I mean to post this a lot sooner however I spent most of the day cooking and then eating! I'm seriously still stuffed and it's been a few hours since I last ate. This is what I ended up doing for My Chirstmas manicure. It really hit the spot and I was super happy with it! I put on Zoya Ziv as my base and the polish was so pretty I almost didn't want to mess with it. Ziv is a super shiny and almost feels like it's a metallic nail sticker the way it shines. It's a super foil polish and it's opaque in just two thin coats. I was wanting to try the christmas tree tape method I've seen online and I gave it a try and it turned out better than I expected. I was going to do trees on each nail but I didn't want to overwhelm them so I opted on using The Hungry Asian Candy Cane to make my nails even more festive. I used Zoya logan for the tree and zoya blaze as the tree topper. I hope everyone had a good holiday season this year and now it's time to start thinking about the new year!

I wore this over the Girly Bits Fathomless. Wearing this combo really got me in the holiday spirit! So with it being Christmas Eve I thought it would be perfect to post this. For those celebrating, Merry Christmas!! At some point tomorrow I'll post my Christmas manicure. My plans for tomorrow is to eat myself silly! :) Happy Holidays!!

Today I've got a look at Girly Bits Fathomless. This a dark green teal jelly with an uncontrollable sparkle! It takes a few coats to get this one opaque but it can be layered over a darker color. However I prefer the depth that is created when you layer this one on it's own. The extra work pays off! I wore this to the hospital for my volunteering interview and everyone I saw complimented me on the color and how it was perfect for the holidays! I do like holiday colors that are festive yet can be worn at any time of year and this one is one of those. The Sparkle on this one is gorgeous it also shifts into blue... It's Lovely!
Girly Bits can be purchased here: http://girlybits.bigcartel.com/
They can also be found at the following authorized distributors :Llarowe, Harlow & Co., Mei Mei’s Signatures and Overall Beauty

I came across this Polish while I was at Kmart about two weeks ago. I never heard about it and honestly as soon as I saw it I grabbed it and knew I had to take it home with me. Revlon is really stepping up their game. This polish looks like an indie! There's nothing I don't like about this one. The Colors are pretty sweet and Girly is a super fitting name. If you can find it, buy it because at 5 bucks you can't go wrong!

I have nothing but good things to say about this polish. It has to be one of the more unique scattered holos I've ever seen. I put this polish on after trying ten other polishes the night before I went to do manicures for the women at the shelter and none of them were working for me. It was late and I was tried and wanting to go to bed. When I put on Aurora I looked at my hand and honestly my jaw dropped and I pretty much screamed out some profane words... hah I've never had a polish move me that much! I think I might even go as far as saying that this might be my favorite Zoya polish I own. In my opinion it is a must have and it's because of this polish that I went out and bought the rest of the Ornate collection. No issues with formula it pretty much went on like butter. It's truly a stunning polish!! It's pretty in the pictures but it really should be seen in person!
Lovely, just LOVELY!
Spring is awash in six soft and lovely new Zoya shades including three dewy metallics and three fresh blooms of cream. Poetic in nature, this collection is sure to capture the beauty of the season like no other....
Ultra long-wearing, nail lacquers by Zoya are BIG5FREE - all formulas are completely free of harmful industrial chemicals such as toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and dibutyl phthalate (DBP) that are known to cause cancer and birth defects.
Zoya Lovely $8 (US)

It's been a really rainy and yucky day out so I'm not in a huge mood to blab tonight..I know I know what a shock! So This polish is super pretty but I had a major issue with it. Application was super lumpy and difficult. I tried thinning it out but that didn't seem to help. One Day I might try to mess with it some more to make it more wearable for me. I put it on and took it right off after I took these pictures. I couldn't get over the lumpiness and it made me frustrated. It's a shame because it's sooo Pretty!! Would I buy it again? I'm on the fence. I hate to post this negative review about this brand but that was my experience with this polish and I can only hope that the brand continues to improve.
Today I have a very special Polish to share with you guys. It was a gift from a fellow blogger. Mimi from http://www.makeupwithdrawal.com/ was kind enough to send me this along with two other beauties she made. She posted a pic of this on instagram and I commented about how awesome it was and she was like hey I'll send you a bottle. I love how awesome the Nail Polish community is! At this point I don't believe she is selling any of her creations but this is seriously something I would have paid money for! The name is super fitting because this polish is Ridonkulous! Purple flakie... I'm in love!! If you aren't following her blog yet you should, because she's pretty Ridonkulous herself!!

COLOR + TOP COAT = ENDLESS CREATIVITY
China Glaze® Introduces Tranzitions Color Changing Collection
Los Angeles, CA – (December 2012): There’s nail art and then there’s China Glaze® nail couture. Reverse French manicure, half moons, ombre, basket weave, dots or racing stripes: nail designs are intricate and multi-colored. China Glaze® introduces a new way to get multi-color, unique nail art with fewer bottles of polish with the new color-changing Tranzitions collection!
China Glaze® Tranzitions’ revolutionary new nail lacquer reacts when a clear top coat is applied, changing the color from one shade to another for a stunning effect. Wear any of the six beautiful, color-shifting shades alone, or allow your creativity to run wild and create intricate nail designs by applying a top coat in specific places. Try different looks using nail art brushes, free-hand designs or nail guides. Because each shade changes color, you get two lacquers in one, creating an entirely new look with just one swipe.
The China Glaze® Tranzitions collection features six shades, though with the color transition, you get 12 unique shades including:
Split Perso-NAIL-ity – Dusty pink shifts to fuchsia
Duplicityy – Mint green shifts to vibrant teal
Modify Me – Periwinkle blue shifts to indigo blue
Altered Reality – Teal blue shifts to turquoise
Metallic Metamorphosis – Silvery grey shifts to bluish-charcoal grey
Shape Shifter – Smokey violet shifts to dark purple
How It Works:
Step 1: Apply a base coat.
Step 2: Apply two coats of China Glaze® Tranzitionsshade of choice. Allow to completely dry.
Step 3: Lastly, apply one coat of clear top coat such as China Glaze® Fast Forward and watch the color change right before your eyes.
