An Unlikely Last-Minute Unique Combo!!

I haven't been this excited about swatches in a while, hence my lack of posting lately. Boredom, and a bad manicure @ a salon today, and I was ready for something new. I decided to give one of my new Zoya swatches a shot today - Yara. It's a gorgeous color! A deep olive green with yellow sparkles in it. I love it but I still felt it was just a bit dull. Needs something brighter. I topped it off with a new NYX swatch I received from the Hautelook NYX sale a few weeks ago. It's a flakie polish called Pink Avenue - which isn't all that pink, actually. It's clear with gold/green/yellow flakes in it. I don't see pink, but maybe it might show up in the daylight.

It really made for a beautiful combination! I imagine this NYX color would light up just about any color. If you can get your hands on this (where do they sell NYX, anyway? I don't think I've ever seen it in stores) I definitely recommend grabbing a bottle.

Back on the subject of is the set of 4 NYX polished I received. I am in love with them all! I'm quite impressed with the uniqueness of their colors.

Chanel Black Pearl

Hi everyone!
Unfortunately, I didn't get to wear the Japanese 3D nails last time..
I was going to wear them to my friend Yapa's going away party/Akiko and Jaci's birthday party, but there was a LOT going on that day, and I accidentally forgot them at home. Next party, I promise!

This time, I'm going to post something special, my first high end polish!. It was a little treat to myself at the duty-free. A beautiful slightly shimmery pearly dark turquoise. I must have good taste, because a few weeks after I bought this, Erika told me (and showed me) that it was featured in an article as being the "it" color of the season in NY. ::awesome:: taste- I haz it hehe

Thanks for reading :)

Can we pretend it's Wednesday?

So I wanted to post yesterday for "On weds we wear pink!" but my wrist has been killing me( oh carpel, how I love you so..except not) so lets pretend ;)


This is Jillian from NYX. It was a perfect "Adios summer!" color. Not that it's going to stop me from rocking some brights in the fall. But now that fall is under way, I can say to my beautiful rich browns and reds Come to MAMA! I felt so weird wearing dark colors this summer, like it was against the law.
I added a top coat, also NYX called Sapphire. I don't know why it is called that because it's almost holo like. I took a few blurry shots to show. But on the website for NYX, it looks silver. Herm. I love you online shopping, but this is the reasons that it can be a pain in the ass, crap stock photos!
Look at that sparkle!

Speaking of hologram loveliness... I did this manicure a few weeks ago, and completely forgot to post pics. Its of Nfu Oh #61. This color always sells out fast on so when Julie saw it online, she grabbed it for me. (Mucho Gracias for that, Julie!) I think you can get a bottle now, but be fast, it sells out fast! But that's it for me!
