Mani Round Up: September 12, 2017

Here is what I wore last week on my nails:

Zoya Chantal: Is there a better neutral polish than Chantal? I had a busy week at work last week, so I had to have some professional nails. This is two perfect coats and topcoat.

Zoya Chantal and China Glaze Fairy Dust: I used to love the Mercurial Magpie blog, and I remember Kirby was a huge fan of Fairy Dust! I think she coined the hashtag #fairydustthatshit LOL. Even professional nails can get a dose of fairy dust, right? This is just one coat over Chantal to give the mani a lil' somethinsomethin.

Zoya Brynn: It has been an unintentional Zoya week here but the formulas are just always so perfect and reliable that it is easy to make this brand my go-to. I got these awesome flower pants from Target, they have a black background and muted floral print ($20 - amazing, silky, so comfy) so I wanted a polish to match. This is actually a lot brighter than the pants, but whatever, it still goes. Lastly, please note that I did this mani 10 mins before bed and woke up with perfect nails, thanks to my HK Girl topcoat.

Hmm...Looks like that is it, LOL. It happens!

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!
