Zoya - Remy and Sansa

Hello loves!

It's that time of the year again!  It's time for my favorite nail polish brand to have everyone's favorite sale.  Zoya's Earth Day Exchange sale is a popular time to stock up on all the Zoya Nail Polish that you have been eyeing.  Check out the full details on the sale here.  But basically, you get your coveted Zoya's for 50% off.  You can even send in your old, crusty nail polishes to them for safe disposal and keep them out of land fills.  It's a win-win situation.  You are not required to send them your old polishes to take advantage of the sale though.  The Earth Day Exchange sale is going on through April 28th.  I am going to try and share some Zoya swatches with you this week to hopefully help you add a little bit more to your sale list.  Sorry...I'm an enabler.  What can I say?

Today, I am sharing with you two stunners from the Ignite collection.  This collection came out in Fall 2014 and featured gorgeous deep toned shimmery polishes.  They are all amazing (I couldn't help myself and snagged the whole collection) but these two are my favorites.

First, let's talk about Sansa.  Not only is this polish named after and beloved Game of Thrones character but it is a stand out in the collection.  She has a deep, eggplant purple base with a ton of gold and purple shimmer.  The shimmer is more like microflakes of shifty goodness, check out the macro to see them.  I used two coats with a top coat when I wore this manicure.  It didn't stain and applied smoothly.

Next, we have Remy.  She is the crowd favorite of this collection with her deep blue base and shifty shimmer.  The shimmer in this polish is a combo of gold and turquoise.  It will flash more blue in certain light and more teal in others.  Again, no staining and great application.  Two coats and a top coat for this manicure.

Cirque Colors - Magic Hour holos


It's warming up out there and starting to feel a lot more like summer!  I will miss spring but I am excited for summer colors.  And what so we wear in the summer on our nails??  Neons!  And what type of polish is the most fun to wear in the sunshine?  Holographics!  So, put those two together and you have a winning combo.  Today, I have four limited edition holographic polishes from Cirque Colors to share with you from the Magic Hour collection.  This collection is exclusive to Nordstrom's Magic Hour pop-in shops curated by Olivia Kim.  These small shops are only in a select number of Nordstrom stores.  But you can purchase any of the limited edition products online like I did.  I snagged the four holographic polishes in this collection the moment they were available online and I can't wait to share them with you!

Cirque Colors - The Metropolis Collection for April 2015

Hello April!

Today, I have two lovely creme polishes being released by Cirque Colors this month.  Cirque started releasing creme shades of polishes every month as part of their Metropolis Collection.  Each of the polishes are inspired by places around New York City.  For April, we have two brightly colored cremes that are perfect for not only spring, but transitioning into summer too!  The polishes released each month as part of the Metropolis Collection are not limited edition.  You will be able to get these polishes at any time until they retire the shade.  I really enjoy this type of monthly release.  We are always looking forward to new colors and our pocket books are not severely damaged but the release of a big collection all at once.  Want to see the pretty polishes!?!?

Nayll Custom Polishes - The Peterson Girls 2.0


The fun thing about indie polish is all the cool glitter combinations you can get.  And indie makers do an amazing job at creating interesting combos.  But have you ever wanted a specific glitter combination and just couldn't find that exact polish anywhere?  Well, you are in luck!  Nayll is a company out of California that is set up to make custom polishes just the way you want them.  All you do it go to their site, select your base, then select your glitters or shimmers.  It's that easy!  You even get to name your polish and the name goes right on the label.  Such a cool idea.  And what is even better...the polishes don't suck!

I decided to make 4 polishes in honor of my four girl cousins.  Us second gen Peterson girls are amazing.  Just like the original Peterson girls, our mothers.  I am not sure how other families work, but in ours, cousins are almost as equally close and important as siblings.  I freaking love them!  Are you close with your cousins?  So, if you want to see the cool creations I made in their honor...click on through!

Takko Lacquer - Physical Graffiti

Hi folks!

Tonight, I have a quick little swatch of a super cool polish for you.  I am a sucker for grey polish.  I know that some people think it's drab...but I think it just looks so cool and chic when I wear it.  And this grey beauty is a stunner!  Takko Lacquer made a perfect grey crelly loaded with platinum metallic flakes.  It has a squishy look to it and the flakes are nice a flat.  They don't stick up at all!  I used two coats for this swatch with a glossy top coat.  Now for pictures!
