Zoya Sunshine & Summertime - Faye

Zoya...you made this one just for me didn't you?
Faye is a beautiful gilded purple with metallic sparks of copper and gold that shifts like crazy
This is 3 coats of nom
The formula is slightly thin but very easy to work with and very forgiving
Faye is a moody girl and she might be leaning toward a multiple personality, judging by her constantly
switching from soft and girly mauvey with copper shimmer to her bold purple base with exploding golden sparkle and then to a brownish shade with purple glint and gold and copper metal sparks.
This is a must have x100....trust me you need it!

I think this collection is perfect for work, conservative enviornments. I think it will change from office to night very nicely and is woth while for anyone who needs versatility.




Milani Bare in Mind & Teddy-Bare

I will admit these are not my usual kind of colors but they are quite lovely.
I might actually be falling for Bare in Mind.....really!

Let's start with Bare in Mind a peachy nude with  beautiful pink shimmer
In natural light, shade

In full sunlight

Now for Teddy-Bare
In natural light, shade

In full sunlight

Both have a nice formula with 2 coat coverage.
Not my favorite brushes, a bit too skinny but they fan well.
I am a Milani fan and they rarely if ever dissapoint.

My Snakeskin is an Untamed Luxury! Color Club Untamed Luxury collection

Today I have 2 more from the Color Club Untamed Luxury the Covered in Diamonds set.

Untamed Luxury is an teal glitter in a teal jelly base.
This is 2 coats in shade

Normally I would use this as a layering polish but I wanted you to see the color as it is.
In full sunlight it looks like the glitter is more blue/green than teal.
Application was as good as it gets with glitter. Even, smooth and not hard to control.
It stained my nails slightly but not as much as I thought it would.

Ssssssssnakeskin....I just like saying it like that!
A beautiful dark greyed brown base with gold and copper shimmer that gives it a snakeskinish effect.
This is 2 coats in shade

In full sun this looks totally different (I love that) It's more dark grey with copper shimmer and scattered gold sparkle. This is a very unique color and I was so surprised to like it, but I really love it.
Application was smooth and per the usual for Color Club.

What do you think of these two beauties?
Love them? hate them? want to roll around in them?

Color Club Rebel Debutante Preview & swatches Part I

Rebel Debutante is a 9 color collection with 3 coordinating lip gloss' from Color Club.

The collection as described by Color Club:
"Rebellious shades that go from classic to trendy"
"It's a new spin on classic color! It's made for the girl who likes the finer things."
I have the first 4 more neutral shades today for you.

Who are you wearing?

This color is difficult to describe, it is certainly not white or even off white. It's slightly taupe but not truly. My best description whould be a smokey taupe/white creme.
I am not a neutral kind of girl but surprisingly I like this. It's such an unusual shade that I find it much more interesting than typical neutrals. It was slightly sheer so this is 4 coats. Application is smooth and quite the normal high quality that I'm used to from Color Club.

High Society

A lovely light taupe creme. This does not lean to far warm or cool so I believe it would suit most skin tones easily. Application was very smooth with just 2 coats to a nice even opaque.

Beast Dressed List

A slightly brown tinted beige. This leans a little more warm as you can tell by how red my fingers look.
Very smooth even application despite my hurried application. Opaque in two coats.

Charity Ball

Terracotta very simply put. This looks aweful on me and is not a color I would choose for myself.
It's an orange based terracotta. Smooth application, actually this was the smoothest and most opaque of these 4. Nearly opaque on the first coat but not enough for my satisfaction.

In general my opinion is that these first four shades of the collection are great neutral/safe colors.
So if you are looking for work safe colors or some neutrals that are a little more trendy these are perfect.

Diamond Cosmetics Cherry Tobacco

I met with Ange-Marie to play and she brought my prize from her Giveaway
at Scandalously Polished , Diamond Cosmetics Cherry Tobacco! YAY
My very first Diamond Cosmetics polish!
I applied 2 coats of Cherry Tobacco and 1 coat of Seche Vite.

It's a rich blackend Tobacco brown with mega red shimmer.


Application was fabulous. smooth and opaque in 2 coats.


Normally Browns look aweful on me but I like this.
It reminds me of the Sweet tobacco Grandfather WarEagle used to used in cerimonies when I was younger.
I can almost smell it!


What do you think of my lightbox? It's so ugly but it's much better than the no sunshine, freezing my bum off pictures that would be available for the next few months.
