Color Club Flakkie!! The Uptown over Out The Door Black Hole

Color Club The Uptown is a purple tinted base flakkie polish that turns different colors on the nail.

Unfortunately, not these nails. Take a look, then let's talk more.  First without flash, then with:

Hmm, what to say, what to say....Look at a couple more pics, without flash and with:

I think I goofed here.  I used yellow stopper and then my go to black polish, Out The Door Black Hole.  I think the combo of the two ruined the purple tint and therefore the flakkies, too.  Once I decided I ruined it, I went ahead and added another coat of yellow stopper to the top...bad idea, I think. The macro:

The Uptown itself is a nice polish, the formula is surprisingly smooth considering how flakkie-tastic it is.  It had a decent dry time, too, since it's mostly flakkies and little base.  I need to try it over a purple, perhaps even a light blue or navy, to try to let that purple shine through.

  1. I think it looks great on you! On me, I wasn't super pleased. I used Seche base, two coats Uptown, Seche top. It was thicker, it had too much shrinking for me. Then never really dried properly and got dented the next day. I may have been pressed for time and will try again since its so unique. On you though, it looks nice and light, not too thick and chunky, and it shined nicely for you. Lovely.

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!
