Mani Round Up: November 7, 2017

Happy Tuesday - the most polished day of the week!


OPI Infinite Shine You Can Count On It: I love this pinky nude, but I always forget about it with my plethora of Zoya nudes. This is two coats and Glisten&Glow topcoat.


OPI Infinite Shine You Can Count On It topped with Literary Lacquers Original Virtue: Welcome to I Wanted My Nails Done Without Re-Doing My Nails, Case #53953. I added two coats of peachy sheer Original Virtue. The gold shimmer gets me!


Nire's Desire Loves' A Fire: Halloween was last week, so for Tuesday I sported this darling polish from Nire's Desire, one of my fave indies. This is three thin coats and topcoat.


Nire's Desire Lingerie: When I was looking for my orange ND polish, I grabbed this one, which I totally forgot about! I am going to try very hard to use my neutral indies and not always reach for a quick Zoya creme job. This is two coats and topcoat.


Nire's Desire Lingerie topped wth MaxxFactor Fantasy Fire: How lame does this look? FF is amazing, but apparently not over a neutral topcoat. Womp, womp.


SuperChic Lacquer Figment of My Reality: How gorgeous is this? Indies are coming out to play! This is two perfect coats and topcoat. It isn't a fall or winter color, but it was 70 degrees when I wore this so it totally works. I decided it needed a lil' somethinsomethin, so I added an L decal and a little star decal. Love how it gives the polish a frosty and seasonal vibe.

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!

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:
