Friday Night Nails-Waterfall Nail Art

Hi polish friends!  What's happening?
  I'm not sure exactly when, but somewhere along the way in life, Fridays went from celebrating the beginning of the weekend with a party, to instead looking forward to spending some quality time with my nails :-) Here is what I was working on tonight... Waterfall Nail Art:


Base color:
 Zoya Brittany

Stripes: 
Zoya Ziv (the best gold poish eva!)
Color Club Harp On It (crazy holographic silver),
KBShimmer Eyes White Open (white cream)
 KBShimmer Eclipse (black cream)

I'm really psyched about this color combo together!  What are you doing with your Friday night?

Thanks for stopping by!

Greetings!  KBShimmer has a new polish out that is gorgeous, shimmery, holographic deliciousness - "Men Are From Mars-ala" (which is a play on the Pantone "Color of The Year", Marsala!). This 'earthy red brown' is a great shade to wear as we transition into Spring (ok, I'm pushing it, right? I mean we are clearly in the tight grip of Winter here in New Jersey, but a little positive thinking can go a looooong way, am I right?). Enough rambles..check out this beauty:

NEW! OPI Fifty Shades of Grey Collection (Nail Polish Pictures & Review)

OPI's "Fifty Shades of Grey" collection is currently out and it's full of a great range of gray polishes plus one pop of red. I've never read the books before, but this collection offers a gray for everyone.  Check them out!

Light gray cream (3 layers shown here):

Shine For Me
Silver & blue micro glitter with semi-opaque coverage (3 layers shown):

Embrace The Gray
Medium toned neutral gray cream (2 layers):

My Silk Tie

We all probably have tons of red polish, but if you're in the market for a nice, neutral toned one that is not too blue or orange, this is a great choice (2 layers):

dark gray with blue undertones (2 layers):


What do you think of this collection?  Have you read the books, and if so - are you planning on seeing the movie?

Zoya Ultra Pixie Dust Collection (Nail Polish Pictures & Review)

I'm back after a little hiatus, full of polish and holiday cheer ;-)   I have Zoya's Ultra Pixie Dust collection to show you today!

These textured, glitter polishes are the perfect holiday colors to wear or to give.   Check them out:

Arianna
 blue-toned red wine textured polish (2 layers shown here):


 Noir
vampy plum textured polish (2 layers):

Oswin
true red textured polish (2 layers):

The thing I really love about Zoya's Pixie Dusts are that they dry pretty quick and no top coat is required, making application that much faster!  (You can always put a top coat on if you prefer a less textured finish). These beauties can be purchased from www.zoya.com for $10 each.

Hello there fellow nail polish addicts!  I'm getting excited about the holiday collections rolling in nowadays, and OPI's collab with Gwen Stefani is tons of fun!  Yes, there are a BUNCH of reds, (but keep in mind- "normal" nail polish customers don't feel the need to own EVERY.SINGLE.POLISH. from each collection like we do) Let's just say, there's a red for every skin tone, every mood, and every day of the week here!  ;-)

Ok, so what did you love from this collection??  My absolute favs are Christmas Gone Plaid (I don't have another green OPI like it!), I Carol About You (that purple!), and (surprisingly to me) Rollin' In Cashmere...with Don't Speak on top (loved that combo!). These can be found wherever OPI is sold. The regular bottles retail for $9.50 each and the Don't Speak 18K Gold Top Coat sells for $30.
