Zoya Chloe

Here's a look at Chloe from the Zoya Fleck Collection. This a sheer pink flakie with two flake colors: red to gold and a blue to green flake mix. Flakies have been all the rage lately, Chloe has really made an impression on me since I haven't seen another similar flakie combo like it. So it's pretty clear that I was loving this one I wore it over several colors just because it really is awesome. My favorite was when I layered it over white. However for some reason when I wore it over white I got several air bubbles(errr) that came through and it bugged me. I hate posting pictures that aren't "perfect" but re-swatching was not really an option since I did 5-6 coats to get that nice pink color and well can you blame me for not wanting to use up the whole bottle so quickly. Regardless this is a great effect top coat to have and if you don't have it you need it!

Zoya Maisie

This past week has been terrible for getting any good swatches since it's been rainy and cloudy for days. I was lucky enough to get a little sun, enough sun to get this beauty swatched. I wanted to do all a post featuring all three of the colors from the Zoya Fleck Collection but due to lack of sweet sunlight I just have Maisie today. Plus I ended up with so many pictures this color needed it's own post! So I layered it over Zoya Purity which is your standard white and then after a few days I layered it over a black. This can be worn alone but for me it looks better layered over a nice base. It looks great over black but when you layer it over black it looks like many other flakes. The green to blue shift in the flakes is pretty common so it's not a hard one to find out there. For me this really shines over a basic white because then you can enjoy the blue jelly base.  It turned into this super pretty pastel blue. On the white I used 2-3 coats, over the black just one coat and by it self in the last pic I think that was a 4-5 coater.  So Pretty!

LULU Update!

First of all Thank you Guys for your support! This past week was a nightmare with lots of ups and downs and I can finally say the we are over the worst. So first of all we named the little pup and we went with Lulubell, but Lulu for short. Not a huge fan of the name but my husband loved it so I figured I could live with it. My last post I was at a point where we were uncertain if the little one was going to make it but I can now say that she's healthy and doing well. Not only were we dealing with Parvo we were also dealing with hypoglycemia. Basically her body can't regulate blood sugar and it gets very low.

Here's a little backstory of some of the things we went through. The vet told us if she gets past day 4 of her parvo treatment she was pretty much golden and well on day 4 she was fine I even took her to the vet to get checked out and on the way home after work she had a seizure in the car and well several more followed that night and it was so bad that on Friday of last week I took her to the vet because i seriously thought we were gonna have to have her put to sleep since she was unresponsive from the seizures. It was a tough night I didn't get any sleep. Well took her to the vet and once they checked her temp she instantly perked up(hah yes glad the thermometer up the butt trick worked!). I knew there was still some fight in her so we left her there for the day to get some fluids and glucose and at the end of the day we came and got her and she was well not looking great, she was still out of it for the most part but I took her home and every 45 mins through the whole night I rubbed nutra-cal on her gums and she finally came too around 3am and even ate a lot on her own. They had to shave the fur off her front legs to put a catheter in, so she looks like she's wearing some Ugg Boots, it also looks like two toothpicks in marshmallows.  My vet is open on Saturday so we dropped her off for some more fluids and she was pretty spunky. I admit since I got her on the 7th I haven't had much sleep but things have started to calm down. She hasn't had a seizure since last Friday morning. She isn't throwing up and she's pretty much over the parvo. I am looking forward to the future with little Lulu.  Now she's pretty much over the worst but now that she's more puppy like she's turned into a whiner crybaby so I went from being up all night because she was sick to being up almost all night because she's whining and howling. Yesterday was one of the first nights I got some sleep since she is starting to give up on the whining. I'm so jealous of my husband since he is able to sleep through all this. Sorry my story telling on this sucks so exhausted but so glad to still have little Lulu around. I've got some more cute pics of her and a little video of her before her vet visit on Saturday. hopefully I'll get back to regular posting sometime soon.  I would not have been able to get through this if it wasn't for the help of the amazing Vets and staff at Richland Creek Animal Clinic here in Greenville. They are amazing caring people and helped me save my little Lulu!

Zoya True Collection

 Today I've got a look at Zoya's Newest collection: The 2012 Spring True Collection. This Collection is now available for sale on their website. 

A yellow toned nude with a hint of delicate shimmer. This one makes my nails feel very crisp and clean. Out of all the nude colors I own by Zoya this one so far is the closest to my favorite nude.

First thought I had when I put this one on was Liquid Khakis in a Bottle! I'm not a big fan of Khakis but I gotta say I didn't hate this color. I'll file this one under "work appropriate". 

This Green is a must have! To me it's a mix of aquafresh mint with a seafoamy sage green. With all the drama I had going on I ended up wearing this one for about ten days, I gotta say this one is worth wearing for that long. It's a pretty standard cream polish but nothing is standard about this color. It's a compliment magnet and the wear on it was outstanding hardly any wear on it after so many days. The color is so refreshing. This was one of my stand outs in the collection.

A dusty blue with sliver and gold shimmer flecks. This one sorta reminds me of a jazzed u Marina from the Mirrors collection. I usually don't care for blues but this one surprised me I really enjoyed it. My favorite thing about it was the shimmer, in the bottle the shimmer is rather muted but on the nail it comes alive.

When I first saw the True Collection polishes I thought to myself the two to get in this collection are gonna be the purples. Well I like this color but I don't Love it. To me it's a rather faded dusty purple and the pink/gold shimmer while very pretty just didn't stand out enough on the nail for me to like it. It left me wanting more. 

I feel similar about this one as I do about Lotus. Except for that the base color appeals to me more. It's got a different shimmer in it more of a orange/red/gold shimmer It's pretty but once again rather muted on the nail.
