Indie Review! Black Tie Parade and Unicorn Love by Polish Addict!

Woo hoo! I have an indie review post for you today that I am pretty excited about!

I am sure you already know Polish Addict Nail Color, also frequently known as Polish Addict by Laura Sanchez. She so kindly sent me two polishes to review, Black Tie Parade with is a black jelly with fabulous multi-colored glitters, and Unicorn Love, a pretty pastel micro glitter bomb.

Let's get to the photos, shall we?

I am assuming (with the PINK on this page smacking you in the face at all times) that most of my readers know I dislike dark polish. Well, I am happy to say that Black Tie Parade has made a liar out of me!!

Love this!  This is a perfect formula, with the perfect amount of glitters in the jelly.  Dry time is a little longer than usual creme formulas, as all jellies tend to be.  In the swatch below, this is 3 coats of BTP with no undies:

Here is 2 coats of BTP over 1 coat of Maybelline Black Onyx (great black creme formula).


Come a little closer, please!


Same shot over a black base.  Awesome, right? It's creates it's own jelly sammich!

Next up is Unicorn Love:


This is three coats of UL with no base.  It is opaque and SO full it glitter it almost feels textured, which I loooove!  If you add one thin coat of your favorite topcoat, it smooths right out.  Dry time was quicker than usual since it's SO packed with these micro glitters.


If you follow me on IG - which I hope you do, I am @ljchrystal - than you've seen this pic already.  I couldn't do a Unicorn Love mani without a Pegasus decal, right?

I guess I should've used a black striper polish to give it a horn! Haha. I'll do that next time since I am def wearing this polish again soon, it's so cute!


You can find Laura's awesome line in her Big Cartel Store HERE and on Facebook HERE!  I def recommend checking this out!  (For my TX polish friends, she's a local!! :))

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!
