Zoya Cashmeres Fall 2013

-Press Sample
Hey Everyone!  I'm back with six gorgeous cremes from Zoya...The Cashmeres for fall 2013!  A cream finish is my favorite and I'm always happy to see that Zoya releases new ones frequently!  Here are the six newest...


Zoya describes Flynn as: "a camel brown nude creme."  I really like Flynn.  She's about the same color as my skin right now since I have a slight tan.  I wouldn't consider Flynn a true nude.. she's more like a light brown ("camel" is a great way to describe her).  I used two coats of Flynn in the above pics.


Zoya describes Louise as: "a chocolate brown creme."  Louise is much darker in low light and more of a true chocolate brown in sunlight.  I'm in love with Louise!  I've been waiting for a dark brown creme for a long time and Louise is amazing!!  She has perfect formula and a shiny finish!  I used two coats.


Zoya describes Livingston as: "a fall red creme."  A girl can never have enough red polish and Livingston is truly gorgeous!  She meshes nicely with my skintone with her "cool" finish.  I love how shiny Livingston is also.  Once again I used two coats.


Zoya describes Pepper as: "a brick red creme."  Pepper is pretty.. I've been noticing brick reds a lot this season.  I'm not a huge fan of this color on me, but the formula is fantastic once again!  Another two-coater.


Zoya describes Hunter as: "a dark sea green creme."  I'm not sure why they just didn't describe her as "a hunter green." lol.  Hunter is one of those polishes that doesn't look too exciting in the bottle, but once on your nails... BAM- gorgeous!!  The finish of Hunter is so amazing.. creamy and shiny at the same time!!  I'm usually not a fan of greens, but Hunter really won me over.  Pictured in the above three pics is three coats.


Zoya describes Sailor as: "a dark navy creme."  Sailor really isn't that dark.  In direct sun, she's almost a dark cornflower blue and in natural light, she's a dusty navy, not a true navy.  Regardless, the color is really pretty!!  I used two coats of Sailor.

**You can purchase The Cashmeres from Zoya now on for $8 each.

KBShimmer Fall Collection 2013

-Press Sample
Hiya Everybody!!  Today I have an absolutely gorgeous Fall Collection to share with you from KBShimmer!!  Each of these polishes is so unique and so perfect for autumn.. I just love them all!!  If I mention top coat is used, it's KBShimmer's own Clearly on Top fast drying top coat (which is my current fave-- seriously, it's awesome!!)  On to the collection...

You Autumn Know:

You Autumn Know is such a perfect Fall color!!  This polish was inspired by the first snow of the year covering the leaves.  You Autumn Know is a white crelly that contains orange, purple and yellow hex glitters and small bar glitters in the same colors.  I used three coats followed by top coat... awesome formula!!

Every Nook & Cranberry:

Every Nook & Cranberry is a satin matte berry pink polish with pink, gold and bluish shimmer.  I love a matte finish & a great formula and Every Nook & Cranberry has BOTH!!  I LOVE this color, especially with my skintone!!  I used just two coats in the above pics... wonderful opacity with this one!!


Turbulence is the other polish in this collection with a satin matte finish.  It's a gorgeous light charcoal grey that contains blue, pink and silver flakes.  This one has the same awesome formula as Every Nook & Cranberry.  Once again, I only used two coats.

Teal Another Tail:

Ok, I'm not gonna lie.. In the bottle, I was just kinda "meh" about Teal Another Tail, but once on my nails.... YOWZA... it's so gorgeous and so deep!!  It has a light turquoise base and strong shimmers in  pink (almost a duo chrome shimmer).  The finish is a little gritty, but after a generous coat of top coat, everything is smooth.  Pictured above is two coats on Teal Another Tail followed by top coat.

Vicious Circles:

Vicious Circles is my personal favorite from this collection!  It's such a gorgeous red-almost-pink jelly that contains silver holo circles, silver holo hex glitter and silver holo micro slices.  I used three thin coats of Vicious Circles followed by top coat.  Simply amazing!!

You Go Ghoul!:

Yay!!  You Go Ghoul! is a perfect Halloween polish!!!  It's a thicker black jelly that contains purple, pink and orange glitters in various shapes and sizes.  I used three coats of You Go Ghoul! followed by top coat in the above three coats.

Excuse Me, I Blurped:

Excuse Me, I Blurped is a blue-purple that wears much more blue on me.  It wasn't easy for me to capture a great picture of this one because the reflection from the light seems to cover the depth of the glitters.  Most of the glitters in Excuse Me, I Blurped are pink and blue with just a hint of gold.  I used three thin coats followed by top coat.  This one had absolutely NO staining, which was really impressive with a blue this rich.

**KBShimmer's Fall Collection will be available September 1st on and!!

KBShimmer 5 Year Anniversary Celebration Duo

-Press Sample
Hi Guys..  Today I have two super pretty polishes from KBShimmer.  These two were created in celebration of five years in business for KBShimmer.  I absolutely love KBShimmer.. all their products are spectacular-- the lip balms, lotions, cuticle oil, soaps... along with their polishes and other products.  I HIGHLY recommend any product from KBShimmer!!  On to the celebration duo..

The Grape Beyond:

The Grape Beyond is a dusty purple polish containing subtle blue shimmer and it dries matte.  It's so pretty!!  I really love matte finishes and this one is gorgeous!!  The formula is perfect.  I used two coats of The Grape Beyond in the above pictures.

Clearly on Top over The Grape Beyond:

Nine times out of ten, I'll eventually add top coat to any polishes that has a matte finish.  I love how top coat brings out all the hidden glitters or flecks or whatever the polish may contain.  KBShimmer makes a fast-drying top coat called Clearly On Top and it's my current favorite top coat.  Be sure to add one to your cart the next time you're shopping on their won't regret it!!

Would Jubilee It? over The Grape Beyond:

Christy, the creator of KBShimmer added all her favorite glitters to Would Jubilee It?  It contains circles, hex and micro glitters in turquoise, silver, fuchsia, and aqua.  I used one generous coat of Would Jubilee It? over The Grape Beyond followed by Clearly On Top.  The base of The Grape Beyond is just the right color to show off all the beautiful glitter in Would Jubilee It?

**Happy 5 Years to KBShimmer!!!  This is such a gorgeous combo that was created to celebrate such a milestone!!  Head over to or and pick up these polishes and many other great products!!  I'll be back soon with KBShimmer's new Fall Collection-- OMG, it's so amazing!!!!
