Hahaha, did you see the title of this post?

"Vintage Floral Thermal Valentine's Day Nail Art Featuring Liquid Sky Lacquer 24 Karat Rose!"

Let me show you the finished product, then we can deconstruct:

The photos above, sort of obviously, are the same manicure.  The base polish is a thermal, my first one, from Liquid Sky Lacquer and it is called 24 Karat Rose.  It is a gorgeous hot pink to nude polish - and as you may know, neutrals and hot pinks are two of my favorite things in a polish.

When I saw swatches of this, I actually stalked the re-sale to get one!!  It's pink when cold and neutral when warm.  Both transitions have a gorgeous gold shimmer.

For Valentine's Day, I added decals from Hail The Nails and used stripers and dotting tools to add details. My pinky nail has Cupid's Funeral by A Girl Obsessed.  HK Girl topcoat sealed the whole thing, but I also used a few coats of HK Girl in between to seal each layer.  This baby isn't going to move!



And pics of my left hand!! Aaaaah!

And a few more!!



I really love how this came out, both when neutral and hot pink.  I hope you have a lovely day today, regardless of whatever you're doing!

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!
