Manicures #10 and #11, Pedicure #5

28 Apr

Okay, so technically these count as one manicure. I only put a top coat of/finish on top of the original, but I still think they are 2 separate looks!

First:

Zoya Mira:

Wow, wow, wow! Another satisfying Zoya color! (Color is more like the picture with flash) Application on this was very easy and it required 2 coats. There was no streakyness. Note to self: Zoya Cremes are out of this world!

After day 2, I decided it was time to update this manicure, since I was seeing a bit of tipwear. I decided to use OPI Black Shatter:

So I don’t know about this. I love Black Shatter, but I don’t like this combination. It is too gothic for me! I think I’d prefer this with lighter colors underneath. I will attempt this another day. Black Shatter was easy to apply and only required one coat. I applied a top coat to make it glossy because it does dry matte.

Now on my toes I am wearing my most favorite color ever, Essie Jazz:

I don’t know if you can tell, but I am at half a bottle. I think I only have one other polish at this level! I love this color so much! I actually picked it up because of the nameĀ  – it reminded me of my Jazz dance days. No idea why it is called Jazz, but I love it! (I named my blog kinda sorta after this color). It is a very nice grey/pink/purple/nude. I have to admit that my polish is kind of smelly, like chemical smelly, but I still love it. You get even coverage after 2 coats.

In other news – I participated in the Zoya exchange. I got 6 colors and they are all backordered. The waiting game begins again! Zoya always does this to me!

Current Manicure (#3) and Pedicure (#2)

11 Apr

OMG. I just want to say that I am in LOVE with my current manicure. I had been searching for this Color Club for a while and found it at Harmon’s. It was in the right place, however there were two other colors jammed in front of it. I think this is the type of color that I need a back up of. This is Color Club Revvvolution:

::sigh::

Application on this was a dream! It went on easy with one coat, but since I love 2 coats, it was perfection! I used OPI Designer Series topcoat and it left it extremely shiny!

Next up is my pedicure, but of course I never show my feet, so here are the colors I used:

Wet N Wild Buffy the Violet Slayer and Wet N Wild Party of 5 Glitter. I feel like my feet look like disco balls! I think this purple is more of a blurble and unfortunately when it photographs, it looks a lot like another Wet N Wild, Saved by the Blue. Application on this was easy! Definitely get coverage in one coat although you do get some brushstrokes. You definitely need the 2nd coat to even things out. The glitter was easy to apply, however I don’t have gobs of glitter. The brush only picks up a little bit. These Wet N Wilds live up to their name in that they truly are fast dry polishes. A+ for affordability and for the color selection.

Tomorrow I will post my embarrassing haul of nail polish. I need to be banned!
