Milani Hi-Res

Hey y'all!
I hope everyone is having a great day! It is currently sleeting along with some freezing rain at my house, which is very uncommon in the south! If you're enduring crazy weather right now, like me, stay safe! 
Let's get to the polish!

Milani Hi-Res: two coats; base and top coat.
Milani Hi-Res is a light purple holographic polish! The formula was streaky at first, but a second coat evened it out. I was impressed by the holographic payoff, since drugstore brands have a hard time pulling off holographic polishes.
Overall, I really like this polish! I picked it up a while ago on clearance, along with the other colors in the line, and I'm so glad I did!

Have you found any drugstore gems lately?

Zoya Leah with a Rhinestone Bow Accent

Press Samples
Hey y'all! 
Today's post features one of Zoya's new satin polishes and a rhinestone bow from Born Pretty Store!

For this look I used two coats of Zoya Leah, no base or top coat! I added the rhinestone bow, as an accent, by putting a small dot of top coat right wear I wanted the bow to go. I applied the bow and held it down for a few seconds and I was good to go! It didn't budge for the rest of the time I wore it. The bow had a slight curve in it, so it sat perfectly on my nail!
I got the rhinestone bow from Born Pretty Store! It costs $5.09 USD for a set of ten. Make sure to use the code YSG10 for 10% off of your purchase!

Twinsie Thursday: Spring Flowers

Happy Twinsie Thursday everyone! Make sure to stop by Lothwen's blog to view my manicure!

Hello lovelies!!!
Another Twinsie Thursday is upon us and during this one, we try to force the weather to be springy:

Isn't it fun? It is inspired by a fellow blogger, Suzi, but I cannot find the original post. I actually did the design on all 10 nails, something I don't do very often these days, lol! 

So I started with a double base coat, because, you know, yellow. Then two coats of Bourjois "Sunny Sunday" and then I dabbed on some Essence "L.O.L." and dotted on the flowers with various colours. 

This brought me in a good mood! Now go to my blog to see Samantha's super cute pastel design with Zoya's new spring collection!

Zoya Delight

Press Sample
Hi everyone!

Today I have the Zoya's Delight collection for spring 2015! Overall, I liked this collection, so let's get to the polishes!

Zoya Daisy

Zoya Leslie

Zoya Rayne

Zoya Tiana

Zoya Lillian

Zoya Eden

I used two coats for each polish, no base or top coat! All of the polishes had great formulas and dry times. I enjoyed the cream polishes {Tiana Lillian, and Eden} the most, as I'm not a huge fan of shimmers, but if I had to pick a favorite shimmer it would be Leslie!
These retail for  $9.00 USD and can be found on Zoya's website.

What are your thoughts on this spring collection? Love it? Hate it? Let me know below!

Girly Bits I Hit My Bunny Phone

Hey y'all!
Today I have a quick swatch of Girly Bits I Hit My Bunny Phone!

Two coats; base and top coat.

This polish is stunning! It shifts from purple to gold, red, violet, and green.

This is my first indie multi-chrome and very I'm impressed; in fact, this was my first Girly Bits polish! 
What are your favorite multi-chrome polishes?

Zoya Ana & Born Pretty Store Water Decals

Press Sample
Hey y'all!
Today's look is a super simple, yet delicate look using a new satin polish from Zoya and a water decal from Born Pretty Store! 

I started off with two coats of Zoya Ana.
The rose decal came from a sheet labeled HOT-133. I cut the rose out, like you would a temporary tattoo, saturated it with water and the decal slid right off! I placed it on my nail, cut off the excess, and top coated it to make sure it wouldn't budge! 
I'm a fan of water decals as you can move them around to get the perfect placement!

The HOT-133 water decal sheet from Born Pretty Store retails for $2.55USD. Don't forget to use the coupon code YSG10 for 10% off!

Zoya Naturel Satins

Press Sample
Happy Friday!
Today I have swatches of the Zoya Naturel Satin Collection for 2015! I've seen reviews that were all over the place with this collection, but I'm happy to report that I had a good experience! Let's get to the polishes!

Zoya Brittany
Zoya Ana

Zoya Leah

Zoya Rowan

Zoya Sage

Zoya Tove

I used two coats of each polish, no base or topcoat! Each polish had a decent formula and good dry time. I'm on the fence with the Satin finish, but I love these with topcoat (which you will see in a post in a few days)! I really like the muted colors that Zoya included in this collection, espeacially Sage and Tove! 
These retail for  $9.00 USD and can be found on Zoya's website.
