New To Me Indie: 3 Polishes & Top Coat By Nire's Desires

Is it Sunday already??  Ugh!

Well, I have some pretty pictures for you to ease your pain, LOL.  I have 3 polishes and a super shiny topcoat from new to me indie company, Nire's Desire!

The polishes I received are, from L to R: A Mother's Love, Jezebel, American Muscle, The Shining Top Coat



Aren't the labels cool? I appreciate a square bottle, too. Of the three, honestly, I cannot pick a favorite. I am in serious LOVE with all three of these colors and their formulas!!!! Let's just go in order from the pic. First up is A Mother's Love. This is a lilac shimmery polish with a gorgeous green/teal/blue tint to it. This is two coats but it really only needed one to be opaque and so, so pretty.



These swatches show The Shining Topcoat, which is a quick dry, super shiny topcoat. More on that at the end of this post!

Next up is the stunning holo, Jezebel. This is two coats of Jezebel, no topcoat. What a great holo this is! The pink pigment is so bright and clear, not cloudy or greyed out at all. Most impressively, the polish was not sheer at all! It did need two coats for full coverage, but not even a hint of a third is needed. It dried quickly and the holo is stunning.



Such a bright and fun color!!

Last but certainly not least is American Muscle. This may be my favorite dark polish of all times. First of all, look at the color:



AMAZING deep color! The formula is spot on, couldn't be better. It has a great consistency, was opaque in one coat!! This shows two coats but still, one is enough for non-photo-taking-crazy-polish-blogger types. And I love the name, too perfect.

Lastly, the topcoat! I applied one coat of The Shining over A Mother's Love and as I write this, it's been over 36 hours of wear. ZERO chips! My cuticles look wretched tonight so I am not giving you a photo update, but this topcoat is very impressive! It dried quickly - as in quicker than Seche but not as fast as HK Girl - and it super shiny! I always wrap my tips with topcoat to prevent wear, but I do that with all topcoat so that doesn't factor in my opinion. You should wrap your tips, too, it'll help your mani stay intact longer.



I am SOOO impressed with this brand!! You MUST check it out!!!

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!
