Zoya Seashells - Swatches and Review

Zoya Seashells Collection

Last week I reviewed Zoya's new collection of cream polishes, Sunsets, which you can find here, and today I have the second new collection, Seashells, six brand new pixie dust shades! My very first Zoya nail polish was Arabella, and I've been completely hooked on all the pixie dusts ever since, so I was beyond excited to buy this new collection.

I can confirm that they all look amazing.

Zoya Sunsets - Swatches and Review

Zoya Sunsets Swatches

Today I have some swatches of the new Zoya Sunsets collection! When Zoya announced their new summer collections - Sunsets, a set of six bright one-coat cream polishes, and Seashells, six brand new pixie dusts - I only had intentions to pick up the latter collection, but then Zoya's latest BOGO sale happened, and I couldn't resist getting both.

As mentioned, all six polishes in the cream collection are advertised as saturated one-coaters. Do they live up to this claim? Somewhat.

Zoya Naked Manicure Review

I have never really loved the look of French manicures on my own nails. For as long as I've been doing nail art, I've had terribly stained nails. I wear dark colors; I swatch a lot; sometimes I don't bother with a base coat. And, to top it all off, I accidentally sliced a very noticeable chunk out of my middle nail a few weeks back.

So, when Zoya announced that their new Naked Manicure collection would correct these problems, I was skeptical. But I decided to give the products a try anyway, and I was beyond impressed with the results.

My sister recently mailed me one of the new polishes from Sinful Colors' Halloween 2015 Collection, and I decided that now would be the perfect time to swatch it, along with some of the other SC Halloween polishes that I picked up off-season last year.

Fall Glitter Gradient + Tutorial

When I swatched Frenzy Polish's "All Magic Comes with a Price" three weeks ago, I couldn't help but think that it would be perfect to use in my next glitter gradient. I absolutely love the combination of gold and black, so I paired it with Zoya "Willa" to create this fall-inspired mani.
