NOTD: Zoya Jana+Essie Shine Of The Times!!

So I have been wearing Zoya Jana for a couple of days, and today I got my hands on a bottle of Essie Shine Of The Times from their new holiday Luxeffects collection!! :D I was sooo excited to get this, it looks like an exact dupe of Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure, which I have seen all over the internet, but I've never had the chance to own it. So I may be getting a backup bottle as well, just in case this becomes hard to find. :) So here it is over my Zoya Jana mani:

So bottom line, I am very happy with this topcoat. I am thinking of getting the other four from the collection, they are just all so gorgeous. :) Thanks for stopping by!!

NOTD: Zoya Jana.

So another Zoya color from the Fall 2011 Smoke and Mirrors Collection. This is Jana, a smoky, gray color with mauve undertones. This is one of those colors that is along the lines of being a nude, but has just a little more to it. Perfect fall color. :)

Thanks for stopping by! :)

So that's the look for tonight, hope you like it! :) Thanks for stopping by!

Mini Haul From Ulta+OPI Ali's Big Break.

So I totally forgot to post this a while ago, I was supposed to do it last week, but forgot lol. These are just a few clearance polishes I picked up at Ulta, OPI Ali's Big Break, OPI Take The Stage, and China Glaze Aqua Baby. I thought the first two were perfect for the holidays, and it makes sense since these were part of OPI's Burlesque Holiday Collection last year. And Aqua Baby is just a really gorgeous blue...don't let the name fool you, this has no hint of aqua or a similar color, it's just a true blue. 

So I wore Ali's Big Break last weekend, and it's a red color with pink undertones, and gold shimmer. Really, really pretty. I absolutely love reds, and have a hard time passing up any. :)

So that's it for now, hopefully this weekend I can post another tutorial. :) Thanks for stopping by!

Entry For Nail Art Contest. :)

Hey everyone, so it's been a little while, just have a lot going on with the semester almost over and I was a little under the weather. :) I will have at least one more Fall design this week sometime, but here is a Fall one that I did for a nail art contest from youtuber superminx66.

No captions, but I am talking through each step, which I feel can be a little more helpful than trying to read every caption. :) Thanks for stopping by!

NOTD: Zoya Shay.

Hey everyone! So tonight I have on Zoya Shay from the Touch Collection. I know it's just a nude color, not too exciting, but I absolutely love it. It's a creamy nude with just a little metallic touch. The coverage is amazing for a nude color, and the metallic shimmer just adds a little something to it. :)

So at least now I think I've found the perfect everyday nude for myself. :) Thanks for stopping by!



NOTD: Zoya Jem.

So this color was on my nails since yesterday, and I changed them tonight lol. But I still wanted to share it, this is Zoya Jem from the Smoke and Mirrors Collection. This is a really pretty shimmery red-toned purple, and actually has a duochrome effect. 

Thanks for looking! :)
