Zoya Beach and Surf Collection Review Part 3

So today I'm reviewing Rory and Shelby!

All photos taken with my Nikon D80. The top pix are out in the sun, middle inside, & thumbs outside.

Zoya describes Rory as: medium mauve pink with lilac tones, gold and silver reflective metallic shimmer accents, and a foil-like finish.  The gentle color of the polish gives the foil finish a softened appearance.

 I <3 Rory! it makes me think of barbie when I have it on but not in an obnoxious way! Def a must have if you are a pink lover!

Zoya describes Shelby as:  Soft but colorful cherry blossom pink with an opaque cream finish. A light girly pink with enough tint to keep it from looking pastel or washed out.

I totally think of pink bubble gum when I have this on!  I had to wonder if this was named after the character Shelby from Steel Magnolias.  I have been told that wasn't the origin!  I was shocked!  she was pink everything and she this totally would have been up her alley!  "you missed a chance to take a whack at weezuh!"

Zoya Beach and Surf Collection Review Part 2

ok so the sun's been off and on for weeks and yesterday was a rainy day so I'm hoping to get a lot done today to be able to get these up asasp!

Introducing Kimber and Lara!

All were taken with my D80 Nikon including the middle 2 done inside

Zoya Describes Kimber as: Rich, bright and saturated medium magenta pink with strong gold metallic shimmer and a foil-like finish. A huge hit of color and a shot of shiny gold metal make the polish look electric.

I was so happy that I was able to catch the awesome shimmer in this color! I was seeing the shimmer everywhere out in the sun! I love pinks and this is a great one!

Zoya describes Lara as: Medium magenta-rose pink with a subtle yellow undertone and a soft cream finish. A soft shade, but with a candy-like pop of color to ensure that it doesn't look flat.

I think Lara is a pink with pop.  A great color if you don't want like a baby pink or bubblegum pink.  Kinda reminds me of the color of one of our halls in high school we called the pepto bismol hall :)  I really love it though! goes on with 2 layers nice and smooth!

*Products sent for review, however, my review is 100% mine!

Zoya Beach and Surf Collection Review Part 1

The Long awaited reviews are starting! I'm doing it in 6 parts to review 1 color from the Beach and then the comparable one from the Surf Collection!

Today I'm reviewing Reagan and Carly!


                                            ^      These were Shot outside with my Nikon D80    ^

Shot by cell phone inside ^    v                                              Shot with Nikon D80 ^  v

Zoya describes Reagan as a deep, cool fuchsia pink with subtle blue undertone and an opaque finish.Reagan packs a lot of color without being excessively bright and is soft but not overly muted.

I didn't see much of the blue undertone but I do say it packs a lot of color!

Zoya describes Carly as very rich, bold, red-toned dark purple with iridescent red and silver metallic shimmer and a dense foil finish. This bold color and sparkling foil finish make Carly like gift wrap for your nails!

I definitely see the red more out in the sunlight or daytime and the purple in the evening.

I loved both colors!They went on with 2 coats and took no time to dry :)  

well, I now use Liquid Palisade to help with the edges!  still working on it but loving this stuff! got it from via ebates!

What do you guys think of the colors?

April Birch Box

So I decided to try birch box this month because I've been disappointed with MyGlam and Julep. So on with the box!
Pretty Box!

The Welcome Card

The description of what's in the box
All that was inside the box

Now, I could say this was going to be lovely to try except it's expired.
We were notified by BB that if that was true, we would get 100 points to compensate.

Mini Age of Aquarius Color Club! My first Color Club! <3 it!

Nice Sample of Juicy Couture!

Perfect timing for me! Can't wait to try!

An extra this month was these tape strips so your girls stay covered properly. CUTE!

So over all I was really impressed with this box! I hope this continues as I see myself actually using this stuff!
What do you guys think? Anyone else BB?
