NOTD 10/26/12: Zoya Feifei

Hello again! After my last manicure I remembered how much I love Zoya, so next I wanted to do a polish from their fall 2012 collection I hadn't tried out yet. Here is Feifei.

 Three coats plus top coat. Flash.

You really can't appreciate how beautiful Feifei is. She is a so much more shiny, sparkly, and eye catching than I could capture on camera. Sometimes she is blue, sometimes grey, and sometimes both.  There is the most beautiful rainbow sparkle effect that you can really see in the last picture.

Formula was as expected- a little on the sheer side, but three thin coats covered decently. 

I'm planning on changing my mani before halloween so I'll talk to you all soon.
Thanks for reading!

NOTD 10/22/12: Zoya Ziv

Did you miss me? Probably not. You probably didn't even notice I was gone! Well, I was. And now I have a lovely new camera and I'M BACK. 
Today I'm going to be sharing my latest manicure that I did yesterday, which happened to be my 19th birthday. I was planning on the obvious- Deborah's Happy Birthday- but deep down I knew that lazy me wouldn't want to remove it in a few days. I opted for a new shade from Zoya's Ornate collection for Winter 2012 with a similar wow factor. Here she is: Zoya Ziv.

Two coats plus top coat. Natural light.

Ziv is more than just a plain gold foil- she has textured gold pieces that really add an extra dimension to this polish. In some lights, she can look messy and bumpy because of the texture, but I don't mind. I think Ziv is a gorgeous polish- very holiday-esque.

The formula was great: thick, in a good way and opaque in two coats.
I also picked up Storm from this collection and the Gilty kit. Looking forward to posting those!

Thanks for reading!

I'm not dead...

...but I am dying of homework. Sorry for being an unreliable schmuck. I miss posting a lot and hope to start again soon.
