Zoya Zenith Collection

-Press Sample
Hey Everyone!!  Happy Weekend!!  It's a snowy one here!!  I want to get this post up before we head out to some Holiday Parties..  The collection I'm sharing with you today is The Zenith Collection for Winter from Zoya!!  Each of these colors is pretty amazing.. I always look forward to the winter releases from Zoya..


Payton is, hands-down, my favorite from The Zenith Collection!! She's a deep cranberry with a jelly-like formula containing scattered holographic glitter!!  I had zero sun the day I photographed Payton, but you can still see how stunning she is!!  I used two coats in the above photos!


Dream is another gorgeous polish that's a "cousin" to Payton, except Dream has a beautiful royal blue icy base with holographic glitter.  The formula is also "squishy" like Payton.  Pictured above is two flawless coats of Dream.


Seraphina ( I really like that name!!) is a full coverage metallic gray.  This one is simple, but I like it!  I thought for sure it would take more coats than two to reach full coverage, but I was wrong.  I only used two coats of Seraphina.


Cassedy is a full coverage pewter metallic.  This one looks more gray/silver in the bottle to me.  Once on your nails, Cassedy leans strongly toward green.  She has awesome formula too... another two-coater!!


Belinda is simply gorgeous!!  She not your everyday-purple!!   Look at that beautiful shimmer!!!  I love subtle shimmers like the pinks and blues in Belinda-- beautiful!!  I used two coats in the above 3 pics.

Mosheen  is my favorite glitter topper this season!!  She's an icy blue topper with scattered holo micro glitter and tiny iridescent bar glitter.  You'll only need one coat of Mosheen over your favorite base color followed by top coat.  I especially like her over black or deep blues!!!

OPI San Francisco Collection Part 2

-Press Sample
Happy Weekend Everyone!!  Today I have the remaining six polishes from OPI's San Francisco Collection!!  I meant to post these earlier, but totally forgot!!  Here is my post on the other half of this collection.

Muir Muir On The Wall:

Muir Muir On The Wall is a shimmery plum/eggplant with tons of shimmer.  The first coat goes on thin, but after a generous second coat, full opacity was reached.  This is one of my personal favorites from this collection!

In The Cable Car-Pool Lane:

These photos of  In The Cable Car-Pool Lane are in artificial lighting.  I'd rather take my shots in natural light, but it's been so gloomy here lately.  In The Cable Car-Pool Lane is such a gorgeous color!!  It's a purple-burgundy creme with a glossy finish.  I used two coats in the above photos.

I Knead Sour-Dough:

I Knead Sour-Dough is a rusty brown shimmer.  Personally, this color is just kinda "meh" for me, but formula-wise it's great.  Pictured above is two coats of I Knead Sour-Dough.

Dining Al Frisco:

I just love Dining Al Frisco!!!!  I love everything about it!!!  The formula, the shimmer, the color etc...  It's such a gorgeous light blue.. "fresh air blue" is how OPI describes it and I agree 100%!!  Pictured above is two coats of Dining Al Frisco.

Incognito In Sausalito:

Yep, yet another navy polish. I feel like I own a zillion!!  Incognito In Sausalito is pretty.. just nothing extraordinary.  It stained my cuticles a bit also.  I used two generous coats in the above photos.

First Date At The Golden Gate:

First Gate At The Golden Gate is a shiny brick red creme.  It's very similar to Lost On Lombard (also from this collection).  I like this one more... the finish is just so beautiful.  I did used three coats to reach full opacity though.

San Francisco nail lacquer shades each feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application. Liquid Sand nail lacquers should always be worn without top coat. San Francisco by OPI is available at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, jcp Salons, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, ULTA and for $9.00 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each nail lacquer.

The Polish Bar Holiday '13

-Press Sample
Happy Wednesday Everyone!!  I started decorating the house for Christmas today and that really put me in the mood for some holiday polishes!!  ;)  I have 3 stunning polishes from The Polish Bar's Holiday '13 Collection to share with you today...  I really love each of these polishes.  I have two holos and one glitter topper to show you...


Soiree is a bright cherry red linear holo with amazing shine!!  Too bad we get very few sunny days during the winter here in gloomy Ohio.  It really doesn't matter, though because you can see how shiny Soiree is even without the sun!!  I used two coats of Soiree in the above pics.  I love the shiny finish... I didn't even use any topcoat!! :)

City Of Lights:

City Of Lights has the same amazing formula as Soiree.  It's a Midnight Blue linear holo that reminds me of a starry winter night!!  I really love this color and the shiny finish once again!!  Two coats of City of Lights were used in the above pics!!  Sooo pretty!!

Merry and Bright over Soiree:

Merry and Bright is such a fun glitter topper!!  I love all the different colors of circle glitter!!  They're like ornaments!!  The fine green and gold glitters  look great against a red polish like Soiree.  You'll have to fish a bit for the circles, but not too badly.  I used two coats of Merry and Bright followed by topcoat.  Everything was smooth to the touch after one coat of topcoat.

**This collection goes on sale TODAY at The Polish Bar's Etsy store HERE!!

The first polish from The Leather Luxe collection is Laced Up.  Laced up is a tomato-y red, although it's described as an orange.  Each shade from the Leather Luxe collection dries matte.  The formula with Laced up was great, but I really didn't like how boring this one looked once it dried.. I like a little shine!!  I used two coats of Laced Up.

The second polish I have from The Leather Luxe Collection is Leather Loose.  I really like this brown with tons of shimmer.  And.... look what happens when you add top coat!!!  It's so beautiful and rich!!  I wore this one over the weekend and received a zillion compliments!!  I used two coats of Leather Loose in the above photos.

Emerald Envy:

The first polish I have from The Crystal Crush Collection is Emerald Envy.  My camera captured this one much lighter than it actually is.  Emerald Envy is a gorgeous "Christmas-y" Green with an awesome formula!!  This dries with a " multifaceted 3D texture."  I used two coats of Emerald Envy.

I also have Ruby Mine from the Crystal Crush Collection.  I love this sparkling red!!  Ruby Mine and Emerald Envy would be perfect together in a Christmas Mani!!  I also used two coats of Ruby Mine.

These two collections can be found  exclusively at Walgreens!  The Leather Luxe Collection are $1.99 each and The Crystal Crushes are $2.99 each.
