Orly Blush - Spring 2014 Collection! So Pretty!

Every Sunday is so bittersweet - the weekend is half over but there is still a full day to enjoy.  For your enjoyment today, I have all 6 of the Orly Blush collection, 6 sweet shades released for Spring 2014.  I did purchase all 6 of these, and I am really glad I did!

Orly is really killing it right now!  My favorite polishes are the moment, mainstream brands anyway, are all Orly, including quite a few of these!  Group shot:

Let's take a look at each one.  First, this is Flawless Flush.  This polish needs only two thin coats for instant perfection.  Light lavender, almost a pink, filled with shimmer, this is an instant favorite polish of mine.

Next up is First Flush, a coral/rose creme.  This is another winner, gorgeous in person and easy to apply.  No issues at all.  As a pink fan, this is another major yes for me!

The third polish I want to show you is Naked Canvas.  Are you surprised there is a white polish in here?  I am but it's actually a welcome surprise!  Hard to capture in the photos, NC has a gorgeous shimmer and is opaque in three coats.

Next, here is Cheeky. LOVE this one!  This is a gorgeous peach with gold flecks.  I used three coats but you could probably get away with two.  The formula is thin but builds nicely and the gold flecks give it so much depth.

And, here is Dare To Bare, a nude creme that is opaque in 2 coats!  Win, win, win all around.

Last but not least, this is Classic Contours, the deepest shade of the six.  Opaque in two coats, nice formula.  This is more purple than pink and reminds me more of fall than spring.  Anyone else thinking that?

So, as a whole, what do you think?  Though a few aren't as 'spring' like as you may desire, all 6 are ladylike, dainty colors that I know I'll reach for over and over again.

You can find ORLY on their standalone site and select retailers, as well as beauty supply stores

Thanks for stopping by!

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:


With over 300 shades rooted in a healthy philosophy, it’s no surprise that we’re committed to helping you green your beauty routine! That’s why each year we give you the opportunity to exchange any old nail polish bottles that you may have laying around your house collecting dust, or that are not BIG5FREE formulas, for brand new toxin-free* Zoya Nail Polish shades. You can rest assured that your unwanted polishes will be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.
