Floral Nail Art Inspired By My Tank Top Pattern: What Do You Think?

A few weeks ago, I purchased a pink tank top with a super pretty pattern and thought "This would make a great mani."

LOL, okay...so maybe I saw it and bought it solely because it would make a great mani. You got me! It was like $5, no shame in it!!! :P

Anyway, here is the pattern:

And here is my mani. What do you think??

I used China Glaze Something Sweet for the base.  China Glaze Pink Voltage is the neon pink flower color. Zoya Keiko is the purple accent on the flowers.  The leaves are Wet & Wild Stand The Test of Lime and the white is A Blank Canvas, both from the new Pop Art Craze collection.  I have no clue what the jade color is, LOL, but if anyone's dying to know, PM me on Facebook and I'll figure it out!

I need some finer brushes for the petal lines, I think.  But it's really not so bad! :)

Hope you like it! I ended up liking it more as time went on...I wore it for over 24 hours, you know that's serious stuff, haha.

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!
