days for the sun to come back out. 


This polish was a breeze to apply. I used two coats and one coat of Seche Vite. I had no problems with application and it was the perfect consistency, not to thick not to thin.

Next up is my favorite of the three Ballad of Serenity. This one is a brown holo


A couple of outdoor shots to show the holo.



This one was my favorite. Indoors it just looks like any brown polish but outdoors it looks almost golden with the sparkling of the holo. I loved it. Like Prussian Purple this is two coats with one coat Seche Vite. It had a great consistency and was very easy to apply.

Finally Dark Midnight Blue. This one is a Dark Blue Holo.


Like the other two this one had great consistency and was easy to apply. This is two coat with one coat Seche Vite. One thing to note with this one. Don't be a ditz like me and forget to put on a base coat. :) When I took this polish off I had smurf fingers. They weren't to bad, I've definitely had worse staining but it could have been avoided with a couple of coats of a base.



I love the scattered holo. It wasn't to intense but it was a nice little pop of sparkle that I enjoyed.

I am very happy with the polishes I received. I think they were made well and I think that everyone needs at least one! I was surfing around on the website and there are a TON of polishes I need. Aly's Dream Polish can be purchased here and they cost $12.00.

So what do you think? Do you own any Aly's Dream Polish? Any suggestions on which ones I need NOW!? Leave a comment below. Lets chat!
