China Glaze Sea Goddess Textures: Wish On A Starfish, Tail Me Something, & Teal The Tide Turns

I have to admit, when I opened this press sample package from China Glaze, I squealed with happiness.  I had already seen pictures of the Sea Goddess texture polishes floating around and when I received the press release info, I was instantly in LOVE.

China Glaze sent me the following:


How amazing are the colors in the bottles?  Will the swatches hold up?

First up is Wish On A Starfish.  This is one of my FAVORITE texture polishes!  It is a cotton candy pink that has a gorgeous gold sheen.  The polish dries so quickly, as texture tends to do.  This is two coats, no topcoat.  No issues at all!


You know I have a few more pics of this!

Next up is Teal The Tide Turns.  From the bottle, it does not look like the polish will be textured much at all, and on the nail, I am sorry to say, it is not really textured much.  Check it out:


See how less texture-y it looks?  The color itself is a pretty teal, but I don't really like the darker green/almost black glitter. In sum, this one does not have the same texture as the others.

Last but not least, Tail Me Something is a purple texture polish.  Love the color of this one.  It has a similar great formula to Wish On A Starfish, with adequate glitters, dry time, and texture consistency.


I do love this color!

Wish on a Starfish is by far my favorite.  I will def pick this up again!

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!
