Mani Round Up: June 13, 2017

Happy Tuesday!

It was a busy week last week so I have pretty meager offerings for you to round up!


China Glaze Wanderlust: Oh, my goodness. Do I love this color! It is hard to see, but this otherwise basic pale pink has an orangey shimmer throughout. You can see the shift in the bottle near the "glaze" word in the label. SO pretty! This is two coats and HK Girl topcoat.

PS: What do you think of the new nail shape? I love my squares but the second one corner breaks, the whole thing looks haggard, so they had to go!


China Glaze Wanderlust with floral waterslide decals: Do you ever want your nails to look different without doing anything to them? LOL. Laziness at it's finest. I saw my boyfriend a few times last week, more than usual, so I didn't have time for brand new manis. I added these rando waterslide decals for a quick change.


Color Club Birthday Suit: Sigh! Super fail this week. I had to squeeze in a mani before work last week, so I grabbed a consistently flawless neutral polish. As you can see, I forgot to take pics until I was doing my drive by beach detour before work (daily necessity) and realized I needed a shot. I figured anything with a beach in it was forgivable. This is Westbrook Beach in Westbrook, CT, and the mani has two coats with HK Girl topcoat.


Zoya Chantal: Ooh, do I love this color. No matter the season or occasion, Chantal is the perfect neutral! This and Taylor, which I like a smidge more since it is slightly pinkier where Chantal is a little yellower, are two polishes in constant rotation. Two perfect coats and topcoat.

Sad week! LOL. I will try to make up for it next week!

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!
