Superchic Lacquer: Gaslighted Collection Part 1: Coming Unblued & Figmint Of My Reality

Happy Wednesday!

Sorry for no post on Monday, the past weekend just got away from me.

I was able to snag 5 of the most beautiful polishes I have seen floating around lately...this, to me, is the most perfect collection for spring.  Have you seen the Gaslighted collection from Superchic Lacquer (home of Wonder Beauty products)?  If not, feast your eyes on these babies:

Aren't the bottles cute? Got to love cute packaging!  I also want to mention how fast these babies arrived! I know there has been some drama with certain makers taking *forever* to ship polishes, so it is worth noting Jen at Wonder Beauty is FAST and I really appreciate that!! I swatched all 5 (obviously) and did some nail art as well (well, what I call nail art, LOL), so I am going to stretch these out into at least a couple posts.

Today I am going to show you the gorgeous shimmery mint green, Figmint of My Reality, and the sky blue, Coming Unblued!  First, check out Figmint.  This is three thin coats with HK Girl topcoat.

How amazing is the shimmer? Mint green lovers, this is a must have polish. The pink and blue tone underneath is breathtaking, the pics do it no justice!

I added some teal bird decals from Vinyl Stickers by Sam:

Coming Unblued is a sweet baby blue with a pink flash. Swatches show three thin coats with HK Girl topcoat.

I am absolutely longing for summer and CB is the perfect sky blue. I sponged on Figmint on my tips and added a palm tree Moon Sugar Decal. I love how this came out! The colors work together perfectly for a gradient, the formulas are spot on.

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!

My Top 10 Zoya Polishes!!

Zoya is a nail polish company that you can be proud to use!

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:
