Comparison Post! 8 Classy Neutral Polishes! Cult Nails, Essie, Orly, butterLONDON, Wet & Wild, Zoya, Julie G, & Verity!!

Yes, I do own a calendar.

I am perfectly aware it is summertime and I "should" be posting neons. BUT, this is my blog and I'll post what I want to, LOL.

I have been on a serious neutral kick and I am loving it!

Neutral, or nude, polishes are classy, timeless, and always appropriate.

Speaking of being ultra classy, cool, always on pointe and lovely, Happy Birthday to my Aunt Donna!  I don't think she's a regular reader of MBHM, but if you see this - Happy Birthday, Donna! Love you!

I have 8 different polishes for you, and I will try to arrange them lightest to darkest! There is a perfect nude for every skin tone, and maybe you'll find yours here!

First up, a very light neutral from Zoya called Jacqueline.  This is two coats of creme polish:


Next up, my current fave, Essie Topless & Barefoot:


butterLONDON Cuppa is also great.  2 coats, flawless. (Accent pink is Model City Cookies & Milk).


Next up is Julie G Birthday Suit.  I love the pinky toned color and the formula.  The name is pretty cute as well, without being offensive.


Orly Prelude To A Kiss is perhaps my favorite polish here.  This has a swipe of Kawaii Lacquers Holo Topcoat as well.  The formula is so pretty and it is also a pinky toned color.


Cult Nails Baker was recently on the blog.  This is a much more tan, brown based neutral.  2 coats, and sparkly to boot.  Love this color!


Next up is Cappuccino by Verity.  This is three coats of Cappuccino and unfortunately, there is still VNL, aka Visible Nail Line.  Not my favorite.


And last but not least, here is My Private Viewing by Wet & Wild.  This is also a brown toned neutral, a great color with a great formula.


There you have it!  My favorites on this page are Essie Barefoot & Topless, Orly Prelude to a Kiss, and butterLONDON Cuppa.  

Which do you like the best?  If your favorite neutral polish is NOT listed here, please comment here or on Facebook so I can check it out!  Thank you!

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!

My Top 10 Zoya Polishes!!

Why? Not only are they 5-free, but every year they do an "earth day" promo, where you can purchase Zoya polish at half price - IF you promise to send them back old bottles of polish to be recycled properly by Zoya.  You can also donate your polishes to a local charity and it still counts as part of their promotion.

Here are the details:

With over 300 shades rooted in a healthy philosophy, it’s no surprise that we’re committed to helping you green your beauty routine!
