Zoya describes Sofia as an exotic dark plum cream

Don't mind the wear and tear, the manicure is a few days old.

Two Nails!

So, I've been slacking on posting my current nails! I just got done painting them, and realized I never posted my last one! So I'll post them together. Enjoy!

This is one of the most unique combinations I've tried thus far! I applied Essie's Midnight Cami (dark shimmery navy blue) & applied two coats of Zoya's Manhattan on top (a green glitter). It turned out to look black with a green overlay. I will be trying out many more things like this in the future! :)

This one was impossible to get the correct NEON color on camera. It is Essie's Pink Parka, which is a bright neon pink that dried to a very matte finish. I have yet to apply a top coat, but will be using Seche Vite for a high shine!

Oh Look! New Nails!

Hey Guys! I painted my nails a new color, already!

This time I used Essie "Lollipop". It's a basic red. I have the mini of this, from the holiday set.

It's a pretty sheer/thin polish, and with 2 coats I can still see where my white is, but thats okay with me. I actually like that it is a thinner polish because I feel that I have more control and it is easier to work with.

Have a great day!

Peachy Keen!

I have been so into my nails lately! It's crazy to think that only a few months ago I maybe polished them once a month, and only filed/clipped them when a nail broke & was too ragged for my liking. Now I do something with them almost every single day! I'm proud of myself though. It makes me feel more pulled together when my nails look good.

But ANYWAYS, on to the swatch! Haha. The polish is China Glaze "Peachy Keen" from the Up & Away Spring 2010 Collection. I have worn this polish a few times already since I received it. It's a great color because it's not too bright & out there, but at the same time it is a perfect pop of color for your nails. I hope that makes sense!

Have a great day!
xoxo, Susan

China Glaze OMG!

This is one nail polish I am so excited to wear! China Glaze "OMG" is one of a kind - at least in my collection - and a GREAT going out polish!

Im not wearing a base or top coat, only because I will probably repaint them tomorrow or the next day!

It's not the easiest one to take pictures of, but I hope they capture the amazing-ness of this polish
as much as possible!

Enjoy, Susan


This is a look I did earlier in the week, and just forgot to post. It was using a coastal scent palette & a few colors from NYX, so I don't remember specifics. Sorry!

Sexy Divine

My Current Nail Polish is Essie's "Sexy Divine". The top photo was taken off of Essie's website to show you the color according to them.

This is a picture of it on my nails. I love this color. It's a deep rich purple with gorgeous shimmer.
I'm planning on keeping this color on my nails for my birthday, which is on Sunday! It's a perfect going out color polish if you ask me.

Stay tuned for many more nail polish swatches. It seems like it's all I'm doing on my blog, but thats okay! haha. I really need to start taking pictures of my makeup again.

xoxo, Susan
