Gabriella Nail Lacquer's Pastel Teal : My New Favorite Summery Blue!

Today I have a polish to show you...but the brand is a bit of a mystery!

I found this little gem at a beauty supply in Texas in 2013. There were NO other polishes by this brand. This little beauty was sitting in a random spot on a shelf, all alone, so I decided to take it home with me.

Let me state, for the record, that I have no idea what in the spinning-color-wheel-hell of colors "Pastel Teal" is supposed to look like, but this isn't it.

 This is a perfect Robin's Egg Blue, or even, neon Sky Blue, if you want to get wordy. Does anyone else see Teal in this? I didn't think so. Anyway, I love this color. But I don't love "Pastel Teal," LOL.

So, I can't tell you where to get this polish, because this was the only one and I don't remember which beauty store I found it at...although, I know it wasn't Sally's. It was either Beauty Avenue, Sarah's, or another random Texas store.

 I would actually like a few more from this brand, because it was inexpensive, highly pigmented, and a great creme polish in two coats. And, since it claims to be "Pastel" the 2 coat creaminess is even more impressive.

Have you seen this brand? If so, please tell me where!! Find me on Facebook at My Boyfriend Hates Makeup!

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!
