Day 1 of A Girl Obsessed Week: 4 NEW Glitter Toppers - Cupid's Funeral, Pink-ing Up The Pieces, Kaleidoscope Eyes & Beautimouse Bowtique

Today is the first day of an unofficial A Girl Obsessed week!

If you're new to the blog, A Girl Obsessed is run by one of my favorites in the polish world, Sam, who is my nail tech guru and real life friend.

*Read to the bottom of THIS post for a MBHM exclusive coupon to the AGO Store!*

Sam has been BUSY and has over a dozen new polishes coming out.  I have a texture, mattes, glitter toppers, a holo, and shreds to show you this week.  I decided it would be easier to do them by TYPE and not collection, so today we have 4 polishes that are clear based glitter toppers!!!!!  Today I have:
  • Pink-ing Up The Pieces - pink & white
  • Cupid's Funeral - black, white & holo bows!!
  • Kaleidoscope Eyes - multi colored
  • BeautiMouse Bowtique - pink, yellow, white glitter, stars, bows, Mickeys!
First up, let's take a look at the OH SO pretty, Pink-Ing Up The Pieces.  It has white, pink, and slightly holo glitters.  Shown over China Glaze You Drive Me Coconuts:

This is a glitter BOMB of epic proportions!  No issues with this at all.  Dry time was actually noticeably quick.  This is two coats over China Glaze Tart-Y For The Party:

And a couple shots with it used as a gradient over Hey Baby, a Gwen Stefani OPI polish:

Next up is Cupid's Funeral.  Without sounding like a jerk, this is my favorite because I asked Sam to make it for me!!  I am spoiled because my friend makes polish!!  This beauty came to life because I texted Sam with a "hey, I haven't seen this yet.  Can you make this for me?" and she did!!  It is black, white, and has holo bows.  This is shown over Zoya Perrie:

Next, I had to go more traditional Valentine, so here it is over a red by Out The Door and then over He Loves Me Not, a red matte also by A Girl Obsessed, which you'll see later this week.  The formula is great.  The bows were a little hard to get out for me so Sam is going to add more bows to the polishes, you'll have zero issues whatsoever!

Next up is Kaleidoscope Eyes, which has multi-colored hex in a clear base. Shown over Zoya Sailor and Sinful Colors Nice Stems from the Spring 2014 collection. I have no problems at all with the polish, but it does look much better over a lighter base, in my opinion.

The swatches show two coats over the bases, no topcoat. The polish has a great formula, no complaints at all.

And, last but not at all least, I know quite a few of you are going to be SO psyched for this - BeautiMouse Bowtique!! When I saw this in our AGO Polish Group, I knew it would look amazing over a mint green, so here it is over OPI Gargantuan Green Grape. BB is a clear base with pink bows, yellow stars, black mickey heads, and various micro glitters.

I sent Sam a text as I was swatching to tell her how GREAT this polish is! I was wary of such big glitters, but mickey heads were just popping right out of the bottle, as were the bows and stars. I def moved the pieces around on the nail, but I had zero issues getting them ON the nail from the bottle. This is a really well made polish!

I also did it over Birthday Suit by Julie G, a super pretty cream colored polish:

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:
