Valentine's Day Comes Early! 4 Liquid Sky Lacquer Valentine's Day Polishes!

I am very excited to share 4 awesome Valentine's Day polishes by Liquid Sky Lacquer.  Carolyn sent me four beauties to review and they are all just lovely - this is going to be a photo heavy post!  Get ready to edit those wishlists, these 4 polishes are on point.

PS: These 4 polishes will be available in the Liquid Sky Lacquer store on Jan 18th!!  Follow her Facebook page for more details.

Left to right: Bee Mine, Cupid's Bow, Butterly Kisses, Candlelight Dinner

We might as well go in the same order as the picture above.  First up, Bee Mine, a white crelly with pink hearts (true story: this is my first polish with heart glitter. Perfect timing or what?) black, yellow, and pink glitter, hexes and microglitters.

This is two coats of Bee Mine over Zoya Jacqueline, an offwhite creme polish.  Bee Mine is a breeze to apply except for the hearts.  Any shape glitter takes a little effort!  The microglitters and hexes cover really well, but you're going to work a little for the hearts.  Totally worth it!

Next is Cupid's Bow, a clear base glitter(bomb) topper with pink bows (so, so sweet) white and pink glitters. This is adorable! I layered two coats over Chanel May (pink) and He Loves Me, a gorgeous green shimmer by A Girl Obsessed.

Macro goodness. I dig the bows!  The bows were easy to grab and the microglitters and rest of the glitters were just amazing.  Dry time was decent.  Formula itself is really smooth and easy to apply.  Bow decal is from Vinyl Stickers by Sam on etsy.

Third, let's check out Butterfly Kisses. It is a holo sheer grey base with red and silver glitters, also a scattering of silver butterflies. I layered two coats over Sally Hansen Wet Cement. Of the three with shape glitter, this was the most stubborn in giving up the goods.  The holo in this polish is amazing!!  It would look good over a light blue, grey, black, etc.  Very girly and sweet.

And last but not least, this is Candelight Dinner, a burgundy, almost wine colored holo. First, the name is just perfect. As is the formula, and my swatches show two coats with topcoat. The holo is finer than Liquid Sky Lacquer's usually superintenseholywow holo, but it's still stunning with it's subtly. This color is also such a pretty shade and would look good on any skintone.

I am so impressed with these polishes.  Bee Mine and Cupid's Bow are my favorites, I know I'll reach for both of those year round.

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!
