Nail Art Society - January Bag Review And Manicure

Nail Art Society is a monthly subscription service that comes with one complete manicure!  I was able to review the December bag for you, which had 2 Cherimoya mattes, crystals in assorted sizes, and nail glue.  It also came with Cherimoya nail remover pads in a rose scent, and those smell much better than they work!

Though the price recently jumped to $19.95, I was able to find a deal somewhere to subscribe at the original $10/month price....I'm so sorry, but I forgot the promo code I used and where I found it. Bad blogger, bad bad blogger!  :(

This month's bag came with a Layla Magnetic polish, a Cherimoya nail art color, extra long tweezers, and a small container of Swarovski crystals.  I have not been interested in the magnetic trend - but the value was certainly there, with Laylas retailing for $12-15, depending on which site you find them on.

It came with some How To cards and tutorial info as well, in case you want to copy the tiger stripey mani on the front of the card.

I'm sorry to say, this polish hasn't converted me at all.  I asked my fabulous Facebook audience for tips on using the magnetic polish, and although their tips were great, I'm just not impressed.

In fact, as you can see from the fact that my swatches are just on plastic and not on my nails.  I plan to swap the polish, to be honest.

I tried to accentuate my lines with black. I don't mind the results, but nothing special, in my opinion.

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:


Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.


Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.


Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?



I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!



The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!

PS: Fuck Trump!
