Mani Round Up: October 24, 2017

Happy Tuesday!

I hope you have a great rest of your week.

Here is what I wore on my nails last week:


Meteorites by Sephora Formula X over Prelude to a Kiss by Orly: Welcome to another edition of I wanted my nails done but didn't want to re-do them. I kept Prelude as my base and added one coat of Meteorites by Sephora Formula X. I wore olive green pants, a black sweater, and a black infinity scarf with constellations on it, so this matched perfectly.


Zoya Ming: Hello, new Zoya collection! Ming, a bright red creme from the Party Girls collection, applies perfectly in two coats. It's a bright, in your face red with the subtlest pink shimmer.


Knockout Lacquer It's All Over over Zoya Ming: Doing my nails without doing my nails is my new favorite thing, apparently. Lazy lacqueristas unite! I added two coats of It's All Over over Ming. the base of IAO matched Ming perfectly, so this will definitely be a go-to combo in the future.


SinfulColors Snow Me White: If you need a decent white base, this does the trick, especially for the price. Also, did you know SinfulColors is all one word, not Sinful Colors? Grammar, yall.


Orly Glowstick over SinfulColors Snow Me White: Orly Glowstick was playing tricks on my cell phone's camera, but you get the point. This is two coats over Snow Me White - basecoat is def needed or you'll be up to 4 coats at least.


Sation Down and Dirty Flirty: I picked a go-to Zoya from my neutral drawer, put it back down,  and reached for this instead. I am glad I did! I forgot how complimentary this polish is to my skintone. This is two quick coats and topcoat. It dried quickly and the color is lovely.

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!
