Our Polish stash from April 2012

We have a variety of brands and colors.  I just started collecting Zoya polish and using their color lock system.  What are your favorite Zoya colors?  My youngest and I love pinks and purples.  My oldest daughter loves orange.  What colors do you suggest us to look into or try?

Zoya Kate, Coraline and layed with Belle! Swatches

I thought these were pretty before but with Belle on top they are WOW!  I just love how the irridescent glitter sparkles in the light! (Kate is on my ring finger)

Zoya Birchbox Blogger Collection!

Coraline (tangerine) and Kate (pink grapefruit) (On ring finger).  I plan to layer some Belle on top in a few when I need a change.  Formula is really nice.  I like how it can be sheer or built up for more color.  I placed 2 coats on each nail and I can still see my natural nail under.  These aren't my usual colors of choice but they are fun for the spring/summer!  I'm always drawn to pinks and purples.

Pink Zebra Toes

I used in order:
Beauty Secrets Base Coat
Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Bubblegum Pink 470 (2 Coats)
It's so Easy Stripe Rite in a Magenta glitter color (no color listed got at Sally's Beauty)
Kiss Nail Art Paint silver glitter
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I just striped the magenta first and some silver stripes between.  Making the lines a bit squiggly.

This will last at least 1 week.  I like to switch up after a week but I could get a few extra days if I am busy. 

I have to say I was disappointed with the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in this color because it seems thick and goopey.  I didn't like how it applied so much but I like the color.  I have other Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear and they have a much nicer consistency.

Welcome to my Blog!

Thanks for taking the time to look at my Blog!  I have always enjoyed painting my fingernails and toenails!  I have been blessed with 2 girls that I can practice on and share all my goodies with!  We have quite a few different brand polishes.  We usually pick up colors when we are out and something strikes our fancy.  We recently decided to try Zoya polishes and their color lock system.  I am finally able to paint my fingernails without all the usual peeling that came with other polishes i've used.  So i've been enjoying my new polishes to the fullest.  We are always looking to try something new and exciting with our nails...whether it be a funky color or a new design tutorial we've come across. We decided to start this nail blog and share it.  Things shown here were purchased by me.  I hope to share swatches of polishes as I change up and share nail art that I do.  I also love to hear from you.  If there is a color I need to try or something that wasn't so great for you let me know. 
I also like to watch You Tube for makeup and nail videos.  I follow several blogs with makeup and nail art too.  Have a great day! :)
