New To Me Indie: 3 Polishes From Shirley Ann Nail Lacquer

Happy Friday!

Today I have three polishes from a new-to-me indie company, Shirley Ann Nail Lacquer, to show you.  We have a jelly, a crelly, and a glitter topper, so there's something for everyone!

The three polishes I received are Not Your Mama's Cranberry Sauce, When The Ball Drops, & Molly Mae.


Let's go in order from this pic.  First up, the hysterically named "Not Your Mama's Cranberry Sauce" which is a brilliant red jelly with gold sparkles.  This is three thin coats, no topcoat.



I am not the world's biggest jelly fan due to the usual VNL (visible nail line, the panty lines of the nail world), but this has nice coverage.  It dried fairly quickly and really does look "squishy" to the touch, the way a good jelly should look!

Next up is When The Ball Drops, a glitter bomb topper.  I used two coats over Verity Flamenco Purple.  This formula was slightly thick for a glitter top coat but it is stuffed to the brim with glitter so the base has to be slightly thick to hold it all in there! The dominant colors are a vibrant blue and there are some larger gold hex in there, too.



Couple more shots!  I bet if you used 3-4 coats, you could make this opaque and have the shiniest nails EVER.

Last but not least, the sweet pink of the bunch, Molly Mae.  This is two coats of Molly, no topcoat.  This is a seriously sweet color.  It looks almost watermelon pink but in the light there is an amazing lilac shimmer!! It also has some darker pink micro glitters which give it nice depth on the nail.  This is my favorite, by far.  Don't tell me you're surprised!



How pretty is this!?!?

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!
