Nail Polish
Zoya Magical Pixie Dust Cosmetically Challenged

    Hands down, Zoya has the best textured polish nail polish. I’ve tried several other brands but none come close to Zoya’s formula. I’ve been trying my hardest to grow my nails out so that I can get great swatches of these gorgeous polishes, but no avail. Life has been skressful! Yes, I said skressful. My PhD program has decided to turn up, or I’m just so vested that I end up biting all my  nails off when things don’t work out the way I want them to. This is a daily occurrence unfortunately. I did notice that this

Zoya Natural

    Zoya is going natural! Their next collection, to be released Jan 1st 2014 is going to be my absolute favorite. As I’m getting older I’m finding myself leaning toward more natural and neutral shades. The natural nail only better… The Zoya Nail Polish Naturel collection masters delicate tone on tone color with six new, full-coverage (opaque) neutral nudes with a pink undertone, that can be worn beautifully alone or stunningly together to create modern tonal accents. The Look: It’s not about matching – it’s about coordinating colors with slight tonal differences to create interest.

Zoya Zenith Collection Swatches

Zoya’s new winter collection titled  “Zenith” has a couple of gorgeous colors. There are two that I know for sure you should own. Since I have nubs I’ll keep the picture limited to just the collage below. I’m still not a fan of polishing nails with nubbs but hey someone has to do it!     Zoya Cassedy: Celestial Silver Metallic Zoya Belinda: Cosmic Purple Metallic Zoya Seraphina: Polaris Silver Metallic: This color is a bit streaky Zoya Payton: Galatic Cranberry With Holographic Glitter: YOU MUST OWN THIS ONE! It’s a bit of a jelly polish but a couple of

Sally Hansen Calypso Blue

  I’ve owned this color for a while but I’ve yet to use it. Since I’m no longer a member of team #nubbnation I decided to allow this gorgeous Caribbean sea blue to grace my nails.  The Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure brand came out with several blue shades and while I was browsing the new nail polishes at WalGreens Sally Hansen Calypso Blue was the prettiest one that caught my eye.   Sally Hansen’s Calypso Blue goes on sheer with it’s first coat. I was a little nervous it was going to be that way after I added additional

For this edition of Makeup Wars we’re talking our Favorite Purple Polish I’m not a huge fan of plain purple polish but I love a purple polish that has an extra bit of oomph to it! When going through my stash to pick out my favorite purple polish I had it narrowed down between three, OPI DS “Temptation”, Zoya’s Pixiedust in “Carter” and Orly “Fowl Play”. After a bout of inny minny minnie moe I finally narrowed it down to Orly’s Fowl Play. What I like about this nail polish is that it is a warm brown purple that has

L'oreal Miss Candy Collection Nail Polish Miss Pixie

  L’oreal Miss Candy Collection is a whole lot of colorful fun. I received 4 nail polishes from the collection for review. There are 7 colors in this collection not pictured are a pretty nice orange, green and yellow. I must warn you of two things before we get to the swatches. 1. I have nubbs.. I know I know I can’t help it my nails just keep darn breaking! 2. These are jellies, if you don’t like jelly polishes then read no further. However, I must warn you the blue one is pretty epic!
