Zoya Nailpolish Review – Marley

Marley can be best described as: Lightest baby lavender touched with a hint of gray-silver and a subtle pearl finish. A versatile, easy to apply and wear pastel shade that’s never chalky or harsh.

Color Family: Purples
Finish: Cream
Intensity: 4 ( 1=Sheer – 5=Opaque )
Tone: Cool
Original Collection: Intimate

Marley was my third choice in the Zoya promo and unfortunately, the first color from Zoya that I don’t like. How sad! I really thought I would love the light color but I think it would be better on a darker skin tone than I have. It’s my first experience with a creamy finish and it took some getting used to as far as application goes. It seemed thicker than I am used to applying and therefore, took me a couple of applications to get it right.

Keep an eye on your statements for additional fees

If you like to pay with plastic at your local department store or independent retailer, get ready: you may be subject to new credit card fees up to 4% of your transaction. A recent legal battle between credit card companies and a group of retailers has ended, and the result is that in order to offset high card transaction and processing fees, retailers can pass the buck along to consumers.

Zoya Nailpolish Review – Kaufda

Kaufda can be best described as: Shiny, warm molten copper with rich orange-red undertones and golden frost. A fitting shade to match the changing fall leaves.

Color Family: Browns
Finish: Metallic
Intensity: 3 ( 1=Sheer – 5=Opaque )
Tone: Warm
Original Collection: Classics

Kaufda was my second choice in the Zoya promo and it’s another bottle of happiness. I love the golden brown color and how it compliments my hands! Definitely took 2 full coats to get full coverage but the end result is a beautiful color with lots of richness.

Zoya Nailpolish Review – Hope

Hope can be best described as: Flashy medium violet-purple with frosty blue, red and silver colored shimmer. A rich regal shade fit for a queen.

Color Family: Purples
Finish: Metallic
Intensity: 4 ( 1=Sheer – 5=Opaque )
Tone: Cool
Original Collection: Classics

When Zoya announced their last promo, you know I jumped all over it. I have a long list of wants so I just went down the list and picked colors. Hope has been on that list for some time and I am so glad I ordered it. It is so incredibly beautiful! I love how it looks against  my skin! I had no problems getting it applied but it definitely took 2 full coats to get full coverage.

FOTD January 19, 2013 – Urban Decay and BFTE Cosmetics

BFTE Cosmetics had a sample sale last week so I jumped on it. I ordered Autumn, Chocolate, Big Ego, Seduction, Spice, Dirty Deals, Cloud 9 and Isis. I will be doing a swatch post here soon, I promise!

Today was the first day in a really long time I felt like putting make up on so decided to play with some of my recent purchases. First on was Urban Decay’s Primer portion and then Autumn (inner eye) blended with Chocolate (outer eye and crease). To complete the look, I used Urban Decay’s Black out (Naked Palette 2) as eye liner, Urban Decay’s Super Curling Mascara and Urban Decay’s Lip Junkie.

This was my first time playing with any of BFTE’s products and I have to say that my first impression is a positive one. Both shadows were easy to use and buildable. I was a little intimidated at first, my experience with loose powders are far and few between but I am looking forward to working with the rest of my purchases soon.

Even more pretty jewelry from Premier Jewelry Designs

I’ve blogged about Premier Jewelry Designs in June and in Sept and here I am again! I really do love their stuff! I had another party last week and the shipment came in today. I made out really well this time, I had enough in orders to qualify for $280 worth of free jewelry. Here is what I got:

Venice

Venice

I really liked the  muted tones within Venice. So many different colors to play with and something I felt I could use in the summer or winter pretty easily.

Poppy

Poppy

I bought the Poppy necklace previously and instantly regretted not getting the earrings so I picked those up when I saw them still available.

Hot Hot Hot

Hot Hot Hot

This just looked like a really fun necklace. I am really trying to break out of my shell and incorporate more color into my jewelry outside of your standard silver chain. This felt like a safe path to explore.

Island Girl

Island Girl

Going along with the whole wanting to play with more color, I certainly couldn’t pass this up! I already have an outfit I want to pair Island Girl with. Dark jeans, white t shirt and my nude sandals, that screams island, right? 😀

Madird

Madrid

This was a really interesting piece. When I first saw it, I didn’t think much of it but then I tried it on and it really suited me. So I bought it so I can experiment with my growing wardrobe. It should be a fun experiment. 🙂

Zoya Nailpolish Review – Tess

Color Description of Zoya Nail Polish Tess according to Zoya.com

Zoya Nail Polish in Tess can be best described as: Metallic light plum rose with pink, bronze and mauve undertones and silver foil shimmer. A classic fall shade but with a fun foil-like finish.

Color Family: Reds

Finish: Metallic

Intensity: 5 ( 1=Sheer – 5=Opaque )

Tone: Cool

A friend sent this to me as a gift and I have to say, I really do like it. I am not one who likes pink so I am struggling with that a bit but I think for this color, I can get past it pretty quickly. It definitely took two coats to get the full opaque intensity but it was easy to work with and looks lovely.
