My First Island Girl Nail Polish: Molokai Dream - Mani Part 1

I am truly blessed to have met so many sweet women (and a few men!) in the nail polish community.

Thanks to the kindness of a polish pal, I am now - finally - the proud owner (hoarder) of two Island Girl nail polishes!  Thank you, Vicki!

The macadamia nuts were awesome, and already gone, yum! The polishes are Hana Coast and Molokai Dream. You already know I reached for that pink first!

This is 3 coats of MD. This is a pretty inexpensive polish line, only $3 or so each, and the color is a neon, so 3 coats was expected. The first coat was streaky, the second coat was decent, and the third sealed the deal. The dry time was impressive. The polish dried a shiny matte but itself, almost a vinyl finish, but I added a coat of A Girl Obsessed's new topcoat, which I am testing.

It is a very feminine color, bright without being too loud, neon without being too neon. Closeup:

Pretty, right? There are a ton of Island Girl colors I'd love to try, so if you have the hookup on this polish, which is only sold in Hawaii and Las Vegas, please let me know! Contact me on Facebook HERE and on Instagram @Ljchrystal.

I do love this color, but I knew I had a perfect indie glitter to use with this...

Which indie polish did I pick!?!

Stay tuned until Wednesday to see the finished product - Part 2!

  1. Brat! Seriously, that pink is super pretty. Makes your hands look tan and compliments your skin tone.

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!

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:
