Zoya Rina

Hi lovely readers! I know I have been a terrible blogger this month. January will hopefully bring a more normal pace of life with more time to make blogging a priority...I love this too much to give up on it! :)

 Those of you that follow me on Facebook know I got a DSLR camera for Christmas! I am still pretty intimidated by it, but I'm also super excited to be able to have better quality photos for you guys. The photo below is one of my first and I know it needs improvement...so bear with me until then!

Anyway, this is Zoya Rina, part their Gems and Jewels collection. Like I mentioned before, I never felt like I needed these bar glitters til a few weeks ago, and I am so glad I didn't pass them up! In person they are 45920234 times stunning than any pic I have seen online. My favorite part is that I think these can be worn any time of the year...and I can't wait to try this as a pedi.

Also for any of you that didn't see yesterday, Plum District has a deal going on in conjunction with bloom.com that I think is worth taking advantage of! It's $50 for $25 to spend on bloom.com. I just used my voucher to pick up the OPI Nicki Minaj collection (cant' wait)!! They have a ton of other makeup/skincare/haircare product also. You will get free shipping and when you first sign up with Plum District you get a $5 voucher to use. So that makes the deal $20 for $50 to spend on bloom.com! You can get your own *here*!

Awesome Deal Alert (US Only)!!

Get $50 for $25 towards bloom.com (they carry all sorts of polish and cosmetics). If you are a first time user you get $5 making your deal even cheaper! Everyone also gets free shipping! Check it *here*! :)

Banana Republic Plum Pudding

Long time no blog! I have been having too much fun with my family! :)

Today's polish is one I received for Christmas from my dad. It's from Banana Republic. I didn't even know Banana Republic had nail polish, but they are surprisingly good quality.

This one is called Plum Pudding, and it's two coats. I topped it with NYX Gilded Glitter and the ring finger is Color Club Gingerbread. This still has a holiday vibe, but doesn't just scream it. And the NYX flakie=LOVE!

Have any of you tried polish from Banana Republic?

Well, I hope you all had a great holiday! As always, thanks for reading! :)

Another Snowflake Mani

Snowflake nail art seems to be one of the more popular looks this year after reading blogs this month. I can see why, because they are super cute! This is probably the third time I have shown them to you here.

This version is China Glaze Blue Year's Eve, Kleancolor Pastel Teal and Sally Hansen Glass Slipper. The snowflake stamps come from our shop! Have you done a snowflake mani this season?

Have a good one and thanks or stopping by!

Zoya Kissy Swatch

Hey lovely readers! Today's post is just a quick swatch of Zoya Kissy, part of the Gems and Jewels collection. I originally decided that I didn't need these bar glitters, but I took a chance and got them anyway. They are a million times better in person, and I'm glad that I didn't miss out! Also, I think they can all work for year round wear, a definite plus. These will make great pedi colors!

So here's  Kissy. We attempted nail art on top, but I think these are best left alone. Kissy is too pretty to cover up anyway! :)

I have more nail art to show you tomorrow! Thanks for reading!

Festive Christmas Nails

You guys! I'm back!! I have missed blogging so much. My husband and I moved this past week and that was just insane and my nails took a beating. I can't promise a post daily because we are now celebrating the season with family, but I am definitely back! :)

So the nail look I am showing you today is a scotch tape mani. The base is Orly Luxe, with alternating China Glaze Glittering Garland and Poinsettia. China Glaze Twinkle Lights is the accent fingers.

Hopefully I can fit a few more Christmas manis in before it's over!

Also as a note, our You Mix site is down while we are on holiday. Any orders will ship after the new year. :)

Snowy Nail Sponging

Hi readers!

I did a simple, but fun mani last night using the nail sponging technique. The base is Kleancolor Pastel Blue, with Color Club Pretty in Platinum sponged in sort of a gradient from the tips. The middle finger is the same colors, but reversed. And to top it off, China Glaze Snowglobe was sponged on. It gives this mani just the touch it needs!

I wish my photo was a little better, but here it is anyway. I think it looks way better in person than it does here!

China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara

Hey everyone! I feel like I have sucked at posting lately which is disappointing since I was so excited about doing holiday manis! Luckily we are only 5 days into December, so hopefully I can find some time some  soon!

This mani was quick and easy but still has a winter-y feel to it. This is China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara with China Glaze Blue Year's Eve as the french tip. Tiara was good in 2 coats, and the formula was very manageable for a glitter!

The only other one I want from the Eye Candy collection is Marry a Millionaire, but my Sally's only had 4 of the 6 in the collection in a little display. I know other people have seen the same thing at their's as well. Anyone know why? Or where I can get Marry a Millionaire without paying a ton for shipping?

Snowflake Nail Art

Hey polish lovers!

I just wanted to thank those of you that checked out our site and have given us some feedback (you can find the link in my shop tab)! If you notice that we don't ship to your country, just let me know and I will add it. :)

So my mani for today is another version of one included in my Dr.'s Remedy post. Each nail has a different snowflake! Of course, these all come from the stamping plates for sale in our shop. The base for this is Color Club Nothing but Truffle and the stamping polish is Orly Luxe.

Sorry for the crappy pic, but you get the idea. Thanks for reading, you guys are the best!
