Nire's Desire: Lingerie and Lemon Ice!

In February 2014, I was lucky enough to review three polishes by Nire's Desire, which you can see HERE.  I was immediately impressed with the formula and colors and have been stalking the store ever since!

Recently, a few colors were discontinued and put on sale, so I rushed over and scooped up a gorgeous nude creme called, appropriately, Lingerie:


This is a great polish. Swatch shows just two coats of this creamy nude. Application was easy, dry time fine, and I love how it looks with my skin tone. It has an oh so subtle shimmer and an almost pinky tone to it in some lighting.


Marco...ignore the cuticles, ugh. I'd rather show you real hands than photo edited mannequin hands though....


One last look:


I was surprised with a second polish for review, this is called Lemon Ice:


Whoa there! Lemon Ice is a seriously neon yellow. It does not, as you see, pull green in photos (ahem, Orly Glowstick, I'm talking about you) nor does it look green in any lights. This is a yellow yellow. LOVE.


I also love that this formula is just as creamy as Lingerie!!

This is two thin, easy to manage coats over one coat of Wet n Wild A Blank Canvas, one coat of Nire's Desire topcoat (which is my current go to topcoat). As most neons do, it dried super quick and very slightly matte.

See the subtle white/blue shimmer? It really gives the color some depth!


If you have not tried Nire's Desire polish, I highly suggest you do!

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!!

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:

With over 300 shades rooted in a healthy philosophy, it’s no surprise that we’re committed to helping you green your beauty routine!
