Fall Polishes: Zoya Entice & Ignite Collections

For entirely selfish reasons, I’m ready for it to be fall. One – it’s ragweed season right now, which I’m massively allergic to, so I’m ready for it to just be over. Two – I’ve been updating my fall wardrobe and I’m ready to start wearing my pretty new things. Three – so the barista at Starbucks will stop giving me a funny look because I ordered a hot drink when it’s 85 & 70% humidity outside.  Soon. When October finally does  ...

Swatches: Zoya Naturel Deux

As much as I’ve been enjoying the summer weather…. who am I kidding? It’s averaging 80-some degrees with 70% humidity, and even though I love warm weather it’s starting to feel a little bit oppressive.

The fun thing about the sets is they correspond to each other so you can mix, match or layer them. Between them, there are a total of twelve shades: Tickled Rocha  ...

Review: Formula X for Sephora in Perfection

Before the Formula X for Sephora nail polishes were released, I picked up Pyrotechnic as 100-point perk and was really impressed with the quality, even if I’m not a huge wearer of red polish. They recently started offering another Formula X 100-point mini, so of course I snatched it up. This time the shade is called Perfection. Perfection is a muted grey-lavender, which is a bit more up my alley than Pyrotechnic was. It’s a great transitional spring color that will look just as  ...
