Nail Polish Spotlight: Zoya Rory

Hello ladies (and maybe gents)! Today the NPS is going to shine over Zoya Rory!

Rory, from the Surf collection, is a medium pink with a hint of blue in the mix with micro silver shimmer that gives it a foil metallic effect.

 Zoya Rory- 2 coats

The application was great and the wear was just fantastic. The removal was a little painful, the silver shimmer got all over my fingers when I was removing the polish. It wasn't bad enough to make me never want to wear the polish again, but I'm not a fan of small glitters or particles going everywhere when I take off my nail polish.

Zoya has definitely become one of my favorite brands of polish, I just love their unique polish shades and finishes.  I buy my Zoyas online HERE, since the closet shop that sells them is a hour and a half away from where I live, but I know for sure that you can buy Zoya polishes at Ulta and online, .

Zoya always has great deals for people that create an account on their website, they recently had a BOGO promo for back to school! Click HERE to learn more about the "Share the Love" program and create an account to get a free nail polish! If you buy two other polishes you get free shipping, which is about the price of a polish anyway so it's like getting three polishes for the price of one!

What's your favorite Zoya polish?  Tell me in the comments below.  You can also post pictures of your manis on out Facebook wall HERE.

Nail Polish Spotlight: Pretty&Polished Candy Coated

Hello everyone!  I hope you all are having a great Sunday.  Today the nail polish spotlight is going to shine over Pretty&Polished Candy Coated!  I bought this polish a couple of months ago, you can see my P&P haul HERE, and it is definitely one of my favorite indie polishes, .

Candy Coated is a sheer lavender pink polish with purple, pink, and holo glitters!

 I applied two coats P&P Candy Coated over two coats of OPI Lucky lucky lavender!  The application was great and I had no problems getting a good amount of glitter on my nails.  The wear of this polish was also very good!  I wore this mani for a week and I had very little tip wear.

 With flash

Here is a close-up of the awesome polish combo!

I absolutely LOVE Candy Coated!!!  You can buy Pretty&Polished polishes from their Etsy store HERE, and get restock information on their Facebook page HERE.

Do you have any Pretty&Polished polishes?  Tell me which one(s) is your favorite in the comments below!

Nail Polish Spotlight (Combo): Sally Hansen Pacific Blue & Sinful Colors Hottie

Hello hello everyone!  Sorry for the lack of post, I was glued to the TV during the Olympics and after they were over I was having a bit of Olympic withdraws (yes I'm that obsessed with the Olympics)!  Anyway, today the polish spotlight is going to shine over an AMAZING glitter combo!

 Sinful Colors Hottie and Sally Hansen Pacific Blue

Here's a close-up of Hottie!  Isn't the glitter just amazing?!

 I applied 2 coats of SH Pacific Blue and 1 coat of SC Hottie.  Pacific Blue was very easy to apply and it DIDN'T stain my nails!!!  Hottie was also easy to apply and I didn't have any problems getting an even coat of glitter.

Do you love glitter as much as I do?  Tell me what your favorite glitter combos are in the comments!  You can also post photos of your manis on our Facebook Page!

Julep Maven Box: August 2012

Hello everybody! I hope you all are having a fabulous Sunday!  Are any of y'all obsessed with the Olympics like I am!  My TV hasn't changed channels since the Opening Ceremony!

Anyway, I got my Julep Maven box last week and I wanted to show you guys what I got!  This month's theme was about all about metallic and chrome polishes.  I've begin to notice that this trend is becoming very popular in the nail world.  I wasn't too excited about the polishes this month, but I ended up getting a free box because two people signed up with my referral link. (Thanks ladies)

Maven Box haul!!!  This month I decided to stay with my profile, American Beauty, and got a small bag as a freebie, non-acetone nail polish remover, and three polishes:  Stefani, Dakota, and Piper (add-on)!

This month was the Maven Program's first birthday! Happy Birthday Julep!!!!
The tote bag is a lot smaller that I thought it would be, but hey it was free so I can't complain.
