Zoya Delight Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Today I have Zoya's Spring Collection - Delight.  Nothing against Zoya but am I the only one wishing for something different for Spring?  You can pretty much guarantee the same shades.  Yes, I know they are Spring shades but something different might be nice.  Sorry for the rambling!  Moving on to the Delight Collection!

Eden - bright Spring pink.  Good coverage but I did have a little pulling from the base.  I applied two coats.

Rayne - magical iridescent blue.  I applied two coats and still had VNL.  Best as an shimmer topper.

Tiana - yummy soft green.  Love this color!  I applied two coats and it was a little streaky.

Lillian - beautiful robin egg blue.  Another favorite!  I applied two coats.

Leslie - pretty iridescent lavender.  Perfect coverage in two coats.

Daisy - dark and beautiful iridescent yellow.  I was really hoping for good things with this yellow.  You know how I love my yellows! Unfortunately, I applied two coats and it was streaky.

Even though some of the lacquers didn't have a perfect formula, they are great for nail art!  I used the entire collection to create this fun rose design! Here are my steps!

Nothing like a bright floral design to make it feel like Spring!

$9 (US) 
Available in top salons, spas and on

Milani Fierce Foils Swatches and Review

Press Sample

I have so many new collections to share and it seems like it is taking forever to post them. I have the swatches done, I just don't seem to have enough time to fit them all in!  Some of them have been out for a little while, and maybe you have seen swatches already, but I am sure you won't complain seeing more!

It's Fierce Foil time!  Milani has released a new collection and it is pretty awesome! 

Venice - a gorgeous blue with hints of pink.  I was worried that the formula would be thin but the application evened out in two coats.  A favorite!

Capri - hot pink with hints of gold.  A very girly foil.  I applied two coats.

Rome - soft, lavender with hints of gold.  I applied two coats.

Milan - chunky gold.  More glitter than foil.  Good coverage for a glitter but sparse when compared to the others in this collection.  Dark rich gold that catches color in light.  I applied two coats.

Sardina - stunning forest green with hints of gold.  Another favorite! I applied two coats.

Florence - beautiful, pearlescent finish.  This is more of a layering polish.  I applied two coats and you can see how thin it is.  

I used the Foils to create this fun thin French.  The bright colors look fantastic next to the light pearlescent Florence.  

Overall I thought that this collection was wonderful.  Each one applied flawlessly, even the chunkiness of Milan.  Any of them would be a great way to spice up a manicure.  Especially Venice and Sardina! 

Available were Milani is sold.  If you order them at they have free shipping on orders of $25 of more.

Barielle Gentle Breeze Swatches and Review

Press Sample

I don't know about you, but I ready for Spring!  The cold and snow are really starting to get annoying.  February is almost over and the freezing temperatures should be too!  Luckily I have some great bright shades and Spring collections to help get thorough the dreary weather!

Today I have the Spring collection from Barielle, Gentle Breeze.

Heaven Sent - lovely, bright sky blue.  Good coverage and application.  I applied two coats.

Under the Sea - pretty, dark teal shimmer.  The formula was a tad thin but it is wearable in two coats.  Careful, it is a stainer.  Make sure you wear a base coat.

Champagne Bubbles - sheer, orange-y nude. Great color but it is a sheer polish. I applied three coats and there were still some bald spots.

Pink Parasol - bubble gum pink.  Another thin formula.  I applied three coats and still had some bald spots.

Gray Sky - light grey shimmer.  Another thin formula, however it evened out in two coats.  Love this grey!

I used the collection to create this fun dotticure.  Don't they look great together?!

Even though some of the collection had thinner formulas they all had smooth application.
