I have been slacking on my Zoya swatches, I know I know...SHAME ON ME! I was really hoping to swatch these when my nails grew out a little longer but I kept putting it off, kept breaking nails and I have had these in my “needs to be swatched bin” for far too long. So even though I can’t show them off on longer nails the way I would have liked to, at least my nails have gone beyond being super crazy nubby. Thank goodness for that! Anyway, the awaken collection consists of 2 creams and 4 metallics in gorgeous pastel shades that are Spring perfection!
"Our fans asked for them and our team listened by creating the most asked for shades in the Magical PixieDust formula. The Zoya Magical PixieDust formula is amped up with spectacular sparkle and holographic texture to create a one of kind look that trully dazzles! As always removal is easy and the Zoya PixieDust formulas offer extended wear without the need for Top or Base Coats- BONUS!!!" - Zoya Blog
Textured = winner in my book, but then if you are a loyal reader of mine you already knew that! LONG LIVE the textured trend!!! I'm so excited that one of them is named Ginni....though I would love it even more if it had one less N in that name, but I'll take what I can get! LOL

Polish TBH: "King's Cross", "Fainting Fancies" & "Floo Powder" from the Diagon Alley Pt. 2 Collection
Today I have a pretty cool post for you. I always get so excited to show off indie polishes that were created for something that I have a passion for! Last year Polish TBH released a set of 6 Harry Potter themed lacquers; the Diagon Alley Collection. Well Christian has been busy whipping up even more HP themed beauties! I now present to you half of Part 2 of the Diagon Alley Collection!

Hey all, I hope everyone is having a great week so far! Today I have a really cool review to show you! Three awesome ladies that create some equally awesome indies collaborated to create this phenomenal Star Wars inspired trio!
Who's ready to see some summer collections! It's that time of the year when you will start seeing all of the awesome summer shades being launched and Zoya never disappoints with their shades!
"The best of all worlds are combined in the Tickled & Bubbly Zoya Summer Collections. Bathed in the colors and vibrancy of South Beach: The Tickled Collection offers 6 wearable (2 coat, full coverage, even application) creams while the Bubbly Collection offers a combination of six, patented 2 coat full coverage, opaque jelly's with a holographic glitter finish. Like a night club on your nail tips!" -Zoya Blog

Last week I showed you all the Blogger Beauties Collection by Cameo Colours Lacquers, if you missed it make sure to check it out! I promise there is a LOT going on in that post and there is something for everyone! Well today I have another brand new collection by Cameo Colours to show you, The Day's of the Week Undies Collection! These are all solid cremes that were created with the intention of using them as a base color for a funky glitter or some awesome nail art! All of them have excellent formulas, like all Cameo's creations, and excellent dry times as well. For this review I decided to pair each "undie" with a glitter topper that I either haven't used in a long time or one I had in my untrieds. Each mani is topped off with Nail Pattern Boldness Digital Flash. I hope you all enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed putting it together for you!

I know we have just broken through into Spring but today I have my first Summer collection to show you! POFA Nail Color is a new brand for me to try, though I had heard of this brand for the first time about a year ago. I unfortunately haven't been able to find out much about this brand, there don't really seem to be any reviews or background info available and I have yet to hear back in regards to if this company is 3/4/5Free and/or cruelty free. Once I get that information I will update this post though. :)
I have 6 shades to show you all today. All 6 are shown as 2 coats. Formula for all were perfect: no flooding, pooling or dragging and they had excellent dry time as well. They all pack an amazing shine and are shown here without a top coat.

Hello loves, happy happy Friday! I am so excited about today's post. I have had the privilege to be one of five bloggers for the new Cameo Colours collection! Each and every polish from this collection has something that makes it special.

Nail Nation 3000: "Love In A Bottle", "Holo In the Bad Lands", "The Memphis Blues" & Pineapple Cuticle Oil
Hello everyone! Long time no see, right? I have had a heck of a few weeks. I won't bore you with all of the details but I had some computer issues, a few nail breaks and some major family stuff pop up. With all that I had to take a break from the blog, however abrupt it was, it was necessary. I wan't to get back into blogging like I had been before but April is looking like it is going to be as hectic as March was. Once things start to look a little more clear I will make sure to let you all in on what is going on. Like I said there are some family things going on and I just don't know how things are going to go from here on out.
I also want to take a brief moment before I start my post here to apologize to Maria of Nail Nation. I had fully intended to post my review a couple of weeks ago, I had my photos ready and everything. I will make no excuses, but simply say I offer my deepest apologies for the delay. I normally do not take this long for a review and it was never my intention to make you wait. Again, Maria, I am so very sorry.
