Mani Round Up: May 30, 2017

Personal note before we begin best friend, fuzziest buddy, thunder buddy for life, favorite sentient being in the entire world, my girl Shelby, is having surgery as we speak. To whomever you pray, please do...what ever good vibes you have...please send them! It should be fairly simple, it's a noncancerous but annoying to her growth on her eye, but I am still a nervous dude (Shelby would call me dude, not Mom) over here.

This is my girl:


Thank you in advance for the well wishes, good energy, and prayers for my sweet bear.

Ok, on to the real reason you are here: the manis!

Zoya Esty: new from the 2017 Wanderlust collection, Esty is a vibrant fuchsia creme that is perfectly opaque in two coats. Perfect, easy, Zoya: the norm.


Zoya Cora: yup, looks like another Zoya filled week here! I am loving the new cremes. Cora is the perfect BRIGHT ORANGE but not too bright.


Just an FYI, cuz I am a nerd, but check out how perfectly Cora matches the Rosetti purse that I snagged from Kohl's for just $9 on clearance! I love it!!


Zoya Sawyer: I am loving the newest Zoya collex! Sawyer is a polish that I didn't think I would like on, but I do! It's a tangerine color, perfectly reminds me of popsicles dripping down your hand while you eat it outside in the sun. This is two perfect coats and topcoat.


Zoya Arbor: I think I keep picking up my new Zoya because I haven't gotten a full review post to you just yet. Arbor is a seriously ugly pretty color. The formula is flawless - just ONE coat and topcoat shown here! But the it? hate it? What do you think?

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!
